    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story

    The reader is great!! Unfortunately the book is very dark and depressing.

    My 17 year old daughter and I took a long road trip visiting universities. She chose this book. The description sounded like a fun teen type story. However the book concentrates on suicide, family violence, teen sex, gay sex, assaults, drugs, and depression.Although my daughter loved it, I wanted to jump out of the car to get away!

    Rachel Gibson's spunky New York Times best-selling romances are confectionary treats for listeners. Curvaceous Adele Harris is prepared to give up dating forever. But when she travels home to console her sister, whose marriage is on the rocks, she runs into ex-flame Zach Zemaitis - and passions are reignited.

    The reader can not perform the role of a man. Horrible voice for the male. Had to stop listening to it. If the reader can not do voices well, he/she should just read the book without them.

    Austen’s classic tale of love and values in the class-conscious England of the late 18th century is her most beloved. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in landed-gentry society. One of the most popular novels of all time. Has been adapted to countless variations for the screen.

    First, if you are going to read/perform one of the world's greatest books, you should at least sound interested. In addition, telling this story with an American accent just killed it.

    After the brutal murder of an art gallery owner, the beautiful and mysterious artist Holly Troy seems to be the key to finding out what really happened on the night of the homicide. Unfortunately, Holly also suffers from dissociative identity disorder, and many of her personalities come straight from classical mythology, from the powerful Cronos and Pandora to the fickle Fates. Holly has no idea who she was the night of the crime - whether she witnessed anything, or even if she was the killer herself. Homicide detective Orson Cheever must unravel the complex labyrinth of Holly’s mind before he can find the truth.

    Story

    This story regarding a suspect with multiple personality disorder was very believable, intelligent, and interesting. I was very impressed with the author's abiity to make the reader really care about all of the characters. This was my second book by this author, and both were great.
    The reader did a fantastic job at being able to portray all of the characters - even when many were in the same scene at the same time. Many narrators are not successful with voices opposit to their sex. This narrator performed women without sounding so odd that it was distracting.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story

    The Racketeer was not, in my opinion, one of Grisham's best books. I guess I like his books that are based upon true events, and this one is true fiction. Because it is true fiction, some of the events in the book are not really plausable, and I found myself not really liking the protaganist.
    The reader, however, did a very good job. Although his pace was a bit slow at the start, he was very adebt to performing multiple voices.

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    Author uses a bad story to enhance sex, not sex to enhance a good story. Don't buy
