    Overall

    In the genre of telling the back-story to childhood classics this tale is tops! Ever wonder HOW Peter Pan came to be a flying boy? Or WHERE Tinkerbell came from? Or WHY Captain Hook despises Peter Pan? This is the first book in the brilliant trilogy by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson that answers these questions and more. The story is fun, inventive and fast-paced; taking you from the docks of London, to the storm-tossed highs seas to a far away island. Jim Dale's perfect narraration is as good as the award winning performances he gave in the Harry Potter series. This is, simply, one of the best audiobooks we own. When we have nothing else to listen to we grab this one - again! My two girls 9 and 10 never tire of hearing the adventures of Peter and Molly!

  • Look Again

    When reporter Ellen Gleeson gets a "Have You Seen This Child?" flyer in the mail, she almost throws it away. But something about it makes her look again, and her heart stops - the child in the photo is identical to her adopted son, Will. Her every instinct tells her to deny the similarity between the boys, because she knows her adoption was lawful. But she's a journalist and won't be able to stop thinking about the photo until she figures out the truth.

    Elaine says: "Excellent Book"
    "Great story, but predicatable"
    Overall

    I wouldn't miss anything by Lisa Scottoline, she's one of my favorites - however, this book felt more like a Mary Higgins-Clark story! There is none of the great drama revolving around strong women lawyers; the main character is, instead, a reporter and a mom. The book's outcome is easy to guess and leaves little to the imagination. Ultimately this is a sweet tale that will tug at your heartstrings and leave you feeling good, if a bit disappointed in Scottoline's storytelling.

    Overall

    This audiobook is read by John McDonoughn NOT Flo Gibson! This, however, was a pleasant surprise as McDonough is one of the best narrators of audiobooks around. His many voices and his reading of the story are pleasing to the ear. It feels as if your grandfather is reading it to you and is as much into the story as YOU are! I would highly recommend this version, especially if you are listening with a boy.

    Fresh out of Yale Law, Ben Addison is a new clerk for one of the Supreme Court's most respected justices. He's as bright and conscientious as they come - and just as green. When Ben inadvertently reveals the confidential outcome of an upcoming Court decision, one of the parties in the case makes millions. Needless to say, Ben starts to sweat.

    Ken says: "The Tenth Justice"
    "Unabridged, please!"
    Overall

    Brad Meltzer's stories are many-layered and complicated, and this story is no exception. The abrdged version can never do justice to all of the goings-on in this story and you are often left going, HUH? when the charcaters do something because of the un-skillful abridgement. Audible, you would do well to offer this book in the unabridged format! Overall I was left disappionted, because I LOVE Meltzer's stories especially Zero Game - one of the best ever!

    From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels continue to make best-selling history each summer. In the 13th book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious, hottest, chase yet.

    Kelly says: "Same flavor, different package"
    "Plum Lovin'!"
    Overall

    I am a Stephanie Plum fan and this is her best yet! It makes me wonder where we will go next with these original, sassy make-you-laugh-out-loud characters. If need a light-hearted, fun, feel-good read this is for you!
