    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Story

    Stephen King has some very interesting thoughts about the gun culture in America.
    As a Canadian, I learned some things. I certainly agreed with him about the ridiculous media coverage of these events.

    Maeve Binchy delivers a timely and topical tale on the fickle nature of docu-soaps in Quentin's. In an age in which everyday people are becoming overnight celebrities via the medium of television, Ella Brady is a documentary film-maker who wants to bring the tale of the eponymous Dublin restaurant to the screen. Quentin's has had its fair share of ups and downs over the years and has become the meeting point for a lot of characters, including some familiar faces from previous Binchy novels.

    Story

    Kate Binchy is a good narrator. I have listened to several of Maeve Binchy's novels.
    I like to listen at night and they are simple stories which don't keep me awake (that's a good thing!) However, I didn't think this was one of her better books. With several stories being presented, it became rather disjointed. I much preferred Scarlet Feather and Tara Road.
