    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, I would not recommend this book. I was disappointed with the narration, the originality and the story.


    What could Jill Shalvis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Been a little more creative.. and limit the times "Oh, hell" was used to convey a character's thought.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Was The Sweetest Thing worth the listening time?

    Not for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased the book as a 2 for 1 deal and after searching other reviews thought it would be a good choice....wrong, not for me, quite banal.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "An Exceptional Listening Experience!!"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Good House in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious, funny, surreal


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hildy, of course! I love the way she could justify every "occasion"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Thanksgiving dinner was great, but every "occasion" was equally amusing!


    If you could take any character from The Good House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Hildy (and her ex-husband)...I think it would be shear fun, of course I would have to be the DD!!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved, loved this book, didn't want it to end!

    Layken Cohen isn't your typical 18-year-old. After the recent death of her father, she is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's slowly losing hope. Enter Will Cooper: The 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for performing "Slams". Will and Layken immediately form an intense and emotional connection neither of them knew they needed until it was found.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story had good elements, but no real climax.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have included some unpredictable scenarios.


    What does Heidi Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator's performance was very good, not sure how I would/could improve it...


    Do you think Slammed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No...I think it would be uneventful and predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    I do think young adults would probably enjoy more than a more mature audience.

    Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

    Where does The Prince of Tides rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As my headline indicates, this has been my best listening experience.


    What other book might you compare The Prince of Tides to and why?

    Wow, tough to answer...this book and narrator are in a league of their own.


    Which character – as performed by Frank Muller – was your favorite?

    Tom, of course. I loved and appreciated his sarcasm and insightfulness.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Prince of Tides and why?

    I would say, again Tom, but his two siblings run a close second.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was impeccable! I have tried to search other works by him and the author. This is just a great start to new (for me) artists.

    What did you love best about The Ice Man?

    I found the book eerily compellling.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The actions by this man are hard to believe. This "stuff" must really happen.

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No
