    Story

    The famous Saddlebred show in Shelbyville, Kentucky, is the perfect opportunity for remarried newlyweds Harry and Fair Haristeen to finally go on their long-delayed (second) honeymoon: a chance to combine business and pleasure, as well as to drop in on some old friends.

    "Cozy No More"
    Overall

    Mrs. Brown's traditional cozy mystery stories took a turn for a rougher element this time. While the story was interesting and enjoyable, I missed the quiet little town with the friendly Post Office. Missing, also, were all the old town inhabitants of the previous books.
    I quickly became bored with all the horse show lore and also resented Mrs. Brown taking up my time with a lecture on illegal immigration.Most of all, I was unhappy with the foul language her rough characters spouted in this book. All in all, I would have to say, this latest read did not stand up to her previous books.

  • Nim's Island

    Story

    Nim lives on an island in the middle of the wide blue sea, shared by only her father, Jack, a marine iguana called Fred, a sea lion called Selkie, a turtle called Chica, and a satellite dish for her e-mail. No one else in the world lives quite like Nim, and she wouldn't swap places with anyone.

    "Enchanting for All"
    Overall

    I loved the movie but I'm glad I didn't miss the book! It is delightful and so cleverly written. This is a true classic in children's literature! -Not that it is just for children. It has appeal for adults, too. The author's plain but sprightly narrative is most engaging. A very worthwhile book!

  • Standing in the Rainbow

    Story

    Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, "utterly irresistible."

    "Fannie Flagg-Always a Treat"
    Overall

    Fannie's books are always a treat and this one is no exception. Although it is a little more far reaching than others I have read, it is no less fascinating. She captures the life of average America and punches a little humor into it. She also captures the era in which she has staged her story. This book follows the lives of several people. It was a treat to read (hear)!

  • Water for Elephants

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 26 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Excellent but Explicit"
    Overall

    Overall, I enjoyed this audio book very much. The writing style was rich, the story line interesting. The narrators were excellent and turned the book into a drama. It was like listening to an old time radio show. My objection is this: for those of us concerned with explicit sex in our reading material, there should be some kind of a warning. Although this book only had two raunchy scenes, this was enough to cause me to only give the book 4 stars instead of 5.
