  • The Goldfinch

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Goldfinch to be better than the print version?

    David Pittu narrated this book beautifully. I can't imagine getting the same impact from reading about the complex characters in story. He depicted the voices and accents beautifully.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Goldfinch?

    There are many memorable moments in The Goldfinch. One, in particular, was the monologue inside Theo's head as he is sitting across from Pippa over dinner. This was particularly poignant.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is probably what happened in the museum. The writing was so spectacular that I felt as though I were experiencing it.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A young boy's grief is transferred to an obsession over the last painting he and his mother viewed in a museum.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is beautifully written. It is its' own work of art.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    What did you love best about Killing Kennedy?

    I loved that the author states from the beginning of the book that it is based on fact. With all the conspiracy theories out there, it was great to hear facts without judgment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character would have to be Jacqueline Kennedy. She was so young and endured so much. During the most trying times, she was strong, stoic and classy. Her example is unforgettable.


    Which character – as performed by Bill O'Reilly – was your favorite?

    I did not have a favorite character as performed by Bill O'Reilly. I think he did a great job narrating the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    We all know JFK was assassinated, you decide why.


    Any additional comments?

    Being it was the 50th Anniversary of the death of President Kennedy, I thought this was a particularly good read.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think this is a very healthy and satisfying way to eat. Even if you do not follow the plan 100 percent, there is much to be learned from this great book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat to Live?

    The one thing I've taken away from this book is that we, as a general population, eat mostly processed foods. Basically, the foods are stripped of their original nutrition and then colors, flavors and unhealthy fats and sodium are added. We've become so used to eating this way, we've accepted diet-related illness as a fact of life.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel this book is worth the read. I've learned a lot from this book. Healthy choices are so much easier now.
