    What disappointed you about Illusion?

    I really tried to like this book...but could not finish it. That doesn't happen very often, but it was all over the place and I just couldn't follow.

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

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

    No


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Sparks took too long to tie the two storylines together. I almost stopped listening many times. The ending was good, but predictable.


    What three words best describe Ron McLarty and January LaVoy ’s performance?

    Good narration.

    On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old Realtor, had three goals: sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she’s about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.

    Richard Delman says: "A singular voice; a horrendous story."

    What did you like best about Still Missing? What did you like least?

    I was pretty interested in this story, but when I realized how the author was going to end it, I became really disinterested... I liked the characters though..

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

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

    I can't decide if it was the story, or the way the story was read that I liked less. The narrator was annoying, but so were alot of the things she had to say.


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Did not like the narration. The way she pronounced things was distracting, and her voice didn't suit the character in my opinion.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I have friends that read these books and really liked them. They may talk me in to trying to read the second one, but I wouldn't buy the second audiobook, especially after reading the other reviews.

    Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. For 30 years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all, until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

    I loved this story and thought it really captured the ups and downs of lifelong friendships. The narration was excellent. Beautifully written.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    I first read the book, and bought the audiobook so my husband could listen to it. I love the story and thought the narrator did a great job. Looking forward to listening to the next two books.

    Dupont University: the Olympian halls of learning housing the cream of America's youth, the roseate Gothic spires and manicured lawns suffused with tradition....Or so it appears to beautiful, brilliant Charlotte Simmons, a sheltered freshman from North Carolina, who has come here on full scholarship. But Charlotte soon learns, to her mounting dismay, that for the upper-crust coeds of Dupont, sex, Cool, and kegs trump academic achievement every time.

    Eric says: "Decadence through the eyes of a ?good girl?"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    Not my favorite audiobook. It was a little too long, and seemed to drag on in most parts. I didn't care or the narrator either.
