    Autumn 1937: War is coming to Europe, and French and German intelligence operatives are locked in a life-and-death struggle on the espionage battlefield. At the French embassy, the new military attaché, Colonel Jean-François Mercier, a decorated hero of the 1914 war, is drawn into a world of abduction, betrayal, and intrigue.

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

    They're different? I listened to the audio version and the story line seemed rather disconnected.


    If you’ve listened to books by Alan Furst before, how does this one compare?

    Not yet, but I do like his writing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The journey to look at the german's military preparation and entering the area where the tank traps were buried.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was full of moments of suspense. I held my breath in anticipation several times.


    Any additional comments?

    The sex scenes tended to separate the novel into two parts. Though they were well-developed and well written, they seemed obligatory and that made me cringe.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    If you could sum up Gone Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Gentle reader beware


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    No favorites, they were all puppets.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found it trite, manufactured and uncomfortable. It brought noise to my thoughts.


    Any additional comments?

    My book group found this book fascinating and they would recommend this. Some people could really relate.

  • Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - and Keep - Love

    Is there a science to love? In this groundbreaking audiobook, psychiatrist and neuroscientist Amir Levine and psychologist Rachel S. F. Heller reveal how an understanding of attachment theory - the most advanced relationship science in existence today - can help us find and sustain love. Attachment theory forms the basis for many best-selling books on the parent/child relationship, but there has yet to be an accessible guide to what this fascinating science has to tell us about adult romantic relationships - until now.

    Would you listen to Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - and Keep - Love again? Why?

    Yes, I will be listening to this book again because it is constructive in identifying behaviors in relationships that don't have to happen and provides good ideas in addressing them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and How It Can Help You Find - and Keep - Love?

    Looking back into my past relationships was a task to perform that struck a note with getting in touch with my own behavior and my choices.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Walter Dixon?

    Yes, but that's a tough one due to the clinical narration aspect of the book. I commend him on the job he did, I bet it was a real challenge.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to both single and in-relationship folks. I found it to be a bit lacking in innovative ways to describe each character and their issues, but other than that the information made its point and I'm still thinking about it.
