    What made the experience of listening to Speaks the Nightbird the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was great and really made the listener feel like he/she was interacting somehow with the characters in the story yet his voice did not drone on and put you to sleep. The whole story was very stimulating to the imagination.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot keep me interested and anticipating what would happen next or who the culprit was. To find out in the end . . . wow!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenario with the Native Americans was great and gave more depth to the story and characters.


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

    No extreme reaction, but satisfaction except I would have liked to see Rachel end up with the hero in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Just keep up the great work! Onward and Upward McCammon!

    Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilts novels are as lovingly crafted and heartwarming as the homemade quilts featured prominently in each story. The milestone 20th entry in this charming series, The Giving Quilt chronicles the week after Thanksgiving- Quiltsgiving- as residents of Elm Creek Manor find creative ways to answer the question, ''Why do you give?''

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No, but it's not a book I would have chose to read. It was a discussion book for our reading group.


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

    I am not sure changing anything would have made a difference.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by the narrators?

    Yes.


    Could you see Room being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Please, no!
