    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

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

    The audio tape brings this story to life. The voices were cast perfectly. A true Mississippi woman, I love the way the author knows all of those southern rules, and some that were before my time.

After a horrible death occurs that's a little too close for comfort, she can no longer ignore the power of the evil doll...and frantically realizes her secret past might be catching up with her.

    What made the experience of listening to Voodoo or Die the most enjoyable?

    I loved how the characters in this series are introduced and reappear in each book.


    Have you listened to any of Maureen Jones’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is a good reader but needs to stop using the west coast word for garage and use the southern pronunciation. Its annoying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    License to Thrill is a romantic adventure in the spirit of super-cool, super-sexy Agent 007! He wasn't the man she wanted to trust...but when the stakes turn deadly, it's nice to have a hard body between her and trouble! She wasn't the woman he expected to fall for...and he has a bad feeling a bulletproof vest isn't going to protect his heart this time!

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I loved the book but the reader ruined it


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her imitation of English accents was horrible and distracting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Loved the story line which was ruined by the reader

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    What did you love best about Proof of Heaven?

    The authors background and education gave this some credibility. This book is so different than most books about nde that focus on religious conversions. Much more inline with the experiences my freind had.

    None


    Which character – as performed by Eben Alexander – was your favorite?

    None


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have rated this a 5 but the details were a little murky.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    The development of a major resort complex at the southern end of Pear Island, affectionately known as Breakfast Island, is turning the town upside down. Local residents, summer people, and mainland fishermen are all hopping mad that the peace of their retreat is being shattered. But who is angry enough to murder?

    What did you love best about The Cat Who Came to Breakfast?

    I have read all the cat books and must say that the audio versions are even better than the books, especially with Guidall as the reader. Just makes me understand the characters better hearing his interpretation.


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

    Not really, this is light reading, cute and fun


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He nails the lead character and actually makes him much more likeable
