    That Old Cape Magic is a novel of deep introspection and every family feeling imaginable, with a middle-aged man confronting his parents and their failed marriage, his own troubled one, his daughter's new life and, finally, what it was he thought he wanted and what in fact he has.

    Fred Pike says: "Instantly-recognizable Richard Russo book"
    "Sticks with you"
    Overall

    I wasn't sure how I felt about it as I was "reading" it. But as time passes I find myself thinking of plot points and scenes again and again. It definitely grew on me.

    Story

    The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

    Eva Gannon says: "Perhaps An Early Work?"
    "Under the Bed?"
    Overall

    I read somewhere they found this unfinished under his bed after he died. I can believe that. It's a good decent read. But not as good as I've come to expect from him.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"
    "A Great Listen"
    Overall

    Great book. Great narration. Even if you've already seen the movie, this would be a good read as there is a lot of good fun that didn't make it into the movie.

    Here is a full-stage dramatisation, starring Sir Luwrence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud and Claire Bloom.

    Martin says: "Mangled Film Soundtrack"
    "Too Difficult to Follow as a Dramatization"
    Overall

    It was too difficult for me to follow the plot as a dramatization. Perhaps if I already knew the story.

  • Heat Wave

    Story

    The title character from ABC's hit television series Castle kicks off his new series of books featuring tough and sexy New York police detective Nikki Heat with a bang.

    Donna says: "Not like the show......."
    "Ok Book. Boring Narrator."
    Overall

    The story itself was pretty much what I expected from a book "written" by a character from a TV show. Light entertainment. The narrator had a very small range of voices, so it was often difficult to tell which character was speaking - even if the character was male or female.

    Story
    (933)

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    chris says: "Entertained"
    "A good choice for an audiobook"
    Overall

    It was very easy to follow the plot in this audiobook. Just a few characters to keep track of. I'm not really a big Stephen King fan, but this was a decent read.
