    Suburban sleuth Christine Bennett is moved and intrigued by two poignant mementos treasured by her late Aunt May. The first is a sad little note mourning the death of a young man lost in a Connecticut wood; the other, an obituary honoring a wealthy local manufacturer who committed suicide just after his splendid 50th birthday celebration. Why did her aunt never mention these virtually simultaneous tragedies? Chris’ investigative instincts are irresistibly whetted - especially by the bizarre discovery that the victims, though strangers, were found wearing each other’s sneakers.

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

    I thought this might be a cozy mystery, but the narrater spoke in a monotone and it became very distracting.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Monotone-maybe some expression?

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

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

    I loved the Da Vinci code, I keep expecting something better- never even finished the Lost Symbol. I did finish this, but it was very boring. A very contrived plot-I'm a physician-totally unbelievable story about the amnesia?! Don't wast your time.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dan Brown again?

    No


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the only reason I stayed with it, would listen to him again!


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

    disappointment

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    What does Tom Hollander bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't think I would have read it with out his narration.It made it much more entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    I had expected much more than this very depressingbook. Characters were w/o any redeeming factors. I had loved the Potter books and think shes a great writer but the story was no more than a depressing soap opera. did fast forward thru many spots and kept thinking it would get better then it ended.
