    On a rainy morning, not long after the funeral of his mother, Commissario Brunetti and Ispettore Vianello respond to a 911 call reporting a body floating near the steps in one of Venice's side canals. Reaching down to pull it out, Brunetti's wrist is caught by the silkiness of golden hair, and he sees a small foot - together he and Vianello lift a dead girl from the water.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story should have been simpler to follow. Just too much extra information in it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Robin Cook's latest.


    What aspect of David Colacci’s performance would you have changed?

    His narration is very good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Girl of His Dreams?

    The end.

    George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes....I like Robin Cooks novels. Always worth checking out.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Robin Cook? Why or why not?

    Yes....I'm hoping he will go back to his more realistic characters, like Jack Stapleton.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    He captures the real essence of the characters.


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

    Yes....not sure of who could play main role. He would need to play "naive" very well.


    Any additional comments?

    I used to excitedly await Robin Cooks new books. Now I tend to wait and see the reviews. He's gotten a little unrealistic. I found this one the same....but I'm not giving up on him!

    Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

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

    The narrating of this book was irritating to listen to, so I just couldn't listen to it. Perhaps a teen would enjoy it.


    Has Winter Garden turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't care for the 'over-acting' tones. It seemed juvenile to me.


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

    Don't know, as I didn't finish it.
