    What did you love best about Regeneration: The Regeneration Trilogy, Book 1?

    If you enjoy history combined with psychology, this is a good book. Although a little dry in parts, the characteracters bring meaning to how horrible war is and how change in a science that cannot be measured or always seens as scientific must have been difficult at the least.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Pat Barker? Why or why not?

    Yes,


    What about Peter Firth’s performance did you like?

    The patience and feelings that the doctor also experiences himself are portrayed in his voice very clearly.

  • The Graveyard Book

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Where does The Graveyard Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Average


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author reveals subtle hints about his characters and who they really are. By doing so he treats his listeners/readers intellect with respect.


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

    None others listened to.

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    Story
    (42)

    Journalist Rick Bragg has built a soaring monument to the grandfather he never knew, and in the process created a powerfully intimate piece of American history as it was experienced by the working people of the deep South, a glorious record of a life of character, tenacity and indomitable joy, and an unforgettable tribute to a vanishing culture.

    Kate says: "Deeply moving"
    "An honest view of an American family"

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

    Rick Bragg, telling this story about his family, particularly his grandfather, is honest, gritty, heartwarming, humorous... but mainly 'real.'


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bragg's ability to build characters that we can all relate to and have all had as family members ourselves is remarkable.


    Which character – as performed by Rick Bragg – was your favorite?

    Charlie; he is both a hero and a scoundrel. But Ava too has her moments on center stage---particularly when she visits her baby daughter's grave after many decades have past since her child's death. Bragg's sensitivity to her feelings and the reaction of those who were with her is remarkable.

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett.
