    Pat Conroy is without doubt America's favorite storyteller, a writer who portrays the anguished truth of the human heart and the painful secrets of families in richly lyrical prose and unforgettable narratives. Now, in Beach Music, he tells of the dark memories that haunt generations, in a story that spans South Carolina and Rome and reaches back into the unutterable terrors of the Holocaust.

    Ella says: "Memorable"
    "Beach Music is another hit by Conroy!"

    This mesmerizing first novel tells the epic journey of Lin, an escaped convict who flees maximum security prison in Australia to disappear into the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The keys to unlock the mysteries that bind Lin are held by two people: his mentor Khader Khan, mafia godfather and criminal-philosopher; and the beautiful, elusive Karla, whose passions are driven by dangerous secrets.

    Would you listen to Shantaram again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again because it is written and performed so well. I learned so much about India. I felt as though I was there. The characters were so vivid and true. I wish it could have continued!

    The Brightest Star in the Sky follows seven neighbors whose lives become entangled when a sassy and prescient spirit pays a visit to their Dublin townhouse with the intent of changing at least one of their lives. But what will this metamorphosis be and who will the sprite choose?

    Jan says: "Terrible sound quality, worse narration"
    "Narration is too painful a listen"
    Overall

    Marian Keyes is one of my favorite authors. I eagerly await her books. I was extremely disappointed with the narrator for this book. She reads without inflection or feeling. I had to stop listening it was so painful.
