    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"
    "Very enjoyable book"
    Overall

    I greatly enjoyed the storyline in this book. The author does a good job developing the characters and giving just the right amount of history to develop the scene. I felt that there was a good mix of humor and darkness to make the book believable. I will be buying more books from this author.

  • Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By Sheri Fink
    • Narrated By Kirsten Potter

    Story

    In the tradition of the best writing on medicine, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs five days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the listener into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and to maintain life amidst chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several health professionals faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days at Memorial, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Five Days at Memorial the most enjoyable?

    Very interesting look into an event which many of us only experienced from a distance. The book was fair to many sides in this scenario but at times seems to show favoritism towards real people/businesses reflected in this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anna Poe; I was torn on what to think about her


    What about Kirsten Potter’s performance did you like?

    She was clear and put emphasis properly on words


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me question some of my thinking on end of life scenarios. I work with an organization which was included in this book and I didn't realize that when I purchased this book. It was hard listening to some of their involvement in this event.


    Any additional comments?

    One of those books that you stay in the car to listen to even when you have arrived at your destination

  • Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 13 mins)

    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"
    "Not very funny"
    Overall

    This book was good for a few laughs, but I was very underwhelmed by the lack of humor. Chelsea Handler is much funnier in person than she is in print. Don't waste your money on this book.
