    Story

    This book is outstanding. It is very relatable, with amazingly developed characters, lots of unexpected twists, an inspiring and engaging storyline, and an ending that is heart-warming. This book challenges the Christian Church to be better, extend grace, and love people where they are at. My favorite book of all time.

    This heart-stirring tale of a young slave girl, torn between her love for a handsome aristocrat and her faith in God, transcends genres with its awe-inspiring power and emotional intensity.

    Story

    I really tried to give this book a legitimate chance, even though I'm not usually interested in books with a timeframe outside of the past 20 years or so. Based on The Atonement Child and Redeeming Love, I figured I couldn't go wrong with FR. But I don't think I even made it into the 2nd hour of this book. I was bored out of my mind.

    If you've read one DS book, you've read them all. Very repetitive, very cliche, and very boring. The story was not well developed and everything that happened was easily predictable. Not impressed.

    Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

    Brad Cutler, 28, is a rising star at his New York ad agency, about to marry the girl of his dreams. Anyone would agree he has it all - a great career, a beautiful and loving fiancée, and a fairy tale life ahead of him - when memories of a high school girlfriend begin to torment him. Lost innocence and one very difficult choice flood his conscience, and he is no longer sure what the future will bring except for this: he must find his old love and make amends.

    Story

    A very standard Karen Kingsbury formatted book. Interesting characters that remind you of the person you've love to be, with the life you dream of living. Very spiritually uplifting, almost as if you're absorbing scripture and it's practical application in every page. This book tackles a topic that requires a strong stomach, but its a wonderful depiction of the grace of God, and I'm sure it has provided an immeasurable amount of healing in the lives of many.

    The most impressive Jodi book, in my honest opinion. The story is rich in detail, depth, emotion, surprise, and irony. Its a page turner that you can't get enough of, and although the ending is wonderful, you will wish the story wasn't over yet. Highly recommended.

    Story

    The concept of this story is engaging, and it does have a few surprises that keep you interested, but I was dissappointed with the lack of character development and untapped story-depth that could have resulted with such a controversial and engaging topic. Not a bad listen by any standard, but not my favorite either.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    Although this story is nothing insanely twisted or surprising, it is very rich with cultural truth. Reality, in its naked ugliness is exposed, but its done tastefully. But its an uplifting listen. You become to love the characters. There are times when the main character rambles a little, but as soon as the story is redirected back to The Help, your soul will smile. Its not a page turner, but it does give you the warm and fuzzies. This book is a beautiful story of overcoming circumstances and achieving greatness. I've listened to it again and again, and I giggle every time whenever The Help chapters are playing.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Story

    I only picked this because of the rave reviews, but it was painfully boring to listen to. The story lacked substance, the characters were not very intersting, the book was morally crooked, and with only 90 minutes left to the book, I deleted it and washed my hands of it completely due to an awkward aura of demonic presence. Don't waste your money. HUGE mistake!
