    We join Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call as they are just beginning to deal with the perplexing tensions of adult life -- Gus, and his great love, Clara Forsythe, Call and Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him -- when they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

    "Poor narrator"
    Overall

    The book is a good follow up to Lonesome Dove...prequel....but the narrator was a big disappointment. Very poor western accent and hard to distinguish between characters.

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    JK has proven her ability to write beyond Harry Potter--but this book was tough to keep reading because of its difficult and dark story. I suppose we need to know that there are people like Crystal Weedon and her family, but why couldn't there have been at least one mostly good character (besides a dead guy)?!

    I did finish the book, and even though it is thoroughly depressing, I was satisfied and felt closure at the end. I am now searching for something light and humorous to follow this up with, though!!

    Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.

    CDN says: "A Good Listen (except the music)"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I appreciate Jodi's ability to tackle tough issues and weave them into a story,but this one falls desperately short of a narrative and ends up only a commentary on gay marriage. I was disappointed not in the subject matter, but in the lack of plot and story. I finally gave up 2/3rds of the way through it. I hung in waiting for a twist that would interest me, but it is just too predictable.

    When Vivi and Siddalee Walker, an unforgettable mother-daughter team, get into a savage fight over a New York Times article that refers to Vivi as a "tap-dancing child abuser", the fallout is felt from Louisiana to New York to Seattle. Siddalee, a successful theater director with a huge hit on her hands, panics and postpones her upcoming wedding to her lover and friend, Connor McGill. Vivi's intrepid gang of lifelong girlfriends, the Ya-Yas, sashay in and conspire to bring everyone back together.

    Amazon Customer says: "As usual the book is better than the movie"
    "Excellent book, outstanding narrator"
    Overall

    This audiobook had me laughing, crying, nodding my head and shuddering as the narrator told the story of a mother/daughter relationship and the stories behind it. It made me realize that we all have a story--that few people know. We all deserve to be loved for who we are, not who others think we should be. I will be more open and loving to the women in my family, as well as in my little world. I loved this book and will listen to it again when I've had time to live a bit first. Then I'll come back to the Ya-ya's for their wisdom! Judith Ivey does an amazing job giving each character their own voice and they are each exactly what I would have heard in my head if I had been reading it myself.

    LOVED IT!

    Young Michael, an illegal immigrant escaping the troubles in Northern Ireland is strong and fearless and clever, just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month.

    Robert says: "What an amazing book"
    "Interesting story, not great accents by reader"
    Overall

    The story is interesting, unlike any story I've read before. I can't quite figure out the purpose of the story. I liked the Irish accent by the narrator, but the South American accent is terrible! Reminds me of a Transylvanian vampire! Oh well.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    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.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    The story started out very slow...and confusing with so many names and little character expansion. It did finally get good and was a good read (but not a great read). The narrator did a good job differentiating the characters.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    What a fun read! The narrator was excellent...I really enjoyed this book!
