    In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times best-selling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world - no matter how out of place they feel.

    This is a really fun read with gorgeous imagery. A chick flick with literary pizzazz.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    This book made me be the crazy person on the bus laughing to myself the whole way to work and the whole way home. If you like funny things and want to be happy, read this book.

  • A Visit from the Goon Squad

    Story

    Jennifer Egan brings her unique gifts as a novelist and short story writer to a compulsively listenable narrative that centers on Bennie Salazar, an aging punk rocker and record executive, and the beautiful Sasha, the passionate, troubled young woman he employs.

    Laurene says: "Excellent, subtle, moving"
    "Good book, not for audio"
    Overall

    Good book, I'll probably read it again, but next time on the page. There are so many characters it's really hard to follow sometimes. Perhaps Audible could attach a photo with it that has a list of the characters? Don't know if it would give too much away, but I think it would really help.
    So, unless you are in for a mental exercise, I'd say get this one in paper rather than audio.

  • Skippy Dies

    Story

    This touching and uproarious novel by author Paul Murray made everyone’s best fiction of 2010 lists, including The Washington Post, Financial Times, Village Voice, and others. Why Skippy dies and what happens next is the mystery that links the boys of Dublin’s Seabrook College (Ruprecht Van Doren, the overweight genius obsessed with string theory; Carl, the teenager drug dealer and borderline psychotic; Philip Kilfether, the basketball-playing midget) to their parents and teachers in ways that no one could have imagined.

    Laura says: "Funny, touching, entertaining"
    "Moving and delicious writing"
    Overall

    A great story filled with delectably vulgar descriptions. Some people say it started slow, but I never felt that way. If you've ever lost someone, there is a lot to be gotten from this book. Beautiful message, beautiful writing, beautiful narration.
    HIGHLY recommended!

    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.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Wonderful!"

    The narrators were fabulous, the plot was intriguing, and the story was gorgeously written. A must read, whether you believe it's fiction or not.

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Good, but not great"
    Overall

    I think this book was good, but the suspense was highly lacking. If it hadn't been for the forward (which was a scene from the very end of the book), I'm not sure there would have been much interest on my part at all. The narrators were alright, but lacked good character voices. All in all though, I still enjoyed it. A fun little book.
