    John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

    Overall

    Really a wonderful story. I laughed and cried (lucky for me I have a long commute and the sad part was at the beginning so I was able to compose myself before work!) I am a dog person so I really connected with the author's story, but I think that anybody would enjoy the story. The author narrates which gives it a more personal approach. I loved it!!!

  • If I am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation

    In April 2002, Janine Latus' youngest sister, Amy, wrote a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer. "Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved", it read, "but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of ways. Based on his criminal past, writing this out just seems like the smart thing to do. If I am missing or dead this obviously has not protected me...."

    Angie says: "I felt deceived by this book"
    "ok"
    Overall

    This was not what I expected from the book. THe title and most of the story line makes you think that the main character is going to be the victim but then towards the end there is the real victim exposed. I couldn't stop listening to the book because of its dramatic nature but it really did not give me a whole lot to work with in the end.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Pretty good"
    Overall

    This book is kind of hard at times because of its heavy material. There are not a lot of pleasant moments in the book but it is wonderfully written and it is clear why it has been on the best sellers list for so long.

  • It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life

    People around the world have found inspiration in the story of Lance Armstrong - a world-class athlete nearly struck down in his prime, who fought back to win the world's most grueling test of cycling, the Tour de France. It's Not About the Bike is the amazing story of Armstrong's journey from inauspicious beginnings, through triumph, tragedy, transformation, and transcendence.

    Brenda says: "Inspirational"
    "Good"
    Overall

    I am a big Lance fan and enjoyed the book. It made me respect him even more by listening to all of the hardships he experience. The only disappointing aspect was the fact that he did not narrate the book himself. The narrator was a disappointment.

    In many ways, Carrie Parker is like any other eight-year-old: playing make-believe, dreading school, dreaming of faraway places. But even her imaginative mind can't shut out the realities of her impoverished North Carolina home or help her protect her younger sister, Emma.

    Overall

    I loved this book. Not for the actual story which was entertaining but for the ending. I can normally see something coming, but this was straight out of left field. I would recommend this to anyone just so they could be surprised by the ending!

    In 1993, Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket. Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the 22-year-old was never found. Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the district attorney. A man accused of two heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.

    Joel says: "Another excellent Connelly novel."
    "Alright"
    Overall

    This is my first experience with the author so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't disappointed. I did look forward to getting in the car and listening to it because there was a pretty good amount of suspense involved. But, I found it a little predictable and thought the ending was a little flat.

    Everything in Elizabeth Egan's life has its place, from the espresso cups in her gleaming kitchen to the swatches and paint pots of her interior-design business. Order and precision keep life under control, and keep Elizabeth's heart safe from the pain and hurt she has suffered in the past. Being a reluctant mother to her six-year-old nephew while trying to keep her design business on track is a full-time job for Elizabeth.

    L. Calder says: "Ingenious story line, lovely narrator"
    "OK"
    Overall

    It was an unexpected story from this author. I read her first book "P.S. I love you" a couple years ago and loved it. And then skipped her second book "Rosie Dunne" because of the style. I picked up this one because I really like the first and was surprised that there was a fantasy element to it. However, it was a good development of characters and I found it fun and easy to listen to. Good narration. I would recommend for an easy read.

    Striking, heartfelt, and utterly engrossing, Dispatches from the Edge is an unforgettable memoir that takes us behind the scenes of the cataclysmic events of our age and allows us to see them through the eyes of one of America's most trusted, fearless, and pioneering reporters.

    I like Cooper and saw him on Oprah promoting this book and was prompted to buy it. I think that it was ok, but I didn't finish it. I got a little bored with the stories, but I am sure that an adventure lover would enjoy it.

    PLEASE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!!!!! The absolute worst book that I have ever wasted my time on. Completely pointless story with a very stupid concept, flat characters and horrible ending. I beg you not to listen to this book and waste the valuable hours that it will take!!!! PLEASE!!!

    The definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Into the Wild. Read by the author. Also, hear a Fresh Air interview with Krakauer conducted shortly after his ordeal.

    I absolutely loved this book. I find his writing very entertaining with great descriptions. I loved almost everything about this book. I would love to meet the author. If you like this book, I would recommend "Into the Wild" another of his novels.
