    Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat is home away from home for this inseparable Plainview, Indiana, trio. Dubbed "The Supremes" by high school pals in the tumultuous 1960s, they weather life’s storms together for the next four decades. Now, during their most challenging year yet, dutiful, proud, and talented Clarice must struggle to keep up appearances as she deals with her husband’s humiliating infidelities. Beautiful, fragile Barbara Jean is rocked by the tragic reverberations of a youthful love affair. And fearless Odette engages in the most terrifying battle of her life....

    What made the experience of listening to The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat the most enjoyable?

    This book had me hooked from the first paragraph. The narration was great, the story line was fantastically funny but also has some very serious themes running through it. There wasn't a single thing I didn't like about this book. I'm listening to it for a second time -- something I rarely do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat?

    The first paragraphs about hot flashes -- it was so spot on it had me rolling


    What about Adenrele Ojo and Pamella D'Pella ’s performance did you like?

    Their intonations, passion and overall 'acting' ability they brought to reading their lines. There is nothing worse than a book read in monotones -- these ladies truly brought it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    My favorite is the hospital scene where she responds to all she's heard while she's under -- hysterical!

    For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly - happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does...in loss. After Cam's death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam's favorite spot on the remote coast of Maine.

    What did you like best about Off Season? What did you like least?

    The settings in Maine were interesting. I sort of like the humor related to the 'talking' cat.Overall the characters and their reactions to the various situations created for them were not credible at all.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Rivers Siddons again?

    Probably not


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I've read almost all of Anne Rivers Siddons books. This was very poor quality. She seems have joined the ranks of other commercially successful authors like John Grisham and James Patterson. Instead of thoughtfully creating interesting and creative stories they begin pushing out formulaic books where the plot is basically the same and only the names change.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.

    Sherry says: "Thank You"
    "Very Classy!"
    Overall

    Brilliant and classy thing to do. Thank you.

    Happy Holidays to the entire Audible team ~

    The novel opens in the present. At its center: Toby O'Dare - a contract killer of underground fame on assignment to kill once again. A soulless soul, a dead man walking, he lives under a series of aliases - just now: Lucky the Fox - and takes his orders from "The Right Man." Into O'Dare's nightmarish world of lone and lethal missions comes a mysterious stranger, a seraph, who offers him a chance to save rather than destroy lives.

    K. Pounds says: "Good, but the resolution felt a bit anticlimactic"
    "It's a thinker..."
    Overall

    ...and not a book I would have chosen to read had I known/understood the topic from the write up. But I took away a message that has stayed with me after I've finished the book. If you're looking for classic Ann Rice - this isn't it. And yet I do recommend it. For me, it confirmed a basic foundation of my life: live in the middle.
