    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    What did you love best about The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society?

    What didn't I like about this story. It's uplifting, it's sad but most of all it speaks to the human spirit during a horrible time in history.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Juliet proposes to Dawsey at the end.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definately, I did not want the story to end. It took me several days to break the hold this story had on me.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Unbroken to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's impossible to pick one scene, but if I had to pick just one it would be the section where they were in the inflatable boat and the sharks began to attack them.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I think the title of the book perfectly sums up this story because he remains "Unbroken" through everything he endured.
