    Would you consider the audio edition of Did You Miss Me? to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, but this was outstanding.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns were wonderful. The plot was excellent. Karen Rose is a mastermind.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voicing of , "I'm back...Did you Miss me?" I can see Beckett's twisted face as he leans down and whispers this to his victims.


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

    I'm Back.... Did you Miss me?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Meeting Matthews Dad, and realizing he will die....

    I did not like her portrayal of Diana... She made her sound weak. Like a little girl.


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

    I love the knowledge, so half the time I was like, "WOW, really, I wish I could see that...Does that really happen?"

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Kayla Maxwell is eager to shed her slasher-flick bimbo image - and she plans to do just that in her new role on daytime's most popular soap. With a chance to showcase her dramatic range, Kayla will be able to wash away the lingering betrayal and public humiliation left by her controlling, philandering ex-boyfriend. Sean Barrett, the son of an influential, award-winning actor, is the hottest soap star in the country. Paired on-screen with the talented and beautiful Kayla Maxwell, Sean is determined to keep her at arm's length, burned before by fame-seeking actresses who had no qualms about using him to get to his famous father.

    What made the experience of listening to Love in the Afternoon the most enjoyable?

    I could run and not have to pay too much attention.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Alison Packard? Why or why not?

    Sure, for the distraction factor.


    What about Gia St. Claire’s performance did you like?

    She put the emotion and inflections in properly, not her fault the book was lacking in depth.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no.

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close to be better than the print version?

    not applicable as I have not yet read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close?

    When Oscar's Gramma is telling her tale of how she could see, and was hitting the space bar over and over and over. Sad, and telling.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no.


    If you could rename Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't. I love the title.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book for everyone. My Sixteen year old listened with me and enjoyed it very much.
