    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "Moving, thought provoking and VERY well read."
    Overall

    The author makes you think--what would you do if you were caught in a world where your mother was losing her mind and only you were there to pick up the pieces? You will root for CeeCee and the narrator is phenominal!

    From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees, a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world - and it is now the newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection. Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women.

    Jan says: "Historical Fiction - beautifully quilted!"
    "Amazingly poignant and soul stirring."

    Story
    Where does The Invention of Wings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story flows through history with a humanity that lives in your soul long after the story ends. I did not take my ear buds out for two days. One of my favorites to date!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrator hit every voice and personality with a precision that is not of this world--


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

    YES

    Praising Tim Dorsey’s tongue-in-cheek humor, the Miami Herald wrote, “Nobody, but nobody, writes like this guy.” Here Florida politics take the main stage in a rollicking satire that proves Dorsey’s at the top of his game. When a traumatic experience forever changes Florida gubernatorial race candidate Marlon Conrad’s life, he hits the road in a Winnebago to find the “real” Florida. But his odyssey is plagued with would-be assassins and cutthroat journalists.

    Would you listen to Orange Crush again? Why?

    There are some amazing twists that come together all through out the novel that makes me think I may have missed a few really funny ones. Very entertaining!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Orange Crush?

    When Marlin's fiance decides to tell him the engagement is off because she has found someone see who appreciates her puppets. Since its his press secretary, they will be forever entwined anyway!


    What about George Wilson???s performance did you like?

    His voice and timing are extraordinary!

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Best of the three!"
    Overall

    Amazing, intirguing and as before, incredibly well read! My favorite of them all! Don"t miss this one--read but read the previous ones first.

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Suzn F says: "I confess, I loved it!"
    "He's Back!"
    Overall

    This was a great story wih many twists and turns. Some that you don't like but make the story intrigiung and artistically unexpected. Great listen and very captivating.

    Mercedes Hildebrand Ware is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would prefer to keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge - Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood.

    bebe says: "Loved it"
    "Laugh out loud funny! Beyond a pleasant surpise."
    Overall

    I was not so sure at the beginning but the wit and elegant descriptive writing as well as the brilliant narration drew me in. I laughed out loud many, many times and was sad when it ended.

    When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place where she finds herself. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief. This story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching narrative about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

    Kim says: "Disappointing"
    "Great! But authors should NOT narrate their books."
    Overall

    Fabulous descriptive writing but the monotone of the author took so much away from the usual amazing audible experience.

    This is the book that I have been waiting for since Cain and Able by Jeffery Archer. He has spun an intricate and amazing tail that will engross you the whole way through.

    This was rolling along as though you were riding on a self exploration journey then all of a sudden it gets "Stephen King" interesting. I found excuses to go to the grocery store so that I could finish this book!

    Fresh from her bruising battle with a psychopath in Florida, Scarpetta decides it's time for a change of pace. Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    Bernie says: "Time to end the series"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This book was slow to start with meandering through so many different topics and characters that none of it made any sense. I could only listen to the first part and was so lost at that point that I did not waste my time finishing the second.
