    In 1949, four Chinese women drawn together by the shadow of their past begin meeting in San Francisco to play Mah Jong, invest in stocks, eat dim sum, and "say" stories. Nearly 40 years later, one of the members has died, and her daughter has come to take her place, only to learn of her mother's lifelong wish and the tragic way in which it has come true. The revelation of this secret unleashes an urgent need among the women to reach back and remember.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the book, not the audiobook.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gwendoline Yeo’s performances?

    NO!!!! Her normal voice is great, her Chinese accented english is great. However, the men either sound like Johnny American (over exagerated hill billy) or a guy pincing his nose closed. Also, in one story a Chinese-American is telling her story of when she was back in China, she has an accent but the people in the story speaking Chinese have no accent. The narration, not only took me out of the story many times, but actually made me roll me eyes in disgust.


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

    This is an amazing, well written book that makes me laugh and cry every time.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    There are a few words/phrases that are used to death in this book. "Oh my!" and "Holy Crap" are used every few minutes.


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Thank GOD you can adjust the narrator speeds. She is so slow that I need you keep the speed at 2X.


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    More than I'd keep.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a love story, go get a love story. If you want porn, go get porn. This book is lacking in both.

    I bought this thinking it was a long shot but that I would take any help I could get. It has really helped me. I have been smoke free for 8 days now and while I do still have cravings, I have the control and will power to dismiss them. I've tried to quit before and this time was totally different. It's definitely worth the $6.
