    When Susan Tate's 17-year-old daughter, Lily, announces she is pregnant, Susan is stunned. A single mother, she has struggled to do everything right. She sees the pregnancy as an unimaginable tragedy for both Lily and herself.

    Susan says: "One credit down the drain"
    "interesting distraction"
    Overall

    I like Delinsky's style and, for the most part, the character's she creates. she approaches this unusual topic from many angles and offers an unbalanced understanding of several POVs. the story seems to make light of an actual end result of the girls' decision, I think. The conclusion doesn't offer a fair 'end game' reality that these silly girls created for themselves - and their kids.

    Story

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "got confusing to me"
    Overall

    perhaps this story might have been more clear to me if I read the book instead of listening to it during while behind the wheel on a multi-state drive. With the main character hoping back and forth in time so much, and other characters changing their age and place accordingly, I got a bit confused about what the heck was going on. the concept was terrific and the characters likable.

  • New York: The Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (36 hrs and 5 mins)

    New York is the book that millions of Rutherfurd's American fans have been waiting for. A brilliant mix of romance, war, family drama, and personal triumphs, it gloriously captures the search for freedom and prosperity at the heart of our nation's history.

    Chuck says: "Stunning"
    "long drive reading material"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the book for the most part, but might have been better suited to the abridged version. The unabridged goes into details of the wars and wall street dealings that might be a bit much for the everyday reader. as a captive on a long car ride, it proved an interesting distraction.
