    Story

    LT has a theory about pets, particularly his Siamese cat. It had been their cat, not just his cat, but that was until he came home one day to find a note on the fridge from his wife saying she had left him. Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in London, this story demonstrates yet again that no one can tell a tale like Stephen King. Available only in audio!

    Overall

    This book wasn't quite what I thought it would be, but it was a fun and funny book that takes a look at how things seem to be true (at least was with my pets even!) It's a short and sweet story that had me laughing out loud (quite a funny thing seeing as how I only listened to it on my mp3 player -- so spontaneous bursts of laughter were amusing and confusing to everyone else) and was definitely a good buy. I've listened to it a few times all the way through and recommend this book, read by Stephen King himself (who does a wonderful job narrating with his Maine accent)

  • Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm

    Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audiobook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

    What made the experience of listening to Roseannearchy the most enjoyable?

    I grew up watching Roseanne, and I think she is a wonderful, strong woman who did the best she could with what she had. I love her, and I loved every minute of this book.

    Thank you, Roseanne, for being wonderful, funny, and an inspiration!


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

    To hear it all in her own voice was just perfect!


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

    Yes

    We meet Marlie Davidow, home alone with her new baby late one Friday night, when she wanders onto her ex's online wedding registry and wonders what if she had wound up with the guy not taken. We stumble upon Good in Bed's Bruce Guberman, liquored-up and ready for anything on the night of his best friend's bachelor party, until stealing his girlfriend's tiny rat terrier becomes more complicated than he'd planned.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I think I felt lost during most of this book. After listening to it all, I think that it is compiled of a lot of lost loves in books that I may not have read. I remember some of the stories that were related to some of the characters but others - I was totally lost on who they were, how they knew each other and their back story. If you are a Jennifer Weiner buff and have read/listened to all of her books, you may really enjoy this book!


    Did Mary Catherine Garrison, and Jordan Bridges do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think they characters were all well played and separate, however I just felt lost during some stories because I had no idea who they were or any back story.

    Story
    (2970)

    To be irrevocably in love with a vampire is both fantasy and nightmare, woven into a dangerously heightened reality for Bella Swan. Pulled in one direction by her intense passion for Edward Cullen, and in another by her profound connection to werewolf Jacob Black, she has endured a tumultuous year of temptation, loss, and strife to reach the ultimate turning point.

    Overall

    As soon as I heard about the Twilight Saga from a friend, and HAD to get the audio books. I got the first two from a friend (although I'm not sure where she acquired them) but I bought this book here, and it was the most wonderful book yet. Every book in this series has been extremely addictive, and I just about constantly listened to them (except they wouldn't let me listen to them while I was at work =( ) I am waiting excitedly for the MOVIE that comes out in theaters 11/21/2008 and there is a sequel currently in the works -- so I'll be watching for it!

    I recommend this book to EVERYONE as it is a great story for all ages, boys, girls, young and old. I also feel that everyone should start with the first book if possible, but each book does give enough background as it goes to be able to understand what is going on if read seperately.
