    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Defending Jacob to be better than the print version?

    Audio is different than print and folks have reasons for each. In the case of Defending Jacob, I found hearing it to be captivating, well read and thoroughly enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The character development was phenomenal due to the obvious expertise the author brings to the novel. Most folks distrust the legal system; Defending Jacob gives you many reasons why.


    Which character – as performed by Grover Gardner – was your favorite?

    I suppose Jacobs Mother was particularly well developed. The range of emotions a Mom goes through when their child is under suspicion is heart wrenching. Grover Gardner not only captured the legal procedures, he captured the emotions the participants experience.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This is one of the best thrillers I have read and I was up into the wee hours of the morning unable to put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend!

    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    "Great Read"
    Overall

    Ha! Reading another in The Women's Murder Club is like revisiting old friends that always find themselves in trouble and suffering the drama of relationships. 10th Anniversary does not disappoint and Carolyn McCormick does an awesome job of narration. Lots of intrigue, romance and suspense make this addition a must read that will keep you up til the wee hours to finish! Highly recommend!

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"

    Overall

    Fall of Giants by Ken Follett is an amazing audio-book. As a teacher of U.S. History and International Affairs, I would recommend this audio-book as a must for students of World Politics. Fall of Giants provides richly developed characters living through the challenging times up to and through World War I from the various perspectives of Russians, Germans, French, English, Americans and Welsh. Never have I read a more appealing, well researched observation of the period. The stories are engrossing, down to earth, and let the reader see events from various national and cultural points of view. Different from any history audio-book, Fall of Giants brings the loves, conflicts, fears, class beliefs all into understanding of the time. This book is a treasure!
