  • The Book Thief

    Story

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    I cannot say enough about this book - it is an incredible story with an amazing narrator! If I could only recommend one audio book to someone, this would be it!

    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a very cute, light-hearted story with some laugh out loud dialog. If you are looking for something fun in the chick lit department, this book is perfect. The narrator didn't drive me nuts like she did others, but she did pause a lot. Don't let that sway your decision - it is still a great listen.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It is worth the time, but the issue is not only is the audio talent less than spectacular, the audio quality is really bad at times. The narrator sounded like she was under water at times.

    The story was fun and entertaining. I will buy the next book, simply because I like the character.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator spoke much too quickly a lot of the time. Her voice was a bit annoying, but I didn't mind it as much as some of the reviewers. My main complaint is the quality of the audio - I have listened to hundreds of books and never heard this type of problem. I am starting book two and found that it has the same issue.


    Was Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye worth the listening time?

    Yes.

    Truly Plaice, an overly large and ungainly girl, is the polar opposite of her sister, Serena Jane, the epitome of feminine perfection. With their parents dead, Truly and Serena Jane are separated: Serena Jane to live a life of privilege as the future May Queen and Truly to live on the outskirts of town, the subject of constant abuse and humiliation.

    Tracie says: "Pretty good - but could have been Truly good!"
    "Completely different and very entertaining"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book, because it was so well written and the characters were so well developed. This is a story of someone who has a very hard life, but keeps moving forward and surviving, in spite of continual challenges.

    Story

    I liked this book so much I walked around with my iPod on until I finished it. It is a feel-good story about a clever girl who doesn't bend to conform with the expectations of her family and some how stubles on a huge opportunity to be the matchmaker for a big sports agent. There is nothing intellectual about this book, but if you are looking for some light-hearted, fun chick lit - this is a good book for you!

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    Denise says: "UGH!!!"
    "Great story!"
    Overall

    I really liked this book. It was interesting, because it was largely set in Africa, so it made you think about what it would like to try to do business in different parts of that country. I love stories about incredibly smart, strong, capable women, which is one reason I really liked this story. It also had an interesting element of espionage and secret underground dealings.

    Jane Darlington is a genius at physics, but there's one problem she can't solve. She yearns for a child, but wants to spare it the pain of growing up as...well, a nerd. And surely any child of Jane's would be a little too brainy for the playground set. So she sets out to find a special man to father her child, someone without too much gray-matter between his ears: in short, a big, strong dope. Cal Bonner, legendary pro quarterback, seems to fit the bill. But there's something Dr. Jane hasn't counted on.

    Ella says: "Lots of Fun"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I read and really liked three other books by this author, but this one was not good. This book was pretty much the same story line as This Heart of Mine, except with a poor story line and very unlikely conflict elements. If you want to read good books by this author, I would recommend sticking to Natural Born Charmer or Match Me if You Can - much better stories and characters. I do like the way that the same characters keep showing up in other stories though, so if you want to know the whole sequence of events, this will give you a little back story on Kevin Tucker.
