    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Very well written and read. Does not pull at heart strings but I teared up twice. Before i was 1/4 done i started recommending this book to others because I thought it was so enjoyable. I've listened to almost 200 audiobooks and this is the first that I thought of as being liked by anyone, pet owner or not.

    Sidney Archer has the world. A husband she loves. A job at which she excels, and a cherished young daughter. Then, as a plane plummets into the Virginia countryside, everything changes. And suddenly there is no one whom Sidney Archer can trust.

    Like many of the reviewers, I thought this was new release, meaning a new book. I had to look up the publish date about an hour into the book because I thought I missed something in the narration. “you have mail”, AOL, Modems, car phones (not cell phones) etc. Really!! Would have been a decent book when it was first published but it is way out of place if you want a relevant book to today’s technology. It made me squirm to listen to storing data on a floppy disc. Baldacci is a great story teller but you might want to skip this one.

    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us."

    Erin says: ""Promises" Delivers!"
    "narrator full of herself"
    Overall

    I am sure this book is a good "read" because it's on the NY Times best seller list- but it's a terrible listen! The narrator insists on proving her talent by using accents that make me ill- and they are pointless - there aren't any accents in the book whay add them in voice. It's one thing to modulate a voice to differentiate male from female - but you should really skip this book- no wonder Audible offered a special under $10 deal - I feel suckered!
