    In this powerful and gripping novel, Sharon Dogar explores what this might have been like from Peters point of view. What was it like to be forced into hiding with Anne Frank, first to hate her and then to find yourself falling in love with her? Especially with your parents and her parents all watching almost everything you do together. To know youre being written about in Anne's diary, day after day? What's it like to start questioning your religion, wondering why simply being Jewish inspires such hatred?

    Story

    This story was remarkable! I loved that there was a full cast of narrators, so each character had his or her own unique voice. Anne Frank's story is well known, so it was interesting to hear the scenario from someone else's perspective. Of course, considering the setting, there are depressing moments in the story, but there are also lighthearted scenes to be enjoyed. I would recommend listening to this book. You won't regret it!

    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. In trying to avoid the deep suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes - who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac (which, of course, he is) - Dexter has had to slip further into his foolproof domestic disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his girlfriend, Rita, and her two children. But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher?

    Story

    I didn't realize that this was part of a series when I purchased it, and it wasn't until much later that I noticed this was book two. However, I don't feel like I missed too much by not reading the first book. There were some interesting characters in this book and an interesting plot, but there were just too many gory details for my liking. I would often come away from a listening feeling slightly queasy. It wasn't my favorite book, but I'm sure there are others who would really enjoy it. However, I was not inclined to go looking for the rest of the series.

    When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise: Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident - in a Mercedes no less - Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

    I did enjoy the story overall and the journey that Lexi takes is an interesting one. There was a lot more swearing than I would have preferred, so that was a little hard to listen to, but other than that it was an fun story to listen to.

    The renegade outlaw group known as the Outsiders may have been chased from Clonmel, but not before killing Halt's only brother. Now Rangers Halt and Will, along with the young warrior Horace, are in pursuit. The Outsiders have done an effective job of dividing the kingdom into factions and are looking to overtake Araluen. It will take every bit of skill and cunning for the Rangers to survive. Some may not be so lucky.

    What did you love best about Ranger's Apprentice, Book 9: Halt's Peril?

    I've always loved the Ranger's Apprentice series, and this book was no exception. I laughed out loud, and shed some tears. It was a very enjoyable experience.


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

    I did want to listen to it all at once, so it was hard for me to turn it off when I had to go to work.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The House at Riverton to be better than the print version?

    I think I may have enjoyed this more in print format, because the story switched from present day to past memories and then occasionally to newspaper articles. I felt like every time the scene changed, I spent a full minute trying to figure out what was going on. The transitions were easier to catch on to as the book progressed, but it was definitely distracting at the beginning.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were times that I wished the narrator would read faster so I could know what was going to happen sooner, but there were also times that I felt the story dragged on a little bit.


    What about Caroline Lee’s performance did you like?

    She has a very pleasant voice to listen to, and did a relatively good job at giving each character a unique voice.
