    Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for 15 years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful house in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected...and hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues. They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that's what Denise would like to believe....

    Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    If you could sum up Swan Song in three words, what would they be?

    Real or Not!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator of this book was absolutely fabulous!! I think it is what kept me listening.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first. He is the best out of all the ones I have listened to thus far. He was sooo funny. His expressions had me laughing so loud I had to go back several times in the story because I was laughing and missed some things.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Can you ever imagine this happening!


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator should get an Academy Award for narrating if there were such a category. He was the BEST EVER!

    Carl Weber is a recipient of the Blackboard Bookseller of the Year Award. Married Men is a fresh and funny take on modern love that has been described as Waiting to Exhale on testosterone. Lifelong friends Kyle, Allen, Wil, and Jay all make mistakes in their marriages-and all get kicked to the curb by their wives. What follows is a wild ride with stops in sleazy hotels, divorce court, and even jail. In their adventure, fueled by Viagra® and lovely young ladies, the four men always have each other to lean on.

    Where does Married Men rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Number one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jay was my favorite character. It is hard picking one person because they all were pretty funny and interesting in their own way.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first one.


    If you could take any character from Married Men out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Al because he was so sweet.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are going to listen to this book and you are in public, be ready to laugh out loud and have people think you are a little crazy. They will certainly ask what you are listening to.

    Story
    (51)

    New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe’s God Don’t Like Ugly hit audiences like a thunderbolt, appealing to multiple generations of readers. God Don’t Make No Mistakes concludes the saga begun in that groundbreaking novel. Here, Annette Goode Davis is attempting to reconcile with her estranged husband. However, her appetite for food - and other men - has her world spiraling dangerously out of control.

    Where does God Don’t Make No Mistakes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my first listen since I am a new member. I didn't think I would like listening to books rather than reading myself, When you get older, your eyes get tired quicker so having someone else read for me is wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of God Don’t Make No Mistakes?

    The most memorable moment for me was when Jade got what she deserved for treating her mother so badly.


    Which character – as performed by Patricia R. Floyd – was your favorite?

    Scary Mary is absolutely fab.


    If you could take any character from God Don’t Make No Mistakes out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I again say Scary Mary. I could learn a lot from her about life.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was great as well. She really used some interesting voices to get the story to feel as though I was in the story myself.
