    Rod Stewart was born the working class son of a Scottish plumber in north London. Despite some early close shaves with a number of diverse career paths ranging from gravedigging to professional soccer, it was music that truly captured his heart - and he never looked back. Rod’s is an incredible life, and here - thrillingly and for the first time - he tells the entire thing, leaving no knickers under the bed. A rollicking rock ’n’ roll adventure that is at times deeply moving, this is the remarkable journey of a guy with one hell of a voice - and one hell of a head of hair.

    Interesting but slow going, almost all you ever wanted to know about Rod and his career as a singer and his affairs and how easily he fell in and out of love. is it 7 or 8 kids he has? No real surprises here.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    Where does Creole Belle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    alsways very high on my list.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Creole Belle?

    the part when the thug was trying to harm Cleet's Secretary. very funny laugh out loud funny.


    Which character – as performed by Will Patton – was your favorite?

    I just love to listen to Will's reading. he does all the parts so well and distinctivly you always know which person is talking.


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

    I listened to is daily until finished. I could not wait to get back to hear more of Dave's and Cleets adventures, or is it misadventures?


    Any additional comments?

    again Burke has written a book so compelling, you must read on. his descriptions are so vivid you can feel the humidity, smell the food and expect to be harmed by the characters

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    intriguing story line, living in the past you remember only from history books and news accounts. For those of us who lived in that era, a fine walk down memory lane. and food for thought, about how fragile our interactions with each other are. one encounter can change the course of history.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    the love story and the interruption of a life altered by a horrendous act by a family member.

    the lovely ending


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice changes for different people, hearing the differences instead of your own voice.husky whispering, soft inflections of Sadie, and so many others.


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

    Really change History??

    “Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued 13-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    thought it would be a good read for a teenager, but may be too risque for under 16.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the descriptions of anything gross that would be a teen's idea of hell was delightful. laughed out loud at some descriptions.


    Which character – as performed by Tai Sammons – was your favorite?

    the doleful sardonic voice of Madison.


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

    Madison for a veggie dinner.

  • The Dovekeepers: A Novel

    Over five years in the writing, Alice Hoffman’s most ambitious and mesmerizing work ever, a triumph of imagination and research set in ancient Israel. The author of such iconic bestsellers as Illumination Night, Practical Magic, Fortune’s Daughter, and Oprah’s Book Club selection Here on Earth, Alice Hoffman is one of the most popular and memorable writers of her generation. Now, in The Dovekeepers, Hoffman delivers her most masterful work yet - one that draws on her passion for mythology, magic, and archaeology and her inimitable understanding of women.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Dovekeepers the most enjoyable?

    as a prelude to traveling to Israel, I started this book, knowing I would be visiting many places described in the book. I read about the hiding of children behind the waterfalls, and visited Ein Gedi. But most exhilerating was visiting Masada and seeing the ancient dovecotes, and the cistern. It was a bone chilling and exciting experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Yael, the main protaganist. her story of enduring forbidden stolen love and her desire to survive drove her to escape the supression of her life.


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

    yes some of them all were very good.


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

    Yael and order her anything but poultry.


    Any additional comments?

    best read in a while ! but most of my reads from Audible are excellent.

    "In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    Daniel says: "Terrific"
    "determined to survive, girl to woman"
    Overall

    Jaycee deserves a fulfilled life for surviving this harrowing life in captivity.
    She is a natural writer and story teller. I especially liked that she described the sexual part just once and then just referenced it later. The sexual perversity of PG if well documented and well told. Hurrah for her!! I hope she is able to continue writing. She should try her hand at fiction, she has a wealth of background to use. Enjoy your new life Jaycee!

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"
    "best celebrity bio ever"
    Overall

    good natured and full of voice imitations of well known people you know, surprising story of growing up in show business with a bunch of today's well known actors. I did not want to stop listening, but had to just to get some sleep or at the end of my daily walk. I especially enjoyed that he never spoke ill of people in his life. You can not let the harm others do to you define you, be true to self, well said by Rob Lowe, I loved hearing his story told by him. Jeanie2000
