    When she asks her dependable husband, Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni, to fix her tiny white van, Precious Ramotswe fears he might just sell the vehicle and buy her something more modern. And so he does. But this will not do. So Precious tries to track her beloved van down - and learns it has already been stolen from its new owner.

    I simply can not get enough of the characters in this series. I wish it were a soap opera that I could watch everyday! Mma Makutsi gets funnier with each book. Mma Ramotswe is my age but she seems so much wiser! These books are so enjoyable. I was listening today at Walmart and laughing out loud. Again, the mysteries keep you guessing. Ms. Lecat is amazing. Thank you, thank you Mma for your wonderful narration. I especially love the way you do Puso. If you have listened to all of the books up to this point, you will not be disappointed.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Story

    I just finished listening to this wonderful, wonderful audio book. I listened to it practically nonstop. In this original and intricate story, the narrator brilliantly changes from character to character. I fell in love with most of them. It had me giving serious thought to what I would do in some of the situations, situations you won't see coming in the book. It's nice not being able to guess what's going to happen. The characters are rich and I could relate from the oldest to the youngest, male and female. I love when I choose a book and it blows away my expectations. I was laughing out loud, wiping tears, my heart full at one minute, and breaking the next and this was all throughout the book! This was the first book I listened to by Liane Moriarty and I have a new favorite author (and narrator). I'm using my next credit on her!

    In the life of Precious Ramotswe, a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build, there is rarely a dull moment, and in the latest installment in the universally beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, there is much happening on Zebra Drive and Tlokweng Road. Mma Ramotswe is experiencing staffing difficulties. Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni asks to be put in charge of a case involving an errant husband. But can a man investigate such matters as successfully as the number-one lady detective can?

    Story

    This is my favorite book of the series so far. Mr. Smith really let his humor shine throughout the book especially with Mma Makutsi. The mysteries in the book were enthralling as always. There always seems to be a twist I never see coming. I fell in love with the series from the first book. Lisette Lecat (narrator) is amazing. Between her and Mr. Smith, I feel as if I'm there in Gabarone with the characters. They are such wonderful people. I've even fallen in love with their names, repeating them over and over sometimes. I would love to know all of them even the two apprentices! I'm purchasing the next book today. I have already listened to one of them twice :). Keep up the good work Mr. Smith and Ms. Lecat. You have a fan for life.

    Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the 20th century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Now available for the first time in unabridged audio, the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime is brought to life by acclaimed narrator Scott Brick.

    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Of course I had heard of Charles Manson, but I didn't know all the details. The narrator brought the characters alive. It was hard to stop listening to this one.


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

    Definitely! It is such a captivating story and Scott Brick does great voices even for the women. There was not one dull moment in this book. Great work Mr. Bugliosi and thank you for writing it. I'm a strong believer in knowing our history because it can and will repeat itself.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    If you could sum up The Hunger Games in three words, what would they be?

    This is a very interesting book with a unique story. My sister recommended it, said she couldn't put it down. Unfortunately, the narrator ruined it for me. I just did not like her voice. I'm reading the second book now, not listening. I'm enjoying it much more.


    Any additional comments?

    It's unfortunate when a narrator isn't to your liking. It's best to listen to the sample before you purchase even thought sometimes they are too short to really know.
