    Min Green and Ed Slaterton are breaking up, so Min is writing Ed a letter and giving him a box. Inside the box is why they broke up. Two bottle caps, a movie ticket, a folded note, a box of matches, a protractor, books, a toy truck, a pair of ugly earrings, a comb from a motel room, and every other item collected over the course of a giddy, intimate, heartbreaking relationship. Item after item is illustrated and accounted for, and then the box, like a girlfriend, will be dumped.

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

    Yes. The addition of the sound effects was fantastic.


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

    She read the part of a teenaged girl who's recounting a bad break up very well. I also like the voice she used for Ed.

    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    Story
    What was most disappointing about Margaret Atwood’s story?

    I have heard great things about this book. I bet it is probably better in print. It was difficult to follow the transitions within the story.
