    Diana, a little black cat, is bored by the long, cold days. Cyrus, her older and wiser friend, tries to keep her out of trouble with regular lectures, but temptations are everywhere. From sliding on the kitchen towel to "capturing" the sewing room tape measure, Diana is on the prowl for fun, when what should she discover but the most amazing tree she has ever seen - with "pretty bobbles and balls just begging to be knocked off and batted around the room."

    Julie Elizabeth Powell says: "Delightful"

    Story
    Where does A Tale of Two Kitties rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    With younger and younger children using iPads and other devices, this short tale is a purr-fect listen. Kitten Diana is curious about everything while her more experienced friend Cyrus explains to her the proper way to behave. Once a tempting tree is placed in the house, loaded with shiny objects, caution is thrown to the wind.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In a subtle way, this kitten story can relate to the relationship between an enthusiastic toddler and an older sibling.


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

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile and wish for a fleeting time that I could have my own Diana and Cyrus.

    George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating.

    What made the experience of listening to Cell the most enjoyable?

    I think Robin Cook must have some insider information because this story is right out of the news.


    Any additional comments?

    The one thing I did not like was that I knew for most of the book what was going to happen. The main character was too slow to pick up on the clues.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my favorite. She was a combination of world weary and trusting. Even when the system failed her she never lost her courage and spunk.


    What about Hillary Hawkins’s performance did you like?

    The overall narration was good but there were a couple of rough spots. I loved the accent and expression the narrator read with.


    Any additional comments?

    The author threw in an intriguing twist towards the end of the book that ended a whole new level of evil and greed.

    Twenty-eight year old Jet, the former Mossad operative from the eponymous novel JET, must battle insurmountable odds to protect those she loves in a deadly race that stretches from the heartland of Nebraska to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., from the lurid streets of Bangkok to the deadly jungles of Laos and Myanmar. Fans of Kill Bill, the Bourne trilogy, and 24 will be delighted by this rollercoaster of action, intrigue and suspense.

    Would you listen to Jet, Book 1 again? Why?

    No, I don't repeat books but if I did, this would be one I repeat.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jet, Book 1?

    It was so action packed it would be impossible to choose one.


    Which character – as performed by Braden Wright – was your favorite?

    Jet! I loved the narration by Braden Wright.


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

    Absolutely! Fortunately for me, I am able to pick up quickly after an interruption.


    Any additional comments?

    My husband's favorite authors are Brad Thor, Vince Flynn (so sad he is gone) and Daniel Silva. He will be adding a new author to his list, Russell Blake.

    Would you listen to Edge of Apocalypse again? Why?

    Just listened to this book for the second time. In the tradition of Joel Rossenburg, some of the actions and political scenarios that seemed fiction in the first read are now becoming reality.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the edgey tension mixed with the story of redemption.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The lamb in the thicket moment.


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

    The Patriot because he is giving his all for our country.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read Thunder From Heaven but know I will need to read it again in a year to see how much of the fiction becomes reality.

    The brutal, inexplicable death of Inspector Thomas Lynley's wife has left Scotland Yard shocked and searching for answers. Even more horrifying is that the trigger was apparently pulled by a 12-year-old boy. Who is he? Where did he come from? And what were the circumstances that led to his final act of desperation?

    Rebecca says: "Bleak, pedantic but...love Elizabeth George"
    "What is the point"
    Overall

    I have always enjoyed Elizabeth George books so I kept listening, thinking it would get better. It did not. The whole story is about siblings who are deserted by their mother and left on their aunts doorstep. The aunt was not equipped to handle the problems of teenage sex, drugs and gangs. The book had no redeeming qualities. I can get this kind of drama on the nightly news.
