  • The 85% Man and Lessons from Lucille

    The 85% Man and Lessons from Lucille is Bob Mack Peak's well-crafted, uplifting, heart-felt, and romantic self-help epic. It's a lighthearted look at the differences between men and women. Peak strives to prove the well-known, open proposition that "Everything my mother told me about women is true... and I can prove it." The book's flowing narrative offers the reader a delightful journey toward discovering life's truest reward-unconditional love.

    What made the experience of listening to The 85% Man and Lessons from Lucille the most enjoyable?

    I've read numerous books about relationships and at some point I stopped relating to the couples or author's advice. This book is less advice and more of a true story that really resonated with me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lucille... she sounds like she was happy, loving, smart, sensible and really loved her family. Her advice is very wise and I would have loved to have been at their dinner table.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Loved the scene when he went fishing with his grandpa and dad. I can totally see it take place by the way it's told and just really laughed while hearing about the snake in the boat.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As a divorcee that has kissed my share of frogs, it's refreshing to read something I completely identified with. While wanting to be a part of Lucille's family, I was fully engaged in the self-discovery journey of the author through his several marriages, endless online dating and some pretty funny predicaments.

    Told with the same old-fashioned narrative power as the novels of Herman Wouk, The Seamstress is the true story of Seren (Sara) Tuvel Bernstein and her survival during wartime. This powerful eyewitness account of survival, told with power and grace, will stay with listeners for years to come.

    Where does The Seamstress rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In my top 5


    What other book might you compare The Seamstress to and why?

    The Unbroken... this too is a true story and is told in a manner that I felt I was right there!


    What about Wanda McCaddon’s performance did you like?

    Extremely excellent! Love listening to her!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There are many moments that are moving in the book. This was a time of devastation and the Jews were treated so terribly. It was a cruel and grueling time and this story captivates all that a family went through.

    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    Amanda says: "Perfection."

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

    The story is about a woman who chaperones a 15-year old for one summer in New York in the early 20's. It's a very entertaining story with twists and a storyline that is wonderful. The story flows very easily going from the present to the past. The story is very insightful into different emotions that most everyone will be able to relate.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cora, the chaperone. She was a tough, yet very vulnerable character presented with many difficult situations but always carried through with grace and dignity.


    What about Elizabeth McGovern’s performance did you like?

    Very pleasant voice and the animation of each character was great!


    Any additional comments?

    Great story! Good read (or listen!)

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    Would you listen to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry again? Why?

    Loved listening to Jim Broadbent! My favorite narrator so far!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry?

    Even though it was slightly predictable, it was just a lovely story about how we take each other for granted, treat our significant other with carelessness, and forget to forgive and love each other to the best of our abilities under each circumstance.


    What about Jim Broadbent’s performance did you like?

    His ability to change characters and such animation!!


    Who was the most memorable character of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and why?

    Harold Fry. Because he was so vulnerable and because of the happenings of his past, he was able to become determined and move on.
