    The Pixar Touch is a lively chronicle of Pixar Animation Studios' history and evolution, and the "fraternity of geeks" who shaped it. With the help of visionary businessman Steve Jobs and animating genius John Lasseter, Pixar has become the gold standard of animated filmmaking, beginning with a short special effects shot made at Lucasfilm in 1982 all the way up through the landmark films Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, and others.

    What made the experience of listening to The Pixar Touch the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed this book because I love the Pixar movies. It was neat to hear about the history of the company and the process behind the movies made me want to watch them all again.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story

    I was very much looking forward to the last book in the trilogy. I did not like the split narration because it was a change in how the other two books were structured. A lot of the story line seemed rushed and not thought out. There were gaping holes in the logic of what happened. I finished it because I wanted to know how it ended, but was incredibly disappointed, especially considering how great the first two books were.

    Somewhere in South America at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening, until a band of terrorists breaks in, taking the entire party hostage.

    Bel Canto was wonderfully descriptive and captivating. Prachett takes a horrific and turns it into a romantic, unforgettable story.

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    I'm not a huge fan of the movie but wanted to experience the book. Anne Hathaway made it well worth the listen. She is pure joy.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: 50th Anniversary Edition

    Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.

    Scott says: "Fantastic"

    Where does One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the beautifully constructed sentences. You can't listen to this book and not appreciate the vivid imagery and the how well it is written.


    What about John C. Reilly’s performance did you like?

    I chose this book because I like John C. Reilly. I loved it from the beginning because he did a great job with the voices and was one of the best narrators I've heard. By the end I was so captivated in the story and the characters that I almost forgot who was narrating. Excellent job!


    Who was the most memorable character of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and why?

    The character narrating the book is Chief Brompton and thought he was most memorable because of how much he changes from beginning to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read!
