    Forrmer academic Arthur Opp weighs 550 pounds and hasn’t left his rambling Brooklyn home in a decade. Twenty miles away in Yonkers, seventeen-year-old Kel Keller navigates life as the poor kid in a rich school and pins his hopes on what seems like a promising baseball career - if he can untangle himself from his family drama.

    Story

    A wonderfully told story I didn't want to end. Perfect charcter development, and story telling ability from this author. I will definitely be watching for any future books from Liz Moore. A book I will be talking and thinking about for some time.

    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.

  • Solomon's Song: The Australian Trilogy, Book 3

    Here is the story of two families, branches of the Solomons, transported to an alien land. Both branches eventually grow rich and powerful. But through three generations, the families never, for one moment, relinquish their hatred for each other. This novel is also the story of Australia, from its beginnings to its coming of age as a nation.

    Story

    45 hours of listening to the trilogy with all of the ups and downs along the way to end so abruptly. It felt like the author ran out of ideas for these people and just ended the book. I don't get it. After 45 hours of following the lives in these books, it seems like a really mean joke to end the way it did. I don't think i'll be listening to anymore Bryce Courtenay books for a while. Mr Courtenay, I'm mad at you!

    Story

    I was so excited about listening to this book. Wow! What a disappointment! The story was great, but the narrator made it difficult to keep my attention. All I could think of was how silly he made everything and everyone sound. Very distracting! I've been listening to audio books for several years, but this one was the first that made me feel compelled to write a review. As soon as I finished The Ice Limit, I went to my wish list and removed every book narrated by Scott Brick. Very sad that such a great story was ruined by the horrible narration. Scott Brick I'm sorry to say this to you....but you need a new line of work!!!
