    In 1982, Sue Grafton introduced us to Kinsey Millhone. Thirty years later, Kinsey is an established international icon and Sue, a number-one best-selling author. To mark this anniversary year, Sue has given us stories that reveal Kinsey’s origins and Sue’s past. Kinsey and Me has two parts: The nine Kinsey stories (1986-93), each a gem of detection; and the And Me stories, written in the decade after Grafton's mother died. Together, they show just how much of Kinsey is a distillation of her creator’s past.

    What did you love best about Kinsey and Me?

    Sue Grafton is very talented and I love that she shared a little about herself in this book. As usual i thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories. I also loved the narration by Judy Kaye


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Kinsey and Me?

    I enjoyed hearing about the "birth" of Kinsey. It was appropriate that Sue Grafton found Kinsey's name in a birth announcement .


    What about Judy Kaye’s performance did you like?

    She captures the essence of Kinsey's character. She is also excellent doing voices of the other characters.


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

    Yes

    From the author who's inspired millions worldwide with books like Tuesdays with Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven comes his most imaginative novel yet, The Time Keeper--a compelling fable about the first man on earth to count the hours.

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

    Yes. Just as wonderful as the other audio recording he does. He is very talented.


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

    In a sense i had an extreme reaction as it made me think about how to better use the time I have. It made a few tears come to eyes


    Any additional comments?

    Best book i've ever listened too.

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she summons a biographer to tell the truth about her extraordinary life: Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth remains an ever-present pain.

    PA Law says: "Haunting and beautiful tale"
    "The best audiobook I've ever listened to."
    Overall

    It's so refreshing to listen to something that wasn't predictable!! I will certainly read more from this author in the future. The ending was complete and left me satisfied. This book kept my interest from beginning to end. This is a must read :)
