    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    Sparkly says: "Engaging, entertaining, and heartbreaking."
    "The Best Yet in the Gamache Series!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved the complexity and many-layered study of human behavior.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somehow, Louise Penny manages to keep the reader deeply engrossed in both wondering who was culpable for the murder and in hoping like crazy that the main characters would find their humanity. I worried for my favorite characters (Gamache and Beauvoir) and puzzled over the clues and innuendos provided in the beautiful mystery. Wonderful book! Outstanding performance.

    Drawn from the work of StoryCorps, the largest and most ambitious private oral history project in American history, comes this tapestry of the stories Americans have been sharing from their lives to leave behind to their loved ones.

  • Hallucinations

    Have you ever seen something that wasn't really there? Heard someone call your name in an empty house? Sensed someone following you and turned around to find nothing? Hallucinations don't belong wholly to the insane. Much more commonly, they are linked to sensory deprivation, intoxication, illness, or injury. People with migraines may see shimmering arcs of light or tiny, Lilliputian figures of animals and people.

    Alison says: "Sacks at his best, why couldn't he narrate?"
    "Much to learn about various forms of hallucination"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Unless you have a deep interest in the many types of hallucinations discussed in this book, the information may seem overwhelming.


    Was Hallucinations worth the listening time?

    Not for me, even though I am a fan on Dr. Sack's previous work.

    (1973)

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    Story
    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Broken Harbor is a complex human drama that focuses on a murdered family in a 'failed' development near Dublin.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    The main character, Mike Kennedy, was the head of the murder investigation. His character experienced many well-portrayed conflicts.
