  • Then We Came to the End

    No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts. Every office is a family of sorts, and the Chicago ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best. The characters in Then We Came to an End cope with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, secret romance, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.

    Steve says: "Abridged Reading"
    "Unsatisfying"
    Overall

    After hearing good things about this book I was VERY disappointed. It was filled with the natterings of clueless office people and a long and uninteresting first person commentary by a work-obsessed lonely woman facing a mastectomy.

    Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect - she’s lovely, charming, and a successful real estate agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up in her present condition....

    "Delightful characters Wonderful narrator"
    Overall

    Fannie Flagg brings such a wonderful story to the listener both through her writing and her reading. To have the main plot point be the first person narrator planning to "jump in the river" and yet be delightful, not depressing is a feat in itself. Fannie brings a wonderful, warm, evocative picture of Birmingham, Alabama that keeps the listener entranced to the very end.

    Mary DiNunzio gets a terrifying telephone call while she's working late, then goes home to find a shadow lurking at her front door. When a lawyer close to her turns up dead, Mary begins to suspect that the case she's been working on, involving the suicide of an Italian-American in an internment camp during World War II, may not be ancient history after all.

    "What's with the mouth noise?"
    Overall

    Plot was interesting but wow, the narrator has a lot of mouth noise...very distracting in head phones.

  • Water for Elephants

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    Both the young and the old main character are wonderfully portrayed in this book with excellent readers. I was left at the end wishing for more.
