    Story
    (206)

    Ted Kerasote met and adopted Merle, a Labrador mix, while he was on a camping trip. Merle had been living in the wild, and after taking the dog home with him to Wyoming, Kerasote soon realized that Merle could not adjust to inhabiting exclusively the human world. So he put a door in his house to let Merle live both outside and in. A deeply touching portrait of a remarkable animal, Merle's Door explores the issues that all animals and their human companions face.

    John says: "The Best Audio Book I've ever listened to"
    "The Best Audio Book I've ever listened to"
    Overall

    I’ve listened to over 70 audio books and this was unequivocally the best one yet. Entertaining, educational, exquisitely written and truly heart-warming, Kerasote gives the reader a new insight on the human-dog relationship. No longer will you believe that humans should be the “master” or “alpha dog” over our canine companions. Everything I’ve ever learned about dogs and had accepted as “common knowledge” had to be revisited after listening to this book. As a result, I now have an entirely new outlook on raising and living with dogs.

    The story of Ted and Merle was so emotionally addicting, I consumed it from start to finish in less than a weekend. It is a wonderfully written book from a truly remarkable author that found a friend and companion that taught not only him, but all who have read his book. Thank you Mr. Kerasote for sharing your story of one of the most remarkable dogs ever. Coupled with the marvelous narration of Patrick Lawlor, Merle’s Door is definitely a winner and unquestionably worthy of five stars in every aspect.

    Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. He expands his business into foreclosure defense, only to see one of his clients accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. Mickey puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, even though the evidence and his own suspicions tell him his client is guilty. Soon after he learns that the victim had black market dealings of his own, Haller is assaulted, too - and he's certain he's on the right trail. Despite the danger and uncertainty, Haller mounts the best defense of his career in a trial where the last surprise comes after the verdict is in.

    Bob says: "Compelling and difficult to put down"
    "A "Driveway" novel"
    Overall

    Few of the 300 books I've listened to on Audible make it to my "driveway" list but this is certainly one of them. My "driveway" list consists of books that 5 stars will not accurately describe how addictive the book really is. "Driveway" books leave me sitting in my car LONG after arriving home from my commute. "One more chapter" usually turns into two, three, and sometimes four additional chapters before I walk into my house. Certainly, in my opinion, this is the best of Connelly's "Haller" novels. The Lincoln
    Lawyer was great but this one had a certain courtroom strategy aspect that just kept you wanting more. The ending was one of his best yet and although I can't say much about it without giving too much away, I can say you will
    need 30 minutes to just sit and contemplate the entire book after realizing
    what just occurred. If you are a Connelly fan, a courtroom drama fan, or just a fan of really good, addictive novels, you will love this read. Highly recommended.

    It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who's just walked in to his band's show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City - and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

    Michael J. Dean says: "Great story"
    "Great Listen!"
    Overall

    Definity NOT a kids book. A real cool, well wriiten love story. Based out of New York City's Punk scene, it's not your typical boy meets girl book. Definitly worth a listen and I hope the authors write a sequel.
