    Story

    Actors were amazing. "The Help" must be read on audible to have the best read possible. I started to read the book and then quickly switched to audible to get the voices right. This book was unusual in that each major character had their own voice in the story, and those "voices" were brought to the reader by three separate actors.

  • The Family Business

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The book starts on one course and then twists abruptly to another one. I liked that...I didn't see it coming. The characters are well-developed within the context of an unusual family...whose family members are matter-of-fact pure sociopaths. This ordinary presentation of extraordinary choices, people, and incidents left me thoroughly entertained. I was intrigued at the knowledge that this is a composite picture of people and families who really do exist and think in this extraordinary way.

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    Story

    Loved the story, the protagonist, the reader... Had I read the book myself, I could never have gotten the protagonist's voice right in my head, the way the reader did. A wonderful audible read. Only possible flaw was one or two fantastical vignettes within an otherwise hard knock detective story. Yet, if seen as pure entertainment, then there really aren't any problems.

  • Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea

    (1005)

    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

    I felt like I was brought into the darkest hole and the darkest secret on planet earth with credibility. Both journalistic AND very moving. It was a page-turner. I couldn't put it down.
