I am an audio book enthusiast because I like to do things while I listen. Mostly that's knitting, but also cleaning the house.

    Astrid is the only child of a single mother, Ingrid, a brilliant, obsessed poet who wields her luminous beauty to intimidate and manipulate men. Astrid worships her mother and cherishes their private world full of ritual and mystery-but their idyll is shattered when Astrid's mother falls apart over a lover. Deranged by rejection, Ingrid murders the man, and is sentenced to life in prison. White Oleander is the unforgettable story of Astrid's journey through a series of foster homes.

    Overall

    This was a great book and it was beautifully read by Oprah. I remember seeing her talk about the book when it was an Oprah's Book Club selection. She said she'd immediately contacted the author to ask if she could read it. She's great. The writing is great too, of course, but Ophrah does such a fabulous job reading that I've suggested to friends that they listen rather than read it. Lots of nice turns in the story.
