    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Overall

    Really enjoyed this reading of Tina Fey's book. I laughed so much, and really enjoyed all the anecdotes about her life. Also love the included PDF. Great listen and highly recommended.

  • For Better: The Science of a Good Marriage

    We've all heard the statistic: Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. But what if it isn't true? What if, in fact, its not only possible but often easier than you think to save a seemingly troubled relationship? Those are the questions Tara Parker-Pope asked herself after her own divorce. An investigative journalist on the health and wellness beat, she turned to some of the top biologists, neuroscientists, psychologists, and other scientists for answers.

    Melissa Holewinski says: "Good Food For Thought"
    "Fascinating Read / Good Narrator"
    Overall

    I bought this book because I liked the idea of getting advice based on facts / statistics. I was worried it might get boring, but I like to know authors are coming to conclusions based on scientific study or some kind of data. But I had no reason to worry because this book was fascinating! It offered good common sense advice about how to maintain a marriage or any committed relationship in a straight forward but not in a cheesy self-help way. Definitely recommended.

    Sister Evangeline was just a girl when her father entrusted her to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Now, at 23, her discovery of a 1943 letter from the famous philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent plunges Evangeline into a secret history that stretches back a thousand years: an ancient conflict between the Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful descendants of angels and humans.

    Angela says: "Very Pleasant Divine Suprise"
    "Great Idea but Unravels"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to others. It starts off very well - love that there is a perspective from a nun! That's something fresh and new. However, as the story goes on it begins to unravel a bit and becomes a little anti-climatic by the end. It loses a bit of steam. However, Susan Denaker does a great job bringing all the characters to life with her voice. I wonder if there will be a sequel.

    Connie's mother asks her to sell an abandoned house once owned by her grandmother in Salem, Mass. Relunctantly, Connie moves to the small town and inhabits the crumbling, ancient house, trying to restore it to a semblance of order. Curious things start to happen when Connie finds the name "Deliverance Dane" on a yellowed scrap of paper and begins to have visions of a long ago woman condemned for practicing "physick," or herbal healing, on her neighbors in 1690s Salem.

    Darinda says: "Love it!"
    "Liked it well enough"
    Overall

    I liked this well enough. I agree with some previous reviews - the main character is a little bit "dumb" considering the fact that she's a PhD student at Harvard. But otherwise I enjoyed the story and the narration by Katherine Kellgren is really great - love her different voices. The beginning is great, middle lagged and was repetitive, but liked the ending!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Utterly Engrossing"
    Overall

    I love audio books as I spend a lot of my time in the car commuting, but even as a veteran audio book listener I was surprised how engrossed I became with this story! The mystery of Harriet's disappearance left me wondering - and when I got sucked into the whole investigation I found myself listening to this not only in the car but also at home while doing chores! Simon Vance's narration is excellent helps heighten the story as well.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Thomas says: "Neverwhere is Great"
    "An excellent listen!"
    Overall

    For any audio book the most important thing to me is enjoying the narrator's voice -- love Neil Gaiman reading his own work! The story is captivating and very engaging. Loved the imaginative use of London as the backdrop. Only taking one star off because it does take a little time to get into the story at first, but give it time! It's a great listen!
