    While David Stark is asked to open a law office in Beijing, his lover, detective Liu Hulan, receives an urgent message from an old friend imploring her to investigate the suspicious death of her daughter, who worked for a toy company about to be sold to David’s new client, Tartan Enterprises.

    Overall

    I'm just not a fan of Lisa See. I've read quite a few of her books and each time I just feel - meh - at the end. I usually like the narrator, Janet Song, except she pronounced all the mandarin words incorrectly. That certainly wouldn't have been a bit deal if the book lived somewhere in the realm of compelling.

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Any additional comments?

    I love Molly Quinn on Castle, but as a narrator she is terrible! Every paragraph takes 20 minutes to get out, and for some reason her pronunciation of "the" is killing me...unfortunate because "the" occurs quite often in the story! I wasn't crazy about the narrator for the first 3 books, but after this one it makes me long for her. She also pronounces many of the words incorrectly (at least I'm assuming that's the case, as the previous narrator pronounced them differently - "stele" and "Idris" are not the same. Of course, this could be the same thing as Jim Dale saying 'Voldemor" for the first 4 HP books too...) I don't mind the male narrator as other readers do, in fact I feel a huge sense of relief when Molly Quinn's narration is over and the guy comes back on.

  • Super Sad True Love Story: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 21 mins)

    Story

    Gary Shteyngart, author of The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, creates a compelling reality in this tale about an illiterate America in the not-too-distant future. Lenny Abramov may just be penning the world’s last diary. Which is good, because while falling in love with a rather unpleasant woman and witnessing the fall of a great empire, Lenny has a lot to write about.

    Ryan says: "Dystopia Now"
    "Fabulous Listen!"
    Overall

    I loved this book...I think I loved it more because I listened to it, which isn't always the case. The narrators are absolutely perfect and the story is just as promised - super sad, but also hilarious.
