    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they were in the mood for an easy read. I liked that the main character was strong and she prevailed over the bad guys while finding love. The love story was a bit cheesy and over the top.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Julia Whelan narrated book. She did a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book. It was the exact type of thing I was looking for. Not too heavy in spite of the whole Russian mafia theme. It was more about survival and wits. The bad guys get what they deserve in the end. And there are quite a few bad guys.

  • The Grapes of Wrath

    At once naturalistic epic, captivity narrative, road novel, and transcendental gospel, Steinbeck’s, The Grapes of Wrath is perhaps the most American of American classics. Although it follows the movement of thousands of men and women and the transformation of an entire nation during the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s, The Grapes of Wrath is also the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads, who are forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

    Would you listen to The Grapes of Wrath again? Why?

    There are soooo many books yet to 'read' so I probably wouldn't...but I would highly recommend this to others.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ma. She had the biggest character transformation from meek wife to leader of the family.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes...but it was entirely too long for that! I ended up changing the speed to fast on my MP3 player so that I could get to the next 'thing' quicker. The narrator was good but a bit slow for my preference.

  • Lady Windermere's Fan

    Oscar Wilde's first play confronts the hypocrisy of public "morality" compared with genuine, private kindness. The reasons for its continued popularity are not difficult to identify: the play's witty dialogue contains many of Wilde's most quoted aphorisms, its stylish setting provides opportunities for elegant presentation, and its cast of memorable characters play out a story which is genuinely moving. This new audio production brings together a full cast worthy of Wilde's creative genius.

    Where does Lady Windermere's Fan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high. The only thing that prevents it from being in the top top, is that it was very short.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lady Windermere's Fan?

    The story, the performance.


    What about Juliet Stevenson and Samuel West ’s performance did you like?

    It felt like I was listening to an old fashioned radio show. It was wonderful!

    What did you love best about The Barefoot Executive?

    I liked the tidbits about not making excuses and just act, even if it's not perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think the main thing I will take away from this is that I really need to seek out motivational materials that help inspire me on my journey as an entrepreneur.


    What about Carrie Wilkerson’s performance did you like?

    I think she did a great job!


    Any additional comments?

    A great portion of this book was geared towards helping someone brainstorm what they can offer the world with a huge emphasis on the the author's success story. As someone who is already a small business owner, there were quite a few sections that just didn't apply to me at all. There were some good tidbits that I did get so it wasn't wasted time. I'm just now hungry for material that is more closely related to my stage in business.

  • The Lucky One

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    Would you try another book from Nicholas Sparks and/or John Bedford Lloyd?

    I would try another...but if they were the same as this...that would be the end of it.


    Would you recommend The Lucky One to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. The whole thing was a bit underwhelming to me. The only reason I picked this book was because I wanted to see the movie. I really liked the beginning of this book. Things took a turn south when further info was revealed about who the pervert sheriff was. I had a hard time reconciling that he could have been perceived as 'normal' some of the time but that he had such huge character flaws that spread the gamut in how he treated women and even his own child.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    His female characters made him sound like Tootsie or Mrs. Doubtfire...like a man doing a woman's voice badly with a terrible southern accent.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was soooo not prepared to like this book as much as I did. I don't like westerns at all, either in book form or movies. This book was just amazing. The character development made me really feel like I knew the characters in real life. I just got lost in it...and the deaths of some of the characters stayed with me long after the book was over.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really became attached to Gus. He was so funny and such a lady charmer. Underneath that, he was tough. He did the right thing even when it put his life at risk.


    Which character – as performed by Lee Horsley – was your favorite?

    All of them but Gus and Deet's characters were especially great. Lee Horsley's performance enhanced this terrific book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! But at 35 hours that was not possible.
