    "wonder book to listen to on the road"
    Overall

    I was thoroughly entertained for hours listening to this narration of the book. The narrator did a good job of accents and characters and the plot was complex enough to keep you listening. I hated having to fill up with gas and pause the book at stops along the way.

As a young lass, Sìleas depended on Ian to play her knight in shining armor. Five years later, Sìleas has grown from an awkward girl into an independent beauty who knows she deserves better than the reluctant husband who preferred war to his wife.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    if you don't mind characters that the author wants you to like but you would like to slap up along side the head, this book may be for you.


    What was most disappointing about Margaret Mallory’s story?

    The characters could not be that ridiculous in real life and still maintain a relationship. I know its fiction but characters have to be believable.


    What does Derek Perkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like the narrator. He is pleasant to listen to.


    What character would you cut from The Guardian?

    The two main characters


    Any additional comments?

    Sadly I bought a second of the authors books during a sale. I hope it is better.

    Caitlin Decter is young, pretty, feisty, a genius at math - and blind. Still, she can surf the net with the best of them, following its complex paths clearly in her mind. But Caitlin's brain long ago co-opted her primary visual cortex to help her navigate online. So when she receives an implant to restore her sight, instead of seeing reality, the landscape of the World Wide Web explodes into her consciousness, spreading out all around her in a riot of colors and shapes.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I liked the narrators and the voices seemed to be suitable for the characters. The book did get a bit wordy without substance several times...like it was trying to teach the reader instead of inform the reader but overall great story


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    I have a better understanding of search engines as a secondary benefit of reading a fiction.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The author has a few story lines and leaves you at the end of "Book One" not having a clue how they interrelate. I am beginning to detest publishers demands of trilogies instead of a good long novel.

    Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would...or should.

    What did you like best about Perfect on Paper? What did you like least?

    I think the author wanted the main character to be endearing...but I found I could not like her nor feel sorry for her. I almost quit listening several times. The narrator made it seem like you were listening to Sex in the City reruns


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Have to admit that some of the Honey cards where quite witty
