  • Monday Mornings: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 12 mins)
    • By Sanjay Gupta
    • Narrated By Christian Rummel
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Every time surgeons operate, they're betting their skills are better than the brain tumor, the faulty heart valve, the fractured femur. Sometimes, they're wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine is the back drop for the entire book.

    Laurie says: "Get me a writer, stat!!"
    "Ho-hum medical novel"
    Would you try another book from Sanjay Gupta and/or Christian Rummel?

    Although I like the author on CNN, his charisma does not translate onto the pages. The story was ho-hum, not much of a plot line and he wrapped it all up too quickly - like he was tired of writing this book and wanted to get it over with. Characters were not compelling and nothing much to keep you motivated to listen longer or wish for another novel.

    Has Monday Mornings turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO - but would not get another book from this author. Robin Cook or Michael Crichton were far better medical writers.

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


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

  • Stay Close

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 8 mins)
    • By Harlan Coben
    • Narrated By Scott Brick
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Robin says: "Why did I think I liked Harlan Coben novels?"
    What was most disappointing about Harlan Coben’s story?

    I have been a Harlan Coben fan and have listened to most all of his earlier works, he was not up to his usual standards in this book. Although the ending was pretty good the plot line was thin, the story didn't hang together and the reader ran one conversation into another without a pause so sometimes you didn't know who was speaking.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Reader's voice was rather flat and ran conversations together. No pauses to change scenarios.

  • Smokin' Seventeen: A Stephanie Plum Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Janet Evanovich
    • Narrated By Lorelei King
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    WIpiglet says: "Been there read that!"

    12 chapters into this book - I quit. It is stupid, has little plot and just doesn't hold my interest at all. The reader is very good, doing a lot of voices but the story isn't worth my time listening to it. I have never written a negative review before but after I saw the author on the Today show I felt I had to listen to it. Major disappointment - was looking for a good mystery or crime story but this was more about Lula eating and Plums' boyfriends and their sexual exploits than anything else.
