    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the 2 title characters blended love with hot lovemaking... thrilling story I REALLY enjoyed this book, but listen to Love Means.....Courage as that is part one of this story. but either is good on its own.


    If you could take any character from Love Means... No Shame out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elijah...just because of his fresh innocence...

    You've seen him strutting across the green, knowing full well every eye is on him. College guys are the stuff of fantasies but there are those who rise to the head of the class, the "big man on campus" who is like a greek god with his bulging biceps, six pack abs, and legs that go on for miles. These dreamy hunks stride across campus, inciting lust with every step. Whether showering off after soccer, posing in the library stacks, or engaging in some male bonding at the fraternity house, these gorgeous lads and grads are good for arousing action.

    Marc says: "this narrator is awful."

    What would have made Big Man on Campus better?

    a young narrator that knows how to actually pronounce words... roy needs to retire... college stories read to me by my grandfather.. YUK. his frequent mispronunciations of common words is maddening!


    What could Shane Allison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    found a young, well read narrator. he is anything but "fresh"


    What didn’t you like about Roy Wells’s performance?

    I dont want my grampa reading "fresh, gay erotica" to me find a younger narrator


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didnt even finish it, the narrator just grated on my nerves too completely

    Ben Franklin's own lively story of his early years is a unique, fascinating, and influential look at this American founding father. It has been taught in schools as a moral tract, as a guide to self-improvement, and as the Great American Success Story. It also is relished both for its insight into colonial life and the mind of the man who most affected the development of our democratic form of government.

  • The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel

    Story

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    What made the experience of listening to The House of Silk the most enjoyable?

    Mr. Horowitz has done a masterful job of recreating Holmes and his methods and Watson as the completely capable friend, assistant, and chronicler. all in a completely engrossing double mystery. Derek Jacobi is the perfect narrator in the guise of an elderly Watson- the prologue and afterward are pieces of art in thier own rights
