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

    Yh. Its short and spicy and with a nice light and esoteric humour.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not really, a tad slow for the plot.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This is my last letter.

    Before they Go the F**k to Sleep, they need to Shut the F**k Up. If you give a kid a cookie, will he shut the f**k up? That is the question at the heart of this hilarious, deeply honest, profanity-laced book for parents who will do whatever it takes for a moment’s peace.

    What did you love best about If You Give a Kid a Cookie, Will He Shut the F--k Up??

    I loved the way it comes all the way back around. Like a circle. Or better yet like a cookie!!!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Well the narrator made obvious the preparation he has to do for the voice. The long pauses...nah. Didn't like that.


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

    Yep


    Any additional comments?

    Don't give the damn greedy kid the cookie. Send him to bed.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Where does The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have just started using Audible, and The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo was a satisfying initiation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Lisbeth in her lawyer's bedroom, giving him a taste of his own medicine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had expected a fantasy type book but was thouroughly surprised and content with the realistic yet out there plot.
