    Ruth Galloway receives a phone call that bears shocking news. A friend of hers from college, Dan Golding, has been killed in a fire at his Lancashire home. Her shock turns to alarm when she gets a letter from Dan. He has made a discovery that will change archaeology forever but he needs Ruth's advice. Even more alarming, he sounds vulnerable and frightened. DCI Harry Nelson is also rediscovering his past. Up north for a holiday, he meets his former colleague Sandy MacLeod, now at Blackpool CID.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dying Fall to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print version.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clare Corbett?

    BRING BACK Jane McDowell! Clare Corbett is a terrible match for these characters! I'm going to finish the book, bit I'm dreading hearing the male characters talk. I can't comment on their accents, but she sounds as if she's doing parodies of male voices.

  • The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

    Things have never been easy for Oscar, a sweet but disastrously overweight, lovesick Dominican ghetto nerd. Oscar dreams of becoming the Dominican J. R. R. Tolkien and, most of all, of finding love. But he may never get what he wants, thanks to the Fuku: the curse that has haunted Oscar's family for generations, dooming them to prison, torture, tragic accidents, and, above all, ill-starred love. Oscar, still waiting for his first kiss, is just its most recent victim.

    Kathleen says: "Fabulous listen"
    "I wish Junot Diaz had done the reading himself."

    Would you listen to The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao again? Why?

    No. I didn't like the narrator. He did well at switching between accents and voices but his narrator voice was too much like a radio announcers.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and why?

    The mother.


    Any additional comments?

    The reading I heard of the Wonderland chapter on Selected Shorts blew the reading of it in the book WAY OUT of the water!

    (11791)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "I only wish it were longer!"

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

    It was wonderful to hear it in her own voice, with her inflection and emotion.


    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    Not sure.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    Her emotional honesty, both when she was being funny, and when she wasn't.
