    Story

    Originally published in 1973, the groundbreaking, uninhibited story of Isadora Wing and her desire to fly free caused a national sensation. In The New York Times, Henry Miller compared it to his own classic, Tropic of Cancer and predicted that "this book will make literary history..." It has sold more than 12-million copies. Now, after 30 years, the revolutionary novel known as Fear of Flying still stands as a timeless tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood.

    "Wasted my credit"
    Overall

    John, I wish I'd read your review before I wasted a credit on this book. You're a better (or stronger willed) person than I am if you listened to the end.

    There may be people out that that can relate to Isadora Wing, but I am definitely not one of them.

    Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.

    R. D. MOORE says: "Earlier Work - Still Worth the "Read""
    "You gotta love Brockmann's Navy SEALs"

    Would you listen to Prince Joe again? Why?

    This is an enjoyable, easy listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Prince Joe?

    You can't help but fall for the tough Navy SEAL who makes a dying girl's wish to meet a prince a reality. Despite the inner emotional turmoil he feels, he's able to maintain his regal bearing and leave her feeling like she is a princess worthy of any prince's attention.

    Joe Catalonotto is one extremely talented man!

  • Bright Lights, Big Ass

    Story

    Jen Lancaster hates to burst your happy little bubble, but life in the big city isn't all it's cracked up to be. Contrary to what you see on TV and in the movies, most urbanites aren't party-hopping in slinky dresses and strappy stilettos. But lucky for us, Lancaster knows how to make the life of the lower crust mercilessly funny and infinitely entertaining.

    Rebecca says: "She can be very funny."
    "Not my style"
    Overall

    This was my first - and will be my only - Jen Lancaster book. I listened for over an hour hoping it would get better but I gave up on all "the f* bombs" and count it as a credit wasted.
