  • The Burden of Proof

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Scott Turow
    • Narrated By John Bedford Lloyd
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Presumed Innocent was the fiction debut of the decade - a magnetic work of suspense that earned Turow acclaim for his unparalleled storytelling gifts. Now, in a brilliant follow-up, Scott Turow stakes his claim as an American master, in a mesmerizing novel of law, family and deceit. Alejandro "Sandy" Stern - the brilliant defense lawyer from Presumed Innocent - comes home to discover that his wife of 30 years has committed suicide, leaving behind a web of mystery, money, and guilt.

    Suzn F says: "The Best Yet"
    "Too Predictable"
    What disappointed you about The Burden of Proof?

    This book was disappointing because of so many things. I found the story to be weak and predictable. In fact, I lost interest after the first hour or so, but I forced myself to listen to the end.

    What was most disappointing about Scott Turow’s story?

    Too predictable and generic characters.

    What didn’t you like about John Bedford Lloyd’s performance?

    The voice was too annoying. It just grates on the nerves.

  • Gone for Good

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By Harlan Coben
    • Narrated By Jonathan Marosz
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In a bold novel, Harlan Coben (Tell No One) continues to stake out new ground in suspense, unleashing a haunting tale of secrets and betrayal...and of one man's search for his missing brother that spirals into a breakneck hunt for a killer, a victim, and the truth.

    Ed says: "Excellent twists and turns"
    "Twists & Turns"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the story was interesting & kept me engaged until the end.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone for Good?

    The ending.

    What three words best describe Jonathan Marosz’s voice?

    Nasal, ill fitting

    Do you think Gone for Good needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think this book needs a follow up. The ending was just right.

    Any additional comments?

    I just didn't enjoy the fact that you could hear talking in the background as the narrator spoke. That was annoying, distracting, and made me feel as though this book was not professionally made.

  • The Help

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Kathryn Stockett
    • Narrated By Jenna Lamia, Bahni Turpin, Octavia Spencer, and others
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Sadly Disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the story was more interesting and better written. I found it to be a sad stereotype of the characters. It also seemed to gloss over most of the characters in an attempt to move the story along. At the end, we're left clueless as to whether Skeeter ever really even gets what's going on around her.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Kathryn Stockett again?

    I don't really feel as though I would be inclined to listen to another one of her books.

    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    None that I can think of.

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Help?

    I think that the scene at Ms. Celia's house involving the naked man was totally unnecessary and added nothing to the story. Seemed to me like it was just merely a filler of sorts.
