    Story

    Never thought I'd be fascinated by a story about a bear & a boy. But this was great, well-written and perfectly read. Think this would appeal to both - adults & children (maybe 9 years + - because of some of the "drama".) A good combination of author & reader. Hope there are more to come.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Story

    A very slow-paced and depressing cast of characters. After listening until it put me in a depression - I took my anti-depressant and switched to another book. Can't believe this one was written by John Grisham; whose books I normally enjoy.

    Story

    If you are a dog lover, you MUST read this book. You will laugh, cry, smile, nod knowingly, and shake your head in anticipation of the dog's actions. Excellent story. One I'll never forget.

    Just confirmed what I believed about my "little shadow". I believe! I believe! Listen to this audio book; you won't be sorry. George Wilson's voice only helped to enhance this story. Can't wait to read Cameron's next book!

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    Story

    When I purchased "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", I purchased "The Girl Who Played with Fire", only because of the rave review for the entire trilogy. When I finished "Dragon Tattoo", it was good enough to make me read book 2, but by the time I finished this book, I was a true Stieg Larsson fan. I feel that Book 2 MADE this trilogy. At the end of Book 2, I had no choice but to read the conclusion of this story. You have to read all three, but Book 2 was the best of all of them! This trilogy has been incredibly addictive. The more I read, the more I wanted.

    I'm so sad that Stieg Larsson's life was cut so short. However, I'm so glad that he was able to touch so many lives with his gift of story-telling. I hope he can look down from Heaven and know that he's left his family well-provided for and has left his imprint on thousands of readers.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Story

    This is an incredible story. One that will stay with me forever. I've recommended it to all of my "reader" friends and ALL of them have contacted me to say "Thank You" for telling them about it. This book will make you go through every possible emotion. The narrator, Christopher Welch, provides the perfect voice for Enzo. His narration makes me recommend the audiobook over a hard copy.
    Garth Stein is a very gifted writer. I am an avid reader and rarely give a book 5 stars. In this case, I wish I could give it a ten!

    When the home of Alex Cross's oldest friend, Ellie Cox, is turned into the worst murder scene Alex has ever seen, the destruction leads him to believe that he's chasing a horrible new breed of killer. As Alex and his girlfriend, Brianna Stone, become entangled in the deadly Nigerian underworld of Washington D.C., what they discover is shocking: a stunningly organized gang of lethal teenagers headed by a powerful, diabolical man--the African warlord known as the Tiger.

    Lisa says: "Not the same read"
    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I've read every Alex Cross book that James Patterson has ever written. I love this character. However, similar to how Thomas Harris betrayed his characters in his Hannibal Lector book series, James Patterson has betrayed the character of Alex Cross.
    This book is a complete contradiction of Alex' rational and intelligent character. The plot is far-fetched and completely unbelievable. Patterson has become so obsessed with mass producing his books (most of which he now "co-writes"), that his is no longer loyal to his characters.
    Don't waste you time reading this comic book.

    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.

    Story

    The Help, by Kathryn Stockett, will stay with me forever. A turbulent time in history, the story is set in Jackson, Mississippi, just at the beginning of the civil rights movement. The story unfolds in the words of a budding white social activist, Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan, who is trying to break into the world of writing. She begins by collaborating with "The Help", black women on whom the country club sets relies and mistrusts. She enlists the help of Aibileen, a maid who's raised 17 children, and Aibileen's best friend Minny, who's found herself unemployed more than a few times after mouthing off to her white employers. Their heart wrenching stories and their bravery in risking their lives to reveal the ugly truth of racism, bring pride and hope to the black community. Skeeter's relationship with these strong black women begin to break down the wall that has divided the races for far too many years.
    At the end of this book, I felt as though I was leaving behind old friends. Most memorable book I've read in years. Inspirational!
