    What would make the perfect man? That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

    Story
    What disappointed you about Mr. Perfect?

    There was no suspense - the forshadowing is more like a giant red flag of what's to come. The plot had promise, but I found it so hard to believe a town would get into such an uproar over a list that women talk about at EVERY outing. So what? I wanted more from the psyco. In addition, the neighbors and thier relationship - really? C'mon. We start out with a strong-willed, independent, snarky Jaine.... so we think. The author can't possibly understand true "Corporate America" women and the lives we lead. I couldn't help but have scene's of Dolly Parton and Lily Tomlin in '9 to 5'.
    Alas, I downloaded this book because of the ratings... just a different set of readers/listeners I guess. TO BE FAIR, I don't enjoy romances but am a huge fan of Jonathan Kellerman and James Patterson. If those guys are your style, you won't enjoy this one.


    What could Linda Howard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The characters needed depth. Paper thin.


    Did Laura Hicks do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Laura Hicks did a good job with what she had to work with. Not the best I've ever heard - a bit whiny on many parts....even with a supposedly strong spirited character.

  • The Bonfire of the Vanities

    • UNABRIDGED (27 hrs and 28 mins)

    Tom Wolfe's best-selling modern classic tells the story of Sherman McCoy, an elite Wall Street bond trader who has it all: wealth, power, prestige, a Park Avenue apartment, a beautiful wife, and an even more beautiful mistress - until one wrong turn sends Sherman spiraling downward into a humiliating fall from grace. A car accident in the Bronx involving Sherman, his girlfriend, and two young lower-class black men sets a match to the incendiary racial and social tensions of 1980s New York City.

    What made the experience of listening to The Bonfire of the Vanities the most enjoyable?

    Great performance. Could work on speaking women's voices, but other than that - truly enjoyable.


    Which character – as performed by Joe Barrett – was your favorite?

    So versatile! Rev. Bacon... great job.
