    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't imagine anyone would like this.


    What was most disappointing about M. J. Rose’s story?

    What story?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Amazement! In whose imagination is this a sellable book?


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a longtime audible listener . . . but this "book" and I use the term loosely, is absurd. And the author introduces it like it's the next big idea. OMG!

    Things are finally looking up for defense attorney Mickey Haller. After two years of wrong turns, Haller is back in the courtroom. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next.

    What would have made The Brass Verdict better?

    This book would probably have been OK if read by Grupper.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Connelly again?

    I would give Connelly another try. I loved Lincoln Lawyer . . .


    What didn???t you like about Peter Giles???s performance?

    This guy Peter Giles is horrible. Constantly emphasizing the wrong words in the sentence. Why oh why was this guy hired? DITTO (From another review.) This read was nothing short of painful.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really disappointed with Brass Verdict . . . not even like the same author. I was excited when I found The Lincoln Lawyer because I love a good series. This ain't it! Sorry. With audio books, I think the narrator is more important than the story. A good reader can bring even a poor book to life. A poor reader will ruin anything he/she reads.

  • Free Short Story: “My Apology” from The Woody Allen Collection

    • UNABRIDGED (10 mins)

    Story
    (249)

    Woody Allen is at his best here, recounting a recurring dream that casts himself as one of history’s greatest thinkers: the imprisoned and condemned philosopher Socrates. In the face of execution, Allen’s version of Socrates is prepared for an ironic death, if not a noble one.

    SuiteSymphony says: "Disappointed"
    "Thanks for the Introduction"
    Overall

    I have not been a fan of Woody Allen films, but the more I listen to My Apology, the more I enjoy it. I have listened more than a half dozen times in the two weeks since downloading it, and each time I laugh longer and louder. What an unusual wit.
