    From the internationally bestselling author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist, the boldly imagined tale of a poor boy's quest for wealth and love. His first two novels established Mohsin Hamid as a radically inventive storyteller with his finger on the world's pulse. How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia meets that reputation - and exceeds it.

    Story

    From the opening line the author/reader has 'you', and you are the main character. Voice, pacing and story kept me hooked; luckily I was on a road trip or I probably would have driven in circles to finish it. Hamid is a master at his craft.

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    Story

    Harold Fry is a soft and sympathetic character who learns as much about himself as others on this impulsive journey. Jim Broadbent's reading is spot on. A bit rambling and repetitive at times, but overall a good listen

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Story

    Unbelievable what these men went through. Just when you thought all was lost, or that they were on the verge of being saved, a new twist. The opening through the survival at sea was riveting while the POW section went on and on a bit like torture; but to be fair, I have no idea what I would have left out. Amazing courage.
