    Eva never really wanted to be a mother - and certainly not the mother of a boy who ends up murdering seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and a much-adored teacher who tried to befriend him, all two days before his 16th birthday. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood, and Kevin’s horrific rampage, in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her estranged husband, Franklin.

    Would you consider the audio edition of We Need to Talk About Kevin to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I think the narrator added a lot of emotion to the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complexity of the relationships. The story was complicated and perverse while remaining very real and compassionate.


    Which character – as performed by Coleen Marlo – was your favorite?

    Eva. She is the only character that we really get to understand and whose mind we get to delve into.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt very emotionally drained at the end. Not only does the conclusion surprise, it also adds a level or realness and sorrow that I found extremely moving.


    Any additional comments?

    This has been one of my favorite audiobooks, not only because of the story but also because of the performance. Overall I think the novel is well worth a read.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Help to be better than the print version?

    I think both would be equally enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters. You really learned to love the characters and I, particularly, was anxious to know how the book ended.

    I like that the book was 'educational' and 'political.' I use quotations because obviously race and civil liberties is a MUCH LARGER subject, but at least the author isn't afraid to go there.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Even though there were difference voices for the characters they all mimicked each other at the appropriate times and I felt like the narrations were constant.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I will admit I got a bit teary toward the end, however I still felt hopeful and committed.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)

    Story
    (15582)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Good, but predictable."

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Craig Wasson?

    Yes. But not for a while.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    Yes. This book is noted for being a deviation from King's traditional thriller/horror novels and because of that I'd like to read something else of his. While this novel isn't necessarily bad, I found it to be predictable and left me wanting more of a resolution at the end. Throughout the book I kept waiting for something to happen, then when anything did happen it didn't satisfy. The first half of the book was without a doubt the best, before the characters get stagnant, but the second half lagged and honestly got repetitive.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Jake. I found little variation in Wasson's reading for some of the characters (granted there are a lot), and I specifically didn't care for how Sadie was performed.


    Was 11-22-63 worth the listening time?

    It was good for one listen but I wouldn't listen again. It was long and I didn't enjoy every minute of it.
