    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    We all know a significant part of how well you enjoy a book is how well the narrator performs it and Ray Porter did a great job. Beyond that, the story had enough twists and turns to keep it fun. Sometimes you could anticipate where the story was going, but it happened in such a way that you were happy to see you were reading the characters right. Definitely built some great tension at the end. Will look for more by the same author and narrator.

  • What Every BODY Is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent’s Guide to Speed-Reading People

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Story

    I'm sure the author is very knowledgeable about the subject of the book, which helped to overcome how poorly the book was read. The narrator was so stiff in his reading that parts that were meant to be humorous came across as dry, mechanical and totally un-engaging. Still, I listened through to the end as I love insight into how to better read people.

    Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Childhood friends, then high school buddies, then long-distance confidantes, they barrel forward with their lives on sometimes parallel, occasionally intersecting, and often divergent paths. Yet the paths are always there, well-trod and deep.

    I enjoyed the book and the back and forth messages. The narrators did a good job of conveying emotions that had me laughing and even a shedding a few tears. Good light listen.

    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.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Overall - very engaging"
    Overall

    Interesting book and the narrator was good. Enjoyed the whole thing until the completely unnecessary twist at the end that unfortunately plays through my mind more than the interesting story line leading up to it. I would still recommend the listen, but wish the author had ended the story just a bit sooner than he did.

    It's Katie Peterson's job to be a mouthy DJ, but being mouthy just got personal. Jess Harkins has started construction on a 60-story office tower next to Katie's quaint local radio station. She'd hate his building anyway: Who needs another high-rise? But Katie especially dislikes having her view blocked by the guy who turned down the chance to be her "first". So it's time for a little payback.

    Sandra says: "Very good book."
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    Didn't even listen to the whole thing because the back and forth between and male and female readers, each doing multiple voices including each others, was so distracting and poorly done. Especially didn't like the woman's voice when she was trying to sound like different women's characters. The effect of one was like listening to an absurd cartoon character, which was both annoying and distracting from the story line. The premise of the story could have been interesting, but the voices lost me too early to ever know.
