    After the death of his beloved wife, after the loss of his advertising business to his once-trusted partner, after bankruptcy forced him from his home, Alan Christoffersen is a broken man. Leaving everything he knows, he sets out on an extraordinary cross-country journey; with only the pack on his back, he is walking from Seattle to Key West - the end of the map. Along the way, Alan begins to heal, meeting people who teach him lessons about love, sacrifice, and forgiveness. But in St. Louis, Alan faces another life-changing crisis, and now the journey is in jeopardy.

    What did you love best about Step of Faith?

    I loved this fourth installment of The Walk series and can't wait for the next one, which I imagine will be the end of the series. The characters he meets along the way are my favorite part of the stories.

    I strongly suggest starting with the first book The Walk and hearing them all in order. By the time you reach this one, Step of Faith, the characters will be like old friends.


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

    I could not stop until I reached the end.


    Any additional comments?

    The author is magnificent. Great stories with hidden meanings which speak to everyone.

    Liz Murray was born to loving but drug-addicted parents in the Bronx. In school she was taunted for her dirty clothing and lice-infested hair, eventually skipping so many classes that she was put into a girls' home. At age 15, Liz found herself on the streets when her family finally unraveled. She learned to scrape by, foraging for food and riding subways all night to have a warm place to sleep. Then, when Liz's mother died of AIDS, she decided to take control of her own destiny.

    Would you listen to Breaking Night again? Why?

    This is not the type of book I usually read but I have to say how much I loved it.I am inspired by Liz's story and it is a great reminder that it is possible to overcome great odds with resolve and dedication. Knowing it is a true story, I feel great admiration and affection for the author. Her childhood was so awful and yet she retained compassion for those who neglected her most. The journey to Harvard was long and painful but still she persevered. I recommend this book to anyone who needs inspiration or would enjoy a truly uplifting story. Once I started it I could not stop.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The journey from a despicable childhood to successful adult.


    Which character – as performed by Liz Murray – was your favorite?

    Liz, of course!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Her caring and affection for the parents she loved in spite of their weaknesses, illnesses and neglect.


    Any additional comments?

    Though I usually do not think authors make the best narrators, in this case it was perfect.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    What did you love best about Six Years?

    From the first paragraph I literally could not put this down. I listened to it driving, working, relaxing. What an awesome book!


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved the narrator. Pleasing voice, just enough inflection without overdoing it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think it is a good car-travel book. Not a steering wheel gripper, but definitely enjoyable.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    The story ending is unpredictable right up to the end. Every time I thought I had it figured out, new information came to light, turning my theory upside down.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely. Throughout the book, the question is "who did it?" And the information is doled out in just the right doses to keep you on edge.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    They made a good team. Both did a great job and complimented each other.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Actually, this would be a great movie. So many twists and turns to the story. I would call it a "cliffhanger" right up to the final chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to audiobooks in my car, and with this book, I would often arrive at my destination and stay in my car to hear more. It is a VERY good and entertaining audiobook.

    Where does Unwind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have to say this book is quite disturbing........and I put it in the same category as Hunger Games. Though it bothered me a lot to listen to it, I could not stop. It roped me in right away and I was compelled to listen to the end. For that reason I gave it 4 stars.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continuing drama and unpredictability of the story.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Easy to listen to. Appropriate voice for the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was continually horrifying.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a book that you can't put down, this one is for you. I listen to audiobooks in my car, and this one definitely makes the driving time pass quickly.
