    After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

    What would have made The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared better?

    Would have been better if it had been funny after the first hour....


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something by Janet Evanovich, Beverly Lewis, or James Patterson


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared?

    Don't really know. I was so disinterested, I quit listening after about 3 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Boring. Not funny after initial escape.

    Author Jennifer Chiaverini’s beloved, heartwarming series continues with this celebration of family and friendship. As the wedding day of Sarah McClure’s daughter Caroline approaches, Sarah’s thoughts are filled with brides of Elm Creek Manor past and present. A wedding quilt is a powerful metaphor, and Sarah is determined that the blocks in her daughter’s quilt will display a vivid pastiche of love in all its varieties.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Disappointed that Chiaverini chose to use what should have been a wonderful celebration to make political statements....The characters didn't grow in this addition to the wonderful series.


    Has The Wedding Quilt turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. I loved all of the other books in this series and really looked forward to this one, but if the next one is like this, I will be finished.
