    Story

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.

    Overall

    This book confirms that true stories are the most poignant and the funniest.

    My pre-teen daughter, teen son and I listened to Julia's story five or six times during a cross-country road trip, cracking us up through 7 states. Several passages have entered our family's lexicon.

    Thanks Julia for helping us deal with the loss of our husband/father. There is still plenty to laugh about!

  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand: A Novel

    Story
    (1115)

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    "Magical Pairing of Author and Narrator"
    Overall

    Helen Simonson's beautifully imagined characters and Peter Altschuler's amusing and poignant narration join together delightfully in this audiobook. While I'm sure that Ms. Simonson's book stands up well in print, Mr Altschuler brings great heart and, well, OOMPH, and drew me along to the exciting conclusion. Exactly what I'm looking for in a great audiobook - very satisfying.
