    Story
    (135)

    It's her birthday but lonely workaholic Dana Watts is at the office late, drafting a proposal. The very last interruption she expects comes in the form of the most beautiful breasts she has ever seen. These belong to an incredibly hot woman, who is standing in front of her, stripping to music. Laurel Stanley performs strip-o-grams to pay her way through school. She has never encountered a more ungrateful recipient than Dana. The uptight project manager makes it clear that she is furious to be distracted from her work by the "gift".

    Bonnie says: "Pretty good for light lesbian erotica"
    "Enjoyable story and exceptional narration"

    Story
    Would you listen to Thirteen Hours again? Why?

    Yes, already listened to it repeatedly. Fun story, feel good romance, plenty of sexy times, and lots of humor. Appreciated the author's wink at the reader by having the characters poke fun at the absurdity of their "meet cute" situation. Acknowledging the contrived elevator setting allowed me to just accept and enjoy the unfolding character development. I also enjoyed how the characters talked through their fears rather than going through the standard falling out and reconnecting at the climatic end. Instead this story had a nice evolution throughout and a satisfying conclusion. Would enjoy a sequel to see how the characters continue to grow and handle middle age, etc.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thirteen Hours?

    During the elevator scene, when Dana decided to be brave and honest with herself and Laurel.


    Which character – as performed by Alicyn Aimes – was your favorite?

    Alicyn Aimes did a wonderful job narrating both main characters. I would like to hear more narration from her but could not find her on Audible or elsewhere.


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

    Dana acknowledging her sexuality.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Bill Bryson has an excellent way of presenting the information. Thoroughly enjoyed the narrator.
