    In this dark and atmospheric rendition of the Cinderella fairy tale, an intelligent young Englishwoman is made into a virtual slave by her evil stepmother.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was easy to listen to while driving or doing other things. A break in the listening did not dampen the books story.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Harry Angstrom was a star basketball player in high school and that was the best time of his life. Now in his mid-20s, his work is unfulfilling, his marriage is moribund, and he tries to find happiness with another woman. But happiness is more elusive than a medal, and Harry must continue to run--from his wife, his life, and from himself, until he reaches the end of the road and has to turn back....

    J. Kovler says: "A Thinking Man's Novel"
    "not what I expected"
    Overall

    It takes a while to get into this & it never really takes you away. Certainly a dive into the way men think! Or at least, this man.

    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"
    "GRIPPING"
    Overall

    This entire trilogy is fabulous. Intellegent, gripping, adult and engaging. I had a heck of a time putting it down.

    Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas, and all through Pine Cove, California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and generally getting into the holiday spirit.

    colleen says: "Another Pine Cove winner"
    "LAUGH OUT LOUD!"
    Overall

    I have read & listened to this book more times than I can count. I have also purchased it for more friends than I can count. This is one of the most entertaining books that I have ever come across and read it when I need a lift. The characters are fabulous and laugh out loud funny. "The Narrator" and "Fruit Bat!" (said with many rolling r's) have become a part of my friends and family's vocabulary.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "wow"
    Overall

    Cool book! I loved the way this was written...the detail & explaination of the narrators thoughts, feelings and experiences was incredible. Listen to this book!
