    In Compound Fractures, Alan is forced to acknowledge that the perils that may bring him to his knees are not the dangers he recognizes, nor are they orchestrated by the nemesis he has long feared. Instead he is confronted by unexpected threats from unanticipated adversaries and by intimate betrayal from those who have been closest to him. He is compelled to reconsider what he has long believed about trust and about love while he is trying to cope with overwhelming loss and grief.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd only recommend it to those who have followed the series. I found that Elliot's connection to the 9/11 bombings and the Bin Laden family was absolutely ridiculous. I was also disappointed that there was no grieving for Lauren. Everyone, including the children, just went along like nothing happened. I think she deserved more. Ending with Allen having sex with some random person was not a very fulfilling way to end the series.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'm headed in a completely different direction. I need to listen to the last Hunger Games book. Don't laugh.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Dick is perfect for the part. He always has been.


    Did Compound Fractures inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    So disappointed, Stephen. You could have done so much better.

    In a searingly candid memoir that he authored himself, Grammy Award-winning pop icon Rick Springfield pulls back the curtain on his image as a bright, shiny, happy performer to share the startling story of his rise and fall and rise in music, film, and television, and his lifelong battle with depression.

    "Great book if you are a fan"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It offers a lot of insight regarding the inspiration for many of his songs. Sure, his life was a bit odd, but it is what it is. I love that he narrated the book himself. It added an air of personalization to the whole experience.

    It's 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. They both know that the next day, after college graduation, they must go their separate ways. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. As the years go by, Dex and Em begin to lead separate lives. And yet, unable to let go of that special something that grabbed onto them that first night, an extraordinary relationship develops between the two.

    Kathy says: "Great book, bad ending"
    "A bit boring"
    Overall

    Long and drawn out. They visit the characters every year, but it is all the same. He likes her. She likes him. They never quite connect for years and years and years and years.

    For Gwen Merchant, love has always been doled out in little packets - from her father, who buried himself in work after her mother's death, and from her husband, Peter, who's always been respectable and safe. But then an old college boyfriend, the irrepressible Elliot Hull, invites himself back into Gwen's life with a surprising proposition. Elliot, it turns out, is in need of a pretend wife, just for the weekend, in order to fulfill his dying mother's last wish.

    S says: "this book is nonsense. don't bother"

    Overall

    This book sounded good but it just goes on and on and on. I'm going to stick it out; but, I'm afraid it will never end.
