    For Tess Monaghan, the unsolved murder of a young federal prosecutor is nothing more than a theoretical problem, one of several cases to be deconstructed in her new gig as a consultant to the local newspaper. But it becomes all too tangible when her boyfriend brings home a young street kid who doesn't even realize he holds an important key to the man's death.

    Story

    Sections are separated by very irritating music. Why do they ruin good audiobooks by adding this stuff???
    The other problem was that there is a section where the recording is corrupted.

    Story
    (16)

    For Deputy District Attorney Samantha Kincaid's 32nd birthday, she gets an unusual gift: a homicide call out. The crime scene is in the elite Hillside neighborhood in Portland, Oregon. The victim is hotshot investigative reporter Percy Crenshaw, who has been bludgeoned to death in his carport.

    Amy says: "Good book. Bad narrator."
    "Not *that* bad, really!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this story -- and the narrator wasn't that bad. Not a great narrator that makes the story worth listening to all by themselves, but she was fine, and even though the british accent was an odd choice, it wasn't *that* bad.

    Prodigal Summer weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives in southern Appalachia. At the heart of these intertwined narratives is a den of coyotes that have recently migrated into the region. Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist, watches them from an isolated mountain cabin where she is caught off-guard by Eddie Bondo, a young hunter who comes to invade her most private spaces and her solitary life.

    Overall

    I enjoy listening to books read by the author (when they can read well, which Kingsolver *does*).

    This is really a lovely book and kept my interest better than other books written with this structure -- which is that it switches back and forth between 3 different stories of 3 differenet people, only related during the story by living in the same area.

    Also, though I personally agree with Kingsolver's point of view, I think she comes off as a tiny bit too preachy or self satified in her essays. Here she manages to present her point of view in an interesting manner, without sacraficing the story. By making the story partly about the conflicts her characters run into because of their points of view, they are the story, instead of being interjected like vitamin shots.
