    "Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly - deliciously - it was not."

    I loved this book just like I loved the 2 others in the triolgy. The plot was not at all as I thought it would have been but it was a great book! I will miss Katniss, Peta and Gayle. It's always sad when a story is over.

    Jennifer Harper breaks new ground in her fast-paced, scandalously entertaining novel. Listeners will be amazed by the way Harper weaves this juicy tale of betrayal, love, and friendship told in a witty style. Harper has a fresh, engaging voice that will intrigue, delight, and challenge listeners. Still a Friend of Mine is a fresh, enthralling, and witty tale that follows the journey of two best friends from college through their scandals, dating escapades, and family drama until a man comes between them.

    Barbara Armstrong says: "Disappointed"
    "terrible narration"
    Overall

    The story line was good. I enjoyed the book but the main characters kept jumping back and forth with partners, just when i thought cheyenne and Todd were going to make it BOOM...another change...The narrator was TERRIBLE the recording was really bad. If it weren't for that I would have really enjoyed this book. The narrator didn't speak english very well , it almost bordered on ebonics, it was not good.

    It would be a good thing for the author to pay for a PROFESSIONAL recording with a PROFESSIONAL narrator.

    Lit follows Mary Karr's descent into the inferno of alcoholism and madness - and her astonishing resurrection. Karr's longing for a solid family seems secure when her marriage to a handsome, Shakespeare-quoting poet produces a son they adore. But she can't outrun her apocalyptic past. She drinks herself into the same numbness that nearly devoured her charismatic but troubled mother, reaching the brink of suicide. A hair-raising stint in "The Mental Marriott" awakens her to the possibility of joy, and leads her to an unlikely faith.

    glamazon says: "Compelling."
    "Loved the book"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. Mary is a good narrator and her story is worth listening to. It was sad at times, but a very good book.

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    Lydia says: "Another winner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips"
    "Laugh out loud entertaining!"

    I loved this book and the narrator was great! The author is new to me and her sarcasm had me in stitches! I too have found a new favorite author!

    It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

    Elisabeth says: "Good for an intro to the Law of Attraction"
    "Good Inspiration"
    Overall

    I have listened to this book several times. I have the DVD and my son boght the daily teachings book for my desk at work for Christmas. It motivated me to put together a "vision board" for 2009 and has inspired me to think in a positive light and leave the negativity behind. I would recommend this book.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "Very Interesting"

    I enjoyed this book, the description of the "Trinity" was very interesting and made me laugh. I felt for this family and the absolute tragedy they experienced. I was glad to see the main character get peace of mind in the end.

    Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

    Kelley says: "I agree with Stephen King"
    "Excellent Read"
    Overall

    I really could not stop listening. This book kept me engaged the entire time. I was very surprised at the ending, but I really enjoyed the characters in that little southern town in Missouri...they are all pretty dysfunctional!

    Jacob is an Anglo-Dutch trader and adventurer, with a small holding in the harsh north. Despite his distaste for dealing in "flesh," he takes a small slave girl in part payment for a bad debt from a plantation owner in Catholic Maryland. This is Florens, "with the hands of a slave and the feet of a Portuguese lady." Florens looks for love, first from Lina, an older servant woman at her new master's house, but later from a handsome blacksmith, an African, never enslaved.

    Pablo says: "Great book"
    "Difficult to follow"
    Overall

    I am struggling with this book even now. It is very difficult to follow and separation between chapters is non existant. Disappointed but I will listen to it again after reading some of the other reviews.

    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    Lisa says: "Simple Pleasures!"
    "Fun book"
    Overall

    Athough this is definitely different from what Grisham is known for, it was a fun, lighthearted book. I enjoyed it. I laughed out loud a few times and as a parent of children leaving the nest I really could associate with what happened in the end.
