    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    Nancy says: "Perfect timing"
    "Committed"
    Overall

    I'm so glad when Marriage was the only way to stay together, they truely understood how much they loved each other. I on the other hand wasn't so lucky...We all should eventually decide. But, I loved all the different cultural ideas of marriage and statistics that the book brings up.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was just my book clubs monthly reading assignment...but it gave me a picture of what my mom must have experienced.


    What about Lisa Genova’s performance did you like?

    Great reading voice...very comfortable to listen to.


    If you could take any character from Still Alice out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Her husband...

    After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, 28-year-old Justin Halpern found himself living at home with his 73-year-old dad. Sam Halpern, who is “like Socrates, but angrier, and with worse hair,” has never minced words, and when Justin moved back home, he began to record all the ridiculous things his dad said to him.

    Michael says: "Really Funny! Should Be Up for an Audie Award"
    "I love your dad's S**T...."

    Dear Justin Halpem...I love your dad, I'm glad you took all his quirkyness with a great sense of humor.
    Dear Readers, This is just an entertaining 3.5 hour book, and it's just fun to laugh at someone's elses father. Hopefully, you can laught at your own fathers S**t afterwards, and love him even more.

    More than 50 years after its first publication, Doubleday's definitive edition of Anne Frank's famous diary generated an extraordinary amount of excitement when it was published in early 1995. Enthusiastically received by critics and readers alike, it reigned for nine weeks on The New York Times best seller list and will remain for all time the version that millions of readers will cherish.

    Cynthianna says: "First review I've written - Had to write it"

    A really great reader for this book...

    Story

    Just when Stacy Morrison thought she had it all, her husband of 10 years announced that he wanted a divorce. She was left alone with a new house that needed lots of work, a new baby who needed lots of attention, and a new job in the high-pressure world of New York publishing. Morrison had never been one to believe in fairy tales. As far as she was concerned, happy endings were the product of the kind of ambition and hard work that had propelled her to the top of her profession.

    Karen says: "The author should have had a professional narrator"
    "Falling apart in one piece...."
    Overall

    I would suggest that Stacey might release this book in 20 years, with updates..how did this custody effect Zak as a young adult?

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "House Rules..."
    Overall

    This is a really long audio book to listen to, with a predictable ending. But, I did spend the time listening, hoping for an unperdictable ending that didn't happen.
