    For the second time in his short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at 14, in a hideous echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn - until the Boston PD puts Detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is one part of a killer’s mission.

    Where does Last to Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    great story - Tess put out another great book - i loved it!


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    the narrator has a lisp and I found it EXTREMELY distracting....i had to stop listening to the audiobook and go out and buy the hardback.


    Any additional comments?

    Whoever keeps hiring narrators with lisps needs to be fired.

    Alisa has spent the past five thousand years as a vampire, living alone and fighting for survival. In her loneliness, Alisa cannot resist bringing Teria, a descendant of her human family, into her life. But Alisa is surrounded by death and destruction, and just by knowing Alisa, Teri's life is at risk. Alisa's guilt grows when she becomes involved in a dangerous conspiracy. A top-secret group knows Alisa's secret and will stop at nothing to use her powers for their cause.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    loved the book & the story but i really wish the rest of the series was available on audio! How can anybody possibly think that only putting the 3rd book in a series on audio is ok?


    Any additional comments?

    get the rest of the series on audio!

    Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship - or an early grave.

    good story but it's very disheartening to really get into a good book and then find that the 2nd book isnt available for audio.

    Where does Sharp Objects rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Sharp Objects is definitely in my all time top 10! I listened to Gillian Flynn's other books and definitely was not disappointed with this one!


    What did you like best about this story?

    the main character is flawed but still very likeable


    What does Ann Marie Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the narrator can make or break an audiobook....Ann Marie definitely does not disappoint. she completely envelopes the listener into the messed up world of the heroine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    i laughed, i cried, i cheered....the end of the book had me wishing for more from Gillian Flynn! I've already listened to her other 2 books and now cant wait for Gillian to churn out the next exciting story!

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Would you listen to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter again? Why?

    I LOVED IT AND WOULD DEFINITELY LISTEN AGAIN. THE WAY THE AUTHOR MERGES HISTORY WITH FICTION WAS AMAZING!


    What about Scott Holst’s performance did you like?

    SCOTT DID A GREAT JOB. IT'S VERY EASY FOR A NARRATOR TO COMPLETELY RUIN A STORY, BUT SCOTT IS A GREAT NARRATOR!!

    In Such a Pretty Fat, Jen Lancaster learned how to come to terms with her body. In My Fair Lazy, she expanded her mind. Now, the New York Times best-selling author gives herself - and her generation - a kick in the X, by facing her greatest challenge to date: acting her age. Jen is finally ready to put away childish things (except her Barbie Styling Head, of course) and embrace the investment-making, mortgage-carrying, life insurance-having adult she's become.

    LISTENING TO THE AUDIO BOOK GIVES THE WHOLE THING A MUCH MORE PERSONAL FEEL. ITS SO EASY TO GET LOST IN THE STORIES AND FEEL LIKE YOU ARE JUST SITTING BACK LISTENING TO YOUR BEST FRIEND. JEN IS AN EXTRODINARY STORY TELLER!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I LAUGHED, I CRIED, I PEED MY PANTS.....

    I HAVE BEEN A FAN OF JEN'S FOR A LONG TIME. SHE IS AMAZINGLY FUNNY AND DOWN TO EARTH. I HAVE NEVER MET HER, BUT FEEL LIKE WE HAVE BEEN BESTEST OF FRIENDS SINCE CHILDHOOD. READ ALL OF HER BOOKS, YOU WONT REGRET IT!!

    Tess Gerritsen was a successful internist who left her practice to focus on her children and her writing. Gerritsen's medical suspense novels have consistently won critical and fan acclaim, and now, with The Surgeon, she delivers her most gripping work.

    this is a great book, i read it a few years ago and wanted to listen to it again. the only version available on audible is the abridged version. dont bother with this version - buy the book!! the abridged version cuts out so much background and you dont get to know Rizzoli as well as you should.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    another great story from Patricia Cornwell, but the audio quality was horrible. you can clearly hear where the sections were edited together....not smooth at all


    What didn’t you like about Kate Burton’s performance?

    the different accents werent very good - Jamie Berger ended up sounding like Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny....so did Pete Marino for that matter


    Was Red Mist worth the listening time?

    read the book - dont buy the audiobook

    So...you'd think after banishing an immortal being and a fallen High Priestess, saving Stark's life, biting Heath, getting a headache from Erik, and almost dying, Zoey Redbird would catch a break. Sadly, a break is not in the House of Night school forecast for the High Priestess in training and her gang. Juggling three guys is anything but a stress reliever, especially when one of them is a sexy Warrior who is so into protecting Zoey that he can sense her emotions.

    Would you try another book from P. C. Cast, and Kristin Cast and/or Cassandra Morris?

    OMG!! ANOTHER new narrator? The narrator for books 4 & 5 (Jenna Lamia) was AWESOME!! I loved her. I hate the narrator for this book (Cassandra Morris). It's like listening to Paris Hilton with a lisp. REALLY?!?! Why exactly would you have somebody with a lisp narrating books? Looks like they got a different narrator for the next book - hope she's better!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zoey of course!


    What didn’t you like about Cassandra Morris’s performance?

    she sounds like Paris Hilton with a lisp.....she cant get the voices right.....and she doesnt pronounce the words correctly


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    dont ever let Cassandra Morris narrate a book again
