    Story
    (101)

    On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation.

    Victoria says: "I'm Going to Read the Actual Book"
    "Excellent Story - read adequately - enjoyable"
    Overall

    Excellent Story - author reads adequately - I listen to books not necessarily to be entained by the reader but to hear the story and I found the reader was fine and had adquate voice fluxuations for the stories tone. With the word "sadness" in the title you can guess it is a bit on the darker side. This was one of the better stories I have listed to this year.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    "Dont miss this gem!"
    Overall

    This was by far one of the best books I have ever listen to. The narration was flawless. One of those listens you dont want to end.

    "Excellent listen!"

    This was a great listen - well developed characters and setting and the narration was very good. If you have teenagers is a must listen!
