  • Mr. Perfect

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Linda Howard
    • Narrated By Laura Hicks
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    What would make the perfect man? That's the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favorite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted - or will just muscular do? As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along email lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered....

    Judy says: "Oldie but Goodie!"
    "Good story ruined by a mediocre narrator......."
    Any additional comments?

    The storyline was good, not great (a bit predictable). The narrator completely grated on my nerves. Her male voices all sounded like a grumpy old man who has smoked for 40 years, and her elderly lady voice sounded like the wicked witch of the west. Too bad really, because I would have enjoyed the book much more with a different narrator.

  • Finding Me: A Decade of Darkness, a Life Reclaimed

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Michelle Knight, Michelle Burford
    • Narrated By Maria Cabezas
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world.

    Courtney says: "A True House of Horrors!"
    "Her Attitude is Amazing!"

    I rarely give a 5-star rating, and the writing in this book is average at best....but, Michelle's courage alone warrants this rating. Let me also say how baffled I am at previous reviewers who say most of the information contained in this book was in news reports. I would estimate a mere 10% was in the press.

    Her attitude, ability to forgive, and outlook on the future are quite remarkable. I hope she made A LOT of money from this book, because she deserves to live the rest of her life doing what she enjoys. May God truly bless her from now on!

  • Twilight: The Twilight Saga, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Stephenie Meyer
    • Narrated By Ilyana Kadushin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "A waste of my time this wasn't."
    "Truly perplexed...."

    After months of coaxing by many people, I finally gave in and downloaded this book. I wanted to like it, tried to like it, but just couldn't get there. It was absolute drudgery and I struggled to make it to the end. But I did, and have no interest in continuing with the series. Once it was finally over, all I could think was "I wasted two credits on this"? The only reason I rated it three stars is because I can see the draw to teenagers, but adults? No way....I am truly perplexed!

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    • ABRIDGED (12 hrs and 6 mins)
    • By Audrey Niffenegger
    • Narrated By Maggi-Meg Reed, Christopher Burns

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"

    I am truly amazed so many people rated this book so highly......I found my mind wandering constantly. WAY too much detail -the story could have been told in half the time! I usually like this type of story, but I wish I had the time it took to listen to this book back. I wouldn't have missed a thing.......

  • Chill Factor: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Sandra Brown
    • Narrated By Stephen Lang

    Cleary, North Carolina, is a sleepy mountain town, the kind of place where criminal activity is usually limited to parking violations. Not so, lately. Four women have disappeared from Cleary over the past two years. And there's always a blue ribbon left near the spot where each of the women was last seen. There are no bodies, no other clues, and no suspicion as to who their abductor might be. And now, another woman has disappeared without a trace.

    Susan says: "I'd have peeked at the ending ..."

    This was one of my all-time favorite audiobooks. I can usually figure mysteries out well in advance of the ending, but this one kept me on my toes until the very last word. In addition, the narrator's different voices for each character were superb - I grew up in Tennessee and can usually spot a fake southern accent a mile away, but not so in this case. I have already recommended this audiobook to several of my friends.
