    Maybe it was those extra five pounds I'd gained. Maybe it was because I was about to turn the same age my mother was when I lost her. Maybe it was because my husband and I seemed to be running out of things to say to each other. But when the anonymous online study called "Marriage in the 21st Century" showed up in my inbox, I had no idea how profoundly it would change my life. It wasn't long before I was assigned both a pseudonym and a caseworker. And, just like that, I found myself answering questions.

    Story

    Much of this novel takes place via email conversations and facebook chats between characters and the narrator reads the email address and subject line of each email or the handles of the chatters. This can get really annoying and repetetive to hear over and over again. The story itself was an all right, light listen, but audio is probably not the best format for this type of book.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs)

    Story
    (7140)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

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

    One of my favorites.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Philip as he was a hero as well.


    Have you listened to any of Edward Herrmann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    One man's struggle to overcome unthinkable odds.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned a lot about the Pacific side of WWII, but in a personal way.
