    Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence, until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery.

    Dr. says: "Initially engaging, but ultimately not satisfying"
    "Awesome book and great reader!"

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

    Yes, and have already done so. It is a great storyline and I loved the narration by Gray. He had a way of making me believe Ed was right in my ears.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with the Doorman in it. I love dogs, and this one was particularly fun to imagine talking back to Ed


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The moments Ed had with the older lady were very touching...reminded the listener how human Ed was...reminded you he was a good guy.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this one. Well worth it.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Good story, a little vulgar for me"

    Would you try another book from Gillian Flynn and/or Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    Don't know if I'll go looking for one by Flynn. Her writing was a little "in your face" for my taste. I did, however, like the twist in the middle. Very much caught me off guard.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a prude, by any means, but I was a little put off by how many times I listened to so many words that I don't usually say. I don't know if it was more offensive listening to it or if I had read the words on a page, but if this isn't something you want to hear, don't download it. It is prominent.
