    With help from her friends - the irascible gray cat Pewter, the wise corgi Tee Tucker, and Tally, the exuberant Jack Russell - Sneaky crisscrosses her home state of Virginia hoping to go where no cat since Socks Clinton has gone: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In the tradition of her heroine, Sojourner Truth, she takes her case to the masses. Journeying from the lair of the red-shouldered hawk to the nest of the tufted titmouse, from a pasture full of curmudgeonly cows to the stately halls of Monticello, the tenacious tiger cat even secures the chattering support of Thomas Jefferson’s mice.

    In Northanger Abbey, a young woman's penchant for sensational Gothic novels leads to misunderstandings in the matters of the heart. Austen's first, this is considered by many to be among her most charming novels.

    Story
    What did you like best about Northanger Abbey? What did you like least?

    The story was classic Jane Austin, the story brought me back to my visit to Bathe. The audio was so bad it seemed to be at a very fast speed, and would at times sound like it was sped up to double speed. The audio also cracked through out. It was very quite or rating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Northanger Abbey?

    When Catherine went to Northangsr Abbey and the way Henry teased her.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Try the story with a differnt narrator.

    What disappointed you about Blood and Circuses?

    There was too much singing. I would have liked it better it if there was no singiing. A little is fine this was over the top.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kerry Greenwood again?

    Yes I love the series just not this story

    Sports agent Myron Bolitar is poised on the edge of the big-time. So is Christian Steele, a rookie quarterback and Myron's prized client. But when Christian gets a phone call from a former girlfriend, a woman who everyone, including the police, believes is dead, the deal starts to go sour. Suddenly Myron is plunged into a baffling mystery of sex and blackmail.

    "Not just for men"
    Overall

    I just started listening to Harlan Coben books, and at first I was a little worried that these would be just for men, however I was pleasantly surprised - I love the characters and the stories always seem to have twists and turn.

  • Tales of The City

    Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City has blazed a singular trail through popular culture, from a groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a television event that entranced millions around the world. The first of six novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, Tales is both a wry comedy of manners and a deeply involving portrait of a vanished era.

    Dan says: "a collection of abridged books"
    "Brings me back to the City"
    Overall

    What I love most about this story is all the real reference to the City I love the most. I grew up in the Bay Area and was the first in 6 generations to move out of the state. The characters are interesting and the references bring me back home.
    What I didn't like was the quick movement from one plot to the next. Not sure if this is because it was originally done as a newspaper story or if it is the way it was edited for Audible. I find that I am often going back just to make sure I that I did not miss something by not paying attention.

    I am still enjoying the story.

    "Poor Audio"
    Overall

    I love The Cat Who books, but the audio on this book is soooooooooo bad, I can barely hear it. I can't even tell if I like the reader. I am not sure I can listen I have my IPOD on so loud and I still can't hear.

    I have no clue about the book because it is o hard to hear.

    What if all your wishes could come true? Blink your eyes, drink a fizzing pink potion, and poof! Life is perfect. That's Rachel's situation. Except she's not the one who suddenly has magical powers. Her younger sister is. And as Rachel would tell you, spellbooks are wasted on the young!

    "Listened with my daughter"
    Overall

    This was a great book. My daughter, a very typical 14 year old who wants to spend time with her parents as long there is absolutely nothing else to do(and no one will find out), and I listened to this book together while traveling in the car. It was a great coming of age story.

    It touches on many of the items that teenage girls go through, popularity, changing of friends, clothes, friendship, boys and parents.

    My daughter loved this, because it was told from the teens eyes, not her parents.

    Carmen got the jeans at a thrift shop. They didn't look all that great; they were worn, dirty, and speckled with bleach. On the night before she and her friends part for the summer, Carmen decides to toss them. But Tibby says they're great. She'd love to have them. Lena and Bridget also think they're fabulous. Lena decides they should all try them on. Whoever they fit best will get them. Nobody knows why, but the pants fit everyone perfectly.

    V.T. Fletcher says: "A great teen read..."
    "Good for Teenagers"
    Overall

    This was a great listen, but make sure it is older teenagers. The story lines are realistic for teens, but maybe uncomfortable for preteens. The girls experience many things including relationships with boys. Recommended for mature 13 year olds and older. We can't wait to listen to the Second Summer of the Traveling Pants.

    Sue Monk Kidd's stunning debut, The Secret Life of Bees, has transformed her into a genuine literary star. Now, in her much-anticipated new novel, Kidd has woven a transcendent tale that will thrill her legion of fans and cement her reputation as one of the most remarkable writers at work today.

    Reid says: "Such a disappointment"
    "Nice but not moving"
    Overall

    This was nice listen to, the reader had a nice southern accent. It was pleasant but not extremely moving. The plot was not indepth and seem to skim the surface of the story.
