    A debut of extraordinary distinction: through the trials of one unforgettable family, Ayana Mathis tells the story of the children of the Great Migration, a story of love and bitterness and the promise of a new America. In 1923, 15-year-old Hattie Shepherd flees Georgia and settles in Philadelphia, hoping for a chance at a better life. Instead, she marries a man who will bring her nothing but disappointment and watches helplessly as her firstborn twins succumb to an illness a few pennies could have prevented.

    Suzn F says: "Hattie and her Family Tragically Flawed"
    "One of the greatest books of all time!"

    Story

    This is easily one of the best books I have listened too. In a word this work is BRILLIANT! What Ms. Mathis does with language and imagery awes me at every step. The structure, the style, the prose - all perfection.

    By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited at home and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king, here, in Jordan Belfort's own words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called the Wolf of Wall Street.

    Elisabeth says: "My most inthralling listen in a while"
    "Good narrator but his women's voices are grating."

    Story

    This is worth listening to. It's a good story about corruption on Wall St. The only thing I found difficult is when the narrator does the women's voices, they are all screeching. I've had to turn the volume down on my headphones so it wouldn't pierce my eardrums. He should've either read the female voices in his own voice or work on his lady acting.

  • Bright Lights, Big Ass

    Jen Lancaster hates to burst your happy little bubble, but life in the big city isn't all it's cracked up to be. Contrary to what you see on TV and in the movies, most urbanites aren't party-hopping in slinky dresses and strappy stilettos. But lucky for us, Lancaster knows how to make the life of the lower crust mercilessly funny and infinitely entertaining.

    Rebecca says: "She can be very funny."
    "Please don't buy this book."

    Story

    This book was offensive. It is by and about a woman who thinks it's charming to be rich, spoiled, selfish and helpless. I couldn't believe the reviews were good. I suspect they were written by the protagonist herself. I thought it was going to be a cute, witty chick book because I love reading light stuff but found myself compelled after listing to most of it taking to the audible review section to warn you about this awful book. That the protagonist thinks she is charming is like a punch in the gut every time she tries to make a joke. It's snobby and sexist. I can't imagine a worse chick novel.
