    Two families, who would otherwise never have come together, meet by chance at the Baltimore airport: the Donaldsons, a very American couple, and the Yazdans, Maryam's fully assimilated son and his attractive Iranian wife. Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. After the instant babies from distant Asia are delivered, Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Digging to America to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters - how real and believable they are.


    What does Blair Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She uses accents to give personality to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Anne Tyler books lend themselves well to audio books. Her characters feel so real when the books are read out loud.

    Story

    A luminous, powerful novel that establishes Rachel Cusk as one of the finest writers in the English language. A man and a woman are seated next to each other on a plane. They get to talking - about their destination, their careers, their families. Grievances are aired, family tragedies discussed, marriages and divorces analyzed. An intimacy is established as two strangers contrast their own fictions about their lives.

    Every character went on and on with their stories and opinions. There never seemed to be a point. I don't even know why it was called Outline. I fell asleep at the end and it is too boring to go back and listen to it.

    Story

    The narrator was good but I started rolling my eyes at the female characters . I won't give away the plot but there was a point where I just didn't like any of the females and I wondered how this guy could possibly be around so many unbalanced women. I felt kind of annoyed at the end.

    Story

    Stupid story, poorly written and so poorly narrated, it was almost impossible to listen to. I would suggest the girl who narrated should find something that doesn't involve acting or reading aloud and the author should not give up his day job

    Story

    I have read all of his work and this is the first time I was bored, indifferent about the characters and just thought the story was lame. Very disappointing. Has he finally run out of interesting ideas? Even if you are an avid fan, I wouldn't bother with this one.

    Alone in an empty house, Lucy tries to imagine the lives of her two young children. They have been gone for seven years, and she is tormented by the role she played in that heartbreaking loss. You can hardly see a glimpse of the sexy, edgy woman she used to be. Back then, she was a magnet for men like Matt, who loved her beyond reason, and Griffin, who wouldn't let go but always left her wanting more. Now the lies they told and the choices they made have come to haunt all three of them.

    I found the male narrator's voice kind of annoying, but the story was good and it hit a nerve with me when it took an unexpected turn in the storyline. However, the ending felt like he just didn't know how to end it. It was disappointing and I was left feeling like the story was left hanging. As a writer myself, I can think of 10 different endings that would have been better.
