    This was an enjoyable read to me. The narrator did a great job of switching back and forth between characters.

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Thoroughly enjoyable read. Kept me guessing all the way through. Not the same old predictable murder story.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    It took me a while to get into this book. I devoured the first 2 books in the series quickly but this one didn't initially capture me. I had to sit it down for a couple months until I was ready to try again. I was not a fan of the political commentary which seemed to drag on for too long. I just couldn't wait to get to the parts with Lisbeth. Great ending to the series. I wish there could have been a 4th book.

    A novel of psychological suspense in which a private adoption's dark consequences play out years later, at an elite prep school in the Berkshires.

    "Crass Language"
    Overall

    This book was loaded with crass/vulgar language that I found it to be distracting. If you can get past that, the actual story was somewhat good. I enjoyed the characters and I really enjoyed the last quarter of the book when it turned into more of a thriller.

    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.

    bebe says: "a book that can be heard/read again and again"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    The narrator was simply perfect on this one. Her voice was just beautiful to listen to. I'll be looking for other books that she's narrated next. The story was great, too. The only slight problem I had with the plot was when an incredible coincidence occurred towards the end of the book. It just wasn't believable to me. I still rate this audiobook 5 stars.

    Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Literature, Margaret Mitchell's great novel of the South is one of the most popular books ever written. Within six months of its publication in 1936, Gone With the Wind had sold a million copies. To date, it has been translated into 25 languages, and more than 28 million copies have been sold. Here are the characters that have become symbols of passion and desire....

    "Not the best narration choice for Scarlett"
    Overall

    I'm finding it a bit difficult to deal with the narration on this one. Scarlett sounds like a 50 year old woman instead of a 16 year old girl. The narrator does a fine job on the male characters that I've encountered so far. I'm trodding through though and hope that I can overlook that for the rest of the book. I loved GWTW when I first read it as a teen and I'll be curious to see if I still love it this time around.

  • The Graveyard Book

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "Who was this book written for??"
    Overall

    The beginning was far to dark and scary for my 4 younger children (ages 2-9) but the rest of the book was too bland for my 12 year old or myself. It was like Dean Koontz wrote a few sections in a Casper the Friendly Ghost book. I think it would have been a fine children's story if it omitted the details about the murders in the beginning. Do kids really need to visualize where the bodies were? And the section about the indigo man was pretty dark for middle readers, IMHO.

  • A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Maxine Fuentes says: "Wonderful"
    "Thought Provoking"
    Overall

    I don't think I've ever read a book with as interesting a character as Owen Meany. Not sure how I missed this book in my young adult life when I had gazillion hours to read. I'm thankful that it was brought to audiobook format because I otherwise might have missed it totally. So many topics were covered....religion, romance (sorta), war & literature. I was tickled at the references to some of the books I have read recently, like Tess of D'Auberville, & it made me want to read other books mentioned....which I think is pretty admirable.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    This book was tortuous for me to get through. Way too verbose. Just not my thing.
