  • The Story of Chicago May

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 48 mins)
    • By Nuala O'Faolain
    • Narrated By Terry Donnelly

    Award-winning memoirist and New York Times best-selling author Nuala O'Faolain branches into new territory with her biography of the infamous Irish-American prostitute and thief Chicago May. O'Faolain uses May's autobiography, primary sources from the turn of the 19th century, and her own experience as an Irishwoman to bring May and all her heartache, deception, and violence to life.

    "Dull narration"

    Could be a better read if the narration wasn't so monotone. I'm really trying to get through this. The story is good but probably better to read than listen to.

  • Freedom: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (24 hrs and 14 mins)
    • By Jonathan Franzen
    • Narrated By David LeDoux
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    Lawrence says: "Believe the Hype"

    Has to be the worst I've ever tried to get through. I endured the first part of the book and not far into the second part I decided enough was too much. Every character is more disfunctional than the last and reading about a guy spending his college time jerking off isn't my idea of a good read. Call me a square but if that's what you want to read about buy the book. Had I known ahead of time I wouldn't have wasted my credits on such garbage. I can't even give this one star but I had to just to give this book a review; that's how bad it is.

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 43 mins)
    • By Audrey Niffenegger
    • Narrated By Fred Berman, Phoebe Strole

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"

    This book was a test of endurance for me to finish it. Way too much skipping and hopping back and forth in the story. I can't even imagine someone thought it would even make a good movie. Don't waste your credits on this one- I almost feel like I should be due a credit back for this poor choice.
