    For 18 years, Jude Farraday has put her children’s needs above her own, and it shows - her twins, Mia and Zach, are bright and happy teenagers. When Lexi Baill moves into their small, close-knit community, no one is more welcoming than Jude. Lexi, a former foster child with a dark past, quickly becomes Mia’s best friend. Then Zach falls in love with Lexi and the three become inseparable. Jude does everything to keep her kids on track for college and out of harm’s way. It has always been easy - until senior year of high school. Suddenly she is at a loss.

    I think Kristin Hannah's books can be a little sappy, but I really enjoyed this one, and was sorry when it ended. The narrator does a fantastic job, which always helps, too!

    You don't have to look very hard at Drew Silver to see that mistakes have been made. His fleeting fame as the drummer for is nearly a decade behind him. He lives in an apartment building filled almost exclusively with divorced men like him, and makes a living playing in wedding bands. And his Princeton-bound teenage daughter, Casey, has just confided in him that she's pregnant - because Silver is the one she cares least about letting down. So when he learns that his heart requires emergency surgery, Silver makes the radical decision to refuse the operation, choosing instead to use what time he has left to repair his relationship with Casey.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was horrible. He has the voice of an old man, yet the character is early 40's. He reads this with way too much inflection. It just doesn't go along with what is being said.


    Would you recommend One Last Thing Before I Go to your friends? Why or why not?

    I kept wondering whether I might have liked this book if I had read it, or if there was a different narrator. Hard to tell. The story was not that great. I love Tropper, but this was very sub-par.

    When hunky teenage hockey player Joe Andreson and his widowed mother move to Minneapolis, Joe falls under the seductive spell of Kristi Casey, Ole Bull High's libidinous head cheerleader. Joe balances Kristi's lustful manipulation with the down-to-earth companionship of his smart, platonic girlfriend, Darva. But it is Kristi who will prove to be a temptation (and torment) throughout Joe's life.

    Amber says: "Great writer... not so interesting plot"
    "One of Landvik's Best"
    Overall

    I am a huge Lorna Landvik fan, and this was one of my favorites. She is such a great writer, and I found myself wishing this story would keep going on and on.

    Joe Goffman was fifteen years out from his sleepy hometown when he wrote Bush Falls, a searing critique of its people and institutions. The book was a runaway best seller, and led to an even more successful movie. Now, however, Joe's got a problem. His father has suffered a stroke, and that means that Joe has to go back to his birthplace after having successfully antagonized every person living there. Can Joe survive the reservoirs of hatred that have been waiting to pour down upon him? Just maybe.

    FanB14 says: "Sarcasm Reigns Supreme"
    "Loved It!"
    Overall

    I thought this book was very interesting. Loved the characters and the storyline. An easy listen. Couldn't help but notice the resemblence to ABC's "October Road."

    When we meet septuagenarian Margaret Hughes, she is living alone in a mansion in Seattle with only a massive collection of valuable antiques for company. Enter Wanda Schultz, a young woman with a broken heart who has come to Seattle to search for her wayward boyfriend. Both women are guarding dark secrets and have spent many years building up protective armor against the outside world.

    Barbara says: "Wonderful story of mending and redemption"
    "Absolutely Horrible"
    Overall

    I am abandoning this book with about 4 hours to go. I have never done that before. This book makes no sense, is disjointed, and is generally just boring.

    Meet Rose and Ruby: sisters, best friends, confidantes, and conjoined twins. Since their birth, Rose and Ruby Darlen have been known simply as "the girls". They make friends, fall in love, have jobs, love their parents, and follow their dreams. But the Darlens are special. Now nearing their 30th birthday, they are history's oldest craniopagus twins, joined at the head by a pot the size of a bread plate.

    Barbara says: "Terrific material, great presentation:"
    "A great book"
    Overall

    I was a little hesitant to buy this title - the subject matter seemed a little weird. But this was a great book, about the lives of two women. The author is a great writer, and the story really heartwarming. Highly recommend!
