    What did you like best about In Search of Cleo? What did you like least?

    The best parts were her experiences in the back alleys of LA. I think she probably took some creative liberties with the characters but they were unique and their tales were interesting. I liked the musical interludes.


    Would you recommend In Search of Cleo to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure, especially to my cat friends. Like the headline says, it's a fun read. I listened during my daily two hour commute and it kept my mind off the traffic.


    Did Gina Gershon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She's a good narrator and she brought the characters out with her interpretations.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not.

    (568)

    After a whirlwind romance and a honeymoon in Italy, the innocent young heroine and the dashing Maxim de Winter return to his country estate, Manderley. But the unsettling memory of Rebecca, the first Mrs. de Winter, still lingers within. The timid bride must overcome her husband's oppressive silences and the sullen history of the sinister housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, to confront the emotional horrors of the past.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I never read the book but always wanted to. I thought listening to it would be satisfying but I feel that I might have missed out by not reading it in my voice. I have a habit of underlining passages in books that uniquely describe a mood, character, or location. I wish I had the book so I could do that with Rebecca. I think I'm going to buy it so I can read it for myself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Maxim's sister. I did not like Maxim, at least I didn't like the way the narrator portrayed him. He was a pompous ass and it didn't get any better after he unloaded his tale about Rebecca. I think reading it I would have felt a little more sympathy for him. I was also waiting for the second Mrs. de Winter to get a spine. I really got tired of listening to her musings on what might happen.


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

    She did a great job with most of the characters. I just didn't like her portrayal of Maxim.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Well, of course! That's how I first heard about the book. Alfred Hitchcock mastered the re-telling of this tale.

  • Odd Thomas

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 33 mins)

    Story
    (1597)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Odd Thomas to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Odd Thomas?

    The ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many. The scenes with his parents gave his character so much depth. I look forward to hearing more from Little Ozzie. I pretty much liked every scene where he interacted with the dead.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have a two hour commute every day and joined Audible to make the trips more tolerable. Most books I keep in the car and don't feel the desire to keep listening at home. This was one of the books that I brought inside and listened to while I cooked, cleaned or just vegged out.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. My 15-year old niece liked it just as much as I did. It's not a deep book. Semi-light fare and fantastic for driving. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book.
