    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Overall

    Great narration, great(er) story. I hope the author writes more, my only disappointment was in finishing this one and finding out this is the only book she has listed. I've been a audible member for 3 years and this is my favorite book so far. (I missed a lot of subway announcements, train stops, beggars, thieves, and co-workers due to my inability to pull out my headphones ).

    What does a megasuccess like Al Franken - best selling author, Emmy-award winning television star, and honorary Ph.D. - have to say to ordinary people like you? Well, as Dr. Al himself says, "There's no point in getting advice from hopeless failures." Filled with wisdom, observations, and practical tips you can put to work right away, this is a cradle-to-grave guide to living, an easy-to-follow user's manual for human existence.

    Eric says: "You either have a sense of humor or ..."
    "Holy Moley! Al Franken is Funny"
    Overall

    I was surprised that this book doesn't have an aggregate rating of at least 4 out of 5 stars. Don't let humorless reviewers sway opinion.
