    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    In a quiet seaside town near Genoa, experts gather for a linguistics conference. One speaker, Philipp Perlmann, is recently widowed and, struggling to contend with his grief, is unable to write his keynote address. As the hour approaches, an increasingly desperate Perlmann decides to plagiarize the work of Leskov, a Russian colleague who cannot attend, and pass it off as his own.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and did do to all my reading, book loving friends. If I could rate only 1 book five stars I would be torn between this book and Watership Down.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Perlmann's Silence?

    The psychological transformation of a brilliant mind as it slowly dissolves with seer and utter panic. He allowed fear to ruin him and spiral him from genius to primal nut. In other words he drove himself insane.

    My favorite part was When he was driving the car and trying to remember his murder plans, while is victim was so loving and friendly. His victim only had Perlmanns interest in mind as Perlmann was trying to remember how and why to kill him.


    Which character – as performed by Mel Foster – was your favorite?

    Narration was awesome. Played all parts well.


    If you could take any character from Perlmann's Silence out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Well I did love Perlmann But i'm not sure I want to be friends with him.


    Any additional comments?

    This novel is very complex and muti-layered. The detail with which his thoughts are tormenting him and consuming him was sheer genius.

    The dusty files of a venerable dictionary publisher, a hidden cache of coded clues, a story written by a phantom author, an unsolved murder in a gritty urban park: all collide memorably in Emily Arsenault's magnificent debut, at once a teasing literary puzzle, an ingenious suspense novel, and an exploration of definitions: of words, of who we are, and of the stories we choose to define us.

    Ed says: "Enjoyable Book with Great Characters"

    Would you try another book from Emily Arsenault and/or the narrators?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Arsenault again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Reads like a seventh grader with a foul mouth and absolutely no point to tell. No one in a professional and degreed environment would be allowed to speak like that. Not to mention the story was pointless and didn't need to be told.

    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Michael says: "Outstanding"
    "Best Book I ever listened to"
    Overall

    OH My goodness this book was GREAT. I almost didn't complete it, as I misunderstood where it was going. I am so happy that I did.
