    Would you consider the audio edition of Oath of Office to be better than the print version?

    Yes it might be. There were moments when I wanted to stop reading and I couldn't I credit the reader and the plot line. If I had been reading a print version it probably would have been easier to stop reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The wildness. I was completely unable to stop listening. The plot is very interesting however the pace is so contagious; the story just goes from thrill to thrill.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No; but I enjoyed him immensely.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A electrifying thrill you'll never finish eating your popcorn!


    Any additional comments?

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "Outstanding!"

    Would you listen to The Good House again? Why?

    This was an amazing book about self-examination and rebirth. The characters were so well crafted that I still thought about them well after finishing the book. I would definitely read this book again as is examines the life and trials of a sixty-something woman and I think my appreciation for the main character will only deepen with time.

    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Bill says: "Good. Not Great. But Virgil is Hard to Skip."
    "That Fabulous F****kin Flowers"

    Would you listen to Mad River again? Why?

    Yes. Great plot twists.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely, I kept trying to stay on step ahead of Virgil and the gang but...whew it was hard work.
