    When a novel like Huckleberry Finn or The Yearling comes along, it defies customary adjectives because of the intensity of the response it evokes in the reader. Such a tale is Old Yeller; to listen to this eloquently simply story of a boy and his dog in the Texas hill country is an unforgettable and deeply moving experience.

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

    Yes, it's one of the classics....you have to read (or listen to Old Yeller at least once)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Old Yeller?

    (Spoiler alert) My son says... "when the dog dies, you definitely don't forget that"


    Which character – as performed by Peter Francis James – was your favorite?

    Travis


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    "It made me cry"...per the son. I say if you read this book and don't cry there is something seriously wrong with you.

    My son says he would have liked it better if there was a happier ending.

    Fans of The Twilight Saga will be enthralled by this riveting story of Bree Tanner, a character first introduced in Eclipse, and the darker side of the newborn vampire world she inhabits. In another irresistible combination of danger, mystery, and romance, Stephenie Meyer tells the devastating story of Bree and the newborn army as they prepare to close in on Bella Swan and the Cullens, following their encounter to an unforgettable conclusion.

    Great background story to go along with the Twilight Saga. Took me a while to listen to because I didn't think anything was going to hold up to the Saga.....but Stephanie did not disappoint.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadness, that I wasted 6 hours of my life before I finally decided I didn't want to hear anymore.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Catching Fire to be better than the print version?

    No, but more convenient for commuting. The narrator does a great job, but for me audio books supplement print rather than replace.


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

    One of my favorite narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    Exceptional series, marketed as a YA book, but I really enjoyed reading it with my kids 22, 20 and 12. Lots of good conversation starters in this series.
