    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    This was my first time reading a John Green book, and I can see why he's such a popular author. I immediately fell in love with the two main characters, Hazel and Augustus, flaws and all. They're young, brave, witty, and wise. It's a pleasure to spend your days with them.

    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?

    This book is well written, but it's hard to care about characters who suck so much as people. I had to force myself to listen to the whole thing.

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    We are excited to present our members with a gift that is truly unique: an original essay, available exclusively here at Audible, written and voiced by best-selling author – and fellow listener – Ann Patchett. This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage is a very real love story, and one that is much more about the journey than the destination.

    At Westish College, a small school on the shore of Lake Michigan, baseball star Henry Skrimshander seems destined for big league stardom. But when a routine throw goes disastrously off course, the fates of five people are upended.

    Story

    This book is very well written, but by the end, I found myself wishing it would just be over already. The characters are fully realized, but the plot is thin. If you're a baseball fan, you'll probably love it. If you're not a baseball fan, there is still plenty of relationship drama to sink your teeth into. This is a book about sexuality and self-discovery.

    For more than a century, the small town of Haddan, Massachusetts, has been divided, as if by a line drawn down the center of Main Street, separating those born and bred in the village from those who attend the prestigious Haddan School. But one October night, an inexplicable death thrusts the two worlds together, and the town's divided history is revealed in all its complexity.

    Kimberly says: "The narration speed was horrible !"

    The beginning was interesting, but overall it felt prose-heavy and plot-light. It meandered.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Twilight is a fun listen. It can be a little plodding in parts, but overall, just an entertaining and light-hearted read. Decent narration and the only book I've listened to so far in my spare time (other than while commuting, that is). Enjoy!

    On what might become one of the most significant days in her husband's presidency, Alice Blackwell considers the strange and unlikely path that has led her to the White House and the repercussions of a life lived, as she puts it, "almost in opposition to itself."

    "Great Writer"
    Overall

    Curtis Sittenfeld is an extremely talented writer. There is an honesty and an accessibility to her writing that is rare and delightful. The last section of the book was light on plot, but still enjoyable. Overall, I totally recommend. Don't worry about the politics of it. It's a story about people.

    Jessica Darling is living the New York City dream, until her on-again/off-again boyfriend asks her to marry him. She now has a choice: abandon the life of late-night literary soirees, art openings, and downtown drunken karaoke to move back to New Jersey and be with the one man who's gripped her heart for years, or stick around and freelance for the obscure journal that can't even put a dent in her student loans.

    Rachel says: "Not as good as the previous book in the series"
    "I used to love this series"
    Overall

    There's not much of a plot in this book. I found my mind wandering. It felt like a lot of aimless (and slightly bratty) chatter. Maybe I've just grown out of this series. I still like Megan McCafferty, but this book (at least as an audio selection) wasn't much fun.
