    Where does The Nightingale rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is now among one of my favorite books. It chronicles nearly every horror faced by the French during WWII. Told with poignant and moving prose, it nearly broke my heart at some points while also recounting the courage of the French women and men during the German occupation. The narrator is pitch-perfect portraying each character and their emotions. I am certain that listening to this book made it even more powerful than reading it. Thank you, Kristin Hannah, and may we learn from your story how important it is to treat our fellow humans with kindness and respect.

  • The Cuckoo's Calling

    Story
    (8250)

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Hoping for the next book"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cuckoo's Calling to be better than the print version?

    The performance was excellent. There is no way the print version could come close to the audio version. The narrator did an excellent job of distinguishing the characters with changes in his voice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development was well done and the plot was challenging. The main character had many layers and was a reminder of the old time detectives.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to books while driving and this was one of those books that I couldn't wait to turn on - it made me want to get up and drive to work. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • The Friday Night Knitting Club

    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    flimfrik says: "Wanted to like it but constantly disappointed."
    "Surprised"
    Overall

    The book kind of grew on me for the first 3/4 of the book - a "comfortable" read (listen) and no heavy action. But the ending was so wrong (not what happened but the way it happened) - and from a medical point of view - inaccurate. I just couldn't believe what I was hearing. That kind of ruined it for me.
