    If you could sum up And the Mountains Echoed in three words, what would they be?

    Poetic
    Layered
    Compelling


    Would you recommend And the Mountains Echoed to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but I would recommend LISTENING to it as I think the author's voice, plus the 2 others lend a veracity and gave me connections to characters I might not have gained by reading it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The narration of Uncle Nabi's relationship to Suleyman Whadati (his letter to Pari)


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

    no, it's best enjoyed in a leisurely way, the way you enjoy poetry or music

    From an early age, Kate and her identical twin sister, Violet, knew that they were unlike everyone else. Kate and Vi were born with peculiar "senses" - innate psychic abilities concerning future events and other people’s secrets. Though Vi embraced her visions, Kate did her best to hide them. Now, years later, their different paths have led them both back to their hometown of St. Louis. Vi has pursued an eccentric career as a psychic medium, while Kate, a devoted wife and mother, has settled down in the suburbs to raise her two young children. But when a minor earthquake hits in the middle of the night, the normal life Kate has always wished for begins to shift.

    Erica says: "Too many minor details and not enough story."

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

    I have only ever listened to Curtis Sittenfeld's books but have found them all amazingly entertaining as audio books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sisterland?

    When Kate acknowledges her lust for the neighbor.


    Which character – as performed by Rebecca Lowman – was your favorite?

    I thought she did a great job with the male voices and Jeremy was portrayed perfectly.


    Who was the most memorable character of Sisterland and why?

    Kate, without a doubt. I love characters that I can sometimes be really angry at, yet feel sympathy for and she did that many times over.

  • The Husband's Secret

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    If you could sum up The Husband's Secret in three words, what would they be?

    compelling
    realistic
    un-put-downable


    What other book might you compare The Husband's Secret to and why?

    I would compare it to the first book of hers I read: What Alice Forgot, because it has similar themes of marriage, trust and real-life situations.
    But her style reminds me of Kingsolver in many ways, and Margaret Atwood.


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

    No, but I am sure I will.


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

    Tess....mainly because she emerged as my favorite of all of them (and to get Connor's phone number)


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended listen. I have read What Alice Forgot but plan to purchase it in audible now to listen to it read to me in the proper accent.

    Though he battled for seven years to marry her, Henry is disenchanted with Anne Boleyn. She has failed to give him a son and her sharp intelligence and audacious will alienate his old friends and the noble families of England. When the discarded Katherine dies in exile from the court, Anne stands starkly exposed, the focus of gossip and malice. At a word from Henry, Thomas Cromwell is ready to bring her down.

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

    Thomas Cromwell, a renaissance man? If you are in any way interested in this period of history (Henry Tudor, his wives and his political advisors) you MUST listen to Simon Vance bring Master Secretary Cromwell to life....along with Henry himself, Anne Bolyen, Thomas Moore and all the other major characters in this amazing, real life saga.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bring Up the Bodies?

    The way Mr. Vance was able to make me see Thomas Cromwell as a human being, not the self-serving politician he has always been presented as through history and fiction. Every moment he spoke as Cromwell I felt even more sympahty for him.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    pretty much everything, even his portrayals of women


    If you could take any character from Bring Up the Bodies out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would give anything for Master Secretary Cromwell to invite me over for a glass of wine and a chat about intrigue.
