    Story
    (5798)

    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"
    "Constant use of the "F" word distracting"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More imaginative ways to flesh out the side characters.


    What was most disappointing about Robert Galbraith’s story?

    The constant use of the "F"word was annoying. I expected more of an author who was so creative and imaginative in her most famous books. The main characters were interesting and obviously set to play in a series, but all the side characters were boring. Swearing and crude language does not an adult book make.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    Donna M Thomas, Author of From Pebbles to Pathways says: "My favorite Reacher story yet"
    "Classic Reacher"

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

    I would recommend the audiobook. It has a plausible story line and enough hook to keep you wanting to continue.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Go Back?

    I loved the interaction with the Samantha Dayton character. I thought it was really funny that one of the bad guys in the book is named David Baldacci.

    Story
    (363)

    Thirty-five years old, fresh off the bus from New York City, and nursing a shattered heart, Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, she goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she’s simply moved on - her cabin is cleaned out and her things gone. Anna herself wakes up, trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of how she got into this situation. As she slowly pieces together her memory, it soon becomes clear that someone has trapped her there....

    "Should have been named "The Perils of Pigeon""

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There were too many impossible death defying situations for one story.


    Would you recommend The Rope to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it to fans of the Anna Pigeon series because it explains how she became a park ranger.


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her ability to bring the characters personality into her voice.


    Was The Rope worth the listening time?

    Yes
