    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I used to watch the Carol Burnett Show when I was a kid in the mid to late 1970's. Most shows don't age well, but when I see clips today, it is just as funny now as it was then. Hearing Carol Burnett tell stories about her life and what was going on in the background of her show is almost as funny as the show itself. I definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys a laugh--whether or not they watched her show(s) when they aired. Oh, and I cried in places, too.


    What about Carol Burnett’s performance did you like?

    Delivered as only Carol Burnett could do. Thank you for giving us this extra time together!


    Any additional comments?

    Each story is short, so it's a good listen for even short commutes.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat waiting to find out who the mystery man is, and what is his motivation. I was surprised by the answer--I didn't see that coming.

    Acclaimed author L.M. Montgomery continues the story of Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea in Anne's House of Dreams.

    The narrator does a really good job on all of the characters.
    The story was better than "Anne of Windy Poplars" and as good as the more widely known first three books in the series.

    She has a kind voice, reads with a great deal of feeling, and does a good job doing different voices.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

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

    Tina Fey brings her personality to the performance (and SNL clip). I looked forward to the drive into the office just so that I could hear more. Thank you for making me laugh.


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

    I laughed out loud frequently.

    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a great book! As a first-time parent of an adopted toddler, I had little lead-up time to prepare, and this book helped sort through the mixed messages with which various forms of media bombard the general public. Without the time to sift through the peer reviewed research myself, it was hard to separate those pieces of advice that are based in strong evidence, from those asserted by very vocal people who have never bothered to research the questions they answer. John Medina did the work -- I won't say that he's smart, but I will say that he worked very hard. I thank him for that priceless advice (and I'm pretty sure he's smart, too).


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

    Entertainment value.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed this novel. I skipped needed sleep to find out what happens next. I really cared about the characters and their goals. However, the ending was really disappointing--it was a lazy ending. It's almost as if the manuscript deadline was looming, so the end was thrown together.


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

    Sure, but there are not that many hours in a day--literally.


    Any additional comments?

    I rounded my overall rating up to a 5.

    Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch had it all. But now he's back in his own rough, tough past without even the clothes he was standing up in when the lightning struck.

    Terry A. Austin says: "Another brilliant Pratchett"
    "5 star book, but poor quality audio"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book, except that the audio is poor quality. Books I've had on CD are far better in that regard. I listen in the car, so the background noise makes the poorer sound quality important (and rather irritating).
