    Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn't recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else's. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return.

    Story
    What would have made Shadow Woman better?

    Felt like the story was the sex with a semi interesting story wrapped around it. Would have liked the story a lot more if the characters were better developed. The story was pretty predictable and the surprises were meh. The ending was laughable. This book does not make me want to read or listen to anything else by this author.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Carrington MacDuffie?

    The narrator was pretty good so I would not hesitate to listen to another book with MacDuffle as the author.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed in the book.

    Has Off to Be the Wizard turned you off from other books in this genre?

    for a while anyway


    Any additional comments?

    I've not read that much fantasy so I thought I would try this. I just couldn't get into the story.

    This novel by Carl Hiaasen, author of Tourist Season and Native Tongue, begins as most thrillers do, with a killing. But this is no everyday, hum-drum, garden variety killing. Our hero, Nick Stranahan, a 42-year-old private investigator who has killed five men and been married five times, skewers his attacker's aorta with the razor-sharp bill of a stuffed marlin.

    What did you like best about Skin Tight? What did you like least?

    A bit quirky but it was a pretty good book. It kept me interested through to the end.


    Would you recommend Skin Tight to your friends? Why or why not?

    If someone asked for an easy read that kept interest I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    China, 1957: Chairman Mao has declared a new openness in society. “Let a hundred flowers bloom; let a hundred schools of thought contend.” Many intellectuals fear it is only a trick, and Kai Ying’s husband, Sheng, a teacher, has promised not to jeopardize their safety or that of their young son, Tao. But one July morning, just before his sixth birthday, Tao watches helplessly as Sheng is dragged away for writing a letter criticizing the Communist Party and sent to a labor camp for “reeducation”. Once again, Tsukiyama brings us a powerfully moving story of ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances with grace and courage.

    Kathleen says: "Excellent book about China revolution."

    I love learning about different cultures. The story was interesting and while every detail may not be historically accurate it gave me a better understanding of how people dealt with the cultural revolution in China. I loved the different characters.

    When Elizabeth Endicott arrives in Syria, she has a diploma from Mount Holyoke College, a crash course in nursing, and only the most basic grasp of the Armenian language.

There, Elizabeth becomes friendly with Armen, a young Armenian engineer who has already lost his wife and infant daughter. When Armen leaves Aleppo to join the British Army in Egypt, he begins to write Elizabeth letters....

    Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does, even down to how he butters his toast. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning the mail arrives, and within the stack is a letter addressed to Harold from a woman he hasn't seen or heard from in 20 years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. Harold pens a quick reply and, leaving Maureen to her chores, heads to the corner mailbox. But then Harold has a chance encounter, one that convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person.

    I know I really like a book when I finish it and I miss the characters. This book fell into that category for me. It was a very enjoyable listen.
