    When 19-year-old Fran married Bobby Benedetto, she never dreamed that she would find herself in an abusive relationship. Every time her New York City policeman husband hit her, she would think of convincing reasons to stay. Now, with her 10-year-old son in tow, she is running for her life.

    Overall

    This is a hard subject to read about (domestic violence) but this was a great story and getting to know the characters. Moments in the book when you thought they were going to be found made it more interesting. Recommend this book.

    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....

    Story

    I love books read by the author for me it really makes the story come to life. I enjoyed hearing about Tina's childhood and how she got to SNL and 30 rock. There are moments that are so funny and so true to life that you will get stares from people as you laugh out loud.

    Story

    Before Gabrielle Hamilton opened her acclaimed New York restaurant Prune, she spent twenty fierce, hard-living years trying to find purpose and meaning in her life. Above all she sought family, particularly the thrill and the magnificence of the one from her childhood that, in her adult years, eluded her. Hamilton’s ease and comfort in a kitchen were instilled in her at an early age when her parents hosted grand parties, often for more than one hundred friends and neighbors.

    loix says: "A sensory feast"
    "Don't need to like cooking to love this book"
    Overall

    I thought this book was very interesting, wonderful to hear about Gabrielle's slightly wacky upbringing and how she made her way into her current profession. I liked that she narrated the book I think that makes the story even better. Would recommend this book.

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Amazon Customer says: "Incredible"
    "Wonderful book and narrator"
    Overall

    Currently listening to this book and am dreading when it ends, it has been a joy to listen to. The narrator makes the book come to life and the story keeps you guessing. Definately recommend this one.

    It's 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. They both know that the next day, after college graduation, they must go their separate ways. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. As the years go by, Dex and Em begin to lead separate lives. And yet, unable to let go of that special something that grabbed onto them that first night, an extraordinary relationship develops between the two.

    Pamela J says: "Loved it but not everyone's cup of tea"
    "Amazing Book, even better narrator"
    Overall

    I loved this book, the characters and the story made me want to get in my car each morning for my commute to work. Some of the parts in the book and the narrator's great work bringing the book to life made me laugh out loud. I enjoyed the span of time from college to mid-life with all its twists and turns. This book I highly recommend and will be listening to this one again.
