    Stone Barrington is called to Bel-Air to oversee an exclusive event that will gather the top echelons of the beau monde: Hollywood starlets, socialites, politicos, billionaires from overseas. It’s a task in which Stone has a personal stake, and one that is made all the more pleasurable - though somewhat more complicated - with the arrivals of two beautiful women with whom he’s intimately acquainted. But the grand occasion has also attracted a dangerous criminal group with sinister plans....

    Would you listen to Severe Clear again? Why?

    I have twice already.


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

    Yes. Stone Barrington is who every man would like to be.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Stuart Woods brought many of his characters together from his past books. I was worried that this might have been his last because of this. I certainly hope not. I love Mr Woods's work. Especially when Holly Barker and Stone Barrington get together in a book. Magnificent!

    This classic tale is a fantastical fable of two dear friends - one of whom goes astray and is literally lost to the north woods, while the other undertakes an epic journey to rescue him. This charming, strange, and wonderful story is a timeless allegory about growing up and the challenges of staying true to one's self, and it served as the wintry inspiration for the blockbuster hit Frozen.

    A little archaic to follow and a bit whimsical. All in all an entertaining classic fable. Very well performed with feeling.

    Jonathan Safran Foer's best-selling debut novel, Everything Is Illuminated, wowed critics on its way to winning several literary prizes, including Book of the Year honors from the Los Angeles Times. It has been published in 24 countries and will soon be a major motion picture. Foer's talent continues to shine in this sometimes hilarious and always heartfelt follow-up.

    When I started this read, I thought it was going to be a waste of time. But I persisted and found that it was one of the best books I have listened to. It evoked many different emotions through out the story. It came together at the end in a satisfying conclusion. All in all I would recommend this to anyone looking for an emotional read.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    If you could sum up The Art of Racing in the Rain in three words, what would they be?

    I felt the dog!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Denny was my favorite because he never gave up and always loved freely!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Eve's father fed Enzo the peprocinni the second time.


    If you could take any character from The Art of Racing in the Rain out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Eve because she was so likable.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was a real tear jerker so be prepared. I believe the author captured the very essence of any dogs demeanor. I could actually see any dog I have known trying to think like Enzo did in the book.
