    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Great Story!"
    Overall

    I read the first two books in this trilogy and so when I listened to this one I found all the different characters a little hard to follow but the story was so enthralling that it didn't matter!

    Adam March is a self-made “Master of the Universe.” He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting—until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called.

    What disappointed you about One Good Dog?

    I was not disappointed in the least by this story--excellent story without all the graphic detail that could have been included. I'm very grateful it wasn't because it wasn't needed and would have taken away from the message of the story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I love Sophie Kinsella and I want something a bit lighter so I'm going with one of her books!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Nothing could have been improved upon.


    What character would you cut from One Good Dog?

    Can't think of one.

    Larry Ott and Silas “32” Jones were unlikely boyhood friends. Larry was the child of lower middle-class white parents, Silas the son of a poor, single, black mother - their worlds as different as night and day. Yet a special bond developed between them in Chabot, Mississippi. But within a few years, tragedy struck. In high school, a girl who lived up the road from Larry had gone to the drive-in movie with him and nobody had seen her again.

    Ann says: "Excellent story, terrific narrator."
    "Riveting!"
    Overall

    I loved the reader and the story! Tom Franklin wove a wondrous story of friendship, coming-of-age, and murder.

    Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused, tried, and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts. Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful, openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live. Often at odds with one another, mother and daughter are forced to stand together against the escalating hysteria of the trials.

    Darice says: "What is Love?"
    "Haunting!"
    Overall

    This was a dark but enlightening book about the witch trials in Mass. The narration was very good and the author told a fascinating story.

    Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect - she’s lovely, charming, and a successful real estate agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up in her present condition....

    "Fabulous story and reader!"
    Overall

    I love all of Fannie Flagg's stories and this was no exception. She reads her own stories so well that you wouldn't ever want someone else to read them! This book is funny, entertaining and sad in parts...a great read!

    (1876)

    Returning to the territory he so brilliantly explored in his masterful New York Times best seller American Gods, the incomparable Neil Gaiman offers up a work of dazzling ingenuity, a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth that is at once startling, terrifying, exhilarating, and fiercely funny, a true wonder of a novel that confirms Stephen King's glowing assessment of the author as "a treasure house of story, and we are lucky to have him."

    A. Hawley says: "Beautifully narrated"
    "Magical book"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite books and now it's one of my favorite audible books. Lenny Henry does a fabulous job of portraying the characters and you come away thinking the world is truly a magical place.
