    Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love Jeffrey Archer and I loved the first Clifton novel. I was disappointed in the ending although I know there will be 3 more books. I feel that we've been treated like this is the end of a tv series for the season and they left you with a cliffhanger. I believe there could have been a more autonomous ending that would just make the reader look forward to the next book. Ken Follett wrote Fall Of Giants and had a satisfying ending although there will be 2 more books.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I believe this was a lazy ending


    What about Alex Jennings and Emilia Fox ’s performance did you like?

    The performances were great. I felt the characters.

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Ken Follet did exactly what he always does. He gives us a great story, great interaction of characters and a great history lesson. Can't wait for the next one.

    Here is Pat Conroy's powerful, captivating, and highly acclaimed best seller. He sweeps us into the turbulent world of four young men, friends, cadets, and bloodbrothers, and their days of hazing, heartbreak, pride, and betrayal. We go deeply into the heart of the novel's hero, Will McLean, a rebellious outsider with his own personal code of honor, who is battling into manhood the hard way.

    From mega-selling author Jodi Picoult comes an engrossing tale of medical morality and parental responsibility. Charlotte O'Keefe's daughter is born with osteogenesis imperfecta and will endure endless broken bones. Facing unthinkable medical costs, Charlotte considers a troubling solution. If she goes to court and says she would have terminated the pregnancy had she known of her daughter's condition, she might get enough money for a lifetime of medical expenses.

    From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

    This outrageously entertaining and bawdy roman à clef from reality TV star Bethenny Frankel follows a business-savvy, would-be actress in hot pursuit of the perfect man, the perfect job, and the perfect body. Burning through men like she burns through calories, our sexy, loud-mouthed heroine grasps at any opportunity that might take her to the top. Listeners will jump at the chance to hear about the thrilling highs and cringe-worthy lows of Bethenny’s first shaky steps into adulthood, told here in a fictional format.

    Genteel society ladies who compare notes on their husbands' suicides. A hilariously foul-mouthed black drag queen. A voodoo priestess who works her roots in the graveyard at midnight. A prominent antiques dealer who hangs a Nazi flag from his window to disrupt the shooting of a movie. And a redneck gigolo whose conquests describe him as a "walking streak of sex".

    Would you try another book from John Berendt and/or Jeff Woodman?

    I would not read another book by this author.


    Would you recommend Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil to your friends? Why or why not?

    The book held my interest but it didn't have too much of a story and I prefer books that move faster.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    He was great


    Did Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil inspire you to do anything?

    I was visiting Savannah anyway and that's why I read the book.

    Firefly Lane is the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the mainstay of their lives. For 30 years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship: jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they've survived it all, until a single act of betrayal tears them apart...and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.

    Firefly Lane will take you through generations and leaves you with a love for the characters. This book created a fantastic discussion and very passionate opinions. It is a love story that involves frienship and family.

    Innocent is the sequel to Presumed Innocent. You do not have to have read Presumed Innocent to read and enjoy this book. Scott Turow is a master of twists and turns. He can sprin a great tale and leave you with with an exciting story that you cannot anticipate.

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "House Rules"
    Overall

    I liked this book because Jodi Picoult didn't use it as a forum to judge mothers. She does this in many of her books. I liked the fact that the reader was able to see life in the point of view of the boy with Asbergers, his mom, brother, father, friends and acquaintances. I guessed the end quit easily, however, I was happy with in anyway. This book is a page turner.
