    Duncan Peck has a fascination for randomness and is always taking his family on the move. His wife, Justine, is a fortune teller who can't remember the past. Her grandfather, Daniel, longs to find the brother who walked out of his life in 1912, with nothing more than a fiddle in his hand. All three are taking journeys that lead back to the family's deepest roots... to a place where rebellion and acceptance have the haunting power to merge into one.

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

    No. Because I disliked the reader so much.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Searching for Caleb?

    The moment I decided to I stop listening about 1/3 way through. Anne Tyler is one of my favorite authors and have either read or listened to most f her books. It takes a special reader to do justice to Tyler's books and this Angele Masters just read to darned fast..


    Would you be willing to try another one of Angele Masters’s performances?

    NO!


    Was Searching for Caleb worth the listening time?

    No, because I couldn't even finish it. I know I will get a lot more out of this book if I read it myself.


    Any additional comments?

    Readers make the story.

    Rescue offers riveting stories about what happens when things go terribly wrong in some of the world's most perilous places: Himalayan peaks, African plains, vast oceans, remote Arctic wilderness. The result is a collection of first-rate prose read by masterful narrators that makes for compulsive listening.

    The whole thing! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Edited by Dorcas S. Miller and Clint Willis again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance could have been better if the stories were better. The audio was nothing like the synopsis stated.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    As I said: I want my money back.
