    Arthur is the only man who can share Lauren's secret, the only one who can see her, hear her, and talk to her when no one else so much as senses her presence. So when doctors prepare to end Lauren's physical care, which would destroy the magical bond she and Arthur cherish, he must find a way to save her. For, after all, it is only her love that can save him.

    I downloaded this book before viewing the movie. The two are considerably different. The book is entertaining, and the narrator has an intense voice. This intensity is not necessary, but doesn't detract from the book.

    Mirabelle, the "shopgirl" behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus, is slightly lost, off-kilter, and shy. But there's something about Mirabelle. Steve Martin reads this charming novella. Hear an interview with the author and browse more Martin.

    Julie Rosenthal says: "Loved it"
    "Steve Martin Has A Dark Side"
    Overall

    This was a dark, but well written novella. The main character, Mirabelle, leads a sad and lonely life that is punctuated with bad relationships. Martin really hones in on the dark motivations of the men in Mirabelle's life. Martin's celebrity, however, leaves you wondering if he is merely transcribing his own fantasies - leaving the listener a bit unsettled in their perception of this comedic actor.

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    Lydia says: "Another winner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips"
    "Not the author's best"
    Overall

    This book was too contrived. The main love interest seems like he is straight out of a Harlequin romance novel and the exchanges between him and the main character were over the top. I selected this book after listening to Match Me If You Can - another by the same author. I would recommend skipping this one and listening to Match Me If You Can.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Howard says: "You won't be able to stop the player"
    "I loved this book"
    Overall

    This narrator is excellent, and the book is one of the best I have read in a long time. It is by no means a serious piece of literature, but it is entertaining, and if you have ever worked for a tyrant, you will be able to relate.

  • The Red Tent

    Passionate, earthy, deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable contribution to modern fiction: a vibrant new perspective of female life in the age that shaped present day civilization and values.

    If you like The Red Tent, try The Harlot by the Side of the Road, a recounting of some of the most startling and explicit writings from The Old Testament.

    R. S. Herron says: "The key word is 'fiction'"
    "Interesting Historical Fiction"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this audiobook. It provides an interesting perspective on historical events. The book is credible and well-narrated. You may find it a bit long, but power through and you will find the main character endearing. If you are not into women's literature or women's studies, this book is not for you.

    On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she has no idea what to do next.

    Susan says: "Agonizing"
    "Narrator does this book a disservice"
    Overall

    Everyone Worth Knowing starts out slow, but becomes entertaining after the first half hour. Unfortunately, the narrator's voice is scratchy and her inflection is overdone. Don't expect this audiobook to live up to its predecessor, the Devil Wears Prada.
