    New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

    Story

    This book was not what I was expecting. The characters were well developed and took on a life of their own but blended in the story well.

    I read the reviews about this book but was not expecting what the real story was about. I do not give out spoilers for books because I think it really spoils the plot for some readers. The thing I have to say you have to hear this book and be shocked like most people were when the book was done.

    The narration was great and you always knew who the chapter was about or from who's view point the story was being told from.

    The story was interesting and good at the same time. I would recommend this book to all my friends.

    I was looking at this book for a while trying to decide if I was going to buy it or not. I am very glad I did purchase it. It was a book that kept you hanging on to the very end.

    It was well narrated and the story line was awesome. I may have to look for more books by this author. I would recommend this book to any who likes books like this.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    If you could sum up 11-22-63 in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining, unbelievable, great


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    The whole book was great. I am an avid fan of Stephen King so it is hard to pick out one moment I liked the most.


    Which character – as performed by Craig Wasson – was your favorite?

    Craig Wasson is a great narrator. He is great at doing different voices and carry them through the whole book. This is my first book with him narrating it and I am very impressed. I will have to look for more books where he is the narrator.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is way to long but I did listen to for a few hours at one sitting. The novel is about 1000 pages so the audio book will be a long one.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the book before I purchased the audio book and both were exciting to read. I like the audio book because I can listen to it while I am working. It is very entertaining.

    There's a place along Interstate 50 that some call the loneliest place on Earth. It's known as Desperation, Nevada. It's not a very nice place to live. It's an even worse place to die. Let the battle against evil begin.

    Where does Desperation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of best books I have listened to. Kathy Bates does a great job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I do not have one favorite character. I just like Stephen King's books. He is an amazing writer


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

    I have not but this may be something I may have to look into.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listen as long as I can and pick up where I left off. When I am done, I will just start another books.

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Where does Steve Jobs rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I thought the book was very informative. It seemed to tell it like it is. No one is perfect but it is nice to find out that the people higher up are just regular people also. I have seen documentaries on Steve Jobs and the book coincides with what was said in the documentaries.

    The book was clearly read and was easy to follow.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a very long book and is not something I would listen to for long periods of time. When I downloaded the file to my Kindle Fire it was divided into 3 parts. I listened to each part at a different sitting.
