    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Story

    The story is excellent and insightful. There is so much I did not know about Aspergers. The story is told through the eyes of Christophe Boone, a 15 year old who has Asperger's Syndrome. I was glued to the book until the very end. I highly recommend.
    The performance was excellent. One reviewer mentioned that the narrator had to much inflection in his voice. I totally disagree.

    Shaken by a scrape with death, big-city detective Joe Cashin is posted away from the homicide squad to the quiet town on the South Australian coast where he grew up. Carrying physical scars and not a little guilt, he spends his time playing the country cop, walking his dogs and thinking about how it all was before. But when a prominent local is attacked and left for dead in his own home, Cashin is thrust into what becomes a murder investigation.

    Broken shore started slow, but midway the pace picked up. I enjoyed the book and wish it would become a series. The only drawback was the narrator, but not his fault. I had a difficult time understanding him.

    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Where does Mistress of the Art of Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Art of Death ranks in my top ten which includes The Help, and Unbroken. It is a great story and has excellent narration.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did keep me on the edge of my seat...and I was wrong about who I thought the killer was. No way I would of guessed it correctly.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an excellent narrator. She did a superb job on all the character's voices. Her narration made the book come alive.


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

    Almost...it is such a long book. I would listen to it whenever I got in my car to go somewhere.


    Any additional comments?

    I am so saddened that the author, Diane Norman died last year. I just started the second book in the series-A Serpents Tale.

    Story

    This is one of my all time favorites. The second read was thru audible and I loved it just as much as the read. I rarely read books twice, but tempted by audible to llisten to the story.
    I am glad I did... I remember a story better when I listen to it.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"

    After several attempts to read this book I put it aside and said "forget it". I really wanted to read it. The book received great reviews and many friends highly recommended it. I decided to try the audio version. Wha-la! The narration was incredible. Kristoffer Tabori infused each character with such enthusiasm I finished this audio in no time at all. Bravo!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Marvelous"
    Overall

    This is perhaps one of the best books I have read in a very long time. The readers of the audiobook made it come alive. I felt like I was there in Ole Miss. I cant stop thinking about this book. It is so well written.
