    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    What did you love best about The Fellowship of the Ring?

    With all of the songs, everyone I know says they skipped over them while reading TLOTR. I enjoy them performed by the reader. There's also info in the songs that you miss if you skip them.
    This is the absolute best way to experience the music of Middle Earth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gandalf.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you try another book from Gillian Flynn and/or Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    Probably nothing by the author. I'd give the narrators a shot. They did their work well.


    What could Gillian Flynn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I know that the world is full of horrible people. I know that this book reflects that. This is just not what I enjoy, vindictive, selfish characters that never seem to have any redeeming value.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

    The lady cop. I can't remember her name. She's the only one who seemed likable. Margo, Nick's sister was ok, but she was snarky and mean in her own way. She was loyal, though.


    Any additional comments?

    I know art demands a reaction. I guess if that is what the author wants, she got it. But to go for a bad reaction just for reaction's sake seems cheap to me. I just really disliked the book. It never got better, either. I kept expecting some sort of turn that would redeem ... something. I would recommend not reading this. Some people loved it. Not me.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fault in Our Stars to be better than the print version?

    Audio is the only way I read this particular book, so I'm biased, but I LOVED the narrator's performance.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Hazel Grace is a treasure.


    Any additional comments?

    I truly loved this book. Yeah, you'll cry. But there is too much life in this book to be ignored. Brilliantly written, brilliantly narrated, just that good.

    England, 1959: Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    Would you listen to The Secret Keeper again? Why?

    Absolutely.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    I think Jerry, the brother. He was so interesting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not laugh or cry, but I did think about it and what the characters were up to when I wasn't listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book that gives you glimpses of the past, and the tale of the unwinding mystery kept me hooked until the end.
