    Story

    First of all, this is one of my most favorite Nancy Drew books so I was very excited to see it in audio form. I was not disappointed! The narrator, Laura Linney, is just perfect. Her tone of voice, the speed of her reading, the background music...it all made for a very entertaining and thrilling listen. I was able to vividly picture in my own mind everything that was being read to me. A definite must have!

    The Spice Girls Story is a unique personal audiobiogrpahy from this fantastically successful girl band. Spice Girls Melanie B, Geri, Emma, Victoria and Melanie C identified and caught a mood and wave of interest from young people who wanted to make a statement. The girls give a full account of their musical tastes and discuss their personal life, what motivates them and how they climbed the ladder of success.

    Story

    For the price, you get less than 20 minutes of what seems to be clips and pieces of interviews from the Spice Girls. It was somewhat enjoyable but there were several times when I thought I heard the same quotes being replayed. Oh well, I'm a huge Spice Girls fan, so I'm glad I gave it a listen. It's nothing spectacular, but hey, it's only 18 minutes of your life. Basically, listen to it if you're curious. If not, you haven't missed anything.

    Blue bells will be singing horses! This strange message, attached to the leg of a wounded homing pigeon, involves Nancy Drew in a dangerous mission. Somewhere an elderly woman is being held prisoner in a mansion. Nancy is determined to find and free Mrs Eldridge. While working on the case, the young detective's close friend, Helen Archer, begs her to solve a weird mystery.

    Story

    This is a very good Nancy Drew mystery story, but I have to say, the narrator, Danica Reese, just ruined it for me. She tried to give each character a different voice and it just made it hard to listen to because after a while, she would sometimes get confused with character voices or else I'd forget whose voice was whose. It was just distracting. And her tone of voice is not that convincing or engaging. It's a bit monotonous. Also, there is no background music to help engage the excitement of certain highlights in the story. It was very disappointing. I found myself wanting the story to be over. I'd much rather read the book than listen to this narrator.

    Story

    I have no complaints about the narrator, Laura Linney. She is a great reader and engages the audience very well. And the background music adds to the mystery and excitement. I only gave this 4 stars though because the storyline wasn't my favorite. It was catchy in the beginning, but as the case progressed, it became a little dull. Still, a good, entertaining way to spend 2+ hours of your time. I recommend it.

    Story

    This is one of those Nancy Drew books that I only read once so when I saw the audio version, I decided to give it a listen because I couldn't really remember the storyline or any other details. The narrator, Laura Linney, is just great (I wish she would narrate all of the ND books) so no complaints there. Unfortunately, though, the storyline of this book just didn't capture my attention very much. Perhaps it was because Bess & George were nowhere to be seen? Yes, I think that's probably what it was. I also had a bit of a harder time visualizing what was being read to me which is normally not the case with other Nancy Drew books. But go on, give it a listen...you might like it more than I did!

  • The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name Is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I'm a Love-aholic

    For any woman who has ever bought a self-help book and wondered why she bothered. (P.S. Now that I know he's just not that into me, where do I go from there? Yeah, thanks for that advice.) Jennifer Love Hewitt is a self-proclaimed "love-aholic" and hopeless romantic (her middle name is Love, after all!). She has been lucky and unlucky in love, and lived to tell about it---and she's done it all in the spotlight. Much has been written about her love life---some true, most made up to sell magazines.

    Overall

    I'm a huge fan of JLH but unfortunately the book didn't live up to my expectations. It was a bit superficial for me (for lack of a better term). I wasn't expecting a novel or anything, but some parts of the book just had me going like, "Uh, okay, yeah". What I did love, though, is JLH's sense of humor and the fact that she was the narrator. Her voice is just wonderful to listen to. Buy this if you're a JLH fan. If not, then, don't.
