  • Drowning Ruth

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 45 mins)

    Deftly written and emotionally powerful, Drowning Ruth is a stunning portrait of the ties that bind sisters together and the forces that tear them apart, of the dangers of keeping secrets and the explosive repercussions when they are exposed. A mesmerizing and achingly beautiful debut.

    Steven says: "Drowning Ruth"
    "Good choice"
    Overall

    I chose this novel because it was an Oprah pick, and it was unabridged (can't stand abridged versions and won't buy). I do have to say that this is a "Chick" novel, but having read other Oprah picks, I took a chance.
    I would recommend this for women listeners, and of course men who like a good plot. There is not a lot of action, but the strong foreshadowing by the author lends itself to the listening.
    Give it a chance, you won't be sorry.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    • UNABRIDGED (41 hrs and 22 mins)
    • By Robert Littell

    Story
    (2111)

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Well worth the time"
    Overall

    The month of December passed quickly as I lived this novel. I found myself sitting in my car to listen just a little bit more. I spent a lot of time driving in December which made this a great choice for my travel time.
    Although the number of discs required to burn this for listening is formidible, it is worth the time and investment. You should enjoy this. I am actually going to listen again as the plot is so complicated that I can get more the second time around.

  • Odd Thomas

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 33 mins)

    • Narrated By David Aaron Baker

    Story
    (1937)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "Excellent Listening and Captivating story"
    Overall

    I have read every Dean Koontz novel to date so I am a big fan. This novel is no dissapointment, his writing and plot development just get better. He vividly describes what is happening in the story, and the listener will easily share his visions. This is a must have for you audio collection.

  • Lost Light: Harry Bosch Series, Book 9

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    Harris says: "Dashel Hammet Redux"
    "Slow Start, Compelling Ending"
    Overall

    This is a great choice for those who like complex plots with realistic characters although the start is slow. After the first CD you are hooked.
