    Story
    (40)

    Chelsea Enright never expected to inherit her grandmother's lakeside cottage deep in the Adirondacks - a serene getaway that had been mysteriously closed up decades ago. This is no simple bequest, however, because when Chelsea finds her grandmother's World War II diaries, she's stunned to discover that they hold secrets she never suspected - and they have the power to turn her own life upside down.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator sounds prissy, and I can't get past it. The story might be better than the rating I gave it, but I don't know because the narration has ruined it for me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    It's Not Me, It's You


    What didn’t you like about Cassandra Campbell’s performance?

    She sounds really, really girly, and I can't take her seriously.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Maybe if I can force myself to get further into it.

  • Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 42 mins)

    In a compelling, story-driven narrative, the Heaths bring together decades of counterintuitive research in psychology, sociology, and other fields to shed new light on how we can effect transformative change. Switch shows that successful changes follow a pattern, a pattern you can use to make the changes that matter to you, whether your interest is in changing the world or changing your waistline.

    What made the experience of listening to Switch the most enjoyable?

    Very interesting, and applicable to the changes we want to make in life, personal and professional. Other reviews criticized the narration, but I found it to be fine.
