Springfield Mark

I have a dily commute of 35 - 45 minutes in heavy traffic. I find the commute is a lot more enjoyable if there is a good book to listen to.

  • Blue Smoke and Murder

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Elizabeth Lowell
    • Narrated By Carol Monda
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Jill Breck was just doing her job as a river guide when she saved the life of Lane Faroe, son of two of St. Kilda Consulting's premier operators. But when a string of ominous events - including a mysterious fire that kills her great-aunt and a furor in the Western art world raised by a dozen Breck family paintings - culminates in a threat to her life, Jill reluctantly calls in a favor.

    Springfield Mark says: "Sophmore Slump?"
    "Sophmore Slump?"

    Ms. Lowell needs to decide if she is writing fiction or an art history text book. She spends so much time on the history of Western American Art that she seems to have forgotten the plot.

    And her editor needs to understand that the readers can grasp growing sexual tension without repeating every other paragraph that the heroine found the hero's body "edible."

  • First Degree

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 40 mins)
    • By David Rosenfelt
    • Narrated By Grover Gardner

    When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expected is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wise-cracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block", the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I., Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life.

    A. Wright says: "Read series in order"
    "Andy Carpernter Strikes Again"
    If you could sum up First Degree in three words, what would they be?

    I love the Andy Carpenter books, and this one is one of the best.

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

    Gardner has a great sense of Carpenter's deprecative style. I love all the joke and wisecracks.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)
    • By Stephen King
    • Narrated By Craig Wasson

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Needs a better Narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    An otherswise wonderful story is ruined by Wasserman's naration. For some reason, Wasserman uses imitations instead of voices, so instead of hearing one of SK's characters you hear a poor imitation of John Wayne, Burt Lancaster or John Houseman.

  • Day of the Dead

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 33 mins)
    • By J.A. Jance
    • Narrated By Tim Jerome

    Brandon Walker, once the sheriff of Pima County, Arizona, no longer feels he has purpose. A reluctant retiree living in the long shadow of his wife, Diana Ladd, a successful author of true-crime books, he is bored with life. Salvation comes with an invitation to join The Last Chance, an exclusive fraternity of former cops and forensic experts who look into unsolved murders.

    Howard says: "Satisfying Read"
    "Do Not Get This Book!!"

    I have read all of the JA Jance JP Beaumont and Sheriff Brady books and liked everyone. This book, however, is unreadable (or rather, unlistenable). It is BORING! I listen as I drive to and from work and this book is a safety hazard, it tends to put me to sleep.
