    An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: A mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him. When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story was great- just as good as any other books by this author. The narrator sucked! Her speech patterns were distracting, she drew out vowels way too long. I was irritated throughout the whole book but the story kept me listening. Worst part was the sample was read by a different narrator, he reads very small parts throughout the whole book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story line. The ending was a good surprise. Don't want to be a spoiler.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It felt like she was trying to draw it out too long. The funny thing was when she was reading dialog it picked up.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour, and wit. Maybe Adrian was more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story didn't get to the point- ending was a odd, it wasn't plausible.


    What could Julian Barnes have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    told a better story


    Could you see The Sense of an Ending being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Tim says: "True Blood PG13"
    "Can't wait for the sequel!!!"
    Overall

    I totally loved the book. I loved the mix of witches and vampires and demons. The historical discovery was interesting as well. The only problem is it didn't really end- I can't wait for the sequel to see where it goes!

    Marion and Shiva Stone are twin brothers born of a secret union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother's death in childbirth and their father's disappearance, bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution. Yet it will be love, not politics - their passion for the same woman - that will tear them apart.

    Mary Lynn says: "Brilliant story, pitch perfect narration"
    "The Best Book I've Ever Listened To"
    Overall

    This is the best book I've ever listened to. The story drew me in from the opening paragraph. I found myself stalling what I was doing so I could keep listening. I listed to all 20+ hours in three days! The reader is perfect, the story is perfect and I love saying "Addis Ababa". I feel like I've been there!
