    Story
    (2187)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Emily - Audible says: "Colin Firth Kills It"

    What did you love best about The End of the Affair?

    Colin Firth was the perfect narrator for this novel. He keeps you enthralled and attached to a character who is not always likable. And, of course, the writing is impecable.

  • Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes behind the Veil

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 58 mins)

    Story
    (119)

    Most Westerners working in Afghanistan spend their time tucked inside a military compound or embassy. Not Deborah Rodriguez. Here, she tells the story of the beauty school she founded in the middle of Kabul and of the vibrant women who were her students. When Rodriguez opened the Kabul Beauty School, she not only empowered her students with a new sense of autonomy but also made some of the closest friends of her life.

    Becky says: "Thumbs down"
    "Compelling women you care about"

    Story
    What did you love best about Kabul Beauty School?

    I thought this book was cleverly organized into stories about different women that the author met in conjunction with the beauty school. And the author herself is quite a character. I found myself compulsively listening to the book.


    What other book might you compare Kabul Beauty School to and why?

    In a way, it almost reminded me of "The Help," but this is non-fiction. It's all about women struggling through very difficult times and it tells many different stories.


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

    She has a nice rich voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wish more people would read this book as the US plans to leave Afghanistan and continues to negotiate with the Taliban.
