    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story
    Would you listen to Wild again? Why?

    I not only would listen to this story again, but I will listen to it again. Wild is a moving and refreshing story of a woman's obstacles in maturing into the woman she wants to be. She struggles through the PCT with a backpack of baggage on her back and in her heart. This is a must read even if you don't like Oprah's picks. I read this before I knew Oprah had chosen it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cheryl Strayed was my favorite character and how perfect her name is for a woman who seemingly strayed off the path of her goals and dreams.


    What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was good. She did a good job with pacing and vocalizing. She is no Susan Ericksen, but it was a plesant voice.


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

    The trials and obstacles Cheryl faced often made me shake my head and laugh because I could see myself making some of the same mistakes.

    Deadlock, V. I. Warshawski’s second case, involves the huge Great Lakes shipping industry. Once again the subject is murder - this time the “accidental death” of Boom-Boom Warshawski, an ex-hockey star and V. I.’s beloved cousin, who fell - or was pushed - off a rain-slicked pier on Chicago’s busy waterfront. Convinced that Boom-Boom was in fact killed because of information he had uncovered about criminal doings on the shipping lines, V. I. begins a long and frustrating search for her cousin’s murderer.

    Jaime says: "Loving V.I."

    I would listen to Deadlock again because it is a well written mystery, but mostly because it is narrated by Susan Ericksen.

    It was a very well developed plot.

    The resolution was my favorite part of the book
