    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I didn't care for the storyline. I think it would have been or could have been more interesting but it just fell short for me. The description of the book lead me to believe it was going to be a certain story, and that is not what I got.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed. I didn't really get into the story until about 70% of the way through, when the "climax" seemed to be at full swing, and then it just kind of ended and left me feeling unsatisfied.


    Have you listened to any of Imogen Church’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    I don't know...I think for the big screen it could make a decent movie.

    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't have a favorite character. I enjoyed everyone, especially the essays about his dad.

    I enjoyed the dog days essay, but I didn't really have a favorite.

    Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    Where does My Life as a White Trash Zombie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is definitely one of the BEST audiobooks I have ever listened to.


    What other book might you compare My Life as a White Trash Zombie to and why?

    There isn't one you can really compare it with. It is so different and so refreshing. It is not your normal zombie book at all.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Angel. Angel is an awesome character, very snarky. I really enjoyed the funny joke : What did the zombie say to the whore?....Keep the tip"


    If you could take any character from My Life as a White Trash Zombie out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Angel for sure. She is fun, has a good sense of humor and makes light of her situation.

    Ten excited guests arrive at the Westlake Estate, expecting a lavish retreat. They are the winners of a sweepstakes to "Live Like a Billionaire for a Week." But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! I was sucked into this story. I told everyone I know who watches the show to GET THIS BOOK!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: Whodunnit??

    Every moment was memorable. From the very beginning. There were multiple "gasping" "OMG" moments with each murder.


    Have you listened to any of Gildart Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first performance of his. Though i watch the show and he is great on that. He was absolutely amazing for Giles. On TV and in the book. He really brought it to life and brought the thrill to the tale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Sadly I couldn't.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. It is different than most other books out there right now in the YA world. I would suggest it to people who are intrigued by books with some kind of monster in them, but this does not include a romantic twist (sorry if that is what you are looking for).


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was a little slow with most of the "climax" of the story being at the end. I like stories that have a slow build, followed by the climax, and then let it end...this ending seemed to drag on a while...a lot longer than was really necessary.


    What about Steven Boyer’s performance did you like?

    He can really make a creepy character even creepier!


    Was The Monstrumologist worth the listening time?

    Hit and miss. Sometimes I didn't want to listen to it, but some parts I couldn't stop listening to.

    Troy Billings, at six-foot-one, 296 pounds, is standing at the edge of a subway platform, seriously contemplating suicide, when he meets Curt MacCrae - and emaciated, semi-homeless punk guitar genius who also happens to be a dropout legend at Troy's high school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

    What made the experience of listening to Fat Kid Rules the World the most enjoyable?

    I thought Matthew Lillard brought this story to life. I could really believe the characters and the experiences and the thought process.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fat Kid Rules the World?

    The ending. To prevent spoilers, I won't give it away. But I liked how the story ended. Every path each character took, each growth, led to this pivotal moment.


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

    The life of the characters


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were multiple moments. There were moments I could laugh with Troy and moments my heart broke for him and for Curt.
