    Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a 10 year-old girl, is arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.

    Benson says: "Important subject and plot, pedestrian execution"

    I usually only listen to my audio books while I am driving to and from work. This book was an exception. I had to listen in bed at night, in the morning before I would get up. I just couldn't put it down. Now I am done and I already miss having this story to listen to. Very engaging and very touching story, exceptionally well written!

    In the opening pages of Jamie Ford's stunning debut, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle's Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol.

    Christopher says: "Hotel on the corner of bitter and sweet"
    "Love, Love, Love IT!"
    Overall

    I have not finished this book yet, but I have loved it right from the start! You really care about the characters and you learn about the internment of the Japanese during WWII.

  • Roots: The Saga of an American Family

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A masterpiece like none other, Brooks’ powerful performance of Haley’s words has been known to leave listeners in tears. It begins with a birth in an African village in 1750, and ends two centuries later at a funeral in Arkansas. And in that time span, an unforgettable cast of men, women, and children come to life, many of them based on the people from Alex Haley's own family tree.

    Kevin says: "Powerful"
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    I watched the mini-series many years ago and I am thrilled to revisit these characters in the book. It is written well and read fanatastically! You'll spend many hours in the driveway waiting for one more chapter! I ordered the mini-series on DVD to watch again when I am done listening!

    Twelve-year-old Koby isn't like the other kids in her class. She lost her right foot in an accident four years ago, and she is keenly aware that her classmates don't know how to act around her. The only place she feels at home is in her small boat, where she can watch whales play in the ocean. When Koby discovers a stranded mother whale and her baby, she realizes that their survival depends on her ability to keep them breathing through the night. But she is alone, and help is nowhere in sight.

    This audio version is missing chapters 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19. I am very angry that I payed for a whole book at got the reader digest version.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Loved It!"
    Overall

    In the last three months I have listened to six audible books and this by far was my favorite! The reading is wonderful and makes the characters come to life. I miss all of them now that the book is over.
