    Story
    (75)

    With a sharp eye for comic detail and a wicked ear for the absurdities of life, Dawn French shows just how an RAF girl from the west country with dreams of becoming a ballerina/bridesmaid/thief rose to become one of the best-loved comedy actresses of our time.

    Pamela says: "If you like Dawn French - You will love this book!"
    "Interesting and sometimes mildly amusing"

    What made the experience of listening to Dear Fatty the most enjoyable?

    The very endearing relationship between Dawn and her closest family and friends are so touching at times it reminds you of the true value of relationships


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

    I have never heard Liza before and often had to remind myself that it was Dawn herself reading the book as her voice is so like Dawn's.


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

    The very touching and personal moments between Dawn and her father did make me cry as it reminds me so much of my own relationship with my father - how very special.

    On Christmas Eve in 1985, a hunter found a young boy's body along an icy corn field in Nebraska. The residents of Chester, Nebraska, buried him as "Little Boy Blue", unclaimed and unidentified-- until a phone call from Ohio two years later led authorities to Eli Stutzman, the boy's father.Eli Stutzman, the son of an Amish bishop, was by all appearances a dedicated farmer and family man in the country's strictest religious sect.

    Eagle's says: "YUK, Don't waste your time or your money!!"
    "Discription not acurate Horrible story"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Abandoned Prayers?

    Far too much detail about the male sexuality, when I really wanted to know more about the boys family, upbringing and personal situation.


    What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

    Her was easy enough to listen to

    Not worth the money I paid

    Welcome to the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe, where the confections are a bit on the... unusual side. Rock candy that makes you weightless. Jawbreakers that make you unbreakable. Chocolate balls that make you a master of disguise. Four young friends - Nate, Summer, Trevor, and Pigeon - meet the grandmotherly Mrs. White, owner of the Sweet Tooth, and soon learn about the magical side effects of her candies.

    D.R. says: "Entertaining for grade schoolers and their parents"
    "Great family entertainment"

    A gripping memoir from Amanda Knox's Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, chronicling his relationship with Amanda and the four years they spent in an Italian prison for a crime they did not commit.

    Story
    Where does Honor Bound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Honor Bound is very definitely ranked up there as one of the most riveting, well written and emotional accounts I have ever heard. It is the top of my list for both style and presentation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I take the time to carefully select the non-fiction text in which to fill my personal down time - this is such an emotional account of such a shocking ordeal that all I can say is thank you Raffaele for your bravery in sharing it with those who care to listen.


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

    Seth Numrich's reading of the book was highly commendable, with a solid pace, clear diction and outstanding emotional balance which came across so well that I had to remind myself that this was not Raffaelle himself speaking to me in person. Extremely well done.


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

    It was all so moving that it would be extremely hard to select one particular moment.
