    Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform “Hallelujah” at a dark East Village dive bar. Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs—as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls’ school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant—in order to help support her husband’s dream of making it in the music world.

    Cathy says: "Another great Weisberger novel"
    "Sophmoric rock & roll fantasy"
    Overall

    Ultimately this was a boring and juvenile story of quasi over-priviledged people living out their fantasies. The question is: "would anyone REALLY care about these people?" The answer is most definately NO. The main character's (name already forgotten) continually whined over wanting to stay in a committed relationship while working professionally - while also dealing with her husbands newly discovered fun-filled career. Quick call the Disney people for that ever popular "happily ever after" ending. Mind numbing DRIBBLE!

    The dusty files of a venerable dictionary publisher, a hidden cache of coded clues, a story written by a phantom author, an unsolved murder in a gritty urban park: all collide memorably in Emily Arsenault's magnificent debut, at once a teasing literary puzzle, an ingenious suspense novel, and an exploration of definitions: of words, of who we are, and of the stories we choose to define us.

    Ed says: "Enjoyable Book with Great Characters"

    Overall

    One star is being generous with this title. I actually had to check back with Audible to see if this was an adult or childrens title. My 12 year old daughter reads and listens to more compelling literature than this. The narrators all had cloying voices that could only appeal to the "under 20 set" with life experiances in a similar range. Nothing was compelling, developed, or interesting. The dictionary - either in English, or any other language - would be a far more entertaining listen or read. Skip this at all costs!
