    After a lucrative television writing career comes to an abrupt end, Ray Mitchell returns to the New Jersey city of his birth to rethink his life, reconnect with his daughter, and to spread the wealth on the housing project that reared him. Then, disaster: he is found beaten nearly to death in his own apartment. He knows who did it, but he's not talking. It is up to Detective Nerese Ammons - a childhood acquaintance from the projects - to discover who perpetrated this brutal assault.

    Diana says: "More than a crime story"

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "Don't Give Up"
    Overall

    It took me two tries before I really got into this book. It may have been the accent of the reader that threw me. However, once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. It was so interesting and I really loved the character development. I felt as if I was actually watching him grow up. I loved it!

    Henry Townsend, a black farmer, bootmaker, and former slave, has a fondness for Paradise Lost and an unusual mentor, William Robbins, perhaps the most powerful white man in antebellum Virginia's Manchester County. Under Robbins's tutelage, Henry becomes proprietor of his own plantation, as well as of his own slaves. When he dies, his widow Caldonia succumbs to profound grief, and things begin to fall apart.

    Rachel says: "wonderful and highly recommended"
    "I didn't get it"
    Overall

    I spent endless hours waiting for something for my interest to peak and it just never happened. I was really excited about this book and couldn't wait to hear it. However, it was so boring and uninteresting that I was left feeling cheated.

    When his wife dies in a fall from a tree in their backyard, linguist Paul Iverson is wild with despair. He abandons his everyday life to embark on a series of experiments designed to teach his dog Lorelei to communicate. Is this the project of a madman? Or does Lorelei really have something to tell him about the last afternoon of a woman he only thought he knew?

    Christopher says: "Back-story excellent, present story mediocre"
    "Very Unique"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. I found it suspensful and interesting. This was my very first book on tape and wow-what a way to start!

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    Phillip says: "Summer's Best Read"
    "Yippee!"
    Overall

    I have a very long commute and have turned to books on tape. I just loved this story! It was so fun to listen to that often I would find myself leaving early or sitting in the car once I got home.
