    Three strangers who are trying to find their way in the wake of loss become entwined in an identity theft scheme, which has a resounding impact on them all. A gorgeously written psychological study, and a meditation on identity in the modern world, this is a literary novel with the haunting momentum of a thriller.

    What did you love best about Await Your Reply?

    What a unique story with so many twists/turns. Have to pay attention to the story lines - This book is not just a passive read

    Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.

    What didn’t you like about Fannie Flagg’s performance?

    Love Fannie Flagg as an author, but she really needs to hire a reader for the future. I would not download another audible with Fannie Flagg as a reader, she is not horrible but it is definitely an acquired taste.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story, just needed a different reader to make this amazing.

    Story

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

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

    I highly recommend this book - even though this is fiction, it is based around historical facts and concepts of the time. It displays the emotions behind true friendship and the hearts behind the first glance of those you meet. This book touches the soul


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Book Thief?

    Loved the 13 presents that she brought to Max


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

    This book made me laugh, cry and in general made me more conscience of how I treat others on a day to day basis.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What disappointed you about Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Terrible idea to spread the concept that it is acceptable to promote abuse of any kind - The female character was a nitwit and listening to this book via audio had to have been worse than actually reading it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E. L. James again?

    probably not - definitely not a romance novel


    Would you be willing to try another one of Becca Battoe’s performances?

    NO


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Ana
