    Tepper enjoys sitting in his car, reading his newspaper in peace. His car always seems to be parked in a prime spot and other drivers want to know if Tepper is going out. He isn't. This drives some people crazy - including the mayor - but leads others to think Tepper harbors some hidden wisdom. The tale that emerges is "refreshing and completely likable."

    Overall

    After reading all the reviews touting how humorous this book was, I must admit, I'm quite disappointed. I didn't "laugh out loud" or even giggle. I equate this book to reading a human interest story in the newspaper; you read it, for a moment think,"hmm okay interesting" then you move on. The ending left me wondering "that's it?" Though the descriptions of the city area are quite good and whisked me away to NYC, they do not make up for the weak storyline. Perhaps this is a book you should read only when you are circling the West Side looking for a parking spot.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "A GEM!"
    Overall

    This was one of those books you were sorry had ended. Though a little hard to follow at times, the book takes something so fantastic and makes it completely believable. The character development was excellent and I was drawn into the characters by their descriptive emotions. I'm recommending this book to all my friends. LOVED IT!

    Story

    In a memoir hailed for its searing candor and wit, Alice Sebold (The Lovely Bones) reveals how her life was utterly transformed when, as an 18-year-old college freshman, she was brutally raped and beaten in a park near campus. "A rueful, razor-sharp memoir," raves Vogue, "funnier than you'd think was possible. Sebold tells what it's like to go through a particular kind of nightmare in order to tell what it's like - slowly, boldly, triumphantly - to heal."

    Samantha says: "Very raw"
    "An okay read"
    Overall

    An okay read, not an overall outstanding book, nothing I would gush to others about. Though it deals with a personal matter in the author's life I think the it was a poor choice to have her narrate the audio book. The author's voice is a little monotonous and after lengths of time, annoying. So much so that it overshadows the great storyline. Unless the audio book is released with a different narrator, my suggestion is this is a book to pick up at the bookstore and save your audible credit for something better, my suggestion being The Time Traveler's Wife.
