    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Michael says: "Outstanding"
    "Sweet semi-autobiographical story"
    Overall

    I think one of the things that really made this audiobook special was that the author narrated it herself. Being an semi-autobiographical story, hearing her emotions and speech pattern really made the story grab me.
    Additionally I found it a very intriging and enjoyable story. Poignant, yet comical this is really a lovely story about a young woman trying to find and understand herself.

    In lower Manhattan, a charnel pit of horror is uncovered: the remains of 36 people murdered and gruesomely dismembered over 130 years ago by an unknown serial killer. Just as a museum archaeologist and an enigmatic FBI agent begin to unravel the clues to the killings, a fresh spree of copy-cat murders and surgical mutilation erupts around them. Mixing science and terror in a way only they can, Preston and Child deliver a novel that's as gruesome as it is enthralling.

    Dianna says: "This Book is a True Curiosity!!"
    "Cannot abide abridged"
    Overall

    My biggest problem with this book was that it only available in abridged. Aside from that, this is one of their weaker books. I have read all of the "Pendergast" series, several others written by both, as well as 1 or 2 written by each individually. However this one just lacks something, which may have come form being abridged (I feel I need to read the book to make sure).
    Rene Auberjonois on the other hand does a wonderful job narrating. I really enjoyed his accents and candences in telling the story.

  • Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers: More Mad, Marvy Confessions of Georgia Nicholson

    No one captures the comical absurdity of teenage angst better than #1 New York Times best-selling author Louise Rennison. Her tales featuring the self-obsessed yet irresistibly lovable Georgia Nicholson are an international sensation and have been called Bridget Jones's Diary for teens.

    Latanya says: "Filled with Hilariosity and Vair Vair Amusant"
    "Mistake on my part"
    Overall

    I think I got confused ordering this, not realizing it was a series and this one was several into it. However I did find the narrator a little grating for the short I listened to it.

  • Sense and Sensibility

    Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen's first novel, is an entertaining tale of flirtation and folly that revolves around two sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. Elinor is thoughtful, considerate, and calm; Marianne is emotional and wildly romantic. Both are looking for a husband, but neither Elinor's reason nor Marianne's passion can lead them to happiness - as Marianne falls for an unscrupulous rascal and Elinor becomes attached to a man who's already engaged.

    Joseph says: "Interesting historically and literarily."
    "My favorite way to "read" the classics."
    Overall

    I find something soothing about the narrator of this audiobook. The experience was really wonderful. I am a bibliophile, but sometimes struggle to read the classics; having a reader like this makes the classics come alive for me.

    Finally out of the celebrity spotlight and away from her mother's demands, Cilla is free to do what she loves: fixing up houses for profit. Her current project is personal. The Shenandoah Valley farm house was once the vacation home of Hollywood luminary Janet Hardy, Cilla's grandmother. When Cilla uncovers a stash of her grandmother's private letters, and begins asking questions about the past, she becomes the target of a crazed killer.

    Jesse says: "With a Mystery thrown in"
    "Quintessential Nora Roberts"
    Overall

    I truly enjoyed this book. I adore her trilogies, and was hesitant to read a stand alone. However I was plesantly surpised. I enjoyed the characters, while the story was a trifle convaluted.

    While Marina's experiences at sea tell her she's in exactly the right place, her boyfriend wants her home in Vermont. And her distractingly cute Aussie boat mate couldn't disagree more. As the island heat rises, Marina must decide once and for all where her heart is - on land or at sea.

    I got this book in a hurry not realizing it was in Audible kids. However I oftenenjoy young adult books that are well written and fun. That describes this well. The story is fun and cute, although predictable. I really enjoy this narrator as well.
