Erik Maria Bark, retired hypnotist, is called in to work with Josef Ek, a fifteen-year-old boy who witnessed the brutal murder of his family.Following a series of accusations by his patients, Erik is reluctant to return to his craft but makes an exception for Joseph Ek

    Story

    I loved the voice chosen for Joona Linna - just for that I might re-listen to some of the book. On the other hand, I failed to really connect with the story. Somehow it felt clinical and dispassionate to me. Maybe it is because the point of view of the narration is not clearly defined, which leaves me floating while reading it. There are books the capture and engage my imagination. Where I get attached to the characters and hope the story never ends, this did unfortunately not happen with the Hypnotist. Especially the long description of Eriks sessions with hist mental patients felt rather long.

    Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life - and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow Series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere. Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go.

    Story

    Since I liked Elenor & Park a lot, I went straight to the next Rainbow Rowell book. The recently released Fangirl. What a wonderful love story. Rainbow Rowell wields an effortless power over words and characters. I became a Fangirl-fan after only a few minutes, the story has a great flow and is extremely addictive without being overly dramatic. No villains, no death, no great deception, not a lot of crying and all the same. I grew so attached to Cather and all her friends. I would have loved for the story to never end.

    The Narration by Rebecca Lowman is perfect. Her voices are distinctive without being overacted. Five Stars. Maxwell Caufield is a bit over the top for my taste, but since he is only reading the Simon Snow Excerpts at the beginning of the chapters, it was sort of funny.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story

    I liked listening to the book, I enjoyed Julia Whelan's renditions of the different characters. I got the impression, that Nora Roberts loves all her characters dearly, so much so, that she can not get herself to let really bad stuff happen to them. Which is comforting to know ... there is good in the world ...
