    The Dive from Clausen's Pier reminds us how fragile our lives are and how quickly they can be divided into before and after. It begins with a disaster that could happen in anybody's life, and leaves us asking what we know about our deepest allegiances.

    What made the experience of listening to The Dive from Clausen's Pier the most enjoyable?

    Very descriptive. Felt like I knew the characters, even if I didn't like them or what they were thinking.


    What does Scarlett Johansson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Left me feeling sad.

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

    I would recommend this book. Once you get past the very British accent for a very American book with very American characters, it is good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. I felt like I knew ths people after listening for a while. I had to know what happened to them!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Should have used an American accent!


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend all three in this series. By the end of this one, the British accent is tolerable. Still a bad choice for a narrator, in my opinion!

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story is typical, and unbelievable. I liked Orchid Beach, but this one didn't do it for me.


    Have you listened to any of Carrington Macduffie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator was good. The story... not so much.

    Daniel Hecht has created a plausible, heart-stopping ghost thriller. Relying on the science of parapsychology to spine-tingling effect, he brings to life a remarkably compelling character in Cree Black, as well as the ghosts she confronts.
