    Story

    "Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

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

    This book deals with Love and how society, and a controlling government deals with Love. We follow a 17 year old girl through her final year in high school, waiting for 'the procedure', her evaluation and finding love and other obstacles that challenge her perception and concept of what the future holds for her.

    Sit down, hold on, and enjoy the ride.


    What other book might you compare Delirium to and why?

    If you like Catnis in Catching Fire, you might like Lena. The characters are similar, even though the stories are different.


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

    I can believe that Sarah is Lena, her voice carries like that of a teenager. I feel as if Sarah carries me through the story, I can see what she is talking about, I can hear the feeling in her voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it took me 3 days to complete the book


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book 2

    Story
    (423)

    During an intimate dinner party, a cat burglar breaks into the home of A-list actor Marcus Dowling. When his wife walks in on the thief, the situation quickly teeters out of control, leaving an empty safe and a lifeless body.

    Suzn F says: "Really Good Storyline"
    "predictable and forgetable"
    Overall

    I love this series of books by Patterson and his co-authors, yet this book gives the feel that it was a rush to publish. The characters were too predictable leaving nothing to the imagination. To me, the book came across as being written over the weekend and not over agonizing months for character development. You may consider killing off the main characters to save face with your fans.

    A truck crashes and spills its dangerous cargo on a treacherous road in the Italian Dolomite mountains. Meanwhile, in Santa Lucia, a prominent international lawyer is found dead aboard an intercity train. Suspecting a connection between the two tragedies, Commissario Guido Brunetti digs deep for an answer, stumbling upon a seedy Venetian bar that holds the key to a crime network that reaches far beyond the laguna.

    Overall

    Love the narration of this book, you can see the streets of Venice and Padua as the story is read. The book itself was well done, I was immersed in the story from the start. There is murder, human trafficking and stolen innocence. Step into the pages of Northern Italy for a short while.
