    It all starts when Nick asks Norah to be his girlfriend for five minutes. He only needs five minutes to avoid his ex-girlfriend, who's just walked in to his band's show. With a new guy. And then, with one kiss, Nick and Norah are off on an adventure set against the backdrop of New York City - and smack in the middle of all the joy, anxiety, confusion, and excitement of a first date.

    This is a terrific audiobook. Immensely better than the movie that came out recently. The alternating viewpoints by chapter keeps the listener hooked.

    Story
    (531)

    When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Richard Ames is thrown headfirst into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history.

    Christopher says: "Great book, presentation was disappointing"
    "Terribly disappointing"
    Overall

    I love most of Heinlein's work. This was the rare exception. The book started off interesting enough, then about a third of the way into it, the flavor completely changes. It went off in a direction that was both dumb and frustrating. The ending especially was disappointing. Try another of his works instead.

  • Catch Me If You Can

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 36 mins)

    Story
    (966)

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    Steve says: "Really entertaining!"
    "Hundred times better than the movie"
    Overall

    I picked this book out after seeing the movie. While I enjoyed the film, it in no way does the story justice. The real life adventure is simply amazing. It's hard to believe anyone was able to pull off the stunts Abagnale did, let alone before they were 21! The only down side was that the story's ending left a lot to be desired. I won't give anything away, but it left me wanting to know more.
