    Story
    (26)

    At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe - a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both survivors of difficult divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the U.S. government.

    Natasha says: "The Author Let us all down with this one -A WASTE!"
    "An honest, open hearted look at marriage"

    What did you love best about Committed?

    Elizabeth Gilbert feels like a friend now after listening to her read this book. I love how she argues both sides of the argument fairly, looking honesty at the issues she's concerned with.

  • A Clash of Kings (Part Two): Book 2 of A Song of Ice and Fire

    Story

    This is Part Two of Book 2 of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series. George R. R. Martin’s superb fantasy epic continues in consummate style as bloodshed and alchemy lay waste the Seven Kingdoms. This second volume of A Song of Ice and Fire is unabridged and split into two parts. The Iron Throne once united the Sunset Lands, but King Robert is dead, his widow is a traitor to his memory, and his surviving brothers are set on a path of war amongst themselves.

    "A good escape from reality"

    Story
    Where does A Clash of Kings (Part Two) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not the greatest but pretty good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it took me somewhere far away and kept me entertained.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator struggled to keep his accents consistent. To be fair he had a huge cast to keep up with.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was sometimes horrifying.


    Any additional comments?

    The characters lacked real depth in that the baddies were only evil and the goodies too good. But overall it was mindlessly entertaining and I enjoyed it.
