    Supposedly there was a time, long ago when dating was simple. Rules were in place and long-held standards of courtship ensured that everyone knew what was expected of them and, more importantly, what to expect...Following an alcohol-induced, relationship-combusting one-night stand, Isabelle Beckett finds herself suddenly single.

    Overall

    This was a light fluffy fun book and I enjoyed it a lot. This is the kind of book you pick up for a good laugh & a smile. The main character, Isabel isn't your typical chick lit socialite. She's an ordinary woman who tries to be sophisticated but somehow always ends up in the most hilariously awkward situations. Isabel's exaggerated imagination and colorful humor make the book a delight to listen to. The book is well worth the credit. I thoroughly recommend it for someone who's looking for a book that's a good laugh & loads of fun. This was money well spent.

    It’s all she’s ever wanted to be, but it couldn’t be further from her grasp…Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides she’s had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect.

    Overall

    I really wanted to like this audiobook. I liked the story and it was very fun and enjoyable for the most part but I really disliked the narrator's deadpan/monotone voice while she was reading. The narrator sounds a bit too old for this book. I think we need someone who sounds a bit younger and less monotone.

    The dangerous, fanatical Imperial Order, under the leadership of the power-mad Emperor Jagang and his multitude of demonic underlings, unleashes a deadly plague. To find a cure, Richard Cypher and his beloved Kahlan Amnell must seek out the legendary Temple of the Winds, a fortress of evil sealed away for three thousand years. But the path of the Seeker of Truth is never an easy one - even if he can reach the Temple at all, there is no guarantee he'll ever return.

    Danielle says: "Good book, poor narration"
    "Don't Waste Your Money"
    Overall

    The narrative is flat and unimaginative. The author repeats the plot line to the reader more often then the names of the main characters. It's as though the author feels that the listener/reader is SO dense that they need the plot repeated six times every three pages. Not to mention the character development is null and void. The novel is mainly told through Kahlan's point of view which is unexpected but tolerable at first, but after the first half an hour I grew tired of her endless devotion to Richard; which she states about five times every chance she gets a bit of dialogue. Furthermore most of the "feministic" women seem to spend a lot of time serving or proclaiming their devotion to Richard. And the narrator seems to add onto this by giving each female character a whiny and pleading voice. In summary, don't waste your money.
