    In her best-selling debut, Commencement, J. Courtney Sullivan explored the complicated and contradictory landscape of female friendship. Now, in her highly anticipated second novel, Sullivan takes us into even richer territory. For the Kellehers, Maine is a place where children run in packs, showers are taken outdoors, and old Irish songs are sung around a piano. By turns wickedly funny and achingly sad, Maine unveils the sibling rivalry, alcoholism, social climbing, and Catholic guilt at the center of one family, along with the abiding, often irrational love that keeps them coming back....

    Story

    A delightful look at a dysfunctional Irish American family. The characters are interesting and often amusing. I did not like the abrupt ending of the book and felt it was not consistent with the flow of the book. I was disappointed, and it seemed like a weak ending to a strong story line.

    "My life is over," Piper DeWitt thinks to herself, awaiting departure in the overcrowded International Terminal of the Philadelphia airport for an overseas business trip, to romantic Paris no less. She watched as her husband, Tosh, put his own suitcase into the trunk of a taxi the day before.

    G. House Sr. says: "Short story dud! Save the credit."
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I have read all of Jennifer Weiner's books, and have enjoyed them. I was looking forward to listening to this one, but was terribly disappointed. It was too short, and seemed to be a quick book that was written for a deadline. It read more like a magazine story than a book. Too much money for too little content

    Story

    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Michael says: "Outstanding"
    "A delightful listen"
    Overall

    I am not sure I would have enjoyed the book quite as much if I had read it rather than listened to it. Alison Larkin added so much to her characters in her narration that it was an very engaging book for listening. With the addition of the English accent, southern and New Jersey accents listening was a rich experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I do not usually write reviews, but this was a great book to listen to.
