    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Would you listen to Defending Jacob again? Why?

    I don't think I would listen to it again because some of the characters actions and lack of motives were frustrating


    What does Grover Gardner bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Andy Barber's growing panic and trying to hold it together.


    Who was the most memorable character of Defending Jacob and why?

    Jacob - cause you just don't have a clue


    Any additional comments?

    Some audio books I like to listen to with a hard copy nearby for referring back to previous passages. This was one of those books

    Somewhere in South America at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of Mr. Hosokawa, a powerful Japanese businessman. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening, until a band of terrorists breaks in, taking the entire party hostage.

    Brian says: "Surprisingly engrossing"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Did not like being told how it was going to end and then waited a long long time for the 2nd shoe to fall.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It should have been a shorter book


    Have you listened to any of Anna Fields???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, she is great as usual.


    Any additional comments?

    I did love the characters, flawed and quirky.
