    After a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey is surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy. Bailey's search for his new life's meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a beloved family pet is not the end of Bailey's journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders, will he ever find his purpose?

    Overall

    As an animal lover and rescuer you have to love this book. Anyone who has ever wondered why dogs do the things they do and what they are thinking would appreciate this read. If you aren't a dog lover, don't bother with this as you will not get it or even care. All emotions are brought to the surface. Very enjoyable.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. It was too dragged out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by E L James again?

    Probably not.


    What didn’t you like about Becca Battoe’s performance?

    Too slowly read and monotone. Had to speed up to 1 1/2 times to get through it.


    Was Fifty Shades of Grey worth the listening time?

    No. I was happy to have other books to read and listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I was told by many reliable people to go with this book as they couldn't put it down. After the first third, I was bored and disappointed to have wasted my credit. I've known people like Mr. Gray and of the life style. I don't approve or disapprove. I just don't feel the need to live vicariously through someone else's sexual preferences.

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    If you could sum up Two for the Dough in three words, what would they be?

    fun, humorous, silly


    What did you like best about this story?

    It moved along quickly


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

    nothing extreme but I did laugh at times


    Any additional comments?

    Although I enjoy the Plum series, I don't know if I can read or listen to 19 of them. For me, although I love the sarcasm, she can be too silly.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    ""Unbroken" is unforgetable!"
    Overall

    Could not stop listenening to this story. What an amazing gentleman! I hope the movie industry does this book justice.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Loved it!!"
    Overall

    Highly recommend this for anyone. The narration is top notch and made this book that much more enjoyable. I'm hoping for a sequel to know what the future held for the characters.

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    Ed says: "Comic book tough guy"
    "painful to get through"
    Overall

    Dragged on and on. My first, and probably last, read from Lee Child. I was glad to have spent only $5.00.
