    I really enjoyed this book, it helped me to believe that is possible to balance work, motherhood and marriage. Moreover, the greatest teaching was the issue of potential to learn instead of previously experience.

    Story

    It’s not common I stop listening to a book before finishing it, if the book is not so great, I made a lot of effort to finish it. But this one was impossible, I couldn’t be involved and for me was a torture the time that I spent. In may opinion, the narrator in this book was terrible, all the times I imagined that he had a moustache that influenced his bad diction.

    Before purchasing this book, I was afraid that I wouldn’t like because some negative customers’ reviews. I highly recommend this book, it pulled me in from the very beginning. I loved all the characters involved and felt every emotion of the book. I would definitely recommend this book to others; it's worth the purchase or use of a credit.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, serving in the household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife. She may go out once a day to markets whose signs are now pictures because women are not allowed to read. She must pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, for in a time of declining birthrates her value lies in her fertility, and failure means exile to the dangerously polluted Colonies. Offred can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost even her own name....

    I made a tremendous effort to continue to listen until the end. For me it was a waste of time and credit, it’s not the kind of book that I like. I bought because the good reviews, but I thought very boring, monotonous and without great emotions. I have listened to hundreds books and my expectations were very high because the good reviews, I felt very disappointed.

    This was another amazing book from Jodi Picoult. I have listen to many and I liked all. I just finished it and I already feel empty without it, I’m having difficult to get starting another book that I bought. The narrator was wonderful, I have already listened to her from Susan Elizabeth Phillips’ books, she is great!!!! Julia Gibson is definitely in the top of my list! Sometimes, I couldn't wait to be able to listen more and found myself annoyed when life got in the way.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Fantastic! I was really hooked in the plot. I couldn't wait to be able to listen more and found myself annoyed when life got in the way. I found myself wanting to know what happens next the whole way through the book including right up to the very end. Overall, a great book and a moving story. Until this book, I hadn’t the opportunity to listen to any book from Ms. Picoult. Now, I want to read all of them!
