    It all started 30 years ago with a chance purchase of The Escoffier Cookbook, an unlikely and daunting introduction for the beginner. But Conroy was more than up to the task. He set out with unwavering determination to learn the basics of French cooking, stocks and dough, and moved swiftly on to veal demi-glace and pâte brisée.

    Sue says: "Wonderful!!"
    "Interesting but wanted more"
    Overall

    Picked up some good hints to use, but thought it was more like a long short story

    On a sunny day in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, eight-year-old Becca Burke was struck by lightning. No one believed her - not her philandering father or her drunk, love-sick mother - not even when her watch kept losing time and a spooky halo of light appeared overhead in photographs. Becca was struck again when she was sixteen. She survived, but over time she would learn that outsmarting lightning was the least of her concerns.

    I loved the way she brought all the characters together. I reaaly hated the book to end, I felt like they had become friends.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Reality Check"
    Overall

    We are so very fortunate in the US. To hear how women are treated and not respected was a bitter dose. Compelling and well written.

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Patrick says: "Just an Incredible Story!"
    "Tremendous"
    Overall

    I loved every minute of "Open"
    I always enjoyed routing for Andre during the good times and the bad.
    The descriptions of the matches I felt like I was watching them all over.
    BRAVO!

  • The Friday Night Knitting Club

    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    flimfrik says: "Wanted to like it but constantly disappointed."
    "So enjoyed this book"
    Overall

    Loved how the characters developed. Always a good sign when I don't want a book to end.

    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!"
    "Touching"
    Overall

    Quite an insightful look at life of privledged and their domestic help. I thought it was wonderful, I laughed and cried, could not wait to listen each day and was sad when it was coming to an end.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    I loved this book. I could not wait to get back to listening to it when I went to work and when it was getting close to the end, I hated that it was coming to an end,
