    1915. The dawn of the hydroelectric power era in Niagara Falls. Seventeen-year-old Bess Heath has led a sheltered existence as the youngest daughter of the director of the Niagara Power Company. After graduation day at her boarding school, she is impatient to return to her picturesque family home near Niagara Falls. But when she arrives, nothing is as she had left it.

    Overall

    I was drawn to this book. Following the main character's life, you almost get two stories. It isn't very exciting. I finished it, but I wasn't very emotionally tied to the book at all. Not the worst book I have listened to but not the best.

    Where does Dead Until Dark rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best audiobooks I have listened to. The lady that reads it really does a great job setting the stage of the story. I enjoyed it. I thought at first I was not going to get in to this vampire series. Before long, I wanted to get on to the next in the series. I found myself laughing out loud too.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Until Dark?

    I really liked it when Bill was talking to Sookie's grandma's club.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it a chance, you just might love it.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    What did you love best about Water for Elephants?

    I loved the perspective of the main character as an old man. The man performing him was magnificent. He will cross my mind a lot the rest of my life. He made me laugh and cry. It was great to hear how old age does affect our minds and our bodies.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Water for Elephants?

    When the modern day circus man lied for the old man and he got to stay on with the circus was my most memorable moment for Jacob.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to this. The men reading the parts were fantastic. The old man was grrrrrreat! He could not have been cast better. I didn't like the fact that the author focused on some of the circus experiences with certain circus women with such great detail. She could have lightened up on that just a bit. However, this is a really good listen!

    When Eddie was 12 years old, all he wanted for Christmas was a bike. Although his life had gotten harder - and money tighter - since his father died and the family bakery closed...Eddie dreamed that somehow his mother would find a way to have his dream bike gleaming beside their modest Christmas tree that magical morning. What he got from her instead was a sweater. "A stupid, handmade, ugly sweater" that young Eddie left in a crumpled ball in the corner of his room.

    Overall

    Glen did a great job telling the story. However, it was ok, but it was not that great. Some have compared this to The Shack. NO IT IS NOT. It is what it is. You might enjoy it more than me. I got very tired of a defiant sassy boy. I am glad I finished it but I was about to turn it off. I do not think I would recomment it to my friends.

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"

    Overall

    I LOVED IT! I would be laughing one minute and crying the next. Definitely a wonderful wonderful story. The young lady who narrarates this could not be better. She brings each character to life. I love this story. I will listen to this one several times. It is precious. A++++
