    Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family; she called herself an "excitement addict."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Glass Castle to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, to hear the story from the author herself was wonderful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Glass Castle?

    When the mother praises Jeannette, aged 3 for getting "back on the horse" and making hot dogs again after being hospitalized for being badly burned.


    Which character – as performed by Jeannette Walls – was your favorite?

    herself

    John Ceepak and Danny Boyle return with the hunt for a long-dormant serial killer who might be ready to strike again. An innocent discovery on the beach in Sea Haven pits Ceepak against a killer with a code just as rigid as his own. When the killer targets his next victim, the consequences becomes dire for Ceepak and Boyle. This is a game they must win.

    Super combination of performance and story, the narrator has a great way of showcasing the humor and irony in this story.

    A rookie paramedic pulls a young woman alive from her totaled car, a first rescue that begins a lifelong tangle of love and wreckage. Sheila Arsenault is a gorgeous enigma--streetwise and tough-talking, with haunted eyes, fierce desires, and a never-look-back determination. Peter Webster, as straight an arrow as they come, falls for her instantly and entirely. Soon Sheila and Peter are embroiled in an intense love affair, married, and parents to a baby daughter.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator was simply horrible. The story might have been engaging enough but the narration was flat, and the cadence was annoying. Lots of times when his voice dropped off and I thought it was because my phone was about to ring.


    Has Rescue turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Quite possibly, unfortunately, this was my first Shreve.

  • The Sociopath Next Door

    (1630)

    We are accustomed to think of sociopaths as violent criminals, but in The Sociopath Next Door, Harvard psychologist Martha Stout reveals that a shocking 4 percent of ordinary people, one in 25, has an often undetected mental disorder, the chief symptom of which is that that person possesses no conscience. He or she has no ability whatsoever to feel shame, guilt, or remorse. One in 25 everyday Americans, therefore, is secretly a sociopath.
