    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."

    The pace (racing pun intended) is a bit uneven, but the book is, overall, wonderful if you're an animal lover. I'm not a race car fan but that's an integral part of the bond between man and dog.
    Kudos to the writer for juggling the happy-sad theme. Awesome ending.

    On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life.

    Story

    Another pre-teen love story with another unusual challenge. The Earth's rotation is slowing, and every living thing on the planet must adapt quickly or die.
    Walker focuses mainly on the relationship among characters, and the science receives an honorable mention here and there. Of course, what's happening to the Earth is affecting how everyone behaves (or misbehaves).
    I found the most interesting characters to be the adults, however, especially the relationship between granddaughter and grandfather.
    A decent listen, but mainly for young adult listeners.

    Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home....

    Story

    A book of backstory, and well told despite some slow spots, which occurs in all of her books. Her strength as a writer is a lot of detail; her weakness is a lot of detail.

    An "I didn't see this coming" ending.

    I rarely read a series, but this one was excellent.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    Story

    Well written and well portrayed by the narrator(s). Rarely do I lose track of time but I found it difficult to stop listening. I like that her recovery wasn't rushed and wasn't easy, but wish there was a more definitive ending. I presume the author didn't want complete closure.

    Edith Hahn was an outspoken young woman in Vienna when the Gestapo forced her into a ghetto and then into a slave labor camp. When she returned home months later, she knew she would become a hunted woman, so she went underground.

    Story

    I was tempted to stop listening at times. It's a common story for the time; I was looking a "specialness" that I didn't find. She was an educated woman and a judge. Impressive. Otherwise, it's an often-told story of a Jew passing as a gentile to ride out that awful period of history.
