I have a CRAZY commute... Audiobooks help keep me sane. I love fiction with story lines that I can imagine happening today.

    Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Wow! I REALLY enjoyed this book. I listen to audible books to break up my long commute, and this is one of those books that makes you look very strange to the drivers around you. I was laughing out loud, and at other times talking back to the narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the few lines that Radar had. GREAT!!!


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was perfect for the story line. Humor was delivered dead-pan, and the philosophical thoughts were presented with intonation when needed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh out loud! The characters were endearing.

    Allison Weiss is a typical working mother, trying to balance a business, aging parents, a demanding daughter, and a marriage. But when the website she develops takes off, she finds herself challenged to the point of being completely overwhelmed. Her husband’s becoming distant, her daughter’s acting spoiled, her father is dealing with early Alzheimer’s, and her mother’s barely dealing at all.

    Would you listen to All Fall Down again? Why?

    Jennifer Weiner writes with such a great comedic voice, you cannot help to be drawn in. This story line is a much more serious than her other books, but still delivered with that unfailing humor.

    Veteran social worker Ellen Moore has seen the worst side of humanity - the vilest acts one person can commit against another. She is a fiercely dedicated children's advocate and a devoted mother and wife. But one blistering summer day, a simple moment of distraction will have repercussions that Ellen could never have imagined.

    This topic is all over the newspapers right now and I'm seeing discussions on Facebook and other social media outlets all the time. I would love to think that I could never leave one of my children in a car, but I am a busy mom of three and I can never say that an accident could never happen. This story gives you insight into what may happen in the situation. The story is well-written and the audio book was very well-narrated.
