  • Peony in Love: A Novel

    Story
    (133)

    For young Peony, betrothed to a suitor she has never met, lyrics from The Peony Pavilion mirror her own longings. In the garden of the Chen Family Villa, amid the scent of ginger, green tea, and jasmine, a small theatrical troupe is performing scenes from this epic opera, a live spectacle few females have ever seen. Like the heroine in the drama, Peony is the cloistered daughter of a wealthy family, trapped like a good-luck cricket in a bamboo-and-lacquer cage.

    L. Swartz says: "Unusual and excellent book"
    "Excellent Cultural Lessons!"

    Story
    What did you love best about Peony in Love?

    The strength of the women of this ancient culture and their abilities to endure with grace.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peony because she was very intelligent, a loving person, an excellent example of her culture's expectations and at the same time willing to look farther.


    What does Janet Song bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice is the perfect vehicle to transport you through the lives and culture of this story. I own both and thoroughly understand the story deeper with Janet Song's excellent delivery of the story.


    If you could take any character from Peony in Love out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Peony's BaBa to find out why he allowed his daughter to stop eating and follow into the ways of the Peony Pavillion.


    Any additional comments?

    I continue to learn so much of the ways of an ancient culture and I have deep respect for the difficulties the women endured and the dignity by which they carried themselves under the harshest of expectations.

    It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.

  • Kill Shot: An American Assassin Thriller

    Story
    (4067)

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    Elle says: "I'd listen to Guidall read the tax code, so..."
    "Great Ride!"

    What made the experience of listening to Kill Shot the most enjoyable?

    This is the first book I have read from Vince Flynn and I loved the character Mitch Rapp. This book was also narrated by George Guidall which brings you right into the scene. Love this book and will continue reading others with this character hoping they are as good. I will only listen to those that are unabridged as I feel you loose a lot in the abridged versions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mitch Rapp because he was good at what he does!


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    All were well done.


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

    Loved the intrigue.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the rest of his work is this good.

    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Would you listen to Quitter again? Why?

    Yes, because he has excellent steps toward reaching your goals without causing grief and harm to your current living circumstances!


    What does Jon Acuff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Passion and feeling!


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Quitter?

    Most of all don't quit your day job while you pursue your dream job.


    Any additional comments?

    Fabulous job.
