    Susan McFarland watched, powerless, as her husband, Rick McFarland, went into a downhill spiral of get-rich-quick schemes, quirky shopping trips, and prescription-drug abuse. Susan, a rising star at a major corporation, finally had enough. When she decided to call it quits, Rick ended her life, leaving three young boys - ages 5, 8, and 11 - without a mother. A two-month long search by law enforcement and volunteers found no trace of the missing woman....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Forever to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but I suppose so, the narrator's tone make you feel the story


    What other book might you compare Gone Forever to and why?

    I could compare with books by Ann Rule. I don't know much about Diane Fanning but, sure thing, I'll look up another of her books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None in particular.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The worsening of the victim's husband

    Story

    If you are eager to read John and Patsy Ramsey's new release about the mysterious death of their daughter JonBenet, you won't want to miss Perfect Murder, Perfect Town. Schiller creates a portrait of an inscrutable family thrust under the spotlight of public suspicion and an affluent, tranquil city torn apart by a crime it was unprepared to deal with.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's too long


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I think there is too much quibbling to explain that the case remained unsolved because the police made faults at the very begining.


    What about Ron McLarty’s performance did you like?

    On the whole, I enjoyed it.


    Do you think Perfect Murder, Perfect Town needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't think so.

    Story
    (1225)

    In a series of illuminating, often surprising experiments, MIT behavioral economist Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. Blending everyday experience with groundbreaking research, Ariely explains how expectations, emotions, social norms, and other invisible, seemingly illogical forces skew our reasoning abilities.

    Stephen says: "Well researched, well written, & well read"
    "Good and fine observation of our behaviour"
