    The last thing Lisa Edwards needed was a new dog. But when she came across an abandoned litter on Halloween, her heart went out to the runt who walked into walls and couldn't steady his feet. Lisa - healing from past abuse and battling constant pain from a chronic medical condition - saw a bit of herself in little Boo. And when he snuggled, helpless, against her, she knew he was meant to be hers. The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog.

    Pamela Dale Foster says: "Soothing, relaxing, inspirational"
    "A touching book about a special dog!"

    Story
    If you could sum up A Dog Named Boo in three words, what would they be?

    Touching, Uplifting, Inspiring


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lisa herself. She doesn't gloss over the bad things that happened to her. Her story has ups and downs and you can relate with many things that happen to her because she so openly tells about her life and the impact of Atticus, Dante and Boo.


    Which character – as performed by Meredith Mitchell – was your favorite?

    The times she talks about SnuggaBoo/PokeyBoo and the therapy visits when Boo is able to touch others with his tenderness


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and I hope Lisa continues to tell of the life she lives with her Husband and her dogs!

    Sequestered in the blackness of the dreaded Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas, surrounded by nameless creatures of evil, Raistlin Majere weaves a plan to conquer the darkness - to bring it under his control. Crysania, a beautiful and devoted cleric of Paladine, tries to use her faith to lead Raistlin from the darkness. She is blind to his shadowed designs, and he draws her slowly into his neatly woven trap. Made aware of Raistlin’s plan, a distraught Caramon travels back in time to the doomed city of Istar in the days before the Cataclysm.

    Matthew says: "TERRIBLE, Passionless, and Dry Narration"

    Story
    What did you like best about Time of the Twins? What did you like least?

    Best - the story is classic Weis/Hickman, the continuing story of Raistlin and Caramon is engaging and entertaining.Worst - narrator! He mispronounces characters names so often I get annoyed (btw the name is Sturm not Strum, he's not a guitar!). He's completely without passion or even interest in the subject it seems, and I have no interest in listening to him read when the closest analogy is Ben Stein's teacher from Ferris Bueller (Tanis?... Tanis?)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Time of the Twins?

    The complexity of Raistlin's plan


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    See Best/Worst


    Was Time of the Twins worth the listening time?

    No, but only because the narrator made it so.

    A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home, however, the pressures of his physical wounds, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. In constant physical pain, he soon found himself unable to climb a simple flight of stairs or face a bus ride to the VA hospital. He drank; he argued; he cut himself off from those he loved. Then Luis met Tuesday, a beautiful and sensitive golden retriever....

    Where does Until Tuesday rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this book high in the list of books I've heard so far


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Until Tuesday?

    When Luis described his attachment to Tuesday growing to the point that Tuesday truly bonded with him


    What about Luis Carlos Montalvan’s performance did you like?

    You could hear the deep emotion in his voice when he described things that were either disturbing or touching to him quite clearly, I think that having someone else read it would have lost the depth of feeling expressed.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When a former soldier and a service dog saved each other.


    Any additional comments?

    I would and have recommended this book to my friends and family and I also purchased a hard copy to donate to my local Humane Society to spread the word about this great book!
