    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    This is the best book I have listened to on audible- beware you will not want to leave the car when you start!. The book itself is lovely and is strongly supported by a talented voice cast that bring the story alive. I feel sad that the book is over and I don't think I have ever felt that except when I listened to the Help. Run don't walk to snap up this gem!

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    I am an avid P&P fan, but just could not care less for this book. I did not connect with any of the characters and frankly didnt care what happened because of it. Blah - do not waste a precious credit or money on this one!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (30 hrs and 44 mins)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you try another book from Stephen King and/or Craig Wasson?

    Yes - Craig Wasson was awesome!


    Any additional comments?

    Let me say I loved the way Craig Wasson narrated this book and the story was a wonderful nastolgic story. I think i may have been striken with some overhyping on previous reviews so hence I thought I should weigh in. First of all I am not a huge Stephen King fan (definitely a scaredy cat) but thought the story sounded intriguing decided it was an awesome value for one credit at over thirty hours. I am now thinking maybe thirty hours for the story was too long or that maybe the story was really not that interesting in the first place - not 100% sure. While I'm not certain of the culprit, I can assure you that I did not end this book thinking my "value" for one my credit was achieved.

  • The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf

    Generations of werewolves have been secretly residing in a secluded valley a stones throw from Grundy, Alaska. So when a snooping Outsider comes to Grundy to investigate rumors of lycanthropic shenanigans in the area, the valleys pack alpha, Maggie Graham, resolves to chase him away, even if doing so takes a quick bite on the butt. What a pity that researcher Nick Thatcher turns out to be so drool-worthy, and that his kisses make Maggie want to sit up and beg.

    Would you try another book from Molly Harper and/or Amanda Ronconi?

    I actually have quite a few titles from both and i think that is probably part of the problem. All of Molly Harper's audibles are read by the same person. While I dont find Amanda Ronconi voice annoying, the repetative use of the same vocal voice and the same writing voice (Molly Harper) is just too much. All of the characters end up sounding identical with similar lines and attitudes. Get a fresh vocal voice to give your characters some uniqueness - PLEASE!
