    Released from prison after two years for manslaughter, Iry heads to Montana for a fresh start on a ranch owned by a prison buddy's father. He also hopes to nail down a song he's been working on, unable to get quite right. But soon new troubles bring tragic consequences, and it will take a lot more than a soulful tune to ease the pain.

    Story
    Where does The Lost Get-Back Boogie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story is terrific and believeable and the narration is superior.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Get-Back Boogie?

    It's been a while since I've listened, but I think the most memorable moment was when the main character did not get sent back to jail. Though he was guilty, you just couldn't help pull for the guy and wish that he would get on the right track!


    Which character – as performed by Will Patton – was your favorite?

    The main character, though I'm awful with names and it's been a while since I listened to this.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I try to spread my listening out for just when I'm in the car, to and forth from work. It helps to pass the time. But this book, I found myself listening to it on my walks with the dogs too. It was hard spacing it out.


    Any additional comments?

    In a way, this author reminds me of Louis L'amore who I've heard never wrote about a place unless he'd been there. It has to be true with this author as well.

  • The End of the Affair

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 28 mins)

    Story
    (2347)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Emily - Audible says: "Colin Firth Kills It"
    "Fascinating!"

    If you could sum up The End of the Affair in three words, what would they be?

    Held my attention.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well the main character was my favorite, but I read so much and listen to so much, at this late stage, I can only guess that his name was Maurice. That's saying a lot, because I cannot even come close to remembering character names from other books I've listened to. He reminded me a lot of myself in my younger years. Through his eyes, I saw many of my own securities and how I drove a person/people away. I'm not sure that I could have related back then and corrected my path anymore than Maurice could have. I doubt that he ever "saw himself" and what he was doing to piss on his own foot.


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

    This could be YOUR story.


    Any additional comments?

    This audible book gave me a lot to think about, and it's one that I will not forget. There aren't too many of those.
