    In What Really Happened, Rielle Hunter offers an extremely personal account of her relationship with John Edwards: the facts of how they actually met; how their accidental love started and escalated; what it was like to fall in love with a married man who decided to run for president; the surprise of becoming pregnant during the campaign; how the affair became public; the extensive coverup, and finally, what happened in the years after Edwards publicly admitted to being the father of their daughter, Frances Quinn.

    What made the experience of listening to What Really Happened the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable....not exactly. More like watching a train wreck and not being able to leave the scene. Part of me is totally ashamed that I even bought this book, but after Andrew Young's book, I was curious. What exactly was Rielle's "truth". OK, on one hand we have a whore and on the other a lawyer. In his case, a pretty close call but I'll give Andrew the edge. Rielle, all I can say is you and Johnny DESERVE each other and thank you for sparing the rest of civilization by finding him. I pray you are a better mother than you are a human being or that poor child is totally screwed. Yeah, maybe Elizabeth had her issues, but your total lack of empathy for the fact that you were screwing her HUSBAND and FATHER of her children, may you rot in hell for doing that. Have you NO shame?? And then to complain about Quinn deserving more of a father figure?? HELLO, maybe you should have thought about that before undressing. Shame on YOU. Anyway, good luck. Your child certainly needs it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What Really Happened?

    So much shock and awe I'm not sure I can pick a moment


    Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great performance by Cassandra.


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

    Sick...it made me sick and she gives women in general a bad name. He was married for goodness sakes. Pick someone unmarried. It's easier and less painful.


    Any additional comments?

    Rielle and Johnny, please go somewhere and stay out of the public eye. No one wants to hear about your sick lives anymore. RIP Elizabeth.

    Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world.

    Amanda Lindhout reads her spectacularly dramatic memoir of a woman whose curiosity about the world led her from rural Canada to imperiled and dangerous countries on every continent, and then into 15 months of harrowing captivity in Somalia - a story of courage, resilience, and extraordinary grace. In August 2008, she traveled to Mogadishu, Somalia - "the most dangerous place on Earth." On her fourth day in the country, she and her photojournalist companion were abducted.

    Pat Summitt, the all-time winningest coach in NCAA basketball history and best-selling author of Reach for the Summitt and Raise the Roof, tells for the first time her remarkable story of victory and resilience as well as facing down her greatest challenge: early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Pat Summitt was only 21 when she became head coach of the Tennessee Vols women's basketball team. For 38 years, she has broken records, winning more games than any NCAA team in basketball history.

    If you could sum up Sum It Up in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed listening to Pat's life story. The only part I didn't like is how Alzheimer's is now part of Pat's life. To get it at early onset as well is just the pits. Kudos to Pat for the many lives she has impacted and helped shape.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sum It Up?

    On a positive side, finally having a baby after so many miscarriages was terrific. Of course, all the wins and awards she and her teams achieved was wonderful.


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

    There was a lot of emotion listening to the book instead of just reading it which really made the book come alive.


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

    The making of a champion.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this book and not just to the sports enthusiast. It's a story of hard work and the rewards that follow or sometimes the rewards are not a trophy but instead growth and development that's takes you to the next level. Best wishes to Pat and her family.

    Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org - the church's highest ministry - speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.

    Would you listen to Beyond Belief again? Why?

    Not sure I could listen to this book again. It was a great book but realizing how Jenna was robbed of a childhood along with the other children is heartbreaking. I didn't know much about Scientology before and wow...I know more than I want to now. No wonder Katie Holmes took off like she did!


    What other book might you compare Beyond Belief to and why?

    This was a great book and a must read.


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

    The narration was great.


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

    Beyond Belief would be a good title.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    What made the experience of listening to Unbroken the most enjoyable?

    The story line was incredible. Talk about a person's will to live being so strong!! I think God had a plan for Louie and what a life that was.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unbroken?

    Too many memorable moments, both good and bad to pick one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Louie fulfilled his promise to God to serve him, not only was that a great moment, but also a moment that changed his life forever.


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

    This book could have also been named An American Hero.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you to the author for telling Louie's incredible tale.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Would you consider the audio edition of No Easy Day to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The SEALS as a group. Their sacrifice, dedication is incredible.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So many moments that moved me. This is probably the best book I have "read" in years. Narration was fabulous and the story was rivoting. I could NOT stop listening. The only sad point to me is that our men and women who so bravely sacrifice and put their lives in danger aren't given more for their sacrifice. They deserve SO much better and so much more. God bless all our men and women in uniform and especially for the SEALs, GOD BLESS YOU.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Despite incredible sad events, John never lost his faith.

    His voice portrayed the sadness, grief, loss, and desperation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I often wondered how he put one foot in front of the other and continued to live. I was amazed at how many awful events he endured in his life but continued to believe God would not forsake him.

    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Wendy S. Ohl says: "Good story, hard to listen to"
    "waste of time and a credit"
    Overall

    I have read every book by John Grisham and was thrilled to hear he had another book. What a HUGE disappointment! His narration of the book was the worst I have ever heard and the stories were about as interesting as an afternoon of cleaning toliets. I gave this book 1 star ONLY because this was his first disaster. He must have had some urgent bills to pay to release this mess.
