    An enchanting New York Times and international best seller and award-winner about life, art, literature, philosophy, culture, class, privilege, and power, seen through the eyes of a 54-year-old French concierge and a precocious but troubled 12-year-old girl.

    I loved this book. So thought provoking and you instantly care about the characters. I listened to it twice to absorb all the beautiful details and observations about life. A definite read!

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "I didn't want the book to end."
    Overall

    The narrator Jenna Lamia has done a spectacular job! Every voice and character so beautifully read. I felt as if I knew them all. Beth Hoffman has written a novel I will listen to again and again. There are so many emotional moments of clarity and beauty I cannot list them all. If you are looking for a wonderful, touching and memorable book, THIS IS IT!

    Determined to sever his ties with the Office, Gabriel Allon has retreated to the windswept cliffs of Cornwall with his beautiful Venetian-born wife, Chiara. But once again his seclusion is interrupted by a visitor from his tangled past: the endearingly eccentric London art dealer Julian Isherwood. As usual, Isherwood has a problem. And it is one only Gabriel can solve.

    Alexis says: "Silva and Gigante -- A Superb Team!!!"
    "Absolutely awful"
    Overall

    If you wonder why the world will always be at war, all you have to do is listen to this book. Yes, the Holocaust was one of the great human trajedies of our time. Is it justification for every violent act of retaliation? No. Is it grounds for Restitution? No.

    Behind every great fortune lies a great crime? The author doesn't even see the hypocrisy of the whole premise of his book.

    I thoroughly dislike the narrator. His female voices are simpering and annoying. Sorry, I have nothing good to say about this book. I forgot I had listened to a previous novel by this author and was so sorry I wasted my money on supporting the Jewish rationalization of their continued violence.

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Christine says: "Stick With It!"
    "Worth it!"
    Overall

    Don't let negative comments about the narration turn you away from this book. While I agree with the comments about the strange narration, which became particularly noticable in Part 2, I am soooo glad I listened to this book. Great story!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Real and beautiful"
    Overall

    The world has lines which must be crossed no matter how uncomfortable. This is a story of triumph over fear. I loved the characters and now the book has ended, I miss them already!

    Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head - literally. Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli. Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

    Overall

    I'm a huge Janet Evanovich fan and have read all her books but was really disappointed in "15". What happened to Lula and Tank's engagement? When is the plot going to move on? The relationships are still the same. Joe or Ranger, Ranger or Joe? Stephanie still doing the same old thing. I was hoping for a little progression in the story line.

    When Assistant District Attorney Alex Cooper is summoned to Tina Barr's apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side, she finds a neighbor convinced that the young woman was assaulted. But the terrified victim, a conservator of rare books and maps, refuses to cooperate with investigators. Then another woman is found murdered in that same apartment with an extremely valuable book, believed to have been stolen.

    I love the characters in Linda's books. The stories always wrap up too quickly and with too many details of the mystery in the last few pages. Fairstein's books are full of wonderful and interesting trivia. Barbara Rosenblat's narration is, as always, first rate.
