    Overall

    Once I got into this book and realized the depth that was going into each of the main characters I couldn't stop listening to it. I loved it and it will stay with me for a long time. The reader was so amazing because I heard so many different voices and accents.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    "Loved it!!"
    Overall

    I haven't seen the movie but I was interested in the subject. Once I started listening to it I was living the characters in my life. I know people like Amanda Priestly and they would never see themselves in this character. At one point I listened to the story four hours straight and I was exhausted after living with Andrea as she answered every beck and call of Amanda. I highly recommend this book. It's very well written and very well read,

  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    Story
    (1832)

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I have to admit I had already read the hardcopy and I wanted to have it read to me. I feel the story was easier to follow as an audio book because you always knew who was speaking because of who was reading. I got another level of understanding by listening to it.

    After earning a graduate degree in creative writing from the University of East Anglia, Tracy Chevalier was immediately recognized for her literary talent. In Girl with a Pearl Earring, she recreates the 17th-century world of Johannes Vermeer.

    Elizabeth says: "A Masterpiece"
    "Wonderful story"
    Overall

    I liked this book much more than I was expecting. The story was very well developed and all the pieces were brought together in the end. The readers voice was wonderful as the voice of the young woman and I really felt like I got in her head through her thoughts.

  • Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder

    Homer's Odyssey is the once-in-a-lifetime story of an extraordinary cat and his human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limits on love, ability, or hope against overwhelming odds. By turns jubilant and moving, it's a memoir for anybody who's ever fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.

    John S. says: "Pleasantly surprised"
    "Couldn't put it down!"
    Overall

    This was such a good story. The fact that is true made it even better. I had read a review of the book in a recent Newsweek magazine so I knew Homer had survived in an apartment near Ground Zero on 9/11 but to hear the story of it just made my heart go out to everyone who personally went through that day as it happened in New York. I don't believe you have to be a cat lover to throughly enjoy this book. Gwen Cooper is a very good writer!
