    In the wild, when a wolf knows its time is over, when it knows it is of no more use to its pack, it may sometimes choose to slip away. Dying apart from its family, it stays proud and true to its nature. Humans aren’t so lucky. Luke Warren has spent his life researching wolves. He has written about them, studied their habits intensively, and even lived with them for extended periods of time.

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "Typical Jodi Picoult plot, chik lit but good"
    "It is a good one"

    Would you listen to Lone Wolf again? Why?

    I like the use of different actors reading the different parts. Interesting story line.

  • Evolving in Monkey Town: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask the Questions

    Story
    (39)

    Having grown up in a town famous for its commitment to conservative fundamentalism, Rachel Held Evans nearly loses her faith when rehearsed answers to tough questions aren't enough to satisfy her growing doubts about Christianity. Evolving in Monkey Town is a story of spiritual survival that challenges listeners to reassess their approach to Christianity in the context of a postmodern environment, where knowing all the answers isn't as important as truly asking the questions.

    The author's voice is very easy to listen to and I felt like I was in a room with a friend. I found this book to have many 'aha' moments. I love it so much I got listed to her blog. I can't believe you would regret getting this book. I am planning on buying it for some of my friends so we can discuss it together.

    Story

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"
    "Worth the time but..."
    Overall

    I found the main story line to be interesting however, I just felt there were too many stories. It seems to lose a little focus.

    I did enjoy the author's voice.
