  • Love & Lies: Marisol's Story

    Marisol Guzman has deferred college for a year to accomplish two things: She will write a novel and she will fall in love. How hard could that be? She gets her very own apartment (with her high school best friend as roommate) and a waitressing job at a classic Harvard Square coffeehouse. When she enrolls in an adult education class - "How to Write Your First Novel" - there are two big surprises waiting for her.

    Would you try another book from Ellen Wittlinger and/or Anne Marie Lee?

    I would never listen to anything narrated by Anna Marie Lee again. If I could have given her performance zero stars I would have. This is a story being written from the perspective of a 19 year old lesbian. This woman read the story as if it were a wistful children's story geared towards toddlers. Her voice never drops at the end of sentences. It was painful, I almost didn't make it past the first minute. Since I paid for the book I forced myself to get through it. No self respecting gay woman would say "Annie Difranco"! Too bad this woman did a terrible disservice to Ellen Wittlinger. I would have liked to hear this read by a younger performer who is actually in touch with the twenty-something lgbtq community.


    Would you recommend Love & Lies to your friends? Why or why not?

    The print book, sure. NOT the audiobook.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious, witty, and as real as it gets. I enjoyed every minute of this and it really made it that much funnier to hear Tina Fey reading every word as she meant it.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Not quite the same as devouring the books."

    What did you love best about The Hunger Games?

    I enjoyed the story just as much, but the performance sounded a little too old sometimes. Katniss sounded youthful and age-appropriate at times and then too mature at others.

    Dr. Brian Weiss is a highly respected psychiatrist from the mainstream of the medical establishment. Catherine is one of his most difficult cases, a 27-year-old woman racked by phobias and anxieties. In the course of Catherine's treatment, Dr. Weiss makes a startling discovery. Under hypnosis, she recollects, in vivid detail, events from past lives ranging from the prehistoric times and ancient Egypt to the 20th century and the fires of World War II.

    This was so thought provoking. I thought the performance was very good and the account in general was riveting. I would definitely listen to this again soon!

    Kate was Lissa's best friend. They've shared everything for four years. Then one night at a drunken party, Kate leaned in to kiss Lissa, and Lissa kissed her back. And now Kate is pretending Lissa doesn't exist. Confused and alone, Lissa's left questioning everything she thought she knew about herself, and about life.

    Carla says: "Just OK"
    "pretty good."

    Would you listen to Kissing Kate again? Why?

    Perhaps, it was entertaining to listen to in the car, but I don't feel the need to listen to it again right away though. I enjoyed the plot and performance.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.
