  • What Falls Away

    Told with grace and deep understanding, as well as humor, Mia Farrow's exquisitely written memoir goes beneath the surface of her amazing life, with all its drama, success, and pain, and exposes the inner workings of a mind and spirit for whom truth, compassion, and faith are essential.

    One reviewer described the narration as wooden...I would have to agree. A second narrator takes over, she's better, during the part of the book that focuses on the sexual assaults by Woody Allen. I assume this part of the book was too painful for her to read. Overall it was a very interesting and compelling listen. I recommend.

  • Angela's Ashes

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 57 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    I couldn't finish this one. I was really quite bored. I wanted to enjoy it and make it to the end but gave up about 1/2 way through part 2.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 56 mins)

    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.

    I'll never look at our dog the same way again! Really enjoyed this and it wasn't nearly as sad as I thought it would be.....very heartwarming!
