    A Study in Emerald draws listeners in through carefully revealed details as a consulting detective and his narrator friend solve the mystery of a murdered German noble. But with its subtle allusions and surprise ending, this mystery hints that the real fun in solving this case lies in imagining all the details that Gaiman doesn't reveal, and challenges listeners to be detectives themselves.

    Story

    this was a great short story, reminded me of Sherlock Holmes. Niel Gaiman is a great author and a great narrator. I was amazed at how much character development was achieved in such a short amount of time. I could (and have) listen to this story over and over again! Neil Gaiman is a favorite.

    A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. He is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock. Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie - magical, comforting, wise beyond her years - promised to protect him, no matter what.

    There is something so magical about an author reading their own story. I was mesmerized and haunted throughout this novel by Neil Gaiman. A new favorite for sure!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Unstuff Your Life to be better than the print version?

    Hard to tell... But I Really appreciated that his website had pretty much EVERYTHING I needed in downloadable format!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Andrew Mellen!! His personality really really comes through and as the author, he does a great job narrating his "self-help" book which is written in first-person.


    What does Andrew J. Mellen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This is his business and his passion! since he is reading us his book, it is like having a private training session with him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    He had a lot of anecdotes about his clients and how he helped them overcome there fears and help them become more organized.


    Any additional comments?

    if you are interested in organization, this is a great book. I think he does a great job at making organization & an organized home/office a manageable undertaking!

    Story

    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    Would you listen to In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain again? Why?

    yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I could picture each character getting into each of these situations! It was great to see another side of these macho men who would never go to therapy, let alone a sex-therapist! They became a little more human


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love that they used the same narrators from each of the series for each of the short stories, it really made it more plausible. Voice acting is great, & usually they can bring more to the story because they become the character!


    Who was the most memorable character of In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain and why?

    I really enjoyed Dr. Snow. I am new to her books, but this made me want read/listen to more! Cotton Malone is always so cool and collected too!


    Any additional comments?

    It left me wanting more stories!!
