    Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: she taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of 31. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with.

    This is a lift up your spirits story. With it's share of grief and joy it is a wonderful listen. I think the narration was great with all the characters having their distinctive voices.

    The main character is adorable, although he might remind you of Forrest Gump, at least a bit. There are some plot holes, but are minor. Overall I'd definitely recommend it.

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    Overall

    Hands down the best thing about this book is Alfred Mona's performance. That being said the book has it's pros and cons.

    Both a pro and a con is the story. Some great characters are lost in the plot and are never picked up again, and there are major plot holes. However the twists are unexpected and fun, some will have you squealing with delight while some others will have you rolling your eyes at your mp3 device. I said "really, really??" out loud a number of times.

    Another pro is that the story was crafted by wonderful authors, although some transition more smoothly than others chapter to chapter.

    Another con is the ending. Without spoiling it, it is terribly cinematic to be good.

    Will I recommend it? Definitely. It is a great companion while in the car and before bed.
