  • The Seamstress

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 19 mins)
    • By Sara Tuvel Bernstein, Louise Loots Thornton, Marlene Bernstein Samuels
    • Narrated By Wanda McCaddon

    Told with the same old-fashioned narrative power as the novels of Herman Wouk, The Seamstress is the true story of Seren (Sara) Tuvel Bernstein and her survival during wartime. This powerful eyewitness account of survival, told with power and grace, will stay with listeners for years to come.

    Mary says: "One of the most moving books..............."
    "Beautiful Story of Strength"
    What made the experience of listening to The Seamstress the most enjoyable?

    I'm not sure the narrator could've been better because her delivery made the story quite enjoyable.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Obviously Sara sticks out as it's her story but each person added a depth to the book that I appreciated.

    What about Wanda McCaddon’s performance did you like?

    Her commitment to accents and emotional delivery

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

    Gah!... It's a recollection of the events surrounding the Holocaust in Hungary. Most moments were moving.

    Any additional comments?

    While I appreciated what the intro and Epilogue had to say about Sara, I could have just as easily gone without it and the additional hour which is why, Overall, I marked the book as 4 stars.

  • Bossypants

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 35 mins)
    • By Tina Fey
    • Narrated By Tina Fey

    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....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "What a Hilarious Time Filler"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    Absa-friggin-lutely. Tina Fey's narration makes this book what it is. It'd still be amusing in print but her delivery is flawless.

    What other book might you compare Bossypants to and why?

    I can't think of anything else I've read or heard that was like this.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Her chapter on her honeymoon.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was a bit like a kiddy roller coaster of emotion. Some excerpts where hilarious, others were heartfelt, some were sad, a few were fantastic insights about the world of comedy.

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this whole book on a 7 hour round trip car ride with my boyfriend. It provided some fantastic filler for a long road trip and provided some excellent jumping off points for conversation. I'd recommend to anyone with a decent sense of humor and good vocabulary. Only thing that bothered me was when she trailed off in a quieter voice that was barely audible over the sound of the road even with the sound system cranked way up. This probably wouldn't be an issue with headphones.
