  • Shadow of the Titanic: The Extraordinary Stories of those Who Survived

    Although we think we know the story of the Titanic - the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 - little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night?

  • Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Where does Born Standing Up rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is a shorter book, but nonetheless very entertaining and insightful. I really loved the insight into Martin's history and how he crafted his act. I think I am left feeling surprised that he took his humor so seriously! I am a big fan of his music, so it made me happy to hear his banjo tunes in between the chapters. That was a great touch.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Touch & Go to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. I am a professional artist and listen while I paint.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was gripping! I also love how the the mystery-solve was "revealed" in a slow, and story-worthy way. None of the typical "let's just blurt out all the explanations in the last chapter" sort of thing. The story was so interesting. There were surprises around every corner. Never a dull moment!


    Have you listened to any of Elisabeth Rodgers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to her before, but I will again!! Her accents were very well performed and she had the ability to transform her voice into each characterization. I loved listening to her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have! It was that good! A couple of times I was listening alone at night and had to turn to music so that I could keep from getting spooked!
