  • Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 14 mins)

    Story
    (3671)

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    Where does Orange is the New Black rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has been one of my favorite audiobooks. I was actually sad when it ended.


    Any additional comments?

    I teach criminal justice courses. I have been on the look-out for a good book about federal prison and/or female prison experiences. I really liked the format of this book. I plan on making this required reading for my prison course in the future. The audiobook is not like the Netflix version of the story. If you are interested in prison issues, give it a shot. It is worth it.

  • Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide

    (389)

    Whatever You Do, Don't Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top ­safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry ­elephants, and the world's most unpredictable animals: herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!

    Where does Whatever You Do, Don't Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    We really enjoyed this audiobook. We listened to it on a cross country trip. The stories were ones that made us laugh and a couple that made us a bit sad.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character. His story about his nickname, how he got the truck stuck, and other exploits were great!


    What about Antony Ferguson’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was amazing! The expressions and tones helped to really add elements of excitement to the audiobook.


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

    This audio book is a compilation of various events encountered/participated in by the author while living in Africa. We laughed at some of the stories. We were sad at others.

    Story
    (17230)

    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....

    Would you listen to Bossypants again? Why?

    I would. It was enjoyable and funny.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Who was my favorite character? huh? LOL. I love Tina Fey. She really endeared herself to me.


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

    I enjoyed hearing her expressions and tones as she read. I feel like I got more out of it.


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

    We listened to this on a cross-country trip. It was a huge hit. I laughed and found myself identifying with her (except I am not an actress, etc). We really enjoyed it
