    Calling to mind such timeless war-and-love classics as Corelli's Mandolin and The English Patient, Guernica is a transporting novel that thrums with the power of storytelling and is peopled with characters driven by grit and heart.

    Ann Diggins says: "Wonderful and heartbreaking"

    Where does Guernica rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best listens of the year for me.


    What about Lloyd James’s performance did you like?

    I just became so attached to the characters.


    If you could take any character from Guernica out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Gusto, definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the time. This was a sliver of history I knew nothing about. I liked the link to Picasso's famous mural

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    Erin says: "Pure fun"
    "Funny, satisfying listen!"

  • Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

    At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking, reading to partying; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over brainstorming in teams. Although they are often labeled "quiet," it is to introverts that we owe many of the great contributions to society--from van Gogh’s sunflowers to the invention of the personal computer.

    Teddy says: "Thought provoking and Uplifting.... A++++++++!!!!!"
    "Gets you thinking in new ways"

    Would you listen to Quiet again? Why?

    Great and interesting ideas.


    What other book might you compare Quiet to and why?

    Malcolm Gladwell's Blink


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

    This was one of my favorite performances - her pitch and voice were perfect for the subject.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I can stop feeling weird that I'm uncomfortable at cocktail parties!

    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    Joanne says: "A completely satisfying listen"
    "Bosch is still my favorite Connelly character"
