  • One L: The Turbulent True Story of a First Year at Harvard Law School

    One L, Scott Turow's journal of his first year at law school and a best seller when it was first published in 1977, has gone on to become a virtual bible for prospective law students. Not only does it introduce with remarkable clarity the ideas and issues that are the stuff of legal education; it also brings alive the anxiety and competitiveness, with others and, even more, with oneself, that set the tone in this crucible of character building.

    Overall

    Just not interesting to me....a lot of tiny details and personal insight about HLS. I didn't finish it. Some people found it interesting... I didn't.

  • And One Last Thing...

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Would you listen to And One Last Thing... again? Why?

    It was a cute story, predictable in terms of where the story was heading. Wife is wronged and exacts revenge, turning her life upside down. While upside down she sees the world differently and it turns out to be a good thing.


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

    No, but she is a great reader. I felt she had perfect tone for the character.


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

    There are some great zingers in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked it.

    Brokenhearted and still mourning the loss of her husband, Heidi travels with Abbott, her obsessive-compulsive eight-year-old son, and Charlotte, her intolerably jaded 16-year-old niece, to spend the summer repairing their family home in a small village in the south of France. There, thousands of miles from home, Charlotte makes a shocking confession, and Heidi learns the truth about her mother’s “lost summer” when she was a child.

    Cynthia says: "Wouldn't cure my broken heart"
    "Are We There Yet?..."
    Overall

    Four hours in and they are just getting to Provence. I didn't expect Sophie Kinsella but this is very introspective. Each monument, crepe and cigarette is an opportunity for the protagonist to recall her husband and when they ate crepes, smoked cigarettes and saw the Eiffel Tower together. We'll see, but this is not a breezy book. More like "Elegance of the Hedgehog" in terms of style. It is wistful in prose and performance. Some people will love it.. but it isn't for me.

    An enchanting New York Times and international best seller and award-winner about life, art, literature, philosophy, culture, class, privilege, and power, seen through the eyes of a 54-year-old French concierge and a precocious but troubled 12-year-old girl.

    Pyles says: "It surprised me"
    "Not for me..."
    Overall

    Wow. It's a lot of rambling and inner dialogue about philosophy, the burden of being smart and other musings. It's not a traditional story so listen carefully to the sample and you will see what you are getting.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "It's as good as everyone says...."
    Overall

    It is beautifully read... at even at 18 hours you don't want it to end.
