    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....

    "The absolute WORST audiobook EVER"
    Overall

    I'm not sure what was worse, the banal, irritating dialogue, the ridiculously lame predictable story, the weak uninspired characters or without question, the worst narration I have ever endured. DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$ or credits. This was fingernails on a chalk board BAD, BAD, BAD. I am one of those who HAS to finish a listen, no matter how bad and I kept hoping something would happen. It never did and I never got used to the annoying pathetic narration. SO glad to have finished it and hit the delete key with great relish.

    From the best-selling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice. Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. In the aftermath of a massive explosion, Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to rescue Melly or usher Amanda to safety.

    Horrible huge waste of time and money. Narration was so bad and the story went for boring to ridiculous. It's the first time I couldn't finish a listen and was never so happy to hit delete when it was over. Believe the other reviews: Don't Bother!!!

    Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a “private spy” who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from the readers, in the New York Times best-selling novel Vanished. Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

    Story

    I heard the author on a talk radio show and was inspired to listen to this although I usually don't read or listen to this type of novel. It was ok. For something as horrible as happened to one of the characters, the description of the ordeal was lame. Characters were predictable and the investigator had too many things go his way making the story kind of ridiculous. Again, it was all right for a change of pace. If you usually like this author, I'm guessing you'll love it.

    When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love.

    Story

    I LOVED this book. I love Geraldine Brooks in general but this was by far my favorite and a must listen. I was sursprised by the few negative comments on the narration, I found it outstanding and perfectly suited to the story. Very, very well done. I was never so disappointed to have an audiobook finish. The story is grim and gruesome, but the detail and perserverance are inspiring. Simply amazing, do not miss this one if you enjoy historical fiction, especially this time period even a little bit.

    Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the 20th century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.

    I LOVED listening to this book. Katherine Kellgren is truly gifted. It was not so much the story that kept me enthralled, but the narration and descption of an an era I so love to study. If you are even mildly interested in the Gilded Age do not miss this one.

    Barbara Demick's Nothing to Envy follows the lives of six North Koreans over fifteen years - a chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung and the unchallenged rise to power of his son, Kim Jong-il, and the devastation of a far-ranging famine that killed one-fifth of the population. Taking us into a landscape never before seen, Demick brings to life what it means to be an average Korean citizen, living under the most repressive totalitarian regime today.

    A spellbinding mystery of obsession and guilt, this is also the poignant story of what happens to those left behind when a child vanishes without trace.It is the summer of 1968, the day Senator Robert Kennedy is shot. Two nine-year-old girls are playing hide and seek in the ruins of a deserted village. Alice has discovered a secret about Eleanor Ramsay's mother, and is taunting the other girl. When it is Eleanor's turn to hide, Alice disappears.

    I got totally into this listen and couldn't turn it off, but I found it rambled at times and the ending was extremely predictable for a story that had such complex characters. A bit disapointing.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    I read Ken Follet's Pillars of the Earth and loved the first half of it and hated the second half. This one was excellent and I enjoyed the entire book. The historical content is superb and the story was compelling. I cannot wait for the next saga.

    As the North reels under a series of unexpected defeats during the dark first year of the war, one man leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs. Riveting and elegant as it is meticulously researched, March is an extraordinary novel woven out of the lore of American history.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    I enjoyed this book. The narration was quite good, though some of the voices were overdone. I wish there was more to the story!!
