    In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor").

    Sean says: "Good for Gaffigan fans - better for expecting dads"
    "Gotta love Jim!"

    What made the experience of listening to Dad Is Fat the most enjoyable?

    Listening to Jim tell his stories is just priceless


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed hearing from a dad's perspective. I have read many books from mom's but hearing a dad talk about his experience was entertaining and eye opening. I bet my husband could relate to a lot of Jim's stories, minus 3 children.


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

    I have listened to and seen Jim Gaffigan in concert, this was right in line with his great comedic perfomances.


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

    I laughed out loud many times.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a parent or may become a parent someday buy this book!

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I really loved all the books in this series


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

    This series is the first one I have listened to with Tavia Gilbert and her performance is unbelievably good. Her voice puts me so far into the story that my heart races with the fight scenes and my eyes fill with tears during the sad and happy scenes. Between the writing and the performance it may be the best series I have listed to.

    What made the experience of listening to Deadly Forecast the most enjoyable?

    I really love series, its nice to get to know your characters and see the story evolve from book to book.


    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance?

    She does not do a good job as Abby and her voice inflection for the other characters leaves a lot to be desired. Every time Brice Harrison had a line i cringed because she made him sound like a weasel, not the Assistant Special Agent in Charge. I feel bad saying it but she is not the best choice for this series, a different book maybe, but if i didn't have my kindle book to help me break from the performance I may have given up on this series 10 books ago.


    Any additional comments?

    The series is a good one just get past the narration and you can love Abby, Candace, Dutch, Brice, Milo and the rest of the "crew"

    Business has been frustratingly slow for Abby. She reluctantly agrees to a job with the FBI, putting her at the center of an internal political struggle between two agents. Abby's skills and patience are tested, but when she helps them locate three college students who've mysteriously disappeared, they know she's the real deal. Her intuition says these weren't random abductions. With her psychic eye wide open she sets out to find a kidnapper.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Doom with a View to be better than the print version?

    I would have to recommend the print version, the performance really makes it difficult to listen to. Abby sounds much older than she should. Eileen Stevens, Amanda Ronconi, Amy Rubinate, anyone please give Abby new life.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I really wish a different narrator could be found continuing the series in audio is difficult. I am sure Ms. Michaels could be fine in another book, but she is really not at all right for this one.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance?

    I just don't feel like she sounds like Abby Cooper, no disrespect but I was under the impression that Abby Cooper is in her early 30's and Elizabeth Michaels doesn't sound like a woman in her early 30's from Michigan. She does mispronunce words and places like street names in most books in this series.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the story, but the narrator just isn't right for the character. I am sure she could do other characters in other books better, she just isn't Abby.

    When the family-owned furniture firm, including the mansion where priceless antiques are kept, explodes into flames in the middle of the night, Kate must escape to save her life. But the suspicious circumstances point to her involvement. Was the explosion set deliberately? Why was Kate, a gorgeous CPA for one of the biggest accounting firms in the country, on the premises at that hour? And why was Gus, a retired and trusted employee, with her?

    As a busy mom being able to have the audio version of this book was great. I was able to listen on my commute to work, while doing housework and when getting ready to go to bed. Print versions are good, but being "read to" while doing mundane chores is way better!


    What other book might you compare Daddy's Gone A Hunting to and why?

    It is similar to Mary Higgins Clark's other books, but I own all of them, so I guess she is doing something right.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Kate's experiences and flashes of memory while in a coma was interesting.

    The inflections made this a great listen. You really know how Steve wants you to take what he wrote.

    To her millions of fans Molly Ringwald will forever be 16. As the endearing and witty star of the beloved John Hughes classics Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink, Molly defined teenage angst, love, and heartbreak. While remembered eternally as the enviable high school princess Claire, or the shyly vulnerable Samantha, Molly is now a wife and mother, and just celebrated her 40th birthday.

    More than 50 years after its first publication, Doubleday's definitive edition of Anne Frank's famous diary generated an extraordinary amount of excitement when it was published in early 1995. Enthusiastically received by critics and readers alike, it reigned for nine weeks on The New York Times best seller list and will remain for all time the version that millions of readers will cherish.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I read this book many years ago and this version was different than the Anne Frank of my youth. I thought the story was very moving and listening to Anne's story as an adult and mother made me see it a bit differently. Even though we know the end to the story, listening to Anne just talk about being a teenager was very relatable. I remember feeling some of the same things that Anne describes and that in turn made me think about my own teenage daughter and some of the things she may be thinking and feeling. The times have changed, but so much of it is still relevent.


    What about Selma Blair’s performance did you like?

    She had great inflection and in my mind was Anne
