    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Worst narration, hands down. I don't understand how it got so many good reviews. The only reason I kept listening was because I knew it had to get better, buy it never did.

    In the opening pages of Jamie Ford's stunning debut, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Henry Lee comes upon a crowd gathered outside the Panama Hotel, once the gateway to Seattle's Japantown. It has been boarded up for decades, but now the new owner has made an incredible discovery: the belongings of Japanese families, left when they were rounded up and sent to internment camps during World War II. As Henry looks on, the owner opens a Japanese parasol.

    What did you love best about Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet?

    I loved the story line. It was very interesting to read about the different cultures and what was happening during the war. I had no idea there were "concentration camps" in the US.
    This was a beautiful book and worth every minute!!!

    A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty is a powerful saga of three generations of women, plagued by hardships and torn by a devastating secret, yet inextricably joined by the bonds of family. Fifteen-year-old Mosey Slocumb-spirited, sassy, and on the cusp of womanhood-is shaken when a small grave is unearthed in the backyard, and determined to figure out why it's there. Liza, her stroke-ravaged mother, is haunted by choices she made as a teenager. But it is Jenny, Mosey's strong and big-hearted grandmother....

    I enjoyed the story and felt a connection with Big, but I felt the narration and the dialog for Mose spoiled it for me.

    I've heard better narration. She seems to loose and gain accents. I was intrigued by the story line and really got connected to the characters.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What's not to love about time travel, a good love story and the assasination of JKF all rolled into one fabulous book! The narration was one of the best I've listened to.

    The story was captivating, but too gorey and gruesome when describing the death scenes of the animals and the end of some of characters towards the end of the book.

    When a whale beaches itself on the shore of the remote coastal town of Paradise Deep, the last thing any of the townspeople expect to find inside it is a man, silent and reeking of fish but remarkably alive. The discovery of this mysterious person, soon christened Judah, sets the town scrambling for answers as its most prominent citizens weigh in on whether he is man or beast, blessing or curse, miracle or demon.

    Mylrea Estell says: "spellbinding"
    "Did not hold my interest"

    Just couldn't get into it. Didn't hold my interest, only book I haven't finished.
