    Story
    (387)

    Meet Anita Thompson: she's young, she's lovely, she's clever, and she's a witch. A real one. Anita lives in two worlds: the modern world of supermarkets and sports cars, radio and rock-and-roll, where she is a thoroughly modern girl with a thoroughly modern interest in boys and fast living and her own independence. But she also lives in the ancient and rustic world of traditions, cauldrons, and familiars.

    I have not listened to any Nicola Barber's other performances.

  • Justice: A Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Novel

    Story
    (138)

    The cruel and bizarre slaying of a beautiful teen leads Detective Decker into the dark heart of an exotic subculture: the seamy, sometimes violent world of Southern California's rootless, affluent youth. But even the confession of a disturbed kid with cold "killer eyes" cannot soothe Decker's inner torment. For he knows in his gut this crime goes much deeper and higher than anyone expects - and that true justice, brutal and complete, has yet to be done.

    Carol says: "Great Story but Not Typical of the Series"
    "A good tale"

    Would you listen to Justice again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to Justice again. It introduces a couple new characters and still keeps the reader interested in Rina and Decker as characters and as people.


    What other book might you compare Justice to and why?

    Gun Games, also written by Faye Kellerman, has many parallels to this tale.


    Which character – as performed by Mitchell Greenberg – was your favorite?

    Rina


    Any additional comments?

  • Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

    Story
    (628)

    Miss Pettigrew is a down-on-her-luck, middle-aged governess sent by her employment agency to work for a nightclub singer rather than a household of unruly children. Over a period of 24 hours, as she becomes caught up in the life of Delysia LaFloss, her own life is changed - forever. This charming, funny, light-hearted 1938 novel was a bestseller on its first appearance. Read by Academy Award winning actress Frances McDormand, who stars in the 2008 film as Miss Pettigrew.

    Holly C. Salley says: "Adorable"
    "The movie was fun but this is better."
    Overall

    This story isn't too long but it is fun. The characterizations are great and the narration by Frances McDormand is wonderful!

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    Brian says: "Know what sucks about this book?"
    "This is great fun."
    Overall

    I know this is a book of short stories that fit between Jim Butcher's novels but it got me started reading Butcher's books and is great fun on its own.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    joshua says: "Card doing what he does best."
    "another coming of age tale"
    Overall

    This is a well written, fun and thoughtful book from Orson Scott Card. I enjoyed it and recommend it for anyone 10 through adult.
