    Story
    (1711)

    During his years in a neural-health facility, Pat Peoples has formulated a theory about silver linings. He believes that his life is a movie produced by God, that his mission is to become physically fit and emotionally supportive, and that if he succeeds, his happy ending will be the return of his estranged wife, Nikki. When Pat goes to live with his parents, everything seems changed: no one will talk to him about Nikki, and his new therapist seems to be recommending adultery as a form of therapy.

  • Beautiful Ruins

    Story
    (5284)

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story
    Would you listen to Beautiful Ruins again? Why?

    Yes. First the story is so finely woven that surely I have missed important details. Second, the narrator really does an incredible job. His voice did not distract me from the story but brought me in.


    What other book might you compare Beautiful Ruins to and why?

    I don't know but I did love it as much as The Help


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

    Absolutely! Excellent!


    Any additional comments?

    I am almost finished and I don't want it to end.
