    What did you like best about The Secret Circle, Volume I: The Initiation? What did you like least?

    The premise of the story is interesting. Unfortunately, the author waists a lot of time with detailed descriptions and repeating the same things over and over. It makes for a lengthy book that's not very interesting since very little actually happens.


    Would you recommend The Secret Circle, Volume I: The Initiation to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It's not very entertaining


    Did Devon Sorvari do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, the narrator did a good job. I wouldn't call it an amazing job like other books I've heard but not bad.


    Did The Secret Circle, Volume I: The Initiation inspire you to do anything?

    Go back to listening other series such as Morganville Vampires

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was entertaining enough


    Any additional comments?

    The book wasn't bad. It did feel kinda short. It was unclear who the main character was and it was hard to follow at times. It's not really a biography. It's a weird book. Not bad, not great. I'd be inclined to read some of her other books, though.

    Most people think 15-year-old Charlie is a freak. But then seniors Patrick and his beautiful stepsister Sam take Charlie under their wings and introduce him to their eclectic, open-minded, hard-partying friends. It is from these older kids that Charlie learns to live and love.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Perks of Being a Wallflower again? Why?

    It's not likely that I would listen again since I'll probably remember the story for a long time. It was very interesting and moving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different relationships felt very real. The twist at the end was very unexpected.


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

    This is my only one and it was very impressive. Noah is extremely talented and can really make you believe a different character is speaking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to give it away.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good listen

    Goldie Hawn's life is an ongoing tableau of stories, and she has a born knack for telling them. In this candid and insightful book, Goldie invites us to join her in a look back at the people, places, and events that have touched her. It is the spiritual journey of a heart in search of enlightenment.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have wanted to hear more details about her career. More about her experiences working on so many movies and interactions with different stars.


    Would you recommend A Lotus Grows in the Mud to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. They would find it very boring after the first part.


    Any additional comments?

    The first part of the book is good. Goldie describes her childhood and all the way to the beginning of her career. After that it goes into a self-indulgent description of her love of India and her charity work. A couple of movie projects barely get a mention in passing. Most don't at all. I would have wanted to hear all about her movies with Steve Martin and so many other wonderful films (e.g. First Wives Clubs).
    The other stuff could have been placed in between like so many other stars have done. I, Rhoda is a great example.

    lerie Harper is finally ready to tell her story. In this, her first memoir, the beloved and award-winning television actress reflects on the role that made her famous -Rhoda Morgenstern on the groundbreaking series The Mary Tyler Moore Show and on the spin-off show Rhoda - and the pressures of helming her own sitcom, Valerie.

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

    I learned about Valerie and her famous Rhoda from Kathy Griffin's book (which is so good!). I had never seen Mary Tyler's show or Rhoda. I loved Valerie's story. It's very interesting and inspiring. Unlike Kathy's book, this book is not packed with jokes, it's just interesting to hear about someone trying so hard to get what they wanted. Her perseverance and her extremely positive attitude towards everything in her life are very admirable. It did make me regret not knowing abut her when she performed in so many wonderful plays. I would have loved to watch her in "Looped" or "The Tale of the Allergist's wife"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I, Rhoda?

    When she gets the part for Rhoda


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to mention


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Just get it
