    Twenty years ago, Allie Denty was the pretty one and her best friend Olivia Pelham was the smart one. Throughout high school, they were inseparable...until a vicious rumor about Olivia - a rumor too close to the truth - ended their friendship. Now, on the eve of their 20th high school reunion, Allie, a temp worker, finds herself suddenly single, a little chubby, and feeling old.

    "Too light"
    Overall

    I was looking for something light....unfortunately this story was too light in that it was completely predictable. You knew exactly what was going to happen, and the characters were unbelievable. Seriously, Ali is 38 and has been friends with Noah since middle school and has no clue he has feelings for her? The author should have stuck with the flashbacks where the characters felt more real and published as a YA book.

    The Story Sisters charts the lives of three sisters, Elv, Claire, and Meg. Each has a fate she must meet alone: one on a country road, one in the streets of Paris, and one in the corridors of her own imagination. Inhabiting their world are a charismatic man who cannot tell the truth, a neighbor who is not who he appears to be, a clumsy boy in Paris who falls in love and stays there, a detective who finds his heart's desire, and a demon who will not let go.

    L. Calder says: "Another great Hoffman story but not the narrator"
    "Different"
    Overall

    That is the best way to describe this book. At first I was a little confused about the time period, and that made it hard to follow. Then when the internet was mentioned that helped. I gave it 3 stars because I did listen all the way through (mainly due to the narrator) but not sure I would recommend this audio book. If I had been reading rather than listening to the book, I think I would have abandoned it.

  • Memoirs of a Geisha

    Story

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    Stephanie says: "Best Book in a while"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    I have never written a review, but felt I must for this one. It is a compelling story beautifully narrated. I have listened to this story more than once, and will surely listen to it again. Well worth the time and money.
