    When actress Claudia Christian flees a troubled childhood and moves to Hollywood at age 17, she steps through the looking glass into another world. From the set of Dallas to her starring role on the sci-fi series Babylon 5, Claudia's affairs with billionaires, supermodels, rock stars, and celebrities are mixed with shootings, stalking, heartbreak, and betrayal. Hollywood life takes its toll on Claudia as she descends into alcohol addiction and a desperate battle to reclaim her life.

    Would you listen to Babylon Confidential again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen to it again. The story was compelling...but, in the end, Christian came off as self-serving and her "solution" to sobriety seemed to be an infomercial.


    Would you recommend Babylon Confidential to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, for easy reading/listening, and compelling story. But not if you're looking for something deep.

    Ellen O’Farrell is a bit unusual. She’s a hypnotherapist. She’s never met her father. And she can’t seem to keep a relationship going. (Okay, that’s more normal that we want to admit.) When Ellen meets Patrick, she’s hopeful nevertheless. But when he says he needs to tell her something, she fears the worst. When Patrick reveals that his ex-girlfriend is stalking him, Ellen thinks, "Is that all?" She’s more intrigued than frightened. She’d love to meet her. What she doesn’t know is that she already has.

    After 27 years of marriage and three children, Anna Oh - wife, mother, outsider artist - has fallen in love with Viveca, the wealthy Manhattan art dealer who orchestrated her success. They plan to wed in the Oh family’s hometown of Three Rivers in Connecticut. But the wedding provokes some very mixed reactions and opens a Pandora’s Box of toxic secrets - dark and painful truths that have festered below the surface of the Ohs' lives.

    Where does We Are Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As good as the best audiobooks I've listened to, if not better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lamb's characters emerge into the story at first as separate pieces of a puzzle. Slowly and subtly, these characters, their backgrounds, and their relationships to others are revealed, creating an intricately enmeshed cast and a compelling story. Very well done.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Orien Oh


    If you could take any character from We Are Water out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Orien Oh
