    Grammy Nominee for Best Spoken Word Album
    Mirabelle, the "shopgirl" behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus, is slightly lost, off-kilter, and shy. But there's something about Mirabelle. Steve Martin reads this charming novella. Hear an interview with the author and browse more Martin.

    Overall

    This was a depressing and disappointing.

    Exuberant and touching, La Cucina is a magical evocation of life's mysterious seasons and the treasures found in each one. It celebrates family, food, passion, and the eternal rapture of romance.

    Brimming with humor, wisdom, and honesty, and the drama and local color of the mountain life from Virginia to Italy, Big Cherry Holler is a deeply felt, brilliantly evoked story of two lovers who have lost their way, and their struggle to find each other again.

    Patti says: "Lacking Something"
    "Good Listening"
    Overall

    Had mixed emotions on this one. A bit weaker stories than the others.

    When Ave Maria Mulligan, a thirty-five-year-old self-proclaimed spinster, discovers a skeleton in her family closet, her quiet life begins to unravel. Comic and compassionate, Big Stone Gap is the story of a woman who thinks life has passed her by, only to learn that the best is yet come. Don't miss the sequel Big Cherry Holler.

    Molly says: "Warm, Familiar, and Funny"
    "Enjoyed"
    Overall

    You need to follow the books in sequence to sometimes understand some of the characters. Otherwise, I had a great time listening.

    Lucia becomes an apprentice to a designer at B. Altman's department store on Fifth Avenue. Engaged to her childhood sweetheart, she is torn when she meets a handsome stranger who promises a life of uptown luxury that girls like her only read about in the society pages.

    A note from the author: The older I get, the more I find all I'm really interested in doing is talking, laughing, and eating - not necessarily in that order, but always those three things. Over and over again. The one thing that didn't make this list was cooking. I love food (truly and passionately) and food always tastes better with friends, and especially when cooked by friends. So, I thought it was finally time to spill the beans and share the recipes.

    There are so many things that made sense and I just couldn't stop laughing! Had a great time listening!

    The Sweet Potato Queens like men. They like them so much that they have devoted an absolutely inordinate amount of time to the pursuit of men, marriage, and great sex. And then, when that doesn't work out, they've devoted an inordinate amount of time to divorce, getting another man, and having great sex with him instead.

    Kaeli says: "Can't live with 'em, might as well laugh"
    "Great!"

    I haven't been disappointed yet...!

    Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious look at American government.

    "High Expectations"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of Jon's TV show on Comedy Central, but for some reason, this lost some of his charm, insights and comedic humor. Maybe I was expecting more than I should have, but I felt that I was missing something....

    It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same.

    I couldn't stop. I had to listen from beginning to end.

    This best selling audio program has revolutionized the way men and women talk and listen to each other - at home, at work, and wherever the communications gap between the sexes can lead to troublesome misunderstandings.

    I was looking forward to something new, insightful and different. Not.
