    Shandi Pierce got pregnant when she was only 17 years old. She fell for her son - deeply, instantly, completely - but as she sat at the table feeding him, her own mother was sliding eggs and bacon onto her plate, feeding her. Now, four years later, Shandi is still more parented than parent. She lives with her mom, her dad pays her bills, and her best friend, Walcott, acts as her white knight. But Natty is no ordinary kid, and when his savant behavior catches the attention of an obsessive stranger, only Shandi sees the true menace.

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

    I would absolutely recommend this charming story. It was great as a stand-alone book, but even better as the prequel to Someone Else's Love Story, which I recommend so so highly! Such interesting and complex characters!

    Someone Else's Love Story is beloved and highly acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Joshilyn Jackson's funny, charming, and poignant novel about science and miracles, secrets and truths, faith and forgiveness; about falling in love, and learning that things aren't always what they seem - or what we hope they will be.

    What made the experience of listening to Someone Else's Love Story the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story and the characters felt so complex and real. The unexpected twists and turns the story took as events unfolded had me on the edge of my seat! Now that the book is over, I think I'm going to have to listen again soon because I grew quickly to care for these characters and I'm going to miss them terribly!


    What other book might you compare Someone Else's Love Story to and why?

    It felt a little bit like Between, Georgia, another excellent book by the same author.


    What about Joshilyn Jackson’s performance did you like?

    She is an awesome narrator! Good voices, accents!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book made me laugh, smile, and have misty eyes. In a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks, Joshilyn, for another masterpiece! You are truly a gifted writer and narrator! From a long time Kudzu reader BB.

  • Lonesome Dove

    Story
    (1695)

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."
    "Pointless, Depressing, Disappointing"
    Overall

    I really wanted to enjoy this book, and I did like the narrator and the adventures, although the violence was too much for my taste. What disappointed me was the depressing nature of everything. No character learned anything or grew in character or had anything positive happen to them AT ALL. I wasn't looking for a sappy happy ending, but EVERYONE just slogged through the book in misery, and were left in misery at the end. I did like Clara's last angry words to Captain Call, and I agreed with her completely. Call is the most cowardly and selfish character I have encountered in literature and didn't learn anything from his experiences. Although I really liked Gus, I hated Call. I kept hoping for something to tie everything together, some kind of redeeming event, but the book just ended abruptly and awkwardly. The characters were shallow and mostly stereotypical. I don't understand why this book gets high ratings from people.

    I really enjoyed this book and the marvelous narrator - as I always enjoy the books by Mary Balogh.
