    Pat Conroy is without doubt America's favorite storyteller, a writer who portrays the anguished truth of the human heart and the painful secrets of families in richly lyrical prose and unforgettable narratives. Now, in Beach Music, he tells of the dark memories that haunt generations, in a story that spans South Carolina and Rome and reaches back into the unutterable terrors of the Holocaust.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The story is wonderful, I have read it in print years ago....but the narrator was terrible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Pat Conroy novels and this one is not an exception...


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He is horribly monotoned and I was not able to follow the change in characters at all! The story became one blob of monologue!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration because I knew the story to be a great one, I just could not make myself stick with it with this narrator! I wasted my money on this one.

  • Death Angel: Alexandra Cooper, Book 15

    Story
    (114)

    With Death Angel, Fairstein takes listeners into the storied history of New York's Central Park as Assistant DA Alex Cooper and Detective Mike Chapman race to track down a serial killer before yet another young woman is found dead. Is the body found in the Ramble the first victim of a deranged psychopath, or are other missing women in years past whose remains have never been found connected to this savage attack? Is this enormous urban park a sanctuary in the middle of the city - or is it a hunting ground for a killer with a twisted mind?

    Mary Mallon was a courageous, headstrong Irish immigrant woman who bravely came to America alone, fought hard to climb up from the lowest rung of the domestic service ladder, and discovered in herself an uncanny, and coveted, talent for cooking. Working in the kitchens of the upper class, she left a trail of disease in her wake, until one enterprising and ruthless "medical engineer" proposed the inconceivable notion of the "asymptomatic carrier" - and from then on Mary Mallon was a hunted woman.

    I enjoyed every bit of this book! The narrator does a fabulous job with Mary's accent and defining all the characters! I really recommend this book!
