    "Unintelligible"

    This book is so ridiculously hard to understand in my car that I couldn't listen to it.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Herve Bronnimann says: "My Favorite Audiobook so far"
    "Heartbreaking"
    Overall

    This is a very unique concept, much more interesting than I had anticipated, having downloaded it on a friend's recommendation. The author's time-traveling plot is fascinating and I found myself often thinking about it when I wasn't listening to it. I cried at the end, but it was a wonderful book.

    Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

    Karen says: "Clever and interesting."
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I'm not sure whether it's the main character's whine or just that the story is boring, but I stop listening after about 2/3 of the book because I just couldn't care about the outcome and haven't been able to bring myself to go back to it.

    Story
    (321)

    At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle.

    Shelly says: "Need tissues for this one"
    "Annoying background music"
    Overall

    Periodically, there is low-sample-rate music played so loudly that it's difficult to hear the narrator. This went on for so long at the beginning of the book that I nearly abandoned it. The narrator isn't very expressive, though he seems to get better as the book goes on.

    Lucy is the first to find the secret of the wardrobe in the professor's mysterious old house. At first her brothers and sister don't believe her when she tells of her visit to the land of Narnia. But soon Edmund, then Peter and Susan step through the wardrobe themselves. In Narnia they find a country buried under the evil enchantment of the White Witch.

    Caitlin says: "Great audiobook!"
    "Volume very uneven"
    Overall

    The narrator's volume varies wildly between when he's reading description and when he's reading dialogue. I was constantly turning the volume to hear him while he narrated and then shuddering and turning it down when he started bellowing the dialogue at a painful volume.
