    Twenty-nine-year-old Sophie Diehl is happy toiling away as a criminal law associate at an old line New England firm where she very much appreciates that most of her clients are behind bars. Everyone at Traynor, Hand knows she abhors face-to-face contact, but one weekend, with all the big partners away, Sophie must handle the intake interview for the daughter of the firm's most important client....

    Susan C. S. says: "Singularly unsuited for audio."

  • The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House

    Story
    (19)

    In The Stranger, NBC Chief White House Correspondent Chuck Todd draws upon his unprecedented inner-circle sources to create a gripping account of Obama's tumultuous White House years. In doing so, not only does Todd give us the most revealing portrait yet of this fascinating president and his struggles, but illuminates what "Obamism" really is, what the president stands for, and how his decisions have changed - and will change - American politics for generations.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Why is he writing this? He has so little new to report. And so dull.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    A few interesting tidbits that are then used to imagine if only they hadn't happened, Obama's presidency could have been so much better.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Chuck Todd’s performances?

    Horrible reading. I kept lowering the volume. Just one word after another, all fast, same forceful tone. The few times he varies his tone and speed, it is such a relief. Why didn't he use a professional?


    Could you see The Stranger: Barack Obama in the White House being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Big disappointment. Boring.
