    L. Frank Baum's timeless classic The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was the first uniquely American fairy tale. A combination of enchanting fantasy and piercing social commentary, this remarkable story has entertained and beguiled readers of all ages since it was first published in 1900.

    Ray Bradbury wrote in his Introduction, "Both [Baum and Shakespeare] lived inside their heads with a mind gone wild with wanting, wishing, hoping, shaping, dreaming."

    What did you like best about The Wonderful Wizard of Oz? What did you like least?

    The book is quite different from the book. I enjoyed the movie much more. And Brooke Shield's is terrible at the narration. She was almost comical, but not in a good way.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Shields and Paul Rudd ?

    Paul Rudd for the entire novel. Brooke Shields was terrible.

    (14608)

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    "Great Book, not so great ending"

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

    The book was great, so many twists and turns. Everytime I thought I knew what was going to happen, something the complete opposite would happen. But I was hoping for a different ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Girl?

    Finding out what really happened to Amy.


    What does Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Animation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes
