    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    What made the experience of listening to Wild the most enjoyable?

    The description of Cheryl's journey along the PCT was terrific, and the reader is excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cheryl, obviously. I enjoyed her journey through life as well as her journey along the PCT.


    Have you listened to any of Bernadette Dunne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    Yes - I loved it.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book, particularly if you are interested in hiking any of the national trails. I've done some hiking, and can relate to the Monster backpack. Obviously, you would not want to use this book as a guide and you'd want to be much more prepared than Cheryl, but it's a fun book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Bring back the original narrator. What happened to gruff Harry Bosch. Narrator was awful.


    What could Michael Connelly have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He didn't do anything wrong. It was the narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Bring back the original narrator, or at least get one that sounds like Harry.


    Any additional comments?

    I won't buy another Bosch book with this narrator.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    I bought this because some of the reviews said this book was better than the last couple. It isn't. It's the same thing over and over again. Loved the humor in the earlier books but it's just getting old. I listened to about an hour, then skipped to the last 5 minutes or so. That was enough for me. I won't be purchasing Eighteen (if there is one).
