    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

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

    I would recommend this book to many people! It is a wonderful no nonsense way of telling us how important it is to love ourselves first. Otherwise...no one can else can love us.


    Which character – as performed by Lauren Fortgang – was your favorite?

    Spoken in the first person, there is only one character but Lauren's voice is perfect for the attitude portrayed within the book!


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

    YES!! But alas it took me a couple of days....


    Any additional comments?

    I am very familiar with Lauren from other books she has narrated and I love her voice and intonation! She does the book justice! Rock on Lauren!

    In her 11th adventure, following Undead and Undetermined, Betsy’s up to her fangs in paranormal trouble. Still heartbroken over her friend Marc’s sacrifice, Betsy is further plagued by nagging suspicions that her half-sister Laura is up to no good. It seems that Laura has received an offer to assume her mother’s duties overseeing Hell - but only if she first kills Betsy.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    WOW....just listening to all the prattling going on in Betsy's head gave me a headache. She would just go on and on and on and on and there wasn't much "story" being told. She took way too much time filling in words that basically said nothing to get to the end result! ugh.... If I had not wanted to know what was going to happen, I would not have listened to the end. But the nonsense streaming out of her head got on my nerves! If I start talking about all the things I didn't like specifically it would give the plot allbeit weak! away.....


    Would you be willing to try another book from MaryJanice Davidson? Why or why not?

    I have read ALL of her Betsy books...but I don't know that I would read another one at this point. She is running out of ideas and needs to move on to another character.....


    What does Nancy Wu bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OH Nancy is great! Her voice has become Betsy. She does a good job changing character voices where you actually know who is talking without having to say it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I would have early on....but not now. No imagination in the way she has tied things up at the end. I am disappointed in where the story is now. There was alot of potential with the other characters but she is just making stuff up now....


    Any additional comments?

    I would NOT recommend this book. If someone I know is reading the series, then maybe....but it is not her best work. Sorry MaryJanice :-)

  • The Importance of Being Earnest: Free Performance

    This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, "that name which inspires absolute confidence." Wilde's effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

    The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English Crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate there's a living to be made, a living that can end swiftly by disease - or by dagger. For Captain Charles Hunter, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking, and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

    What did you like best about Pirate Latitudes? What did you like least?

    If you are looking for a staight story about a pirate expedition then this is the book for you. But if you are looking for Captain Jack Sparrow, you will be disappointed........

    I downloaded this story because it sounded intriquing. I like pirate stories but was unaware this one was supposedly based on a real


    Have you listened to any of John Bedford Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator did a good job giving the story some life and made it more interesting. I think I would have become bored with it as a regular book and perhaps not finished it.
    I have not listened to any of his other narrations but overall I did like him.


    Do you think Pirate Latitudes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no....there is nowhere for the story to go.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Stevon says: "good story"
    "Best Prey book in ages!!!"
    Overall

    I loved Wicked Prey! It goes back to the young days of Lucas and shows us the macho, handsome, lady's man he was before he got married!! I love Weather and his kids, but the dynamics of his decisions are very different now. This book was more like the earlier Prey books with the intensity of the young cops and his friends who ended up at the BCA with him. I recommend highly!!!!!
