    The Hartes and the Golds have been neighbors for 18 years and are very close. So when Chris and Emily's friendship reaches the next level, nobody is surprised. Then one night, the hospital calls. Seventeen-year-old Emily is dead - shot in the head by a gun Chris took from his father's cabinet. One bullet remains in the chamber, and Chris tells of his suicide pact with Emily. But the police have questions, and soon Chris is on trial for murder.

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

    Jodi is usually a very good writer however, for some reason this one did not grab my attention.


    What was most disappointing about Jodi Picoult’s story?

    I tried listening to it several times however, I could not finish it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?

    I don't think it was the narration as much as the story itself.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am not even sure I got a reaction out of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue to listen to Jodi however, maybe next time will look at a printed version first and see if it catches my eye.

    Story
    (959)

    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

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

    I think it needed more suspense and perhaps a bit more of what was going on in the lab and what other people knew about it and the consequences it would or could have


    What could Thomas Hager have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The narration was good but sometimes you can only do so much with the groceries they give you.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Again, he just needed some better writing to work with.


    What character would you cut from The Demon Under The Microscope?

    I am not sure since I did not listen all the way through


    Any additional comments?

    I love all books and if it has a good story line, good narration and easy to follow I will listen.
    Sometimes there just isnt much to follow
