    Guerrieri is asked to handle the appeal of Fabio Paolicelli, sentenced to 16 years for smuggling drugs. Paolicelli intially confessed to the crime, and everything seems stacked against the appeal. Guerrieri's reluctance to take on the case is intensified by the fact that he knows Paolicelli, and it is only the intervention of Paolicelli's beautiful wife, Natsu, that finally overcomes Guerrieri's reluctance.

    If you could sum up Reasonable Doubts in three words, what would they be?

    An enriching experience.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Enjoyed the intricacies of the law and how it was used.


    Any additional comments?

    A highly moral undertaking.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    The narration is excellent. The story is compelling. I could not stop listening - even deep into my sleep time. However, it is not a book for the faint of heart.

    Marian is determined to be ordinary. She lays her head gently on the shoulder of her serious fiancé and quietly awaits marriage. But she didn't count on an inner rebellion that would rock her stable routine, and her digestion. Marriage a la mode, Marian discovers, is something she literally can't stomach ... The Edible Woman is a funny, engaging novel about emotional cannibalism, men and women, and desire to be consumed.

    Experience could not have been nearly as great without the perfect narration. Thank you for this insight into life's realities!

    Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is 12, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

    Excellent writing and well performed!!
    However Anthony Doerr should have shaved back his ending to 1944/45.
    I miss it!
