    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    What did you love best about Broken Harbor?

    The characters


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

    Yes, by sympathizing with every character it was difficult to guess who was capable of what.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Hogan – was your favorite?

    I liked all of them. Richie and his outfits were funny.


    Any additional comments?

    All of Tana French's books are great reads my favorite is The likeness.

    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?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "I was sad when it ended."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

    I've only heard the audio.


    What other book might you compare Gone Girl to and why?

    Nothing, it is in a league of its own.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to choose.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Do you really know who you married?


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a mind f---. It is a twisted psychological thriller that makes you feel less sane after reading. The narrators were fantastic and the writing amazing.

    Headstrong, high-spirited, and already widowed, Isabella Walker became Mrs. Henry Robinson at age 31 in 1844. Isabella chose to record her innermost thoughts - and especially her infatuation with a married Dr. Edward Lane - in her diary. One day Henry chanced on the diary and, broaching its privacy, read Isabella's entries. Aghast at his wife's perceived infidelity, Henry petitioned for divorce on the grounds of adultery. The trial would be a cause célèbre, threatening the foundations of Victorian society.

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

    Real first person diary narratives. It was too subjective, someone narrating the history, than a small excerpt from a diary.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kate Summerscale again?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She sounded older than the character.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mrs. Robinson's Disgrace?

    Listing the price of everything, houses, dresses etc. it was like a tax audit.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not finish the book. I tried to exchange for another one but it didn't work . I recently just found out about this a week ago and exchanged all the books I didn't finish/like narrator etc. so I am guessing there is a limit.
