    In this gripping first novel, a young girl, orphaned when her mother murders an ex-lover, endures the shuffle of a foster child's life. Oprah enjoyed her book club pick so much that she narrates the audiobook edition!

    What did you love best about White Oleander?

    The story was fabulous but Oprah reading it added so much to it for me, sometimes I didn't even recognize her voice, I loved it so much. Great, great read.


    What other book might you compare White Oleander to and why?

    no comparison


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

    Her own take on the characters, bringing them to life. It was truely fabulous


    If you could take any character from White Oleander out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I'll come back to this one. It wouldn't be so much any of the characters but Oprah and then to talk about the book and the parts we liked/disliked etc.


    Any additional comments?

    I have yet to have a bad read from any of the audible books regardless of author or reader.

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    If you could sum up Lisey's Story in three words, what would they be?

    This was not the normal Stephen King book until later on. It was great though. Really enjoyed the read.


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

    No first time I've listened to Mare Winninham, although I love her acting. She did all the characters really well, I liked hearing the difference in her voice for each one. It never really ever sounded like her or how I"ve heard her sound on TV, but it was really great.

    Thrown from the wreckage of his '74 Camaro, Paul Sheldon, author of a best-selling series of historical romances, wakes up one day in a secluded Colorado farmhouse owned by Annie Wilkes, a psychotic ex-nurse who claims she is his number one fan. Immobilized from the pain of two shattered legs and a crushed knee, Sheldon is at Annie's mercy.

    Where does Misery rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've read Misery in hard copy at least 3 times, listening to audiobook performance was absolutely wonderful. I would rank Misery in the top 10 audiobooks I've listened to.


    What other book might you compare Misery to and why?

    there is no comparison really, John Grisham is John Grisham as is Michael Connelly himself, there is no comparison to Steven King and any of his novels, he stands alone as well. Great author, my favorite of all time. No complaints about any of his books.


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

    She put a real voice to this story although I kept picturing Kathy Bates who played in the movie and James Caan, but this was great


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

    oh yes, even though as I have stated I have read Misery at least 3 times, this was better, couldn't wait to listen again and again.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15250)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you listen to 11-22-63 again? Why?

    This is the best book I have listened to by far. Craig Wasson did a wonderful job narrating this story. I was caught up in every word and loved the way Craig changed his voice to match the characters. Best book ever for Stephen King and I have read them all. Thanks Audible, Stephen King and Craig Wasson for a truly wonderful experience.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stephen King brings all his characters to life, you feel what they feel, you smell what they smell, you cry when they cry so I have no absolute favs in this story, they were all great.


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

    No this is the first time hearing Craig Wasson but I will definitely listen to his narration again.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This story held me captive thru the entire story, I did laugh out loud, cry, cringe, and easily put myself right there with the characters


    Any additional comments?

    Being in the 5th grade on 11/22/63 I knew what happened already of course but loved the way Stephen King had done his research and made this whole story absolutely believable. I really do wish there was a "rabbit hole" to travel back in time........that's the great thing about Stephen King, it all seems plausible and possible.
