    The new novel from the best-selling author of I Don’t Know How She Does It takes us on an unforgettable journey into first love, and—with the emotional intensity and penetrating wit that have made her beloved among readers all over the world—reminds us of how the ardor of our youth can ignite our adult lives.

    Story

    I wanted to hear a good story, but did not get very far. Once bad four-letter-words are introduced in a story I quit listening. That's why I love John Grisham.

    During the height of the blizzard of 1978, the tanker Global Hope floundered on the shoals off the Massachusetts coast. The Coast Guard dispatched a patrol boat, but was soon in as much trouble as the tanker. Then pilot boat captain Frank Quirk, hearing of the Coast Guard's troubles on his radio, decided to act.

    Story

    I read the reviews about this book and some were not very nice. But I listened to it anyway and enjoyed it very much. If accents are not exact and places are not pronounced correctly, it doesn't really matter. What matters is learning about the lives of all these people and what they endured. And not forgetting this story. This story reminds me to tell people in my life everyday that I love them. That is what is important. At the end of this recording the author tells how he came to write this story, very moving.

    Story

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Story

    Grisham can do no wrong in my eyes. I enjoyed the performance very much and loved the humor in the story. He cannot write fast enough for me. What a good movie this will make. What's next?

    Paris, July 1942: Sarah, a 10 year-old girl, is arrested with her family by the French police in the Vel' d'Hiv' roundup, but not before she locks her younger brother in a cupboard in the family's apartment, thinking that she will be back within a few hours.

    Story

    The performance was well done. But it was just such a dark and sad story. I was waiting for something good to happen. There were brief moments of hope, but not enough. I do admit that it was a dark time in history and I did learn something new about France's involvement in WWII.

But his favorite friend is Old Timer, the prospector who shares hot biscuits and calls him Bright Angel. One day Old Timer doesn't answer Brighty's loud "Eeeee-aw!" Instead, the friendly animal encounters a ruthless claim jumper. Will Brighty be able to bring the killer to justice and make the wilderness safe again?

    I have not read or listened to a Marguerite Henry book yet that I have not totally enjoyed. Brighty is such a cool donkey. Many lessons can be learned from Brighty.

    Loved it. I liked that it included history. Such a good horse and human(s) story. It reminded me of Smokey the Cow Horse. I totally enjoyed this book. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Could not stop listening"
    Overall

    Seabiscuit was one of the best books I have read. Unbroken was excellent too. I had never heard of this story and feel that I would have really missed out if I had not heard it. Excellent!!

    Throughout her life, Alexandra Penney's worst fear was becoming a bag lady. Even as she worked several jobs while raising a son as a single mother, wrote a multimillion-dollar best-selling advice book, and became editor in chief of Self magazine, she was haunted by the image of herself alone, bankrupt, and living on the street. And then, one day, that's exactly what happened.

    Mary says: "Brie with that Whine?"
    "Offensive Language"
    Overall

    I did not make it past the first 15 minutes becasue the language was so offensive. She could have been so clever in using the English language to get across her anger, but she chose not to.
