    Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: she taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of 31. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with.

But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome - the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells 10 to one.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

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

    I'm not sure why people are rating this so highly. I personally find that listening to the suffering of others is depressing, especially when it's fiction. I found nothing meaningful about this book, nor did it open my perception to anything. Dark and depressing, I don't plan to read any others by this author.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret.

    i was tempted multiple times to bail out on this book. i'm glad i didn't because i loved the way it all came together in the end. the first half could have been shortened significantly, but oh well!

    The rapist left an indelible mark on their lives; now three women must live with the consequences of his violent brutality. But when he's murdered on his way to trial, the police investigation takes a scorching new focus. All three women had a reason to hate him. All three wanted him dead. But which one of them murdered him? Explosively plotted and unnervingly suspenseful, The Survivors Club sizzles from beginning to end.

    Kathleen says: "Wow! Get this one!"
    "just ok"
    Overall

    This was my first book by this author and i wasn't terribly impressed. the plot dragged a bit and even though there were some twists and turns, it just wasn't all together that interesting. not recommended.

    I liked the narrators voice - easy to listen to. The story line at first seemed predictable but turned out to have some nice twists and turns - didn't end the way i would have expected. Very entertaining and couldn't wait to get back into my car to listen. Recommended.

    i really enjoyed this book. Bryson has unique but funny sense of humor and there's always a good story behind anyone willing to challenge themselves to a new and uncertain experience. People evolve through journeys like these - so be open to it!

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    This is such a beautiful book. Anyone who's had any challenges with life and relationships can appreciate her journey through them. It's about finding peace and happiness within yourself and what you want out of life. The universe provides when you are open to it. I enjoyed her narration as well. Highly recommended.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela says: "Excellent spy tale"
    "worth your while"
    Overall

    I had no idea what to expect from this book. it was really good - very good descriptions of characters and environments. If you like mystery, murder, humor and all that cool CIA agent stuff - i'd recommend it. good read.
