    Story
    What did you love best about The Kid?

    The humor. Good to know someone who shares my sense of humor.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I didn't always agree with Mr. Savage but his story held my interest and in spite of my opinion on gay adoption I found myself rooting for this couple and their quest to get a 'kid'.


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

    Wonderful speaker. It was like sitting across from a friend. The intonations and irony were priceless.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That honesty and sincerity outrank sexual orientation.


    Any additional comments?

    I was curious as to what Dan and Terry looked like because Dan's own descriptions are less than flattering. But they're two very handsome men who met all my expectations! You can't come away from this story without liking each of them personally.

    >The Chaperone is a captivating novel about the woman who chaperoned an irreverent Louise Brooks to New York City in 1922, and the summer that would change them both. Only a few years before becoming a famous actress and an icon for her generation, a 15-year-old Louise Brooks leaves Wichita to make it big in New York. Much to her annoyance, she is accompanied by a thirty-six-year-old chaperone who is neither mother nor friend. Cora Carlisle is a complicated but traditional woman with her own reasons for making the trip.

    Amanda says: "Perfection."
    "Don't just read it. Experience it!"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Chaperone the most enjoyable?

    You couldn't convince me that while I listening to the story that I wasn't there! In fact, when Cora met the German for an orange soda, I pictured them seated at a small round table with 'wire' backed chairs.........and that's exactly what it was! That was an eerie feeling!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I got a kick out of Louise because I've known girls exactly like her and have myself owned many of her traits. But Cora was my favorite because of her learned ability to adapt to any situation with relative ease.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene was laid out so well that I was actually sitting in the coupe while waiting for it to stop raining! Usually I have to get well into a book before I know where I am and what I'm supposed to be thinking.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Chaperone and why?

    I couldn't pick just one. Each character vividly came to life for me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're at all interested in buying this book, don't hesitate! It was worth it and I WILL listen to it again.
