    Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life - dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge - he follows.

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

    A better story


    What was most disappointing about John Green’s story?

    There was virtually no story. Characters were unrealistic, and the ending was not worth getting to.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I thought the narration was fairly good. One character was a little over the top vocally


    What character would you cut from Paper Towns?

    Ben


    Any additional comments?

    I had such high hopes, because I thought The Fault in Our Stars, was one of the 10 best books I can remember reading/listening to. Still, one masterpiece is more than most authors can hope for.

    Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he’s a master of his profession. But one career simply can’t support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife’s fledgling art gallery. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that’s been lost since World War II - and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft.

    What did you like best about Headhunters? What did you like least?

    There were some interesting twists. There was nobody to really root for and a fairly simple story reall dragged on.


    Would you recommend Headhunters to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Any Harry Hole novel is much better and I believe better written.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Jo, stick to Harry Hole.

    The first book in an original mystery series featuring 28-year-old Veronica Mars, back in action after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    If you could sum up Veronica Mars in three words, what would they be?

    Very solid story


    What other book might you compare Veronica Mars to and why?

    I can't say any specific book, but it's a mystery with solid characters and would appeal to fans and non "Marshmallows" alike


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

    Her voicing of the characters is fantastic. All her inflections are perfect keeps your attention throughout. She is able to make each character distinctive and believable.


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

    Yes. And I did on a trip to Atlanta, which flew by


    Any additional comments?

    There is absolutely no doubt that this could and should be an ongoing series.
    I wondered if the lack of Logan Echols being around was that Rob Thomas wasn't ready to write any intimate scenes involving Veronica. I think this would be an interesting question for him.
