    Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is quietly recovering from injuries sustained on his latest case when a rich doctor's baby is kidnapped and his peace is shattered. As suspicion builds that the doctor may have staged the baby’s disappearance, the relationship between the doctor and his wife and neighbors begins to disintegrate.

    Story
    What was most disappointing about Brian Freeman’s story?

    The beginning was just not believable, and then it moved to a garroting which was disgusting. A policewoman getting lost and forgetting her cellphone is not credible.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Mechanically narrated.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Story
    (336)

    When Pippa Dunn, adopted as an infant and raised terribly British, discovers that her birth parents are from the American South, she finds that "culture clash" has layers of meaning she'd never imagined. Meet The English American, a fabulously funny, deeply poignant debut novel that sprang from Alison Larkin's autobiographical one-woman show of the same name.

    Michael says: "Outstanding"

    Would you listen to The English American again? Why?

    I would - it is very entertaining, and the author/narrator is so charming!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Both the English/American view, as well as the adoption view (I have an adopted daughter). Thoughtfully insightful - wonderful.


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

    Her excitement, charm and personality.


    Who was the most memorable character of The English American and why?

    Alison!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!

    Story

    Jeannette Walls's memoir The Glass Castle was "nothing short of spectacular" (Entertainment Weekly). Now, in Half Broke Horses, she brings us the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant.

    Kathryn says: "A BETTER BOOK THAN "THE GLASS CASTLE""
    "What a miserable story"
