    British couple Andrew and Sarah O'Rourke, vacationing on a Nigerian beach in a last-ditch effort to save their faltering marriage, come across Little Bee and her sister, Nigerian refugees fleeing from machete-wielding soldiers intent on clearing the beach. The horrific confrontation that follows changes the lives of everyone involved in unimaginable ways.

    "so so"
    Overall

    I found the narration nearly unbearable. The words were dragging from her mouth as if tethered to a massive weight. The ethnic accents were laughable. The story itself was somewhat engaging but I wasn't overly impressed...

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"

    A must read.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK!"
    Overall

    I became completely lost in this book! I cannot remember the last time a book moved me in this way. The writing is excellent but the narration provides the icing on the cake! I appreciate the authors dignified portrayal of strong women daring to challenge the status quo. As an African American woman, it is refreshing to see the characterization of Black women from that era as intelligent and complex, not simply cardboard caricatures purveying the same ol' stereotypes. The story telling is honest and authentic. I cannot praise Ms. Stockett enough for her efforts. I feel like I know each of the characters personally and miss them like long lost friends. "The Help" is enjoyable on so many levels-a definite must-read!

    Story

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "too long"
    Overall

    Fairly engaging but too long. characters were stereotypical and stale. Steven King is trapped in a rut and is recycling characters and themes. I was dying to get to the end, not out of curiosity (the ending was predictable) but because of sheer exhaustion.
