    At seventeen, David "Lizard" Hochmeyer is nearly seven feet tall, a star quarterback, and Princeton-bound. His future seems all but assured until his parents are mysteriously murdered, leaving Lizard and his older sister, Kate, adrift and alone. In a mansion across the pond from their Connecticut home lives the world’s greatest ballerina, Sylphide, and her rock star husband, whose own disasters intersect with Lizard’s - and Kate’s - in the most intimate and surprising ways.

    Would you listen to Life Among Giants again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoyed the book but since I'm doing audio I'm actually repeating it to make sure I didn't miss anything.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Life Among Giants?

    When Lizard watched his parents being murdered.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Towards the end at the restaurant when they were all working together to catch their parents murders.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't cry but quite a few parts that made me laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    This book goes back and forth so you really have to be completely tuned in or you may miss something vital. Overall I liked the book and its wacky characters. Lizards family and all the secrets kept amongst them all made things a mystery. You could never really guess what was happening next.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    What did you like best about Reflected in You? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed the book but it needed a little more. The second book should be better than the first and this was just ok. Not bad but ok.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Could've been better


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

    I love audiobooks because it makes it more entertaining. I thought she did good.


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

    Definitely.
