    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Into the Darkest Corner the most enjoyable?

    This is the best thriller I have ever listened to. Of all the best writers of our day this book by Elizabeth Haynes puts them to shame. I wish this book could be put on the top of everyone's list of must reads.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I could not stop listening on the edge of my seat clear through the entire book. As an avid reader I have not had a book keep me engaged so thoroughly as this story. I will listen to this book many times again. I wanted to jump right into the book and take part in the story.


    What about David Thorpe and Karen Cass ’s performance did you like?

    Karen Cass does an amazing job portraying this woman's story. David Thorpe comes in only when needed which is perfect.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Prepare yourself to forget the popcorn and soda as you will be in the movie yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    I just picked this book out of thin air but I wish I could tell everyone that loves thrilling books to read this one.

    Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I will recommend this book to my friends as I really enjoyed the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Liane Moriarty took her characters through interesting twists and turns. Then she brings it all together and makes you look at life through different eyes.


    Which character – as performed by Caroline Lee – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the husband who wrote the secret letter. You felt for him and what he went through and how you ended up feeling about him in the end.


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

    This book did make me laugh and cry. The characters feel like real people you know and you feel like you are there with them.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this book so much I have listened to it three times already and plan on listening to it again and again.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book as it was funny, a mystery, and an enjoyable listen


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Dresden the main hero.


    Have you listened to any of James Marsters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I loved his performance and have never heard him before. I do not think the book would be as good without his way of talking. I really enjoyed the way he read the book and glad I was able to listen instead of reading it myself.


    Any additional comments?

    I just bought the book because of the price and did not expect much but instead I got a great book that I really enjoyed and will listen to it again.

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Real-life stories of out-of-body experiences, encountering a special light, greeters from the afterlife, life reviews, tunnels, and 360-degree vision - are all part of this intriguing look at near-death experiences (NDEs) by one of the world's noted authorities, P.M.H. Atwater. Atwater shares her amazing findings, based on her sessions with more than 4,000 adults and children, and over 40 years of research; a breathtaking culmination to a successful and controversial career.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "Surprising good story."

    What did you love best about The Good House?

    Being raised by an alcoholic mother, I did not expect to love this character but I did. This is a great story that makes you love this woman even with what she does. Hearing the book from her perspective is a new and wonderful experience. The fact that she does not see her drinking in the same way as her daughters and friends was very interesting.

    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.

    I put off reading this book for quite awhile because I lived through those years and did not want to be reminded of the wrongs that white people did to black people. I finally listened to the book and was hooked from the beginning. I loved the fact that different people read the story and put their own mark on the characters. They did a great job and I continue to listen to it over and over again. Great book.
