    The snow in the mountains was melting and Bunny had been dead for several weeks before we came to understand the gravity of our situation.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Grown up Bret East Easton fans would enjoy this book


    What could Donna Tartt have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The Ancient Greek culture allusions are sophomoric.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dona Tartt's vocal fry is affected and inappropriate for the reading of this book.


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

    I was disappointed that this book anywhere near the quality of Goldfinch in either scope or narration.

  • The Short Stories, Volume I

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 58 mins)
    • By Ernest Hemingway

    This definitive audio collection, read by Stacy Keach, traces the development and maturation of Hemingway's distinct and revolutionary storytelling style - from the plain bald language of his first story to his mastery of seamless prose that contained a spare, eloquent pathos, as well as a sense of expansive solitude. These stories showcase the singular talent of a master, the most important American writer of the 20th century.

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

    Brilliant book by brilliant author.


    What didn’t you like about Stacy Keach’s performance?

    Stacy Keach fades on many sentences, thus making it impossible to hear. This is particularly noticed in an automobile environment. The quiet passages are impossible to hear. This dynamic range is appropriate for the stage but NOT for reading a book. Narrow the dynamic range, Stacy, we are listening to Hemingway not you!
