    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    "Average story, below average performance"

    A Russian, world-class skater wants to defect to the U.S., so solicits help from an U.S. skater. The male half of a Russian skating team solicits help from the female half of a U.S. team, while their respective partners express jealousy. Circumstances allow the defector and his new friend to leave a competition and race the defector to U.S. authorities. I will not go into much more since I don't want to spoil the story for others.

    Before beginning this book, I completed two very well written and performed books, so perhaps my expectations were too high; but, I found this story slow in the beginning and disappointing when it did pick up in pace. I expected more action as the two traveled across the U.S., but not much happened - they even stopped to play tourists. The plot is not particularly original, but I did like what little the author included about the skating world. The romance aspects were fine and the protagonists had sweet natures that I liked, but the author's love for clichés had me wincing at times. Some phrases were used so frequently that I could cite them along with the reader.

    The book's promising aspects were harmed by the reader's stiff performance. The reader handled accents fairly well, but she emphasized the wrong words in sentences and often sounded as though she was 'reading' rather than performing. Overall, I found the reader distracting.

    I cannot recommend this book, but neither can I warn you not to listen. It's just average.
