Boisterous, ribald, and ultimately shattering, Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest has left an indelible mark on the literature of our time. Turning conventional notions of sanity and insanity on their heads, the novel tells the unforgettable story of a mental ward and its inhabitants, especially tyrannical Big Nurse Ratched and Randle Patrick McMurphy, the brawling, fun-loving new inmate who resolves to oppose her.
I really enjoyed this book. It really shows how far some one will go to be the winner. I also really enjoyed John C Reilly's narration. I cant believe this was how mental illness was treated at one time. This one will stay with me.
They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.
Stephen King is a true master. I read this book years ago and I remember be so scared but didnt want put it down. Steven Weber does great with narration and his different voices for the characters. Still gives the chills, and I will always dislike clowns.
“Are you there, Satan? It’s me, Madison,” declares the whip-tongued 13-year-old narrator of Damned, Chuck Palahniuk’s subversive new work of fiction. The daughter of a narcissistic film star and a billionaire, Madison is abandoned at her Swiss boarding school over Christmas, while her parents are off touting their new projects and adopting more orphans. She dies over the holiday of a marijuana overdose—and the next thing she knows, she’s in Hell.
I liked this book. Kinda reminded me of Are you there God its me Margaret gor adults.
As the youngest of the five Walsh girls, Helen has had a tough time finding her way in the world. At 33, her job as a private investigator has proven less than fruitful and after losing her apartment, she’s moved back in with Mammy Walsh. In desperation, Helen takes on a case to locate the missing member of a once wildly popular boy band. The only hitch is that she has to work with her ex-boyfriend.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Helen Walsh was great. I love her sarcasm and her no nonsense attitude. It was finally great to have her as the star of the story.
What does Caroline Lennon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Excellent narration, she seem to capture the spirit of each character. She could read the phone book and I would listen.
Any additional comments?
Love most books by Marian Keyes. Especially any of the stories of the Walsh sisters. Like I said earlier I am so glad she finally did a story about Helen.

Any additional comments?
I really enjoy Marian Keyes books. I have been a long time fan and wish audible would have some of her earlier books. This book was very hard to follow and the narrator was the worst. Her voice was way to high pitched or something, Not a her best and didn't even finish listening to the whole story.
Meet artist Rosemary Hall and follow her inevitable downfall brought by her lust for the famous Dorian Gray - a tale both familiar and new in this brilliant erotic mash-up of one of the world’s most beloved novels. With a mix of old fashioned Victorian debauchery and erotic 21st-century lust this cleverly sexed-up classic will leave you wanting more!
Would you listen to Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray again? Why?
Yes. It was an interesting take on the story and shocking at the same time. I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to see what would happen next.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades of Dorian Gray?
I think the ending had to be the most memorable. You saw it coming but you still couldn't believe it happened.
What three words best describe Bruce Mann’s performance?
Not so much. I really didn't feel his narration did the story justice. Some times it was quite annoying
