I especially liked this book as I can relate to the struggle to support yourself on a low wage, no benefits, job. Also the author narrated herself, and normally that doesn't work well but in this case, she did a superb job. I would recommend this entertaining story with a positive ending.

It was so good that I couldn't put it down so finished it in 2 days. Fun storyline and great narration. Can't wait for the next one! I have enjoyed some of Paul Henke's previous books which all have fun, well developed characters. Narrator William L Sturdevant makes the audiobook so absorbing with his clever portrayal of the various characters. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

So good that I couldn't put it down and finished it in 1 day. Must recommend for the funny parts and a few sad, but Karamo pulls it all together.

I had a great time listening to this book and am very excited for the next in the series. I love Sci-Fi anyway and this had a good story line that kept me wanting more. I had become so engrossed that I finished it in 2 days and was sad when it ended. The narrator was an excellent choice. I would recommend this book as a fun read and I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Paul Alan

If you ever wondered how these driven men succeed in life, I would recommend you listen to Elon Musk's biography. My takeaway was that he did not let failure stop him from forging onward and trying new things. He is a man of many ideas and like a golden child, everything he touches seems to (eventually) turn successful. He is intensely loved or hated but is mostly respected by those who know and work for him.

somewhat analytical recounting of Marie Curies' life, and definitely too short. There is so much more to her story and I would love to listen to a longer biography. It was (and still is) hard for an intelligent, driven woman to compete with her male peers and to buck the conventional belief that she was made to procreate and that is where her main goal should remain.

Jacob is funny in his delivery of those moments where he has been most vulnerable. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It has much to offer to a wide audience so yes, take a chance and get to know him.

This is definitely a book you don't want to put down until finished. I would recommend this book if you ever wondered about what it is like to live with parental mental illness and this story throws in so much more as you consider the resilience of the survivor.

It is so easy to stand back and give advice to someone who is experiencing depression, especially if we have never experienced it ourselves, or at least very minor bouts of it. This is one boys tale of having everything to look forward to a bright future, he seems to be heading in the right direction. He is loved and knows it so what is going on inside? I would recommend this book as a worthy read for parents of teens and of young people who may also feel depressed.

Right from the beginning I wanted to take Kya into my arms and hold her close. Her story is heartbreaking but inspirational. She was both naive and tender and yet so self sufficient and courageous. Author Delia Owens wove a story that kept me enthralled and saddened when it finally came to an unexpected end. The narrator, Cassandra Campbell did such a good job! I will be looking for both of them in the future, hoping for a new book to get lost in.
