This has to be one of my favorite books! Not very many books have brought tears to my eyes, but this but definitely did the trick a few times. I did not know what to expect with this one. I was just looking for something different, and I got this one by chance. I am so glad I did. Great story and great performance.

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

The book itself provided a different perspective on how to view things. This, I can full heartedly appreciate; however, there were parts of the book where I was left thinking, "Oh, c'mon! Seriously?" The author seemed to have added exaggerated experiences just to support her case, and because the accounts felt far-fetched, I couldn't connect. I did come away with a strong desire to tidy my house though. Perhaps, not to the degree in which the author encourages, but enough to where she has encouraged me to get rid of more than I may have initially would have. For that, the book serves its purpose and hence, the 4 stars.

I was not found of the performance. She was ok, but I just could not connect with her, for the life of me. This comes after listening to such an amazing narrator, so perhaps, listening to Emily right after was destined for doom. I really tried, but I just couldn't get myself to enjoy her narration; therefore, to the narrator, I say thank you for the time you devoted to reading this so that I was able to free my hands to do other things (people who finishes the book will know what I mean); but now, it is time for me to delete you.

Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.

Great story. I never expect too much because people tend to under or overrate these books; however, I was entertained. The plot twists are awesome. I never got bored. The narrator was not annoying, unlike some that I have recently listened to. I also enjoyed the interview with the author at the end. There were reviews regarding the investigation process and how archaic it was in the novel, but seriously, just go along with it. I would definitely recommend this to others, and I look forward to reading more of the author's work.

Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

I didn't take well to the narrators. Their voices and "acting" kind of took away from the storyline. The story it sle started off a tad bit slow but eventually got better. The story borderiined a romance novel, but it wasn't overly dramatic so that it wasn't cheesy. This book is okay. I think I may have liked it more if the voices were different.

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Does not disappoint

I didn't know what to expect; it was just a random book I chose. As it turned out, the story was great. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, I later realized that my theory was wrong. It was interesting enough that I had to listen while I was at work. The beginning was a little slow but it quickly became addicting. I wanted to know!!! Great story. The only thing I would have changed is to have men narrate the "male" roles. Otherwise, the book did not disappoint.
