In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites listeners into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms.

What's mine, I keep, and that includes Keira Kilgore. It's no longer enough to have her in my debt. No longer enough to own her body. I want something more. She can try to resist, but I'll never give her up. Nothing will keep us apart. Not her. Not my enemies. No one. Her debt will only be paid one way - with her heart.

Would you consider the audio edition of Burning Up Flint to be better than the print version?

The audio edition of this entire series is all I've done. My work doesn't permit me to read the print version as I like to have something to do while working, audio is perfect for me

What was one of the most memorable moments of Burning Up Flint?

If you like the Laurann Dohner as a writer, and I do. Her cyborg series is sexy, exciting, and fun. Flint is a dream come true as a cyborg

Have you listened to any of Mindy Kennedy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have and I like the job that she does in bring this book and characters to life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'm pretty sure that I did

Any additional comments?

After listening to "Burning up Flint" I had to buy the rest of the series. They did not disappoint. GREAT !GREAT !GREAT !READ

What did you like best about Claimed? What did you like least?

Hated it!!! Laurann Dohner is by far one of my favorite authors. Somehow I did not hear her voice in this. She is so engaging when she writes, I usually can't wait to hear the next word, let alone the next chapter.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I played it four times, because I thought I missed it. What Happened?

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jessee Foudray?

Yes

What would have made this romance irresistible?

For Laurann to have written it alone. sometimes co-writers don't work

Any additional comments?

Laurann give us another Species book pleaseeeeeee

What disappointed you about Old Loyalty, New Love?

I like stories about different species, only this book was very difficult to follow. I started and stopped three or four times and just could not find the story line

Has Old Loyalty, New Love turned you off from other books in this genre?

No other authors have done a fine job with this genre which is why I thought I'd like this book

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Somehow I don't feel we can fault the narrator on this one, Thristan did as good a job as most

What character would you cut from Old Loyalty, New Love?

All of them, even the main character seemed lack luster and confused.

Any additional comments?

I don't normally write reviews, I just rate the books after I hear them. But this in my opinion was so bad, I thought it appropriate to advise readers. This one missed the mark

Ralph Elllison's Invisible Man is a monumental novel, one that can well be called an epic of 20th-century African-American life. It is a strange story, in which many extraordinary things happen, some of them shocking and brutal, some of them pitiful and touching - yet always with elements of comedy and irony and burlesque that appear in unexpected places.

Explaining what it's like to be a Black Person (instead of just a Black Man) in America today, without apology or complaint, done from this time and space.

No, but he's an excellent narrator, I was on a cruise and listen to the book from beginning to end without stopping. Yep all eighteen hours,, It was compelling!!!!

Amos Decker's life changed forever - twice. The first time was on the gridiron. A big, towering athlete, he was the only person from his hometown of Burlington ever to go pro. But his career ended before it had a chance to begin. On his very first play, a violent helmet-to-helmet collision knocked him off the field for good and left him with an improbable side effect - he can never forget anything.

I love figuring out who dun it before the book is finished. the plot was totally surprising. I absolutely love books that makes the plot unimaginable

This was my first time reading this author. I see most of his TV shows, but listening to this book made me realize what a creative genius he is. Also this is my first review. I felt compelled because I was so impressed. Already ordered the sequel..

In the early 20th century, Irene and Val fall in love in Wideland. While carving out a home for themselves, they also allow neighbors Bertha and Joseph to build a house and live on their land.
