Seeking women ages 18-32 to participate in a study on ethics and morality. Generous compensation. Anonymity guaranteed. When Jessica Farris signs up for a psychology study conducted by the mysterious Dr. Shields, she thinks all she’ll have to do is answer a few questions, collect her money, and leave. But as the questions grow more and more intense and invasive and the sessions become outings where Jess is told what to wear and how to act, she begins to feel as though Dr. Shields may know what she’s thinking...and what she’s hiding.

I really liked this book, I don't understand the big fuss about the narration. I think the way it is narrated works well. I really could visualize the characters. I don't want to say more, so I don't reveal any surprises. Do yourself a favor and give it a try if you like suspense.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in LA in the late '60s, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s 20, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne.

When I started this book, I thought this is not going to work. But I was sooooo wrong. The narration is great. Story is good, I'm a child of the 70s, so I can relate some. The best music came out of the 70, and there are many bands that could have a similar story. But, the narration makes the book. I see a movie in the future.

In 1780s London, a prosperous merchant finds his quiet life upended when he unexpectedly receives an unusual creature - and meets a most extraordinary woman - in this much-lauded, atmospheric debut that examines our capacity for wonder, obsession, and desire. One September evening in 1785, Jonah Hancock hears an urgent knocking on his front door near the docks of London. The captain of one of Jonah’s trading vessels is waiting eagerly on the front step, bearing shocking news. On a voyage to the Far East, he sold the Jonah’s ship for something rare and far more precious: a mermaid.

It's a fairy tail like wonder, but for adults. wonderfully written and narrated. I don't need to say more but I can't write a review under 15 words, how ridiculous.

I don't usually like to be negative, but I feel it's a word of caution, I value my credits and this was not worthy. The story line is weak and the writing is very juvenile. Honeys, sweethearts, everywhere good grief. The characters are very flat stick figures and very predictable.

Narration was very good, but does not live up to the hype. Worth a read but I was disapointed in the weak story. This is not a page turned that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I kept thinking action was just around the corner, then it was finished.

I was worried that the narration may not be as good as the other books, don't worry, it is just as good if not better. People get too hung up on the voice sounding different, Amanda Cobb does a great job. I have really enjoyed this series.
