Where does A Higher Loyalty rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an excellent book. Comey is not the most accomplished narrator, but he brings a certain credibility to the piece that another narrator would not.

What did you like best about this story?

Ironically, Comey wrote the book to explain why he did certain things, like the mishandling of Clinton's emails. In his attempt to explain them, he discloses how tone deaf he was to the national debate. He had no idea how his actions would affect the national debate. It was eyeopening.

What does James Comey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A certain veracity.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The death of his infant son - a preventable tragedy.

Any additional comments?

While everyone reads it for the sections on Trump, the book as a whole tells an interesting story of a historical figure

So there was all that: the ordinary twill of life; the ho-hum sturm und drang of the workplace: the ubiquitous absurdities, the annoying co-workers, the bloody deadlines and even bloodier bottom lines; the bland, eternal, Sisyphean, absolute, unrelenting, surreal certainty of the day-in-and-day-out of it all. Life as a slice of white bread, moistened with spit and rolled into a messy glob, a doughy ball that couldn't make the slightest dent in the iron gates of life. But then, suddenly, on August 27, 2002, all that changed. Suddenly, Rae-Jean's uneventful life began to leaven and swell with hypotheticals.

What did you love best about Help Wanted: Female?

Sara Pritchard's characters are always just off center, always unexpected. Her storied sparkle with humor, even as they tug at your heart.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Help Wanted: Female?

The woman whose husband leaves her suddenly for his partner's widow - with whom, it seems, he has fathered two children. She finally manages to deal with her anger through an unlikely friendship with an elderly neighbor.

What about Sara Pritchard’s performance did you like?

Ms. Pritchard's performance is not conventional. She is not an actress or orator, but her sweet delivery and obvious delight in her stories is infectious.
