An IndiBound best seller, The Days of Abandonment shocked and captivated its Italian public when first published. It is the gripping story of a woman's descent into devastating emptiness after being abandoned by her husband, with two young children to care for. When she finds herself literally trapped within the four walls of their high-rise apartment, she is forced to confront her ghosts, the potential loss of her own identity, and the possibility that life may never return to normal.

Writing was concise but it seemed to really drag on too long. Story was too predictable but accurate in how someone feels that’s been betrayed.

I really enjoy the Harry Bosch series. I didn't like the background music and the character voice of the victim's wife didn't sound right. But still enjoyed the stories at a great price through Audible.

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

I really enjoy hearing the story. The narrators do the voices well and it holds my interest. Never slow like some stories. I'm excited to listen to the next in this series. The teaser at the end of the taping of the next book makes me want to run out and get it immediately. Lots of fun. I would highly recommend this series to all ages.

This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.
