While Anna Quindlen doesn't describe everyone's experience of grandparenting, so much of her experience resonates, the inexpressible love and exhaustion, the different expectations and relationship of the grandchild and grandparent. I loved her description of the feeling of holding that little hand and of wanting to do anything for them. I argued, laughed, teared up and thought about the stories and statements. the narrator is excellent.

I loved it. Leaphorn is more central to this story, but all the characters continue with their stories as well as the mystery. I'll be waiting for the next one!

I had a cold, so listened to this book completely in 2 days. the horror of the blitz attacks on London is very real, and kept me thinking of a friend who lived through those days. the book has a quiet dignity and strength, like Maisie herself.

this completes my second or third listen to this book, and I'll immediately begin another in this series. I can spend hours with Mary Russell, with her dry wit, irony, intelligence, independence and beautiful use of language. a favorite phrase in this book was that pride could be swallowed, especially if followed by a strong cup of tea. good company!

the plot and mystery as always twist and turn to the very end, and the setting is so we'll done, the time and place in all it's complexity described accurately and with feeling. if one has been to Israel and Jerusalem one can picture the places and people.

I've listened to this series at least five times with my grandson beginning when he was about nine years old. we both enjoy the characters, the Egyptian mythology and history and the humor. I also appreciate the values in all Rick Riordan's work. The two narrators are excellent, maintaining essentially the same voice for each character even as the narrators change back and forth,. especially difficult as one is male and the other female! this is a great series to share, in the car or as an alternative to television.

Barbara Ehrenreich's research and conclusions are startling, provoking, and significant. I listened, argued, attempted to understand and questioned, waiting to learn what she would conclude. her book has opened possibilities and leaves me with a different understanding of body, mind and nature, and the desire to follow research in this field. The narrator is excellent, the book is read with a strong tone that matches the words, and her diction is clear.
