Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole. She was crowned Queen of the Red Court and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious.

Would you consider the audio edition of Unhinged to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version but I enjoyed the reading very much

What other book might you compare Unhinged to and why?

Nothing like anything else I have read or listened to

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably the dinner scene in Wonderland

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

yes

Any additional comments?

This book and Splintered are amazing! So creative and imaginative. I could almost see the scenes and characters as I listened. Loved the tie in to the original Alice in Wonderland and the tribute to Brandon Lee. Can't wait for book 3.

When the Jezebel River overflows her banks and tries to swallow the small town of Gideon in East Texas, Celia Moon is alone and frightened in the farmhouse she inherited from her grandmother. When a mesmerizing and troubled drifter washes up on her porch, she has no choice but to take him in. As the river rises, the pair retreat to the attic to ride out the storm - and discover a compelling attraction.

Would you try another book from Ruth Wind and Barbara Samuel and/or Nicole Colburn?

Yes. I have read several of Barbara Samuel's books and I love her writing. I would not listen to another book read by Nicole Coburn

If you’ve listened to books by Ruth Wind and Barbara Samuel before, how does this one compare?

This is the first time I have listened to a book by her

What didn’t you like about Nicole Colburn’s performance?

Horrible!!! If I could give her some pointers, the first thing I would say is please pronounce the letter T in the middle of a sentences. She said buuuons instead of buttons, almost every word in the book that had a T in the middle was pronounced that way. It bugged me so much I couldn't get into the story. There were many other mispronunciations through the book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story might have been good, but I couldn't get past the reader.

The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

What disappointed you about The Next Always?

The women's and children's voices were so unbelievable I couldn't listen to it. If I could request a refund I would

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I always enjoy her love stories and the decorating of the inn was interesting.

How could the performance have been better?

I have heard Mr. McLeod read other stories and he is good at it, but not for this book. I thought it was awful.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Next Always?

none
