At age ten, Riley Lambert watched helplessly as her sister was abducted from her bedroom. Fifteen years later, she's channeled the pain of her past into a career as an FBI profiler. Riley devotes her life to bringing violent criminals to justice...and secretly uses government resources to search for her sister, who was never found.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book had great reviews...I was excited to try it out. Unfortunately, I was unable to listen to it due to the narrators voice. Wobbly, ready to cry female voice narration. Its exhausting to listen to the story because I think the narrator is going to start crying any minute. I tried to keep skipping ahead to push through the areas of the book the narrator considered sad....but she speaks in that voice the entire book!!!

Has Forgotten Secrets turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, just that narrator.

What didn’t you like about Lauren Ezzo’s performance?

Everything.

  • Ready Player One

  • By: Ernest Cline
  • Narrated by: Wil Wheaton
  • Length: 15 hrs and 40 mins
  • Unabridged
  • Overall
    5 out of 5 stars 210,681
  • Performance

  • Story

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.
