After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

A good whodunnit. And a good narrator. I did not see the ending coming, and enjoyed how it all played out.

Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

I liked having 2 narrators and enjoyed the sound effects. The book itself had a great storyline and a good ending.

    4 out of 5 stars 1,370

In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. We learn everything from which celebrity peed in her WWHL dressing room to which Housewives are causing trouble and how. Nothing is off limits - including dating.

I really enjoyed it. I loved listening about all the things that happen in the life of famous people. It shows that above all, they are still people. I like Andy's personality and how he shows the true personalities of his friends. I also enjoyed his attempts of voice impersonations. :-) Overall, a great listen!

Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the flow of the story line, and how the characters developed as the book went on.

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

He does a wonderful job giving all the characters their personality. And he really let the emotions of the characters situations show. It was like watching a movie, I could see everything that was going on. And I feel like that was because of how he read it.

Any additional comments?

I recomment this. It's well written and even the scarier parts of the books have some good humor laced into it.
