Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great story that really keeps you interested. Characters are complex and interesting. I hope they make this into a movie.

Who was your favorite character and why?

both of the lead characters were great. I can not pick one over the other because without one there would be no story.

What about Janet Song’s performance did you like?

very good

Rachel Kramer Bussel has collected a wide and wild variety of original erotica stories that are deliciously short - just one orgasmic bite at a time. In 1,200 words or less, these authors explore every which way you can "get it on", including threesomes, sex toys, public sex, BDSM, fetishes, and much more. Get "Anal-yzed", learn "The Advantage of Working from Home", and spy some risqué "Vacation Pictures". There are pecan rolls dripping in caramel and meals where lovers feast on nothing but each other.

The Godfather is an extraordinary novel which has become a modern-day classic. Puzo pulls us inside the violent society of the Mafia and its gang wars. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power.

For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.
