Daisy is a girl coming of age in LA in the late '60s, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s 20, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things. Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne.

I was hoping for more from this book. The performances were good, but not exceptional. It may have been a better READ than a listen. The documentary format was a little awkward. And rather cliched story line.

Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students vanished. Five years later, just when Mia is beginning to heal, stranger Alison walks into her life, saying her husband didn't kill himself. Fragile, slight Alison leads Mia on a path into Zach's past, and Mia begins to think she never really knew her own husband.

Silent Lies, the well-written saga of a woman trying to heal after the death of her husband, has, from the very first words, an aura of suspense and underlying sadness. We get to know the protagonist slowly, and with misleading simplicity. I quite enjoyed the drawn out suspense.... and the unexpected results as new clues are discovered. #Audible1

On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

Stephen King's take on the "what if" of time travel deals with JFK's assassination. He uses acceptance of the unknown to explain the simplistic approach to the time slip, as well as hinting at supernatural influence. A thoroughly entertaining romp through the 60's middle America, that has more references to other aspects of the King world throughout. Heartily recommended, as always. #Audible1

The Great A'Tuin, the heroic turtle who supports the weight of the entire Discworld, not to mention four giant elephants, swims through the galaxy day and night with the burden of being the only creature who knows exactly where the universe is going. Philosophers have long debated where this is, and are due to find out in about 2 months. Shall they worry?

Nigel Planer’s interpretation of the first two books of Discworld is entertainment incarnate. His performance brings life and animation to the amazing characters in Terry Pratchett’s classic. You will not be disappointed. #Audible1
