Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See (Audio)

12 I ended up grabbing this one (abridged) because my book club is reading it, but I wasn’t going to have time to read it, working too much. So, I downloaded it and listed to it. It was okay. The narrator was actually very pleasant – the story, of course, was beautiful. I guess I […]

Audio: Tender At The Bone by Ruth Reichl

10 This is the 2nd audio book I’ve listened to from Ruth Reichl. She is simply amazing. Her voice and writings are beautiful. I can taste the food as she describes it, her voice brings you into her… well, her mouth. Don’t listen to this if you are hungry – you will be starving. Only […]

‘Tis by Frank McCourt (Audiobook)

9 For anyone out there that “doesn’t like memoirs”, I dare you to listen to Frank McCourt reading his own work and not be enchanted. Frank’s life is not only interesting and entertaining, it makes you feel. You cannot hear him and not be sucked back in time there with him. He is the single […]

Audio: Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx

4 The narrator for this short audio story was absolutely perfect for this piece. I loved hearing this story again and it was wonderfully done. It did Ms. Proulx proud. ====Unabridged, 1 CD. Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they’re working as sheep herder and camp tender one summer […]

Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise by Ruth Reichl

77 This is my first book by this author. From someone’s recommendation, I downloaded it to listen to it and LOVED it. The author reads it herself, which can sometimes be a disaster, but she did a great job. I am a bit of a foodie myself so hearing her describe some of the dishes […]

The Masque of the Black Tulip by Laura Willig

I absolutely love the narrator for these books. She does an amazing job — for her alone, I will be purchasing the next one to listen to. The story is, of course, fun, silly, adventurous, etc etc. You can’t help but laugh AND be entertained. This is a great series! ====From the PublisherThe author of […]

(Audio Book) Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

In classic Candy-fashion, I have re-read a book and wasn’t sure. Some things sounded vaguely familiar… well duh! BUT this was on audio. Tom and I listened to this on a 2600 mile (round trip) visit to my mother’s over Christmas. This is the PERFECT book to listen to when you don’t want to have […]

(AudioBook) Between, Georgia by Joshilyn Jackson

I just finished listening to this. Very well done, the author reads this herself, I have to admit that did like the reader for Gods In Alabama more. I liked the story, I thought Nonny was a very likable character, but I didn’t like this book as much as I wanted to – I definitely […]

(AudioBook) Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

Frank McCourt is easily my favorite of all the memoir writers. I read the book a while back, but saw this and saw he reads it in his own voice and I knew I’d have to listen. He is mesmerizing. His story in his own words. I took my sweet time listening to this in […]

(Audio Book) The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig

This book is NOT something I would have ever read on my own, but a few friends were raving about it, so I decided to give it a shot. I think it’s classified as “historical romance” — romance is NOT my thing. The audio recording was some 15 hours long, I believe. The first 5 […]
