Book: A Dog’s Purpose, by W. Bruce Cameron
Rating: 5
Review by: Emily N.

“This book is so lovable! An incredible narrator adds so much to the story! I listen to lots and lots of audio books, a bad narrator can make my favorite book almost intolerable to listen to. You really feel like you’re listening to a dog talk and his enthusiasm is infectious! I’ve listened to this book multiple times and highly recommend it! Especially to anyone who loves dogs!”


Book: The Mistress, by Danielle Steel
Rating: 5
Review by: Debbie M.

“This is my favorite book written by Danielle Steele. I have read many of her books, and this book was by far my top favorite. I live out here in Southern California, you know how bad traffic is if you moved out here. I downloaded her book on audiobooks, and after the first chapter I was captivated. I had something to look forward to wherever I drove. To tell you the truth, I didn’t pay any attention to the traffic or any noise. I was in my own imagination between Conversations with “Vladimir and Natasha”. Danielle, I think really gave this book all she had and I want to thank you Danielle for writing so beautifully. I don’t cry much, yet I cried at the ending. I did not want the book to end and I wanted to hear more on a new developing love. It was over too quickly. What a wonderful, awesome, beautiful story. Thank you, Danielle.”


Book: Strangers, by Dean Koontz
Rating: 5
Review by: Christopher H.

“I loved this book, and after only about 20 mins I got used to, and enjoyed the narration and the narrator. Great characters that are slowly exposed to the listener. The story unfolds as fine threads of the plot connect all the characters, leading to the climactic event evident in all the Koontz novels I’ve read to date. If you like Koontz, you’ll love Strangers and the audiobook and narrator are also great! I highly recommend it!”
