“Witty and moving essays about everything from air conditioning to Canada geese, Green artfully distills much of the human condition and what it means to be alive. Each essay's subject ends with his rating out of five stars -- I give this book five stars.”

Nothing to See Here

By Kevin Wilson
Narrated by: Marin Ireland
Length: 6 hours 40 minutes

Nothing to See Here

“Lillian will melt your heart. Well, maybe "melt" is a bit too descriptive for the brilliant but down-on-her-luck protagonist who agrees to care for twins Roland and Bessie, who, through no fault of their own, sometimes spontaneously combust. Kevin Wilson (The Family Fang) has a talent for weird but wonderful plots, and in his telling the trio -- committed to looking "normal" for the sake of the twins' US Senator father -- are sweet and smart. You'll be hoping for a happy ending, and wondering how Wilson can make it happen. Reader Marin Ireland reads all the characters with a perfect Tennessee inflection.”

It is then that Danny and Maeve realize they only have each other to rely on. Their relationship is complex and intriguing.

The Stationery Shop

By Marjan Kamali
Narrated by: Mozhan Marnò
Length: 9 hours 13 minutes

The Stationery Shop

“The Stationary Shop is a beautifully written novel set in two timelines - 1953 and 2013. It is set in Tehran and the later years in the U.S. Roya and Bahman meet in Mr. Fakhris Stationery Shop. They are in their teens and obviously, favorite patrons of the shopkeeper. Young love soon grows into true love and they become engaged. On the eve of their wedding, they plan to meet in the town square. Meanwhile, the coup d'etat occurs and Bahman pulls a no-show. At least that's what Roya thinks. Sixty years later Roya and Bahman connect again. This book should be accompanied by a case of tissues. It will pull at your heartstrings. The characters are colorful as well as well-rounded. You won't be disappointed in the ending. The narration is stellar.”
