We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
by Karen Joy Fowler
Rosemary Cooke had a different kind of childhood, one that on the surface would appear fun and exotic. She had an older brother, Lowell, and a sister, Fern, a chimpanzee who was both her closest friend and companion as well as her parents’ latest scientific research endeavor. As the chimpanzee/child/sibling/cognition study unfolds it also begins to unravel, until Rosemary, as an adult, finally delves into the memories that will explain the underlying confusion of her life.
by Nicholas Sparks
The audiobook of this sequel to The Notebook is read by Tom Wopat (of Dukes of Hazzard fame), who brings the characters vividly to life. The raspy voice of elderly Noah Calhoun is especially convincing. Wilson Lewis, Calhoun's son-in-law, forgets his 29th wedding anniversary, setting off (or culminating in?) perceived lost feelings from his wife, Jane. Has Wilson really lost Jane's love? Can he change the tide in his marriage? Noah (now in a senior home) plays a major role in Wilson’s dilemma.
