We only listen to audio book when we are in the car. As we had just finished listening to Stephanie Meyer's Twilight saga, our friends Andrea and Carmen thought we would enjoy the Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. They were absolutely correct.
The story is told from the point of view of Isabel Spellman, a 28-year old PI who grew up in a family of of PIs. Invading people's privacy came at an early age. This has left its mark in her ability to trust and in forming lasting romatic relationships. It has also created some rather odd inter-family dynamics...kind of like Veronica Mars meets the Fockers.
The six hours of reading was wonderfully performed by Ari Graynor. If you are looking for some fun Summer listening, the Spellman Files should definitely be on your list. We found it so throughly entertaining and engrossing that we went out for a drive just so we could finish finish the book. [Permalink]- Spellman Files
