Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Every Last One - Anna Quindlen Audiobook version from Audible.com, read by Hope Davis. This was my first experience with Anna Quindlen's work, and I chose to listen to this book on the strength of the user reviews. It did not disappoint. It has been a long time since I've become so immersed in the emotions of a story that I completely lost my sense of the real world around me. I found myself standing completely still, crying in the middle of a room with my headphones on and no idea how much time had passed. Hope Davis does a fine job reading the story - I found her pacing and emotion fit the main character's voice very well, but I did have some difficulty distinguishing between the voices of minor characters. I highly recommend this audiobook.
