I listened to Jodi Picoult's latest novel, A Spark of Light, narrated by Bahni Turpin, about a mass shooting/hostage situation in an abortion clinic in Mississippi.

I was hesitant about this one, but I'm glad I read it. The novel examined various viewpoints about abortion in the stories of the different characters caught up in the shooting. The story is told backwards, with each chapter focusing on a different hour-- five o'clock, four o'clock, three o'clock, etc. (the epilogue returns to the six o'clock hour, resolving the story). That structure worked for me. There are lot of POV characters, and the narrator does an excellent job differentiating them.

The little surprises throughout weren't especially surprising, but I don't think they were necessarily intended to be. The story was really about the characters and how they came to be in the horrific situation.

Listening to Elves of Cintra by Terry Brooks which is book 2 of Genesis of Shannara. I read it when it first came out, but now have the audiobooks of the series. I have a cold and Pandora's Star by Peter Hamilton is too hard to follow with cold medicine.
