Another "I shouldn't have listened to the abridged version" audio book, though I'm not sure I should have listened to this at all. Delinsky was a favorite author of my mother's and I'm missing her a little, so dared the book. For car "ear reading" it was okay, though I just wanted to shake Julia and make her be a grown up. But when she and Noah finally get around to acting on the quivering liquidity they feel inside whenever they're near, I did shout out, "oh come on! Get real", making the driver next to me think I had road rage. I believe the exact turn of phrase that made me shout was, "cushioned by the mist, they made love against the side of the truck." Bet that produced some pretty bruises on the backside.
