  • "Is Nothing is Sacre'?"

    Story

    I'm new to Christopher Moore. I'd seen those signature covers, with the bold chunky letters "M-O-O-R-E" across the front, and was curious..."What new genre is this: vampires named Abby Normal, murderous Santas, the spectre Death in a baby carriage, King Lear as a comedy, Jesus and his boyhood pal Biff...holy merde!...is nothing sacre'?!" I was tempted, but my impression was the subject matter was too surreal, too bawdy, too irreverant, for my tastes. But a novel about wonderful art, Paris, Van Gogh, even if it was fictional comedy....oh! I could not resist. I didn't stop smiling or laughing for 11 hrs. and 40 min.

    Sacre' Bleu is a brilliantly crafted mish-mash of genres, part historical fiction, part mystery, part fantasy, part mythology, loaded with satire and comedic genius, but also some accurate and interesting history. I get why the fans are zealous, why the reviews are glowing--this is entertaining smart comedy; energetic and colorful, with a cast of who's-who in the world of 19th century artists (even a "cameo" by Descartes and Hemingway) and a story that spans history. The character Toulouse-Lautrec was especially funny, brought to life by the wonderful narration of Euan Morton.The first hour is a little slow, but the pace picks up quickly, and if the plot doesn't draw you in, the amusing banter will.

    If you are considering Moore for the first time, I can say I enjoyed this listen immensely, but don't think it is for everyone, it's more an acquired taste. It is irreverant, and there is some bawdy humor--if you can't laugh at a dirty joke, and bits of sophmoric humor, you might not appreciate Moore's style. As for me, I want more of anything that can hold my interest AND keep a smile on my face. I'll be reading the Audible members' reviews of other Moore books and choosing another.

    In July 1890, Vincent van Gogh went into a cornfield and shot himself. Or did he? Why would an artist at the height of his creative powers attempt to take his life... and then walk a mile to a doctor's house for help? Who was the crooked little "color man" Vincent had claimed was stalking him across France? And why had the painter recently become deathly afraid of a certain shade of blue? These are just a few of the questions confronting Vincent's friends who vow to discover the truth of van Gogh's untimely death.

    Story

    A case of one skill translating perfectly to another field...Maria Semple is an accomplished TV writer (Mad About you, Arrested Development) with years of perfecting the art of compacting a storyline with dialogue and comedy into the most effective punch possible for a time slot. It's a good thing books don't come with laugh tracks--or you'd be downloading thousands of hours to accompany this energetic and hilarious romp--because it is funny. Not rolling off the couch guffawing or holding your sides funny, but clever snarky fun that Semple reigns in just enough to keep her characters real and multi-dimensional instead of implausible quirky stand-ins delivering witty one-liners. These people are smart, troubled, caring, and completely original, all tumbling down a slippery slope from LA to Seattle to Argentina to India (and the Russian mafia) to the Antartica--a story that follows one misunderstanding along all of its crazy off-shoots. Seattle, seen through the eyes of native Californian Bernadette's eyes, becomes a wacky character itself.

    Bernadette is a "misplaced" LA to Seattle artist that "can't create," causing mayhem and acting on whims and pent-up anxiety; Elgin is a brainiac that spends his shoe-less days as a Micorsoft demi-god; Bee is the precocious perfect mix of the two with a insouciant bohemian heart, and a genius and insight uniquely her own (and worships the Beatles Abbey Road - lyrics, history, and all. Her mother's favorite song ironically is Here Comes the Sun; Harrison's guitar lead in "always causes [her mother] to smile.") Bee also serves as the voice that connects this series of communications (faxes, e-mails, letters, memo's, FBI reports, etc.) into a map to find her missing mother Bernadette, who escapes "the butterfly nets" during a mental-health intervention...she went out "through the bathroom window"... that ends up being more like a Keystone Cops episode.

    As far as the narration...if you'd have asked me 20 min. in, I'd have said awful. The writing style is already a bit frenetic and the animated adolescent voice of Bee made me want to offer the narrator some Ritalin; I almost threw in the towel. But I was hooked enough by the charming calamity that I didn't want to quit. I also realized that when you committ to audio books you have to weigh the risk of great stories being told by not-so-great narrators, or vice versa (and the wonderful times when you get a magical pairing of 2 greats). I'm so glad I took the pragmatic approach because I ended up really liking Kathleen Willhoite; I think she may have been the perfect narrator for this story afterall (a case of a not-so-great listener...).

    A fresh and captivating read that will appeal to anyone that appreciates good smart comedy and satire--just as good for Bernards as for Bernadettes. If you pass because you think this is only chick fic [?] you are missing out. I just dare you to read this and not smile. The funny feel good book of the Summer of 2012.

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

    Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette's intensifying allergy to Seattle - and people in general - has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands.

    "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"

    Overall

    Will you please stop featuring such appealing novels only available in abridged format? I am continually stumped as to why oh why anyone with a brain would even bother to read an abridged novel. Several times I have found on your site what promised to be a good read, but only available in the abridged version, and I have gone to the competition and rented the unabridged cassettes. Please stop the insanity!

  • Care of Wooden Floors: A Novel

    "Five out of Five!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I love that this book takes a very quotidian situation - housesitting & petsitting - and turns it into white-knuckle-level high drama. In that way the writing reminds me of the "44 Scotland Street" series by Alexander McCall Smith, though "Wooden Floors" goes into much more detail and is augmented by heavy doses of black humor. In fact, found myself laughing out loud - some of the situations were written so as to be so amusing I had to actually stop running in order to get the most out of the hilarious visuals.

    If this was all about daily dysfunction, or Murphy's Law, Laurel & Hardy style, that would be enough, but there is character learning and intellectual growth, with exploration of maladaptive personality quirks thrown in.

    The book also brings to mind the Mark Twain quote (or was it Oscar Wilde?): "I've had a lot of problems in my life, most of which have never happened."

    Loved reading and listening to this!

  • The Good Nanny

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    From the blurb, I was expecting a noir-like tale of life-with-nanny gone terribly wrong, an account of a bucolic familial paradise devolving into sinister mayhem.

    However, this book is just a bunch of trendoid conversations and aspirational remarks approaching wittiness, with added observations on the elitist life.

    Not amusing, not enjoyable, with lots of "Old Boys Club" chats that seem dated, and to which I could not relate.

  • A Disorder Peculiar to the Country: A Novel

    "Not Black, Not A Comedy But Still Good"

    Overall

    So it looks like all the books that people wrote after 9/11 are now achieving publication. Some of the political dialogue worked well, but there was not enough on the dynamic of the family which was much more interesting.

    This was a great read but only gets a "3" as IMO it fell apart at the end with unfocused, overdeveloped scenes and a pollyanna twist.

    And, this is one of many recent books I've read with sound effects. Looks like it is becoming a trend and it doesn't work for me. I use audio books sometimes as a sleep aid and the between-chapter interludes wake me up! I hope audible stops this practice soon.

    I so thoroughly enjoyed this masterpiece that I've broken my policy of only one listen per book - I've listened to it twice and I'm predicting I'll be doing it again at some point. You know that feeling when you just want to finally get a good book that doesn't take itself too seriously but is extremely well written? One that will lighten your step and make you look forward to your drive to work? Well, this is that book. The bonus for me was learning about King Lear and his court without having read the Shakespeare original. Yes, it contains incredibly filthy language - but it's the wonderfully wicked kind and an English accent always makes dirty words sound less dirty right? The narration is to die for - simply perfect - the characters are loveable and absurd - I couldn't ask for more (pun avoided - you're welcome.)

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Uncle Fred, or to give him his full title of Frederick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is considered by some as a splendid gentleman - a sportsman to his fingertips. Mr. Twistleton, nephew to the Earl, and otherwise known as Pongo to his friends, has a differing view. He simply describes his uncle as being loopy to the tonsils. But when the eccentric and well-loved Uncle Fred plays Cupid to Lord Emsworth, his old friend at Blandings Castle, little did he know that he would be known as Impostor A and the Lord’s beloved pig, the Empress, as Impostor B....

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Sam Vimes is on a well-deserved holiday. But for the commander of the City Watch, a vacation in the country is anything but relaxing. The balls, the teas, the muck - not to mention all that fresh air and birdsong - are more than a bit taxing on a cynical city-born and -bred copper. Yet a policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered, and Sam - out of his jurisdiction, out of his element, and out of bacon sandwiches (thanks to his well-meaning wife) - must rely on his instincts, guile, and street smarts to see justice done.
