  • "Great Book! It Changed Me"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    First, I am staunchly anti Communist China. I don't like doing business China. I don't like supporting a military that will one day dominate us. I refuse to help a Chinese business in my work as a business consultant and will retire long before the day that will be necessary to make a living.

    Get it? I do not like China.

    But, I liked this book so much, it changed me.

    The book softened me on my feelings about the people of China who want and care about many of the same things we do---we are just competing for limited resources.

    I'm still very anti China but I have a lot more empathy for the people as a result of this book.

    Of all the books about modern China, this one gives a totally different look than any of the others. It's not political. It's just a really nice look at what life is like in China.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes culture and wants to understand the world.

    Great book.

    it might even change you!

    Story

    I enjoyed this because it covers an event not commonly known in the U.S. The subject was interesting and I learned a lot.

    I think a little more could have been included about ballooning in general and perhaps a bit on modern day, long trip, ballooning.

    Still, an interesting story told well.

    If you like adventure history or quirky history, you'll like this book. It is a little confusing in the middle and they establish camp---I wasn't sure what was happening and had to go back a few times to put pieces together. That's okay but it was a little bumpy so I give 4 stars.

    In this grand and astonishing account, Alec Wilkinson brings us the story of S. A. Andrée, the visionary Swedish aeronaut who, in 1897, during the great age of Arctic endeavor, left to discover the North Pole by flying to it in a hydrogen balloon. Called by a British military officer “the most original and remarkable attempt ever made in Arctic exploration,” Andrée’s expedition was followed by nearly the entire world, and it made him an international legend.

    "Hilarious"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up Carsick in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, gross and depraved.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Carsick?

    John Water's unlikely friendship with a young man who drives him across country.


    What about John Waters’s performance did you like?

    Everything. The man is a master storyteller and just the cadence of his voice is hysterical.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It'll make you puke with excitement.


    Any additional comments?

    The funniest book I have listened to all year!

  • "Candid, Honest and Educational"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    I downloaded the book before our summer vacation to one of the parks, so it was timely. A collection of National Park "slices of life" from a Ranger's perspective. Gives the reader a good look at not only "a day in the life" of a ranger, but also a broader insight into the career of a ranger. I liked it.

    The real stories behind the scenery of America’s national parks. For 12 years, Andrea Lankford lived in the biggest, most impressive national parks in the world, working a job she loved. She chaperoned baby sea turtles on their journey to sea. She pursued bad guys on her galloping patrol horse. She jumped into rescue helicopters bound for the heart of the Grand Canyon. She won arguments with bears. She slept with a few too many rattlesnakes. Hell yeah, it was the best job in the world! Fortunately, Andrea survived it.

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    In the late nineteenth century, people were obsessed by one of the last unmapped areas of the globe: The North Pole. No one knew what existed beyond the fortress of ice rimming the northern oceans. On July 8, 1879, the USS Jeannette set sail from San Francisco to cheering crowds in the grip of "Arctic Fever." The ship sailed into uncharted seas, but soon was trapped in pack ice. Two years into the harrowing voyage, the hull was breached. Amid the rush of water and the shrieks of breaking wooden boards, the crew abandoned the ship.

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America, from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck’s attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature—to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.
