  • The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage

    Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals use the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense. The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on- - replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people.

    Jerry says: "Indisputable."

    What made the experience of listening to The Joy of Hate the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the quick wit, and the metaphors used to convey this enough is enough message.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the way Greg abandons the PC excess in favor of common sense. Case in point, his take on the Mosque to be in NYC. The ideas of a gay bar next door really put things into perspective and effectively shut the mouths of the so called tolerant.


    Did Steve Kramer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Not especially, I much prefer that the Author read his own work. I think Greg would have done a much better job relaying the spirit of the message. Also the narrator mispronounced some words and some people's names, not very impressive.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Gutfeld's use of metaphors to convey the logical absurdities in this over PC'd world.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot wait for the next one.

  • The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1

    Story

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "What a Terrific Book"
    "Great book, I am now hooked on Harry."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to all those who love a great mystery.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy the depth that Connelly gives to his character(s). Harry Bosch is a terrifically burdened, troubled Cop with a mission. I found myself unable to stop listening, in my desire to get to the end. As I write this I am almost finished with book 4 in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill absolutely makes this as good as it is. His reading/voice range is excellent. I love listening to anything he's done. And as a matter of fact I will listen to everything he's done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I usually don't care for many Vietnam war references, but these truly gave the character depth and purpose for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I cannot wait to get through the whole series.

    Few books besides the Bible have been translated, printed, and read as often as The Pilgrim's Progress. John Bunyan's classic allegory of Christian, the Pilgrim, on his perilous journey to the Celestial City has touched hearts and minds for more than 300 years, and still the demand continues.

    William says: "A well read update of the classic"
    "A timeless Christian Classic."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Time very well spent. I have read this book many times over the years and I always get some new insight, each time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pilgrim's Progress?

    I so enjoy the allegory, it sure makes it easy to draw some real life applications.


    What aspect of Max McLean’s performance would you have changed?

    Classic English novel read with a Classic English accent, how proper.


    Was The Pilgrim's Progress worth the listening time?

    Yes I enjoyed every minute of it.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks audible, you have surely scratched an itch, with this business model. I travel around eight hundred miles a week in my car, and I don't know what I would do without these books to help pass the time.
