    Breakfast of Champions is vintage Vonnegut. One of his favorite characters, aging writer Kilgore Trout, finds to his horror that a Midwest car dealer is taking his fiction as truth. The result is murderously funny satire as Vonnegut looks at war, sex, racism, success, politics, and pollution in America and reminds us how to see the truth.

    This was my first Kurt Vonnegut book, print or audio.
    I really liked it. BUT I can see were It would not be for everyone. The writing style might be to confusing or weird for everyone.
    I would defiantly read/listen to another one of his books, when I'm in the right mood.
    The story was well developed and I didn't know how it was going to end , well till the end. I found myself laughing out loud sometimes, and other times mouthing "what the f$%k".

    I loved this book. I got it for a daily deal, and so glad I did.
    I know it was written in the 70's, but you really couldn't tell. I thought at some points it had a Night side by Simon Green vibe. If you like that series I think you will like these. Not the plot or story, I don't know to describe it. The journey screen could have been in one of his books easy.
    Cleaver, comical and well thought out writing. It's not really long, but it doesn't need to be. He captured the feeling he was going for without adding a bunch of BS.
    I listened to this book like watching a movie. The narrator was great. I'm on the third one now.

  • The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism

    Written by Naoki Higashida, a very smart, very self-aware, and very charming thirteen-year-old boy with autism, The Reason I Jumpis a one-of-a-kind memoir that demonstrates how an autistic mind thinks, feels, perceives, and responds in ways few of us can imagine. Parents and family members who never thought they could get inside the head of their autistic loved one at last have a way to break through to the curious, subtle, and complex life within.

    Would you try another book from Naoki Higashida and/or Tom Picasso?

    I would listen to more books narrated by Tom Picasso.. Probably wouldn't read anymore book by Naoki Higashida.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to this book, from the perspective of this ONE autistic child.
    HOWEVER, to say this was written solely by him, I feel is pushing it a bit. If so, it would have taken years. The sentences and stories are very complex and sometimes long. I'm not saying mentally he couldn't come up with these answers, but he was pointing at a select group of flashcards. There was probably a good amount of interpretation and editing by the family.
    I also didn't like how it was said no two autistic children are the same, but its repeated many times how this and that are how it is. I don't even has an autistic child and it was bothering me.
    Having said that, if you can get over the fact its a paraphrased interview with contradicting views. It was a very interesting listen. It gives insight on things that could be going on with your child, or just a fascinating view into HIS mind.

    Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him--and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred.

    Dorothy says: "Reaper"
    "Okay if your trying to kill two hours."
    Overall

    Narrator was okay.
    Story seemed a little blah, almost like it was written by a teenager. It wasn't bad, but wasn't great.

  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    A User says: "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt"
    "One of the best listens, I’ve had in awhile!"
    Overall


    First off the narrator is amazing. She’s got a range from 7 year old to ninety year old, different genders and accents. She read the book how we all want to be able to read it in our minds.

    This book is both sad, happy, funny and something to learn from.
    Cee Cee is an adorable character you fall in love with right away, but my favorite character would have to be Mrs. Culpepper, but that maybe because I hope I’m just like her in 20 years. ;)
    A must read.
