    Part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run an independent Laguna Beach–based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from an established clientele. But they may have come up against something that they can't handle---the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and saying no is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante.

    Look, I saw the trailer for the movie that???s getting made about this book and I was curious, so I bought it. What a huge mistake! I really tried to like this book, I really did, I let this travesty of the written word wage an all-out assault on my intellect for about 4:26:09 till I could finally take no more. It???s not that the author is terrible it???s just that all the characters are so damn DUMB, and spending time in their heads will only make you feel stupid! I know the author was going for deep nonconformists who could wow you with their insight. However, they just come off as annoying emo stoners, which will do anything to get back the even more annoying skinny white chic their both in love with. SAVE YOUR HARD
    EARNED MONEY PEOPLE!!!

    This is an outstanding book. I'm an experienced lifter and I thought I really understood how to create the body I wanted. However, this book really taught me a lot that I didn't know. It caused me to change my entire program and I've had amazing success. I think that this book will save anyone years of fruitless struggle and help you get the body you want. This book offers all the info your ever going to need to reach your goals. This book is amazing and I think people should really pick it up and follow the program to see for yourself.

    Firstly, I think this is a great but to get for anyone that you think needs to get themselves together and become motivated and dedicated to their own improvement. However, if your a person who already has themselves squared away then sadly this book has little to offer you. I think David Rutherford is really an awesome person and I listen to his podcasts and I subscribe to him on youtube. I bought this book to support him, but sadly I didn't get much out of it. I would get this book for a young man.

    In Northern Genabackis, a raiding party of savage tribal warriors descends from the mountains into the southern flatlands. Their intention is to wreak havoc amongst the despised lowlanders, but for the one named Karsa Orlong, it marks the beginning of what will prove to be an extraordinary destiny.

    Story

    This Series is truly the dark horse in the sci-fi world and on audible as a whole. A deep and complex world filled with deep and complex characters. You can't really get ahead of this story. Another factor in this story is that you can never tell which characters are going to die and this series does rack up a body count. However, it does a great job of introducing new characters in way that week the story flowing. I love this series.

    The celebrated 2010 HBO miniseries The Pacific, winner of eight Emmy Awards, was based on two classic books about the War in the Pacific, Helmet for My Pillow and With The Old Breed. Audible Studios, in partnership with Playtone, the production company co-owned by Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, and creator of the award-winning HBO series Band of Brothers, John Adams, and The Pacific, as well as the HBO movie Game Change, has created new recordings of these memoirs, narrated by the stars of the miniseries.

    This is indeed greatest war Memoir I have ever read. Normally, with first hand accounts there is a lot of bluster. However, E.B. Sledge's writing is void of any bravado and it's truly an amazing story. The book will really give you a deep appreciation for what these Marines went through and the brutality that they had to endure. The totality of the conflict in which these young men were swept into is really awe inspiring. I think everyone should really read this work.

  • The Things They Carried

    Hailed by The New York Times as "a marvel of storytelling", The Things They Carried’s portrayal of the boots-on-the-ground experience of soldiers in the Vietnam War is a landmark in war writing. Now, three-time Emmy Award winner-Bryan Cranston, star of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, delivers an electrifying performance that walks the book’s hallucinatory line between reality and fiction and highlights the emotional power of the spoken word.

    Story

    It starts out slow and almost uninteresting, but it really picks up. This is an extremely beautifully written novel. The insight into the inner turmoil of the Officers and soldiers is very deep. I would recommend this novel to anyone. Bryan Cranston is an amazing narrator I mean he could be a title contender for the best in the biz if he keeps it up.

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they’ve created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks.

    I was tired of Zombies so I avoided this book for a long time. However, I finally gave in and read Ex-Hero's and I have to say, in-spite of my own resistance, I got addicted to the series and read all three in the course of a couple of weeks. I love the authors style and the setting this is a gem.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    The ravaged continent of Genabackis has given birth to a terrifying new empire: the Pannion Domin. Like a tide of corrupted blood, it seethes across the land, devouring all. In its path stands an uneasy alliance: Onearm’s army and Whiskeyjack’s Bridgeburners alongside their enemies of old - the forces of the Warlord Caladan Brood, Anomander Rake and his Tiste Andii mages, and the Rhivi people of the plains. But ancient undead clans are also gathering; the T’lan Imass have risen.
