    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.

    Still reeling from a brutal dismemberment, detective Kline is forcibly recruited to solve a murder inside a religious cult that takes literally the New Testament idea that you should cut off your hand if it offends you. Armed only with his gun, his wits, and a gift for self-preservation, Kline must navigate a gauntlet of lies, threats, and misinformation. All too soon he discovers that the stakes are higher than he thought and that his survival depends on an act of sheer will.

    I thought this novel could have been so much more but it really wasn't. The plot was interesting enough however there are more than a few points where it drags and the reader is going to be bored. Overall I would say that there are much better reads out there.

    This is probably my favorite in the series so far. Walt's time in Nam has often been alluded to, but never fully explained until now. This is really a great work that I enjoyed very much.

    Death stalks Corvis by night, and only an unlikely group of heroes known as the Black River Irregulars can put an end to the terror. The labyrinth of tunnels beneath Corvis is home to some of the city's worst criminals, but now even these hardened thugs have reason to watch their step in the dark, shadowy undercity. Death moves in that darkness, leaving behind a trail of horribly mangled bodies.

    Murder in Corvis follows the exploits of what is basically a tribe of odd balls who are thrown together to solve a murder. I really liked this story War Machine is starting to suffer from the fact that their books are to short and simple. They could really make the world deep if they undertook the books with a serious eye towards making great stories instead of fun romps. I really hope they get some serious authors on the job soon.

    Everything about this novel is amazing. Somehow Craig Johnson was a way of making the most mundane parts of Walt's life seem interesting. The plot overall is very compelling and the mystery isn't easily solved. There is actually some black hearted foes which will push Walt to his limits. All and all this is an amazing book.

    Story

    I knew about the books from the TV series, and while the TV series is good most times I can take it or leave it. This book however is another matter entirely. I cannot say enough good things about this novel it truly is a masterwork of literature. The way the author describes the little town where Walter recedes it nothing short of amazing. Given the fact that it's a small country town you might be think there is a certain lack of anything interesting happening in the novel and there would be points where it will drag, I know that was the case for me, but rest assured this novel will pull you in through the strength and charm of the characters alone. There is a complex interplay between the characters in this story Walt and Bear being the most lovable and interesting. George Guidall with that smokey voice of his is the perfect choice to narrate this masterwork. This story is a most have and it is and intelligent man's crime novel.

    You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice, and that you don’t deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists, and BBC stalwarts. This audiobook makes revolution not only possible but inevitable and fun.

    I really loved this book. I think old Russell makes many great points and throws in enough clever wit and one liners to make this thoughtful and entertaining. Russell goes deep on many subjects and casts them in a new and old light. You start to get the picture that Russell is much more deep and highly intelligent then his outward exterior would lead most to believe. The narration is excellent and keeps you hooked in. It might nor be for everyone, but I think everyone and benefit from it.

    The Wolves of London is truly a hidden gem. Some might say it starts off slow, but it builds pace quickly and it stays interesting throughout. There are many twists and turns and the story is imaginative and the world goes from mundane to horrifying rather quickly. The characters are intriguing and well flushed out. This book if without a doubt worth your credit. I am eager to read the next book in the series.

    A classically trained actor who cut his teeth in the East Village's off-Broadway scene, Ron Perlman - a Golden Globe winner with starring roles in the Hellboy, Drive, Pacific Rim, and Sons of Anarchy - has traveled an offbeat path to showbiz success. His story involves rising from New York's tough Washington Heights neighborhood, enduring incredible hardships, and ignoring the naysayers who taunted him for his distinctive looks.

    Story

    First off this is an outstanding memoir. Ron holds nothing back in this telling of his life's story. The story is written in such a way that it alternates from crass to extremely deep and insightful. When Perlman goes deep you really have to prepare yourself for some mind blowing revaluation about mans personal and existential struggles in the world. There are these larger than life characters that make appearances throughout this memoir, which force you think "damn Ron seems to know or has worked with damn near everyone in the film industry". This is an outstanding work that I think anyone would benefit from reading. The cherry that's on top of this cake is that Ron narrates this book himself and as a narrator he's at the top of the heap in terms of talent and delivery. If you have never listened to his reading of " City of Thieves" you really should he delivers a world class performance.
