  • Here's Johnny!: My Memories of Johnny Carson, The Tonight Show, and 40 Years of Friendship

    Brilliant in front of the camera but shy in person, Johnny Carson seldom gave interviews. But no one knew him better than Ed McMahon, Carson's personal friend and showbiz sidekick for almost 40 years. Now, with Johnny's blessings before he died, McMahon can finally share all the stories that only he knows.

    Christopher says: "What was Johnny Carson like? Let Ed tell you..."
    "He really did like him"
    Overall

    I agree with the the previous reviewer, the author should have let someone else read it- I now appreciate a good reader even more! You do get the impression that Mr McMahon did respect and like his boss and even now is the ultimate loyal friend and employee. This is not a tell-all, air dirty linen book but rather a warm and kind memoir.

    Flavia de Luce - "part Harriet the Spy, part Violet Baudelaire from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" (The New York Times Book Review) - takes her remarkable sleuthing prowess to the unexpectedly unsavory world of Canadian boarding schools in the captivating new mystery from New York Times best-selling author Alan Bradley.

    Tomgotsue says: "A little disappointing"

    Story

    Flavia belongs at home in England and I guess, for me, on paper and not on audio. This was the least enjoyable of the series. Will I read the next one ? Well, of course. Flavia's circumstances do not mean I've stopped loving her but I hope she'll be back in her beloved countryside.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Michael G. Kurilla says: "Macgyver on Mars"
    "My favorite hero this year"

    Story

    I know, it's only the fifth of January but I really think I'll be hard pressed to fall so hard for another book this year. I would have defiantly snuck a peak to see what happened at the end if I had a printed book. The narrator nailed it too.

    In 6 Rainier Drive listeners are whisked away to Cedar Cove, Washington, where Justine and Seth Gunderson are feeling the shock of the arson that destroyed their restaurant. They're eager to move on, but divided over which direction to take.

    Amazon Customer says: "An Excellent Romance/Family Drama"
    "The story is comfortable, the reading is not."

    Story
    How could the performance have been better?

    The actual words coming out of the reader's mouth were finely performed but there is a lack of fluidity between sentences. Almost as if each individual sentence had been tackled in and by itself and not as part of a whole paragraph. Or perhaps it was that the pause between sentences were too long.
