  • Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll

    Two sisters. Two voices. One Heart.

    The mystery of "Magic Man." The wicked riff of "Barracuda." The sadness and beauty of "Alone." The raw energy of "Crazy On You." These songs, and so many more, are part of the fabric of American music. Heart, fronted by Ann and Nancy Wilson, has given fans everywhere classic, raw, and pure badass rock and roll for more than three decades. As the only sisters in rock who write their own music and play their own instruments, Ann and Nancy have always stood apart - certainly from their male counterparts but also from their female peers.

    A fantastic insight into the Wilson sisters rise to fame & how they survived the fame to become true artists. They paved the way for women in rock & have the scars to prove it.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Story

    I had great hopes for this book, but I found myself dreading it when I forced myself to listen to the story. There were bright moments when the story dealt with the characters but there was way to much time (maybe why it was 45 hours) spent on how gemstones were acquired.

    Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo. Now, Dutton is thrilled to introduce him to America.

    Story

    I almost didn't get this book due to the negative reviews about the accents. I admit they were a bit weird at first but I would hate for anyone to miss this great story due to the bad reviews. I got used to the accents though I don't know why they made that choice. The author has a great writing style which translates well into English. I actually liked it better in some ways than the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series. A bit less preachy and better characterizations.

    Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of 15, when her soul-wrenching song "Society's Child" became a hit. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In Society's Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures - and the hopes and dreams - of an extraordinary life.

    Story

    Janet Ian is a truly amazing person. Her talent as a signer, guitarist and song writer is obvious by her music but she's also a great writer. The road to success and back again is inspirational, even to those of us who lack musical talent. I especially liked how she blended her songs into the book, something I've found lacking in other biographies about musicians. She definitely deserved the Grammy for this performance!
