    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    What made the experience of listening to Back to Blood the most enjoyable?

    I have not finished the book yet, but I have to tell you...I live in Miami, and the pronunciation of some of the areas in Miami is horrendous... It's Brickell Ave, not BRICK-EL! Come On- Man!
    I can't stand the obnoxious laugh of the doctor. Even with this, it is one of the best books I have listened to in a long time. I do not want it to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nestor... so real


    What does Lou Diamond Phillips bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He would be great if he learned how to pronounce the names of some of the most famous areas in Miami... It's Brickell, not BRICK - EL, and the annoying laugh of the Doctor.


    Who was the most memorable character of Back to Blood and why?

    so far, all of them

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    Richard Delman says: "Dave Robicheaux lives!"
    "Enjoyed, but too descriptive"

    What did you love best about Creole Belle?

    The narration in the New Orleans accent made this book special. It's a good story, but too much description of New Orleans and and the environs. too many words, get to the point, tell the story!Not interested in all the flowers, trees, sky...Enuf is enuf.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Robicheaux.. He is sensitive, compassionate and the kind of character you get to like.


    What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The way they speak in N.O. All of the characters had a special voice and way of talking, it made me feel like I was there with them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    NO

  • Bossypants

    Story
    (13418)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Bossypants"
    Overall

    Very disappointed.. Tina Fey is one of my favorites performers, but her narrative is too "cute".
    She has so many interesting things to tell us but she rushes through, you would think she is in a hurry to finish reading the book.
