I'm a residential remodeling contractor and love to listen to books 8-12 hrs a day while I work. It keeps me focused better than music.

    Story

    Having read the original how to win friends, I noticed several of the exact same stories and lessons from the original text. Still they are certainly adequate stories that are appropriate for the lessons being taught. Well written and informative. But the main theme i got is if you wouldn't say it to your mom, don't post it on the net or in any social media. The original text seemed to have more "meat and potatoes" contained within the pages. This one seems to focus on what to post and not to post in social media. If you only read one of the two books, digital age or the original title, Id suggest reading the original. When the original text focuses on appropriate "snail mail" etiquette, the new version bears the same message substituting various "social media" for "letter" If you can make that mental substitution, just read the original text and you can get 90-95% of the New version's material from the original and maybe 20% more material that was cut for the digital edition.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (14196)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I love Steve's writing. I grew up in Bangor, Maine but now live in Alaska. Steve lives there still. I always enjoy the little snippets of Bangor found in Kings books. One such example was the pawn broker in this story shares the name of a pawn shop located on Main st Bangor, ME. (At least it was there 15 years ago on my last trip to Bangor.) There are others like this both in this title and others. Like the mention of my favorite doughnut shop, or the bakery.

    This is a fantastic story of a guy who is magically plopped down in a small town in the pre-digital age. when news was delivered to you door on paper like the bottles of milk. Time travel has always fascinated me. Excellent writing as always, a great performance with excellent character voicing even between different timelines. One character has mental issues and you can hear it in the narrators voice. You really feel like you are there as a silent observer listening to actual people talking as the narrator brings the characters to life.

    All By My Selves is comedy superstar Jeff Dunham's story as told by Jeff himself! This unique comedic audio release takes fans behind the curtain to explain how he turned a tired, vaudevillian art form into something truly modern and hip. Not only will Jeff reveal how he developed his act and lovable characters over the years, he'll also share the details of his life as working comedian and family man on the road.

    Story

    I sincerely enjoy Jeff's unique brand of comedy. I have bought each of his DVD's and even got to see him live once. I found it most interesting to learn how his career has progressed from High School kid who must have been the outsider "puppet geek" to his peers to being one of the best darn comics and entertainers of our times. I learned alot about the art of ventriloquism, and a brief history of the art as well as how Jeff has most certainly earned his place through his hard work, dedication and sheer will. As with all his shows, his characters add a nice blend of "Jeff's other selves" as his best loved characters come to life in this self narrated autobiography. (Unless you count the characters piping up when they have something to add as another narrator, but that would be pretty anal, don't you agree?)

    Fantastically written comic's biography. Never a dull moment, and I must admit I'm sorry to hear about Jeff's recent divorce. Hopefully he and his girls manage well in his new life and his new romance. Best wishes Jeff, and thanks for sharing your story with the fans.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Story

    Nice continuation of the story line from the original trilogy. If you haven't read the previous 3 books you won't be lost but obviously wont have the entire back story. The story is adequately paced and well written, great character voicing and a pretty decent ending too.
