  • Something Wicked This Way Comes

    Best friends Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade know there's something odd in the late October air. It all begins when a lightning-rod salesman appears one evening and insists that they take one of his contraptions covered with mystical protection symbols. Later, the boys look on as an eerie carnival rolls into town. Mysterious and sinister events take place, and what they witness on the carousel is enough to send them running.

    Story

    I forget sometimes why I love Ray Bradury. He was so in loves with words, choosing just the right adjectives and descriptive devices. And he's such a master of suspense. Of course I took offense at his commentary on women as a writer from his time period so I gave him a four.

    In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

    Excellent listen! It has a slower start but delves deeper than Ender's Game. Everyone who likes Ender's will like this one just as much. Mr. Card has something to say to us all and it is in this book.

    In this inspiring and candid book, Jane Fonda, number-one best-selling author, actress, and workout pioneer, gives us a blueprint for living well and for making the most of life, especially the second half of it. Covering sex, love, food, fitness, self-understanding, spiritual and social growth, and your brain, Prime Time offers a vision for successful living and maturing, A to Z.

    It's painfully boring. I couldn't get through it. She seems to be just another has been trying to die rich and seem like she learned some greater lesson than the rest of us. Sorry Jane.

  • Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary

    Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.

    Patricia says: "Enjoyable Book"
    "Bleh"
    Overall

    I purchased this audible book because I had already heard the segment about the cat and the mouse and it was very funny. The other stories were unpleasantly violent and really not funny at all. Too bad, I have always liked David Sedaris. This is far from his best work.

    People learn to work for money...but never to have money work for them. That's what Robert Kiyosaki says in this guide about what rich dads tell their children that poor dads do not. Browse all Rich Dad titles.

    Overall

    A straight forward how to with no suggestions of how to get started unless you are young, single and have no other familial responsibilities. All of his examples are, like, apartment buildings. Can't afford an income property yet? Then this guy can't help you.

    John and Jenny were just beginning their life together. They were young and in love, with a perfect little house and not a care in the world. Then they brought home Marley, a wriggly yellow furball of a puppy. Life would never be the same.

    You will fall in love with the dog, the people, the way they live they're lives. You will wonder at how unique each life is and how special it is to experience true love whatever species you are privileged to recieve it from.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Overall

    This story is mesmerizing. I found myself staying longer on the treadmill or just sitting in the car in the garage to finish a chapter. The use of multiple actors to capture the different ages during naration was very effective.

  • What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love

    What Remains begins with loss and returns to loss. A small plane plunges into the ocean, carrying John Kennedy, Anthony's cousin, and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, Carole's closest friend. Three weeks later Anthony dies of cancer. The summer of the plane crash, the four friends were meant to be cherishing Anthony's last days. Instead, Carole and Anthony mourned John and Carolyn, even as Carole planned her husband's memorial.

    Andrea says: "Kept me listening!"
    "Tragedy and Immeasurable Courage"
    Overall

    WHAT REMAINS is an amazing and heart wrenching account of real people, regardless of their fame or stature. The author clearly wrote it out of grief with no desire to capitalize on anyone's death. I was struck by the enormous weight placed on the shoulders of John Kenedy not just because of who he was but because of the part he played in his family. Always the one who new what to say or do to difuse tensions, bring people together, and comfort others; they waited for him to sweep in and make everything right in all situations. I could see why John loved Caroline over all others. She was an amazing and dynamic person with a heart the size of Alaska. She took it upon herself to adopt people she hardly knew and, like a rock, see them through to the very end. Tracing these individuals lives through tragedy, triumph and ultimate loss reminded me that it is no less difficult to be a human being regardless of one's station in life. I also realized that it had never crossed my mind that all these people had fascinating careers and personal aspirations seperate from their family fortunes. My heart was deeply touched and I now feel justified in my grief over the loss of these people I never knew.
