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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
