  • Never Have Your Dog Stuffed: And Other Things I've Learned

    • ABRIDGED (4 hrs and 34 mins)
    • By Alan Alda

    Story
    (48)

    He's one of America's most recognizable and acclaimed actors: a star on Broadway, an Oscar nominee for The Aviator, and the only person to ever win Emmys for acting, writing, and directing, during his 11 years on M*A*S*H. Now Alan Alda has written a memoir as elegant, funny, and affecting as his greatest performances.

    Lauren says: "Worth It!"
    "Not for those interested solely in MASH anecdotes"
    Overall

    I really did'nt need to get inside Alan Alda's head but that's where you'll be during and after listening to this book.

    You'll also be treated to a visit inside his famous father's head and his certifiably crazy mothers head. You'll also be treated to Alda's frequent nightmares.

    If you're after hollywood dirt Alda casually reels off a list of the actresses he has kissed but it's done perfunctorily and without further comment. He also tosses of one quick anecdote relating to each of his co-stars for 11 years on MASH.

  • The Brass Verdict: A Novel

    Story
    (1835)

    Things are finally looking up for defense attorney Mickey Haller. After two years of wrong turns, Haller is back in the courtroom. When Hollywood lawyer Jerry Vincent is murdered, Haller inherits his biggest case yet: the defense of Walter Elliott, a prominent studio executive accused of murdering his wife and her lover. But as Haller prepares for the case that could launch him into the big time, he learns that Vincent's killer may be coming for him next.

    Jeff says: "Five Star Book; Three Star Narration"
    "Spoiled a bit by lackluster narration"
    Overall

    Michael Connelly writes a wonderful novel. I believe I've read 11 of his 18 books. The Brass verdict is high on my favorites list but is spoiled in parts because the narrator, Peter Giles apparently forgets who is speaking and there is very little differentiation in his voice to give clues. Maybe it's the director's fault. Still is a great listen for mystery and courtroom fans.
