  • Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama

    For decades, the Left has been putting on a play with themselves as heroes in an ongoing civil rights move­ment - which they were mostly absent from at the time. Long after pervasive racial discrimination ended, they kept pretending America was being run by the Klan and that liberals were black America’s only protectors. It took the O. J. Simpson verdict - the race-based acquittal of a spectacularly guilty black celebrity as blacks across America erupted in cheers - to shut down the white guilt bank.

    Would you listen to Mugged again? Why?

    Yes. There is so much information. I want to re listen so I can write down the cases and research them myself. I also want to read the books written by other authors she mentions.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The overwhelming evidence of media bias. The shameless race baiting by liberal journalists. They salivate over human misery and create it when it doesn't exist. They will not allow racism to die. They lie. They sympathize with murderers. They are the worst racists of all. They use race to leverage power, and they know they can use racial demagoguery to simultaneously increase power amongst their piers and bully dissenters into silence.


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

    I like watching Ann being interviewed, she is really funny. This is no different.


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

    Yes and no. It is very interesting, but also made me so disgusted I had to take a break now and then.


    Any additional comments?

    Like I said, this book will make you sick, in a good way, and it is oddly empowering. If what Ann says is true, then we should all be truly brave like Ann Coulter because to do anything less is cowardly and complicit with the worst kind of bigotry, racism, and evil.

    Makeda , Supreme Archdomina of House Balaash, is known throughout the Iron Kingdoms for her leadership of the mighty Skorne Empire, but it was not always so… Before the coming of the Skorne Empire into the west, Makeda was little more than the second child of a great house, but through her will, determination, and adherence to the code of hoksune, she rose above all others. For the first time the secrets of both Makeda and her people are revealed in the tale of their epic struggle for honor and survival in Instruments of War.

    Larry Correia is my favorite author, but this book isn't my cup of tea. That said, it is exciting, peppered with a bit of very dry humor, and vivid. The characters are consistent, and their motivations clear. I used to love this sword and sorcery kind of fantasy, but it's not my thing anymore. If you love the Monster Hunter series or the Grimnoir series (I have listened to them multiple times) this is nothing like them. I hate to be negative about my main man Correia, but the narrator wasn't awesome either. Her voice and delivery lacked vitality. I recommend the book if you are a fan of the genre or play Warmachine.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    This is a great series. I don't know how Correia manages to write so prolifically or so well, but he does. The narrator is fantastic. I wish them both the best.

    The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

    What did you love best about Demonic?

    Undeniable evidence to back her thesis. I have been doing my own research into some of the facts she uses to support her argument. She is absolutely correct each time. I would like to fact check the entire book, but I'll have to buy a hard copy because there is so much. Not a problem, she is an author worth supporting.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are no "characters," but Ann's writing style is hilarious and insightful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The French Revolution is extremely interesting and frightening. It sounded like what would happen if Occupy Wall Street got its way. I also liked the discussion of pre WWII Germany. I have been doing my own research into this subject to find out how the Nazi party rose to power. Interesting fact: preWWII German government was trying to stimulate their economy by borrowing massive amounts of money from other countries and using it on social programs for the German people. Right before the collapse of their currency, they were spending more on each citizen than any country in the history of the world. Sound familiar?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Mass Hysteria


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. I loved her final conclusions. Especially the end where she calls conservatives to task for wimping when the mob gets violent. She is exactly right about the violent tendencies Liberals exhibit. A family member of mine saw something I wrote about the RNC. He immediately wrote in response, "racist $#!* bags!" I rest my case. My only gripe about the audiobook is the reader, she would be better reading a romance novel.

    After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends - those poor romantic fools - plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache. Until Marielle.... She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past.

    Story

    I rarely say I HATE something, but this book, I HATE. I was delighted when I found Kerrelyn Sparks "Love at Stake" series was made into audiobooks, and there were even a few I had not read. I was even happier to find that Connor was the subject of one of the books. I was a little concerned when I read the summary, but decided to buy when I read the glowing reviews. After listening (suffering) through half an hour, I deleted every trace of this book from my computer. The thought of an angel in the predicament described in the book, calling out "Glory to God," and the descriptions of her "nipples pebbling" was nothing less than stomach churning terrible/wrong/yucky. I SHOULD have listened to the sample, but I never expected this. If the sacrilege wasn't bad enough, the narrator makes it even worse. She is very good at providing the angel's voice, which makes it less funny and more real (weird, I know). This book made me feel like the time I walked in on a friend's dad using the bathroom.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Stephenie says: "Great series. Worth every credit."
    "BONES!"
    Overall

    Thoroughly enjoyable! Action, humor, romance and great characters. Bones was awesome. A fully developed character, not just arm candy. I loved that he had a cockney accent. Cat was very like-able, a refreshing change from the either over angsty or trying-way-to-hard-to-be-funny female leads found in so many novels of this genre. It was also soooo nice not to have nearly ubiquitous you're-not-telling-me-what-to-do-you-arrogant-man scene. Jeaniene Frost was clever enough to convey Bone's and Cat's feelings for each other in a dangerous situation without relying on that tired "plot device." Audible, please record the rest of this series!

    Victorian romance mixes seamlessly with elegant prose and biting wit—and werewolves—in Gail Carriger’s delightful debut novel. Soulless introduces Alexia Tarabotti, a parasol-wielding Londoner getting dangerously close to spinster status. But there are more important things than finding a husband. For Alexia was born without a soul, giving her the ability to render any vampire or werewolf completely powerless.

    Pamela I Greene says: "Amelia Peabody has competition"
    "Fantastic!"

    Absolutely fabulous! Gail Carriger is in danger of becoming my favorite author. "Soulless" was funny, romantic, and exciting. Great if you like science fiction, romance, or steam punk. In addition, the narrator was excellent. The best I've ever heard. This book was worth every penny!

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Overall

    Yes, I am an adult woman and I know this book is for teens, but there is so much Twilight hysteria, I had to know what it was all about. Very little. The book is written through the eyes of Bella, the "heroine." She, inexplicably, is the soul mate for the 150 year old Edward. Inexplicable because she is graceless, humorless, and in general a poor sport. This book provides terrible role modeling for young women, as Bella continually worships Edward's beauty and repeatedly says, "Don't leave me!" What does Edward see in her? Apparently she smells delicious.

    Mr. Darcy, Vampyre starts where Pride and Prejudice ends and introduces a dark family curse so perfectly that the result is a delightfully thrilling, spine-chilling, breathtaking read. A dark, poignant and visionary continuation of Austen's beloved story, this tale is full of danger, darkness and immortal love.

    emmy says: "Not in the tradition of Jane"
    "Mr. Darcy, boring Vampyre"
    Overall

    I love Jane Austin, I have a weakness for vampire romances, and I adore Mr. Darcy. These should all go together well, right? Not in this book. The first half is spent waiting for something to happen. The second half is spent wishing we could get more details about what is happening. The author sticks rigidly to Austin's style, but without the humor which made it so charming. We end up with a fairly boring travelogue punctuated by a few frightening moments and poor Lizzy wondering if she is in bad odor with Mr. Darcy. This could have been an extremely romantic, funny, sexy novel. It was not.

    He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    Stacy says: "A Whole New Take on Vampire Mythology"

    Overall

    This book takes itself way too seriously. The male lead character is cold and angry. The author made up for his lack of depth and likability by describing in vivid, excruciating detail everything he and the female lead did in bed. Gross. I ended up fast forwarding through the sex just to finish the darn thing. I could not detect any reason for the stupendous (emphasis on the stupid) chemistry between the leads other than the author had decided to write a romantic vampire novel. I read some favorable reviews, and I can see how this book might appeal to some, but I like characters with less angst. I give the book one star and the narrator one star. Hillary Huber did a very good job (I'd give her more stars, but that would help the book). God knows how she suffered through reading all the sex scenes without laughing or opening a window for some fresh air.
