    Not one to shy away from controversy, Ann Coulter once again brings her no-holds-barred approach to the current state of politics and culture, and in this highly charged election year, her take on issues is certain to attract major attention from across the political spectrum. Always entertaining, Coulter is one of the most talked about figures in America today.

    John says: "Another Winner for Ann"
    "Funny but scary."
    Overall

    One of the funniest books I have listened to. Wonderful narration. This is a book that the media will make EVERY effort to demonize because it so factually accounting the many, many instances of media bias. A must read for anyone who thinks the news media tells them the truth.

  • Ready Player One

    Story
    (8256)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Travis says: "ADD TO CART, POWER UP +10000"
    "Who is the intended audience?"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Ready Player One the most enjoyable?

    It was a good story concept, simply told.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ernest Cline? Why or why not?

    No, this book was aimed at a different demographic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. Regrettably, the scenes that were meant to be stirring did not connect with me. It clearly does connect with many people.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be easily accessible to young readers since it is told in a straightforward style, involves young characters, and avoids adult themes. Having said that, the backdrop of the story would seem to most appeal to those who were gamers in the '80s and World of Warcraft players today. This would place the demographic around age 40, as is Ernest Cline himself. I happen to have been playing Atari games in the '80s myself and continue to play modern FPS games. I don't, however, have the same nostalgia for the old days, nor empathy with game obsession or teenage romance, all of which would help to fully appreciate this book.
