    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    I am now a Tina Fey fan. I like her narration,

    A chick book for sure, but I enjoyed as well.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    This was a great book about someone getting over the struggles in their life. A great narrator as well. I enjoyed it.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    It was a good narrative about the killing of Abraham Lincoln. I think if you are into Civil War history you would really like this book. I didn't mind Bill O'Reilly. Don't get it is you don't like him.

    The setting is the Georgia wilderness, where the state's most remote white-water river awaits. In the thundering froth of that river, in its echoing stone canyons, four men on a canoe trip discover a freedom and exhilaration beyond compare. And then, in a moment of horror, the adventure turns into a struggle for survival as one man becomes a human hunter who is offered his own harrowing deliverance.

    Story

    I never before listen to a book, then watched the movie, and decided the movie was better then the book. I did liked the narrator.

    There was way to much "I then became one with the river" types of stuff. I swear it took him an hour to climb a cliff "becoming one with every rock".

    Not my favorite book by a long shot.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    It sounded like it might be gory, but it really wasn't. I really liked it and would recommend it.

    The ending was a bit disappointing, but I wouldn't let that stop you from reading. Did she hit a deadline or something?

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "A Bit Graphic"
    Overall

    This was a very good story. I liked it but at times it seemed a bit like a documentary. There were a lot of facts and figures. I can see why someone might give up on it, but I really think it was very good if you listen until the end.

    It is also very graphic in a saving Private Ryan sort of way. If you do not want to hear about torture, starvation, and very detailed descriptions of body parts being removed you might want to skip this book.
    Don’t get me wrong I liked it but it is not for someone with a weak stomach.
