  • Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir

    The son of a classical pianist straight out of the Bronx of old Archie comics, Steven Tyler was born to be a rock star. Weaned on Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, Mick and his beloved Janis Joplin, Tyler began tearing up the streets and the stage as a teenager before finally meeting his "mutant twin" and legendary partner, Joe Perry. In this addictively listenable memoir, Tyler unabashedly recounts the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three decades and riffs on the music that gives it all meaning.

    If you could sum up Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? in three words, what would they be?

    Long winded, not always linear, from the heart


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is pure Steven Tyler so there is alot of phallic symbolism, sexual inuendo and over description of situations. It's great!!


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

    Sounds like Steven Tyler...like he's from the same place, speaking the way Steven Tyler would.

    Life can be hard: your lover cheats on you; you lose a family member; you can’t pay the bills. And it can be great: you’ve had the hottest sex of your life; you get that plum job; you muster the courage to write your novel. Sugar—the once-anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus, now revealed as Cheryl Strayed, author of the best-selling memoir Wild—is the person thousands turn to for advice. Tiny Beautiful Things gathers the best of "Dear Sugar" in one place and includes never-before-published columns.

    Melinda says: "A Spoonful of Sugar"

    What did you like best about Tiny Beautiful Things? What did you like least?

    The little chunks of life advice that I could apply to myself. Some deep insight that at times affected me to the core.


    If you’ve listened to books by Cheryl Strayed before, how does this one compare?

    I thought because it was read by the author that it would be awesome but I was very disappointed. I had recently listened to Wild by Cheryl Strayed. That book was absolutly outstanding so I thought this book would be the same. I guess it all depends on the narrator :)


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrartion was without any emotion, almost monotone and detatched.

  • 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.

    What did you love best about Wild?

    The detailed yet clear descriptions of emothions and terrain that I could so easily relate to.


    Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne – was your favorite?

    The author


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too numerous to count! So many life epiphanies that made sense to me and gave me tingles or brought tears.

  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    If you could sum up The Secret Race in three words, what would they be?

    This audio book was eye opening, well written, well read, and clear to those who are not involved in the cycling sport. Fantastic! Could not stop listening once I started.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Race?

    The sheer honesty through out the entire book. So human with so much emotion. So real and yet so unbelievable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The detail and description he was able to recount in his recount of personal stories.


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

    Yes.....both. Absolutely amazing.....felt like I was in this world of cycling with Tyler.


    Any additional comments?

    A must listen!

    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....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bossypants to be better than the print version?

    Yes because the inflection and comedic timing and delivery comes across the way she intended.


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

    Laughed out loud...a lot :)
