    Story
    (36)

    The partners at Finley & Figg—all two of them—often refer to themselves as “a boutique law firm.” Boutique, as in chic, selective, and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who’ve been in the trenches much too long making way too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. But then change comes their way....

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

    I listened to the abridged version (in the car, while traveling) so some of the story's development may have been removed. The plot was intriguing and the story moved quickly enough; I would recommend to other readers who enjoy John Grisham but I didn't think the selection was one of his best books.

    Story
    (9907)

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Chris says: "Good Biography, Fine narrator"
    "Listened to it, from beginning to end, twice!"

    What did you love best about Steve Jobs?

    An amazing life narration, skillfully written and told, about a brilliant man who drop-kicked technology forward. The book highlighted Steve Jobs' extraordinary talents and flaws in the context of his personal and professional life, and the entire story was mesmerizing, from beginning to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Steve Jobs, his own best and worst friend.


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

    Genius among us.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll keep this book in my library, to read again.

    Story

    Carol Burnett is one of the most beloved and revered actresses and performers in America. The Carol Burnett Show was seen each week by millions of adoring fans and won 25 Emmys in its remarkable 11-year run. Now, in This Time Together, Carol really lets her hair down and tells one funny or touching or memorable story after another.

    Would you try another book from Carol Burnett and/or Carol Burnett?

    No, I would not listen to another book written/narrated by Carol Burnett.


    What was most disappointing about Carol Burnett’s story?

    As she is a noted comedienne, I had expected a recollection with more warmth and/or humor. Found neither and became bored.


    What about Carol Burnett’s performance did you like?

    She narrated her life well.


    Could you see This Time Together being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    If the book was made into a movie, I would not pay $ to see it. The book was a real turn-off.

  • Bossypants

    (13671)

    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....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Very engaging and likeable. Enjoyed tremendously!"

    If you could sum up Bossypants in three words, what would they be?

    I listen to it over and over again!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bossypants?

    The journey of her career, from Second City to SNL to 30 Rock.


    What about Tina Fey’s performance did you like?

    Her humbleness and the support/praise she gives to her peers.


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

    Yes! Absolutely!


    Any additional comments?

    A great "listen"!
