  • The Martian Child

    Story
    (43)

    Gerrold, a science fiction writer from California, adopts a son who has a slight behavioral problem. He believes himself to be a Martian. Gerrold begins the long, involving work of trying to earn the acceptance of Dennis, a hyperactive eight-year-old who desperately wants a father's love, but is so insecure he feels he must be an alien. Gerrold's semi-autobiographical memoir of the first two years with Dennis is a funny, endearing, heartbreaking, and beautifully written testament to fatherhood.

    I was disappointed by this audio book. I've never heard such a boring reading. It was delivered in a monotone. The book itself needed more editorial pruning. It had many long segments of self-glorification by the author. It stated that it was a novel, but based on a true story. It shuld have simply been written as a memoir. it would have been easier to take. The subject of adoption of a school-age child is one that could be of interest to many, but not the way this one was told.

    Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed, especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery, to the latest, coolest pram, to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician. But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble.

    I read all of the previous shopaholic books the old fashioned way. This was the first I listened to. I loved the narrator! This was the perfect book to listen to while lying on the beach.

    Honey Santana, impassioned, willful, possibly bipolar, self-proclaimed "queen of lost causes", has a scheme to help rid the world of irresponsibility, indifference, and dinnertime sales calls. She's taking rude, gullible Relentless, Inc., telemarketer Boyd Shreave and his less-than-enthusiastic mistress, Eugenie, into the wilderness of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands for a gentle lesson in civility. What she doesn't know is that she's being followed by her Honey-obsessed former employer.

    Overall

    I loved this book. I found myself wondering multiple times as I listened how he was going to bring it all together. His characters are so quirky, but lovable, (except Piejack). I laughed out loud often, which got me some weird looks as I was on the treadmill at the gym! Great escapist listening .

    Join Ann Brashares' beloved sisterhood once again in a dazzling, fearless novel. It's a summer that will forever change the lives of Lena, Carmen, Bee, and Tibby, here and now, past and future, together and apart.

    "Racy"
    Overall

    This book took it to a new level. It was very realistic, but I had to have a talk with my 15-year-old daughter before I let her read it. It opened a good discussion, but this book might be a bit much for some girls due to the depiction of budding sexuality. Especially Lena's story line. It was very entertsining, and a good wrap-up to the series. I hope Ms. Cabot brings these characters back after college.
