    In Reefer Madness, the best-selling author of Fast Food Nation investigates America's black market and its far-reaching influence on our society through three of its mainstays - pot, porn, and illegal immigrants.

    Boulderite says: "Great Investigative Journalism"

    Overall

    Reefer Madness and Fast Food Nation are both MUST READS. Eric Schlosser has a gift for delivering non fiction in a totally engaging way.

    Stranger in a Strange Land tells the story of Valentine Michael Smith, an earthling born and educated on Mars, who arrives on Earth with superhuman powers and a total ignorance of the mores of man. Smith is destined to become a freak, a media commodity, a scam artist, a searcher, and finally, a messiah.

    Harris says: "A Parable for the Ages"
    "Stranger in a Strange Land"

    Heinlein's best work and a must read for any science fiction fan

  • Under the Banner of Heaven: A Story of Violent Faith

    Story
    (563)

    At the core of this book is an appalling double murder committed by two Mormon fundamentalist brothers, Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a revelation from God commanding them to kill their blameless victims. Weaving the story of the Lafferty brothers and their fanatical brethren with a clear-eyed look at Mormonism's violent past, Krakauer examines the underbelly of the most successful homegrown faith in the United States, and finds a distinctly American brand of religious extremism.

    Elysabeth Cummings says: "Interesting @ arm's length"

    Chilling!

  • Star Trek: The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2

    Many unanswered questions remain about the terrible Eugenics Wars that raged on Earth during the 1990s, an apocalyptic conflict that brought civilization to the brink of a new dark age. Centuries later, as Capt. James T. Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise are forced to defend a colony of genetically enhanced humans against Klingon aggression and sabotage, Kirk must probe deeper into the past - and into the glory days of one of the greatest adversaries he has ever faced.

    Stephen says: "A very good listen"
    "Eugenics Wars"
    Overall

    Eugenics Wars combines Star Trek lore with current conspiracy theory and Area 51 mythology. It is light, clever and entertaining listening fare.

  • Choke

    Story
    (138)

    Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's controversial and blazingly original debut novel, introduced a fresh and even renegade talent to American fiction, one who has retooled the classic black humor of Terry Southern and Kurt Vonnegut for the lunacy of the millennial age. In this novel, Choke, he gives listeners a vision of life and love and sex and mortality that is both chillingly brilliant and teeth-rattlingly funny.

    Pamela says: "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"
    "Choke"
    Overall

    Brilliantly perverse, stunningly misogynistic and deliciously sacrilegious.

    ( btw--at 7 hours, I believe this is the unabridged version )

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Story
    (311)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them"
    Overall

    Great book! Insightful, touching, inspired and consistently entertaining.
