    Official Book Club Selection is Kathy Griffin unplugged, uncensored, and unafraid to dish about what really happens on the road, away from the cameras, and at the star party after the show. (It's also her big chance to score that coveted book club endorsement she's always wanted. Are you there, Oprah? It's me, Kathy.)

    "like she's sitting next to you"
    Overall

    I normally avoid abridged audiobooks like the plague, but this one is good. Kathy doesn't read the book, but tells the story - it's very much like she's just sitting there telling you about her life. It's very real and VERY compelling.

  • Ready Player One

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Ernest Cline

    Story
    (10537)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story
    Would you listen to Ready Player One again? Why?

    I would listen to this again in a heartbeat! Wil Wheaton's performance took the story to a new level. I recommend this one frequently.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the esoteric 80s references and was so proud when I caught them.


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

    I absolutely would have listened to it all at once if I could.


    Any additional comments?

    The Oasis, the virtual world inhabited by the characters, seemed very possible. Often, I found myself thinking, "Yep. I can see that happening in my lifetime."

    What if—whoosh, right now, with no explanation—a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?That’s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened—not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children.

    Story

    I was shocked to hear this referred to as a "comic" take on a post-apocalyptic world. I don't recall actually laughing during this book at all. The story had potential, but I don't think it was fully explored. The end was so abrupt, I actually rewound the book to make sure I hadn't missed anything. The performance was good, but I don't think it's worth a listen for the performance alone. Skip this one.
