    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....

    I couldn't stand to hear it, or finish it! It is the worst book ever. It is a waste of a credit! I wish I could get my credit back. That is how bad this book is.

    In this all-new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci, worlds collide when government assassin Will Robie is caught in the crossfire with Oliver Stone and the Camel Club. Will Robie is closing in on his next target when he finds himself in the middle of a bank heist - and he's taken hostage alongside Oliver Stone. But is this just a simple bank job, or are the robbers after something even more valuable - and dangerous - than the cash in the vault?

    I like the fact that he merged Will Robin and Camel Club, the only problem with the story is that it too short. It left me wanting more!

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Jane says: "Definitely entertaining. I had some smiles."

    Story

    I love the fact that he kept the same reader for the book, Peter Giles is Mickey Haler; the story fast worded past his run for prosecutor, I was initially disappointed, but the more the story went forward the less it mattered to me. The story kept me engrossed to the point where I yelled out at the climax of the story. Awesome, way to end the story. I hope he keeps the Mikey Haler character for a long time to come.

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    Since I am not a huge Stephen King fan this was not on the top of my summer reading (listening) list, but I heard reviews of and read the synopsis and I was hooked. I love that it is not overly violent, but it give you a chance to look at in my opinion a fresh look at time travel, some aspects are a little off, and the use of phrase the past is “obdurate” was overly used, but over all I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to anyone who loves a little Sci-Fi.

    The Summons: Once Judge Atlee was a powerful figure in Clanton, Mississippi. Now the judge is a sick, lonely old man who has withdrawn to his sprawling ancestral home. Knowing the end is near, Judge Atlee has issued a summons for his two sons to return to Clanton to discuss his estate. The Brethren: They call themselves the Brethren: three disgraced former judges doing time in a Florida federal prison. In prison these judges-turned-felons can reminisce about old court cases, dispense a little jailhouse justice, and contemplate where their lives went wrong. Or they can use their time in prison to get very rich, very fast.

    Michael says: "Great Performance"

    Story

    The Summons was good, but obvious. I could see the end midway through the book, but I still throughly enjoyed the story, it made we want more for story to end differently.

    The Brethern is a really good story that is written very well. I enjoyed the story but I didn't like the ending though. I would have chosen for things to end differently all the way around. Not enough background as to why somethings operated the way they did.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    I thought this was going to be obvious, but it wasn't. I am glad I was wrong about the centeral character. I really enjoyed the story, but there needed to be a better explination as to why the centeral character behaved the way he did. I would recomend reading this story...it is classic Grisham.

    Mad Women is a tell-all account of life in the New York advertising world of the 1960s and '70s from Jane Maas, a female copywriter who succeeded in the primarily male environment portrayed by the hit TV show Mad Men. Fans of the show are dying to know how accurate it is: did people really have that much sex in the office? Were there really three-martini lunches? Were women really second-class citizens? Jane Maas says the answer to all three questions is unequivocally yes....

    Over the course of a steamy and tense afternoon, 12 jurors deliberate the fate of a 19-year-old boy alleged to have murdered his own father. A seemingly open and shut case turns complicated, igniting passions and hidden prejudices.

    I had seen the movie years ago in black and white. So when I saw that this was a dramatization of the book I wanted to get it. It did not disappoint. I was glued to my seat. I didn't want to stop listening to it. I just really enjoyed this book. You get so into it and it makes you think about how we judge one another based really on nothing really at all but; impressions, stereotypes, life experience with someone similar but rarely on fact. This was excellent it, listen to it and then share it.!!!

    At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side”. Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his 10th birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

    Story

    The book starts out a little slow, the story is sort of disjointed, but once the story gets going however the suspense builds and you start to get into it. I was dissapointed in how the story ended. It really made no sense to me, it was a quick read (listen) and it left me wanting to know more. In some cases that could be considered a good thing in this case, I don't feel like it is.

    I enjoy David's writing, and this book gave me a history of the camel club, and the character dynamics. Thought I had the book totally figured out and I didn't. That alone is why I gave this story four stars. The insite into Oliver Stone's back story was excellent. Great character develop, great story line. Excellent book! read it, you won't be disappointed .
