    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Awesome"

    Richard "The Ice Man" Kuklinski led a double life beyond anything ever seen on The Sopranos, becoming one of the most notorious professional assassins in American history while hosting neighborhood barbecues in suburban New Jersey. Now, after 240 hours of face-to-face interviews with Kuklinski and his wife and daughters, author Philip Carlo tells his extraordinary story.

    Eileen C says: "You must buy this audio only if..."
    "Outstanding!"
    Overall

    I hung on every word, the narration and the content was riveting.
    If its all completely true, only God and the Iceman know, either way I was wildly entertained.

    Story
    (43)

    At age 10, Tatum O'Neal became the youngest Oscar winner in history for her performance in the film classic Paper Moon. As the sidekick to her father, Ryan O'Neal, she became a fixture at the most glamorous Hollywood parties and counted celebrities among her childhood friends.

    Deb says: "started out strong, but ended weakly"
    "I enjoyed it"
    Overall

    I read the book when it first came out but the audio is better as Tatum's own voice brings it to life.

    Stori Telling is a chance for Tori to set the record straight on her personal life and to let listeners experience the truly unique life she's led--with its undeniable childhood privileges, tabloid misperceptions, career successes, and personal regrets. This is Tori's opportunity to define herself on her own terms.

    Timothy says: "Fantastic!"
    "Entertaining"
    Overall

    What can I say, I wasn't an obvious fan of Tori's at first but I love stories with scary mothers. Its good entertainment.

    Many in our modern society are in the midst of an existential crisis. The ideals of previous generations have gradually eroded, leaving nothing to fill the vacuum. Choices for what to do with one's life are virtually limitless. So how do you find your life's direction?

    It started out good and then started giving dull,detailed directions of how to leave the country, right down to making lists and canceling the mail. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
