    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"
    "Impressive!"
    Overall

    I'm not sure what my expectations were when I purchased this audio book but Rob Lowe totally impressed me. What an amazing story teller. His stories have substance and really give you a glimpse into the type of man he is. He is a caring, intelligent man with integrity. I highly recommend this book. If you weren't a fan before or even if you were a fan of him in the 80's, this will totally change your perspective on him and give you a glimpse into the depth of his being. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Rob! Hope to see another book from you in the future!

    Ciccone's extraordinary memoir is based on his life and 47 years of growing up with and working with his sister - the most famous woman in the world.

    Kathy says: "Juicy, Revealing, full of Suprises"
    "Interesting book"
    Overall

    I was expecting a rather nasty tell-all book but feel that Christopher Ciccone gave a very balanced and fair portrayal of Madonna and his relationship with her. I was even surprised at how he seemed to defend some of her actions. Christopher narrates the book himself which makes it more interesting although his delivery is quite monotone. Overall, it's an interesting book but if you are looking for any gossip like details, you won't find it here. It's a mature read and one which is good for passing a quiet afternoon.

    In this historic memoir, the late Ted Kennedy takes us inside his family, re-creating life with his parents and brothers and explaining their profound impact on him. For the first time, he describes his heartbreak and years of struggle in the wake of their deaths. Through it all, he describes his work in the Senate on the major issues of our time - civil rights, Vietnam, Watergate, the quest for peace in Northern Ireland - and the cause of his life: improved health care for all Americans

    Mark says: "A Walk through the 20th Century"
    "Good read"
    Overall

    It gives you insight into the Kennedy family and why there was such a drive for success. A very good, easy read.

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "Simply adequate"
    Overall

    The story itself is intersting but gets overshadowed by the overly descriptive language and detail. At points you just want to say "get on with it". I also feel the author's tone is not consistent through out. In some places it seems classically written and in others, slang is used when the "proper" words are expected. It's a short read/listen but I would not recommend it.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "The narrator ruined it..."
    Overall

    This was my first Stephen King novel and likely my last. I found the constant references to people's bodily functions to be rather distracting. What made it worse was the AWFUL narration. The narrator is condescending and uses the most flighty "dumb" voices for the female characters - they almost sound as dumb as the children. TERRIBLE. The story might be ok but it was an absolute STRUGGLE to finish the book because of my constant desire to tell the narrator to just stop with the silly voices and get on with the story! Very, very distracting.

His groundbreaking revelations shed light not just on business but on the way every human being acts and lives around the world.

    "Good book - poor narrator"
    Overall

    This was a very interesting book. A quick, easy "read"... The most annoying aspect of the book was the robot like narration. Awful. Could've been a much more enjoyable experience had they selected a more upbeat narrator.

    Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

    Joe says: "worthwhile"
    "Great story & excellent narration"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had read "The Girl who played with Fire" first not realizing that "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was the first in the series. I enjoyed this book much more than the second in the series. Great writing and excellent narration make it a recommended "read".
