  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames

    Once again, David Sedaris brings together a collection of essays so uproariously funny and profoundly moving that his legions of fans will fall for him all over again. He tests the limits of love when Hugh lances a boil from his backside, and pushes the boundaries of laziness when, finding the water shut off in his house in Normandy, he looks to the water in a vase of fresh cut flowers to fill the coffee machine.

    Kelley says: "Smokin'"
    "Good, though not what I expected"
    Overall

    This was the first time I have listened to anything by the author. From reading the other reviews I figured that it would be a comedy or at least funny. It took me almost 3 chapters to figure out the authors sense of humor. Once I did, I did occasionally find myself laughing out loud. Overall a good book, but if you are looking for some easy humor/comedy this isn't the book for you.

  • The Evolution of God

    In this sweeping narrative, which takes us from the Stone Age to the Information Age, Robert Wright unveils an astonishing discovery: there is a hidden pattern that the great monotheistic faiths have followed as they have evolved. Through the prisms of archeology, theology, and evolutionary psychology, Wright's findings overturn basic assumptions about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and are sure to cause controversy.

    Joseph says: "Very interesting and thought provoking"
    "Interesting, but was a Lecture"
    Overall

    This book was extremely interesting, and enlightening, but was definitely a lecture. I normally listen to books during my commute (about 1 hour 15 min each way), and go for entertainment. I figured that I would give this a try. It was interesting enough to keep my interest, but didn't help shorten the commute at all. Kind of felt like listening to a good lecture in college, but not something I would listen to normally on my "free" time
