  • American on Purpose: The Improbable Adventures of an Unlikely Patriot

    In American on Purpose, Craig Ferguson delivers a moving and achingly funny memoir of living the American dream as he journeys from the mean streets of Glasgow, Scotland, to the comedic promised land of Hollywood. Along the way he stumbles through several attempts to make his mark - as a punk rock musician, a construction worker, a bouncer, and, tragically, a modern dancer.

    Diane says: "Unabashedly Honest"

    This was a great listen! Engaging, funny and heartfelt. Made me laugh, made me cry, made me appreciate my life as a born and bred American. Highly recommend it.

    New York Times best-selling author Linda Castillo delivers an electrifying thriller in which Chief of Police Kate Burkholder must confront a dark evil to solve the mysterious murders of an entire Amish family. The Plank family moved from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to join the small Amish community of Painters Mill less than a year ago and seemed the model of the Plain Life—until on a cold October night, the entire family of seven was found slaughtered on their farm.

    Would you try another book from Linda Castillo and/or Kathleen McInerney?

    Nope. I'm sorry I bought the 3rd one. I remember enjoying the 1st. But this one was sappy, painfully so. The narrator may have made it worse with her overly dramatic "heartfelt" this that and the other thing. Sorry -- just not for me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kathleen McInerney’s performances?

    I doubt it. Way too dramatic in a cloyingly sappy way. I returned another one she was reading after about 10 minutes because of the same thing. Granted -- some people may really like that style.

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    S. Sand says: "The perfect combination of author and narrator"

    I bought this on a special sale -- it was $4.95! And I'm SO glad I bought it!! I'm a littled bummed the second in the series is abridged...but no matter...I'm gonna go through the whole series. Will Patton is FANTASTIC and James Lee Burke is a master story teller!

    In which Daniel Waterhouse, fearless thinker and courageous Puritan, pursues knowledge in the company of the greatest minds of Baroque-era Europe -- in a chaotic world where reason wars with the bloody ambitions of the mighty, and where catastrophe, natural or otherwise, can alter the political landscape overnight.

    Overall

    I really loved this book...and the sequels...I'm up to the third one and I find them all big fun! It's going to be one of those series that I will be sad to have it finish. I look forward to my commute time so I can catch up on my listening. I guess I'm a bit of a girl-geek who loves history...maybe that's why I enjoyed it so much. It reminds me of the Ken Follet books about the middle-ages, which I enjoyed as well!

    Also learned a valuable lesson -- I shouldn't put too much stock in reviews, since this book got such bad ones and if I'd read those before I bought the book I might not have.

    In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    Brian says: "Fantastic for young audience, Good for adults"
    "A really fun listen!"
    Overall

    Richard Thomas did a fantastic job reading this book. It's a bit simplistic...but still very enjoyable summer reading!

    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Suzn F says: "Terrific Book"
    "Ed Hermann bombed on this one."
    Overall

    With all due respect to Mr. Hermann, he reads this book so sloooooooowly it's agonizing! I want desperately to keep listening, but I can only listen in short segments because it's maddening! He pauses between words, never mind sentences! Why oh why did he read this so SLOWLY? It's a good story, I just might trying speeding up my ipod to listen though.

  • Why We Suck

    In Why We Suck, Dr. Denis Leary uses his common sense, and his biting and hilarious take on the world, to attack the politically correct, the hypocritical, the obese, the thin - basically everyone who takes themselves too seriously. He does so with the extra oomph of a doctorate bestowed upon him by his alma mater Emerson College. "Sure it's just a celebrity type of thing - they only gave it to me because I'm famous." Leary explains.

    C. Byrnes says: "Laughed Out Loud Bunches"
    "Beware!"
    Overall

    I enjoy Dennis Leary, but I've learned, in small doses! I bought this book because I LOVED Steve Martin's autobiography "Born Standing Up" and thought it would be fun to listen to another celebrity read their book. Problem is that I'm a left-leaning woman, and "Dr." Leary's ranting just grated on my nerves. I know, I know, he says I need to grow a sense of humor, but I've heard it all before around the dining room table from my "holier-than-thou" (male) relatives! I could only listen for about 30 minutes and I had to turn it off. I'm thinking about deleting it...not sure I want to give it another try or not. So, beware, if you're a woman with liberal leanings, this might not be the book for you.
