  • The Tender Bar: A Memoir

    Story
    (75)

    Torn between the stirring example of his mother and the lurid romance of the bar, J.R. tried to forge a self somewhere in the center. But when it was time for J.R. to leave home, the bar became an increasingly seductive sanctuary, a place to return and regroup during his picaresque journeys. Time and again, the bar offered shelter from failure, rejection, heartbreak, and eventually from reality.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Tender Bar to be better than the print version?

    Great Recommendation


    Which character – as performed by J.R. Moehringer – was your favorite?

    Uncle Eddie


    Any additional comments?

    This book was recommended to me by and friend and Im glad he did. A very well written and narrated book that was simple but compelling. I was really bummed when it was over. What was really interesting was all of the people that came into JR's life that seemed to pave the way to his path to becoming a terrific writer.

    After reading an article about a local farmer who had dedicated his life to growing giant pump­kins, Michalowicz realized the same process could apply to growing a business. He tested the Pumpkin Plan on his own company and transformed it into a remarkable, multimillion-dollar industry leader. First he did it for himself. Then for others. And now you.

    What made the experience of listening to The Pumpkin Plan the most enjoyable?

    Being able to relate to Mikes examples


    Any additional comments?

    At first I though Mike was a little goofy and doubted his credibility but the book quickly became one of my favorite books on business and Im a true follower of Mikes word now. I've read a lot of books on business but so many I come away from feeling like I learned nothing.

    I liked this book so much I purchased the paperback version to re-read and share with a friend. Im looking forward to Mikes 3rd book that will hopefully be out soon and reading his first one now.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    If you could sum up 14 in three words, what would they be?

    Great original concept


    Any additional comments?

    It's a shame that more original books like this are not made into movies. Instead we get the same old plot lines and sequels to films where there are great stories like this that would make for a much better film.

    14 was a great book was an original plot with some great twists and turns. Im definitely looking forward to checking out other books by Peter Clines.
