  • Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll

    Two sisters. Two voices. One Heart.

    The mystery of "Magic Man." The wicked riff of "Barracuda." The sadness and beauty of "Alone." The raw energy of "Crazy On You." These songs, and so many more, are part of the fabric of American music. Heart, fronted by Ann and Nancy Wilson, has given fans everywhere classic, raw, and pure badass rock and roll for more than three decades. As the only sisters in rock who write their own music and play their own instruments, Ann and Nancy have always stood apart - certainly from their male counterparts but also from their female peers.

    What did you love best about Kicking and Dreaming?

    Even though each sister or contributor, was introduced when it was their time to speak, it didn't bother me. This is a TOTAL history of Rock N Roll from the early 70's to now....what a treat! I could just imagine how each of them felt when they met their idols! They connected with everyone in the music biz and it is amazing! I love how they get personal and tell their side of their lives, whether they were together or not....great family insight to their personal and VERY personal relationships. I have never been a BIG fan, but always loved their originals, like Barracuda, and always enjoyed their music. When they did All I Want To Do, I didn't like that era...and they felt it too....if you grew up with good and great rock in the 70's until early 2000's, then this is for you. Even if you hardly know or listened to them, for these ladies to lay it out there verbally, took ALOT of balls! You won't be disappointed!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    BOTH!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    ALL!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!

    In Wishful Drinking, Carrie Fisher tells the true and intoxicating story of her life with inimitable wit. Born to celebrity parents, she was picked to play a princess in a little movie called Star Wars when only 19 years old. "But it isn't all sweetness and light sabers."

    Nick says: "An entertaining, yet unfortunate story."

    She really made me laugh in a couple of parts, but you have to really listen to this. Star Wars fan or not, you will appreciate it if you grew up with all the rage of the movie. This is a book I would re-listen to just for fun!

    Told with the same intimate style, brutal honesty, and uproarious wisdom that placed Wishful Drinking on the New York Times bestseller list for months, Shockaholic is the juicy account of Carrie Fisher’s life, focusing more on the Star Wars years and dishing about the various Hollywood relationships she’s formed since she was chosen to play Princess Leia at only 19 years old.

    Story

    This is a great book! She was open and candid about her, her mother, her father and all that she has gone through with depression. You can tell in some segments that she is a bit tired, then others she is more upbeat in her vocal tone. All in all, it was such a fantastic book that I "liked" her Facebook page and invited her to lunch in July when I go back to California. Whether she takes the invite or not, who knows, but she is the type of personality that I could really connect with. My favorite part is the last, when she speaks of the time she finally had with her father, Eddie Fisher.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty about is life, feelings and revelations in his life.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of it....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, when he said he still loves Maria....


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book! He laid it all out there! The narrator is slow, so I sped it up and it was a lot better. If you have that option, do it. Other than that, Arnold speaks during the first and last part of the book.

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    What made the experience of listening to The Winds of War the most enjoyable?

    For me it went on too long and too detailed....it was hard to grasp the story line....maybe it was me.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is VERY long and detailed. If you like historical fiction, then this is for you. I love history, but I want REAL history and this was just too much for me, because it was about a fictional family.

  • American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    What did you love best about American Conspiracies?

    Very informative and disturbing at the same time


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    How much our government hides and lies to us


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator, George K. Wilson, is good, but he drags it on so slowly. It is just the way he reads. I found a setting feature on my sansa clip where I can speed up the vocal speed. That REALLY helped! Put it this way, he is slow enough that when you speed it up, he hardly sounds like a chipmunk.


    If you could give American Conspiracies a new subtitle, what would it be?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    Great info, glad I can speed up narrator, and scary at the same time. Makes me wonder where this country, or this world for that matter, will be after I am gone from this world. It sounds scary!
