    Ever since Eve asked Adam, "Do I look fat in this fig leaf?" it's been apparent that men don't know how to handle women. In The Mr. & Mrs. Happy Handbook, Steve Doocy attempts to give all men and women answers to the questions that arise in their relationships. (To the question above, the answer, clearly, is "No hablo ingles".) This is a funny, provocative, and yet hopeful look at husbands and wives.

    Steve says: "Good Times"
    "Charming"
    Overall

    This is a very charming book. I loved it!

    Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.

    I don't typically write reviews, but this book is incredible. Just when I thought I had figured everything out, my theories were shot to pieces. Could not stop listening!

    An extraordinary debut novel of love that survives the fires of hell and transcends the boundaries of time. The narrator of The Gargoyle is a very contemporary cynic, physically beautiful and sexually adept, who dwells in the moral vacuum that is modern life. As the book opens, he is driving along a dark road when he is distracted by what seems to be a flight of arrows.

    Rodney says: "The Gargoyle"
    "The best love story"
    Overall

    I too have never been so inpsired to write a review. This book is amazing. The prose is stunning. I would give it ten stars if that option existed.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "Beat book I ever read/heard!"
    Overall

    This is one of those books that MUST be discussed with a fellow reader. The prose is excellent and the narrator brings it alive. My husband and I both loved it, and spent too much time in the driveway to savor every last bit of the chapters before going into the house. A must read-must share book.
