    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    N. Belle says: "Great Book and Great Story"
    "Totally engaging and enjoyable"
    Overall

    I've been in LOVE with Rob Lowe since my adolescence, and this audiobook has only enhanced my crush (and I'm 41). The story is chronological, engaging, rich with detail, humor, and self-deprecation. Lowe is an excellent storyteller and shows himself to be intelligent and funny; I'd heard before reading this book that he is an incredible mimic, and his imitations of assorted celebrities and personalities are incredibly dead-on.

    I loved this book and didn't want it to end. I also really, really loved that it wasn't smarmy, negative, or rude towards anyone. I highly recommend this book, especially in audiobook format.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Riveting"
    Overall

    The plot and detail in this story make this novel completely riveting. There were moments where I was cognizant of it being a "young adult" book, but for the most part the descriptions, conflicts, and themes were engaging for adults as well. It's kind of like Lord of the Flies meets Survivor, and it is horrific in its implications about humans, politics, and sociology.

    Kim Edwards now gives us the story of a woman's homecoming, a family secret, and the old house that holds the key to the true legacy of a family. At a crossroads in her life, Lucy Jarrett returns home from Japan, only to find herself haunted by her father's unresolved death a decade ago. Old longings stirred up by Keegan Fall, a local glass artist who was once her passionate first love, lead her into the unexpected. Late one night, as she paces the hallways of her family's rambling lakeside house, she discovers, locked in a window seat, a collection of objects that first appear to be useless curiosities, but soon reveal a deeper and more complex family past.

    glamazon says: "Much Ado about...what?"
    "Tedious and slow"
    Overall

    Though I loved the first novel by this author, The Memory Keeper's Daughter, I am not enjoying this book at all. The book begins in Japan and moves quickly to the Finger Lakes region of NY, and the transition doesn't take place swiftly or clearly. The level of detail, dialogue, and detail is unnecessary; I find I'm lost because my mind wanders to alleviate the boredom. Too bad, because I hate to give up one of my monthly credits for a book that I've not enjoyed so thoroughly. I've decided life is too short to spend on books that are not enjoyable, so I'm giving myself permission to end my relationship with it now!
