    What about Robin Sachs’s performance did you like?

    Very good narration.


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

    Yes, but impossible to do unless you're an insomniac.


    Any additional comments?

    If they had taught history in this way in school, I would have been an A student.

    Would you listen to When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? again? Why?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    George, of course.


    Have you listened to any of George Carlin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. It's as entertaining and thought provoking as all of his work is.


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

    Several.

    Rather - who has won every prestigious journalism award in his distinguished career - discusses all the big stories from his decades of reporting. This very personal accounting includes (but is certainly not limited to) his dismissal from CBS, the Abu Ghraib story, the George W. Bush Air National Guard controversy, his coverage of the JFK assassination, the origin of "Hurricane Dan", as well as inside stories about all the top personalities Dan has either interviewed or worked with over his remarkable career.

    J. James-Long says: "Excellent first-hand exploration of media today"
    "A must read."

    Story
    (1868)

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    Matthew says: "Darn funny if you're open to the idea."
    "A good read, but not for the squeamish"

    Any additional comments?

    Opened a whole new view on death. Somehow, as macabre as the topic is, very humorous with some laugh-out-loud moments!

  • Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

    Story
    (4962)

    While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

    Haden says: "My friends thought I was crazy."
    "Almost a comedy."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Could have skipped this one. Way too far fetched.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending.


    Could you see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No, but it was. Will probably be considered campy some day.

    "Young people starting out in television sometimes say to me: 'I want to be you.' My stock reply is always: 'Then you have to take the whole package.'" And now, at last, the most important woman in the history of television journalism gives us that "whole package", in her inspiring and riveting memoir. After more than 40 years of interviewing celebrities of all kinds, Barbara Walters has turned her gift for examination onto herself to reveal the forces that shaped her extraordinary life.

    Shaddi says: "Absolutely Incredible Listen!"
    "Good read"
