  • Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?: A Rock 'n' Roll Memoir

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 1 min)

    Story
    (266)

    The son of a classical pianist straight out of the Bronx of old Archie comics, Steven Tyler was born to be a rock star. Weaned on Cole Porter, Nat King Cole, Mick and his beloved Janis Joplin, Tyler began tearing up the streets and the stage as a teenager before finally meeting his "mutant twin" and legendary partner, Joe Perry. In this addictively listenable memoir, Tyler unabashedly recounts the meteoric rise, fall, and rise of Aerosmith over the last three decades and riffs on the music that gives it all meaning.

    Damian says: "Reads true to the man and true to music"
    "That was a trip!"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you like Steven Tyler and/or Aerosmith, yes. Otherwise probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed some of his writing and phrasing but I couldn't help but think this must be a really odd and uncomfortable read for his family and his daughters in particular. If nothing else, I know that what you see is what you get with Steven. He is a quirky rocker through and through.

    Would you listen to Duma Key again? Why?

    Yes and I have. I loved the story and narration and being able to get lost in King's odd little world.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't loved a Stephen King book this much in a long time. I highly recommend it!

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    What made the experience of listening to Odd Thomas the most enjoyable?

    I loved David Aaron Baker as the voice of Odd! He was perfect for no specific reason I can put my finger on but when I think of Odd Thomas, I hear his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Odd is quirky and endearing and the narration of this book is spot on. Out of the series so far, this is still my favorite.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    What did you love best about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

    It is smart and engrossing and dark.

    I LOVED this series! It was intelligent and had scenes that made me uncomfortable but it kept me reading. I loved the attention to detail and thoroughness throughout the entire series. I could not stop listening and made sure to go out and buy the hardcovers of these, too. I listened to the whole series quickly and then listened to it all over again trying to find hints and clues or little details that were off but this series was finished so neatly that it is kind of amazing really. Brilliant series!

    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.

    What did you love best about The Hunger Games?

    I loved that the books were written for young adults but the author did not dumb down her story for kids.


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The passion in her performance came through.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this whole series and highly recommend them. Yes, there is some of the teenage "Who will she pick?" boy drama but it isn't played out in the typical way. There is a lot of substance to this book. These are destined to be classics.

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to love this book more but I think it fell short when I realized this was clearly Part 1. I know trilogies have become really popular but this is one book where I felt like it could have been pushed further into one massively good read rather than making us wait. Then again, I could be just impatient. I only gave the story 3 stars but this may change once we hear the full story.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    If you could sum up A Discovery of Witches in three words, what would they be?

    Smart, engrossing, unique.


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

    Yes! I have found myself sitting in the car listening a little longer than I should in my own driveway and my workouts at the gym have slowed down since I am listening to this rather than my high energy music mix!


    Any additional comments?

    Especially after Fifty Shades of terrible writing, this has been a delight to read! The lead characters are intelligent and even though they (predictably) fall in love, it doesn't mean they immediately fall into bed together. A Discovery of Witches has been an engrossing listen and I am excited to start Shadow of Night.
