  • Pure Drivel

    In this ingeniously funny collection of humorous riffs, those who thought Martin's gifts were confined to the screen will discover what readers of the New Yorker already know: that Martin is also a master of the written word. Hilariously funny and intelligent in their skewering of the topic at hand, these pieces feature Martin at his finest.

    Overall

    The title fits this book very well. Half of it did not make sense. I did not make it through the entire book.

    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 made the experience of listening to The Hunger Games the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator is AMAZING. I loved this book. I've already listened to the series twice!


    What other book might you compare The Hunger Games to and why?

    I haven't found a comparison. Each book in the series was stand alone good. I've never had a series captivate me like this one did.


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

    No - this was my first. I will definately look up her others.


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

    YES - I listened to the entire series within a week!


    Any additional comments?

    LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!

    Between avoiding the FBI and their moronic profiling computer, joining a dating service, mixing it up with street thugs, and parrying the advances of an uncouth PI, Lieutenant Jacqueline Daniels and her binge-eating partner Herb must catch a frightening maniac who calls himself "The Gingerbread Man" before he kills again...and Jack is next on his murder list.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Whiskey Sour to be better than the print version?

    I think I'd prefer the print version. The accents for the main characters, Jack and Herb, were a little distracting. Once I got used to it, it was a godd storyline and I really liked Jack's character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character, Jack.


    Which character – as performed by Susie Breck and Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Jack


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

    No - I broke this one up.


    Any additional comments?

    If this was made into a TV show or movie - Maria Bello would be PERFECT for Jack!

    Morganville, Texas, is a small college town filled with quirky characters. But when the sun goes down, the bad come out. Because in Morganville, there is an evil that lurks in the darkest shadows---one that will spill out into the bright light of day.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator's voice was trying. I decided to buy the paperback and read this one to avoid the annoyance of the narrator's voice.


    If you’ve listened to books by Rachel Caine before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first one.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Get a narrator that has less of a valley girl sound to it. Claire Danvers is not a valley girl so why would the voice of the book sound that way. Horrible match.


    Could you see Glass Houses being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes

    In her ninth adventure, Sookie has just tied on her cocktail waitress apron for a night's work when a special report comes on the television. The time has come. The wereanimals have revealed themselves.

    Anne Hoag says: "High expectations not met"
    "Okie Dokie"
    Overall

    These books are very addicitve. Although I'd say Harris' writing has a very subjective audience, some parts are down right ridiculous. But, if you're looking for a storyline that does not take much thought to follow and need a few unintended laughs, these are the books for you. They are so bad, they are good.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Very Funny"
    Overall

    This book is very amusing. We listened to this on our 14 hour drive to Chicago and it kept our attention. Fisher Stevens narrates this book so well, you'd think he was the actual characters. I have already listened to this title twice now. Well worth the money spent.

    After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show with Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy.

    Nikki says: "Hilarious but a little preachy"
    "Entertaining To a Point"
    Overall

    This audiobook has it's funny parts, but I wouldn't listen to this multiple times. David Cross is a very funny comedian. In this audiobook, he goes out of his way to make your listening experience odd by repeatedly going off script, scolding the listener for buying the audiobook instead of the "real" book and summerizing chapters instead of reading it. To start, the preface is read twice, once by Johnathan Benjamin and then a second time by Cross himself. There is a chapter Cross made a list for movie directors of odd movie plots to ensure a award winning film, but he had a band sing this entire list, rather than reading it (the band sucks, btw). This book would be a better read while visiting your bathroom vs. anything else. The parts that are funny are very funny, but the rest is just annoying.
