    From the uproarious account of her time at the Daily Show, where she developed an entirely one-sided infatuation with Jon Stewart, to the time she read her boyfriend's diary with disastrous results, Lauren's work is filled with the wit, honesty, and personality that make for great personal writing.

    LJ Web says: "Funny, funny, funny!"
    "First literal "Laugh Out Loud" title from Audible"
    Overall

    Listen to the sample and if you aren't hooked then get to a doctor immediately. You may have experienced traumatic brain injury impairing your sense of humor. Seriously though, I content Lauren Weedman is even funnier than David Sedaris and David Rakoff, two other writers you simply must sample, and both of whom are available here as well.

    "The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup."

    Ron says: "WOW!!!"
    "Delightful"
    Overall

    I found the novel to be both very silly, and very fun. The reader makes the book worthwhile, transforming the San Francisco Goth teen vernacular, which I feared would be grating and annoying, into a cadence that had me giggling at points. Read as an easy summer beach novel, I found it completely satisfying.

  • How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter

    From the author of The New York Times best sellers Treason and Slander comes an updated Ann Coulter compendium, complete with reader responses and television and talk radio transcripts (Couric, Donahue, Franken). With titles like "Would Mohamed Atta Object to Armed Pilots?", "9 out of 10 Caribou Support Drilling", and "Liberal Pimps for Clintonism", How to Talk to a Liberal covers Coulter's waterfront on her favorite issues and targets, from national security to Hollywood.

    Mike says: "funny...but...."
    "Spend your time and money elsewhere"
    Overall

    Ann Coulter is one of those media pundits who thrive on the "us vs. them" mentality - you are either a conservative or a liberal and if you are the latter, then you are a miserable, loathsome moral degenerate. That is nothing new since most commentators fall into one of the two categories, but what sets Coulter apart is her vicious and unapologetic nature. Her latest book is merely a collection of her columns written during the last five years. Some of them were so outrageous that they were refused publication by USA Today, National Review, etc. Coulter's condescending smugness and sometimes humorous (but desperate) one-liners grow tiresome *very* quickly. Only hard core conservatives who revel in vitriolic idealogical self affirmation will truly enjoy this book; if conservative talk radio makes you warm and fuzzy inside, plunk down your coin here. If, however, you're tired of body-slamming right-wing vapid babble like this, check out a genuinely thoughtful, articulate and smart convervative writer like George F. Will.
