    Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts by reflexor design. He fears no one...until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is a shapeshifter who can absorb bullets and heal with a kiss and savage anyone who threatens her. Together they weave a pattern of destiny unimaginable to mortals.

    Overall

    Passionate, surprising and very moving. I am not a science fiction lover and might not have listened to this book had it not been recommended. I found myself moved to tears more than once. It is a very outstanding audiobook. Definitely worth a listen.

  • The Denzel Principle: Why Black Women Can’t Find Good Black Men

    The Denzel Principle, also called "The Dizzle," according to journalist and author Jimi Izrael, is the belief that the perfect man, who is the epitome of all things women think Denzel Washington represents, exists off screen and not only can you get one for your very own, you also need not settle for less. The regular good man need not apply.

    This is an amazingly entertaining and surprising listen. That is, if you approach it properly. If you are in a serious frame of mind and looking for the answers to the deep questions life may bring up, you should maybe pass. If, on the other hand, you are open, and willing to let surprising pearls of wisdom drop into your lap while laughing yourself silly and learning a little about life, the world, men, women and relationships, I strongly recommend this book. The narration is flawless!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed during and long after I was through listening. More memoir and personal opinion than self help. More funny and ironic than serious. But there are some very touching and moving moments also. Delightful. Totally delightful, and again, superbly and perfectly narrated! Bravo!

    Spero Lucas has a new line of work. Since he returned home after serving in Iraq, he has been doing special investigations for a defense attorney. He's good at it, and he has carved out a niche: recovering stolen property, no questions asked. His cut is 40 percent. But is any cut worth your family, your lover, your life?

    Story

    A good old popcorn kinda story but with a new age kinda sensibility. We have a complex and unusual lead character to follow here. And, with crime fiction, I think if you can say you were in suspense, but intrigued, and entertained all at once, the novel is a success. I can say that here. And it is.The narrator, is perfectly suited to the material. He takes us on this journey and subtly navigates along with us through the plot twists and turns. Really great work! Really enjoyable! Highly recommended!!!

    Acclaimed novelist Cotton Smith is a Western legend. Here, he continues the masterfully drawn saga of a prosperous white man closely guarding the truth of his tragic past as an Oglala Sioux.

    Overall

    A fascinating ride through history. Here we get a complex exploration of what spirit is and what it is to be moved by it. The narrator is perfectly suited for the material. He graciously draws us into and relays to us the story and time and rich character of Vin Lockhart. I am not usually a lover of Westerns, and this one made me wonder why. I highly reccommend it.

    In his first novel, Dave Eggers has written a moving and hilarious tale of two friends who fly around the world trying to give away a lot of money and free themselves from a profound loss. It reminds us once again what an important, necessary talent Dave Eggers is.

    Overall

    Really touching and laugh out loud at the same time. Eggers strikes a wonderful balance between serious and seriously funny here. The superb narrator never gets in the way of this journey, his subtle but well defined details of anxiety and sadness while looking at the world at large brings everything into perspective. Highly recommended! Especially if you need a laugh.

    The Wild Things is about the confusions of a boy, Max, making his way in a world he can't control. His father is gone, his mother is spending time with a younger boyfriend, and his sister is becoming a teenager. At the same time, he finds himself capable of startling acts of wildness: he wears a wolf suit and he bites his mom. During a fight at home, Max flees and runs away into the woods.

    Dave Eggers scored a worldwide phenomenon with this memoir that topped national best-seller lists and has since become a staple for summer reading and book clubs. A compelling voice for Generation X, Eggers hererecounts his early 20s, caring for his younger brother after their parents’ unexpected deaths and his endeavors in a variety of media.
