    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story
    (5259)

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"

    Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards, and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen?

    What did you love best about iWoz?

    STEVE WAS A COMPLEX GEEK. HE SEEMED TO LOVE WHAT ELECTRONICS CAN DO AND ALMOST STUMBLED INTO GREAT SUCCESS. HE DIDN'T SEEM THE LEAST BIT MATERIALISTIC OR TOTALLY DRIVEN AS STEVE JOBS WAS. HE HAD NOTHING TO PROVE!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of iWoz?

    THE


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    HIS LOVE OF CHILDREN...MUST HAVE BEEN A GOOD FATHER? THE BOOK AS WRITTEN/READ HAD A REALLY CHOPPY SENTENCE STRUCTURE.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    EVERY APPLE HAS A STEM. IT'S THERE AND REALLY IMPORTANT, BUT NO ONE THINKS THAT MUCH ABOUT IT, NOR IS IT A PART THAT'S EATEN.


    Any additional comments?

    A REALLY GOOD LISTEN ABOUT ONE OF THE GREATEST SUCCESS STORIES OF ALL TIME.
