    Geiger has a gift: he knows a lie the instant he hears it. And in his business - called "information retrieval" by its practitioners - that gift is invaluable, because truth is the hottest thing on the market. Geiger's clients count on him to extract the truth from even the most reluctant subjects. Unlike most of his competitors, Geiger rarely sheds blood, but he does use a variety of techniques - some physical, many psychological - to push his subjects to a point where pain takes a backseat to fear. Because only then will they finally stop lying.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Solid debut with a curious and sophisticated take on the traditional chase thriller. Most likeable torturer in history for sure, and a protagonist I would like to learn more about in future books. The storyline was perhaps a bit too single-tracked, but I was entertained the whole way.

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    Loved every part of this book. From the complex story lines of multiple characters to the action and violence fueled parts. The narration was great too.
    Highly recommended.

    Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door, memorable travel literature threatens to break out. His previous excursion on the Appalachian Trail resulted in the best seller A Walk in the Woods. Now, we follow him "Down Under" to Australia with this delectably funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance that combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity. More from Bill Bryson.

    Story

    Bill Bryson takes you off to a land far far away. And you can easily imagine what it's like there. Love the humor and all the stories and historical facts. Love that Bill Bryson narrated it, couldn't imagine anyone else doing it.
    On a few occasions, it did feel like a chore to keep going, but I'm very happy I did.

    Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, The Devil All the Time follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of World War II to the 1960s. There’s Willard Russell, tormented veteran of the carnage in the South Pacific, who can’t save his beautiful wife, Charlotte, from an agonizing death by cancer no matter how much sacrifi­cial blood he pours on his “prayer log.”

    Where does The Devil All the Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pollock explores the dark side of humanity. And he does it well. So matter of fact it hurts. I truly enjoyed this book.

    Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's controversial and blazingly original debut novel, introduced a fresh and even renegade talent to American fiction, one who has retooled the classic black humor of Terry Southern and Kurt Vonnegut for the lunacy of the millennial age. In this novel, Choke, he gives listeners a vision of life and love and sex and mortality that is both chillingly brilliant and teeth-rattlingly funny.

    Pamela says: "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"
    "Just average - Interview at the end saves it"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I know, I know. Palahniuk is a great writer and certainly explore some interesting elements of humanity. But I have to admit, it was a bit tedious to get through Choke. Palahniuk's monotone narration, which admittedly set the tone right, made it difficult for me to truly enjoy. The story was interesting but didn't captivate me.
    Interestingly, the reason I give it four stars overall is because of the interview with Palahniuk at the end of book. Here, he explains why he wrote the book. His insights gave me validation and added to the overall experience, so I didn't feel I wasted my time.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....
