Philip Roth is one of my favorite writers but I guess you can't win them all.
I found Sabbath to be a boorish, unredemtive and ultimately an uninteresting character. I think that perhaps Philip was in a sexual slump in his life and took out his frustrations on poor Mickey. Perhaps Sabbath's mother's suggestions of an early termination should have been given more consideration early on.
Can't recommend this one.
Really enjoyed the fun story mostly because of Holter Grahams delivery. My objection was that the book read like a screen play with over 300 chapter markers including scene setups. Seems a bit lazy on Winslow's part as if he didn't want to do a rewrite for the movie.
Many of the examples given by Carnegie are taken from early last century and even much earlier in time but the principles have proven to improve ones quality of life as well as prepare one for a higher quantity of success in the world of business.
Good to return for a refresher course now and then just to remember how important a smile can be.
I keep looking for a way to think my way into a higher consciousness. I love the basic premise of Buddhist thought but stilling the mind through meditation still just escapes me.
Decent enough book, just not for me.
Took a chance on the selection. However I couldn't complete the book. Not the least bit compelling. Oh well, win some, lose some.
I really enjoy all of Wambaugh's novels following the cast of characters from Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police department. They are wacky, fun loving sometimes poignant but always effective keepers of the peace. You can't go wrong with this selection if you like a little humor with your drama.
The book is a fun read if you don't mind the over the top profanity. Interesting idea to have a former mafia/russian mob hitman enter witness protection and become a physician. Enjoyed some of the information imparted from the good doctor but IMHO this is not worth your credit.
Simple escapism with an antihero. Can't recommend it unless your into that mind set at the moment. This is the second book I downloaded by Bazell so I was in the mood...I'm out of it now:)
As long as you're not looking for anything of depth this is a gentle way to spend an afternoon listening to the musings of 2 men trying to make sense of their lifes. I enjoyed it but was somewhat disappointed in its lack of substance.
You can't miss with Kellermans duo. Always well written dialoge and a fun romp.
Not much to say here. This book is aimed at the testosterone driven adolescent reader. I'm quite sure I would have enjoyed it 40 years ago. Not recommended for anyone over the age of 18.
