    In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    I never write reviews or complain about books, but this one is just that bad. The plot is “want to be” cute with the most sleepy story lines. The pages pass by with absolutely nothing happening and nothing entertaining at all. The fact this was published is mind boggling. Simply put, I want my money back.

    Sister Evangeline was just a girl when her father entrusted her to the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. Now, at 23, her discovery of a 1943 letter from the famous philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent plunges Evangeline into a secret history that stretches back a thousand years: an ancient conflict between the Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful descendants of angels and humans.

    Overall

    The writing is a bit childish, it starts better as the book moves along but every thing else gets worse. The book is filled with odd humans and crazy angels, both move through the storyline constantly acting stranger and stranger. Gaps in logic and common sense are so large that you can’t suspend your belief and enjoy the book . Plus the author adds lots of pointless descriptions that take the novel nowhere, and many of them are unnecessary violent . There is no way I will be finishing this .

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    the plot and other aspects were ok. but only for kids. if you like real fantasy don't bother. this was one of the few books i put down and never intend to finish.

    Richard Mayhew is an unassuming young businessman living in London, with a dull job and a pretty but shrewish fiancée. Then one night he stumbles upon a girl lying on the sidewalk, bleeding. He stops to help her, and his life is changed forever. Soon he finds himself living in a London most people would never have dreamed of: a city of monsters and saints, murderers and angels. It is a world that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth of sewer canals and abandoned subway stations.

    Overall

    average and trying too hard, thats the best i say for this book. though it has a interesting plot it was badly executed and is somewhat predictable. combined with cheesy sound effects that make it hard to under stand important details it just not worth the time. aside form this all if can say is that it is ok and reader can finish the book.

    Intended to create life from nothingness, the Genesis Wave had the potential to become a weapon of awe-inspiring destructiveness, capable of rearranging matter and life energy on a planetary scale. After cataclysmic close calls, Starfleet wisely decided to destroy all data and records on Project Genesis, hoping to bury its deadly secrets forever...but now it is back with a vengeance...Read by Tim Russ, Tuvok on Voyager!

    Overall

    This book was the worst audio program I have listen to. The story was killed by many cheesy sound effects witch not only cluttered the book, trying to add to the beleaguered content, but killed what ever story line there was. If you like Sci-Fi and Start Trek don't bother with this try some thing like Enders Game if you have not read it.

    If I could I would give this negative 5 stars.
