    President of the United States Donald Vanderdamp is having a hell of a time getting his nominees appointed to the Supreme Court. After one nominee is rejected for insufficiently appreciating To Kill A Mockingbird, the president chooses someone so beloved by voters that the Senate won't have the guts to reject her.

    Jim says: "Comic Relief"
    "Hilarious as usual"
    Overall

    Christopher Buckley is a terrific satirist. Again, this book is hilariously entertaining.

  • On the Brink: Inside the Race to Stop the Collapse of the Global Financial System

    Story
    (73)

    From the man who was in the very middle of this perfect economic storm, On the Brink is Paulson's fast-paced retelling of the key decisions that had to be made with lightning speed. Paulson puts the listener in the room for all the intense moments as he addressed urgent market conditions, weighed critical decisions, and debated policy and economic considerations with of all the notable players.

    Michael Moore says: "More Depth than "Too Big to Fail""
    "Solidly written viewpoint of US Treasury"
    Overall

    Will-written, a great counterpoint to Sorkin's To Big To Fail.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Christopher Moore
    • Narrated By Fisher Stevens
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready
    Overall
    (2704)

    Story
    (1277)

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "OK, a bit sophomoric"
    Overall

    I was disappointed, but probably mostly because of high expectations and the rave reviews from my friend. I enjoyed others of Moore's novels, but this one struck me as kinda silly. But my taste runs to more biting satire, this is kind of mild. Try it. Good recording.
