    Meet "Carrie", the quintessential young writer looking for love in all the wrong places; "Mr. Big", the business tycoon who drifts from one relationship to another; "Samantha Jones", the 40-ish, successful, "testosterone woman" who uses sex like a man; not to mention "Psycho Moms", "Bicycle Boys", "International Crazy Girls", and the rest of the New Yorkers who inspired one of the most watched TV series of our time. You've seen them on HBO, now listen to the book that started it all.

    Overall

    i enjoyed this book and while i didn't think it was for everyone, i thought it was an intelligent look at how the women portrayed in this book were actually representatives of myself and other women i know.

    A brutal struggle in the cutthroat computer industry...a shattering psychological game of cat and mouse...a shocking accusation that threatens to derail a brilliant career...Michael Crichton is at his galvanizing best.

    Would you listen to Disclosure again? Why?

    Yes. It was a well-crafted story with believable characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Meredith Johnson. She was the picture of a woman who felt entitled to take whatever action she felt necessary to achieve her goals.


    What about John Lithgow’s performance did you like?

    Everything! He has a talent for voices which makes him an excellent choice for storytelling!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can't point to any particular part of the story because there were so many aspects of the story that leapt at me during the entire performance!


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this story to anyone who was interested in michael crichton books!

    Enter the world of the Pendleton: The original owner became a recluse - and was rumored to be more than half mad - after his wife and two children were kidnapped in 1896 and never found. The second owner suffered a worse tragedy in 1935, when his house manager murdered him, his family, and the entire live-in staff.... Craftsmen and laborers working on renovations disappear or go mad.... For years, the Pendleton is a happy place, until a bad turn comes again.... Voices in unknown languages are heard in deserted rooms....

    Carol says: "Disappointing, a total let-down."

    If you could sum up 77 Shadow Street in three words, what would they be?

    what the heck?


    Would you be willing to try another book from Dean Koontz? Why or why not?

    yes. i have enjoyed his books in the past, particularly the frankenstein series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the scenes which depicted people conversing OUTside the building. i found the goings on INside the building too confusing!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    not really.


    Any additional comments?

    i have read books in this genre before and i have to say i am not really impressed. i prefer an author to be more plain spoken and not use symbolism and smoke and mirrors to illustrate their point.

    America is in serious trouble, and our days as a superpower are numbered, argues businessman and entrepreneur Donald J. Trump in his blockbuster new book. With his trademark candor and charisma, Trump reveals his hardline, commonsense solutions to the problems plaguing us today and shows how we can put our country back on the path to greatness. Nobody is better at achieving spectacular success than Donald Trump. Here, Trump shows how America can do the same.

    What made the experience of listening to Time to Get Tough the most enjoyable?

    how powerfully the narrator spoke during the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    after the book was finished my ears were ringing! lol! donald trump obviously has some strong opinions about our president and how our president handles certain issues.


    Any additional comments?

    i say, if donald trump thinks he has all the right answers to all our questions i think he should quit jerking us around and just run for the presidency! put his money where his mouth is and just run! honestly!

  • The Guinea Pig Diaries: My Life as an Experiment

    A collection of A.J. Jacobs' most hilarious and thought-provoking experiments yet. In his role as human guinea pig, Jacobs fearlessly takes on a series of life-altering challenges that provides readers with equal parts insight and humor. (And which drives A.J.'s patient wife, Julie, to the brink of insanity.)

    David says: "Laugh out loud"

    Overall

    I enjoyed the book so much I had to buy the audiobook. Now I can hear it while I do other things. I greatly recommend this book to other people.
