    Story
    (83)

    Eddie Huang is the 30-year-old proprietor of Baohaus - the hot East Village hangout where foodies, stoners, and students come to stuff their faces with delicious Taiwanese street food late into the night - and one of the food world’s brightest and most controversial young stars. But before he created the perfect home for himself in a small patch of downtown New York, Eddie wandered the American wilderness looking for a place to call his own. Funny, raw, and moving, and told in an irrepressibly alive and original voice, Fresh Off the Boat recasts the immigrant’s story for the 21st century.

    Andy says: "authentic"
    "Too much Gutter languare for me!!!!!"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't have good taste in speaking


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eddie Huang? Why or why not?

    Not if written by an educated person who constantly speaks using gutter language


    What didn’t you like about Eddie Huang’s performance?

    Possibly could have been a good book


    What character would you cut from Fresh Off the Boat?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Could not finish, as I could not tolerate the gutter language any more. Would recommend the book be re-written

  • Prophet's Prey: My Seven-Year Investigation into Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Latter-Day Saints

    Story
    (213)

    Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice.

    Steve says: "Incredible Story of the FLDS"
    "Very informative and easy to listen to."

    Would you listen to Prophet's Prey again? Why?

    Probably, just to get the history straight


    What other book might you compare Prophet's Prey to and why?

    Not aware of any!


    What does Jonah Cummings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good reader, but mispronounced many nouns


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Well done!
