    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Andrew says: "Fantastic"
    "fabulous"

    The is a funny and touching memoir. Steve Martin fans will love this.

    Elinor Mackey has always done the right things in the right order: college, law school, career, marriage. But now everything's going wrong. After two painful years of trying, Elinor has learned that she can't have children. All the doctors can tell her is that it's probably because of her age. As she turns 40, she withdraws into an interior world of heartbreak.

    I liked Lolly Winston's first book, but this is whiny sing-songy drivel like so many other chic lit books. The narration is terrible.

  • I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This!: and Other Things That Strike Me as Funny

    That stammer. Those basset-hound eyes. That bone-dry wit. There has never been another comedian like Bob Newhart. In this, his first audiobook ever, Newhart gives his brilliant and bemused twist on a multitude of topics, including flying, the trials of a family holiday in a Winnebago, and more serious subjects, such as golf. And, of course, there are side-splittingly funny stories from his life and career. Who else has a drinking game named after him? ("Hi, Bob!")

    Kerry says: "I love Bob!"
    "lol funny"
    Overall

    The is a great book and Bob Newhart's narration is right on.

    Instantly recognizable, Auguste Renoir's masterpiece depicts a gathering of his real friends enjoying a summer Sunday on a café terrace along the Seine near Paris. A wealthy painter, an art collector, an Italian journalist, a war hero, a celebrated actress, and Renoir's future wife, among others, share this moment of la vie moderne, a time when social constraints were loosening and Paris was healing after the Franco-Prussian War.

    Keith says: "Well Worth the Time"
    "bad narration"
    Overall

    The story is OK but the narrator drove me to distraction. The fake french accent was appalling.

    Running with Scissors is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of being Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain.

    Overall

    This is the most perverted and unfunny book I have ever read or listened to. It disgusted me to the point of nausea.
