    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    I found the unabridged version to be excellent. This is one of few books I actually listened to more than once.

    The Thorpes were the perfect couple: young, attractive, and ideally matched. But the veil of perfection can mask many secrets. When the Thorpes are found dead in their tasteful Flagstaff living room, having committed double-suicide, alarms go off in the executive offices of Eden, Incorporated, the worldwide matchmaking phenomenon that uses its astonishing artificial intelligence to create supercouples and guarantee its customers just one thing: lifelong happiness.

    Overall

    I thought that the concept of the story was really good, but its execution was terrible. I constantly found myself annoyed at the author never choosing the obvious. All the characters were well defined and likable, but stupid. I'm all for stretching reality for a good story, but the main characters just ignore any logical conclusions over and over again. The ending was unbelivable and the epilogue - well, give me a break.

    Although the narrator has a smooth voice it seemed to me to be nearly monotone.

    Behind the gates of a fabulous Hampton estate, FBI Special Agent Pendergast discovers the carnage of a gruesome crime, a nightmare of seemingly supernatural origin. The smoldering remains of infamous art critic Jeremy Grove, a melted cross branding his chest, are found in a locked, barricaded attic. The hoofprint singed into the floorboards and the smell of brimstone recall the legendary horrors that befall those who make a pact with the Devil.

    "Just Ok"
    Overall

    Perhaps it is because I figured out the how almost immediately, this book just didn't keep my interest. This was my first Pendergast novel -- maybe I missed something, but in the end I just didn't care about the who or why.
