I was disappointed how he believes he and the gay community is the only one doing anything. I admire his work and devotion for the cure of AIDS but this was more of an informercial than an what his life has been since Ryan White.He hits on his life for a short period before putting emphasis on the Elton John AIDS Foundation (got tired of hearing the EJAF) and his quick criticism for everyone's short comings.
I would have enjoyed it a little more if it was more about him personally. Several things have happened in his life but was overwhelmed with organizations and what they were doing.
None in particular.
Elton John once said we have to build bridges instead of tearing them down. He left me the impression that if I were straight, Catholic, Republican, or American, then I was to blame for the outbreak of Global AIDS. While we help prevent the spread from needle programs and the use of contraceptives, it seems that teaching abstinence and personal responsibility gets lost in the mix (which abstinence is the BEST way to prevent it including addictions and other STDs). As I long for the end of AIDS, we need to stop the blame game and (as Elton said) start taking our part.
Would not recommend. I don't think I need all the profanity to understand his life. I would suggest if someone would like to know Nick Offerman without the expletives, watch "Parks and Recreation".
Nick has been able to mold his character and his life basically into one over time.
As I enjoyed the giggles while he read some of his more favorite times, his autobiography would have meant more if he had respect for the listener.
This has been one of the lesser autos I have read. If one wants more of "Ron Swanson" than what you are getting from television, this would be the more adult version.
The Great Transistion
Knowing, in just a chapter, of a President that has dealt with loss of love ones with consideration of his own life.
Paul brought a third person view.
Nothing comes to mind.
Intrigued enough to buy the hardcover.
Yes. Having the author reading helped with her feelings concerning certain areas.
Nothing I have read or done on audiobook can compare to this.
SNL sketches. If you are talking about doing audiobooks, no.
Nothing comes to mind.
One disappointment was the sound a little. Sound like she was in a box on some areas. Other than that, neat story of your average girl making it to the big time.
One of my favorite Stephen King books of all time!!!
The heartfelt despair as he did not save the Dunnings in time!
Very impressive trying to do several voices from different areas of the United States and Russia.
Made me want to go back and look at the severity of JFK, Lee Harvey Oswald, and others.
Very enjoyable Stephen King book. I would recommend to others.
