  • Go Down Together: The True, Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde

    With dramatic flair, Jeff Guinn delivers the definitive portrait of Bonnie and Clyde. These media-savvy outlaws appealed to America's Depression-era hunger for swashbuckling characters. Glowing radio and newspaper reports transformed these "public enemies" into celebrities - much like the cinema gangsters of the time.

    Tim says: "Bravo!"
    "Riveting story"
    Overall

    Enjoyed all the details. The story was different than I thought, who knew criminals would be so family oriented.

    This gripping story of courage, achievement, and heartbreaking loss tells of Bonington's Boys, a band of climbers who reinvented mountaineering during the three decades after Everest's first ascent. Chris Bonington's inner circle included a dozen of the most renowned climbers, who took increasingly terrible risks on now legendary expeditions to the world's most fearsome peaks, and paid an enormous price. Most of them died in the mountains, leaving behind the hardest question of all: was it worth it?

    Suzanne says: "Beautifully read by James Adams"
    "Dull"
    Overall

    The narrator does not add to an already dry story. I love mountain stories but found this to be too full of details, dull and anticlimatic. I got through 3/4 of the book and wished I would have given up earlier.

    This is Diablo's captivating fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, from quiet gentlemen's clubs to multilevel sex palaces and glassed-in peep shows. In witty prose she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer's keen eye, chronicling her descent into the skin trade and the effect it had on her self-image and her relationship with her now husband.

    Suzn F says: "Prefer a 3.5 if I could"
    "Not for everyone"
    Overall

    The story of a smart girl who is drawn into exotic dancing and her return to life away from it. Self discovery and comic relief make the story interesting.

    Stewing in an Australian prison, Jasper Dean reflects on his relationship with his dead father and recounts the many zany adventures they shared together.

    Nancy says: "Beautifully written, wonderful characters"
    "Incredible story"
    Overall

    I didn't want it to end. The characters were frustrating and endearing. You wanted to follow them through all the craziness.

    Law professor Natalie Greco has an ordered life. Then, one terrible day, everything changes. While visiting a prison, a riot erupts and a prison guard is fatally injured. Nat rushes to help him, only to hear his last words: "Tell my wife. It's under the floor. The money." Nat feels she must find his widow. But this is no simple quest, and along the way, Nat is framed for murder and the retiring scholar finds herself in a desperate fight to save her own life.

    Jim says: "jimbo2all"
    "Not bad for a who dunnit"
    Overall

    The plot was simple, story moves at an okay pace. The narator does a great job with the voices, but the story is not engaging enough to hold your interest tightly.
