    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    What would have made Revenge Wears Prada better?

    A bonfire!


    Has Revenge Wears Prada turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Megan Hilty?

    Narration was fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Revenge Wears Prada?

    Don't bother to put pen to paper with contrived, boring drivel.


    Any additional comments?

    Hated this book. I wish I could get my credit back.

    Martin Short takes you on a rich, hilarious, and occasionally heartbreaking ride through his life and times, from his early years in Toronto as a member of the fabled improvisational troupe Second City to the all-American comic big time of Saturday Night Live and memorable roles in movies such as ¡Three Amigos! and Father of the Bride.

    Love Life serves up another delicious selection of intimate stories and observations from Rob Lowe's life, told with humor, warmth, and brutal honesty. After writing his acclaimed debut effort, Lowe felt he had more stories to share and many more friends to introduce. The result is a touching memoir about the business and craft of acting, the pitfalls of success, family, love, and much more.

    Rob did a nice job with the narration. The story seemed contrived and he comes off as arrogant. He seemed to have an excuse for every mistake he ever made. Hey Rob, we all make mistakes and we can all be forgiven. There is no need for rationalization.

  • Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys

    Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.

    He was a man who didn’t deserve a second chance... but he needed one. Emily and her husband, Sandy Portman, seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building. But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident. The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment. But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Harbor Lights to be better than the print version?

    The print version has to be better. The narration was awkward. It sounded as if a beginning reader was sounding out words and syllables.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It should be read like an adult reading to another adult.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was very moving.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Teddy says: "Demented, twisted, sick and I loved it!"
    "Longest listen ever. I grew to hate Amy and Nick!"

    What disappointed you about Gone Girl?

    Story was disappointing.


    What was most disappointing about Gillian Flynn’s story?

    Amy and Nick survived. Most annoying characters ever.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine. The story was painful. Ugh!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom
