    Story

    I thought the book was well written and well preformed. There was some bloody details involving animals that seemed sensationalized. I think the book would have been just as strong without those parts. The ending left me cold. I could think of half a dozen ways to end the story that might have made our hero more of a hero. I do like the character of Joe Picket, he is humble and understated. He reminds me a little of the Jim Chee character in the famous Tony Hillerman books.

    I was hanging in there and trying to like it until the heroine began killing deer like a freaking serial killer. Then the "accident" happened and I was just turned off by the whole thing and quit listening to it.

    Oliver Sacks' The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat tells the stories of individuals afflicted with fantastic perceptual and intellectual aberrations: patients who have lost their memories and with them the greater part of their pasts; who are no longer able to recognize people and common objects; who are stricken with violent tics and grimaces or who shout involuntary obscenities; whose limbs have become alien; who have been dismissed as retarded yet are gifted with uncanny artistic or mathematical talents.

  • You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself

    An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday.

    Story

    I like the fact that the language is modern and hip. It makes it more entertaining to listen to. It is funny and inspires self-reflection. I also like that he finishes each chapter with a little snippet of self-help; emphasizing that we are not slaves to the autocratic parts of our brains.

    Tess, an aspiring seamstress, thinks she's had an incredibly lucky break when she is hired by famous designer Lady Lucile Duff Gordon to be a personal maid on the Titanic's doomed voyage. Once on board, Tess catches the eye of two men, one a roughly-hewn but kind sailor and the other an enigmatic Chicago millionaire. But on the fourth night, disaster strikes. Amidst the chaos and desperate urging of two very different suitors, Tess is one of the last people allowed on a lifeboat. Tess’s sailor also manages to survive unharmed, witness to Lady Duff Gordon’s questionable actions during the tragedy.

    Story

    I didn't get past the first part and abandoned the book after the Titanic sank. I got tired of the simpering personality of the heroine. I wanted her to just stand up for herself just once and quit apologizing. I also thought when she talked to the reporter how stupid she was. I could see that coming like a freight train. I just dislike authors who write helpless, stupid women heroines.
