    Sports fans are familiar with the thrill of a victory in Game 7 - and the agony of being on the losing end. What underlies these emotions? Your Brain on Cubs centers on America's pastime but draws in other sports as well for an intriguing examination of talent and triumph on the field and devotion in the stands.

    Overall

    The author compares studies in the human psyche to why people love the Chicago Cubs. A quirky, scientific, humorous way to describe why people enjoy a losing team. Though some parts of the scientifc theory can be a bit long and drawn out, overall, it's a unique way to get into the brain behind hardcore fans and how a losing team continues to thrive through the same fans.

    Story

    A larger-than-life hero with a towering personality, Robin Olds was a graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame for his All-American performance for Army. In World War II, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of 22—a double ace with twelve aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend.

    R. A. Frank says: "Top Notch Audiobook"
    "Phenomenal"
    Overall

    Book was well done and to have Olds read it himself added a great touch. Great insight to the pilot life of older wars with a touch of humor, suspense, and tragedy. Well written and well told. Phenomenal book.

    New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

    Lisa says: "Wonderful Book, Very Emotional"
    "One word...AMAZING"
    Overall

    The way this book was written keeps the mind in constant motion. Stories from all angles and all characters keep the book entertaining and keep the listener wanting more. There is nothing better from a book than when a listener feels that they are a part of the story--they become the character or feel they are conversating with the character. This book creates that sense of involvement. I wanted to keep listening and finish in a day. It was difficult to walk away.

  • Dexter by Design

    Story
    (677)

    After a joyous honeymoon in Paris, Dexter is feeling pretty normal. But when a corpse is found displayed on a Miami beach, Dexter realizes another killer is on the loose.

    Russell says: "Is there a such thing as 'too graphic'?"
    "Another great Dexter book"
    Overall

    Jeff Lindsay does it again. The dark Dexter humor, a serial killer case to solve, and an unusual twist in a style that only Jeff Lindsay could pull off. Not thrilled by the reader. He didn't fit the part, but that can be overlooked with such a good story.

    When we first meet 14-year-old Susie Salmon, she is already in heaven. In the sweet, untroubled voice of a precocious teenage girl, Susie relates the awful events of her death and her own adjustment to the strange new place where she finds herself. With love, longing, and a growing understanding, Susie watches her family as they cope with their grief. This story of seemingly unbearable tragedy is transformed into a suspenseful and touching narrative about family, memory, love, heaven, and living.

    Kim says: "Disappointing"
    "Great beginning but then....."
    Overall

    The highlight was having the actual author read the story and give insight into why it was written. The story line was great and the book was off to a great start. Unfortunately, I felt the end was rushed, almost like something was missing and the author was just trying to make it through.
