    In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. In the midst of the plague, he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized by his town and his school because of the HIV infection he had contracted from a blood transfusion. Ryan's inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis. Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague.

  • ComPETability: Solving Behavior Problems in Your Multi-Dog Household

    The United States is home to 78.2 million owned dogs, and 28 percent of owners own more than one dog while 12 percent own three or more. That means more furry love for owners, but also can create a howling mess over that (GRRRR!) new canine friend. From conflicts over favorite toys and chew bones to sharing time with a favorite human, adding new pets rubs fur the wrong way and creates hairy situations for everyone - including you.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The audio quality of this book is terrible. It is very tinny in quality. Sometime difficult to listen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters, per se.


    Any additional comments?

    The information in this book is EXCELLENT. It's a shame that the audio quality of the recording is so poor.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story
    (15599)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    Craig Wasson's narration of the book added so much to the experience of "reading" the book. I can't imagine what it would've been like without this major contribution to the book.


    What does Craig Wasson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I said above...Craig Wasson's narration of the book added so much to the experience of "reading" the book. I can't imagine what it would've been like without this major contribution to the book. His incredible acting talent and creation of voices for each of the characters only added more depth to the book than if I had been reading it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If only the length of the book were possible to do in one sitting. There were so many times that I had to just continue listening to it from having it plugged into my car and then plugging headphones in to continue listening to it at home. I was even tempted to try to listen to it at work!
