    In Biloxi, Mississippi, a landmark tobacco trial with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake begins routinely, then swerves mysteriously off course. The jury is behaving strangely, and at least one juror is convinced he's being watched...

    "Very enjoyable and easy to listen to"
    Overall

    This was a terrific and engrossing story that unfolded nicely. Once I got used to the way Frank Muller ended many of his sentences on a high note, I enjoyed his reading. I couldn?t wait to unravel the story each day. A couple of times I even took a quick listen when I found myself with some short waiting time. It was easy to keep this story line straight and to pick it up for short or long periods. I also had the text, and in this case the audio followed it perfectly. Sometimes I reread a chapter. I found I recalled it all, which surprised me a bit. I had thought that maybe, while driving, I might have lost focus at times and missed some of the story. I waited to finish the book before I saw the movie. I couldn?t avoid the ads, however, and immediately put the actors faces on their characters in my mind?s eye as I listed to the audio book.

    Paralyzed by grief and unable to put his thoughts into words, Nick, a fire captain, seeks the help of a writer to compose eulogies for the colleagues and friends he lost in the catastrophic events of September 11, 2001. As Joan, an editor, draws Nick out about "the guys," the substance and meaning that lie beneath the surface of seemingly unremarkable people is revealed. And Nick and Joan learn about themselves, about life, and about the healing power of human connection through talking about the guys.

    Cynthia says: "good treatment"
    "Extraordinary"
    Overall

    An extraordinary short play based on the author's 9/11 experiences played by two actors in dialog and monologue. This was a brief and captivating listen, very well suited to the audio book medium. This audio book has rightfully won an Audie award. The play did very well in New York and outside, apparently attracting a stream of heavy actors to do their turn at the roles. This audio book version features Swoosie Kurtz and Bill irwin. Good writing and excellent use of the format. I wish I could share it with friends.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    Story

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Fair and thankfully not balanced"

    Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them

    Al Franken's book should be required reading for every voter in the next presidential election. Can't quote it? Can't pull the lever!

    I enjoyed this book tremendously. The other thought I had about this audio book is that Al Franken has most successfully evolved a new performance media. This audio book is actually the best media in which to hear Franken's words. If you only read the print, you miss a great deal of the value of the audio book. If it was a video performance tape, I couldn't possibly site through it. But as the audio format is perfect!
