This was my first Mary Roach book. I've seen her interviewed and really thought I would enjoy her work. I choose this book because I thought it would be the most provocative of her subjects. Unfortunately, as vast and as strange as human sexuality is, I found her choices of topic to be rather uninteresting.More troubling was the reader. This is supposed to be a humorous book. I would have much rather heard the author read it, as the Sandar Burr has no sense of comic delivery.
I enjoyed Seabiscuit tremendously. This book is also very compelling. My only complaint is that Ms. Hillenbrand occasionally is a bit too hyperbolic in her descriptions. At one point she describes Louis' captures forcing 200 other prisoners to line up and punch Louis in the face as hard as they could. If this actually happened, Louis would have died from the beating.
Seabiscuit was 5 star.
The narrative was very easy to follow. Enjoyed him as a reader.
this is a very well written book with very compelling arguments.
Christopher Hitchens tends to swallow the words at the end of a sentence. It may be simply not being used to is accent. He writes very complex sentences and is making a lot of logical arguments. It would be nice if he paused a bit to allow you to comprehend a premise before jumping into a conclusion.
No, because he dead.
