    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story

    Drinking game... take a shot each time you hear "Jobs was furious."

    This book doesn't seem to be written for people who actually followed Apple and Steve Jobs. Some of the content is flat wrong.

    The reader is incredibly annoying and whiney. He sometimes made me 'furious'... :)

  • True Detectives: A Novel

    Story

    In Jonathan Kellerman's gripping novels, the city of Los Angeles is as much a living, breathing character as the heroes and villains who roam its labyrinthine streets. Sunny on the surface but shadowy beneath, this world of privilege and pleasure has a dark core and a dangerous edge. In True Detectives, Kellerman skillfully brings his renowned gifts for breathless suspense and sharp psychological insight to a tale that resonates on every level and satisfies at every turn.

    Overall

    This is convoluted, pointless crap. The characters and their relationships are quite frankly boring and annoying. The murder plot is uninteresting, as so much of the book focuses on this dumb animosity between the two brother detectives. Worst of all, the narrator's voice for the main character "Mo" is just plain awful -- it sounds like a mix between someone constipated and crying.

    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.

    "Intensely Boring"
    Overall

    The first hour of the book is good and promising. The rest of it drones on and on and on and ........ I'm shocked that people describe the book as suspenseful. It is the antithesis of suspenseful. It tries to be poetic, but the prose lands flat. I had been interested in seeing the movie, but not now. And yes -- the narration is horrible.

    Women are dying. Women who have nothing in common except the fact that they once worked for the military. And they knew Jack Reacher. How and why these women are in danger completely baffles the elite FBI team working the case. There is no trace evidence. There are no links between victims. Their bodies have no fatal wounds. And the killer entered their homes and exited again like a summer breeze.

    Ed says: "Great book with a single flaw"
    "Worst of the series"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed all of the Reacher books I've read so far, but this one has too many holes. The biggest hole of all (minor spoiler) is this hostile relationship with the FBI.

    Are we supposed to forget the 2nd book in the series (Die Trying), where he's a gigantic hero of the FBI? Since the story refers to previous Reacher novels, I assume we're to take the series as an ongoing story. If that's the case, the FBI's animosity towards him is a ridiculous premise. With this premise blown, the story makes absolutely no sense.

    A movie director is charged with murdering an actress during sex, and then staging her death to make it look like a suicide. In a seemingly unrelated case, a loner is murdered, leaving the sheriff's department with no clues. One unsettling revelation after another leaves a retired FBI agent and an L.A. detective thinking they've unmasked a most frightening killer with almost inconceivable calculation.

    Aaron says: "Terrific Pairing of Connelly's best Detectives."
    "Narrator is the worst ever"
    Overall

    The book content is good. But, the narrator completely ruins it. His voice is extremely annoying -- starts sentences loudly and ends sentences in a barely audible mumble.
