    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    So very funny, it is like a stand up. Very very funny! It's like she is having a conversation with herself and you get to hear her crazy internal monologue.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    Story

    Some stories are great for the movies this book is so awesome that you could not make it justice by making it into a movie, there are enough stories within this book to make it a series but an HBO or Showtime type series. Or Netflix! This is a great, great book one of my favorite.

    Seth Weinstein knew Tina was way out of his league in pretty much any way you could imagine, which is why it continued to astonish him that he was on the plane now for their destination wedding in Florida. The Groom Posse had already sprung an airport prank on him, and he'd survived it, and if that was the worst of it, everything should be okay. Smooth sailing from now on. Seth has absolutely no idea what he's about to get into.

    Story

    It's like the hangover but instead of Vegas is in Miami. The characters are funny but as always with romantic comedies they make the bride or the groom look bad just so the can justify not getting married or leaving them for someone else.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    This book reads like it was written by a teenager and the reader perform just like one too! The story sounds like an extended short story by a 9th grader.

    This is by far my favorite author, nothing reads like Christopher Moore. Be careful if you listen to this while driving people will think you are crazy. You may not be able to get away with listening to this at work because you will be laughing hard. This entire series is great! Actually anything this guy write is funny even his facebook post are crazy.

    It’s ho, ho, ho time in this hilarious and wacky Florida holiday tale, featuring bighearted psychopath Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman. Like Santa, Serge knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, he is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents. But before that, it’s all a big free-range Christmas office party, where Serge will be spreading his special cheer. And there’s that last-minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves - they bite).

    Story

    The book is funny but it reads like a few extra chapters from atomic lobsters. Very short and not too much of a story, still funny. He is no Christopher Moore but when you have nothing else it’s something that will keep you entertained.

    Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it; others run for their lives. No matter.

    Paul says: "You Gotta Love Serge!"
    "Great book Bad audiobook"
    Overall

    Wow! I was so disappointed by the quality of this audio book. The production is horrible! You can hear the narrator swallowing after every sentence. If you like Tim Dorsey sticks with the books narrated by Oliver W. He does a great Serge, this guy not so much.
