    Polls reveal that 85 percent of Americans believe there was a conspiracy behind Lee Harvey Oswald. Some even believe Oswald was entirely innocent. In this encyclopedic, absorbing audiobook, Vincent Bugliosi shows how the public has come to believe such lies about the day that changed the course of history. Bugliosi has devoted almost 20 years of his life to this project, and is determined to show that, despite the overwhelming popular perception, Oswald killed Kennedy and acted alone.

    Lawrence D. Clayton says: "On an equal footing with Helter Skelter"
    "Drawn out"
    Overall

    The first part was interesting, then it became long and drawn out. The author spends alot of time trying to convince, instead of presenting an argument. I'm still not convinced it was not a conspriacy.

    The readers voice is horrible. Why is he whispering? I could not get through the first 30 minutes!

    Story

    In researching his acclaimed true-crime books, Philip Carlo interviewed some of the most infamous criminals and killers of our times in prisons and on death rows throughout the country. He was able to forge trusting relationships with his subjects, enabling him to extract the facts behind their monstrous acts and identify what motivated them to commit their horrific crimes.

    Jeffrey says: "self indulgent"
    "Deceptive"
    Overall

    The title and book sample is very deceptive. It uses the names of serial killers and insinuates that the book will be about interviews the author has conducted with them; whereas in actuality the book is just a bio about the author's disease. I am sorry that he became sick, but I believe the book should not deceive the reader as to its contents.

    Confessions of a Video Vixen is the widely anticipated memoir of Karrine Steffans, the once-sought-after sexy siren who appeared in the music videos of multiplatinum hip hop artists such as Jay-Z, R. Kelly, and LL Cool J. A top-paid video dancer, Karrine transitioned to film when acclaimed director F. Gary Gray picked her to costar in his film A Man Apart, starring Vin Diesel.

    Overall

    If you like a good slut story this is it. The celebrities she talks about are "has beens" and were not that big in the first place. She truly was a slut. I deleted this book from my library.

  • An Ordinary Man: An Autobiography

    As his country was being torn apart by violence during the Rwandan genocide of 1994, hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina, the "Oskar Schindler of Africa", refused to bow to the madness that surrounded him. Confronting killers with a combination of diplomacy, flattery, and deception, he offered shelter to more than 12,000 members of the Tutsi clan and Hutu moderates, while homicidal mobs raged outside with machetes.

    Lori J. Rosendahl says: "Not An Ordinary Memoir"
    "Extremely Boring!"
    Overall

    I managed to survive 2 hours and I could not take anymore. I understand the author has to tell the history of Rwanda, but get on with the story, jeez!
