    In a memoir by turns moving, tragic, and hilarious, Jerry Lewis recounts with crystal clarity every step of a 50-year friendship, from the springtime, 1945 afternoon when the two vibrant young performers destined to conquer the world together met on Broadway and 54th Street, to their tragic final encounter in the 1990s, when Lewis and his wife ran into Dean Martin, a broken and haunted old man.

    "great book"
    Overall

    This is an excellent book. I'm not a big Jerry Lewis fan but I found his stories heartwarming, funny, and honest. He was candid about the bad times but was still able look back at the good times with fondness and a sense of humor. A very entertaining read. I had a hard time turning off my IPOD.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Any additional comments?

    The story moves along at a quick pace and once I started listening it was hard to stop. The book itself I would categorize as Fantasy/Young Adult. When I checked Audible it states this is book 1 of a series. The ending is statisfying although there is much left unresolved. I will definitely buy the next audiobook.

  • The Rope: An Anna Pigeon Mystery, Book 17

    Thirty-five years old, fresh off the bus from New York City, and nursing a shattered heart, Anna Pigeon takes a decidedly unglamorous job as a seasonal employee of the Glen Canyon National Recreational Area. On her day off, she goes hiking into the park never to return. Her co-workers think she’s simply moved on - her cabin is cleaned out and her things gone. Anna herself wakes up, trapped at the bottom of a dry natural well, naked, without supplies and no clear memory of how she got into this situation. As she slowly pieces together her memory, it soon becomes clear that someone has trapped her there....

    If you’ve listened to books by Nevada Barr before, how does this one compare?

    Not my favorite. It spend much of the book on Anna's internal thoughts and on bullying. It needs more story. Another reviews states that she gets out of several impossible situations which is true but I found that part interesting. She dislocations her shoulder and is able to perform Fantastic feats. I have dislocated my shoulder before and I had trouble putting on my jacket.


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The is the first book I have heard her but she does an excellent job.

  • Snow Crash

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "don't waste a credit"
    Overall

    This is the worst audiobook since sound was invented. I don't know why this book has so many good reviews. It has a bunch of random ideas about the future with no apparent plot. It is also a very negative book. The first couple of hours of the book goes into brutal detail of how the US only has two jobs, pizza delivery and computer coding. If this sounds interesting, it isn't. Stay away.

    No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself.

    Overall

    If you were judging a book by its cover you might think this is a "Mike Hammer" or "Sam Spade" type novel but you would be wrong. The best way to describe this booklet, is to imagine a CSI episode told to you by two old men who forget how the show ended.

    Stephen King's first full-length solo novel since Dreamcatcher, the long-awaited From a Buick 8 is "nearly flawless and one terrific entertainment," says Publishers Weekly. A strange car acts as a conduit between our world and some other...and the boogeyman of this creepy story is our collective fascination with deadly things.

    J M says: "Essence of Stephen King"
    "Not his worst, but close"
    Overall

    This is not SK's worst book(Rose Madder was worse) but close. I am a huge Stephen King fan but this was just plain boring. Nothing really happens through most of the book and when it does its not that interesting. Listen to the Dark Tower series instead.

  • The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    Dawn says: "Unbelieveable"
    "No Spoilers but 1 word of advice"
    Overall

    I have been reading this series since 1982 and have the orginal hardback edition (which was 80$ new, yikes!!) and have loved every single book of the Dark Tower series. If, you are reading this, you have already decided to download the book. I agree with the other reviewers that the first book "The Gunslinger" has to be read/listen to first. There is another point in the book that SK says you can end here. For this 1st ending reading the first book isn't nessary(but really, who will stop then). Great ending to a great series.
