    In this wickedly honest new work, Chelsea Handler casts the net wider with even funnier results, recalling the most noteworthy highs and lows of her life to date - including her efforts to diversify by dating red-haired men, her obsession with midgets, and the dog-sitting interlude in which her boyfriend became overly familiar with a Peekapoo.

    Teddy says: "Just Plain FUNNYYYY!!!!!!!!!"

    If you like Chelsea from TV, you will like the book. Many times I laughed out loud and other times I was thinking "I can't believe she said that!" (but she did). A good listen if you need something humorus for a change.

In Plain Sight sees game warden Joe Pickett's life take a turn for the worse after millionaire Opal Scarlett goes missing.

    Story

    Wow! Some of the descriptive scenes were pretty brutal, but necessary to depict the story to completion. Well written and suspenseful! I enjoy CJ Box involves Joe Pickett's family in each book and describes how much bureaucracy there is within the departments of his job and the chain of command involved with his position as a Wyoming game warden. Each book of the Joe Pickett series gets better and better!

    It's an idyllic late-summer day in Saddlestring, Wyoming, and game warden Joe Pickett is fly-fishing with his two daughters when he stumbles upon the mutilated body of a moose. Whatever - or whoever - attacked the animal was ruthless: half the animal's face has been sliced away, the skin peeled back from the flesh. Shaken by the sight, Joe starts to investigate what he hopes in an isolated incident.

    This book enlightens the reader on some of the ways each department of the US government handle situations involving crimes in the wilderness. Very informative read! CJ Box is an awesome writer and the Joe Pickett series are very captivating. All of his family are mentioned in each book and he involves them in his stories which I like. I recommend this series to anyone that enjoys vast countryside descriptions of Wyoming along with a well written story.

    Author Craig Johnson is one of my favorites! I have enjoyed the series and hope for more! This book is about modern life in Wyoming with the oil field, Cheyenne nation and the unlawful branch off of the LDS church. George (the reader) should of done his homework on the LDS religion and Utah, he mispronounced several common words in the west. Other than that, the story was well written and did not disappoint! As always, I enjoy the humor, vast descriptions and the characters in this series. Keep 'em coming Mr. Johnson!

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    Story

    A good tale about a boy growing up and all the obstacles, good and bad experiences, good and bad choices. The unabridged version is really long, the author takes a long time to get to a point, especially at the end. Rushes through some things and drags out others. However it is a good story, EXCELLENT reader!! Just way to long!

    The humor and characters in this story will reel you in! Craig Johnson is a very descriptive writer and I enjoy his style. These Walt Longmire series are favorites of me and my husband. I enjoy his interactions with "the locals" in this book. The story will take a twist, a double meaning in the title!

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

    Good story about being yourself. Gives an insight on how some highly intelligent men are treated unfairly in social arenas. The story is likable especially when Don realizes his own social short comings. Rosie, is a project Don has taken on to help find her father and she teaches him about "real life" in several social settings. It's a fun listen.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    It was a good listen, the language was a bit crude but I guess it was needed to portray the characters particular moods each time. A love story gone bad. The readers were exceptionally good! It was a captivating story with twists, however, I didn't like the ending at all.
