    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.

    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.

    My husband and I love listening to Craig Johnson books in the car, we love the humor and wit along with the descriptive details of the different areas of Wyoming. His story lines are very captivating and well written. The reader does an excellent job in portraying Walt Longmire. The books are way better and more interesting than the TV series. (Even though I am a fan of the show).

    Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.

    If you are a Billy Crystal fan, you will absolutely love this book! If you aren't, give it a try and get to know him in this sort of "tell all book". I knew he was a sports fan, but I didn't realize he knew so many athletes. Hilarious quips, jokes, puns and his voice impressions are the best!

    I really like the Walt Longmire series! Craig Johnson does such an excellent job in portraying all the characters and the story with humor and wit. The plot is always very good! These books are so much better than the TV show "Longmire", but I like the TV show too! However, they only have 50 minutes to tell a story on TV, with the book you get details. I enjoy these books, so does my husband. We listen together while driving.
