  • Born Standing Up: A Comic's Life

    In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

    Andrew says: "Fantastic"
    "Disappointingly Dull"
    Overall

    Maybe because I'm from a different (younger) generation, I'm missing subtle humor in this book. I guess I assumed that a memoir from a comedian would be, like the comedian's work, funny. Turns out this one isn't, and the narrator is surprisingly unenthusiastic about his own life. It's boring, skip it.

    Life is going pretty well for Raymond "Stick" Hart. He's happily married to the former Ponkaquogue Municipal Golf Club assistant pro, the beauteous Cajun firecracker Dannie, raising his rambunctious son, Charlie, and getting by writing smart-mouthed greeting cards for 50 bucks a pop. Then, one disaster of a day, Stick's world does a 10-car pile-up. Luckily, Stick has a solution to all his problems. He'll qualify for the British Open.

    Raymond says: "Better than Caddyshack"
    "Hysterical"
    Overall

    If you're a golfer at all and have a sense of humor, this book's perfect. I loved every second of it. The guy-talk is great, and the narrator is absolutely perfect. Each of his different voices makes me laugh every time.

  • The Colour of Magic: Discworld #1

    Story
    (1030)

    The Colour of Magic, the first novel in Terry Pratchett's wildly imaginative Discworld series, takes the listener on a remarkable journey. The magical planet of Discworld is supported by four massive elephants who stand on the back of the Great A'Tuin, a giant turtle swimming slowly through the mysterious interstellar gulf. An eccentric expedition sets out to explore the planet, encountering dragons who only exist if you believe in them, and of course "The Edge" of the planet.

    Joel says: "Start in any of seven Disworld books"
    "Imaginative but Hard to Follow"
    Overall

    I've really enjoyed Pratchett's non-discworld stuff. This was my first read in the discworld series and i have to say i was disappointed. The fantasy was just too hard for me to follow and didn't really add much to the plot of the book. I've read other reviewers who said this was a bad one to start with (which seems odd considering it's the first in the series). Anyway, I think I'll stick to his other work.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Funny and Fresh"
    Overall

    I read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last year and wasn't disappointed with the sequel one bit. Both Salander and Bloomquist are great characters and keep things light even though the story's dark. Really enjoyed it. The ending really went balls-out and reminded me a little of Angels & Demons. Best closing line to a book I've ever read.
