    From the unique perspective of David Sedaris comes a new collection of essays taking his listeners on a bizarre and stimulating world tour. From the perils of French dentistry to the eating habits of the Australian kookaburra, from the squat-style toilets of Beijing to the particular wilderness of a North Carolina Costco, we learn about the absurdity and delight of a curious traveler's experiences.

    Story

    I've been waiting for this to some out for a while, and it's SO good. David Sedaris is just great, super funny. I made an ass out of myself laughing as I walked down the street alone a few times. If you don't already, download everything he has ever written. It's worth it. He has not written a bad book.

  • The Interestings

    Story

    The summer that Nixon resigns, six teenagers at a summer camp for the arts become inseparable. Decades later the bond remains powerful, but so much else has changed. In The Interestings, Wolitzer follows these characters from the height of youth through middle age, as their talents, fortunes, and degrees of satisfaction diverge. The kind of creativity that is rewarded at age 15 is not always enough to propel someone through life at age 30; not everyone can sustain, in adulthood, what seemed so special in adolescence.

    Story

    It took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did it was totally engrossing. If you were to describe the plot of The Interstings to someone it wouldn't sound like that good of a book, but once you get past the first few chapters you find yourself feeling really invested in the lives of each character who each had their own distinct voice and personality.

    I love this book, it was really well written and the voice actor was really talented.

    Story

    The author doesn't give any real infromation about ghost hunting, he talks a lot about how to organize a good group of people to go ghost hunting, but then doesn't say a think about the actual ghost hunt and what should go on in one. I know the book is short, but seriously? Their is no substance what so ever. The narration was good, but that's the only thing. Don't waste your time/money.

    Jacob Tomsky has worked in hotels for more than a decade, doing everything from valet parking to manning the front desk. He's checked you in, checked you out, separated your white panties from the white bed sheets, parked your car, tasted your room service, cleaned your toilet, denied you a late check out, given you a wake-up call, eaten M&Ms out of your mini-bar, laughed at your jokes, and taken your money. And in Heads in Beds, he pulls back the curtain on the hospitality business.

    Story

    This book was just fantastic, I could not stop listening and listening to the whole thing in one day (at the gym and doing housework.. I'm not that lazy!). I was thourally engrossed in the interesting life of working at a hotel. Tomsky paints a wonderful picture of what it is like to work in a high end hotel well also providing useful infromation about how to get free upgrades. I love everything about this book.

    After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna is desperate for a change. She’s supported her ex-husband’s dreams for so long that she can’t even remember her own... until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents’ home and envisions her very own cooking store. Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna’s adoptive mother.

    Story

    Although I did enjoy the story, every male character was completely one-dimensional, and the voice performance was pretty bad and was really frustrating at time when she spoke internal dialogue as if each character was constantly making lists. This would have been a lot better if it had been narrated by someone else.
