  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    I really enjoyed this book. Probably the best use of a credit since Tina Fey's Bossypants or Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? Smith is funny and engaging, and his stories are heartfelt. While I don't think this will help anyone succeed in any real way, I do think that Smith offers some great insights about life. Highly recommended.

    Wealthy Assistant D.A. Logan Montgomery needs to ruin his reputation - fast! That's the only way he'll be able to convince his father that he's not cut out to follow the family tradition of going into politics. His plan? To indulge in a very public fling with a woman whose family is a scandal in itself. It should have been the perfect solution....Only, the more time Logan spends with Catherine Luck, the more he realizes he'd give up his reputation--and everything else--for just one night in her bed.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    There wasn't enough story to make this a worthwhile listening experience. I know it was only 5 hours, but you'd figure there would be a little more character development. Alas, there was not.


    What didn’t you like about Julie Fain Lawrence’s performance?

    It would have been MUCH better if the narrator had not tried to use a Boston accent. It was distracting.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    "Terrible"
    Overall

    This is literally the only audiobook I've never finished. The plot was contrived at best, and I absolutely couldn't stand Diana during most parts of this novel. There were many instances where the author went on and on in excruciating detail about a rug or a style of architecture that really had no relevance. I wouldn't recommend this at all.
