    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Overall

    This book was definitely writen for woman and guy men. I used to like Tina Fey much more than I do now that I've listened to this book. I thought she was smart, funny and above all, open minded! However, "Bossy Pants" provides a window into a bitter, angry, selfish and slightly racist person (closet racist) who suddenly has enough power to get back at people who were mean to her in highschool. I get her humor, I really do. Its the main reason I bought the book to begin with but I was unaware of the caty, bitchy woman hidden behind the vale of smart comedy. In my eyes she went from exeptional (but modest) to common and over rated. I'm disappointed not in the quality of the book, witch really was funny for the most part, but in the the author. I wanted so much to like the book but instead, it made me take her off the comic pedistal...

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Not really worth 2 credits"
    Overall

    Not exactly a bad book but alot slower paced than I expected. The story starts to become kind of a downer after a while, with nothing but bad luck, bad memories and bad omens. You keep expecting some kind of redeeming event to happen but it never comes. In fact, the big moment kind of falls flat. You feel like "what? is that it?" then it goes on for a while and ends with no real resolution. They're obviousley trying to leave the door open for a series of books. Kind of a ripoff of "I am legend" with a longer timeline.

    When a mysterious envelope arrives for Jake Ransom, he and his older sister, Kady, are plunged into a gripping chain of events. An artifact found by their parents - on the expedition from which they never returned - leads Jake and Kady to a strange world inhabited by a peculiar mix of long-lost civilizations, a world that may hold the key to their parents' disappearance.

    Amazon Customer says: "Continuous mispronunciations by the Narrator..."
    "Harper audio for "KIDS!!""
    Overall

    Actually a pretty good book but writen for preteens. I was upset that it doesnt say that in any of the descriptions. I felt kinda dooped but having puchased it, I listened to it and found it to be worth while. Exellent if you have a preteen to listen with you.

    Andrew "Ender" Wiggin was not the only child in the Battle School; he was just the best of the best. In this book, Card tells the story of another of those precocious generals, the one they called Bean, the one who became Ender's right hand, part of his team, in the final battle against the Buggers. Bean's past was a battle just to survive. His success brought him to the attention of the Battle School's recruiters.

    Overall

    I experiment with authors unknown to me all the time and I listen to a lot of fiction but I dont give praise easily. This book was the exception. On par with some of the best fiction (SiFi or otherwise) that I have ever read. Maybe a little better than "Enders Game" the only people I can imagine that wont like this book are those dull wited individuals like the ones in the book its self (you'll know what I mean) you should, however, read "Enders Game" first.
