    Story

    The extraordinarily evocative stories depict the generation born in a small-town America during the Depression and growing up in a world where the old sexual morality was turned around and material comforts were easily had. Yet, as these stories reflect so accurately, life was still unsettling, and Updike chronicles telling moments both joyful and painful. The texts are taken from his recent omnibus, The Early Stories, 1953-1975.

    Serious literature. Insightful stories but must appreciate Updike as author.

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Excellent, excellent"
    Overall

    Wonderful book. Hated for it to be over. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to learn more about this fascinating world.

    As Clay Carter digs into the background of his client, a young man charged with a random street killing, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life - that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts...

    Lisa says: "The King of Torts"
    "Learn about law"
    Overall

    I found the King of Torts not to be a great novel but an interesting learning experience on Tort law. This made the recent campaign issue on liability law more relevant. Good character development, although somewhat trite.
