    Refreshes the parts other history books can’t reach...A bit ropy on the Renaissance? In the dark about the Enlightenment? Or, in fact, do you need a revision course on the entire history of the world and want to read a witty, irreverent, definitely not boring romp through everything that has ever happened on planet earth – from 15 billion years BC to the present day? Good.

    What disappointed you about A Less Boring History of the World?

    i wanted this to be an educational read to learn more in an interesting way --- book is written to be goofy and stupid. I STRONGLY recommend that you listen to the sample of the book before you buy so you know what i am saying. You will learn nothing from this, and it is not entertaining --- it is annoying.


    What could Dave Rear have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    not written it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Miles Jupp?

    anyone - i did not like the narrator


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointed

    Ponyboy can count on his brothers. And on his friends. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up "greasers" like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect, until the night someone takes things too far.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Outsiders to be better than the print version?

    yes. I vaguely remember reading this book in middle school. It helps to hear it read by someone who sounds like the characters in the book.


    What three words best describe Jim Fyfe’s voice?

    youthful

    Story
    (5685)

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    The solar system most of us grew up with included nine planets, with Mercury closest to the sun and Pluto at the outer edge. Then, in 2005, astronomer Mike Brown made the discovery of a lifetime: a 10th planet, Eris, slightly bigger than Pluto. But instead of its resulting in one more planet being added to our solar system, Brown's find ignited a firestorm of controversy that riled the usually sedate world of astronomy and launched him into the public eye.

    Lila in the end - saying adults are stupid
