    Joe Goffman was fifteen years out from his sleepy hometown when he wrote Bush Falls, a searing critique of its people and institutions. The book was a runaway best seller, and led to an even more successful movie. Now, however, Joe's got a problem. His father has suffered a stroke, and that means that Joe has to go back to his birthplace after having successfully antagonized every person living there. Can Joe survive the reservoirs of hatred that have been waiting to pour down upon him? Just maybe.

    Overall

    This is the second Tropper book I have listened to, and I haven't been let down yet. I love the quirky, early 30's characters that somehow can't help but mess up most of the things in their lives. I guess it is therapy for me - I don't seem half as messed up as I thought I was after reading about Joe's life! If you get this book, be ready to laugh out loud one minute, then be near tears the next. He goes through some tough subject matter, but in a way that doesn't seem too presumptuous or overwhelming. The characters deal with things the best they know how, and it makes for a very interesting story! Try it out!

    With her phenomenally popular Miss Julia series, author Ann B. Ross has graced the New York Times and other best seller lists on her way to capturing the hearts of her many dedicated fans. Miss Julia, a graceful Southern lady with impeccable manners and a penchant for problem solving, has become a beloved heroine for countless admirers.

    Overall

    I know there are probably many people out there who won't agree with me, but I found this book incredibly annoying and the plot line silly. The reader's Southern accent made my skin crawl (and being from Georgia, that takes alot), and I found the plot line about Miss Julia's marriage to be unrealistic - I felt like the character was completely from the 50's, but set in present day (and to me, not in an entertaining way). I've been trying for a month to listen to the whole thing and still have over half of the book to go. I seem to always find an excuse not to listen to this book/reader - I have a new CD that I like, or the dog needs attention, or the toilet needs cleaning...
    Try it if you want to, but I would definitely recommend listening to the preview first to see if you can stand the bad Southern accents. I wouldn't recommend this book though.

    To all appearances, Zachary King is a man with luck on his side. A steady, well-paying job, a rent-free Manhattan apartment, and Hope, his stunning, blue-blooded fiancee: smart, sexy, and completely out of his league. But as the wedding day looms, Zack finds himself haunted by the memory of his best friend, Rael, killed in a car wreck two years earlier, and by his increasingly complicated feelings for Tamara, the beautiful widow Rael left behind.

    Overall

    After 2 Tropper books in 2 months, I'm ready for him to write some more stories! I love this book about essentially a "quarter-life crisis" and a man who can't seem to stop screwing things up once he gets started. I think we've all felt this way at some point or another and this book had me calling my mom and saying how I wasn't so messed up after all - compared to Zach, anyway. This book had me laughing out loud as I drove down the interstate and wishing I could stay in my car instead of going in to work. Easy listening and perfect for someone like me with a sarcastic streak the size of Texas.
