    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "This book is LOL funny!"

    Story

    I had no idea what to expect with this book, being unfamiliar with Jenny's blog.....OMG, it is hysterical! Finished it in one afternoon --- I just couldn't stop listening! Three more people bought this book after I played the Ex-Lax chapter for them. Jenny Lawson is funny, crude, tender, loving and human. She has issues (and who doesn't), but she has an amazing gift for putting her life's experiences into words that anyone can relate to. If you have a crazy family that you love, then you will love this book!!

    It looked for all the world like a terrible, tragic accident. Susanna Morgan had gotten up in the middle of the night, tripped, fallen, and broken her neck. Yet when detective Justin Westwood inspects the victim's apartment, he can't help noticing that the details don't quite add up. The glass on the bedside table is knocked over but there are no cuts on her body. The scrape on her knee looks suspiciously fresh. And then a terrified witness comes forward, confirming his worst fear.

    Story

    Didn't expect much of this impulsive purchase, but ended up loving the book and the narrator. Sorry Mr. Schirner, but at first your voice irritated me, then by chapter 3, I fell in love with the way you intoned all the characters. I let myself be enjoyably tossed around by the author, not trying to figure out the conclusion, and I loved all the twists and turns and unexpected revelations. Fun stuff for those of us who love government conspiracy theories.

    From one of the most admired and beloved couples in recent American history, an extraordinarily moving story of public service, risk-taking, romance - and the journey toward recovery. This book delivers hope and redemption in the face of the tragic shooting, and introduces two unforgettable heroes.

    Their story of tragedy, struggle and triumph is truly inspiring. To hear Gabby read the last chapter of the book absolutely made me cry with heartfelt joy for her and her family. Go Gabby and Mark!

    One hundred years ago, scientists would have said that lasers, televisions, and the atomic bomb were beyond the realm of physical possibility. In Physics of the Impossible, the renowned physicist Michio Kaku explores to what extent the technologies and devices of science fiction that are deemed equally impossible today might well become commonplace in the future.

    Kurt says: "Inspired"
    "Outstanding Book. Needs Author as Narrator."
    Overall

    Narrator does not have passion or understanding of the subject matter. Dr. Kaku's voice would bring both!
