  • Tough Sh-t: Life Advice from a Fat, Lazy Slob Who Did Good

    Take one look at Kevin Smith: He's a balding fatty who wears a size XXL hockey jersey, shorts, and slippers year-round. Not a likely source for life advice. But take a second look at Kevin Smith: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-four with the release of Clerks, and since then has gone on to make nine more profitable movies, runs his own production company, wrote a best-selling graphic novel, and has a beautiful wife and kids. So he must be doing something right.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was an interesting read giving you an indepth perspective and some real life advice from someone that is not trying to be "a teacher"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are no characters, so I guess Kevin Smith. But when he mimicked his wife I laughed every time.


    What about Kevin Smith’s performance did you like?

    I always love how real Kevin Smith is. He recognizes that he's just a regular guy. He might be rich and recognizable, but he's still just a dude.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Look for where the puck is going to be. And, Bruce Willis is a dick


    Any additional comments?

    Love Kevin Smith! (hated clerks)

    Here is the saga of a people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear; how they lived; the animals they hunted; the great totems they revered. But mostly it is the story of Ayla, the girl they found and raised, who was not like them. To the Clan, her fair looks make her different - ugly.

    If you could sum up The Clan of the Cave Bear in three words, what would they be?

    Beautiful look back


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ayla, I love to hear about her struggles and thoughts and all the things that she goes through.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When she used her sling to save the baby.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she leaves and all you hear is her baby screaming mama!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is such a moving tale that has so much information about how early man survived. It makes me want to learn some of the things that they did.

    Story

    At least this wasn't the standard romance procedure. The story was convoluted and a bit ridiculous and I was glad when it was over. It wasn't terrible, it wasn't great it was just...meh.
    The narrator had such a thick accent that there were times that I could barely understand her. Especially when she was doing the cooing simpering voice of the heroine.

    The season of gift-giving is here, and this year we've got something special for our members: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Yuletide whodunit "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle". In this holiday-themed short story, Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick, Dr. Watson, follow the trail of a lost hat and a Christmas goose through the streets of London and into a rapidly expanding mystery.

    Story

    I got it cause it was free. But, having absolutely no previous knowledge of Sherlock other than knowing that he was an english detective it was great to hear exactly how his mind works and to "see" him putting things together. I was surprised and a bit bummed when it was over.

    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    Story

    This is a well written and well performed piece. It was so nice to hear about love and family and witchiness. There were several times in the book that I wished I could do magic like that! The book explained magic in a way that was very interesting and seemed sort of reality based. Magic or no, I sure wish I had a family like this!

    I wasn't sure how I would like it. I mean, I know it's a classic, but sometimes classics can be a little...dry, to us modern readers. It was FANTASTIC! Tim Curry was masterful and I enjoyed every second of it. I hated having to get out of my car because I would have to stop listening. The story is so much better than any movie adaptation I've ever seen and I'd highly recommend it to all.

    Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his 20-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust.

    Story

    This was not my favorite. Don't get me wrong, it's still a good book and it's still worth reading. But, comparing it to any Stephanie Plum books, or even the first Wicked book leaves it lacking. The story just doesn't plow as smoothly as previous books. And it simply wasn't as funny as the other one. I'm still going to be following this series, but I hope this was just a lull.
