    Chelsea Handler loves to smoke out "dumbassness", the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers - they've all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they've lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time, write about them.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me the most enjoyable?

    The characters in all of Handler's previous books finally become real and take the reins in this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Chelsea graciously replies to each story with her own rebuttal in the only way she knows how: delightfully insulting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Chelsea is able to bring those around her into her schemes to make them more realistic. She convinces can take somebody's weakness and exploit it to the brink of destruction. She had an OCD colleague convinced that her employee was becoming her adoptive son, living with her, going on vacations with her, not paying rent... but it was never true. This wouldn't bother most people, but Chelsea knew an OCD wouldn't be able to take it. Brilliant.


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

    Everything. I'd love to be Chelsea's friend.

    It's over! I feel completely satisfied in this ending. What a heartwarming story. Lyra has formed into a wise young woman, and the armored bears are back. Yay!

    In this stunning sequel to The Golden Compass, the intrepid Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld, Cittagazze, where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: twelve-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

    Story

    The Golden Compass grabbed my attention and I could not stop there. The second book is a great story, and I have heard from many people that it is their favorite of the series, but I could not develop a good relationship with Will. I found him to be overbearing and annoying. That being said, I really enjoyed where this story took Lyra and how she has begun forming herself into a brave young woman. The lack of armored bears and whininess of Will give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Story

    I had never read His Dark Materials growing up, and in getting my first taste as an adult, I thought the book was genius. I really enjoyed The Golden Compass more than the next two, but as a whole story together, I could not stop listening. I ended up finishing the series within a week. Even if the story were dull (which is not the case), the performance would have kept me interested. There are different voices for each character, which keeps thing livens up the story to the fullest extent. Bravo.
