  • Father Joe: The Man Who Saved My Soul

    This runaway New York Times best seller is a book to savor and treasure. Author Tony Hendra, a National Lampoon and Spy magazine veteran and one of the world's greatest satirists, delivers a beautifully written, humorous, and profoundly moving memoir reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie.

    Overall

    I couldn't agree more with an earlier reviewer that said, "I found it a bit tedious. The book is poorly paced and the writing, line-by-line, uninspired; the efforts at humor were effortful."

    I'm the kind of person that can listen to nearly anything and find something interesting ... not so with this book. Yes, thee Father Joe sounds interesting, but there is so little actually there about Father Joe. It took real effort to force myself to listen, the whole time thinking that something would happen that would redeem the tediousness.

    I had heard Tony on The Moth podcast and loved him - decided that moment to listen to his book. Big mistake! His ~10 minute rendition of the story on the podcast was a hundred times better than the 10 hour book.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Spellbinding!"
    Overall

    I simply cannot think of one, single way to improve the story or how it was delivered! Each day I found myself sitting in my car in the garage, listening to just a few more minutes before I had to turn the key off and go back to reality. I laughed, I cried, my heart ached and soared - - and I didn't want the story to end.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"
    "Entertaining to the last drop"
    Overall

    I haven't always been a Tina Fey fan (and frankly not a big fan of 30 Rock) but after this book I'm ready to sign up for her fan club. I found her humor on target and the book engrossing. Thanks Tina!
