yes, because I enjoy Odd's sense of humor and perspective on life and the people areound him. I like the plot twists and am sure there are probably some nuances I missed the first time around.
The discovery of a body at the end of the tunnel
When Ed talked to Odd on the truck radio
This was a fun, suspenseful and thought provoking book that was hard to put down.
Twisted tale set in rural Iowa, not too far from Cedar Rapids. The depiction of most of the people and town life is accurate. Some of the character development strained my ability to believe the connections. Still, the humor plot twists and untangling the web surprised me at the very end. A good listen for long commutes.
This collection of stories is frustrating and entertains. Frustrating in that it brings you to a certain point... And stops. The introduction is a clue: and then, what happened? You supply your own continuation of the theme. Very different concept in storytelling.
Lincoln Rhyme, Amelia Sacks, and crew have their hands full in this story of a criminal who uses data as a weapon to collect whatever catches his eye. It is the classic story of two brilliant minds declaring war on each other. It kept me listening late into the night, just to see what was coming next.
Another great Addition to the Lincoln Rhyme series. You never quite know who is the real bad guy and who is the hero. Lincoln has met an intelligent, meticulous adversary who gives him a run for his money. This is a real nail-biter.
My grandfather died of ALS. I wish he had Susan's attitude! Her no-nonsense battle to leave her children and husband with a sense of who she was, and what was important are inspirational. This is not a "read in one sitting" book, it can get heavy in parts. But there is a lot of joy, introspection, and some practical tips along the way. Susan examines and evaluates her priorities as her bady starts failing her, and lists the concessions she had to make along the way to meet her goals and fulfill her bucket list. I will probably liswten to this at least once more, to glean some tips.
Don't toss traditions
When the heroine and her nemesis realize their childhood experiences caused them both to reject their peoples' traditional values, and to rethink those decisions. The realization that life is not black or white, but many shades of gray.
Just do it!
The Dalai Lama's book on happiness. It was a religious experience for both authors. :)
Her candidness. What worked and didn't work for her, that failures were ok, but don't give up.
Be all you can be - happily
I would, and I have. I quote it alot (Like with Like and Everything in it's Place). Even if it is only in my head. I have cut the size of my email inbox by 2/3 already and am still on a roll. After a wildfire destroyed most of my neighborhood this summer, I became aware (almost to the point of obsession) that I need to be more organized, especially in my office, and have a "to go" box of papers ready for whatever is next. When you have 30 minutes or less to figure out what to take, having the box packed already would be a small comfort.
It seems do-able for the average messy, unorganized person. It made my think about my kitchen storage spaces in a different light, too.
Defnitely not. One chapter a day (there was homework) was about all I could handle. Sometimes I listened to one chapter several times, as a refresher/reminder to keep me on track. I did go to the website and download all the lists at once, however.
Yes, I like James Marsters' delivery of the sarcasm and irony that is Dresden. I have a 90 minute commute to and from work, so these novels help alot.
Mister - he's a great judge of character.
Yes. This performace was up to par with the others I've heard
This book made me both laugh and cry. Not at the same chapter, though.
