  • Fantasy Life: The Outrageous, Uplifting, and Heartbreaking World of Fantasy Sports from the Guy Who's Lived It

    In Fantasy Life, Berry celebrates every aspect of the fantasy sports world. Brilliant trash talk. Unbelievable trophies. Insane draft day locations. Shake-your-head-in-disbelief punishments. Ingenious attempts at cheating. And surprisingly uplifting stories that remind us why we play these games in the first place.

    What did you love best about Fantasy Life?

    Too many stories about leagues, I don't need to know all the many ways a team creates trophies or punish the loser, however the personal story of the author was great. I really enjoyed his life.

    After barely escaping the Mission alive, Gene and Sissy face an impossible task: staying alive long enough to stop an entire world bent on their destruction. Bound on a train heading into the unknown with the surviving Mission girls, Gene, Sissy, David, and Epap must stick together and use everything they have to protect each other and their only hope: the cure that will turn the bloodthirsty creatures around them into humans again.

    Would you listen to The Trap again? Why?

    Yes. Now that I know the ending, I want to go back and relisten. I am sure I will pick up new details.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Trap?

    the last sentence of the last book... DID NOT SEE THAT COMING.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    his voice inflection was spot on.


    Any additional comments?

    Andrew Fukuda is a genius. I rate a good book based on how it affects me after I finish. This story has been in my dreams, and I can't stop thinking about the characters and the story. I wish there was a 4th book.

    Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

    Would you listen to Killing Jesus again? Why?

    No. Once is enough.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not from a religious perspective. Dugard and O'reilly do a good job of staying secular which leads to the credibility of the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the Passion.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope killing MLK is next. Bill has a niche.

    In this debut, Carton invites the listener to join him as he recounts tales from his suburban youth, defends his long-held love affair with the New York Jets, reminisces about the shenanigans of some of the highest paid and most celebrated athletes playing today, and reflects on his work as one of radio's craftiest, most hilarious personalities ever to get behind the microphone.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "WOW! Makes you realize how fortunate we are!"
    Overall

    I want to write something to emphasize how powerful this story is, but can only come up with... unbelievable! The determination to live and the power of forgiveness = powerful.

  • American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    Susan says: "Lots of things you didn't know but should"
    "Interesting but not balanced..."
    Overall

    Makes a non left or right topic to political. Too much bashing of the right (which is deserving at times) and many excuses for the left. These facts made me wonder if there is a conspiracy by the author to put too much blame on the right... Without this obvious bias, great book that WILL make you think...

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    Story
    (4637)

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    S Prabhu says: "Excellent book; well adapted for the audio format"
    "HARD WORK COUNTS TOO"
    Overall

    Great book. Reminds me of a song titled “things that make you go umm.” My only criticism: the author places too much emphasis on opportunity and not enough on the subjects taking advantage of this opportunity through hard work. The author makes a blanket conclusion that Bill Gates was the only teen to have the opportunity to program computers all the time and thus had an opportunity like no other. Well how does the author know this? Could there have been other teens with a similar opportunity but were lazy and unwilling to work as hard as Mr. Gates? To me the secret is opportunity (which sometimes you can’t control) + hard work (which you can control). Fun book. I can’t wait to read the others written by this author.
