    Five local business men in Dover, New Hampshire, belong to a club called The Snowshoe Club. At a club meeting, these five men decide that they want girlfriends they can have sex with. One among their number, Elliot, the one in charge of getting things done, suggests that they might get one girlfriend and share her among the five of them. They agree that such a scheme would be a practical idea. They dispatch Elliot, who finds a college girl and commandeers her to their purposes.

    What made the experience of listening to Plunder the most enjoyable?

    The narrators voices were great for the parts. The male narrator (also the author) sounded older as the character was and was really believeble- ie his voice fitted. I enjoyed some of the authors view points of female and male sexuality. It was sexy and challenging but also respectful of a womens viewpoint. The story kept me riverted from start to finish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Plunder?

    There were a few parts that defintiely captured the imagination however I wouldnt like to say what the more memorable bits were :)

    Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History.

    I can't say the earth moved however it was a nice engaging story with frequent excitement and good humor. A Likeable heroine I will definitely be going onto the next.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    In this searing, unflinchingly honest book, Portia de Rossi captures the complex emotional truth of what it is like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action. She recounts the elaborate rituals around eating that came to dominate hours of every day, from keeping her daily calorie intake below 300 to eating precisely measured amounts of food out of specific bowls and only with certain utensils. When this wasn’t enough, she resorted to purging and compulsive physical exercise, driving her body and spirit to the breaking point.

    Thanks portia for your honesty. Eating disorders are so evil and they strike the most dedicated conscientious and intelligent amongst us. This book allows us to see into the heart of the eating disorder into its insanity. recommend it!
