    Everyone wants to escape their boring, stagnant lives full of inertia and regret. But so few people actually have the bravery to run - run away from everything and selflessly seek out personal fulfillment on the other side of the world where they don’t understand anything and won’t be expected to. The world is full of cowards. Tim Anderson was pushing 30 and working a string of dead-end jobs when he made the spontaneous decision to pack his bags and move to Japan.

    Story

    This is a homosexual's view of Japan. He makes no explanation nor expects any recriminations. He is simply teaching English to non-English speakers and learning Nipponese while doing so. I thought perhaps this might be humorous, but it wasn't.

    Whatever You Do, Don't Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top ­safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry ­elephants, and the world's most unpredictable animals: herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!

    Story

    I anticipated a entertaining romp through Africa regaled with funny stories of peoples foolish antics while trying to capture wildlife in nature. What I got was a dull story of Botswana Safari Guide being foolish and not even being entertaining in the bargain. Since he has given up guiding, sure hope he's not planning on a writing career.

  • If This Isn't Nice, What Is: Advice for the Young

    Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most in-demand commencement speakers of his time. For each occasion, Vonnegut’s words were unfailingly unique, insightful, and witty, and they stayed with audience members long after graduation. As edited by Dan Wakefield, this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers and listeners of all ages. At times hilarious, razor-sharp, freewheeling, and deeply serious, these reflections are ideal for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their "long-delayed puberty ceremony".

    If you want more of the diet of left wing "I can run your life better than you", this is it. You don't get this message until you are well into it. It's too bad such options didn't die with him.

    It's not what I'd call a compelling work; I doubt that you'll want to listen again and when you're through you will understand futillity. I found myself wondering what type of society could create such entertainment and wonder if we are indeeed headed in that direction. This book will make you think and wonder.

    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Story

    Like most liberals; King believes the world will just naturally fall in line and be good little boys and girls and the rest of us should trust them and our Government with our lives. He dosen't believe the greatest danger is from our own Government. He believes we don't need and 30 round magazines to shoot deer or home invaders and he's right. deer rarely shoot back and criminals who invade our homes usually come and go rather quickly. The gentlemen who penned the second ammendment saw a real danger from the old addage
    " Power corrupts" and the Obama administration is one of the best examples since Bill Clinton or Richard Nixon. The Government already has planes, tanks, ships and bombs. Don't take what little defense we have, Mr. King......

    Story

    I didn't mind the flashbacks, but too much time and effort went into hashing over the same information; in short beating a dead horse. He dosen't mind mind killing folks off in wholesale lots, but with very little purpose. Much gore meant to shock. Not something I would recommend or wish for more of.

    Hawthorne approached the Romantic notion of the ability of science to destroy art (or beauty) in the form of fictive "horror stories" of biological research out of control. This story is the best of that group. A devoted scientist marries a beautiful woman with a single physical flaw: a birthmark on her face. Aylmer becomes obsessed with the imperfection and his attempts to remove it via his scientific skills, thus rendering his bride perfect.

    Lewis Black uses his natural talent for hiding subtle comedy inside explosive outbursts to full effect in this new one-hour stand-up event. Compelled by his passions and his discontentedness with the absurdities of the world, he erupts in hand-shaking, body-trembling motion as he spews his signature diatribe-laced dialectic comedy.

    He has alot to rant about, from a country/western signer and wife, who are christans to getting old and very little of this was humorous. If you like listening to this guy cuss, without a point; this is your cup of tea.... I have enjoyed his performances in the past, but this one is a zero.

    In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next.

    This is a timely book and addresses most of the issues that confront us today. Though most of us would find the path these people take to be harsh and brutal; after consideration you will grow to accept it and wish for such people among us.
