    Yale psychologist Paul Bloom presents a striking new vision of the pleasures of everyday life. The thought of sex with a virgin is intensely arousing for many men. The average American spends over four hours a day watching television. Abstract art can sell for millions of dollars. Young children enjoy playing with imaginary friends and can be comforted by security blankets. People slow their cars to look at gory accidents, and go to movies that make them cry.

    Robert says: "Easy to understand, well read."
    "So, so repetetive"

    Story
    (4413)

    All is not well in Margrave, Georgia. The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road.

    What disappointed you about Killing Floor?

    I was really looking forward to starting the Reacher series, so I started book 1.Dick Hill did a fine job of narrating, unfortunately, what he had to work with was drivel.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    I am so put off (ANNOYED) when people end their sentence by saying the word "REALLY?!" as if they mean something by it, other than asking me something.Well, Mr. Child used "REALLY?!" to end the sentences of his characters, oh, about 600 times throughout the 15+ hours of the story. People, I am not exaggerating! Every 3 to 4 sentences that came up. It completely ruined the story, and series for me.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Joe, the dead brother, he never once said, "REALLY?!"


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Killing Floor?

    I would have cut A LOT OF THOSE "REALLY?!" s out of the story!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Dick Hill did his best with what he had to work with.As always.
