    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "I can't describe how much this book anoyed me."
    Overall

    I really tried but this book is loaded with information you will never use and need to know. Very boring. It's more like a dictionary of world/British scientits, their inventions or gossip about them.

    Raised in near seclusion by an agoraphobic mother, Davy Cooper's social skills are almost nonexistent. Now that his mother has died, he needs to make friends for the first time in his life. He catches Gavin Walker's eye, but the sexy, confident, bad boy hipster intimidates shy Davy so much that he throws away Gavin's number every time he offers it. When Gavin defends Davy from a rude guy, Davy begins to warm to him.

    Would you try another book from Kade Boehme and/or Sean Lenhart?

    First and last book from Kade Boehme. Sean Lenhart speaks like he's running out of time.


    Has Trouble & the Wallflower turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I won't be looking for books he narrated.


    What character would you cut from Trouble & the Wallflower?

    All of them. Even the wallflower who should have been the most interesting character, had no depth at all.

    Sean Bielecki has built a new life, leaving an infamous identity and painful past behind. Now Sommelier Wines is Sean’s dream. And after taking in Bobby, a homeless teenager who was attacked in the alley behind his store, parental instincts wake in him that he didn’t know he had, giving him new courage and direction. Officer Sam Davis has been watching Sean for a while—not because of his past—but because Sam wants to be a part of his life now.

    Keith says: "Andrew Grey has done it again!"
    "Irritating flawed story!"

    Repetitive grade 1 descriptions. Adopting a smart teenager who makes drawings of his new family. Yeah ok! Forced myself to finish this garbage.


    Has Bottled Up turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, I was not expecting poorly written sex scenes! "So hot, so warm, so deep"


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was the only thing good about this book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bottled Up?

    sex scenes!

    From award-winning New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice comes an evocative psychological thriller about a woman who must try to save her brother’s reputation and life when he is accused of being involved in a terrorist act.

    Artur says: "Over-analyzed characters and their actions."
    "Over-analyzed characters and their actions."
    Overall

    After reading "Density of Souls", I hoped this book would be just as good but I hated this one.

    No personality and ridiculously over-analyzed characters and their actions. Forced myself to keep listening with hope but I only made it to chapter 7.
    Cassandra Campbell reads this book with without any vocal changes. She sounds like shes reading at a funeral.
    I feel the credit used was a waste.

    In his tantalizing debut novel, Paradise Salvage, at once a taut thriller and a lyrical coming-of-age story, John Fusco marvelously traces the unforgettable trajectory of 12-year-old Nunzio Paradiso's last summer of innocence.

    Pamela says: "Who thought junk could be so endearing?!"
    "I think I judeged this book by it's cover :("
    Overall

    I don't blame Brian Emerson for this audible book that I could not get through. I blame the writer.
    The writer writes the book from a teenagers point of view but every action and thought is analyzed to death. This book is like listening to a boring Italian professor talking about his childhood.

    It bores me to death, especially when the story painfully develops into a mystery.

    The only reason why I got to chapter 11 is because I paid for it.

  • End the Fed

    Story
    (153)

    Over 4,000 students gathered at the University of Michigan to hear Republican Party candidate Ron Paul speak. As he began to address the topics of monetary policy and the coming depression, a chant rose from the crowd, "End the Fed! End the Fed!" As dollar bills were lit on fire and thrown into the night skies, it became clear that the real problem, one that nobody in the media was talking about, was the central bank-an unconstitutional entity and a political, economic, and moral disaster.

    Jonnie says: "Very clear and understandable"
    "Ron Paul has his facts right."
    Overall

    I have a lot of respect for Ron Paul but I have to be honest, this book was not easy to get through. Lots of information repeats itself through the book and I don't understand why this narrator was picked for the book. I like his voice but he is way to soft spoken. His voice puts me to sleep.

    yawn.....zzzzzz zzzz zz

    "Economic hit men," John Perkins writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder."

    Robert P. says: "Excellent Story for people have traveled"
    "Corporatocracy Exposed. Ignorance is not freedom."
    Overall

    I have stopped watching all media owned by the big 5 corporations a few years ago. Adventure and a bleak peak behind the curtain exposed. I listened to this book every night. Brain Emerson does not put you to sleep.
