    Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century, 1951, in the middle of the United States, Des Moines, Iowa, in the middle of the largest generation in American history, the baby boomers. As one of the best and funniest writers alive, his is perfectly positioned to mine his memories of a totally all-American childhood for 24-carat memoir gold. Like millions of his generational peers, Bill Bryson grew up with a rich fantasy life as a superhero.

    David says: "Fun, but not for squeamish"
    "Great read"
    Overall

    Despite a lot of hyperbole, Bryson again delivers a great read! His description of his life in the 50's and 60's in middle America is a delight.

  • No Turning Back: Kathleen Turner, Book 1

    It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood. Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I really don't like the heroine in this story. Author describes her as a cop's daughter, but she makes the weirdest choices, and falls for her handsome boss-- but also likes his brother! Nothing gets resolved here. Author seems to be trying to follow in the line of Janet Evanovich books -- but doesn't quite make it

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of Racing in the Rain the most enjoyable?

    This was a great listen. Once you allow that your listening to the dog narrator, it's a delight! And I think men will love all the racing metaphors!
