  • Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture

    Story
    (359)

    From a young age, Andy Cohen knew two things: He was gay, and he loved television. Now presiding over Bravo's reality-TV empire, he started out as an overly talkative pop-culture obsessive, devoted to Charlie's Angels and All My Children - and to his mother, who received daily letters from him while he was at summer camp, usually reminding her to tape the soaps. In retrospect, it's hard to believe that everyone didn't know that Andy was gay; still, he remained in the closet until college. Finally out, he embarked on making a career out of his passion for television.

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    Would you try another book from Jenny Lawson and/or Jenny Lawson?

    Highly unlikely


    What could Jenny Lawson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It just rambled on and on and on and she was trying too hard to be funny. Not funny at all. will be returning.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Let's Pretend This Never Happened (A Mostly True Memoir)?

    the "hey i did drugs" part - thats not funny.

    Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

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

    just not a great storyline


    What was most disappointing about Carl Hiaasen’s story?

    i couldnt follow the story. the names all blended together and it wasnt as easy to listen to as his other books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of George Wilson?

    hes a good narrator. just didnt like the book

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was great and it didnt feel rushed like other books do


    What did you like best about this story?

    the twists you are not expecting. the end got really exciting


    What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

    The characters seemed so sincere and the inflections in their voices were spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I actually want to listen to it again because I might have missed some details. very well crafted book. I never want to listen to an audiobook twice!!


    Any additional comments?
