    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

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

    I was under the impression that this was history and not o'Reilly's biased and incomplete version of the past.


    What was most disappointing about Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard ’s story?

    Too much focus on Kennedy's sex life


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bill O'Reilly’s performances?

    No


    What character would you cut from Killing Kennedy?

    O'Reilly


    Any additional comments?

    In addition to the above, important facts were left out, for example, the fact that we almost went to war with Russia over the bay of pigs invasion.

    We last saw Easy in 2007’s Blonde Faith, fighting for his life after his car plunges over a cliff. True to form, the tough WWII veteran survives, and soon his murderous sidekick Mouse has him back cruising the mean streets of L.A., in all their psychedelic 1967 glory, to look for a young black man, Evander "Little Green" Noon, who disappeared during an acid trip. Fueled by an elixir called Gator’s Blood, brewed by the conjure woman Mama Jo, Easy experiences a physical, spiritual, and emotional resurrection, but peace and love soon give way to murder and mayhem.

    Phillip says: "Resurrection is painful but Easy is no Zombie!"
    "Incredibly repetive and boring"

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

    More of a plot and less ranting on race over and over. Most of us from the 60s have grown up and gone beyond this.


    Has Little Green turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not to other books in genre but to Mosley's future books


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    narrator did an ok job


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none

    FBI agent Rachel Walling finally gets the call she's dreaded for years: the one that tells her the Poet has returned. Years ago she worked on the famous case, tracking down the serial killer who wove lines of poetry into his hideous crimes. Rachel has never forgotten Robert Backus, the killer who called himself the Poet, and apparently he has not forgotten her either.

    Jon says: "Bosch again"
    "More disappointing than some others of Connelly's."

    What did you like best about The Narrows: Harry Bosch Series, Book 10? What did you like least?

    Connelly's description of the most banal in order to make an otherwise short story long was very disappointing.
