    The prolific, perennially best selling author recounts his early life and writing struggles, gives advice on the crucial aspects of the writing art, and talks about his much-publicized, near-fatal accident.

    Overall

    Easy to read, part memoir part writer's manual. Honest information from a man who understands what the public wants. You will finish this book knowing more about why we read and why we write.

    From the author of the phenomenally successful, New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mystery series, comes this spellbinding collection of African folktales from Zimbabwe and Botswana.

    Overall

    If you are an Alexander McCall Smith fan don't expect THE GIRL WHO MARRIED A LION... to be written in the same vein. This is a collection of stories told TO Mr. Smith by African natives. These simplistic stories illustrate basic values. The characters are sometimes animals with human traits or people with animal instincts. Given this, the work is an interesting collection of stories that give insight into both the African storytelling tradition and the origins of Mr. Smith's writing style. The tales are strong on morals and character and weak on plot line and scene development.

  • Looking for Alaska

    Looking for Alaska is Peter's account of eighteen months spent traveling over twenty thousand miles in tiny bush planes, on snow machines and snowshoes, in fishing boats and kayaks, on the Alaska Marine Highway and the Haul Road. Hearing and living the amazing stories of many Alaskans from Barrow to Craig, Seward to Deering, and everywhere in between, Peter gets to know this place in a way that only he can.

    KPS says: "good yarn, poor delivery"
    "A Nice Piece of Creative Nonfiction"
    Overall

    Having read Mr. Jenkin's A WALK ACROSS AMERICA years ago, I was interested to try LOOKING FOR ALASKA. His style hasn't changed. LOOKING FOR ALASKA is an easy listen about a raw and breath-taking land. I found the brief audio inserts from his interviews captivating and flavorful. This work is less polished than, say, Bill Bryson's IN A SUNBURNED COUNTRY or A WALK IN THE WOODS but his observations are insightful and honest. His tendency to drift into family storytelling is usually endearing and provides insight as to the origins of his perspective.

  • The Memory of Running

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "One of the Best"
    Overall

    Well developed characters, intriguing plot line, a book you will think about long after listening. One of my favorites. From the heart.
