    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    I don't know what I expected when I purchased this book based on the reviews but it was great. I immediately turned to my wife and said you need to read this book.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    Story
    (6851)

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    You just have to listen to understand...it's out of the norm and very enjoyable. Good listening.

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Star Wars films), fresh off the success of his uproarious, Audie-nominated performance of the mock children’s book Go the F**k to Sleep, delivers a swaggering, darkly-humored rendering of Chester Himes’ classic first novel.

    Rebecca Roztocil says: "Excellent Reading!"
    "Enjoyable but the narration got in the way"

    Story

    I generally love Samuel L. Jackson as a narrator but for some reason I found this performance to be below par and a bit unclear in spots. The material was good and I'd still recommend the book.

    Simply pre-order Locked On now and you’ll get to hear the book’s first three chapters before anyone else. And when the complete book - which is more than 20 hours long - releases on December 13, it'll be waiting for you in My Library.

    Nothing special here yet but I still have hopes for more as the story progresses.

  • Earth (The Audiobook) Free Chapter

    Story

    The eagerly awaited new audiobook from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart - the man behind the megaseller America (The Book). Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race.

    John says: "Stick to TV"
    "Loses steam in audio"
    Overall

    It's entertaining but this title loses something significant in translation to audio. I've borrowed the book and it clearly is superior to the audio version.
