    (51)

    By the time Henry Kissinger was made secretary of state in 1973, he had become, according to a Gallup poll, the most admired person in America and one of the most unlikely celebrities ever to capture the world’s imagination. Yet Kissinger was also reviled by large segments of the American public, ranging from liberal intellectuals to conservative activists. Kissinger explores the relationship between this complex man's personality and the foreign policy he pursued.

    Maya A. says: "Thorough, well-researched and interesting bio."
    "Tedious"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who is interested in every minute detail of kissingers life. But who knows how much is true. Kissinger did not authorize this book.


    Would you recommend Kissinger to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. Too long and tedious.


    What three words best describe Malcolm Hillgartner’s voice?

    Great voice....kept me interested until I just just couldn't listen anymore.


    What character would you cut from Kissinger?

    Haig....maybe.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately I didn't know before I bought this book that Kissinger was not endorse its writing.

  • Odd Thomas

    Story
    (2101)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "Odd says it all"

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or David Aaron Baker?

    Probably not.


    What could Dean Koontz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There seems to be no good storyline...it just drones on with Odd Thomas' thoughts. Boring.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Aaron Baker’s performances?

    Maybe....not sure.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Odd Thomas?

    I'd start over, make Odd Thomas more interesting, maybe a little humorous.
