    Ross Douthat, the youngest-ever op-ed columnist for the New York Times, has emerged as one of the most provocative and influential voices of his generation. Now he offers a masterful and hard-hitting account of how American Christianity has gone off the rails - and why it threatens to take American society with it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bad Religion to be better than the print version?

    yes, this is the same reader who read the coming of the third reich. I liked that his voice gave legitimacy to the idea that the new religion is poison.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I appreciated that the positive thinking nonsense has been outed as more religion of the blamed. "Suffering is your own fault"

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des RĂªves, and it is only open at night.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The idea that you can create an amazing child by abusing him just hits me wrong. THe reader was greate but really raising kids with crazy rules and not much love and showing these kids as being fairly normal while all this is going loses its beleivability. Both of these would have offed their care takers, become prostitutes or burgalers. Really you think you abuse a child and they'll keep following your requests. THe truth of characters was non existent. It was a combination of a bad rayberry and a poor harry potter. At least in harry potter the kids reacted to what was happening like a kid would. These are robot kids. I wonder if the author has kids. Doubt it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Erin Morgenstern? Why or why not?

    No


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    absolutely


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    really future authors, make you people act like real people. Look at interview with a vampire, real person.

  • A Wolf at the Table: A Memoir of My Father

    A Wolf at the Table is the story of Augusten's relationship with his father, John Robison, Sr., a man only briefly touched upon in Running With Scissors. Told with shocking honesty and penetrating insight, A Wolf at the Table is more than the companion volume to Running with Scissors - it's a story of stunning psychological cruelty and the redemptive power of hope.

    James Gordon says: "Embarrassingly Bad"
    "terrible"
    Overall

    wolf at the table sounds false. not funny.
