    Too much variety in the stories... but maybe that is good? It depend of what kind of story that you like. So be brave and try this book.

    The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

    A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question....

    Dr. says: "Slow, Strange, and (ultimately) Satisfying"
    "The human mind is a maze"

    The little people got me to read further but why I dont know. Its odd. The novel made me think of old forgotten feelings and childhood. A rather original book. Please read it and be transformed.

    Early one morning in the summer of 1999, authorities in the tiny West Texas town of Tulia began a roundup of suspected drug dealers. By the time the sweep was done, over 40 people had been arrested and one of every five black adults in town was behind bars, all accused of dealing cocaine to the same undercover officer, Tom Coleman.

    JOHN says: "A Must Read"
    "The Tulia story has to many boring details."

    Really important story, but to many boring details. Don't send you time there or on the book.

    At age 26, broke and knee-deep in gambling debt, Ed Ugel serendipitously landed a job as a salesman for The Firm, a company that offered up-front cash to lottery winners in exchange for their gradually doled-out prize money. Ed made a lucrative living by taking advantage of lottery winners' weaknesses - weaknesses he knew all too well.

    A fine inside view in a world that not many people see. It's fine to hear the author thorts on hees one work and the people that win. A story of sorrow and joy. Just as I like it.

    A tale of paranoid fantasies and crippling doubts, of shady lawyers and dangerous cult leaders, of billionaire gun nuts and survivalist superheroes, of weirdos, heroes, and ordinary citizens going off the grid. It's one man's story of a dangerous world - and how to stay alive in it. Before the next disaster strikes, you're going to want to read this book. And you'll want to do everything it suggests. Because tomorrow doesn't come with a guarantee....

    I don't like the "this is it" thinking, that he presents. There are other ways as well. 4 hrs and 58 mins. do not fix you life or situation.

    That i like about the book is that it can inspire you to do new good thinks and thinking.

    According to The Waiter, 80 percent of customers are nice people just looking for something to eat. The remaining 20 percent, however, are socially maladjusted psychopaths.

    Waiter Rant offers the server's unique point of view, replete with tales of customer stupidity, arrogant misbehavior, and unseen bits of human grace transpiring in the most unlikely places.

    Coming from Denmark, Scandinavia, Europe I find the book informative, entertaining and well told. American culture seen from a certain personal and funny viewpoint. Lots of insights worth knowing before visiting the US.

    America is a barren landscape of smoldering ashes, devoid of life except for those people still struggling to scratch out some type of existence. Amidst this destruction, a father and his young son walk, always toward the coast, but with no real understanding that circumstances will improve once they arrive. Still, they persevere, and their relationship comes to represent goodness in a world of utter devastation.
