    Jon Ronson is fascinated by madness, extraordinary behaviour and the human mind. He has spent his life investigating crazy events, following fascinating people and unearthing unusual stories. Collected here from various sources (including the Guardian and GQ America) are the best of his adventures.

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

    If you want to enjoy a book of disjointed stories then this is the book for you.

    What about Jon Ronson’s performance did you like?

    Quality accent and dry sense of humor.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book was like This American Life, but not done nearly as well.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "not all you might think"
    Overall

    As others have already stated this book is quite slow at first and made me wish for C.S. Lewis. However, it does pick up transforming into a great mystery. 4 stars might be more than i should give due to the begging and the sadomasochism towards the end of the book. I would be embarrassed to recommend this book to many of my friends due to the amount of sadomasochism contained within the book.
