  • The Third Policeman

    Flann O'Brien's most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder.

    Weird, satirical, and very funny, its popularity has suddenly increased with the mention of the novel in the TV series Lost.

    Amazon Customer says: "Narrator extradinaire"
    "Awful!!!!"
    Overall

    I listened to the entire story hoping it would get better, but it never did. There was no point to the story. Don't waste your time.

    Overall

    This is not a book on how to ace a job interview. There are few, if any hints on what to do/what not to do. There are no insights on how to answer questions. Instead the majority of the book is taken up with some kind of visualisation exercise in which you're supposed to visualise yourself "becoming confident".

  • Indecision: A Novel

    Story

    Benjamin Kunkel's brilliantly comic debut novel concerns one of the central maladies of our time: a pathological indecision that turns abundance into an affliction and opportunity into a curse. Dwight B. Wilmerding is only 28, but he's having a midlife crisis. Of course, living a dissolute, dormlike existence in a tiny apartment and working in tech support at the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer are not especially conducive to wisdom.

    Gerard says: "well it leads you to think its good"
    "Indecision, decisively terrible"
    Overall

    I don't normally write reviews, but I felt compelled in this case so that you do not suffer the same plight as me in listening to this book.

    The book is about a guy who is chronically indecisive. This could be a great premise for a comedy, but instead the book turns into a preachy book about "democratic socialism". The book says that if you are involved in a corporation then you are responsible for poverty in third world countries and that you should go over there and help them.

    I do not get audiobooks to be preached at, I get them to be entertained, and this book was not entertaining.
