  • Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!

    With his characteristic eyebrow-raising behavior, Richard P. Feynman once provoked the wife of a Princeton dean to remark, "Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman!" But the many scientific and personal achievements of this Nobel Prize-winning physicist are no laughing matter. Here, woven with his scintillating views on modern science, Feynman relates the defining moments of his accomplished life.

    Steven Petersen says: "My favorite audio book"
    "Funny and extremely interesting"
    Overall

    A fantastic insight into post-war weapons race and the science after Einstein. Feynman is a very interesting person, and not scared of revealing intimate things about himself.

  • Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

    David Foster Wallace made an art of taking readers into places no other writer even gets near. In his exuberantly acclaimed collection, Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, he combines hilarity and an escalating disquiet in stories that astonish, entertain, and expand our ideas of the pleasures that fiction can afford.

    Mark says: "This is ABRIDGED"
    "Pretentious"
    Overall

    Awfully long and pretentious "story" between the interviews. And the interviews themselves are just stupid. Are they supposed to be real? They sound made up.

    As he did so masterfully in The Jungle, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Upton Sinclair interweaves social criticism with human tragedy to create an unforgettable portrait of Southern California's early oil industry. Enraged by the oil scandals of the Harding administration in the 1920s, Sinclair tells a gripping tale of avarice, corruption, and class warfare, featuring a cavalcade of characters, including senators, oil magnates, Hollywood film starlets, and a crusading evangelist.

    Gregory says: "an outstanding book"
    "Good but too long"
    Overall

    Greatly interesting depiction of the mechanisms behind early oil industry. But the second half of the book was too long. The Jungle by the same author is far better.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    "Allright"
    Overall

    It's allright, but the characters lack depth. Worth a read if you love zombies and apocalypses.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    It's allright, but the characters lack depth. Worth a read if you love zombies and apocalypses.
