    Is a fetus a person? Is “pro-choice” a neutral position? For 40 years since the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the abortion debate has been highly charged and politicized. Questions like these have become the common language of the public dialogue on this issue. In Compelling Interest, Roger Resler draws on original sources, including the actual transcripts, the majority and minority opinions, and comments by the lawyers and others involved to take a careful look at the real story.

    Would you try another book from Roger Resler and/or Roger Resler?

    Never.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something actually entertaining


    What didn’t you like about Roger Resler’s performance?

    He is incredibly sanctimonious. Also, the addition of numerous adolescent voices is both annoying and attempting to illicit an emotional response from the audience. It is yet more one more way in which this book shows its bias and downright mean-ness.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Intense remorse for wasting a credit.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is sold as an unbiased account of abortion litigation. IT IS NOT. It is a pro-life screed. Essentially, do not listen to this unless you have already made up your mind about this issue.

    Two childhood friends from Scotland and two illegitimate half-brothers from the deep South suffer and enjoy all manner of bizarre adventures that, it turns out, are somehow interconnected and, even more surprisingly, meaningful. The eclectic cast of characters features Socrates, Carl Jung, and Tony Randall, along with an ex-television evangelist with a penchant for booze, prostitutes, and uncomfortable knitwear who gets mugged in Miami by an almost pure-blooded Watusi warrior - and sets off on a road trip in a stolen motor home.

    C. Ubik says: "Crass, hilarious, and surprisingly touching"
    "No cohesive story line!"

    What disappointed you about Between the Bridge and the River?

    There was no cohesive story line between the characters-after their teens they never meet and rarely think of each other-no impact on each other's lives. I love Craig Ferguson as a narrator and there are definitely funny bits, but the funny bits rarely have any (ANY) impact on the overarching story line (probably because it doesn't exist).

    The death of a TV reporter from a single bullet wound to the heart is a dramatic news story, and also an unsolved crime. But the twist in the tale is that this time it's the man who fired the bullet who's asking all the questions. Michael Watson wants to know how come the police were on his tail so quickly. And who wanted the journalist permanently out of the picture? His first task is to find the writer of his pay cheque; the second is to make sure he doesn't get caught.

    Alison says: "A twist in the tale"
    "good story, horrible accents!"
    Overall

    good story, but horrible american (especially texan) accents. It's an interesting story, and worth a listen, but just don't expect much from the accents!
