    The dazzling, inimitable Molly Ivins is back with a new collection of withering and hilarious pieces on the worst politics has to offer. This audiobook features a rogue's gallery of politicians: everyone from George W. Bush and the Democratic presidential contenders to Arnold Schwarzenegger. This career retrospective contains Ivins's funniest, most outrageous (and outraged) work on "the best of the worst", in a volume sure to delight those on the left and infuriate the right.

    Renee says: "Amusing and thought-provoking"

    Overall

    Molly Ivins is a thrill to listen to, she's a great reader and a better writer. It was entertaining and truthful. I've almost finished it, but have to complain about the selection of articles: I can't remember the last time I've waded through so many obituaries! Yes, she uses them to both celebrate the passing of people she is proud to have known and as a jumping-off point to bring up an issue, but it gets pretty repetitive listening to ANOTHER obituary and ANOTHER one and ANOTHER one and >JESUSMAKEITSTOP!< ANOTHER obituary! I'm worn out from all the dead people!

    Still a great listen, I'll go looking for Bushwhacked, next.

    Story

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not history, not theology, just great fiction"
    "Great Yarn, Dump The Narrator"
    Overall

    Don't look for deep characters in this thrilling yarn, but do look for an exciting story. If you can get used to the breathy, heaving, melodramatic narrator (Richard Poe), which took me about an hour to do, then you'll be rewarded with an intensely researched, exciting story. The story gets 4-stars, the narrator gets 2-stars.
