    Once a Runner captures the essence of what it means to be a competitive runner; to devote your entire existence to a single-minded pursuit of excellence. It has become one of the most beloved sports novels ever written. Originally self-published in 1978 and sold at road races out of the trunk of the author's car, reading the book became a rite of passage for many runners, and tattered copies were handed down like sacred texts from generation to generation.

    I didn't run in high school or college. I felt that I was missing a whole bunch by not having been part of that culture. Need to be a life long runner from school to really enjoy this book.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Story
    (3462)

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Story

    Was looking forward to the whole series. Sadly I was put off by the first book. Just couldn't get involved in the story. Too many flashbacks and odd offshoots. Oh well. Still love Stephen King. Just not the Dark Tower Series.

    Welcome to the paperless (or "audiobook") edition of More Information Than You Require, a further compendium of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE assembled and illumined by John Hodgman, a Famous Minor Television Personality. It contains all of the half-truths, fake trivia, amazing made-up facts, and molemanic lore as the paper edition, narrated here by Resident Expert John Hodgman, occasionally interrupted by this veritable extravaganza of illustrious and sometimes presumptuous guests.

    Bobby says: "John Hodgman"
    "Way more information than anyone would require"
    Overall

    John Hodgman owes me 12 hours of my life back. Thanks to my OCD I listened to every minute of it. I will admit to getting a couple of minor giggles on Part 1 but Part 2 just spoiled everything. Sorry but he is just not funny. I enjoyed all his contributors but I don't think they listened to what they were getting themselves in to. Save your audible credits for something else!

    In Jawbreaker, Gary Berntsen, until recently one of the CIA's most decorated officers, comes out from under cover for the first time to describe his no-holds-barred pursuit of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda.

    Joshua says: "A great read (err - Listen)"
    "Deleted"
    Overall

    Couldn't get comfortable with this book from the start. The "deleted" and "section deleted" parts start from the beginning and just never stop. It left me feeling like I was missing something throughout. Too annoying to even finish the book. Really disappointed. Too bad because I would imagine it was a pretty good story. If you want all your book without interruption I would recommend skipping this one.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    Old Hippy says: "Absolutely Terrific!"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    This was my first Stuart Woods book and will not be my last. I really enjoyed the story. Good little mystery.
