    Lake Wobegon is in a frenzy of preparations for the Fourth of July. The town is dizzy with anticipation - until they hear of Clint's ambition to run for Congress. They know about his episodes with vodka sours, his rocky marriage, and his friendship with the 24-year-old who dresses up as the Statue of Liberty for the parade and may be buck naked beneath her robes. In Keillor's words, "It is Lake Wobegon as you imagined it - good loving people who drive each other crazy."

    Christopher says: "Great for a long country drive."

    I had a hard time sticking with this book. It was all just a bunch of meaningless tidbits that didn't culminate into much. I didn't care about the characters or the story.

    The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them all they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it - from garden seeds to Scripture - is calamitously transformed on African soil.

    "a fun and interesting book"
    Overall

    My daughter and I just came back from a mission trip in Uganda. I can totally relate to the author's portrayal of the Africans and love hearing about the culture from the different family member's perspectives. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who is interested in other cultures and likes down to earth, sarcastic, funny writing.

    I agree that it was hard to follow the transition from one character to another. But, it didn't ruin the story for me. I thought the narrator had a nice reading voice and I enjoyed listening. I've listened to about 100 audio books and this one has been added to my favorites list.

    My favorites also include Infidel, Ladies #1 Detective Agency series, Sarah's Key, Pillars of the Earth, World Without End, Laughing Without An Accent and the sequel, Freddy and Fredericka, etc. I love these books.

    Story

    This New York Times best-seller is the astonishing life story of award-winning humanitarian Ayaan Hirsi Ali. A deeply respected advocate for free speech and women's rights, Hirsi Ali also lives under armed protection because of her outspoken criticism of the Islamic faith in which she was raised.

    Teddy says: "A Story that Needed to be Told"
    "I loved this book"
    Overall

    I usually don't write reviews but this one was a winner. Ayaan's story is riveting and heartfelt. I was just in Africa and saw the poverty and oppression that she described. I can't imagine living or tolerating the way she was raised and admire her strength to have risen above it all. This is a must read.

    Story
    (128)

    In this frank and funny memoir, the Tony Award-winning star of stage and screen shares her journey from small-town Oklahoma to big-time Broadway, vamping on what it takes to stand firmly on a foundation of family and faith while wearing a hot pair of Jimmy Choo platform sling-backs.

    Holly says: "Salt of the Earth + Sparkles"
    "Down to earth reading"
    Overall

    This was great easy listening. Kristin is fun and interesting, spawning just enough sarcasm to keep her grounded. Her writing reminds me of Tori Spelling's books. Just fun.
