    When Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bill Dedman noticed in 2009 a grand home for sale, unoccupied for nearly 60 years, he stumbled through a surprising portal into American history. Empty Mansions is a rich mystery of wealth and loss, connecting the Gilded Age opulence of the 19th century with a 21st-century battle over a $300 million inheritance. At its heart is a reclusive heiress named Huguette Clark, a woman so secretive that, at the time of her death at age 104, no new photograph of her had been seen in decades.

    Novotny says: "I still don't know much about Huguette Clark"
    "Great!"

    Would you listen to Empty Mansions again? Why?

    Getting to hear the actual conversations was great! However, it could've been a bit shorter.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Folks who want a typical "Sex in the City" type book.


    What was most disappointing about Alice Clayton’s story?

    There wasn't a single plot twist I didn't see a mile away. And I listen to books while I'm doing household chores, so I am not paying much attention, most of the time.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Smith’s performances?

    I might be, depending on other's reviews and ratings.


    What character would you cut from Wallbanger?

    Mimi

    For fans of Tina Fey and David Sedaris - Internet star Jenny Lawson, aka The Bloggess, makes her literary debut. Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives - the ones we'd like to pretend never happened - are in fact the ones that define us. In Let's Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor.

    D. S. Smith says: "How the Bloggess almost made me crash my car!"
    "Funniest memoir, ever!"

    I dare you to come up with a memoir funnier than Jenny Lawson's. Go on, try naming one.

    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    Michael says: "New to Neil"
    "How is this "horror" in any way?"

    Would you try another book from Neil Gaiman and/or the narrators?

    Yes. But the review says it's scary and I got through 7 hours of convoluted characters without caring what happens to them. This is suppose to be his best book. I would give him one more try. I liked the short story he wrote for Halloween, this year.


    Has American Gods: The Tenth Anniversary Edition (A Full Cast Production) turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    yes.


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

    DISAPPOINTMENT!


    Any additional comments?

    this book sucked. sorry, but it did.
