    Some places are too good to be true. Under a pink moon, there is a perfect little town not found on any map. In that town, there are quiet streets lined with pretty houses, houses that conceal the strangest things. After a couple years of hard traveling, ex-cop Mona Bright inherits her long-dead mother's home in Wink, New Mexico. And the closer Mona gets to her mother's past, the more she understands that the people of Wink are very, very different....

    Repetitive. That's why it's so long.
    Not worth it.
    The story was just okay.
    There were some parts that made me stop and think. The author could write a good book someday if he learns to edit his work.

    Recruited by an advertising agency focused on targeting a new drug to her own age demographic, Sarah Striker is grateful for the steady income, but she begins to question the side effects of the products she’s pushing. Sarah begins publishing an underground zine to expose the secrets behind the pharmaceutical industry’s aims. Fulfilled by her quest to spread the truth, her new life seems to be working out perfectly - until she realizes that she herself is perilously close to becoming a victim of this new corporate world.

    Boring. Not to mention...The author is a fear merchant. Evil.He argues that drug companies want to make their customers sick so they can sell more drugs, which on some level makes sense, but in reality, is not true. I know the people who develop drugs, as a student of biochemistry (metabolism). They are my professors, classmates, mentors, and friends. They are ordinary, not cruel. They are into health, athleticism, diet, sleep, all that. They hate sickness. It is wrong to accuse them of slow murder just to make a dollar.No would go through years of intense, stressful, expensive schooling without a light at the end of the tunnel. Money and making a worthwhile contribution to the human race are the two brightest lights. Making a contribution to the human race is about healing and helping, not poisoning and harming. Making lots of money in the drug development business is like winning the lottery. It is not a path you would choose if you wanted to get rich. Marketers can be evil, as we know. But, they can only sell what the developers make.Logically, these lies do not add up. Drug companies get sued if their drugs harm people.The lawsuits can lead to bankruptcy. Also, most businesses prefer their customers alive and well, so they can make (and therefore spend) more money. However, the author is perfectly okay with meth, heroine, and coke... which is exactly what the medical society would sell if they were all about making money and getting people sick. No one would sue them then, as they'd be hooked and broke.I'm not off the deep end. Some drugs are legal that shouldn't be. I think it's stupid that doctors do not aggressively try to talk women into using copper ion IUDs rather than hormonal birth control, which causes blood clots. I strongly advocate doing your own research, checking WebMD, and talking to your pharmacist. Basically, being a mature adult. Please, don't support this nonsense.Please, do not purchase this.

    A tour-de-force novel set in ancient Japan filled with passion, fantasy, and feuding warlords. The first volume in the highly anticipated Tales of the Otori trilogy.

    Some slow parts, but worthwhile!
    Not much of this book is like hard action like the 5 minute sample.
    But, you will find everything you expect in a saga; suspense, betrayal, some simple romance. Also coming-of-age.
    It is not boring or depressing like a history lecture, although it is set in a feudal society and the characters face problems like racism, sexism, class struggle, and religious intolerance.
    You are always looking through the eyes of a character with a strong will.
    The setting and tone of the book are very distinct and artistic. Reality is re-defined to include some elements like magic-ish stuff and destiny.
    This book was a little to long, slow, and heavy for me to purchase the rest of the series right away, although I probably will eventually and might even re-listen to this one.
