  • Lake Wobegon Summer 1956

    Story
    (16)

    Fourteen-year-old Gary, a self-described "tree toad" (lover of a perfect lawn, the soft-porn masterpiece of Carnal Cuties, his Underwood typewriter, and, above all, his rebellious cousin Kate), lives through one amazing Lake Wobegon summer. Gary preoccupies himself by spinning fantastic yarns about boogers, talking dogs, conversations between God and Jesus, and especially melodramas featuring himself as hero and Kate as distresseddamsel.

    Story

    Seems to be preoccupied, as a teenager would be, with the excessive sexual urges and innuendos the descriptiveness of which takes away from the plot. I have enjoyed Garrison's work on both the radio and in books, but would turn on the parental controls for this one. Many of the backgrounds are common to his work and a walk down memory lane for the targeted age group.

    Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious look at American government.

    Thought provoking perspective that highlights how far we have come from how far the founding fathers have come.

    Will be interesting to see the update of this in 25 years.

  • I Am America (And So Can You!)

    What The Daily Show is to evening news, The Colbert Report is to personality-driven pundit shows. Colbert brings his sarcastic charm to a half-hour report, tackling the important issues of the day and telling his guests why their opinions are just plain wrong. Stephen stands for "truthiness" and his American right to copyright that word and claim ownership of it. The author describes this as a simple audiobook from a simple mind: Stephen Colbert's.

    Ty says: "Funny, but disappointing."

    Story

    News is often dated as close as yesterday, however somethings never change. The out of world perspective lends a neat thought provoking response to the reader. The shock value of the dialog makes this a PG 14 rated parental guidance required. If you can adapt to the in your face advertisements at increased volume you can hear all the way to the frig' you will enjoy the read.

    Who wants to settle for fleeting treasures on earth... when God offers everlasting treasures in Heaven?It's time to rethink our perspectives on money and possessions. In this thoroughly researched and extensively updated classic, Randy Alcorn shows us how to view them accurately as God's provision for our good, the good of others, and his glory. Alcorn presents a biblical and comprehensive view of money and possessions.

    Story

    A interesting revelation of Mr. Alcorn's past financial experience, that leads to a qualified personal perspective.

    Helps to refocus money values and making "the main thing, the main thing."

    You can't take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.

    This is an investment reference of eternal proportions.

    This is NOT a fund raiser, but a thought raiser. Don 't read this if you are looking to fluff you nest egg, it may cost you more than you bargain for.

    What will heaven be like? Randy Alcorn presents a thoroughly biblical answer, based on years of careful study, presented in an engaging, listener-friendly style. His conclusions will surprise readers and stretch their thinking about this important subject. Heaven will inspire readers to long for heaven while they're living on earth.

    Story

    Well written, informative, scripture supported.

    Causes one to look ahead, realizing the path may be shorter than we think.

    Changes the Up look to the next door look, as it may be closer than we think.

    My dear Grandmother said when she died she wanted to come back to earth to farm it.
    She may have been more theologically correct than we are led to believe.

    Here is a soul-stirring story of two college friends who reconnect after 20 years. One is living life apart from God, in comfortable corporate America; the other is living for Christ under intense persecution in China. This challenging book will convince readers to live in the light of eternity.

    Though this is a fiction, it is very thought provoking as you have to know this has gone on in the other countries and very well may come back to haunt the good old USA,

    Appreciate your religious freedom.
