    Story
    (79)

    For Larison, a man off the grid and on the run, the sleepy northern California town of Arcata, gateway to the state's fabled Lost Coast, seems like a perfect place to disappear for a while. But Arcata isn't nearly as sleepy as it seems, and when three locals decide Larison would make a perfect target for their twisted sport, Larison exacts a lifetime of vengeance in one explosive evening.

    If you could sum up The Lost Coast in three words, what would they be?

    Not that bad


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not what you expect from Barry Eisler but gives you insight to that freak Larison.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To short to really have one.

    No


    Any additional comments?

    If your homophobic then this is not for you. Deliverance but not with hicks...it is OK but wouldn't want to see it in a movie.

  • Go the F--k to Sleep

    (7814)

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    For most couples, a quiet dinner for two at Auberge de la Reine Blanche on the Ile Saint Louis would be just the thing to smooth out the complications in a romance. But for gorgeous Mossad operative Delilah and trying-to-retire contract killer John Rain, nothing is ever easy, and when Rain sees a crew of hard-looking men setting up outside the restaurant, he realizes someone has been bringing her work home with her. Is it a hit - or something even worse?
