    Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, delineating the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want - any way we can. Controversial but never dull, timeless and up-to-date, it's destined to be Greene's next best seller.

    I cannot believe I spent money buying this book!??!!!

    It seems to be written by the dark Lord himself (from either the Lord of the rings or Harry Potter) trying to create his army of equally dark, imbecile people. What he talks about in the book not only goes against all your moral ethics and beliefs but it is just so instrinsically wrong, that even if a person uses them and finds some success h/she will never finding lasting happiness. He teaches people to be "coquettish", "contradictory", "Send mixed signals", "dandy", and "believe in your own lies"....????

    He even refers to the people you intend to seduce as "Victims"! Is he enrolling Vampires? I have never been so utterly disappointed in any book or in myself for having bought it. Your seductions did not work here.

  • The Book Thief

    It's just a small story really, about, among other things, a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak's groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can't resist: books.

    Overall

    I really dont know what I can say that other people have not already said about this book. But this book moved me so much that I could not bring myself not to write even a word about it.

    Through this book I got a chance to live through Hitler's Germany and the atrocities and uncertainties of a war inflicted world, and all this through the eys of an innocent little girl less than 14years old.

    I cried and I laughed. This is what writing is all about. Anything that can move a human soul so deeply as this book does, deserves a mention. I am just surprised this one missed the bestseller list!

    And oh a word about the narrator: Allan Corduner. Phenomenal Job! He made the book come alive, it was like watching a movie rather than listening to a book. It was so unobtrusive that I almost failed to notice the narrator or even the fact that I was hearing; not listening or seeing.
    If you like a good book, that you will remember for years, then this one should be your next pick.

    Hoping to improve their social standing, May and Pearl's parents arrange for their daughters to "Gold Mountain men" who have come from Los Angeles to find brides. But when the sisters leave China and arrive at Angel's Island (the Ellis Island of the West, where they are detained, interrogated, and humiliated for months) they feel the harsh reality of leaving home. And when May discovers she's pregnant, the situation becomes even more desperate. The sisters make a pact that no one can ever know.

    Frances says: "Touching, sad, and enjoyable"
    "Excellent novel, dont miss out!"
    Overall

    This is a very special book. I learned so much about China in the 1900's and the plight of women, and how simple yet difficult life was then. Its also very Poignant in how it portrays the relationship between the two sisters who lose all the comforts as well as their parents and family home and run to California to suffer more hardship and disgrace. While battling their own insecurities, fears and jealousies, they lose everything but the love for each other. SIGH! This is a beautiful gift for your sister or best friend. Like most of Lisa See's novels, this is a classic.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "Great book and a great listen"
    Overall

    Almost everyone has talked so highly about this book. And I am here to say, "They are absolutely right". This is a great book about a little boy who grows up in some rather abnormal circumstances. Its funny, sad, creepy, mystical and comes with some great pieces of insight. I do want to add that Neil Geiman is clearly not just a great writer but an excellent narrator as well. The book has so many characters it would be so hard to listen if it were not for the narrator, who just magically transforms his voice to suit the character. Buy this book, if you have a taste for genius!

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    Phillip says: "I couldn't put it down...5 STARS"
    "A Great Read...hear!"
    Overall

    Angels and Demons is really well worth your time. Its an excellent book, great plot, and the narrator is just fabulous. He manages to play the roles for so many people so well. Sometimes its hard to get into a story when you are listening rather than reading, but this one, you will love!
