  • Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

    In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

    Reney says: "Be careful with logical leaps"
    "It is a good one!"
    Overall

    I thought this book was so interesting and informative. I listened to the Tipping Point first and although I enjoyed it, I feel the information in this book is so much more applicable to your everyday life. I was continually surprised at the author's insight and basically could not stop listening. Probably one of the most informative books I have ever read or listened to. I could not stop talking about it to my family and friends. It is a good one!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "5 stars for sure - more if possible!"
    Overall

    I loved this book and I want a dog like Enzo. Stein's writing style is so wonderful and anyone who has ever loved a dog can appreciate his dog insights. I have never really been all that interested in auto racing, but now I have a new appreciation of that sport and what it takes to compete as an race car driver. I laughed and cried my way through the book and at one point was doing both at once. Such a great story of love and devotion on both the human and animal levels. I didn't want it to end!

  • The Corrections: A Novel

    The Corrections is a grandly entertaining novel for the new century--a comic, tragic masterpiece about a family breaking down in an age of easy fixes. After almost 50 years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson's disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home.

    Cindy says: "A satisfying listen"
    "Couldn't decide 3 or 4 stars?"
    Overall

    For this book I wish I could rate it 3.75, it was definitely better than a 3 but really not quite a 4. The characters are really well developed and Franzen's writing style is very detailed and so vivid (unbelievable descriptions of what it must be like to have Parkinson's disease) - you definitely get the picture he has painted with words, but sometimes he just goes on too long, the detail and description is just too much. I like a good book that doesn't waste my time with tedious, unrelated to the story, details. For me that is what stops this book from being a 4.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Warren says: "Tina Fey broke my new SUV"

    Overall

    After reading all the 5 star reviews I was so excited to get this book and laugh my way through it. Unfortunately, I did very little laughing. I finished it because my reading rule is to finish all books, but I can't say it was easy to finish. Tina was just not funny. I had to go back and look at all the reviews and buried way deep in the review lists I found some like minded people, but for whatever reason we are in the minority of reviews for this book. Sorry, but there is no way I would give this book 5 stars, I can barely give it 2.

    This collection of short stories from the master of modern fiction is available only as an audiobook. In Blood and Smoke, Stephen King takes us inside a world of yearning and paranoia, isolation and addiction. It is the world of the smoker. In this audio-only collection, the now politically incorrect habit plays a key role in the fates of three different men.

    chilling, i was not a stephen king fan, but now i am. it's scary though!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Simply the best book I have ever read"
    Overall

    This is simply the best book I have ever read. Amazing story telling.
