  • Revenge of the Whale: The True Story of the Whaleship Essex

    Can a whale attack a ship? The shipwrecked crew of the whaleship Essex was living proof that it could when a whale displayed a fury never before witnessed, ramming and sinking their vessel in a matter of minutes in November 1820. The story of their survival is one rarely spoken of by Nantucketers even to this day, but National Book Award-winning author Nathaniel Philbrick courageously brings every shocking detail into the light.

    Mark says: "So great I want to hear the longer version."
    "Mobey Dick??"
    Overall

    This was a very interesting story of a true whale encounter, followed by a story of courage, luck, and survival.

  • Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper

    This is Diablo's captivating fish-out-of-water story of her yearlong walk on the wild side, from quiet gentlemen's clubs to multilevel sex palaces and glassed-in peep shows. In witty prose she gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at this industry through a writer's keen eye, chronicling her descent into the skin trade and the effect it had on her self-image and her relationship with her now husband.

    Story
    What did you like best about Candy Girl? What did you like least?

    The story was a new twist on the stripper/prostitute angle. This girl was not forced into the life or led there by some male taking advantage of her. She went because she tried it and became addicted, according to the story.

    I didn't think the reader was as bad as many said. There was not a lot of inflection in the voice, but I guess I overlooked that.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Natalie Moore?

    probably


    Could you see Candy Girl being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NOPE! I would not be watching it anyway if they made it. Not opposed to sex in movies, nor to some degree, not opposed to movies about sex. I just think this is a poor venue for it. I would get really tired of watching her and her friends do pole dances and masterbation.

    In 1820, Richard Sharpe has become a peaceful farmer following Waterloo, but comes out of retirement to undertake a perilous mission. He must find Don Blas Vivar, Captain-General of the Spanish colony of Chile and an old friend, who vanished without a trace half a world away.

    Graham says: "A great ending to Sharpe and Napoleon"
    "Sharpes End"
    Overall

    I will miss Richard, if this truly is the last of the series. It is somewhat predictable, but still enjoyable. It met my expectations. Cornwell as usual does his research for this book. I recommend it to you.

    Eddie is a grizzled war veteran who feels trapped in a meaningless life of fixing rides at a seaside amusement park. His days are a dull routine of work, loneliness, and regret.

    Mark says: "Truly Inspiring and Meaningful"
    "Interesting, but...."
    Overall

    I thought it took a long time to say that everything we do effects others. That is the basis of the book. It caused me to think about people I know, but it was not at all what I expected in the book.

  • One Ranger: A Memoir

    When his picture appeared on the cover of Texas Monthly, Joaquin Jackson became the icon of the modern Texas Rangers. Nick Nolte modeled his character on him in the movie Extreme Prejudice. Jackson even had a speaking part of his own in The Good Old Boys with Tommy Lee Jones. But the role that Jackson has always played the best is that of the man who wears the silver badge cut from a Mexican cinco peso coin, a working Texas Ranger.

    Roy says: "Texana"
    "One Ranger"
    Overall

    A very good book about one Texas Ranger. Has interetsting stories about his life and his work. He has a tendency to find only his ideas to be proper. I can agree with most of his ideas, but not all.
