    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....

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Short pieces of Tina Fey's life but gives us insight into her drive and character. All the while light and funny. Her comic writing abilities come through in the book. I loved it.

    John Ceepak and Danny Boyle return with the hunt for a long-dormant serial killer who might be ready to strike again. An innocent discovery on the beach in Sea Haven pits Ceepak against a killer with a code just as rigid as his own. When the killer targets his next victim, the consequences becomes dire for Ceepak and Boyle. This is a game they must win.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is in the wrong category. I cannot believe I finished this book. The characters have no depth. The narrator is about 14. Just a huge waste of time.


    What was most disappointing about Chris Grabenstein’s story?

    Boring?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Woodman’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from Whack-a-Mole?

    Not a one held any interest for me.

    Baking is an alchemical process for Corinna Chapman. At four am she starts work at Earthly Delights, her bakery in Calico Alley. But one morning Corinna receives a threatening note saying "The wages of sin is death" and finds a syringe in her cat's paw. A blue-faced junkie has collapsed in the dark alley and a mysterious man with beautiful eyes appears with a plan for Corinna and her bread. Then it is Goths, dead drug addicts, witchcraft, a homeless boy and a missing girl and it seems she will never get those muffins cooked in time.

    What did you love best about Earthly Delights?

    The baking and the bakers life style.


    What other book might you compare Earthly Delights to and why?

    Various amateur detective novels


    What does Louise Siversen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For the most part, I enjoyed the narration. Her attempt at various voices was not satisfactory, but not as distracting as some.


    If you could rename Earthly Delights, what would you call it?

    Muffins and Mystery and Murder Most Foul


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story and the various characters, which is why I like Kerry Greenwood. She peoples her books with the most interesting characters. And so out of the ordinary. And the situations she puts them in. Quite shocking here.

    "The Secret Place", a board where the girls at St Kilda's School can pin up their secrets anonymously, is normally a mishmash of gossip and covert cruelty, but today someone has used it to reignite the stalled investigation into the murder of handsome, popular Chris Harper. Stephen joins forces with the abrasive Detective Antoinette Conway to find out who and why.

    Tana French writes the most fascinating stories, but this narration is horrible. I like when the reader just reads the story - though not enough for me to quit reading.

    Combining suspense and intrigue with a wonderfully humorous take on the link between man and beast, Spencer Quinn's exceptional mystery series has captured widespread praise since its New York Times best-selling debut, Dog on It. The Dog Who Knew Too Much marks the duo's triumphant return in a tale that's full of surprises.

    I had no idea the story would be told in the third person? narrative by a dog. I should have sent it back but kept thinking the detective would eventually take a larger part. Nope.

  • Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street

    An insider of both the Bush and Obama administrations offers an irrefutable indictment of the mishandling of the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program bailouts and the extreme degree to which our government officials—from both parties—served the interests of Wall Street at the expense of the public. From his first day on the job as the special inspector general in charge of overseeing the distribution of the bailout money, Neil Barofsky found that the officials at the Treasury Department in charge of the bailouts were in thrall to the interests of the big banks.

    I've read most of the books on the mortgage swindles. This is the best, most interesting and names names. Barofsky is my new hero. He also is self deprecating, humorous and gives credit where due. The snakes in Washington do not compare to the drug runners in Columbia he prosecuted.

    This touching and uproarious novel by author Paul Murray made everyone’s best fiction of 2010 lists, including The Washington Post, Financial Times, Village Voice, and others. Why Skippy dies and what happens next is the mystery that links the boys of Dublin’s Seabrook College (Ruprecht Van Doren, the overweight genius obsessed with string theory; Carl, the teenager drug dealer and borderline psychotic; Philip Kilfether, the basketball-playing midget) to their parents and teachers in ways that no one could have imagined.

    This book is about boys in a school coming of age but drugs, suicide, beatings, not my cup of tea. I read the whole thing and was very happy it was over. 3 parts?! "Probably won a Pulitzer", she said sarcastically.

    A missing person case brings private eye Roy Markham to the remote winter-bound college town of Cliff's End, New Hampshire. But what began as a routine investigation quickly becomes dark and dangerous. Six pornographic photos and a tidy little blackmail scheme result in a brutal and baffling murder, and no one is safe - especially Markham himself.

    As a sniper with the elite Massachusetts State Police SWAT Team, Bobby Dodge saved a woman and her young son by shooting her armed husband. But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son.

    Sherry says: "I know I'm not Alone . . ."
    "Wrong narrator"
    Overall

    The book was mediocre at best. The plot was so unreal it was beyond belief. I have listened to narrator Anna Fields read other books and I like her. I did not like her on this book at all. Her attempt at the different voices was terrible and distracting. When a reader just reads the book I like it better. I can imagine the voices. Some readers are great at the different voices and accents, but if the reader is not, they should just read.

    Author of the critically acclaimed Martha Chainey mystery series, Gary Phillips is a master at capturing the gritty reality of the streets. Bangers takes listeners to the crime infested L.A. neighborhood of Venice Heights, where an elite team of cops struggles to maintain order. They are on the right side of the law, yet these officers will bend or break any rule to bring gangsters down - but too much power leads to corruption and chaos.
