    Bob Greenberg is very entertaining and charismatic. What I especially liked about this book is the biographies of the composers that you get with the music... and the music! There are great music samples throughout. The only reason I knocked a star off is because it does get a little tedious at times. I actually stopped listening for a while and listened to another book, but I did come back and finish it.

  • The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World

    Look beyond the abstract dates and figures, kings and queens, and battles and wars that make up so many historical accounts. Over the course of 48 richly detailed lectures, Professor Garland covers the breadth and depth of human history from the perspective of the so-called ordinary people, from its earliest beginnings through the Middle Ages.

    I love history and was excited about this book but only got about half way through it and gave up. I did give it 3 stars because it does have some redeeming qualities in that there are interesting snippets here and there, but the author tends to focus too much on the negative - slavery, war, torture, hardship. And frankly the narrator was dry and boring, not engaging at all.

    In Face the Music, Paul Stanley - the co-founder and famous "Starchild" frontman of KISS - reveals for the first time the incredible highs and equally incredible lows in his life both inside and outside the band. Face the Music is the shocking, funny, smart, inspirational story of one of rock’s most enduring icons and the group he helped create, define, and immortalize. Stanley mixes compelling personal revelations and gripping, gritty war stories that will surprise even the most steadfast member of the KISS Army.

    I've never been a huge Kiss fan but I am a huge biography fan and music fan in general so this one caught my attention and I was not disappointed! This a great story and Paul Stanley (I wonder is his legal name is still Stanley Eisen?) is very charismatic. I felt that he was very honest about his struggles and his story. Since listening to this I've been watching a lot of Kiss videos on YouTube and have a new appreciation for the band. The only minor drawback and why I knocked one star off is that he does cut up his band mates pretty regularly, especially Peter Criss and Ace Frehley, and even Gene Simmons to some extent but not as much. But it is his story, and I guess he's telling it the way he experienced it.

  • The Son

    Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching portrait of the bloody price of power, The Son is an utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American West through the lives of the McCulloughs, an ambitious family as resilient and dangerous as the land they claim. Spring, 1849: Eli McCullough is 13 years old when a marauding band of Comanches takes him captive. Brave and clever, Eli quickly adapts to life among the Comanches, learning their ways and waging war against their enemies, including white men - which complicates his sense of loyalty and understanding of who he is.

    I love history and thought I was going to get a history of Texas... what I got was rape, murder, torture and confusing story lines... I could stomach only about 2 hours of this gore and bore. I haven't finished every book I've gotten but usually it's towards the end and its because it gets too tedious, I quit this one early and didn't go back.
