    In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    "touching and hysterical"
    Overall

    as always, david sedaris is an absolute delight. his latest book shows a combination of emotional maturity mixed with his self-aware neurotic side that leads to several wonderful stories. several had me laughing so hard i was wondering if i should pull the car over; others were touching in that unique way that is real, not saccarine. the only thing better than reading david sedaris is hearing david sedaris read his pieces, so this audiobook is a must-have.

  • Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

    For two thousand years, cadavers have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.

    Matthew says: "Darn funny if you're open to the idea."
    "fascinating introduction to a macabre subject"
    Overall

    i admit it. i watch CSI religiously. i like forensics shows. so this book would appeal to me. but mary roach does a fantastic job of not only delving into areas most of us would go to great pains to avoid, but also addressing the moral and ethical issues of such topics as organ donation and the use of cadavers in research. i learned a lot, the reading is well done, and the writing is done in a very accessible, even entertaining style. highly recommended.

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "Excellent reading of vastly entertaining story"
    Overall

    i've been avoiding Snow Crash for ages, despite the high recommendations of my friends. in this case, i'm glad i went for the audiobook, because the reader they chose really made the listening a huge pleasure. the story is fast-paced, very entertaining, and rather amazing for how closely it parallels some of what is happening today. highly recommended.
