  • My Planet: Finding Humor in the Oddest Places

    Follow New York Times best-selling author Mary Roach - but be careful not to trip - as she weaves through personal anecdotes and everyday musings riddled with her uncanny wit and amazingly analytical eye. These essays, which found a well-deserved home within the pages of Reader's Digest as the column "My Planet," detail the inner workings of hypochondriacs, hoarders, and compulsive cheapskates. (Did we mention neurotic interior designers and professional list makers?) For Roach, humor is hidden in the most unlikely places, which means that nothing is off limits.

    Would you try another book from Mary Roach and/or Angela Dawe?

    I like Mary Roach. The trouble was the narration. She sounded like she was trying too hard to project her voice, which left no room for personality, Very flat and monotone. I will have to break down and actually read this book!

    My name is Amelia Gray. I'm a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. In order to protect myself from the parasitic nature of the dead, I've always held fast to these rules passed down from my father…until now. Detective John Devlin needs my help to find a killer, but he is haunted by ghosts who shadow his every move. To warn him would be to invite them into my life. I've vowed to keep my distance, but the pull of his magnetism grows ever stronger even as the headstone symbols lead me closer to truth and to the gossamer veil that separates this world from the next.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, nice mix of paranormal and romance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Restorer?

    Can't give away the plot! The romance bits were awesome.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator really struggled with the Southern accents. To her credit, she got better as she progressed through the series.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes
