    The Eagles are the bestselling, and arguably the tightest-lipped, American group ever. Now band member and guitarist Don Felder finally breaks the Eagles years of public silence to take fans behind the scenes. He shares every part of the bands wild ride, from the pressure-packed recording studios and trashed hotel rooms to the tension-filled courtrooms, and from the joy of writing powerful new songs to the magic of performing in huge arenas packed with roaring fans.

    Paul Schmitz says: "Don Felder is an interesting dude"
    "Excellent book by a very underrated guitarist."

    Where does Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles (1974-2001) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm not going to answer all these review questions. I just want to say that any fan of rock music in the seventies should read this book. Contrary to one reviewer, Felder is not a whiner. He describes the true life of a rock star; the good and the bad, and there was plenty of bad. Felder is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and most people probably don't even know who he is. Very eye-opening; excellent narration; get this book.

    Praising Tim Dorsey’s tongue-in-cheek humor, the Miami Herald wrote, “Nobody, but nobody, writes like this guy.” Here Florida politics take the main stage in a rollicking satire that proves Dorsey’s at the top of his game. When a traumatic experience forever changes Florida gubernatorial race candidate Marlon Conrad’s life, he hits the road in a Winnebago to find the “real” Florida. But his odyssey is plagued with would-be assassins and cutthroat journalists.

    Dubi says: "Storms Warning"
    "Very funny - for a while."

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

    Great sense of humor, but the jokes got old after a while. I hope the author knows that rich and ruthless Democrats exist in this world, but evidently only Republicans exhibit those qualities in this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tim Dorsey again?

    Not sure. I like his style but about half-way through I couldn't wait for the book to end so I could start something else. (Vision impaired, so it's only audiobooks for me) The reader was excellent.

    The works of Thomas Wolfe cemented his legacy as one of the very best of the American Southern writers. Wolfe's largely autobiographical novel features Eugene Gant, who pines for a more expansive life after being born to a father whose bouts of maniacal raving are fueled by a prodigious appetite for drink.

    Eric says: "One Of The Gret Novels Of The 20th Century"
    "Total Waste of Time."

    What would have made Look Homeward, Angel better?

    A plot! A purpose! I just don't get the great American novel reputation. I thought this was a waste of over thirty hours, when I count the times I had to back up to see if I missed something.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Thomas Wolfe again?

    I had never read anything by Wolfe before, and I'm pretty sure I will not again.


    What about Scott Sowers’s performance did you like?

    The performance was fine. No complaints about that.
