    Critics have called her “sweet, adorable, and vicious.” But there is so much more to be said about Samantha Bee. For one, she’s Canadian - whatever that means. And now, she opens up for the very first time about her checkered Canadian past. With charming candor, she admits to her Lennie from Of Mice and Men-style love of baby animals, her teenage crime spree as one-half of a car-thieving couple, and the fact that strangers seem compelled to show her their genitals.

    Coby says: "So Funny!"
    "Classic sam bee"

    Story

    Having the author narrate makes all the difference. Its classic, sarcastic, situational humor that the PC listener may not appreciate. Story line is a little choppy but if you can picture Sam Bees face you will thoroughly enjoy it.

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."
    "Barely reached my expectations for entertainment."

    Story

    I love dogs and my husband is into auto racing but this book was more about family and custody battles. It was written well, however I was bored during the meat of the story. The ending was not sad like most 'dog' books and was truely enchanting. Ultimately the last 30 minutes made the whole book 'worth it' though I would not give it a rave review.

  • Skippy Dies

    Story
    (847)

    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.

    Laura says: "Funny, touching, entertaining"
    "Get the abridged version"

    Story

    Get the abridged version unless you like hours of character development. Part three makes the whole story come together in an enthralling way but the lead up was a struggle for me to get through. Plot is spread a little too thin to keep my interest but I was glad I endured the end. Some perverse content may be a turn off for the morally staunch.
