I appreciated the connections to The Shining but found them to be too few and far between. I really was hoping for more of a connection to Danny's childhood than I got. This felt like a story that could have stood alone and instead due to a few threads tying the story to. Danny's youth is pitched as a sequel of sorts but it really doesn't feel to me like a logical next step to those events. As always Stephen King can write amazing character that I want to know more about and each seems unique,
Not sure I have a favorite, I wanted it to be Danny. Wanted it to feel like reconnecting with an old friend, but it didn't feel that way to me,
He does a nice job with the characters and they feel distinctive,
No, I was happy to do it in stages. It's not short and at the end you want to feel like you've been on a journey,
Absolutely! The stories, like all of Sedaris'' best work are both humorous and thought provoking. Nothing is better than when he reads his own work.
Me Talk Pretty One Day - because it's one of my favorites and this book reminds me of it in both tone and quality.
No one, and I mean no one, can read his work like he can. There's a reason why his book tours where he reads stories are so popularly attended,
You'll laugh, you'll cry from laughing, and you'll laugh some more.
Yes as having the perspective of how the story resolves makes me want to experience it thorough that lens to see what I missed the first time.
To answer would be to divulge a spoiler,
Justice, genetics and the nature of criminality,
Muller was the rare reader who elevated the story beyond its content. While I'm a huge fan of the Dark Tower series it's no coincidence that the books I enjoyed most were the audio versions Mr a Muller performed, I've read all the books and listened to all the books as well. My reading to myself never was as enjoyable as Muller's renditions. This is a good story that moves the characters along. I really begin to care quite a bit about them and they feel like friends by the end of this book.
Not sure I can think of one. It's not derivative despite taking place in a setting that feels post apocalyptic and that's been done so frequently. King creates a unique world though that makes the whole Dark Tower series unique and wonderful world with a fascinating mythology.
It's among his best. My favorite is probably Wizard and Glass but he's my favorite audio book reader ever. There isn't a close second,
Why would I want to do that?
It's my favorite book on poker psychology. My background is in psychology and I have a graduate degree in it. That doesn't make me immune to my own mental game flaws and. Jared is well qualified to teach on the matter. He presents some very common mental leaks in an easy to understand way and provides practical feedback on addressing the leaks.
The whole book is helpful. The leaks Jared covers are so common you're bound to identify with at least one. It's like having coaching sessions with him to read this,
He's good at this. The material is great and he reads it well for a non-professional reader.
Yes. After the overview I couldn't wait to get to the chapters that were specific to my own mental game weaknesses.
