    "Worst Reading Ever!"
    Overall

    I have to believe you could throw a dart out the window and hit someone…ANYONE that could have read this book better.

    This is the worst audiobook reading I've ever heard.

    It's like listening to a bad "radio commercial pitch man" audition.

    In Fun with Problems, Robert Stone demonstrates once again that he is "one of our greatest living writers" (Los Angeles Times). The pieces in this new volume vary greatly in length - some are almost novellas, others no more than a page - but all share the signature blend of longing, violence, black humor, sex, and drugs that has helped Stone illuminate the dark corners of the human soul.

    I'm not much of a fan of the audio book experience so far. But this is a great book for this format. The stories are done well and work great for audio in the short story format.

    Story

    The New York Times best-selling author of Cold Blooded and Hot Blooded, Lisa Jackson returns with a bone-chilling new book that begins with a gruesome scene—a woman awakens trapped inside a coffin with a rotting body! Surely, this must be the work of the Graverobber, a sinister Savannah, Georgia serial killer named for his macabre methods of execution.

    Leslie Edmonds says: "Narrator ruins book"
    "Cheesy"
    Overall

    To be fair, I only made it about 3/4 of the way through this book. I couldn't take it anymore.

    Aside from some semi graphic sexual content and language, the rest is like something written for a bad TV network series.

    The killer in the book gets the moniker "The Grave Robber" from the struggling but sassy newspaper reporter (and main character)...because...guess what he does...He robs graves.

    Brilliant!

    In this unique and invaluable guide, Dr. Meg Meeker, a pediatrician with more than 20 years' experience counseling girls, reveals that a young woman's relationship with her father is far more important than we've ever realized. To become a strong, confident woman, a daughter needs her father's attention, protection, courage, and wisdom. Dr. Meeker shares the 10 secrets every father needs to know in order to strengthen or rebuild bonds with his daughter and shape her life - and his own - for the better.

    Paul says: "My Daughter means everything to me, now I know why"
    "Some good advice...but a little too preachy."
    Overall

    God is mentioned several times in the first half of the book, and throughout you clearly get a sense of the authors conservatism. You'll be 100% confirmed at hour 3 -min 5 - sec 10 -chapter 6. when the bible verses are read.

    While a considerate amount of the advice is good, it comes across very preachy by the 3rd and 4th chapter.

    If you're a single parent be prepared to be insulted...you've already failed you daughter in this authors eyes.
