    "I Flew Over the Kuckoo's Nest"

    I've listened to about 50 well selected books so far. The Miracle Life of Edgar Mint was the only one that had me laughing out loud many, many times. The part where Edgar has a long stay in the hospital reminded me of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. In fact, because my earplugs kept people from recognizing I was listening to something, when I'd burst out in laughter, they must have thought I too had ascended to the Cuckoo's nest. WONDERFUL BOOK!

    "Different"

    This is a very different story written in a different way. Overall, the story isn't so bad. The ending is sweet. I would have given it a higher rating without so much swearing, and crude language / topics (ie. masturbation). I wish I had a way to know about those faults before hand so that I never would have bought this book.
    Warning: there is A LOT of swearing in the first half of this book.
