For 15 years and 35 seasons, the Bachelor franchise has been a mainstay in American TV viewers' lives. Since it premiered in 2002, the show's popularity and relevance has only grown - more than eight million viewers tuned in to see the conclusion of the most recent season of The Bachelor. The iconic reality television show's reach and influence into the cultural zeitgeist is undeniable. Bachelor Nation is the first behind-the-scenes, unauthorized look into the reality television phenomenon.
I was hoping for more bachelor “secrets” than the book had to offer. I finished the audiobook within 24 hours and the entire time while listening I was thinking “Ok, ok, get to the point and let’s move on to the secrets.” and all of a sudden realized I was already 6 hours deep in Chapter 10 of 13 and still nothing really happened. I’d say the bachelor franchise’s history was a much larger part of the book than revealing anything “inside the world of the bachelor nation”... Which is ok, and I definitely respect the Authors work because you can tell she lived and breathed bachelor nation while researching for this book and even before that, but I just hoped more of my answers about the behind-the-scenes would be answered. I also found it hard to follow at times, with multiple people contributing to the book while everything was read by the same person (the author). I absolutely LOVED the philosophical and psychological aspect the author explored with the support of various experts in the respective fields and really enjoyed delving into some theories or scientifically proven phenomenas that apply to some of the things regarding the show and it’s premise and it’s contestants.

Kommissar Franz Eberhofer ist genervt. Wieso muss das Telefon ausgerechnet dann klingeln, wenn Oma ihre köstlichen Frühstückseier mit Speck aufgetischt hat? Doch Dienst ist Dienst und so muss sich der grummelige Kommissar wieder einem kniffligen Fall in seinem Heimatort Niederkaltenkirchen widmen. Diesmal ist der Rektor der örtlichen Schule von einem Zug erfasst worden. Eberhofer glaubt nicht an Selbstmord und bald schon stehen 38 Tatverdächtige auf seiner Liste.
Sehr unterhaltsam, hervorragend gelesen - wie immer! Allerdings fand ich es nicht so lustig wie das erste Buch der Reihe. Das Schema war letztendlich irgendwie wieder ein ähnliches wie im ersten, mit ähnlichen Szenen bzgl. der Auflösung wie im ersten Band.

Vierfachmord und andere Köstlichkeiten - ein Krimi aus der bayerischen Provinz: Wer kennt sie nicht, die verschrobene Verwandtschaft? Angerührt aus skurrilen Dorfcharakteren und einem Vierfachmord bereitet Autorin Rita Falk aus diesen Zutaten Ihren berühmten humoristischen Krimi "Winterkartoffelknödel" zu.
habe schon innerhalb der ersten zwei minuten mehrmals laut lachen müssen und das ganze buch innerhalb eines tages angehört. man merkt, dass man ein gutes hörbuch erwischt hat, wenn man nicht aufhören will, zu hören aber gleichzeitig auch nicht mehr weiter hören will, weil man nicht so schnell fertig sein möchte. genau so ging es mir mit winterkartoffelknödel. zum glück gibts noch 7 weitere bücher die ich nun eins nach dem anderen durchhören werde! auch der leser ist absolut fantastisch und hat das ganze mit seinem bayerischen dialekt nur noch besser gemacht!
Alyssa Azar is unstoppable. When she was just eight years old, she walked the gruelling Kokoda Track, the youngest person in the world to do so. At 12 she climbed the 10 highest peaks in Australia. Two years later she touched the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Now, at the age of 19, she has reached the roof of the world: the summit of Mount Everest. The Girl Who Climbed Everest is the inspiring story of how an ordinary girl from country Queensland worked towards ascending the world's highest peak.
this is a good listen for anyone interested in what goes into extreme mountaineering like climbing everest. the book is mainly about how she prepared for the climb of everest and only briefly at the end actually describes the climb itself. that's the only thing i can criticize. you get so hyped up for her to finally summit mount everest, but then you only get a really quick summary of what she went through on the actual climb. i wish there would have been more detail about that particular part of her journey, as that is the main reason for the whole book.. the main thing she dedicated all of her young teen/adult life to.
For someone who made a career out of oversharing on the Internet, Tyler Oakley has a shocking number of personal mishaps and shenanigans to reveal in his first book: He experienced a legitimate rage blackout in a Cheesecake Factory; he had a fashion stand-off with the White House Secret Service; he crashed a car in front of his entire high school in an Arby's uniform; he projectile vomited while bartering with a grandmother.
what an amazing book! i love tyler and this made me chuckle, cringe, cry and most often laugh out loud so many times. totally worth listening to, as it really brings the book to life and adds tylers character in a brilliant way!
One of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike ( Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen’s signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy.
Loved everything about this audio book. This was my first time reading/listening to anything from Jane Austen and now I am completely obsessed and already read 2 other novels of her and watched multiple screen-adaptations of "pride and prejudice".
I love Rosamund Pikes performance, her voice is amazing - and i'm really picky when it comes to narraters voices! Had such a wonderful time listening to this book and I know that I will be going back to it a bunch of times in the future!
