What did you love best about Behind Her Eyes?

This book kept me guessing! Every time I thought I had an idea that I had it figured out, some other twist presented itself and I was sucked in again (trying to figure out the answer)

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat and I found myself wanting to read/listen to the book during every spare minute I had!

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. But I liked the narrators very much.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I don't want to spoil this for anyone who hasn't read it, but YES! I had an extreme reaction during and at the end of the book.

Any additional comments?

Just read the book... don't read anything online about it ... just read it all yourself and WOW!

  • Short Course in Beer

  • An Introduction to Tasting and Talking About the World's Most Civilized Beverage

Straightforward and opinionated, Short Course in Beer is designed to turn the novice beer lover into an expert imbiber and the casual drinker into an enthusiast. Readers will come to understand the beauty of beer and the sources of its flavor, as well as learn which beers are worth our time and which are not. With tongue in cheek, the author examines beer's historical connections to the Crusades, the Hundred Years' War, and modern-day soccer riots. He talks frankly (and joyfully) about the effects of alcohol on the body and brain, he defends beer from its enemies, and ushers it out of the frat house and into the dining room.

I liked the story-telling aspect of this book rather than a "textbook-like" reading. As a beginner in the beer-serving industry, I learned a lot
