Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

This was a very long book. You have to do a lot of deep profound thinking and scrutinizing of your own personal beliefs constantly it's very draining but also very informative and support of and helps you to adjust your thinking should you believe that your current thinking on a particular subject isn't quite the way to lead your life. I would highly recommend this book. Specifically I would highly recommend this book in a group setting with a person of faith like a pastor or priest in attendants.

Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

Tina entertains no matter what she does. Of course, her book is hysterical. That has to happen ...... she is Tina Fay. But she is also smart, clever, and down-to-earth. She reveals herself as the person I imagined her to be. I've always admired her, now I love her her fearless willingness to be self-deprecating at times, In an innocent, sincere, candid way only she can be, is so endearing. I must say the more I read books from and about powerful woman, the more I come to believe that they're changing the world by softening the raw edges.

The perfect letter deserves a perfect grade A++ Chris Harrison has a lot of imagination and excellent writing abilities. I'm surprised he didn't follow the dream of being a writer and publishing great books, instead of hosting the bachelor and the bachelorette. Then again, perhaps that's where he garnered so much knowledge about LOVE.

The reason I headed this review with never remove this book from your kindle or your audible apps is because I must have read it and listened to it more than a dozen times over the past several years since it has been released. Every time my husband and I decide to have a knock-down-drag-out fight and I believe that I am in the right and that he is in the wrong. I drag out my audible version of men are from Mars and women are from Venus. I will light a candle turn off the television remove all electronic's devices from my husband's hands give him a nice cold beer and poor glass of wine for myself. Dimming the lights I shall hit play after 1 or 2 minutes of whining not again, my husband and I listen to the book yet again. This is the point in time when we both realize our wrongs and our rights and our guilty selfishness, kiss and make up. Cheaper than marital counseling and I believe more effective.
