cheesy dialogue abounds, as does politically incorrect humor, high stakes adventure, beautiful women and dashing heroes.

if you are looking for junk food entertainment, look no further than one of my favorite guilty pleasures.

A hilarious and emotional personal account of the life, times, mistakes, and crippling codependence of comedian, producer, director, actress, and writer Whitney Cummings. Full of intellect, pathos, and profundity, I'm Fine...and Other Lies is, in Whitney's words, her first book, which means her last date. With her signature incendiary edge and self-deprecation, Whitney comes clean about what has shaped her into the trailblazing comic that she is today.

Whitney Cummings brings her sense of style, self-deprication, humor and insight into her autobiography. I loved hearing her performance as the author as she brought her stand-up style to bear.
As far as the content goes, there is a large element of being tone-deaf. The author talks about the importance of being self-aware while telling her fables and anecdotes, yet fails to be self-aware. Talking about how our culture encourages victimhood and a lack of accountability while attempting to absolve herself of her choices. "I behaved like this because nobody told me not to _____", yet she never seems to realize that she actually didn't need to be told that if she bothered to act with maturity.

In short, I love this lass. she is funny as hell and has an interesting story to tell. She seems to avoid Occam's razor like the plague in regards to personal assessment, choosing eloquent rationalizing as opposed to short ugly truth. For some reason I still love her. She has a delightfully light hearted style when telling about some of her darkest moments and incoherent foibles. one cannot hear of her poetic love affair with dogs without smiling. it's a flawed book by a flawed author, yet her voice is as easy on the ears as she is on the eyes. And just like her stand-up comedy, the hours go by too quickly.

Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

The liberal media machine did everything they could to keep this book out of your hands. Now, finally, Dangerous, the most controversial book of the decade, is tearing down safe spaces everywhere.

The catty queen who set political culture on fire is back at it again. the biggest political upset of modern times was the election of Donald Trump. At a close second to "Daddy's" success was a hilarious supervillain who has been able to publicly expose the mindless hysteria of his cultural opponents. Despite lies, bans, and an infamous setback, the bitch in Louis Vuitton has executed his book with the fabulous sense of humor and mischievousness that made him a star in the first place. Milo justifies his opinions and his style with a level of cleverness not commonly associated with political firebrands. His exploits are thoroughly documented on YouTube, and here we get a broader context and rationale behind his gloriously offensive style. At times he can be a bit catty, bitchy, and dare I say, a little petty. Yet, none of his particular flash is without substance. I finished this book in less than 36 hours. It would have been 12 except my third shift job takes up a lot of time since cis-white-straight-male privilege doesn't actually exempt me from paying my bills. The fag in drag continues to show us why we love him, and why his haters are miserable, ugly, and incapable of beating him. He paints the politically correct left as a creepy youth pastor who is desperate to be seen as cool to younger people, but is ultimately unable to compete with the allure of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. This is his first book, and I want more.

from an 0311 veteran of six years...

God Bless Milo. Queen of the gays, breaker of safe spaces, sucker of dicks, bane of feminism, duchess of debate, lover of mischief, and Lord over all he offends.

long may he trigger.

In particular, the clandestine activities of Boston's Sons of Liberty in the decade before the war continue to be a source of both intrigue and mystery. The Sons of Liberty chronicles the amazing lives and careers of the four most famous members of the Sons of Liberty, examines their relationships before and during the Revolution, and analyzes their lasting legacies. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Samuel Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere and John Hancock like you never have before.

a very well thought out and informative book about the lesser known, more volatile and arguably more interesting figures of the American revolution.
