Hermann Kermit Warm is going to die. The enigmatic and powerful man known only as the Commodore has ordered it, and his henchmen, Eli and Charlie Sisters, will make sure of it. Though Eli doesn't share his brother's appetite for whiskey and killing, he's never known anything else. But their prey isn't an easy mark, and on the road from Oregon City to Warm's gold-mining claim outside Sacramento, Eli begins to question what he does for a living - and whom he does it for. With The Sisters Brothers, Patrick deWitt pays homage to the classic Western....

I was looking for something different and enjoyed the out of the ordinary. I almost stopped listening after a couple of chapters. the story line kept me going. I think the reader did a great job portraying the era and knowledge level of the characters.

In Making Sense of the Bible, Adam Hamilton invites us into an honest conversation about the Bible. The book begins with foundational questions such as: How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it into the scriptures and why? How literally must we read it? And, is the Bible ever wrong? From there, Hamilton considers the real questions people frequently ask that continue to divide Christians and denominations alike

I wish I had this book years ago. Adam helped sort out so many confusions and confirmed many thoughts I have always had and wasn't sure how to put into words. the examples given are so relatable!

Anna Fox lives alone - a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times...and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble. And its shocking secrets are laid bare.

the first half of the book seemed to start really slow and 8 was getting a little board. I was going to quit since 8t wasn't holing my interest. I'm glad I stuck with it.

many people don't get to experience such deep friendships. This story can relate to actual life in so many ways. I loved the flow and the reality. The narrations were fantastic! I highly recommend.

In this classic story, set in Victorian England, a well-born colt tells his life story, from his early years in a pleasant meadow to his experiences as an elegant carriage horse and then an overworked cab horse. As he passes from one owner to another, some gentle, some cruel, Black Beauty tells a moving tale of an animal's perspective on the human world.

I laughed at myself when I purchased this book thinking it's so old. I congratulated myself when I was done for revisiting the story and seeing g it through adult eyes
