The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
- A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
- By: Mark Manson
- Narrated by: Roger Wayne
- Length: 5 hrs and 17 mins
For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Worse than awful. I am trying to return this book
Has The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck turned you off from other books in this genre?
I thought it was just a catchy title, but it is full of the F word. So much so that it completely takes away from whatever glimmers of insight the author might have.

A Game of Thrones
- A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1
- By: George R. R. Martin
- Narrated by: Roy Dotrice
- Length: 33 hrs and 46 mins
Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances....
Review of First 5 Books

Good Story - didn't care for the reader
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The reader made listening very difficult.
What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?
Although I understand that there are many characters, and the timeperiod lends itself to "gruff" characters, I didn't like listening to the gruff and harsh voice of some of the characters. It was a difficult listen for me personally.
