Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office.

We follow elenore, a semi believable, semi functional lunatic along her narrow path of discovery. I only found it plausable at times and would relate to, then completely not relate to the character. Good prose. Often witty. Very British.

In 1558 the ancient stones of Kingsbridge Cathedral look down on a city torn apart by religious conflict. As power in England shifts precariously between Catholics and Protestants, high principles clash bloodily with friendship, loyalty, and love. Ned Willard wants nothing more than to marry Margery Fitzgerald. But when the lovers find themselves on opposing sides of the religious divide sweeping across the country, Ned goes to work for Princess Elizabeth. When she becomes queen, all Europe turns against England.

At his age, to research a novel this painstakingly and to write a story as good as any he's done over a decades long career..... Very proud of that old coot Follett! And John Lee still had the pipes to breathe life into the characters!

your typical, cookie cutter, guy trying to get home to his family when the grid fails and people turn bad story. Nothing new is brought to the table. very little creativity. just retelling the same old tale, and the characters were less compelling and less believable than in many other post apoco stories

"The Three Brothers", they call themselves. They claim that they are there to help. And he thinks that if he doesn't rock the boat, then they will never have a reason to break in his door and disappear him, like they did to his brother.

Meet Ginny Moon. She's mostly your average teenager - she plays flute in the high school band, has weekly basketball practice, and reads Robert Frost poems in English class. But Ginny is autistic. And so what's important to her might seem a bit...different: starting every day with exactly nine grapes for breakfast, Michael Jackson, her baby doll, and crafting a secret plan of escape.

what a great read and authentic voice of a child with autism. Ginny was a true voice, while at the same time interesting and funny to listen to. my
only complaint is that it was a little to clear that the book was written from a father's perspective. the voice and emotions from the mother seemed less real or natural. a good read. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

Thunder Boy Jr. is named after his dad, but he wants a name that's all his own. Just because people call his dad Big Thunder doesn't mean he wants to be Little Thunder. He wants a name that celebrates something cool he's done, like Touch the Clouds, Not Afraid of Ten Thousand Teeth, or Full of Wonder. But just when Thunder Boy Jr. thinks all hope is lost, he and his dad pick the perfect name...a name that is sure to light up the sky.

this audio 'book' seems nothing more than Alexi probably fulfilling a promise or bet with his kid that he could read the next book. it is seriously just a few sentences. not funny or meaningful, and don't even think about getting a plot. this is bad.

Ten years after the collapse, Huxley has built a good life again. He has a loving wife, a farm with fields of golden barley, and a daughter with a strange and wonderful gift. Then the slavers come. Working out in the fields during the attack, Huxley returns too late. His daughter has been taken, and his wife is bleeding out, her last whispered words about a man with a scorpion tattoo on his neck. Where do the slavers go? Huxley has no idea. He knows only that they head east, and so will he, setting out on foot across the desert of the Wastelands.

this is not high literature, and the emotions of the characters are a little 2 dimensional and predictable. but on the action front, Molle does not disappoint. There are mountains of suspense and lots of edge-of-your-seat reading. Those hoping to delve into the how's and why's of Molle's post apocalyptic world will be disappointed, but if you enjoy stories like Cormac McCarthy's the Road and can handle an even higher octaine, you will be pleased.

Saint James Street James is a tall, extremely muscular, 32-year-old man whose attributes and possessions include a mind stronger than Socrates on acid; a magnificent horse he loves more than anything in the world; a package so large that it requires a signature; a beautiful, passionate wife with a rack so perfect it belongs on a billiard table; a shit ton of children; and his own personal gold mine. His life, set in 1849 against the backdrop of the California gold rush, is one long parade of amazing sex, dynamite montages, and whiskey.

how many times can you make the same sex jokes? how shallow can a protagonist possibly be? Ross Patterson is going to find out. the amazing thing is, after hearing about his penis for the 62 time, I was still laughing.

don't expect high literature, or much of a story. this is more Andrew Dice Clay meets the Magnificent 7. If Trump grabbing em' by the pussy made you more laugh than cry, you might really be able to enjoy this book.
