Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

I never ordered this book. Was this a credit that was used without my consent?

More than a decade ago, number-one New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon delighted her legions of fans with The Outlandish Companion, an indispensable guide to all the Outlander books at the time. But that edition was just a taste of things to come. Since that publication, there have been four more Outlander novels, a side series, assorted novellas, and one smash-hit Starz original television series.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is more like a Cliff's book summarizing the fantastic Outlander books (which I enjoyed very much). I thought this book was going to be a story, not a meandering monotonous narrative about how Diana came up and/or supports her historical accuracies or inaccuracies of her Outlander series.

Has The Outlandish Companion Volume Two turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

What three words best describe the narrators’s performance?

Monotonous

What character would you cut from The Outlandish Companion Volume Two?

Non

Any additional comments?

It was awful.

Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God.

The narrator (Bill) made it extremely difficult to listen to the book. I felt l listened to the O'reilly show on Fox news. Couldn't make it through the book because of the narrator.
