For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name. Please note: This work contains descriptions of violent crime and sexual assault and may not be suitable for all listeners.

This was well done very informative but also sad and tragic as it should be because what that man did was horrid. GSK was, is a monster and thank God it seems (I believe) he has been captured after so long and will have what's coming to him. Out of all the chapters, the chapter that stood at the most for me was chapter 12. Sitting in my truck, listening at a local grocery store just before I was ready to go in and shop. Couldn't go in until I finished the very and had wiped away the tears. I just can't even imagine.

  • Failure Is an Option

  • An Attempted Memoir

While he's not quite a household name, most people would consider H. Jon Benjamin, the voice-actor star of Archer and Bob's Burgers (and a sentient can of mixed vegetables in 2015's Wet Hot American Summer) a comedy show business success. But he'd like to remind everyone that as great as success can be, failure is also an option. In a hilarious, self-deprecating memoir, Jon lays out some of his many failures in all areas of life, from Work ("wherein I'm unable to deliver a sizzling fajita") to Family ("wherein a trip to PF Chang's fractures a family").

I laughed so much through this whole book. Of course the whole time I have to admit I'm imagining Bob from Bob's Burgers. This book was freaking brilliant! Did anyone else get a little teary-eyed toward the of the chapter with the valet?

Last summer, The New Yorker published chef Anthony Bourdain's shocking, "Don't Eat Before Reading This." Now, the author uses the same "take-no-prisoners" attitude in his deliciously funny and shockingly delectable audiobook, sure to delight gourmands and philistines alike.

This book has been on my list and I'm sorry to say I never really made an effort to read until Anthony's death. I wish I read it sooner. Sad to say there will never be another like Mr. Bourdain.
I'm so incredibly happy that Mr. Bourdain narrated his book, it would have not been the same if it had been anyone else. Word for word, he really makes you feel as though you were living it at that moment...you can almost smell and taste every perfect morsel. Food is life and Life is food...and the people behind it all...from the dishwasher to the Head Chef bust their asses and literally give the blood sweat and tears for what they do. This book has easily just made my 10 list. ❤R.I.P. AB❤

Benedict Cumberbatch reads Ian Kelly’s biography of one of the most beguiling and controversial individuals of any age. In this fascinating biography of the notorious libertine, Ian Kelly draws on documents by Casanova, his friends, and his lovers (male and female) in order to bring fresh insights to the man’s life and world. The sights and smells of 18th-century Europe are brought keenly to life, as are the colourful incidents of Casanova’s life.
