Clear rating
Trailers is a rare 1 star from me as I didn't care for this at all. I blasted through it on a lunch break at work or I wound't have finished it. Kind of a ridiculously overwrought tale of a dysfunctional family in a Southern trailer park with a drug- ...more

You're Not Doing It Right by Michael Ian Black
Rate this book
Clear rating
After enjoying listening to Rob Lowe read an autobiography, I thought I'd listen to comedian/actor Michael Ian Black do the same. Black has a very dry sense of humor, which I like, and hearing him talk in a brutally honest way about his wife, childre ...more

Strange, surreal graphic novel about a group of strangers who go to a beach and find out they might not be able to leave while something even more mysterious is going on. Sort of like a Twilight Zone episode in graphic novel form. Fun.

Eli Sanders crime non-fiction about the brutal rape and murder of two women in Seattle is well-written and exhaustively researched, but Sanders, a journalist who won awards for his reporting on the story, fills the book with so much information about ...more

I listened to Rob Lowe read this and it was very enjoyable as Lowe does impressions and, like his acting, has terrific timing when telling the stories of his life. What was most fascinating to me was the tremendous amount of detail that Lowe goes int ...more

Time and Again is one of my favorite time travel books of all time and re-read it during my commute. I actually listened to it and the book does lose a little bit this way since it doesn't include the great drawings that illustrate the novel. Still, ...more
