Revolution by Russell Brand

Hilarious at times, very often frightfully clever, insightful on many levels, silly at the very least on some topics, and outrageously entertaining; what else could anyone want from a book?

Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo

Heaven is for real? No, it isn't. Grow up already. Did I read the book? Of course not, do I look like a 12 year old? If you want to build the foundation of your life on the writings of a bunch of flea-bitten cave dwellers from 3,000 years ago and a t ...more

While Europe Slept by Bruce Bawer

I disagree 100% with the Bush war on terror or whatever the hell his malignant policies concerning Islam can now be called. The political views of the author of this book couldn’t be further from my own. His conclusions on many of the events describe ...more

I’m being too generous with this rating but I tend to over-rate everything and only slam books that I think are dishonest. This book is just good, clean fun. Demille mentions in the new introduction to the book that The Gold Coast has been compared t ...more

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
Rate this book
Clear rating
From the perspective of history this book is absolute trash. Almost nothing is substantiated and the point of view makes it seem like it was written by a sort of Don Delillo all-seeing narrator. I listened to this on my bike rides here in my corner o ...more

Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut
Rate this book
Clear rating
As good as any place to begin if you haven't read anything by Vonnegut; it even has drawings to keep you entertained, and short, short chapters. It is also laugh-out-loud funny and extends the life of one of the greatest characters in American fictio ...more

Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007)

I grew up during the worst of the Viet Nam War era. As a kid I never knew why we were fighting. Communism isn’t a concept that a child can embrace as an enemy worthy of the most powerful nation on earth. That’s what we were

La virgen de los sicarios by Fernando Vallejo
"No es un libro para todo mundo, es irritante, cínico, ofensivo e inmisericorde ¡A mí me encantó! me tuvo enrollada sobre mí misma de la risa. Pero sé que es una impresión muy superficial, muy instantánea, algo irresponsable… me censuro pues y reca..." Read more of this review »
