I listened to the audiobook, which is overall pretty great. It uses different actors for each different chapter, and you will recognize many of them: Nathan Fillion, Masi Oka, Jeri Ryan, Mark Hamill, Henry Rollins, Denise Crosby, Common, and more. (C...more
The Sociopath Next Door by Martha Stout

Clear rating
An estimated 1 in 25 people are sociopaths, unable to feel the same emotions we do, and incapable of empathy. Thus, this is a pretty important topic that everyone should read up on. Not only for your personal safety but for your sanity.

I crapped out on this book halfway through. The fiancee of the main character has a young daughter from a previous marriage. This daughter is killed in the initial event. (That's not a spoiler - it happens in like the first 5 pages of the book.)

I had previously read and enjoyed Heart Shaped Box, but even so, I was surprised at how much I liked this one.

It has a lot of references to Stephen King's work, which I felt like Hill might have put in as a way of making up for the fact that a huge...more
Starvation Heights by Gregg Olsen

Clear rating
Fascinating story about a real-life psychopath doctor who starved her patients to death under the guise of a "fasting cure."

Language was a little bit too purple for my tastes. (e.g., "Sympathy poured from her eyes like a fountainhead.")

There were parts that I really liked, but the main narrative was bland and unconvincing. The main character, Bob Dollar, grated on me with his blandness. Every other character he encounters seemed a thousand times more interesting than he was; I kept...more
Lost At Sea by Jon Ronson
Rate this book

As with other Ronson audiobooks, this one was read by the author. He does a fairly decent job of it, but I always feel that a professional audiobook performer does better than the author as a rule of thumb.

This book collects a lot of Ronson's essays,...more

This book had a lot of promise, but it was wayyyyy too slow and tangent-follow-y for me. I bailed about 1/3rd of the way through.

I don't usually read mysteries, crime novels, or popular fiction. But this book came so highly recommended from so many quarters that I decided to give it a try. And it truly lived up to the hype.

I don't know what to say that wouldn't spoil it. Suffi...more
