Some of the acts were quite good, but nowhere near enough of them. It really wasn’t worth it in the end. Otherwise a great idea, they just need to pick better comedians.

Good on you, Em

I wasn’t really familiar with her work, only vaguely remembering her name from somewhere. But a comedian’s autobiography on the daily deal, what the hell? I’m so glad I did. It was funny, it was sad, it was so wonderfully honest. I really feel like I got to know her. And now I’m a fan, boob hair and all. A truly lovely read.

Are usually like true crime stories. But this was not one of those. It lacked any of the insight and coverage of the investigation. It was just a dreary accountOf the endless stream of abuse inflicted on children. It was really quite unpleasant to read. I wish I hadn’t.

Fairly interesting

Another insightful book by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s just a shame that it was abr. I think a version of the fulltext would be great to have an audible. Unfortunately it’s the weakest of all his books because of it.

Good read sad story

Much better than the movie. It delivered on what the movie trailer promised. And interesting account of the fall of politics and media.

The best writing about this book was the publishes summary that tricked me into buying it. Sure, Walter White read it beautifully, but the material he had to work with was dreadful. And incoherent collection of jibber-ish and meaningless stories. Thank God for audible’s money back guarantee.

Yeah, good

It was a bit slow, taking a long time to go not very far. I don’t think the steaks were quite high enough. But having said that, it was beautifully written and very engaging. It’s slowly build the tension and lead to a very satisfying ending. I really enjoyed it in the end.

I thought this was a good story the The pages turning. Very enjoyable. I'll keep going with the series though.

A strong beginning for the series

Even though this is the eighth book in the series, it's the first chronologically, and the first one I read. It was enjoyable, so much so that I read it in 36 hours. Looking forward to the next one. It's a bit more thoughtful unusual detective/action genre, which makes for a very good read.

Harrowing and beautiful

This is a truly amazing story. What he went through is just incredible. Amazing strength and resilience, and beautifully written.
