sound quality is atrocious
Chuck D Presents This Day in Rap and Hip-Hop History - Shepard Fairey,Chuck D

I'm not sure what's up with the copy of the audio book i have, but the sound quality is tinny and echoing on the main book (mind you, the forward was perfectly fine).  can't listen to this copy.

Thrilling But Sometimes Unbelievable
The Missile Game (The Dr. Scott James Thriller Series) (Volume 1) by Glenn Shepard (2015-01-16) - Glenn Shepard
Our main character Dr. Scott James, a plastic surgeon, finds out after a minor surgery on his secretary that murder is afoot and not just one. The police and his wife believe he is the murderer as he was the only one there.  He hides and searches for answers on who is framing him.  Through this hunt he is going to find out what is going on and that terrorism ties into it all. 

 

I do not read thrillers often.  That being said, this one did keep me interested for a while. I did like the thought of the main character Dr. Scott James falling for Elizabeth especially after his wife immediately believe the worse in her husband once second after hearing about it.  What A B.I.T.C.H.! It is funny but even though she was a background character I think I hated the wife the most.  

 

The thought that everyone was blaming the doctor for every murder that kept happening seemed far fetched.  The police barely did any investigating once they got to the seen and then would start barking at Dr. James that he did it.  I had to go back and reread chapters because sometimes I did not realize I was reading another person or what they had to do with the story I was already processing.

 

Sometimes the book was too over the place other time there was just enough thrill to keep me reading. Would I read another from this series? My answer would be maybe. It was not bad it was not great.  It was just a typical thriller.

Spy of the First Person
Spy of the First Person - Sam Shepard Spy of the First Person - Sam Shepard https://msarki.tumblr.com/post/166647928548/spy-of-the-first-person-by-sam-shepard

The death of Sam Shepard creates a sudden void in the landscape of contemporary literature. This talented writer, dramatist, horseman, actor, and musician leaves as his final gift to those of us fortunate to have known his body of work a thinly veiled memoir of the first rank. In prose reminiscent at times of his good friend Patti Smith, Shepard eventually recounts the last of his precious days on earth surrounded by his loving family and friends. In one poignant sentence Shepard affirms that in a span of one year he went from being a fiercely independent and private wanderer traveling in his pickup truck to a man in a wheelchair who can barely raise his head and cannot possibly wipe his own ass. There is nothing sentimental or self-serving in this book. Shepard’s honesty on the page remains as seething as his life. A testament to one great artist, and for some, a very good friend.

I'm Still Shaking my Head
The Heiresses - Sara Shepard

Deleting this at 23%
Poor little rich girls, who have to deal with having it all handed to them with some expectations. Aww, how sad. Imagine being expected to act with decorum in public, family, work and socially ?!?! Who has to do such a horrible thing, right ? We should all be drunk, cheating, lying, manipulating, disrespectful spoiled jerks free of judgement. All these expectations make a spoiled rotten little princess upset   

Oh the horror for these precious sweet trust fund angels when when daddy steals money from the poor and puts their fortune in danger and they have to.... oh it's too ugly,  are you sitting down ? < shutter >, work. Yes they have to work !  

I hope you didn't faint. They don't have to work with the common folk at least. No, they work for their family business, in their tower, with their name on the building. 

I'm a princess, she's a princess, you're a princess. Well, now lets gets this on the table because there isn't enough specialness unicorn sprinkle powder already. Somebody or somebodies, I didn't care enough to get their names, is semi royal and oh so precious. I know this because it is mentioned over and over already.  

Snobbery, brand name dropping, social status lines, selfishness, self centered horrible characters. I couldn't dislike this book more.

Winnie-the-Pooh
Winnie-the-Pooh - A.A. Milne,Ernest H. Shepard My spouse was unimpressed with my dalliance with the Moomins and insisted that I would be better served with The Wind in the Willows and with Winnie the Pooh. I read the former a couple of months ago, and now I've done Pooh. Well, it's charming and all the old stories I remember from when I was a kid. But I don't think it's retained its charm as much as has The Wind in the Willows, and I'm not sure it's any more charming than the Moomin stories. I would, however, love to be reading this to my 5-year-old grandson, if only I could get him to sit still for a few minutes.
