Spotlight of a fool, wiitty, timely and unabashed

Unfortunately Fans of Keith Olbermann will find nothing new here as most of the book is directly lifted from excerpts of his Videos for GQ, with sprinkled in extra commentary for good measure,

But it still remains A first rate documentation and Timeline of a very unexpected turn of events in United States History. When we elected a Moron to be President and the most Powerful man in the world,

The author Narrated the book himself and did a wonderful job, and behind these words is one of the most passionate Commentators of our time. Never afraid to speak up & speak out while others fear to speak,

Olbermann was one of the first in media to express his thoughts about the fitness of the Presidential Candidate in question during his GQ series The Closer. After the election he & his staff made the decision to continue on under the name The Resistance.

Where he details the Run up to and the immediate aftermath of the 2016 General Election in which Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump and the craziness that has ensued,

With Well researched commentaries that give voice to a large segment of the US population.
(His GQ web series has received over
300 million views.)

RESIST! REMOVE! Peace.

Simply Entertaining and Amazing (Brilliant)

An Excellent book that continues to expand on the unique universe created by the master of magic J.K. Rowling,
Just as good as the previous 5 books but as stated before the audiobook narration was only just ok, the narrator has a great voice cadence but his Hermione and other female characters leaves a lot to be desired, in tone and pitch anyway,
Overall it doesn't take away from the experience and the performance was still very well done,
This book was very detailed compared to the movie and interestingly ALOT was  left out as this book is very extremely long compared to the previous books, the movie was decent but this book explains a lot more as it's over 3x longer and is ultimately and infinitely better than the movie version. Highly recommended

Absolutely fantastic Book

A Hugo Award Winner for Best Novel in (2009)
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Is an imaginative tale with a fable-like quality.  When first reading this wonderfully dark but playful fantasy Book, I instantly discovered that I liked it a lot.  It takes a graveyard to raise a child. This is a story that's magical, sweet and imaginative, which (in the traditional style of the Brothers Grimm) started with a triple homicide. It's starts very dark, disturbing, violent and has hints of Horror. Interspersed with ghosts and goblins, But also has good moral values and story that has a fantasy feel to it.

Highly recommended. A very good book
Very talented and Well Narrated by the Author Neil Gaiman himself, and a full cast recording.

Surperb, expertly Crafted

In third installment of a currently four book series of the Robert Langdon franchise by Dan Brown, following "Angels & Demons"
"The DaVinci Code" and "Inferno" those were also adapted into movies by Ron Howard, Starring Tom Hanks why this has not is beyond me,

Set in Washington D.C. Harvard Professor of Symbology Robert Langdon is off for another adventure, weaving the history of the Freemasons and U.S. with thriller and Suspense, in what turned out to be a great book, Great Narration, Definitely Recommended.

The excellence continues in part three....

Excellent book, just as good as the first 2 as before Narration was just ok, he has a great voice cadence but his Hermione and other female characters leaves a lot to be desired, overall doesn't take away from the experience and the performance was very well done, still more detailed and interesting than the movie's which are great also but could not fit everything in.
