    Claudette Colvin:Twice Toward Justice By Phillip Hoose 

    7011976Claudette Colvin:Twice Toward Justice
    By Phillip Hoose
    Narrated by Channie Waites
    Length: 3 hrs and 38 mins
    Release date: 12-10-09
    Publisher: Brilliance Audio

    There was a girl before Rosa Parks that refused to give up her seat to a white person in Montgomery, Alabama. She’s all but lost to history and this is her story of the struggle for basic human rights, in the era of Jim Crow Laws.

    Before I go any further I just want to say it is extremely sad that human beings can treat each other this way in the first place.  If you and I ran a race and I won, I would celebrate and maybe let you know I won a few times, but would soon move on because ONLY in that moment was I better in some aspect than you.  Who knows run it again and I just might lose.   I can never think of a time where I, as a whole, am better than anyone else.  I may know more about a certain topic than someone else, but that and winning the race does not make me better than anyone else.

    This country (USA) has a horrible history of treating people as less than human because of nothing other than the color of their skin.  What’s even more sad is that this still goes on today.  People, it has to stop.

    Well that’s my soapbox speech, the people that needed to hear it probably didn’t, so I guess I’ll just talk about this book.

    Claudette refused to give up her seat to a white woman.  If that white woman were pregnant, disabled, or just needed a seat badly I could see where this could be bad.  But this particular white woman was none of those only that she felt she was better than someone with darker skin color.  This still shouldn’t be a reason to throw a teenage girl into jail.

    What followed is that Claudette was not seen as a hero for standing up for her rights, instead she was shunned.  Claudette became pregnant while still a teen and was seen by the black community as not fit to represent.  So 9 months later Rosa Parks did the same and became that heroe.

    This book is Claudette’s story.  She may have made some mistakes, but we still have to remember that even though she didn’t become the hero, she still struggled.

    Channie Waites does a beautiful job as narrator, fully enveloping the listener in Claudette’s voice and psyche.

     

    Publisher’s Summary
    National Book Award, Young People’s Literature, 2009

    On March 2, 1955, a slim, bespectacled teenager refused to give up her seat to a white woman on a segregated bus in Mont-gomery, Alabama. Shouting “It’s my constitutional right!” as police dragged her off to jail, Claudette Colvin decided she’d had enough of the Jim Crow segregation laws that had angered and puzzled her since she was a young child.

    But instead of being celebrated, as Rosa Parks would be when she took the same stand nine months later, Claudette found herself shunned by many of her classmates and dismissed as an unfit role model by the black leaders of Montgomery. Undaunted, she put her life in danger a year later when she dared to challenge segregation yet again – as one of four plaintiffs in the landmark busing case Browder v. Gayle.

    Based on extensive interviews with Claudette Colvin and many others, Phillip Hoose presents the first in-depth account of a major, yet little-known, civil rights figure whose story provides a fresh perspective on the Montgomery bus protest of 1955 – 56. Historic figures like Martin Luther King, Jr., and Rosa Parks play important roles, but center stage belongs to the brave, bookish girl whose two acts of courage were to affect the course of American history.

    The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band  by Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars 

    25378The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band
    by Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars
    448 pages
    Published by New York;Regan Boks,2001.

    My initial response to this book was, “wow what a journey. total disregard for their health and the law.total rock and roll debauchery.”  That is not near enough for a review, so I guess I’ll go into detail.  However, that is a great summary.

    This book chronicles the rise and plateau of one of the partyingest bands in the 80s.  I’m pretty sure these guys read the Led Zeppelin biography, and said, “Is that all? Here, hold my beer.”

    From drugs to groupies they went through it all.  I’m pretty sure that excess to us would be the minimum required.  All rumors you’ve heard about the band are probably true, but only the tip of the iceberg.  This book takes you under the surface and into the slime below with no holds barred.

    Many of the chapters cover a different aspect of the band’s rise to fame and each member, as well as other people along the line tell their sides of the story.  All the stories seem to have one central theme: the party never stops.  The party even went on when one member dies, and comes back to life in the back of an ambulance.

    Nothing should surprise you in this book, but it will.

     

    Publisher’s Summary

    Mötley Crüe’s bestselling The Dirt—penned with rock chronicler extraordinaire Neil Strauss—set a new bar for rock ‘n’ roll memoirs. A genuine cultural phenomenon, this turbocharged blockbuster, with more than half a million copies in print, celebrates thirty wild years with rock’s most infamous band.

    Agnostic: A Spirited Manifesto By Lesley Hazelton 

    25894086 (1)Agnostic: A Spirited Manifesto
    By Lesley Hazelton
    Narrated by Lesley Hazleton
    Length: 4 hrs and 6 mins
    Release date: 04-05-16
    Publisher: Penguin Audio

    Being a full-fledged ordained atheist, I was very intrigued by this book.  Growing up I was forced to attend either a Baptist Church or a Presbyterian Church.  I had no say in the matter and I’m not so sure that the Presbyterian church attendance served as my punishment for staying out too late on Saturdays.  So what did I learn?  Well, hard to say other than If you party to hard god will force you to sit in a creaky old building where women in their 90s will sing loudly and out of key to force you to stop sinning.

    So before I became an atheist, I had declared myself an Agnostic.  I thought there could have been an intelligence but that intelligence had yet to show his/herself in any form of organized religion in the United States.  I also felt that well, if Jesus died for my sins, then I’d better get to sinning or else he would have died in vain.    That’s what forced religion taught me.

    Later in life I determined no divine deity could ever be in control because if so he/she were some cruel deity and enjoyed watching his/her creation suffer.  Look what they did to their own son in Christianity.  Look what was allowed to happen to the Jews through the ages.  How the African brought over to serve the white man followed the white man’s god is beyond me.  How can god let little children suffer and die?  Yeah my ranting could go on, but this is about Lesley Hazleton’s book.

    Hazelton is able to explain why agnostics, and even atheists, can be proud of who they are.  So what is it to be agnostic.  Simply put,  just to be able to admit you have no idea what the answers to life’s great mysteries are, but to always be seeking those same answers.  Hazelton presents her case by bringing in science, psychology, philosophy and of course, theology.

    If you are looking for an intriguing philosophical discussion on life, the universe, and everything, you could definitely give this book a place in your time on this earth.

     

    Publisher’s Summary

    A widely admired writer on religion celebrates agnosticism as the most vibrant and engaging – and, ultimately, the most honest – stance toward the mysteries of existence.

    One in four Americans rejects any affiliation with organized religion, and nearly half of those under 30 describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious”. But as the airwaves resound with the haranguing of preachers and pundits, who speaks for the millions who find no joy in whittling the wonder of existence to a simple yes/no choice?

    Lesley Hazleton does. In this provocative, brilliant book, she gives voice to the case for agnosticism, breaks it free of its stereotypes as watered-down atheism or amorphous “seeking”, and celebrates it as a reasoned, revealing, and sustaining stance toward life. Stepping over the lines imposed by rigid conviction, she draws on philosophy, theology, psychology, science, and more to explore, with curiosity and passion, the vital role of mystery in a deceptively information-rich world; to ask what we mean by the search for meaning; to invoke the humbling yet elating perspective of infinity; to challenge received ideas about death; and to reconsider what “the soul” might be.

    Inspired and inspiring, Agnostic recasts the question of belief not as a problem to be solved but as an invitation to an ongoing, open-ended adventure of the mind.

    “Origin” By Dan Brown 

    36348699Origin
    By Dan Brown
    Narrated by Paul Michael
    Series: Robert Langdon, Book 5
    Length: 18 hrs and 9 mins
    Release date: 10-03-17
    Publisher: Random House Audio

    Once again Robert Langdon is out seeking clues in art and trying to solve one of life’s mysteries.  This time around the clues are not from some ancient master, but rather from one of his former students.

    Edmond Kirsch a billionaire futurist, pretty much Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Richard Branson rolled into one, has found the great answers to the 2 questions that have stymied the philosophers and clerics through the centuries; “Where do we come from?” and “Where are we going?”  Kirsch has made this discovery and knows it will blow apart religion as we know it.  To give the world’s religious leaders a heads up he presents his findings to a 3 of the most powerful of religious leaders.  That may have sealed his doom.  Without religion the major religions lose their control over humanity.  Kirsch presents his findings to the public but before he can reveal the final results he is assassinated by a religious zealot.

    Robert Langdon is in the audience for the live event and finds himself following Kirsch’s clues to release the presentation to the world which will reveal why religion is dead.  To do so Langdon follows clues left behind by his former student.  The action takes place through many famous landmarks in Spain.  The reality of Dan Brown’s writing lies in his use and detailed descriptions of these landmarks and their use in pushing the story line forward.

    While this book is not as thrilling as some of Brown’s previous Robert Langdon’s books, it does have a lot of fun in the solving of the clues.  The letdown in the story for me was the answers, as revealed by Kirsch, to those 2 big questions.  It was like a catch and release fishing trip; the thrill is in the hunt but the find was a let down in that you couldn’t enjoy the final product.

    Paul Michael does an excellent job of narrating and presenting the action as well as the thought processes of Robert Langdon.  I nearly Tom Hanks as Langdon (in the movies), and fully accepted Paul Michael as the puzzle solving professor.

    All in all a fun book, but the end was a bit of a let down.

    Publisher’s Summary
    Where do we come from?

    Where are we going?

    The stunningly inventive new novel from the world’s most popular thriller writer.

    Bilbao, Spain

    Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology and religious iconology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend a major announcement – the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a 40-year-old billionaire and futurist whose dazzling high-tech inventions and audacious predictions have made him a renowned global figure. Kirsch, who was one of Langdon’s first students at Harvard two decades earlier, is about to reveal an astonishing breakthrough…one that will answer two of the fundamental questions of human existence.

    As the event begins, Langdon and several hundred guests find themselves captivated by an utterly original presentation, which Langdon realizes will be far more controversial than he ever imagined. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Reeling and facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced into a desperate bid to escape Bilbao. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch to stage the provocative event. Together they flee to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret.

    Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme religion, Langdon and Vidal must evade a tormented enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace itself…and who will stop at nothing to silence Edmond Kirsch. On a trail marked by modern art and enigmatic symbols, Langdon and Vidal uncover clues that ultimately bring them face to face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

    Origin is Dan Brown’s most brilliant and entertaining novel to date.

    Dan Brown is the author of numerous number one international best sellers, including The Da Vinci Code, Inferno, The Lost Symbol, Angels & Demons, Deception Point, and Digital Fortress.

    “The Heaven Makers” By Frank Herbert 

    51iOh84hYML._SL500_The Heaven Makers
    By: Frank Herbert
    Narrated by: Scott Brick
    Length: 7 hrs and 35 mins
    Release date: 01-29-14
    Publisher: Blackstone Audio, Inc.

    Frank Herbert had me hooked with the Dune series, so what else can he deliver? The Heaven Makers, read by Scott Brick, is definitely an intriguing story.

    Aliens are watching us.  But not for any reason other than as an entertainment source.    The thing is though, they are to watch but not interfere.  Our wars, our tragedies, our growth and pretty much all of our lives are recorded as full sensory movies the be enjoyed by these aliens.  I love how the watchers look like “short Bela Lugosis.”

    The story goes that we on Earth are being manipulated and recorded for the entertainment of a species of immortal beings. Not cool, man.  Before anyone can check in on the watchers (yeah, no one is watching the watchers) mankind has been seriously manipulated to the extent that our destiny is no longer our own.

    Scott Brick delivers yet another audiobook performance with the perfection I expect from him each and every time.

    Publisher’s Summary
    Immortal aliens have observed Earth forcenturies, making full sensory movies of wars, natural disasters, and horrifichuman activities – all to relieve their endless boredom. When they finally becomejaded by ordinary, run-of-the-mill tragedies, they find ways to create theirown disasters, just to amuse themselves.

    But interfering with human activities isforbidden, and the authorities have been known to check on these matters fromtime to time. However, by the time Investigator Kelexel arrives to investigate,the trouble has been going on for a long, long time – and things are reallygetting out of hand.

    “The Haunting Scripts of Bachelors Grove: If Only Death Meant the End” by Brian K Morris 

    61UO0J1znhL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_The Haunting Scripts of Bachelors Grove: If Only Death Meant the End
    by Brian K Morris (Author)
    Paperback: 324 pages
    Publisher: Freelance Words (January 25, 2018)
    Charles D. Moisant (Introduction)
    Trevor Erick Hawkins (Cover Design)

    Another author I’m a fan of,  Brian K. Morris, seems to dabble in just about everything.  He’s got superhero books, he’s done some comic books (including the series “The Haunting Tales of Bachelors Grove” which created the need for this book,  He’s got some mashup humor/horror stories and a whole lot more.  The diversity alone should get you to read his stuff.

    I had first met him when he set up a booth at a comic/gaming convention I helped create.  The first thing I read from Mr. Morris was a story about Bloodshot, a Valient comics mercenary/superhero, from there I knew I needed more.  I have since purchased many other of his books and will soon have them all reviewed here, at least if he slows down on the writing so I can catch up.  But I don’t see that happening.

    The Bachelors Grove Cemetery comic book series is a project I feel I’m a part of, well because I am.  When I heard that he and Charles D. Moisant (the craziest man in comic books) had a Kickstarter campaign to launch the project, I jumped in.  As a result they have released issue #1 and are working on many more.  To top it off, since I contributed, I will be the subject of one of the stories in an upcoming issue.  The series is very reminiscent of the old horror comics like, “Eerie,” “Creepy” and others from back in the day.  I can’t wait to read my story.

    This book is about the creation of that series with a couple of extra stories that fit in the same style.  That may be one of the reasons I picked this up, hoping my story would get the pre published treatment.  But, alas, no, I still have to wait.

    One of the recommendations I can make for this book is for any future writer and especially a comic book writer.  Brian discusses the writing process and even publishes some of the stories from the first comic in their script form.  This is nice to see how an artist would receive the script and turn it into a comic.

    The last part of the book contains some stories along the same vein of the comics but may be a bit long to include in the comic book.  The stories all center around one of America’s most haunted places, Bachelors Grove Cemetery. One of the stories felt a bit too real and I think the next time I see Mr. Morris, I may have to frisk him for daggers.

    If you are a writer, a comic book reader, or just love good horror stories then make sure you pick up this book, it has a bit of everything.

    Publisher’s Summary

    Based on the real-life haunted cemetery, the book features comic scripts from The Haunting Tales of Bachelors Grove comic book, as well as advice on how to write comic horror and break into the independent comics market. The book also contains three brand new prose stories of mature horror, based on the Bachelors Grove legends

    “Dark Disciple: Star Wars” By Christie Golden 

    25615034Dark Disciple: Star Wars
    By: Christie Golden, Katie Lucas (Foreword)
    Narrated by: Marc Thompson
    Series: Star Wars, Book 4
    Length: 11 hrs and 11 mins
    Release date: 07-07-15
    Publisher: Random House Audio

    Any fan of the Star Wars Clone Wars series will enjoy finding out what happens to Quinlan Vos and Assaj Ventriss.

    In this audiobook performance of the novel, Marc Thompson delivers the goods with great vocalizations bringing all the characters to life. His vocal impersonations of Count Dooku and Yoda make the audiobook worth hearing. The music and sound effects mixed in create an ambiance that plunges the listener into the Star Wars universe.

    Publisher’s Summary
    Based on unproduced episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this new novel features Asajj Ventress, former Sith apprentice turned bounty hunter and one of the great antiheroines in Star Wars history.

    The only way to bring down the Sith’s most dangerous warrior may be to join forces with the dark side.

    In the war for control of the galaxy between the armies of the dark side and the Republic, former Jedi Master turned ruthless Sith Lord Count Dooku has grown ever more brutal in his tactics. Despite the powers of the Jedi and the military prowess of their clone army, the sheer number of fatalities is taking a terrible toll. And when Dooku orders the massacre of a flotilla of helpless refugees, the Jedi Council feels it has no choice but to take drastic action: targeting the man responsible for so many war atrocities, Count Dooku himself.

    But the ever-elusive Dooku is dangerous prey for even the most skilled hunter. So the council makes the bold decision to bring both sides of the Force’s power to bear – pairing brash Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos with infamous one-time Sith acolyte Asajj Ventress. Though Jedi distrust for the cunning killer who once served at Dooku’s side still runs deep, Ventress’ hatred for her former master runs deeper. She’s more than willing to lend her copious talents as a bounty hunter – and assassin – to Vos’ quest.

    Together Ventress and Vos are the best hope for eliminating Dooku – as long as the emerging feelings between them don’t compromise their mission. But Ventress is determined to have her retribution and at last let go of her dark Sith past. Balancing the complicated emotions she feels for Vos with the fury of her warrior’s spirit, she resolves to claim victory on all fronts – a vow that will be mercilessly tested by her deadly enemy… and her own doubt.

    “Daredevil, Vol. 1: Guardian Devil” by Kevin Smith & Joe Quesada 

    32035223“Daredevil, Vol. 1: Guardian Devil”
    by Kevin Smith & Joe Quesada
    Published October 26th 2015 by Graphic Audio
    (first published January 3rd 1998)
    SeriesDaredevil (1998) (Collected Editions) #1, Daredevil (1998) (Single Issues) #1-8, Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novels Collection #17, Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novels

    Wow, what can I say about this book? I think I can tackle this review in 3 aspects.

    First the GraphicAudio promise of “A Movie in your Mind” is definitely kept. You can hear through Matt Murdoch’s heightened senses. Dr. Strange opening a portal and Spider-Man’s web slinging are all brought to life in this outstanding production.

    The second aspect of the audiobook is the writers, Kevin Smith and Joe Quesada, bring to life an adventure in the Marvel Universe, involving the Daredevil that not only stays within the continuity of the Marvel heroes, but also throws in the humor that is Kevin Smith, including Star Wars references and all.

    The third and final aspect in this summary is that this is a story that contains more adult situations, from murder to unfaithful spouses, than a normal comic book so be prepared.

    Publisher’s Summary

    Winner of AudioFile Best Audio Drama & Earphones Award in 2016!

    A scared teenager on the run. An infant child some say is humanity’s savior. A former lover whose life is now hobbled by a terrible secret. A law partner accused of a horrible crime. A city being overcome by an inscrutable menace. They need a guardian. Someone to protect them. Someone with faith in them. They need Daredevil. Guardian Devil found Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) confidently transitioning from writing acclaimed screenplays to comics that hit the top of the sales charts and critics’ lists.

    ADVISORY: Due to subject matter, Guardian Devil contains scenes that may not be suitable for listeners aged seventeen or under.
