This book will make you want to drink wine. It will make you want to eat. It will make you want to learn French. It will make you want to move to France. It will make you root for the author. Most importantly, it will make you want to take a chance and pursue your dreams. And like a great bottle of wine, you'll be sad when it has to end.

Read these Moth books (there are three of them). And then buy copies for every reader in your life, because it is impossible to not enjoy them.

canbku Love the Moth!

I've now finished two out of the three Moth books, and I'm about two thirds through the last one. I'm going to be awfully sad when I run out of Moth stories to read, which will be either today or tomorrow. No one should have to run out of Moth stories.

I hated this book. The only reason I didn't bail on it was because I was at work and had nothing else to do, so I RELUCTANTLY finished it. The first third of the book is pretty interesting, as it tells of Taylor's welfare schemes. But it barely touches upon the political backlash, and the rest of the book tells the background story of her and her family. The problem is that they weren't the least bit interesting, and so, neither was this book.

I was enjoying this, and then I came to the part where I learned that Hedges is a Jill Stein supporter, and doesn't think that Bernie Sanders is far enough to the left. What this means is that Hedges is not to be taken seriously, and I'm not going to waste any more time on this nonsense.

What is the best way of choosing a title? You could try the popular Something's Something approach--Midnight's Children, Schindler's List, Homer's Daughter; equations such as author Andy Martin's useful 'number + noun + 'of' + noun' (e.g. Seven Pillars of Wisdom); and various random title generators (some are very specific, such as the online Malcolm Gladwell Book Generator which includes 'The Cheers Effect: How and Why Everybody Knows Your Name).

Choosing a title for your newly finished masterpiece can be a tricky process. Ernest Hemingway toyed with I Have Committed Fornication But That Was In Another Country, and Besides the Wench Is Dead before sensibly settling on A Farewell to Arms.

The friend of a wealthy woman agrees to take in her two stepchildren. There's only one catch; every time the children get a little bit agitated, they burst into flames.

If you've never listened to The Moth Radio Hour, you need to reevaluate your priorities in life. You also need to read this book, which is one of three collections of Moth stories

There's no word to describe this other than "genius." I added dozens of books to my TBR based on the authors who contributed to this collection. Includes pieces such as Tom O'Donnell's "I'm Sorry I Bit You During My Job Interview," "Famous Authors Reply to Your Unsolicited Dick Pic" by Jamie Cricks, and Eric Hague's "Our Daughter Isn't a Selfish Brat; Your Son Just Hasn't Read Atlas Shrugged."

This was the New York that would kick your ass until the real you showed up, because it wanted the real you, and it would keep at you until it got it.

This was the New York that would give you humiliation in one hand and a tremendous gift in the other, and you had to take them both--you couldn't have one without the other.

With a brief exception in the preface, the bomb doesn't go off until 26% of the way through the book. Until then, the authors provide a lot of backstory and "setting of the scene." Too much so, in fact (do I really need to know the entire story of why the Olympic games chose Atlanta, or the outcomes of the sports being played?). But be patient, because once the bomb goes off, this book becomes very, VERY interesting.

Cortg Thanks for the review! Sounds like a great NF read 😀 3w
Suet624 Thanks for the warning. 3w
keithmalek @Suet624 Some of the background information is important, like how Jewell was a bit overzealous when it came to policing. But some of the background information was useless. I definitely recommend this one though. 3w

That's interesting, considering that the bombing took place in 1996, and Saving Private Ryan didn't come out until 1998. I guess he had a time machine.
