An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

As one of the NHL's most polarizing players, Sean Avery turned the rules of professional hockey on their head. For 13 seasons, he played for some of the most storied franchises in the league, including the Detroit Red Wings, the Los Angeles Kings, and the New York Rangers, making his mark in each city as a player who was sometimes loved, sometimes despised, and always controversial. In Offside, Avery displays his trademark candor about the world of pro hockey and does for it what Jim Bouton's game-changing Ball Four did for baseball.

Avery plays many roles on and off the ice. Some are sincere and honest and some are for the crowd or media. This is a great book on the insight of a calculated athlete with dreams and interests that go beyond sport glory. Pack with a lot of "wow" factor, this is a must read/listen for hockey and pop culture fans.

Few novels have had as profound an impact on American culture as On the Road. Pulsating with the rhythms of 1950s underground America, jazz, sex, illicit drugs, and the mystery and promise of the open road, Kerouac's classic novel of freedom and longing defined what it meant to be "beat" and has inspired generations of writers, musicians, artists, poets, and seekers who cite their discovery of the book as the event that "set them free".

I finally gave a chance to this "American Classic". Though the narrator gave it his best Americana accents, the story/writing style is just plain annoying. How many characters need to be named and decribed ("that bum, with the baggy pants, that reminded me of your father..." ? Imagine walking through life and over describing every event <from flipping on a light switch or chewing a granola bar>Also, had anyone kept track of Sal's spending? He starts off with $50 but spends a lot on beer, smokes, bus, apple pie with ice cream, etc. I had to stop listening. Thank you Audible for refunding my credit.
I love visiting the States, traveling the lesser known roads, and was looking forward to an audible adventure. Jack, let me down.

The Nazis presented themselves as warriors against moral degeneracy. Yet, as Norman Ohler's gripping best seller reveals, the entire Third Reich was permeated with drugs: cocaine, heroin, morphine and, most of all, methamphetamines, or crystal meth, used by everyone from factory workers to housewives, and crucial to troops; resilience - even partly explaining German victory in 1940.

Loved it. If you think you know a lot about WWII, this will throw a new twist on the motives of the past.
