2-0 out of 5 stars If you like straight Aesop's fables, this is ok
This is a CD of straight Aesop's fables followed by the narrator trying to turn the moral into common language. Aesop's read better than they listen - at least for me. My kids really didn't like it because the stories are short (only about 1 minute) and the "real life applications" didn't make sense to them or me. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it unless you just want somebody to read the stories to you. ... Read more

Product Description
Ghostbusters (titled on-screen as Ghost Busters) is a 1984 science-fiction comedy film written by co-stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis about three eccentric New York City parapsychologists-turned-ghost exterminators. The film was released in the United States on June 8, 1984 and like several films of the era, teamed Aykroyd and/or Ramis with headliner Bill Murray. It was produced and directed by Ivan Reitman, who also directed Stripes, and stars Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis, Rick Moranis, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson. With inflation adjustments, the film's original release grossed over $500 million US dollars counting sales in just the U.S., making it domestically one of the highest-grossing films of 1984 and also domestically the 31st highest-grossing film. It was followed by a sequel, Ghostbusters II (1989), and two animated television series, The Real Ghostbusters (later renamed Slimer! And the Real Ghostbusters) and Extreme Ghostbusters. Ramis, who co-wrote the first two films, has confirmed that a script for a potential third film ? a spin-off sequel with the original cast appearing only as minor characters ? is being developed by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, the writing team best known for their work on Curb Your Enthusiasm and the American version of The Office. Producer Judd Apatow (a producer of the Ramis-directed Year One) is also slated to be involved. ... Read more

Stone Soup for the World is a set of 100 stories about compassion and volunteerism. From the intro by Colin Powell to the story of Ms.Larned's young brother, the whole book was a joy to read. I especially loved theNelson Mandela and Paul Newman stories. This book has stirred me to be abetter person and to help others. I recently walked in honor of my aunt whopassed away from cancer and raised money doing it. It felt good just asthese stories felt good. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to peoplefrom 9 to 99.

Product Description
Charles Blakey is a young black man whose life is slowly crumbling. His parents are dead, he can't find a job, he drinks too much, and his friends have begun to desert him. Worst of all, he's fallen behind on the mortgage payments for the beautiful home that's belonged to his family for generations. When a stranger offers him $50,000 in cash to rent out his basement for the summer, Charles needs the money too badly to say no. He knows that the stranger must want something more than a basement view. Sure enough, he has a very particular--and bizarre--set of requirements, and Charles tries to satisfy him without getting lured into the strangeness. But he sees an opportunity to understand secrets of the white world, and his summer with a man in his basement turns into a journey into inconceivable worlds of power and manipulation, and unimagined realms of humanity. Richly textured and compelling, THE MAN IN MY BASEMENT is a new literary pinnacle from an acknowledged American master. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A short but not easy read definitely worth your while
This is quite cerebral, and yet infiitely readable.Mosely uses the first portion of the book to get you well acquainted with Charles Blakey, his situation, his thinking, and his failings while developing the strange relationship to be formed with the mysterious Addison Bennet.There is little action, but lots of movement as the reader realizes there's a definite power struggle going on here, and it's difficult to be sure who really is in control.The real meat is in the philosophical discussions between the two characters, but there also is a subtle feeling of suspense as one roots for Charles to find the strength to turn his life around.This is Walter Mosley at his most profound.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Intresting Read
This book was very intresting.It kept my attention.It is uneventful in places, and by mid book or so, I predictedthe ending.But the ideas in it are creative and intriguing.It was narrated well too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Topic - But
This was a great concept, and Mosley certainly can write, but I wonder if he should have let this one incubate for a while longer.He ended up with 3 stars but was close to 2 until the somewhat satisfying ending.

2-0 out of 5 stars different but disappointing
This very different story piqued my interest at the start. Charles Blakey's life seems to be going nowhere, with financial problems mounting up. Then, a strange man (Annisten Bennet) appears and offers Blakey a lot of money to stay for a short time in his basement. The mystery behind Bennet, and Blakey's search for himself through his non-slave American roots impelled me to keep listening to this audio-book. Ultimately, I was not satisfied either with Bennet's secret surfacing not the transformation of Blakey as he deals with Bennet and other issues in his life. This unorthodox story was ultimately neither believable not engaging. Even a good reader could not rescue this somewhat disappointing short novel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Different and Brilliant
I have to say that I'm a recent Mosley reader and I really loved this book the story is very different than anything I have read from Mosley and in my opinionshows how two very different people can be placed into a situation in which they open up their deepest secrets to each other and in the end are redeemed for their sins. A must read!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Walter Mosley's Appeal
Fiction writer Walter Mosely takes yet another daring turn with Working On The Chain Gang. This slim volume is his excursion into non-fiction and political commentary.

Mosley uses concise, plainly spoken language tourge for the study of Black American History as a map of the coming timesfor all Americans in the global economy.

Wage Slavery, the villificationof the youth, and the commodification of humanity are just some of theissues that were once almost exclusively restricted to Black Americans butare slowly becoming concerns of us all.

Mosley's eye is daring and hiswords speak from an unflinching, sometimes necessarily abrasive, truth thatharkens back to the words of early American printer/abolishionist DavidWalker's Appeal.

Though there are moments of extreme pessimism andunformed solutions to the problems he illustrates, Mosley's Chain Gang is amore than apt blueprint for the new revolution. ... Read more

Product Description
From the bestselling author illustrator team of the 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation comes the truly gory tale of the historical Dracula

The Dracula myth has sparked a legacy of endlessly entertaining creepy tales. The fictional character, originally penned by Bram Stoker, was inspired by and named after a real-life fiend-Prince Vlad Dracula, the fifteenth-century ruler of Wallachia-a man infamous for massacring and impaling his enemies. In brilliant four-color illustrations, Vlad the Impaler tells the ghastly prince's life story from his seizure as a boy by the Turkish Sultan, to his love life, to his maniacal attempts to retain power regardless of whose throat he must slit.

From the bestselling writer and illustrator team who brought us The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation-hailed by Stan Lee as "beautifully and compellingly written and illustrated. . . . It will surely set the standard for all future works of contemporary history, graphic or otherwise"-this graphic novel, based on a true story, is replete with gory details of torture tactics. Ideal for readers who made 30 Days of Night and World War Z bestsellers, the combination of riveting legend and blood-and-guts drawings will be an anticipated addition to the graphic novel fan's library. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Kids comic book and nothing more
I was hoping for a scholarly book on Vlad Tepes, unfortuneatly this was nothing but a long comic book. If you love comics then this might be good for you, but if you are looking for historical non-fiction then look somewhere else.

1-0 out of 5 stars Comic book
Very disappointed!I did not realize that this was a graphic novel or comic book.The text is also too small to read on the iPad without zooming in on each page.Not sure if it is a good story or historical account because I could not get past reading a comic book when I was looking for a novel.It would have been nice to preview a few pages before purchasing.

5-0 out of 5 stars There is no hero running through the book's pages
Vlad the Impaler was real. Also known as Vlad Dracula, he was a ruler of Wallachia in the 15th century and became famous for his use of impalement as a form of execution. A controversial person, he is even today still considered by some to be an example of leadership. However, most everyone else considers him nothing less than a terror. And of course, the name he used for himself, Dracula, is more famous as a fictional vampire.

This slim graphic novel, which has colored pictures on every page, starts in Vlad's childhood and goes on to his death. He is definitely not shown in a positive light. There is no hero running through the book's pages. Vlad is a vengeful, murderous, raping, depraved psychopath. He finds no redemption by the end. It's basically a no-frills story of his life, and it's gory...yes, it's gory. This book is not for the sensitive reader. To be fair, it's not as gory as it could be, considering what Vlad did, but it still has more than enough to turn a reader's stomach.

As a child, Vlad lives with his good-looking brother Radu as hostages in the Ottoman Empire. Radu takes to this new culture like a duck to water, converting to Islam and becoming lovers with the sultan's son. He's a gentle spirit and tries to reason with Vlad's dangerous anger. It's no use. Vlad resents where he lives, hates people who aren't Christian, and wants revenge against anyone who's wronged him, or whom he believes has wronged him. He watches people get tortured and he kills animals because he can. During this time, his father and other brother are murdered by their enemies, which only makes Vlad more ferocious and raging.

In adulthood, Vlad takes over Wallachia. Being in power only lets him take his depravity to new heights. He slaughters men, women, and children to show people that his rule is absolute. Sometimes he kills for revenge, sometimes as a matter-of-fact business, and sometimes out of pure enjoyment. It's his enjoying the torture and death that's the most disturbing. Throughout the book, he becomes progressively worse. One of the most brutal and stark images comes about halfway through the story, when one of Vlad's helpers looks up in horror at all the impaled people. There aren't any words and there don't have to be.

Vlad eventually dies in battle, his head held up. After this, the fictional Count Dracula makes a cameo, complaining, "Frankly, I'm ashamed of my accomplishments compared to those of this so-called human being...." Count Dracula lets readers know the real Dracula was far more evil than the fictional one.

-- Danica Davidson

4-0 out of 5 stars VLAD THE IMPALER
VLAD THE IMPALER is a historical piece about Vlad Dracula. A fifteenth century prince of Wallachia--Southern Romania--known for his brutal and cruel reign; he was called "the Impaler" because of his propensity to impale his enemies and showcase the victims to the public.

Vlad Dracula's modern legend is one that is much more literary than factual. His name was borrowed by Bram Stoker for his legendary vampire Dracula; probably a case of the man more evil than his literary counterpart. Vlad sat upon the throne of Wallachia no less than three times. As a boy he was a captive of the Ottoman Empire and as an adult his overriding concern was power.
VLAD THE IMPALER covers the terrain of Vlad's life with a powerful simplicity. He is portrayed as a monster. The language is simple and the dialogue competent. The artwork runs from colorful and bold to dark and muted depending on the deeds of the characters.

Vlad Dracula is neither antagonist nor protagonist. He is simply the story, and the people around him--a faithful friend and advisor, a wife, a brother--serve as the humanity. He is a monster filled with rage, lust, hatred, and paranoia. A man with great boldness, but a man burdened with a lack of decency.

VLAD THE IMPALER is a disturbing yet intriguing story. It only grazes the man's life, but it is startling. It tells a story of barbarity, love, faith, and betrayal. It is told with style, but it creates more questions than it answers. It is a story that will entertain, but also lead the reader into a deeper survey of a man whose name is known, but who--as a man--is mostly unknown.
