A story unravels between the covers of this book that often goes untold. The story of a journey a young man takes during the nine months of expecting his first child. People say that men carry their baby differently. I can attest to that and affirm such an experience. Join me as I unfold the mental, physical and spiritual journey I experienced as I “carried” my first child and searched deep inside for answers to questions my soul never before posed.

  • I like the fact that the author was very truthful about his relationship with his father. There are a lot of young men in our World who feels the same way, but they will never talk about it.
  • This book is a great read for couples that may be expecting a child soon! Also for young men and women who plan to have a child in the future. This novel discusses more than just prenatal duties, it talks about racism, religion, & more! I definitely related to the author and many of his childhood struggles he spoke about in the early chapters and I’m sure you will too.

The Magitech Chronicles Quadrilogy Magitech Chronicles Books 14 Audible Audio Edition Chris Fox Ryan Kennard Burke Christopher T Fox Books Reviews


  • This series is just one dark mess.
    The books are filled with inconsistencies. In book 2 there is a chapter that seems to have been taken out of the timeline of the previous and following chapters. In another storyline Aran is trained, then goes on to fight battles and then is said to be lacking fitness when he goes to a dojo. Aran can fly against dragons and not get zapped, but can’t outfly a fighter piloted by a mortal. The Voria character is a total mess. Is she a leader or not? The other members of the crew are equally messed up.
    The author seems to have absolutely no military experience. And just seems to base his military writing on what he picked up on some b-rate TV show. How is a “Private” an officer?
    Everyone in this series seems to be enslaved in one way or another. And they all seem to be jumping for joy because of it. Seems like slavery is brought to a whole new level in this series. And at times, the author seems to try and justify it.
    The “gods” in this series seem to be nothing more that over powered magic users, whose influence does not even cover the galaxy. Yet the author keeps inserting “the universe” into descriptions of how powerful they are supposed to be.
    There are times when I’ve felt that this series was actually written by a number of different people who don’t really communicate well with each other and the group lacks an overall plan. Sort of like a D&D group with a GM, where all of them are writing a story and Penny just wants to kill her character so that she can go get a drink.
  • The Magitech Chronicles is one of my favorite space fantasy series. Chris is continually outdoing himself with the creativity and worldbuilding and scope of events that he builds into each installment. If you've ever wondered what it would look like to have dragons and magic mixed with spaceships and modern technology, this is the series for you. Having the first four books all together in one omnibus is a fantastic value.
  • I think this is the first time I've read anything with Dragons and Magic and Outer space and wars...though I might be mistaken...story moves along pretty quickly, but keeping track of all the spells, and 'spellrifles' and whatnot is a bit taxing.
    I finished the first of the four stories in the set...I'll keep going to the end.....
  • The narrator was very good. He has some really great voices, good tempo and vocal inflections, and I love it when narrators vocalize the small sounds like laughter and whistles.

    All four stories included in this set are very good and skillfully written.

    The characters are very individual with their own quirks, and I love that the author didn't bombard me with pages of Backstory right at the start.

    I have four major detractors that kept this from being a 5-star read (the first one is vastly more pronounced in book one, though it continues to be present in later books).

    1, significant portions of the dialogue are simply atrocious. Listening to it, I couldn't help thinking, really? Are you serious? Especially with the way the Dragons speak.

    2, length. Each book is only about 8 to 8-1/2 hours in length. Which is fine in heroic fantasy or other fantasies with relatively low stakes or scope. But with a story this expansive, I would have liked to see much longer books to really do justice to the stories. As they are written, many parts feel skipped over or rushed. Had the author spent twice the time (or even half again), the stories would have felt a lot more complete and far more immersive.

    3, I just cannot suspend disbelief when I'm expected to swallow that a dragon can be a one-hit-wonder. I don't care how powerful the magic is, nothing short of a god (or a Dragonlance) should be able to kill a dragon in a single attack.

    And 4, unless it's litRPG (which this book is not), then I just can't take you seriously when characters are referring to spells by level (as in, "normally he couldn't cast a third level spell"). Now, I admit that in the military the relative power of a weapon very well may be denoted by a "level" but in this context I just can't take it seriously.

    All that said, I really enjoyed these books. I love the way the characters develop and the way the characterization and backstories are slowly revealed over the course of the books.

    I'm definitely going to be picking up further books in this series. Hopefully book six will be released in audio soon.
  • Awesome story, a few obvious logic holes, be prepared to be hit in the face with many blatant plot devices.

    Interesting and fairly unique setting, main characters are well developed and interesting / relatable. Most other characters tend to be 1/2d in nature.

    Minor gripe for (current price), $0.99, but a VERY noticable number of spelling and grammar errors...
  • The pacing across the first three is horrible, the setting has an unbalanced feel, the growth of the characters is all over the place, and the characters themselves just feel too artificial. That said, if you get the audio book version the narrator helps make things more tolerable, and the flaws start to even out by the time you make it to the fourth book of the quadrilogy, at least enough that I'm interested in listening to book 5, and that's the point a lot of promising series have either lost my interest or start to lose it. If it weren't for needing the background information gained from the first three I'd recommend skipping them entirely, but then nothing would make any sense.
  • Love this series! Can't wait for the next book! It's easy to read, humorous, and has tech, magic, gods....I mean what else does a total geek want?!

    It's also very easy to read. I'm a relatively fast reader but was surprised how fast I got through the first 5 books. I find I actually appreciate it as I have limited time to read anymore. I used to binge read Tolkien every year for a decade and was happy if I could read all his works in a week...(glad I grew out of that haha).

    I'm anctiously waiting for the next book. This series is one I could see myself rereading.

Mother, mother-in-law, grandmother - the Pulitzer-winning columnist and #1 bestselling author reflects on the roles we play throughout our lives, sharing personal stories and advice on the special joys and complexities of middle age.

It's a little challenging to suss out why exactly it can be so magical.... All I know is The hand. The little hand that takes yours, small and soft as feathers. I'm happy our grandson does not yet have sophisticated language or a working knowledge of personal finance, because if he took my hand and said, "Nana, can you sign your 401(k) over to me," I can imagine myself thinking, well, I don't really need a retirement fund, do I? And besides, look at those eyelashes. Or the greeting. Sometimes Arthur sees me and yells "Nana!" in the way some people might say "ice cream!" and others say "shoe sale!" No one else has sounded that happy to see me in many many years.

Before blogs even existed, Anna Quindlen became a go-to writer on the joys and challenges of family, motherhood, and modern life, in her nationally syndicated column. Now she's taking the next step and going full Nana in this lively, beautiful, and moving book about being a grandmother. Quindlen offers thoughtful and telling observations about her new role, no longer mother and decision-maker but secondary character and support to the parents of her grandson. She writes, "Where I once led, I have to learn to follow." Eventually a close friend provides words to live by "Did they ask you?" 

Candid, funny, frank, and illuminating, Quindlen's singular voice has never been sharper or warmer. With the same insights she brought to motherhood in Living Out Loud and to growing older in Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, this new nana uses her own experiences to illuminate those of many others.

"Anna Quindlen portrays the challenges of parenting the second time around through her personal experience as a first-time grandparent. While she points out how the role of grandparents has evolved throughout the years, she also shows what a balancing act it has always been. A grandparent often walks a fine line when it comes to how much support and advice the parents will welcome. Soon-to-be grandparents will find this book to be an introduction to the world they are about to enter. Those who are already immersed in grandparenting should be able to relate to many of the author's personal experiences. Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for the opportunity to read and review Nanaville."

Nanaville Adventures in Grandparenting Audible Audio Edition Anna Quindlen Cynthia Farrell Brilliance Audio Books Reviews


  • I seldom write reviews here, but this time I could not resist. I cannot recall the last time I read a book that had me gasp with recognition again and again. Quindlen captures perfectly the transcendent love of grandchildren, the joy of watching your own children parent, and the careful calibration this new role requires. She is able to zoom in on the wonder of her first grandchild, while also zooming out to see him--and herself-- as part of a family chain that stretches forward and backward. My heart is full of Quindlen's literary arrows that hit their marks.
  • Author Anna Quindlen is queen of all things warm and wise, and so it’s not surprising that her ode to grandmothering hits just the right note. I was lucky and read it free and early, thanks to Random House and Net Galley, but it would have been worth the purchase price had it come down to it. This friendly little book is available to the public now.

    Quindlen’s memoir can double as a primer for her peers that are new grandparents also, but that’s not where its greatest strength is found. The most resonant aspect is that common chord, the eloquence with which she gives voice to our common experience. It makes me feel as if she and I are sitting together with our baby pictures—the grandbabies and our children that created them—and as she speaks, I am saying, “I know, right?” I chuckle as she recounts trends in the advice given by experts to new parents when our first babies were born, we were told to put them to bed on their stomachs so they wouldn’t spit up and choke to death on it; then later children slept on their sides, which seems like a safe bet either way, but babies don’t stay on their sides very long; and now babies are supposed to be safer on their backs. And she voices so well the pride we feel when an adult that we have parented turns into a wonderful parent in his own right. And I nod in agreement as she says of her toddler grandson, “No one else has sounded that happy to see me in many, many years.”

    Quindlen speaks well to the ambivalent moments as well, to the need to hold our tongues when we want to offer advice that hasn’t been requested; at the same time, there’s the relief that comes of not being in charge of all the big decisions. And I echo the outrage that she feels when some ignorant bastard suggests that our biracial grandchild is not part of our blood and bones. (A jerk in Baby Gap wants to know where she got him; she replies that she found him at Whole Foods.)

    Unequivocally joyful is the legacy grandchildren present. “I am building a memory out of spare parts…someday that memory will be all that’s left of me.”

    And then, there are the books

    “’In the great green room…’
    “’Mouse,’ Arthur says.
    “’There is a mouse,’ I say…falling down the well of memory as I speak, other children, other chairs.”

    Go ahead. Read it with dry eyes. I dare you.

    Quindlen is writing for her peers. If you aren’t a grandparent and don’t expect to become one anytime soon (or perhaps at all,) then this memoir will probably not be a magical experience for you. But the title and book jacket make it clear exactly where she is going, and I am delighted to go with her.

    Highly recommended to grandparents, and to those on the cusp.
  • Anna Quindlen portrays the challenges of parenting the second time around through her personal experience as a first-time grandparent. While she points out how the role of grandparents has evolved throughout the years, she also shows what a balancing act it has always been. A grandparent often walks a fine line when it comes to how much support and advice the parents will welcome. Soon-to-be grandparents will find this book to be an introduction to the world they are about to enter. Those who are already immersed in grandparenting should be able to relate to many of the author's personal experiences. Thanks to NetGalley and Random House for the opportunity to read and review Nanaville.
  • This is absolutely the gift to give for Mother’s Day to grandmothers—new ones, veteran ones. It doesn’t matter because it is perfect gift. Told with truth and humor, this is the story of Anna Quindlen becoming a grandmother for the first time. She explores families with different nationalities and learning different languages. She offers her sage advice about when to butt out and when to give your two cents worth. This was a very fast read and enjoyable the entire time that I was reading. The vignettes were humorous as well as realistic which make the book very readable and enjoyable. I plan to purchase a hard copy for myself so that I can read it again and again when I need to remind myself of my true role as a “Nanna.” Loved it!

  • This arrived at the perfect time as I will be entering Nanaville in less than two weeks. With her typical warm and candid style, she delivers a heartwarming and entertaining look at entering this new phase of her life. No longer the primary caregiver, she learns how to sit back, button her lip, and play a new role as her grandson's Nana.For me, it reinforced the need to "wear beige and keep your mouth shut."Respecting the parent' decisions even if it clashes with your own allows you to have more time with your grandchild. The book reads like a fresh breeze and is the perfect gift for grandma's everywhere whether newly minted or long past this stage. I want to buy this for all of my friends!

Webster's Dictionary lists the term showman as "a notably spectacular, dramatic, or effective performer." In the art of drag racing, Hubert Platt checked all boxes. Known as the "Georgia Shaker," Platt cut his motoring teeth on the long straightaways and twisty back roads of South Carolina while bootlegging moonshine. After a run-in with the law in 1958, Platt transferred his driving skills from illegal activity to sanctioned drag racing and began one of the most dominant runs in drag racing history until his retirement in 1977.

After stints in 1957, 1938, and 1962 Chevrolets, Platt's next ride was a Z11 Impala, which carried his first "Georgia Shaker" moniker. Once Chevrolet pulled out of sanctioned racing, Platt found a new home with Ford for 1964 and remained there until he hung up his helmet. Some of the cars he campaigned became icons in their own right. His factory-backed and personal machines included a 1963 Z11 Impala, 1964 Thunderbolt, 1965 Falcon, 1966 Mustang Funny Car, 1967 Fairlane 427, 1968-1/2 Cobra Jet, 1969 CJ Mustang, 1970 427 SOHC Mustang, and 1970 Boss 429 Maverick.

A 1986 NHRA Hall of Fame member, Platt's lasting legacy on the sport can’t be denied. Whether he was launching his Falcon with the door open, conducting a Ford Drag Team seminar, or posting low E.T. at the 1967 US Nationals in his Fairlane, Platt's imprint on drag racing was all-encompassing. His son and biggest fan, Allen Platt, shares his dad's iconic career in, Hubert Platt Fast Fords of the "Georgia Shaker"!
