  • Whiteout

    Like no other suspense author in his genre, Follett reinvents the thriller with each new storyline. But nothing matches the intricate, knife-edge drama of Whiteout.

    B. W. Larsen says: "Ken Follett goes Danielle Steeel"
    "A little slow"
    Overall

    I have read all of Ken Follett's book and looked forward to this one. Unfortunately it takes a long time to get interesting. It was okay but not great.

  • Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

    On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war.

    I'm sorry I waited so long to listen to this book. So rich with details that bring history to life.

    Twenty-eight-year-old Sean McGillin is the picture of health, until he fractures his leg while in-line skating in New York City's Central Park. Within 24 hours of his surgery, he dies.

    Martin says: "A bit too predictable"
    "Wish it was better"
    Overall

    I've read most of Robin Cook's books and while they are enjoyable most seem to have the same plot - our hero against the big bad managed care company. How about something a little different?

    On a summer night, an attractive woman hurtles north in a blue Peugeot with an address in her pocket, while, back in London, a desperate man leaves a late-night phone message on his brother's answering machine. By sunrise, the woman is found in her car, shot, execution-style, through the head.

    Shaliali says: "Very, Very Abridged"
    "Unabridged only!!"
    Overall

    Robinson's books should never be abridged. All of the best storytelling is gone.

    Widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel, New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst takes listeners back to the early days of World War II for a dramatic novel of intrigue and suspense.

    I couldn't get past the first few hours. Too boring!

    Jon Stewart, host of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Daily Show, and his coterie of patriots deliver a hilarious look at American government.

    Connie says: "Runs hot and cold..but when it's hot...it's hot"
    "Only OK - not great"
    Overall

    I like the Daily Show. I really like Jon Stewart but after awhile I got tired of this. They hit some good points but it gets almost boring somethimes and they seem to add four letter words almost gratuitously. It's just ok - not great.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Story

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Valerie says: "Just As Wonderful as I Remembered!"
    "The Gunslinger:The Dark Tower I"
    Overall

    I'm sorry but I found this book very boring and did not want to finish it. I must be missing something based on all the other reviews. I would not recommend it.
