    After the success of his highly-acclaimed Thank You for Smoking, Buckley returns to the strange land of Washington D.C. in a millennial comedy of manners about aliens and pundits...and how much they both have in common."

    Anthony says: "Laughing Gas"
    "What a riot!!!! Stuffy politicians watch out."
    Overall

    This book does for politicians what "Thank You for Smoking" did for the tobacco industry. Buckley keeps you chuckling through the entire book.Great entertainment.Wish Buckley had more of these!!!

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I got this book to listen along with my 13 year old niece who is reading the book. And end of the world style book does not need the authors political views boldly shown to tell the story . The jabs at Fox News, George Bush and Christians felt like a petulant child had written them during a temper tantrum .

    Serge A. Storms is back! The one-man crime spree hits no speed bumps as he swings through Tampa, Disney World, and parts south before settling down in Miami Beach to team up with a former sidekick and launch his long-overdue offbeat travel service. It's a labor of love as Serge forces customers to confront the underbelly of the Sunshine State's past and present. Some clients get it; others run for their lives. No matter.

    Paul says: "You Gotta Love Serge!"
    "Silly, fun characters"
    Overall

    Serge is an insane, charming, fun character....Hopefully audible will get more from this author! All around fun to listen to and George Wilson is a perfect reader for this set of characters

    If you like Carl Hiaasen, GET THIS ONE! Similar settings,nutty characters....

    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    Edmund says: "You love it or hate it...."
    "You cant go wrong with Stormy Weather"
    Overall

    Again...another great book from a great author.....i always love the readings from George Wilson....go thru every book of Hiaasen.....all are pure entertainment!!!! Your audiobook credit wont be wasted!!!

    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    G. Cernicky says: "great stuff"
    "One the edge of my seat from the begining!!!!"
    Overall

    WOW I haven't listened to Dan Brown in a while. Excellent plausible plot. You can really see the possibility of the story line.I didn't want to get out of my car!Rarely do I rate titles but when this book ended I knew I had to.
