    Best-selling author Brad Thor has crafted a must-read blockbuster featuring hard-nosed U.S. anti-terrorist agent Scot Harvath. Fiendish al-Qaeda terrorists are planning to rescue their imprisoned WMD expert during the chaos they create with their July 4th destruction of all bridges and tunnels to Manhattan. Now it's up to ex-SEAL Harvath to stop the evil-doers -- and neutralize the diabolical three-foot-tall villain known as "The Troll" who supplies their intelligence.

    Overall

    Enough of the flag-draped patriot porn already. This novel, and I'm sure others by the same author, completely oversimplify the nation's very real issues to cater to the dim-witted terrorist-whacking fantasies of Bush-bots and Dittoheads. Is it possible that this legion of weak-minded armchair warriors can actually pull themselves away from Fox News long enough to actually read a book NOT written by Bill O'Reilly? Move on. Go buy a Stephen King or something.

    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

    Raxxillion says: "OMG! The hyperbole is the GREATEST EVER!!!!!"
    "Very disappointing"
    Overall

    To say this book was poorly written and unoriginal would be a gentle understatement. The maddening use of cliche after dim cliche would have flunked this author out of any decent high school creative writing class. Two stars: One for the author's dumb luck in getting this dog published and one for the fairly cool cyber-Tut death mask on the cover. Daniel H. Wilson, find a day job.

    At last, one of the world’s greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it. To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem’s provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

    Overall

    I've heard of Stanislaw Lem but never read his work until now. Solaris is 50 years old but could have been written last summer. With the exception of some basic terminology, it's just as fresh as anything written by my other favorites, Robert Charles Wilson and Peter F. Hamilton. Wow! Wow! and Wow! Brainy stuff for thinking people. Shout out to Alessandro!: BSG rocked the world, my friend!-- Thanks for some all too rare great television. You read the book very well, especially Snaut. Here's hoping for more Audible gigs.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    This recording is a cynical political message. The ultra-violence and meaningless death should appeal to wing nuts everywhere. Thinking people need not bother with this swill. I'd send my review through with zero stars if possible...

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Overall

    Perhaps you're like me and lost faith in Steven King's ability to deliver the psychological high followed by the drain, the hollow feeling you felt every time you finished one of his books-- His GOOD books. You know remember those?-- The ones he used to write back in the 80's and 90's when his characters were indistinguishable from real people and the narration was like a recounting of actual events, or so you believed. And then finally, the end of each story was mourned like the passing of a close friend.

    Then the dry time came and I, like so many others, felt Steve King had been lost to irrelevance. If you still believe that, you haven't read his last three or four books. This new set of novellas deal with brutal material, but only because he is reminding us that our brutal world is far more frightening than any bug-a-boo he can come up with. We humans are the real monsters in our midst and we do horrible, hateful things that defy the most perverse deed of any demonic minion we fear may lay in wait for us. It is even quite possible that these demonic minions are far more afraid of us than we are of them.

    In fact, I'm sure of it.

    Nine people have been slain in New York City, nine strangers with nothing in common - the apparent victims of a frighteningly elusive serial killer. Only one thing links the dead: postcards they received, mailed from Las Vegas, announcing the day they would die.

    Rebecca says: "An Ear Burner"
    "Very Interesting Idea"
    Overall

    Reads like two novels with the jumps back and forth between present day and medieval England. The execution of the plot is well done, but the characters are hopelessly formulaic and cliched. Actually would have liked to see Dan Brown's Robert Langdon be the protagonist, but the obligatory Dirty Harry type works just fine, too. Overall very readable, Glenn Cooper can be forgiven for the cardboard characters. 'The Library' was a very interesting idea.

    Overall

    OK, so I ignored the reviews that said this reader, David Case, was a lousy. I wish I hadn't. I've wanted to read this book for years and this guy has really put me off of it and I don't think I'm going to be able to finish it because the narration is so awful. The character voices he creates are terrible: All the male character sound the same, all the female characters sound the same. I can't tell who's talking half the time. And even if I DO know who's talking, the accents he makes are so heavy I can't understand what's being said. What a disappointment. AUDIBLE... PLEASE PRODUCE A NEW RECORDING OF THIS CLASSIC! THIS ONE SUCKS!
