  • The Time Traveler's Wife

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "Star-crossed lovers trapped in time"
    Overall

    This is a 5-star read categorized as science fiction. However, Audrey Niffenneger's writing is so intelligent, characters so well developed and the plot so compelling I could not put down this "genie in a bottle". It has it all, a story, characters, humor, love and the heart rending sadness that lingers for days. This is a MUST READ. I will not go see the movie (coming out in Aug. '09) as there is no way it can capture this wondrous, detailed and never dull read as we walk through the lives of two people, and those they love, trapped by something which cannot be tamed - time.

  • A Dance with Dragons: A Song of Ice and Fire: Book 5

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the 5 books of the "A Song of Fire and Ice", aka "The Game of Thrones" for us HBO buffs. The charcter and plot development is enormously richer than could ever be unfolded in a teleplay. The only issue I have I is keeping up with the enormous cast of characters and the switch in plot lines through the performance of Roy Dotrice. This had to be an enormous undertaking for Mr. Dotrice and, as an American, his English accent is, on some rare occasion difficult to understand at times. I wish I had the ability to give the narrator 4.5 stars as one star is for pure effort in changing his voice from one character to another so quickly. But this is the only reason I gave this performance a 4 out of 5 for performance. If I had the gift of voice-overs, which people like Roy Dotrice and my favorite, Will Patton, I would pass on this monumental task to bring this rich tapestry to the ear of the listener. My only concern now is, will there be a Book 6?

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Story

    This was a further development of those characters which survived from book I. Ned is no longer with us, but this adds to the curiosity of "WHAT NEXT". Having established the characters, the numerous subplots are more richly developed into each story keeping this avid reader wanting more at the end. The only negative, and this is a persoanl issue, I do not like singing on an audiobook so I tend to turn down the volume on these. Otherwise, outstanding writing and narrator!!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Story

    Last year I was really thrilled to read King's "Under the Dome" as it was a return to a style which made him famous. Then, with 11-23-63, he takes it up another notch. I liked the plot, the narrator and how it all unfolded in King's sometimes over-desciptive scenes and character development. Best of the Year for sure!

  • Alexander Hamilton

    Ron Chernow, whom the New York Times called "as elegant an architect of monumental histories as we've seen in decades", now brings to startling life the man who was arguably the most important figure in American history, who never attained the presidency, but who had a far more lasting impact than many who did.

    Robert says: "Captivating & Fluid Bio Unique American immigrant"
    "Alexander Hamilton: Founding Father Extraordinaire"
    Overall

    Scott Brick delivers a brilliant performance in bringing to life this honest, detailed biography or one of our four greatest Founding Fathers: Washington, Hamilton, Franklin and Jefferson. This should be required reading for all American History scholars, not only for its honest, frank insight into a vain, character flawed but brilliant personality. But it also wonderfully purveys the perseverance of the UNION of the United States of America. In my opinion, he is the most underappreciated of our founding fathers for whom only George Washington garnered a true appreciation and understanding. God Bless America and God bless the sinner and absolute devotee to the Union of the United States of America, Alexander Hamilton.
