I am a middle aged woman with an open mind and many interests, my reading/listening moods change like my teen-age daughter changes her clothes.

    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    Story

    I appreciated the idea of how things could be in a very controlling and closed society in an apocalyptic scenario; however, this particular book ends too abruptly. I felt like I fell off of a cliff with no resolution, I really hate stories that end like this, it would not be so bad if there was a sequel but have not seen one. The author had an alternate motive, to prove a point, but I was not able to buy into it even in a fiction kind of way.

    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.

    Story

    I listened to this book 4 times, not because of its hellish, ruthless, and so primitive survival ways after a major catastrophe like an electrical magnetic pulse (EMP), but because it really made me think about my own life and how we would survive thrown back into the dark ages. I bring so many life experiences to this scenario (Retired Army Major, advanced nurse, gardener/farmer, mother, wife, and friend), but I cannot imagine living in a world without electricity, fresh water, law and order, medications or a dang grocery store. I was so drawn to listening to this book so many times because I did not want to miss anything; I wanted to imagine myself (and my family and friends) in this world so that I could see where we need to make changes in our current lives to make them more simple, meaningful and capable of surviving any type of catastrophe even if it is for a few month or years. We have come so far with regards to technology, where is the breaking point and what will it take and is it worth the fight to start over or just survive?

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Story

    I have tried to listen to this book 3 times and have talked to many others about it; I can’t get past the first or second chapter......too much talk and not enough action for me. I really have to use my brain at work and when communicating with my 5 kids, I just want to escape when I listen, this book does not provide that escape for me....this book is not for me, at least not right now.

    When incidents of food supply contamination dominate the news media, two investigators - Zol Szabo, a public health doctor, and Hamish Wakefield, a young infectious diseases specialist - come under immense pressure to find the cause of a mysterious epidemic before more victims show up on the autopsy table. In a race against the clock, the two doctors must navigate the treacherous political minefields of the medical community and the media while the disease spreads.

    Enchanted by a powerful spell, Highland laird Drustan MacKeltar slumbered for nearly five centuries hidden deep in a cave, until an unlikely savior awakened him. The enticing lass who dressed and spoke like no woman he'd ever known was from his distant future, where crumbled ruins were all that remained of his vanished world.

    I really like a love story with a plot, a good story line and the ability to feel like I am right there in the story. So far, this is my favorite of the Highlanders series by Karen Marie Moning.

    I do not know who is more brilliant, JD Robb or Kristen Eriksen; JD Robb created real-life characters and Kristen Eriksen brings them to life.
