    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Horrible Ending"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed 95% of this book, but I was extremely disappointed with the ending. I won't spoil it in case anyone wants to waste their money/credits on it, but let's just say that the author built a great "detective story" and mostly believable characters around true events, but then threw it all away with a completely irrelevant and cheesy ending. I think he found himself halfway through the story with no plausible ending in sight, so he took the lazy way out after 9/11... I was actually angry at how I was set up to enjoy the book, with no possible way to resolve the story. So much promise, so much disappointment...

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Paul says: "In love with books again"
    "Still Interesting and Entertaining"
    Overall

    Yes, there were some parts that droned on a bit and felt like history class... However, I still think the book is a good listen. It entertained me through 17 hours of jogging, errands, etc. The ratings on here seem a tad skewed because people were expecting another DaVinci Code, but that's impossible because we already know the format.

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Overall

    This listen was interesting for the insight into the world of fashion publishing from the point of view of an outsider - like 99.9% of the population. My only criticism is that the main character continually acted like an idiot! I remember what it was like to be a self-conscious, nervous 23-year-old, but I could not identify at all with this character. She supposedly made it through college, but couldn't speak up to defend herself once?!? As the subject line reads, I wanted to shake some sense into this girl in every chapter... I guess that means it was engaging at least. Bottom line: Good to pass the time, if you want to be frustrated at the main character for most of that time.
