    A #1 internationally best-selling author and recipient of the Gold Dagger Award, Ian Rankin has endeared himself to readers and won widespread critical acclaim for his much loved novels featuring Detective John Rebus. In Exit Music, the curtain is unquestionably falling on the long, controversial career of Rankin's famous investigator. But even as Rebus prepares for retirement, he is lured into one final case involving a murdered poet and a delegation of Russian businessmen.

    Overall

    I've loved this series for nearly twenty since finding a copy of Knots and Crosses at a friends house on a trip to London. Over the years in the Rebus books Ian Rankin created a great series of characters and plots that never failed to please.This book is purported to be the last in the John Rebus mysteries and I am extremely sad to see this series end.
    Exit Music has the usual characters such as Ger Cafferty and DS Siobhan Clarke, plot twists and descriptions of Edinburgh that make this series so great. Tom Cotcher does a wonderful job reading this book and all the characterizations and accents are first rate.
    You don't need to have listened to the previous volumes to enjoy this book but I highly recommend them as well.
    I hope that we will see Rebus in some future books if only to find out how he is coping with his retirement.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe

    • UNABRIDGED (21 hrs and 30 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: You thought he was a stodgy scientist with funny hair, but Isaacson and Hermann reveal an eloquent, intense, and selfless human being who not only shaped science with his theories, but politics and world events in the 20th century as well. Based on the newly released personal letters of Albert Einstein, Walter Isaacson explores how an imaginative, impertinent patent clerk became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos.

    Henrik says: "Surprise: Two books in one!"
    "This is the kind of book that deserves a Pulitzer"
    Overall

    In combining the personal and scientific story of Einstein Walter Isaacson has truly created a moving and highly entertaining biography. From his early triumphs as a Swiss patent examiner when he made his earliest breakthroughs to his quixotic quest for a "unified field theory" and his connection to the Jewish people I loved this book. If I were a Pulitzer voter I would give it a Pulitzer for biography. Edward Herrmann narrates with great care and I was able to follow the complex scientific parts with ease. If you download this book you will not be disappointed.
