    To everyone at Meridian High School, Michael Vey is an ordinary 14-year-old. In fact, the only thing that seems to set him apart is the fact that he has Tourette's syndrome. But Michael is anything but ordinary. Michael has special powers. Electric powers....

    I found Michael Vey: the Prisoner of Cell 25 entertaining, but not a compelling book which I'll recommend to my friends. I would recommend the book for a teenager though. Interesting story while exemplifying great morals.

    Would you listen to This Is Herman Cain! again? Why?

    This book served its purpose, which was to inform me a bit more about the current presidential candidate. The author reads the book himself and does a great job! He puts his own attitude and feeling into the audio book. I can't say that I would read it a second time, once was enough.


    What other book might you compare This Is Herman Cain! to and why?

    Other biographies are similar to this book


    What does Herman Cain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really enjoyed his laughter and attitude included with the audio reading. I feel that it added to the book as a whole.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was not particularly compelling.


    Any additional comments?

    Worthwhile for learning more about Herman Cain.

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I enjoyed the objective views about


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Evans, the lawyer. He seemed to be the one learning throughout the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Warning: this book has excessive bad language. (Not as bad as military novels but definitely much more than necessary!!)

    This astonishing novel was chosen as a Best Book of the Year by the Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, Publisher's Weekly and Newsweek. Contained within is the story of Edgar Mint, the half-Apache, mostly orphaned child who overcomes a serious childhood injury to embark on a life of tragedies, including a boarding school for Native Americans and a dysfunctional Mormon foster family.

    Story

    This is a very different story written in a different way. Overall, the story isn't so bad. The ending is sweet. I would have given it a higher rating without so much swearing, and crude language / topics (ie. masturbation). I wish I had a way to know about those faults before hand so that I never would have bought this book.
    Warning: there is A LOT of swearing in the first half of this book.

    Born in shadow and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States. With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the U.S. has ever faced.

    Story

    ..the author would have used less foul language. You don't need to use 500 "F words" to make a great book. Please tone down the language!! I don't feel that I can recommend it to friends because of this flaw. I enjoyed the story a lot but I would have enjoyed it even more without the swearing.

    St. Patrick's Day, New York City. Everyone is celebrating, but everyone is in for a shock. Born into the heat and hatred of the Northern Ireland conflict, IRA man Brian Flynn has masterminded a brilliant terrorist act: the seizure of Saint Patrick's Cathedral. Among his hostages: the woman Brian Flynn once loved, a former terrorist turned peace activist.

    Spencer K. Collins says: "Not even close to DeMille's other books"
    "Way too much swearing"
    Overall

    If you really like to hear the F-word over and over again then this book is perfect for you. I'm no prude but this book really went over board!
