    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. I have been a member of Audible for almost a decade. This is the only book I have ever given 1 star.


    What could Larry McMillan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Put some time into actually providing some information to the reader and the book. This "book" is just a sales pitch to subscribe to his newsletter.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The book sound quality sounds like somone smuggled a tape recorder into one of Larry McMillan's seminars and then published the recording.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger / Disappointment. Insider trading is presented like it is ok since everyone does it. Much of the information in this book is 15 years old and not relevant today. The reader is also told the only way they can get the relevant information is to subscribe to Larry's newsletter.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like my money back.

  • Frankenstein, Book Four: Lost Souls

    In Frankenstein: Lost Souls, Dean Koontz puts a singular twist on this classic tale of ambition and science gone wrong, to forge a new legend uniquely suited to our times. It is a story of revenge, redemption, and the thin line that separates human from inhuman.

    Lane says: "Frankenstein Lost Souls"
    "Wait to purchase until the 2nd half is finished"
    Overall

    This is only 1/2 the book. I was disappointed when the book abruptly ended with no warning. This (1st) part of the book had no climax, no real plot to speak of and little character development. I am a dedicated fan of Dean Koontz and this series, but I would recommend steering clear of this one; at least until the 2nd half is published. There is nothing in this book worth a credit.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    "Not quite as good as the first"
    Overall

    It's hard to forget such a memorable character as Odd Thomas and the challenges he faced in the last book. It was good to see him back in a follow up to the last book. Unfortunately not much happened in Forever Odd. The storyline in Forever Odd and new characters were just not as interesting as the first book Odd Thomas. It is worth the read if you are like me and you must finish a series once started. If not, I recommend remembering Odd as he was at the end of the first book, Odd Thomas.
