  • Odd Thomas

    Story
    (2146)

    "The dead don't talk. I don't know why." But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn.

    Denise says: "No Doubting Thomas"
    "derivative and trite"
    Overall

    A few good ideas. Too many useless digressions. Often boring.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 20 mins)
    • By Christopher Moore

    Story
    (1468)

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "not as good as..."
    Overall

    Christopher Moore is fun when he talks about San Francisco. He knows the city, its characters, its stories. He can unleash his irony and create "realistic" fantasies about Vampires, Death, old Gods and the like. Christopher Moore knows nothing about Palestine in the year 0, so the stories are trite and boring. The characters are unrealistic and anachronistic. The jocks are clever, not funny. I couldn't finish the book.

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 19 mins)

    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.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "timely and fun"
    Overall

    This book is a gem. The plot is gripping, the narrator is convincing, the considerations on the financial market and its scandals are timely. You will enjoy every second
