    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    What would have made Zero Day better?

    If it hadn't been so similar to the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child. It really seemed like a rip off.


    Has Zero Day turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What aspect of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ???s performance would you have changed?

    Ms. Cassidy could vary her accents a little. All the characters sound too similar to one another.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Ron McLarty.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed. I can't imagine Lee Child would be very pleased as well.

    Barefoot, thirtysomething Amber shows up at the door of a Norfolk cottage that the Smarts are renting for the summer. Amber doesn't know them, but she talks her way in, telling lies, and stays for dinner. Eve, an author, thinks Amber is a student her husband is sleeping with. Michael, an English professor, knows only that her car broke down. Daughter Astrid, age 12, thinks she's her mother's friend. Son Magnus, 17, thinks she's an angel.

    Overall

    I was initially concerned I had made a poor choice. By the end, I was disappointed it wasn't longer. I would almost compare this to Cloud Atlas, with out the fantasy. Great characters. This is the type of book that should be broken down and analyzed in a literature class. Well done.

    Michael Robotham's Suspect, hailed as "a lightning-paced debut" by Entertainment Weekly, was an international best seller that raised the bar for thrillers. Now two characters from that acclaimed novel, Detective Vincent Ruiz and psychologist Joe O'Loughlin, return for the electrifying Lost. When Detective Ruiz is pulled from the Thames, he has a bullet in his leg, a photograph of a missing (and presumed dead) girl in his pocket, and absolutely no memory of what happened.

    Lauren says: "EXCELLENT"
    "well done"
    Overall

    A well done detective novel. Certain tried and true "rogue cop" aspects are present, but over all fresh. Interesting characters and well narrated. It is better than anything I have recently listened to or read by James Patterson. I would reccomend it.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    "A Good Listen"
    Overall

    I am just glad Mr. King is still writing. I really enjoy his work. It seems that some people find it fashionable to be dismissive of his writing. I wonder if they actually read or listen to any of his books.
    This is an entertaining listen. It's not "change your life" good, but good. The narration is superb. If you like King's previous work, you'll probably like this as well.

    For the three years Shadow spent in prison, all he wanted was to get back to the loving arms of his wife and stay out of trouble for the rest of his life. But days before his release, he learns that his wife has been killed in an accident, and his world becomes a colder place.

    Joseph says: "Amazing, powerful book about America."
    "Not the Gunslinger, but...."
    Overall

    Having listened to stephen King's Dark tower series, this book is a little weird. It is so similar. It may just be the influence of the narration. I kept expecting the main character to say,"gunslingers to me!".
    By the end of the book, I was enjoying it, but it is a little disjointed. All in all a good listen.

    Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he'd been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart's mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father's court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family's secret history.

    Janet C. Walker says: "Excellent"
    "well done"
    Overall

    Very well written and read. It almost reminds one of "The Prince of Tides". This rises to the top of popular fiction. Well done.

    Best-selling, critically acclaimed author Mark Helprin's work has drawn favorable comparisons to an elite group of literary legends, including James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Edgar Allan Poe, and Thomas Mann. Helprin's sheer comic brilliance shines in this ingenious farce.

    Chris says: "God save Craig-Vyvyan! I liked it."
    "very entertaining"
    Overall

    I did not expect much from this book, but was willing to give it a chance. I was pleasantly suprised. It was charming and very funny. I would certainly recomend it for anyone looking for an amusing change of pace.
