    Red centers around the heroic rescue attempts of Thomas Hunter to save both worlds. With the devastating realization that he has unleashed death into both worlds, he now must figure out how to undo this evil all while trying to save his true love. From meeting with world powers in one world to leading a small band of mighty warriors in the great forests of the other world, Thomas is determined to change the history of two realities, or sacrifice all in trying.

    Deanna says: "Best of the best!"
    "Captivating intrigue"
    Overall

    You know which world you live in but reading this book makes you wonder which world will end up being the real one for Thomas Hunter. I love mystery and have not been a big fantasy fan but this book mixes mystery into both worlds in such a way that it captivated me with its intrigue. I am anxiously waiting for 'White".

    Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet, Lost on the left, Found on the right, and the two never seem to balance. His days are full of people clamouring for answers and explanations. A jealous husband suspects his wife. Two spinster sister make a shocking find. A solicitor investigates an old murder.

    Lisa says: "Very satisfying"
    "Very Ordinary"
    Overall

    More to do with emotions than with mystery. I persevered hoping that it would improve but ended up disappointed.

    Tourist season is swinging into high gear in Miami. So are the activities of a bizarre terrorist group determined to keep the hapless "snowbirds" away. Armed with bombs, weed, and jumbled credos, they move toward their grand target, the Orange Bowl Parade, with plans to bring Miami and its tourist trade to a halt.

    Glenn says: "Not his best"
    "One to Recommend"
    Overall

    This one has a lot going for it .... good story, a message, wit, humour and good narration.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed this story. I loved the intelligence and the wit. The narrators gave it that added authenticity. Unlike some, I like an unabridged, I feel like I am getting my money's worth. I wouldn't have missed a word of this one.
