    Hannah Bryson is a marine architect who's been given a fascinating assignment. A Russian nuclear submarine called The Silent Thunder has been purchased by the United States for exhibition in a museum. Hannah must create a schematic of the sub to check for hazards and design seamless modifications to make it safe for the thousands of expected visitors. But soon she discovers that she's being used as bait.

    Overall

    I absolutely LOVE Iris Johansen and all of her "Eve Duncan" books. I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. I was excited about reading or listening to something else by her. Unfortunately, this book has the same reader- Jennifer Van Dyke who uses the same voices and accents for all of the Eve Duncan books. While the book was very good-- it was hard to remember who was who. I kept thinking I was hearing Eve Duncan and Montalvo instead of the characters in this book.
    It is a great read and like all of Johansen's books, very easy and at the same time, very engaging and edge of your seat action at times. I will probably listen again.

    It is 1940 and a tragedy sends Lou and her little brother, Oz, along with their invalid mother, from New York City to the rugged mountains of Southwest Virginia to live with their great-grandmother. The story is told with both heartbreaking elegance and large doses of touching humor as the lives of Lou and Oz are changed forever.

    Overall

    The ending makes up for the first half of the book. I was bored to tears and zoned out many times in my car listening to the scenery and descriptions of everything. It felt like watching grass grow. In fact, I could leave and come back 30 minutes later and not miss anything important. But, finally, the story picks up and somehow I actually started caring about the characters. The second half of the book was much better because it seemed like more happened and was a bit more dramatic. I was glad when it was over, however.

    Cormac McCarthy, best-selling author of National Book Award winner All the Pretty Horses, delivers his first new novel in seven years. Written in muscular prose, No Country for Old Men is a powerful tale of the West that moves at a blistering pace.

    Couldn't get past the first hour because of having to wade through all the blood and killing.

    Amy Redwing has dedicated her life to the Southern California organization she founded to rescue abandoned and endangered golden retrievers. Among dog lovers, she's a legend for the risks she'll take to save an animal from abuse. Among her friends, Amy's heedless devotion is often cause for concern. To widower Brian McCarthy, whose commitment she can't allow herself to return, Amy's behavior is far more puzzling and hides a shattering secret.

    Fred says: "Dean's got his groove back"
    "Great Book for Doglovers!"
    Overall

    I love Dean Koontz books and found this one better and a little more believable- at first anyway. I love the fact that dogs play such an important role in this book and highlights the rescue/ adoption system in this country. It is something that has never been done before in mainstream books and I came away from the book with a sense of pride that I got my dog from a shelter also.
    The book has a great storyline and has a lot of twists and turns- even though it was predictable.
