This book is really boooorrrrriiinng. It purports to tell the story of Marbury v Madison, one of the first US Supreme Court decisions.
But, it illuminated political activities during the early period of US history, in long, excrucia
Bova space-opera of the imaginative kind. Kept my interest, even if it started off like" Leave it to Beaver" in space. Then, it got interesting as all the story lines came together in the last hour of the listen. The male macho was somewhat distracting but balanced by some aggressive female characters. Number 4 of 4 in the Asteroid Wars series and #9 of 21 in the Grand Tour series, this book would have been really annoying if read alone because the characters and the context would be unknown. Overall, a good read and I'm looking forward to the next one.
Good suspense book--outlines the good -v- evil with a smattering of destiny meets destiny themes. Story begins with the revival of a dead man and progresses through a suspense laden time line to a conclusion in a place you just knew would be the site of an exciting, smash ending. Hitchcock and Serling would be proud.
A continuation of the "Destroyermen" series. Some characters in the plethora of characters, developed more fully as the story moved on--slowly. At one point three battles raged simultaneously and it was difficult to track progress in all of them or to understand the strategic import as the gore continued. No plot limes concluded and the author might as well have cut out some text and combined a few books. Nevertheless, I read/listened to all of it.
This book read like a film noir: a cross between Shirley Temple and Bogie & Bacall. The author spent most of the book setting up the conclusion and through interaction among the characters--it seemed to drag on and I almost put it down. Throughout, the reader was given interesting facts from which a conclusion might be drawn...not so fast, it's not all what it seems. If you like movies from the 1930s, this is the book for you.
The author created a book/novel about pure evil--horror. This one seems to drag a little, but held my interest through many details. Show me another weird Koontz book.
Good Connelly book...a classic whodunit where the cops/FBI begin to investigate the detective. Interesting premise -- detective sleuth's his heart donor's suspicious death. I like the imagination. This is book one of several; think I'll continue.
Second in a long series takes our heroes through the Korean Conflict. There is lots of action and they all come out of it --some not unscathed. On to "The Majors"!
Book 6 of the Brotherhood series finds our heroes conducting operations during the Vietnam Conflict. Their characters are further developed and they continue to act in the same way that they always have, except they're older and "wiser."? It isn't much, really, about the generals...rather, continues to develop all the characters. I enjoyed the book and am already on to number 7, "The Aviators;" which seems to write over some of the epilogue from "The Generals".
A slow and clunky read...probably because it was one of the author's first. Contains deep intrigue akin to human interaction, but attributed to non humans. Good story, though.
Another Sci-fi mixed with political intrigue. Don't want to give away the ending, but all the bad guys prospered and the good guys stayed neutral and (mostly) alive. C'mon! Oh, now I get it. There's a sequel.
