The second in the series, it kept me listening and interested for a long while. I couldn't wait for the book to end. But, alas, it did. The book contains a mix of megalomania and sci fi. Some, is almost believable.
Time travel novella...40 year old travels back in time to change his life and meets his 21 year old self. Things don't work out as planned and life changes. Fun read...where can I find more by this author?
Exciting, action packed. Jake and Toad save Cuba from the dreaded communists. I guess that's called "nation building?" The book is stimulating, if implausible. The reader mispronounces several words: "Hue City" is pronounced "hue" vice "whey", for example. That grates on me. Do your research! Where's my next Coonts book?
Fast paced, fun, read. On top of the standard mystery novel, it's got some mysterious quirky parts that make you wonder. The final, ending, twist was quite unique. Gimmie another Stuart Woods book!
Book describes just what the title says...from training to bombing missions to POW status and everything in between. It's well researched and well written with personal vignettes that are illuminating and illustrative. It's mostly about 8AF and 15AF (the other European numbered air force) gets short shrift in the deal. Probably, the book would have been too long. I enjoyed learning more about that time in history.
This is a very good book: a novelization of the movie. It leads you through the exciting and close paced world of US Special Operations Forces. As I was reading, I wondered where some of this material originated. You can't make this up. I want to see the movie.
A story about a perfect American family haunted by a malevolence from hubby's past. Sometimes, I just wanted to say: "don't dooo iiittt" as the little girls giddily and naively invite the demon. The smash conclusion is predictable, except for a little twist. Where's my next Koontz book?
The author does a good job describing the preparations that must be made for a trip to Mars. Everything from food to poop is covered. She had amazing access to the astronauts, NASA staff and other researchers...even the "three dolphin club." I think that I'll read another Mary Roach book, but not for awhile.
Jake and Toad save the world, again. This time in Russia during the 90s with a nuclear meltdown, a dog fight between an attack airplane and a fighter, killings in the streets and a pesky reporter. Action galore. Where's my next Coonts book?
This book is really about the damage that we humans have done to the earth and it's environment. One only needs observe areas where humans have ceased to be and one can observe amazing changes. It also cites historical examples of change that is observable in the last few hundred years. We have also created some monuments that will last for millenia: Mt Rushmore and radio waves emitted into the universe are examples. Well researched and exampled, the book became boring as the author recounted multiple examples on his theme. I would have enjoyed it better at about half it's length.
Note to self: don't read a Dean Koontz book at night when alone in the house. It's good and scarey. Who knew Montana had such evil beasties? Where is the next one?
