    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    Story

    I am completely enthralled by this book. Neal creates moving pictures from each characters view as the book rumbles along uniting 21st century technology with 6th century militant religion culminating in a face to face showdown with modern American extremism.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Story

    I respect our service men and women. I appreciate that men like Chris are in the business of war. I think I would be horrible at it. However, The Iraq War, was and will always be a travesty of deception and lies. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. The reason why Afghanistan is still unstable is because The United States turned its back on a global coalition that had formed to stop al-Queda. Instead W, whom I voted for, Rove, Dick, and Rummey should be tried for treason. They turned the people of Islam against us. The Iraq War created groups like ISIS. The Iraq War has ensured that the US will be fighting the War in the Middle East for decades to come.

    Civil disobedience is an American Virtue. Standing against an illegal, unjust, immoral war would have been the courageous thing to do.

    After a CIA agent mysteriously dies overseas, his top asset surfaces with a startling and terrifying claim. There’s just one problem - no one knows if she can be trusted. But when six exchange students go missing, two airplane passengers trade places, and one political-asylum seeker is arrested, a deadly chain of events is set in motion.

    Kind of a predictable yawner. This one is not my style, but I shall soldier on.

    I am fascinated by performance measurement. I like David Parmenter's work, but the narration is a snoozer.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    James says: "Not as good as previous books"
    "Mr. Dotrice? We need to talk...."

    Story

    As always the story is magnificent. Roy Dotrice, through the first three books, was flawless! Amazing range of vocal characterization and acting ability. Well Done! However, the last two books, the voices no longer match the characters. Dani now sounds very similar to Asha. I jumped back to Storm of Swords and Dani's voice is completely different.

    I find myself getting confused as I immediately identify the voice with a different character. Such a shame, great book, great voice work....till now anyway.
