    Jack Reacher is approached by a Secret Service agent who needs a favor. "I want to hire you to assassinate the Vice President of the United States," she asks. She is the newly appointed head of the VP's security detail and wants Reacher to try to penetrate her team's shield. He has the skills and the stealth and no one knows him. How else can she be sure her protection is truly effective?

    Story

    This is my second Jack Reacher story and I enjoyed it as much as the first. A great character, totally implausible, totally impossible to exist, but then again, so is superman and batman and they personify why superheros make great reading. Escapism, fantasy world, a place where no human has been before - and never can. But who cares.
    I have enough real s--t in my life so escapism with a superhero is great. And the story lines are also unrealistic, but again, I read for entertainment, and I find Jack to be a very entertaining character, A goody with a touch of naughty - and gets away with murder.
    I also enjoy Dick Hill's reading. He added a lot of atmosphere to the story, his reading and characterisations were very professionally done.
    I am ordering another Jack Reacher Fantasy

    Talon Avalon is a Timecaster; a cop who is able to look back in time and view crimes that have already happened. But that was before he was framed by an alternate version of himself from another dimension. Now he's being hunted in this world, and countless parallel worlds, as the biggest mass-murderer in history. While trying to save his kidnapped wife and clear his name, Talon fights to prevent a series of mishaps that could destroy the multiverse, along with the very fabric of spacetime.

    Story

    I am not really qualified to write a review as I never got past the first five minutes. In this time, I was told that, if I was not the person to whom the book was dedicated, I should not be reading it. Then I was told that the book contained lots of f!@#$% swearing, lots of graphic sex and other f!@@##$ stuff and if I didn' like it then I should find another F$%^^#@ book to read.
    I choose to find another book .... what a pity that I cannot return this one and get my money back. I am not a prude but this sort of gratuitious and abusive introduction does not suit my style of being entertained.

    In this Hugo Award-winning classic, Enoch Wallace is an ageless hermit, striding across his untended farm as he had done for over a century, still carrying the gun with which he had served in the Civil War. But what his neighbors must never know is that, inside his unchanging house, he meets with a host of unimaginable friends from the farthest stars.

    Story

    A great story, dated in a technological sense but very original in its concept. I enjoyed it from beggining to end. The story is never dull, always something happening to draw you further along the path to the end of the book.

    For Oxford student Kivrin, traveling back to the 14th century is more than the culmination of her studies - it's the chance for a wonderful adventure. For Dunworthy, her mentor, it is cause for intense worry about the thousands of things that could go wrong.

    Story

    I absolutly loved as one of the best books ever, Connie's book Not To Mention The Dog etc etc. I just had to have another of her books. But the narrator of the story is hopeless. Her characterisations leave me bewildered as to who is speaking and which character is which. Her voice fades at the end of sentances making it impossible to follow the story. I had to give up after only a chapter to two. I will however, go and buy a hardcopy of the book, I loved "The Dog" so much.
    Very dissapointed. No stars for performance, can't comment on the story as I never got to hear it.

    In this Hugo-winner from Connie Willis, when too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.
