    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    Story

    Here is the honest truth on this book.
    1) the first 2 or 3 hours are kind of painfull as the performance by the reader is too much. She squeeks & screams the lines. This improves greatly after that & she does a good job. But you have to get through the first section.

    2) the story really isn't that well written - I mean - its not a good story - The last 30 minutes were good - but when she was captured by the cult of "we are not mormons" who make her attend school.... come on - that just sucks. The title has nothing to do with the story & it seems that ashes are a side note & not related to anything that is happening.

    3) This might be a good book for a younger person looking for something a little scary - maybe an early teenager. Us older folks expect more.

    Celebrated crime master and two-time Edgar Award winner James Lee Burke returns with a gorgeously crafted, brutally resonant chronicle of violence along the Texas-Mexico border. Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a small Southwest Texas border town, meting out punishment and delivering justice in his small square of this magnificent but lawless land. When an alcoholic ex-boxer named Danny Boy Lorca begs to be locked up after witnessing a man tortured to death by a group of bandits, Hack and his deputy, Pam Tibbs, slowly extract the Indian man’s gruesome tale.

    James Lee Burke's writing is rich and flavorful and so full of expression you can smell the desert air!
    Will Patton???s interpretation of the book is excellent.

    Young Michael, an illegal immigrant escaping the troubles in Northern Ireland is strong and fearless and clever, just the fellow to be tapped by Darkey, a crime boss, to join a gang of Irish thugs struggling against the rising Dominican powers in Harlem and the Bronx. The time is pre-Giuliani New York, when crack rules the city, squatters live furtively in ruined buildings, and hundreds are murdered each month.

    Story

    This is my kind of story - for anyone who has been to Belfast, or New York (or a Mexican prison!) the author does a great job of capturing the spirit of these places.

    Love the story & the characters!

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"
    "Not that bad - but its no 'hunt for red october'"
    Overall

    I don't know - maybe Tom has lost touch with his roots. The book is OK - well written & has a good story. But I miss the detailed drama of the older books. Just like his last installment 'tiger' he spends too much time having Jack Sr. give political speeches & not nearly enough detailed high tension man hunter action of the books of old. In the end it is worth the read - but maybe I just miss the good old days.

    The first disturbing reports reached Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Charley Castillo in the form of backchannel messages concerning covert U.S. intelligence assets working for a variety of agencies suddenly gone missing and then, suddenly, inexplicably, found dying. Or dead. One in Budapest, Hungary. One in Kiev, Ukraine. One in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, mere klicks from the Iran border.

    Luck8 says: "Best of Presidential Agent Series"
    "Where were the 'Ops'?"
    Overall

    The book was OK - but there were a few things I didn't like. First - no real Russian spy would magically fall in love with spy who she defected too. It was just too cheesy. Second - despite all the tension & sneaking around - there weren't any ops in the book until the end. I thought there would be more action & less cheesy love.

    Ulysses is regarded by many as the single most important novel of the 20th century. It tells the story of one day in Dublin, June 16th 1904, largely through the eyes of Stephen Dedalus (Joyce's alter ego from Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man) and Leopold Bloom, an advertising salesman. Both begin a normal day, and both set off on a journey around the streets of Dublin, which eventually brings them into contact with one another.

    Peter says: "Ulysses (Unabridged)"
    "poor audio quality"
    Overall

    I've wanted to listen to this one for a while. Unfortunately it is very difficult to make out what they are saying because the recording quality is poor. I couldn't finish the book, because I couldn't follow it.
