    Story

    Raskolnikov, a destitute and desperate former student, wanders through the slums of St. Petersburg and commits a random murder without remorse or regret. He imagines himself to be a great man, a Napoleon: acting for a higher purpose beyond conventional moral law.

    "Absorbing tale"
    Overall

    Although full of desriptions of poverty and depression I found this to be quite an absorbing tale. A lot of the book deals with lengthy thoughts and conversations of the characters and sometimes you wonder what the point is. This is one of the classics I missed reading when I was younger and wanted to catch up on and I'm glad I started it. I find myself wanting to return to it after I put it down.

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    "Compelling read........."
    Overall

    I'm almost finished this second book in the series and it is just as compelling. I am amazed how it hold my attention. The characters come to life especially with Roy Dotrice's voice.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    "Can't put it down...."
    Overall

    I am just finishing the second book in this series. It's taken me a while but 2/3 of the way through almost 90 hours and I'm still interested. I love Roy Dotrice telling of the story and his characters help keep the story straight. This is a compelling read.

  • Up Country

    In the latest from Nelson DeMille (author of The Lion's Game), Paul Brenner is called out of CID retirement to investigate the murder 30 years ago of an army lieutenant in Vietnam. Brenner's trip up country, with a beautiful American expatriate for company, will lead him to uncover an explosive, long-buried secret.

    James B says: "You Must Read Up Country"
    "Amazingly enthralling"
    Overall

    I say this is amazingly enthralling because the story is slow, the hero you want to shake and the reader too much into Paul Brenners sarcasm. Its hard to imagine someone in Brenners position allowing himself to be lead the way he was. Apart from that I found myself very much in the story and couldn't wait for the next drive in or out of work to see what was happening next. A very good educational and interesting account of the history of Vietnam, how it was for the soldiers over there and what is happening in the country now.
