    The Dead Path tells the gripping story of a broken man, Nicholas Close. A terrible accident has left him a widower and awoken in him the ability to see the dead. Now, he can’t escape visions of tortured spirits, their last moments caught in horrible, endlessly replaying loops. Nicholas leaves London and returns to Australia, where he is disturbed to see that a heavily treed tract of land in his childhood suburb has somehow escaped development.

    Overall

    I don't understand the negative critics, it might not be the kind of book that everyone loves, but it definitely is a great book, I am hoping for a sequel. As for adjusting to the accent (???) come on...there is absolutely no problem with the accent, the reader speaks clearly and is very easy to understand.

    I highly recommend this book as it has lots of twists and turns and the end is very interesting.

    As war continues to rage between the Alliance and Syndicate Worlds, Captain "Black Jack" Geary is promoted to admiral - even though the ruling council fears he may stage a military coup. His new rank gives him the authority to negotiate with the Syndics, who have suffered tremendous losses and may finally be willing to end the war. But an even greater alien threat lurks on the far side of the Syndic occupied space.

    The only negative thing about this book is that the battles are weak and that I am a little fed up with the holier than thou attitude of the hero and his captain girlfriend, I mean you can take this honorable thing too far and I think that this series is getting there, I would just like Geary to just tell someone to get lost and shut up, just once.
    I will keep on reading the following series because this is still a good series.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    This book is very long but very short in time perceived. I was sad to get to the end.
    I couldn't finish the the Wheel of Time series because it just dragged on forever and just lost me, but this book, although it is very detailed, doesn't have any lags or dead time, the story keeps on moving forward with very interesting characters and the time just flies by.
    I am truly looking forward to the next book.

    In this book, Sandman Slim basically pukes on god and tells us what an idiot he is...if you are sensitive to this, go read someone else, but if you enjoy a no holds barred, uncensored, very creative and action packed story this is it.

    I loved this book and the series so far.

    The human-eating Posleen have invaded Earth, decimating all but two North American territories. Heavily outnumbered, humans cluster close together, the possibilities of habitable space shrinking by the day. An epic battle from September 11-27, 2009, will decide the fate of humankind, and the apocalyptic decision to use nuclear weapons - heretofore banned - will alter the fate of alien and human forever.

    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    Lots of good old fashion violence and explosions.
    When getting one of the Monster Hunter books you know it's not Shakespeare, what is is though is great fun and wonderful battles from start to end.

    I wish the books were longer but can't wait for the next one to come out.

    I have a theory that the author has major mommy issues and was probably a drag queen.

    Man oh man, all of this "men are so stupid" and "women are strange" crap is REALLY getting on my nerves, I mean, we KNOW you've said it at least 100 times per book so far, we get it, your mommy didn't breast feed you..it's ok get over it (I know he is dead), and why oh why does he go on and on about the "colour and texture of the lace on the green silk low cut neckline dress" blah blah blah...this book could have been at least 10 hours shorter and it would still have been long at times.
    I will finish the series because I have read 6 so far and the story is good, but if the next one is as slow as this one I will give up.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    This book is very well written and takes you to 14th century England very well.
    BUT the same people seem to get a disaster every other page and it just keeps coming, it gets to the point where I went...oh come on..again???
    The evil people seem to be invincible and get away with everything and the poor people get shafted at every turn, I know that 14th century England was not very fair, but it's just too much at one point.
    In any case, I enjoyed the book but will think twice before listening to another of his books.
    John Lee is his usual fantastic self and makes the story flow with his flawless reading.
