    A mysterious alien presence unexpectedly bursts out of sacred sites all over the world and begins to rip human souls from their bodies, plunging the world into a chaos it has never before known. Courage meets cowardice; loyalty meets betrayal as an entire world struggles to survive this incredible end-all war. Heroes emerge, villains reveal themselves, and in the end, something completely new and unexpected happens that at once lifts the fictional characters into a new life and sounds a haunting real-world warning for the future.

    Overall

    Absolutely the worst book I've ever listened to. The story is disjointed and rambling and the narration is more than annoying. Compared to Phillip Pullman's riveting trilogy "His Dark Materials", also about parallel universes, this book lacks imagination, character development and a cohesive storyline. Don't waste your money. I wish I hadn't.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Never disappoints"
    Overall

    James Lee Burke never disappoints. His lyrical, almost poetic style is riveting. The local descriptions are spot on, although I think the narrator needs a little update on the fact Montana residents have virtually no accent. Great book.

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Snoodely says: "Intelligent, spooky thriller"

    I can't wait for the next book.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    "Tedious"
    Overall

    A long tedious listen. The first part is great, I really got involved with the characters, but the rest of the book is just not engaging. I managed to finish listening to it, but the characters are not well drawn and I couldn't keep track of who was who. Except for a few, I just didn't care about them. It ended abruptly and I suppose it will have a sequel, but I will not be among the buyers. Comparison to Stephen King? You've got to be kidding!

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "King's best book"
    Overall

    Wow! This was one of those can't stop listening books. The fast story line, the character development were signature King at his best. I didn't want it to end. I believe it was his best book . King is a master story teller and he never lets you down and and he never lets you go.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "Great Listen"
    Overall

    When I ordered this book, I did not realize it was a children's book. No matter,it is a fascinating story, in the manner of Harry Potter. There were a few escapades that I did not think added to the story, but kids will love them. Very well written and read by the author. A wonderful fantasy and in it's own way, a love story.

    New spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love or pity and remain good "patriots" -- this is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man.

    S. Lev-Ami says: "Le Carre's Back!"
    ".Don't bother.Sorry I bought it."
    Overall

    Convoluted, complicated, boring. I couldn't bring myself to care what happened to the "terrorist", he was such a whiny, ungrateful, creature, who couldn't make up his mind about anything other than imposing his will on everyone else, including his lawyer. A horrible, weak portrayal of a woman falling in love with her client, not worthy of her devotion. Skip it.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation. When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    "More great Stephen Kiing"
    Overall

    I've been a Stephen King fan from his Richard Bachman days and I belive this is one of his best efforts. You really get to know the characters and the narration is great. His great imagination and intelligence are really on display in this book. Very entertaining.
