  • Extremes: A Retrieval Artist Novel

    His name: Miles Flint. His occupation: Retrieval Artist. His job: find the Disappeared - outlaws on the run, wanted for crimes against alien cultures. The catch: Flint isn't working on the side of the law anymore.

    Dave says: "Usually, I can make it through a book..."
    "A Gem of a Find"
    Overall

    My first experience with Kristine Kathryn Rusch was the first novel of this series "The Disappeared" and it will not be the last. This novel ("Extremes") picks up where "The Disappeared" left off, on the moon, and ended up being even better than the first of the series. Flint is now a Retrieval artist and getting good at it. I can hardly wait until I get the next one downloaded to pick up where this left off. Rusch rates right up there with the Sci-Fi greats.

    Three-time Christy Award winner Davis Bunn collaborates with the beloved Janette Oke to evoke the spirit of the original followers of the Way. In a first century Jerusalem seething with turmoil, religious and political leaders eye the burgeoning Christian community with suspicion. While a Hebrew merchant and a Roman soldier vie for the hand of a lovely follower of Christ, she finds her heart drawn to another whose tireless care and unflinching faith shine daily.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Zero Day to be better than the print version?

    Not having the time to actually sit down & read (I do a lot of driving on my job), audio books are perfect for me. This is a superb book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Day?

    The story has a lot of twists & turns... just when you think you have it figured out, you realize you were mistaken.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy personalize the story... I hope they always are the readers of this series!

    Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington to L.A. in time for Christmas. Forced to take the train across the country because of a slight "misunderstanding" at airport security, he begins a journey of self-discovery and rude awakenings, mysterious goings-on and thrilling adventures, screwball escapades and holiday magic.

    What made the experience of listening to The Christmas Train the most enjoyable?

    After reading this, I really want to do a cross country train ride!


    What other book might you compare The Christmas Train to and why?

    I cannot think of a book like it... it was great!


    What about Tim Matheson’s performance did you like?

    He had a way of sucking you in to the story & you felt like you were there... not just listening/reading a book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Aw... Trains

His mother, Barbara, looks for help from Kent Harlan - the man whom she secretly, reluctantly loves and who once helped rescue her daughter from a mess of her own. Kent flies to her aid and begins the impossible work of getting Lance out of trouble, protecting a baby who has no home, and finding help for a teenage mother.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Blackstock is a very talented writer, and I recommend her books to all I know.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It showed that people need to be responsible for their actions.


    What about Cassandra Campbell’s performance did you like?

    She has a way of bringing the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very tough subject and I was pleased that Blackstock didn't portray the characters as victims. We as a society need to realize what our actions do to others and take responsibility for them.

    Where does The Forgotten rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Baldacci has another great book on his hands... it is a great pleasure reading an action packed book without being filled with foul language and sexual exploits! Only a talented writer can accomplish that and they are fewer and fewer of these types of writers.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Puller was my favorite character because he didn't go with the flow, and he respected his elders.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Character!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was... but because of a busy lifestyle I was not able to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the listen!

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    I have listened to hundreds of audio books to date, and this ranks up near the top. Lee Child does a superb job once again!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Jack Reacher was my favorite character. He is a character who is likable, thinks things through and knows what he is doing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did want to listen to it from start to finish... nearly did.


    Any additional comments?

    Lee Child writes great books and I can hardly wait until the next Reacher Book!

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Mary Higgins Clark is back with the chilling story of a doctor's brutal murder, the wife who goes to jail for it, and the reporter who tries to prove her innocence. But the reporter's got an agenda of her own...in Greenwich, Connecticut, doesn't everyone? This is Clark at her suspenseful best!

    This book was a great book... not a dull moment. You get to know the characters well, like some & hate others. Good intrigue. You really feel for Molly.
