    Doctor Impossible, evil genius and diabolical scientist, has tried to take over the world in every way imaginable, but this time is going to be different. He'll have to contend with Fatale, however, a rookie superhero on her first day with the Champions, the world's most famous superteam. She's a patchwork woman of skin and chrome, a gleaming technological marvel built for the next generation of warfare.

    Brad says: "Now that I have you at my mercy. . ."
    "Heros you care about"
    Overall

    I think anyone even slightly interested in classic comic book hero versus villain stories will enjoy this book. It's funny without ever betraying the genre.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Frank says: "Not his best"
    "Painfully bad"
    Overall

    Dan Brown drinking game: Every time you hear the phrase, "My God!" or "What in the world!?!" you must drink.
    Listen for an hour. You'll get smashed.
    This book is one smug lecture after another, always two people, one playing the part of the skeptic "Skully", the other playing the clever "Fox".
    And I actually enjoyed the Da Vinci Code.

    Meet Peter Brown, a young Manhattan emergency room doctor with an unusual past that is just about to catch up with him. His morning begins with the quick disarming of a would-be mugger, followed by a steamy elevator encounter with a sexy young pharmaceutical rep, topped off by a visit with a new patient - and from there Peter's day is going to get a whole lot worse and a whole lot weirder.

    Chuck says: "Great book and great narrator"
    "Excellent, but beware"
    Overall

    This makes a great 'guy's book club' pick -- I know my friends are going to love it.
    But it's not for those with weak stomachs.

    Stephen King and Peter Straub reintroduce you to Jack Sawyer of The Talisman, once a precocious boy traversing the Territories to save his mother and her "twinner," now a retired homicide detective drawn back to his past.

    Jennifer says: "Magnificent Sequel -- Riveting"
    "Fun for King fans"
    Overall

    I don't know much about Mr. Straub's work, but this seemed to me very much a King book. Not a great King book, but worth checking out if you like his style. I think the reader, Mr. Muller is excellent.

    Phssthpok the Pak had been traveling for most of his thirty-two thousand years. His mission was to save, develop, and protect the group of Pak breeders sent out into space some two-and-a-half million years before.

    Hugh says: "Protector - Classic of Known Space"
    "Only for hard sci-fi fans"
    Overall

    A good story with plenty of interesting ideas and believable future technology, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who wasn't a hard sci-fi fan. This isn't Star Wars.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    colleen says: "I loved it!"
    "Light, funny."
    Overall

    Moore relies a little to much on stereotypes for laughs, but if you can get past that...
    I found it very entertaining, and the reader was excellent. I will be purchasing more books by Moore.
