    Overall

    This will be the first book I abandoned in nearly 300 titles. To say it's bloody awful is a huge understatement.

    Marsupial pigmies....REALLY? that's the best you could come up with? Your weed is too strong.

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Chic flick"
    Overall

    Very nicely written but much shorter on action than I had hoped, I guess I should have researched the author. The story is mostly about the emotional effects of a host not how they came or why.

    Great pace, well written and very enjoyable. The plot and characters are well developed and all in all it was mostly believable.

    Joshua Jordan’s new weapons defense system will secure America against an array of new enemies, including a nuclear strike on New York City by North Korea. But global forces are mounting and corrupt government leaders will go to any extreme to prevent an impending economic catastrophe. As world events begin setting the stage for the “end of days” foretold in Revelation, Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

    I want my money back! Every conservative cliche, scapegoat, straw man ....all in one piece of evangelical propaganda.

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    Anthony is very easy of the ears, the book is easy to listen too and covers a lot of ground, some of it will be very familiar if you watch his TV shows. Tony often comes full circle when going off on his famous rants, frequently summarizing he understands the victims point of view and perhaps they aren't all bad after all....he's getting mellow in old age.

    I really enjoy Tony's honesty, he is frank and self deprecating in a world of food personalities nobody ever really asks hard question of. The book is like Les Halles, it's not the best steakhouse or French Bistro it's just honest and when Tony fries something (or someone) it's truly crispy!

    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.

    Amazon Customer says: "Play the Book and Let the Book Play You"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I had gone off Mr King for a long time, this book grabbed me from the beginning and his casual detailed character building is a joy. As usual things get weird at the end but we knew that....

    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!"
    "Hard work"
    Overall

    Hard work....never really held my attention.

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"
    "Dull"
    Overall

    Pandering to the most macho of readers the writing is awkward and dull.

    "Very interesting"
    Overall

    It is very relevant despite being 9 years old. More to the point the advent of social media breaking down the barriers to customers even further very useful. The concept of "the market" in the oldest sense of the word is very powerful, people meeting, talking sometimes buying sometimes simply sharing information ensures your customers are sticky. There are way too many websites that are simply screen based brochures still in 2009.
