    Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away Lex.

    As usual the book gets your attention quickly and Harlan writes such tight stories that it spoils other writers books. Can't put it down until your done.

    How do you make sure a crime that hasn’t happened yet, never does? That’s the critical question facing Odd Thomas, the young man with a unique ability to commune with restless spirits and help them find justice and peace. But this time, it’s the living who desperately need Odd on their side. Three helpless innocents will be brutally executed unless Odd can intervene in time. Who the potential victims are and where they can be found remain a mystery. The only thing Odd knows for sure is who the killer will be: the homicidal stranger who tried to shoot him dead in a small-town parking lot.

    This is probably the best of the follow on novels. Nothing has ever lived up to the original.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Really enjoyed the story line and the author providing the story line from the dog's perspective. Plot not unusual but did feel a degree of anxiety as the story ended.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    I read the original version when it came out. Don't remember the graphic sex scenes and if these were the cuts that were put back in the new version, I would like it better with out. I did like the other additions and did feel it made the book more cohesive.

    The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas' gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil.

    Cynthia says: "Odd Hours-Disappointing"
    "Better than Brother Odd"

    Found this to be a much better second novel with the character than Brother Odd. Character development better. Really enjoyed it!

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    "Nice story"
    Overall

    Too much of the authors philosphy of bleed. If you thought the author's book on New Orleans contained a lot of bleeding political philosophy, you will find this book may set a new record.

    Not a bad read once you get past the political commentary.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Deborah says: "How Does One Manage?"
    "Way too political"
    Overall

    This book spends entirely too much time glorifying New Orleans and blaming all its problems on the President, the Federal Goverment, etc. Story telling is good if you didn't have to listen to all the political diatribes.

    Started quickly and kept going. Enjoyed a new character but this one has a lot of similarities to his previous character. Good plot.

  • Godless: The Church of Liberalism

    Godless is the most explosive book yet from #1 New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter. In this completely original and thoroughly controversial work, Coulter writes, "Liberals love to boast that they are not 'religious', which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion.

    Kenneth says: "Somebodies ears are burning"
    "Most Excellent"
    Overall

    Agree this is Ann's best book yet. A lot of information that I really want to remember. I'm re-reading because so much comes at you so quickly that you can't remember everything. Just like Ann it reads 100 miles per hour. Reader is excellent.

    Ben-Hur could be said to be the first American blockbuster. When it was published in 1880, it sold over two-million copies and was translated into numerous languages. Wallace's original novel has been largely forgotten now, but as this reading shows, the story, together with the sweeping rhythm of the writer's prose, make it ideally suited to audio.

    Jimcin says: "Use the sample"
    "If you liked the movie, you will love the book"
    Overall

    The reader is not the best I've heard, but Lew Wallace's story makes it worth the effort it takes. I think Wallace's writing style was somewhat stilted and would be difficult for anyone to read. But the story overcomes all. Don't miss it!
