    They are outcasts. Hal, Stig, and the others - they are the boys the others want no part of. Skandians, as any reader of Ranger's Apprentice could tell you, are known for their size and strength. Not these boys. Yet that doesn't mean they don't have skills. And courage - which they will need every ounce of to do battle at sea against the other bands, the Wolves and the Sharks, in the ultimate race. The icy waters make for a treacherous playing field - especially when not everyone thinks of it as playing.

    Story

    As usual Flanagan has created a story that entertains and teaches at the same time. Bullys who wound through words and deeds, personal and interpersonal challenges (alcoholism, facing disabilities, etc) all addressed through the bonds of friendship and teamwork. Great for kids and something for adults too.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story

    Grisham takes a different tact in this book. A lawyer in jail (hmmm) entertaining but the narration is slow and plodding. The book is predictable, including the ending, but it is an enjoyable story for a long trip in the car.

    Even today, almost five decades after John F. Kennedy was slain, the public continues to be captivated by the "Kennedy Curse" and new theories about what really happened on that fateful day in 1963. For nearly 50 years former Secret Service agent Clint Hill has lived with the unimaginable guilt of losing a president on his watch and has obeyed an honor code of silence, refusing to contribute to any books about the assassination. Until now.

    Story

    I was 4 when the President was shot and yet I can still remember where I was and what I was doing. The men in this story are remarkable and dedicated. Their emotional pain over what they perceived as a failure to protect the President is so carefully detailed and thus you can not help but empathize with their experiences.
    It is a true rendering of the life of those who protect the President then and now, and how the men (and now) women who provide for the President's safety givie up their commitment to their own families. In times like, where we are always on the brink of conflict, I can not help but implore audible readers to read this book and applaud the dedication of the Secret Service of today.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Story

    RR is at this best here. One can see that he is building to the climax of the story to date. Characters are getting closer and closer to each other. Its narrative foreplay..Can wait till it culminates.
