    At the heart of this third volume of his Western saga remains the beautiful and determined Tasmin Berrybender, now married to the "Sin Killer" and mother to their young son, Monty. Although Tasmin intends Montyto be an English gentleman like his grandfather, he lives the childhood of a savage.

    Sanford Rosenberg says: "A perfect conclusion to an outstanding trilogy!"
    "Great reader"
    Overall

    Alfred Molina is one of the best readers I've heard on an audiobook. And the story is classic McMurtry.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Devin says: "Great Epic Scifi"
    "Pandora's Star"
    Overall

    Excellent story. However, it could probably be shorter. There is a lot of detail that has nothing to do with the plot or the characters, like the loving descriptions of train engines (Aren't there editors to catch stuff like this?). Also, the narration is just so-so. This narrator has a tendency to drop his volume near the end of sentences, so that I frequently found myself having to rewind a bit and turn up the volume in order to hear what he'd said.

    Not since the publication of his own beloved classic Lonesome Dove has there been a novel like this one, another big, brilliant, unputdownable saga of the West from Larry McMurtry. Telegraph Days is at once a major work of literature and a completely absorbing read, not just great fiction, but fiction on a great scale.

    Ron says: "Good McMurtry, not great"
    "Great story, great reader"
    Overall

    Annie Potts does an outstanding job as the reader for this book. I wish she would do more. Also, a good story.

    A secret U.S. military dig has uncovered ancient ruins two miles beneath the ice of Antarctica and activated the ultimate weapon. Now rogue American archaeologist Conrad Yeats and beautiful Vatican linguist Serena Serghetti must team up to unlock the secret origins of human civilization before a global cataclysm ends it.

    Autumn says: "Stargate+Da Vinci Cod= Raising Atlantis"

    Overall

    Good story idea poorly executed.

    In this brilliant debut novel, Noah's family (or Noe, as he's called here), his wife, sons, and daughters-in-law, tell what it's like to live with a man touched by God, while struggling against events that cannot be controlled or explained. When Noe orders his sons to build an ark, he can't tell them where the wood will come from. When he sends his daughters-in-law out to gather animals, he can offer no directions, money, or protection.

    Sharon says: "A frolicking tale"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Well written, good readers.
