    Story

    Deep in the isolated Northwest Territories, four friends are on the trip of a lifetime. Dropped by helicopter into the remote Canadian wilderness, Hutch, Terry, Phil, and David are looking to escape the events of a tumultuous year - a bitter divorce, bankruptcy, depression, and job loss - for two weeks of hunting, fishing, and camping. They quickly discover that another group has targeted the region and the hamlet of Fiddler Falls for a more menacing purpose: to field-test the ultimate weapon.

    Brenda says: "A pageturner every page....."
    "Good nonstop action"
    Overall

    This is a goood action novel that opens strong and builds all the way through. A group of vacationing hunters take on some young techno saavy punks who are terrorizing a town-and them. A little far fetched at times, but still a good romp. Good narrator.

    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    "excellent in every way"
    Overall

    This was an absolutely wonderful book in every way. The narrator was top notch and the writing drew me into a completely different world. The abridgement was excellent-I would not have known it is much longer unabridged. I may even get the unabridged version to to experience more magic. Highly recommended if you love a good read and don't have a lot of time.

    While her father is in hiding after attempts on his life, 12-year-old Cleopatra records in her diary how she fears for her own safety and hopes to survive to become queen of Egypt some day.

    Karla says: "very good!"
    "I was a teenage Cleopatra"
    Overall

    I was not able to finish listening to this one. the narrator's voice was annoying and hard to understand. I doubt the real Cleopatra would have accomplished as much as she did if she had whined like this. She was also supposed to have had a musical voice--not like this narrator.

    When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time she becomes his lover--then she inexplicably disappears. When Michael next sees her, he is a young law student, and she is on trial for a hideous crime. As he watches her refuse to defend her innocence, Michael gradually realizes that Hanna may be guarding a secret she considers more shameful than murder.

    Ella says: "Dysfunctional"
    "why not two adults?"
    Overall

    This is a story about an older woman and teenage boy who get involved with one another-deeper than they thought. I am disgusted with the child abuse aspect of it--I think the story could have easily been between two adults instead of a boy and a woman. The rest of the story is good once you get past the pedophile beginning.

    The child of a scheming father and ruthless mother, Lady Jane Grey is born during a time when ambition dictates action. Cousin to Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I, she is merely a pawn in a political and religious game in which one false step means a certain demise. But Lady Jane has remarkable qualities that help her to withstand the constant pressures of the royal machinery far better than most expect.

    Jt says: "Superior listen!"
    "Audible treat"
    Overall

    This book was pure delight to listen to. The story is well written and extremely well narrated. The characters and time period seem to come to life. I was completely drawn into the story of Lady Jane and her sad life in the English court. Well done.

    Six months after the blood-soaked conclusion of Moscow Rules, Allon is in Umbria, trying to resume his honeymoon with his new wife, Chiara, when a colleague pays him a shocking visit. The man who saved Allon's life in Moscow and was then resettled in England has vanished without a trace. British intelligence is sure he was a double agent all along, and they blame Allon for planting him.

    "my first audio book"
    Overall

    This is my first audio book, and I believe I picked a good one to start with! I really liked the narration-it seemed to help me keep track of the characters and plot. This is a fun espionage type of book that moves to exotic places around the world. This is also the first book by Silva that I have read and again I did well. I recommend it.
