    As the author of many classic works on science and philosophy, Richard Dawkins has always asserted the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm it has inflicted on society. He now focuses his fierce intellect exclusively on this subject, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    I am atheist. I was looking for something more interesting than this. I did not find the content thought provoking, No humor. No insights. At best it was an honest discourse on atheism. I appreciate the effort of Dr Dawkins and respect him but this book is a drab. He does not read it well either. And why the two people reading this?

    After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

    With some 66 hits under his belt, Tomislav Bokšic, or Toxic, has a flawless record as hitman for the Croatian mafia in New York. That is, until he kills the wrong guy and is forced to flee the States, leaving behind the life he knows and loves. Suddenly, he finds himself on a plane hurtling toward Reykjavik disguised as American televangelist Father Friendly. With no means of escape from this island devoid of gun shops, this country with absolutely no tradition for contract killing, he is forced to come to terms with his bloody past and reevaluate his future, to tragicomic effect.

    Story

    Unless you get annoyed with the Croatian accent this book is a laugh riot. It is without a serious plot, it just the narrative and style which is funny. A hit man escapes and takes an identity of priest in Iceland. But the events, goof ups, the characters and the wise cracks made the book worth listening to. I was laughing aloud at some instance. I do not think this book would have been as funny if it was read without the accent. It is a short book. Worth for a relaxed trip!

    Check out the sample before you download, there is a thick eastern European accent at may not be something you can decipher.

    Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that's exactly where he arrives - at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Balfour. Upstairs are Danny's now orphaned four-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene - Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the "system". This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him - and to find out what really happened in Danny's house that day!

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Only realy disappointment in this book was that I cam to know that this is kind of a fantasy/sci-fi fiction after going to some part of the book. I had chosen it as a regular "on the earth" thriller. Usually I do not like out of the earth stuff,but I managed to complete this book as the characters are interesting, there is structure to the book which keeps you engaged, it move at the right pace to keep you interetsed for the next event. So, I enjoyed it. You too can, provided you are not turned off by a step out of this planet!

    It is a good thriller.Keeps you gripped even after you have guessed who the culprit is after 60% - 70% of the book. The style of writing, the characters and the pace keeps one interested. The plot is not something which I can say " I have not come across before"
    For Lisa fans it is below expectation. Could have been better, for others give it a go...it will keep you thrilled!

Only D.D. may have seen the killer, but she recalls nothing from the night that may have cost her everything. Now D. D. is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn't just targeting lone women, he is targeting D. D. And D. D. knows there is only one way to take him down: Fear nothing.

    Lisa Gardner keeps you on the edge. Well crafted and well performed.

    On a scale of 1-10 for mystery and thriller lovers:

    Predictability - 7 you will have to cross 60% of the book before your guessing works
    Connection to reality - 4 - Well, the characters and plot are invented for your pleasure, you will not find them anywhere in your neighbourhood. The Detective is as she is in her other novels, well crafted charachter you can connect with. Rest is sheer outrageous imagination.
    The Flow and the plot - 7 - Will keep you gripped form the first 5 minutes
    Fun / humor - There is none in her books ever, so none here too

    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case. But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly, and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight.

    This book has no humor in it. Sprinkled in some areas as a after though by David, but the book is serious mediocre thriller. The creator of the genre called humor mystery thrillers has left out humor in this book. So for Andy Carpenter fans this will be a mega disappointment, For the rest it will be just a regular disappointment.
