    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    I really enjoyed this offering from Andy Weir. It's not necessarily a science fiction story -- I consider it more of a Robinson Crusoe meets technology on Mars. It was very interesting and the characters are funny and likeable. Excellent narration adds to the humor.

    In 431 BC, ancient Greece experienced its own "Pearl Harbor" - a treacherous sneak attack that would mark the start of the bloody war between the democracy of Athens and the tyranny of Sparta. Caught between these superpowers, the independent city-state of Plataea became the arena where their battle for control of all of Greece would begin.

    I highly recommend the start to this series. It's part ancient history, part high action, with great characters. It's gritty, just a warning. I differ from some of the reviews and enjoyed the narrator. Check this out, you will not be disappointed.

    The rescue on Duran Island did not go as planned. Jonathan Quinn knows that someone is responsible. That someone decided throwing people Quinn cares about into the line of fire in a cold-hearted act of self-preservation was a good idea. He also knows that this someone has made a serious mistake. Because when Quinn gets mad, the last place anyone should ever be is in his crosshairs. He will not stop until the guilty pay. Sometimes revenge is best served now.

    A great continuation to the Quinn series. This is Quinn as we have not seen him before -- Quinn Enraged. Be prepared from some brutal surprises. Brick does good credit to Battles' work.

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    Be prepared to take your medicine. I liked the book when it stuck to Gen. Patraeus. I felt it was way too political and Pro-Obama/Anti-Republican. It is not very objective in this regard. James Lurie did a very good job reading the book though.

    This is a sweeping narrative history of the events leading to 9/11, a groundbreaking look at the people and ideas, the terrorist plans, and the Western intelligence failures that culminated in the assault on America. Lawrence Wright's remarkable book is based on five years of research and hundreds of interviews that he conducted in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sudan, England, France, Germany, Spain, and the United States.

    This book is an excellent and thorough history of the roots of Al Qaeda. An exploration of the roots of evil starting in the 1940's. It gives great insight into the Islamist movement. Though it is lengthy, it is so interesting that it reads quite quickly.

    Logan Harper isn't looking for redemption. He just wants to live in peace and forget his troubled past. But one morning his quiet life is upended when he interrupts the attempted murder of his father's best friend Tooney. The next thing Logan knows, he's on his way to Los Angeles, searching for Tooney's missing granddaughter and uncovering a sinister plot connected not only to Tooney's Burmese past, but also to the boardrooms of corporate America.

    Brett Battles does it again with this great new series. It's definitely different from the Jonathan Quinn series (which you should read too), but Logan Harper is an equally thrilling, complex, and interesting character. And also once again, Battles takes us on a thrilling ride across the globe --- all to save a girl. I could not recommend this any more!

    A guttersnipe who has risen through the ranks of the British army, Ensign Sharpe is sailing home to England from his latest campaign against Napoleon. Anticipating an uneventful voyage, the dashing young maverick discovers the intriguing and very married Lady Grace Hale on board the Calliope. But just as he wins his way into her heart, the ship is fired upon and, suddenly, he finds himself in the thick of one of history's most spectacular incidents: the Battle of Trafalgar.

    J. Perry says: "Part 2 is incomplete (otherwise 5 stars)"
    "Bad Narrator"

    I really enjoy the Sharpe books, don't get me wrong. But I had to go back and read this one in print. The narration for me was totally unintelligible.

    "We were as brothers," William Tecumseh Sherman said, describing his relationship with Ulysses S. Grant. They were incontestably two of the most important figures in the Civil War, but until now there has been no book about their victorious partnership and the deep friendship that made it possible.

    This book is clearly written and incisive with lots of great historical details. Flood really brings out the friendship between Sherman and Grant. He is also a surprisingly great narrator. I highly recommend this book.
