    There are 206 bones in the human body. Forensic anthropologists know them intimately, can read in them stories of brief or long lives and use them to reconstruct every kind of violent end. 206 Bones opens with Tempe regaining consciousness and discovering that she is in some kind of very small, very dark, very cold enclosed space. She is bound, hands to feet. Who wants Tempe dead, or at least out of the way, and why? Tempe begins slowly to reconstruct...

    M. Chinander says: "Wow, pretty sure this is the in the series"
    "Too Much French and WAY too technical"
    Overall

    I can't finish this book. I'm turning it off half way through. Perhaps there was character development in past books...but I find none here. The names are all french - difficult to distinguish with my simple English-only speaking experience. I Wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this one.

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    This has been my favorite of all of Diana Gabaldon's books. I laughed, I cried....I couldn't get enough. Beautifully written.

    Dancing at the Rascal Fair by National Book Award nominee Ivan Doig captures the passion and tenacity of turn-of-the-century immigrants struggling to build new lives amidst Montana’s windswept Rockies. The tale unfolds into a contest of the heart between Anna Ramsay and Angus McCaskill—kept apart by obligations—as they and their stormy kin vie to tame the brutal land.

    Dana C. Nicolay says: "New Favorite"
    "Slow start - but a sweet story"
    Overall

    Beautifully written - poetic, poignant and powerful. I almost gave up after the first few chapters but I'm glad I stuck it out. This book delivers amazing visuals and leaves the reader thinking about one's own relationships through life's journeys.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Sue Schreiber says: "A very satisfying ending"
    "Disappointed - not nearly as good as the first two"
    Overall

    I couldn't wait for this book to come out after reading the first two in this series. This book left me rather disappointed. At one point I stopped listening because it just seemed "more of the same". The plot was disjointed, the characters had much less depth and the action scenes were just a bit over the top (and very video gamish).

    The author seemed to just want this series finished....too bad because I think it had the potential for much better things.

    Summer, 1954. U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels has come to Shutter Island, home of Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane. Along with his partner, Chuck Aule, he sets out to find an escaped patient, a murderess named Rachel Solando, as a hurricane bears down upon them.

    But nothing at Ashecliffe Hospital is what it seems. Is he there to find a missing patient? Or has he been sent to look into rumors of Ashecliffe's radical approach to psychiatry?

    Barry says: "Outstanding psychological thriller set in the 50s"
    "Predictable and Boring....."
    Overall

    I thought I'd do better than going to the movie by listening to the book. The build up at the beginning left me very disappointed. Ho....Hum.......

    Story

    At Princeton University, a famed geneticist dies inside a biohazard lab. In Rome, a Vatican archaeologist is found dead in St. Peter's Basilica. In Africa, a U.S. senator's son is slain outside a Red Cross camp. The three murders on three continents bear a horrifying connection: all the victims are marked by a Druidic pagan cross burned into their flesh. The bizarre murders thrust Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force into a race against time to solve a riddle going back centuries.

    Bob says: "mystery - history storys"
    "Way too much action!"
    Overall

    By the time I was 1/3 of the way through this one I was ready to fastforward through the action scenes. The underlying theme was great but it seemed the author needed to "fill in" with one-two punches to make a book out of it.
    A bit fantastical how it all fits together...EVERY last piece in the end.
