    Story
    Would you listen to A Rising Thunder again? Why?

    yes. It is part of a memorable series. The author had built an amazingly complete and complicated universe. I would like the story to move a little faster and have more battles. In this book there was only one and it was not detailed. The politics were more important. and they are important to the story, but I wish for less emphasis on the politics. Never the less. I will grab anything in this series or from this author. Great stuff!! most of all I hate the wait for the next installment.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Rising Thunder?

    The treecats make a decision.


    Which character ??? as performed by Allyson Johnson ??? was your favorite?

    Honor, of course.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I wish it did not ring so true how vulnerable we are to the lies we are told by our leaders.


    Any additional comments?

    Start at the beginning of the series or you will be lost! but it is well worth the many hours of reading. I love the long books!!!!!

With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    Story

    I loved the TV Series and donated to the Kickstrter campaign to get the movie funded. The movie was good and I very much enjoyed this book!!! I hope there are many more to come.
    For those of you who never saw the series or the movie. you will still enjoy the book. It is a good mystery with a great cast. Kristen Bell, who starred as Veronica Mars, Narrates, and does a good job. Give it a shot, and then look up the series and movie on Netflix. You won't be sorry except when it ends.

    Jane reluctantly agrees to accompany her good friend Cordelia Thorn on a peculiar holiday trip: Cordelia's estranged sister, Broadway star Octavia Thorn, has asked them to attend her wedding. Octavia getting married is no surprise, but her candidate for hubby #4 certainly is. Roland Lester is a reclusive 83-year-old retired Hollywood director. No one can understand how the two met. When the bodies start to drop, Jane realizes it might not be love at all that brought the young diva and the aged director together, but something much deeper, and perhaps more sinister.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story but could never quite get why Jane was investigating. She is not a cop, or a P. I. and she barely knew the victim. Jane is a Restaurant owner, though she doesn't seem to go there much.She is a lesbian, but only her closest friends know, And she says nothing when others spout hate toward gays, something that happens a lot in this book.

    The most interesting character is Jane's best friend, Cordelia.

    I enjoyed the story and read the next in the series, which was better, bu I don't think I will buy the rest of the series. I prefer more humor, stronger characters, and less politics in my entertainment.

    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 plainold ""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?"

    Story

    First, if you dont like science, don't get this book. If you don't mind scientific explanations
    which are always laced with irreverent humor, this book is gold.The main character is stuck on mars by himself because his crewmates thought he was dead when they aborted the 6 month mission due to a killer sand storm. Nobody is coming back to Mars for 5 years.
    What can our hero do to stay alive with no communication and food for 6 people for 6 months.With yankee inginuity and an irrepressable spirit, he has to survive disco music, 70's tv shows, NASA, and Mars. I loved it!

    Story

    I was worried at first at the slow drawl of the reader, but that got better and the story was a fresh twist on th usual supernatural fare. I enjoyed it very much.It is not often that a house is a main character. These are not the b movie vampires and werewolves. The Vampires are a warlike religeous cult from another planet. If this is the start of a series, I will buy the next one. My only real problem is I wish it had more humor, there there was some. I thought it had potential for much more.

    Katie Chandler had always heard that New York is a weird and wonderful place, but this small-town Texas gal had no idea how weird until she moved there. Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she's a little too normal to make a splash in the big city. Working for an ogre of a boss doesn't help. Then, seemingly out of the blue, Katie gets a job offer from Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., a company that tricks of the trade to the magic community. For MSI, Katie's ordinariness is an asset.

    Danger, excitement and love - this is how the glamorous Phryne Fisher is determined to live her life in her second enticing adventure. Walking the wings of a Tiger Moth plane in full flight ought to be enough excitement for most people, but not Phryne Fisher, amateur detective, woman of mystery, as delectable as the finest chocolate and as sharp as razor blades.

    Plenty of humor, great characters, A bit of history, and a good mystery.
    My only complaint is that I wish Phyne was a little less free with her "favors."
    She is a gutsy lady with a big heart and a sense of humor. The narrator is good and the stories are clever. I will read them all with gusto!

    Lily Ivory hopes for a normal life when she opens Aunt Cora's Closet. With her magical knack for vintage fashion - she can sense vibrations of the past from clothing and jewelry - her store becomes a big hit. But when a client is murdered and children start disappearing from the Bay Area, Lily may be the only one who can unravel the crime.

    This is the start to a series. I love a good series but won't be buying this one. It barely kept my interest, but I did finish it. The reader almost puts me to sleep. The characters were OK, the only humor was the gargoyle. A book about a witch needs some humor to make it work. I geuss the one word I would use to describe this book is "Forgettable"
    I won't remember it by next week.

    Bruno is a former soldier who has embraced the pleasures and slow rhythms of country life - living in his restored shepherd's cottage; patronizing the weekly market; sparring with, and basically ignoring, the European Union bureaucrats from Brussels. He has a gun but never wears it; he has the power to arrest but never uses it. But then the murder of an elderly North African who fought in the French army changes everything and galvanizes Bruno's attention.

    Wow. I loved this book. A slow start but it grabs you, and I loved the village and the characters! I wanted to go live there and know these people. Add in a murder mystery with its roots in the history of this region of France, and you have one of my favorite books.
    Part of that was because I was so surprised by it.
    Wrong title I think!
    Give it a try!
    I am going out to get a french cookbook!
