    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Patricia says: "Newest Sigma Force is a little off"

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story, as I have with all of James Rollins' Sigma Force novels. However, the narration was awful. All the accents sounded Asian, including the Italians. I think I would have enjoyed this story much more if I would have read it myself.

    When piano prodigy Norma Herr was healthy, she was the most vibrant personality in the room. But as her schizophrenic episodes became more frequent and more dangerous, she withdrew into a world that neither of her daughters could make any sense of. After being violently attacked for demanding that Norma seek help, Mira Bartok and her sister changed their names and cut off all contact in order to keep themselves safe.

    Story
    What was most disappointing about Mira Bartok’s story?

    The story was random ramblings of a woman's memories of her childhood, scattered with ramblings from her mentally ill mother's journal, with bits and pieces of current time fit in. I could not get into the story even after listening for 2 hours.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book jacket makes it sound like an interesting story.

    "I've experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?" (Ellen DeGeneres)

    Julie says: "Not so much."

    Story
    What disappointed you about Seriously...I'm Kidding?

    I love Ellen DeGeneres...and I was very excited that she was reading her own book. The story itself rambled on from one stream of thought to the next, none of which were very interesting.


    What didn’t you like about Ellen DeGeneres’s performance?

    Her tone was drab, the moments she went off on tangents (one involved me having to listen to her eating an apple) were awful.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was incredibly disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a couple funny moments, and some good points, but they were few and far between.
