    The Anthologist follows Paul Chowder - a once-in-a-while-published kind of poet who is writing the introduction to a new anthology of poetry. He's having a hard time getting started because his career is floundering; his girlfriend, Roz, has recently left him; and he is thinking about the great poets throughout history who have suffered far worse and deserve to feel sorry for themselves.

    Orson says: "Ramblings of a narcissist"
    "Too Introspective"
    Overall

    This book is very confusing, takes a very long time to get going and is ,so difficult I could not finish listening to it: and I can listen to just about anything!!!

    New York Times best-selling author Phillip Margolin returns to the corridors of power in Washington, D.C., with an exciting thriller about a ghost ship and the President's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court. Sarah Woodruff, on death row in Oregon for murdering her lover, John Finley, has appealed her case to the Supreme Court just when a prominent justice resigns, leaving a vacancy.

    Daniel says: "Good but..."
    "Another thrilling mystery"
    Overall

    A continuation of the previous book...which grabbed and kept my attention...unfortunately, it was clear who some of the bad guys were early into the book...but there were still lots of surprises.

    Paul Auster's signature work, The New York Trilogy, consists of three interlocking novels: City of Glass, Ghosts, and The Locked Room - haunting and mysterious tales that move at the breathless pace of a thriller.

    James says: "Great Book of Pretentiousness"
    "A series of bland short stories"
    Overall

    Just didn't like it. Just didn't capture my imagination or my any part of any of my memories of NYC where I lived for 12 years.

    Summer's Path is the remarkable story of Don Newport, an engineer that comes face to face with his personal destiny under extraordinary circumstances. After losing his job and his health insurance, Don learns he has a terminal disease with only a few months left to live. On his death bed, he meets Robert, a brazen angel of death that promises to help Don with a graceful exit.

    ArtC says: "A bad new-age after-school special"
    "How did this get published"
    Overall

    I tried several times to listen to this....the narration is bland, the characters shallow and unsympathetic and the plot development is slow. I would prefer to give it no stars, I deleted from my library.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "The last one was the best"
    Overall

    I finally warmed to all of the prickly characters.I was a bit disappointed at the ending but maybe he knew this would be his last book.

    Laurence Levain was a culinary superstar: the high-profile owner and chef of Chez Laurence, an internationally renowned restaurant in Washington, D.C. When Levain collapses in his clogs the night before a star-studded black-tie benefit dinner, all bets are on his soaring cholesterol level. But one person has her doubts: Chas Wheatley, the Washington Examiner's saber-penned restaurant critic.

    Dale says: "Phyllis Richman did it!!!"
    "More Please"
    Overall

    Although the food described is way out of my league, the writing is quick; the twists and turns unexpected and the personal reflections right on.
