    What did you like best about Pale Horse? What did you like least?

    Least is easy - it practically ends in the middle of a sentence! Okay slight exaggeration there but not by much!

    Most - the expanding of some minor characters from the earlier books.


    Would you recommend Pale Horse to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not until the next book in the series is out


    Did Macleod Andrews do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, great job with accents.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    As a stand alone, no. But a movie based on the series sure.


    Any additional comments?

    Yea when does the next book come out?

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    This first book of the Holding Their Own series, A Story of Survival, is set in the year 2015, when the world is burdened by the second Great Depression. The United States, already weakened by internal strife, becomes the target of an international terror plot. A series of attacks results in thousands of casualties and disables the country's core infrastructure. The combination of economic hardship and the staggering blow of the terror attacks results in a collapse of the government.

    What would have made Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival better?

    This may actually be a good book I can't tell the narration is so bad I cannot make myself sit through it.


    What was most disappointing about Joe Nobody’s story?

    It honestly sounds like they recorded while sitting inside a culvert.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It could not have been worse so anything would be an improvement.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Holding Their Own: A Story of Survival?

    This is beyond editing

    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.

    What did you love best about The Eye of God?

    The story line is very current and very activating.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, this series usually follows a single group, this book was different and it kept me on the edge knowing they would converge but never knowing how.


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

    Yes Owen Vigor was talking to Rachel in Mongolia. Don't want to be a spoiler but if you've followed this series it will grab you too.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    What did you like best about Never Go Back? What did you like least?

    Reacher is officially over done! There really aren't any new story lines for this character and Childs is totally reaching (pun intended) in this one.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Sam was the only interesting character in the story and then nothing


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill could read the phone book and I would still listen to the whole thing which is the only reason I now how this one ended.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Nope


    Any additional comments?

    Come on Lee let Reacher go! You are far to great a writer for this kind of drivel.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    Crais' writing style, a "multiple" narrative where I never had to go back to figure out which character was in the moment.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie, she yanked my heart out and then gave it back.


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The male eye view


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have to admit it made me cry several times, however they were not all sad tears.


    Any additional comments?

    He rushed the ending a bit, unless of course he is planning on turning this into a series. Hint hint.

    Action-packed from the start, Hidden Order demonstrates yet again why Brad Thor is the "master of thrillers". A string of high-profile kidnappings has Washington, D.C., in a frenzy. When the victims begin turning up dead, frenzy turns to panic. And when the ransom demand is finally made public, panic will turn to terror. In Brad Thor's riveting new thriller, the stakes have never been higher, nor the lines between good and evil so hard to discern.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are definitely parts that make me chuckle. I get his sense of humor.


    Any additional comments?

    Brad writes very cognizant and contemporary books. Hidden Order is no exception and may even be a glimpse forward.

    America is falling, ready to join the Roman Empire as a distant memory in the annals of history. The year is 2027. Tired and desperate, the American people are deep in the middle of The Second Great Depression. The Florida coastline is in ruins from the most powerful hurricane on record; a second just like it is bearing down on the state of Texas. For the first time in history, the Middle East has united as one and amassed the most formidable army the world has seen since the Third Reich.
