  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Overall

    Ken Follet is a master. His books are modern day classics. Well researched and written a joy to experience. John Lee has to be the best Narrator in the business. He could make a dryer instruction manual sound interesting. In Fall of Giants, as in his other works, Lee’s consistency and character distinction are impressive indeed. Where this complex and intertwined story line with numerous characters would have been a disaster in another’s hands in Lee’s capable grasp the story unfolds clearly and beautifully. A book to savor.

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While Arte Johnson is a very good narrator his style was a poor choice for this story.

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

    After spending so much time with the charachters in the previous bookd it was so good to hear them again. Very sorry to see them go.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a fitting end for people who have been through so much tradegy. Not all sunshine and flowers but as real as it could have been.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    why Katniss of course

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    If you could sum up The Hunger Games in three words, what would they be?

    Just Fantastic!


    What other book might you compare The Hunger Games to and why?

    Maybe Twilight or Harry Potter , probably because of the new world created by the author. The protagonist is strong and well defined. Anyone can feel for their plight.


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

    both several times. I need tinted windows.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    If you could sum up A Discovery of Witches in three words, what would they be?

    REALLY slow starting but worth the wait, once it got moving it was very enjoyable. Though the ending was disappointing it did leave the reader looking forward to the next novel.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A nie twist on traditional lore.


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

    I really enjoyed the narrator’s portrayal of the various characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not a chance!

    Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorists worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.

    Lesley says: "Flynn never disappoints"

    Vince Flynn does it again, a great prequel to the previous novels. I enjoyed hearing the making of the man. Narration is great too. Big Fan! Keep em coming

    Christopher Moore is Hilarious! A fun volume that continues the chronicles of the countess Jodi and vampire Flood. Creative presentation from other character perspectives makes this one a treat. Keep em coming. We want Moore!

    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    Jason J Preston says: "Another Outstandung Vince Flynn Book"
    "Mitch Rapp is the man!"
    Overall

    Vince Flynn is just great!. I love his no nonsence approach. This book MOVES.
