    Gregory Maguire's Wicked Years series became national best sellers and the basis for a hit Tony-winning Broadway musical. Now, Maguire returns with the final installment in his transformative work, a thrilling and compulsively readable saga in which the fate of Oz is decided at last.

    A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

    Where does Gideon's Corpse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is another Preston Child wonder


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

    The hell with sleeping


    What about David W. Collins’s performance did you like?

    I liked John Glover of the first book much better. but this guy is OK


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

    The ending was non predictable which is nice with thrillers because so many of them are.

    Johnny Shooter was sentenced to hang at noon. But Judge Isaac Parker, widely known as the "Hanging Judge", made Johnny an offer he couldn't refuse. The judge made him a Deputy United State Marshal, then sent his new deputy after the worst-of-the-worst outlaws the Indian territory had to offer, with the orders not to burden the court by bringing them back for trial. Now, rumor has it that whenever outlaws gather around a campfire, the word is: "The only thing worse than standing before the Hanging Judge is hearing that Johnny Shooter is on your trail!"

    If you could sum up Shooter in three words, what would they be?

    It is a nice historical fiction western. Everything you need, guns, outlaws, adventure, horses, and a woman.


    What does Gene Engene bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    I've have been a fan of Gene Engene since the 1980's. He has the ability to make a bad book great.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all.

    aaron says: "A LESSON in How to Write Smart, Dark, ADULT SciFi"
    "good but confusing"
    Overall

    The mystery of this novel is great. However the understanding of time is so confusing I do not know how it passed the editors and got the Hugo award. If you ignore the concept of time and ignore some of the abbreviations the story is great. There is a whole cast of readers to help dramatist the story too. Just wish the author could explain the confusing aspect of time in the story.

    In this stunning sequel to The Golden Compass, the intrepid Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld, Cittagazze, where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: twelve-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

    Geoffrey says: "The second book in a fantastic trilogy!"

    Like the Golden Compass, intense, thrilling, thinking, a wonderful story only emphasized even more with a great audio drama cast.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Arnold says: "A Terrific Book"
    "Golden Compass"
    Overall

    Could not put it down. One of the few books where the author is a good reader, not to mention a full drama cast to boot. Great story had to get the next book right away.
