    Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender’s father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug, Culovort, suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug manufacturer’s disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove that something more sinister is going on at Schiffer Hartwin.

    Mike says: "Not the best - Terrible narration!"

    Overall

    I never write reviews but I want to save others from the pain of listening to this book. There is so much stupid detail about stuff that has nothing to do with the story that it is nothing short of painful to hear. Maybe the abridged version would be better.

    What's the first thing many women do when they go home? Make a dash for the white wine in the refrigerator. In Her Best-Kept Secret, journalist Gabrielle Glaser uncovers this hidden-in-plain-sight drinking epidemic - but doesn't cause you to recoil in alarm. She is the first to document that American women are drinking more often than ever and in ever-larger quantities. And she is the first to show that contrary to the impression fostered by reality shows and Gossip Girl,young women alone are not driving these statistics - their moms and grandmothers are, too.

    What was most disappointing about Gabrielle Glaser’s story?

    This is a diatribe on her dislike of AA. She does not have the experience to make such judgements.

    Don't bother with this book.

    Story

    At an exclusive school somewhere outside of Arlington, Virginia, students aren't taught history, geography, or mathematics - at least not in the usual ways. Instead, they are taught to persuade. Here the art of coercion has been raised to a science. Students harness the hidden power of language to manipulate the mind and learn to break down individuals by psychographic markers in order to take control of their thoughts. The very best will graduate as "poets": adept wielders of language who belong to a nameless organization that is as influential as it is secretive.

    What would have made Lexicon better?

    A story that moved along to something of interest.


    What could Max Barry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it less boring and have the story be about something.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Heather Corrigan and Zach Appelman ’s performances?

    Sure, they were OK


    What character would you cut from Lexicon?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    This was painful to listen to. I tried for a couple of hours but it just went on and on with no real story, just wandering around aimlessly

    Story

    Nick Heller is tough, smart, and stubborn. And in his line of work, it's essential. Trained in the Special Forces, Nick is a high-powered intelligence investigator - exposing secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden. He's a guy you don't want to mess with. He's also the man you call when you need a problem fixed. Desperate, with nowhere else to run, Nick's nephew, Gabe makes that call one night.

    Earl says: "Excellent weaving and unexpected"
    "Terrible Reader"
    Overall

    I have read a couple of Finder's books and like them but I must say that after listening to about on hour of this book, I can't stand it any more. The reader uses this whining nasal voice for the teenage boy and his mother that has driven me to quite listening. Too bad because I think this is probably an excellent book.
