    When hunters from around the world gather in Las Vegas for a conference, a creature left over from a World War Two weapons experiment wakes up and goes on a rampage across the desert. A not-so-friendly wager between the rival companies turns into a race to see who can bag the mysterious creature first. Only there is far more to this particular case than meets the eye, and as Hunters fall prey to their worst nightmares, Owen Zastava Pitt and the staff of Monster Hunter International have to stop an ancient god from turning Sin City into a literal hell on earth.

    Any additional comments?

    A solid transitional book. I tend to dislike books there pretty much all the action is in a very short time frame, around 24 hours in this case. I would like to see more long term character development, instead of just a gratuitous action novel.

    Story

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Delightful and Enjoyable"
    "Some of the most obnoxious narration ever."

    Story

    Not a bad premise or writing but the narration, particularly the voice of the dragon, is grating and obnoxious. Doyle sounds more like a Dad reading a bedtime story to his kid and playing the part of a scary monster than a professional narrator. Very overdone.

    On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin's bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life. At the same hospital, researcher Dr. Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories. Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience - but the memories that flash through Jerrison's mind are not his memories.

    Ron says: "Fun Read"

    What did you like best about Triggers? What did you like least?

    I have a hard time understanding how Robert J. Sawyer manages to come up with such great ideas for his novels, and then turns out an entirely mediocre book from them. Sawyer consistently adds diversity to his characters just for the sake of diversity, and it takes away from the story. Not to mention trying to insert little tidbits of his own life when they are entirely unnecessary (The dungeons and dragons scene anyone?).


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    A few of the voices for characters are actively annoying, in particular female characters. They all have a constant whining feel to them, and it gets old fast.
