    High in Nepal, a monastery erupts with savagery and madness. Deep in a German mine, abomination wears the innocent face of a child. Hidden in the jungles of Africa, experiments rooted in a dark past have found fertile ground again.

    Overall

    Didn't think too much of this book at the beginning, but eventually the plot thickened and I was caught trying to figure out what was happening and trying to tie everything together. Narration was good and the end leaves you with a bit of a question.

    PECCAVI. The Latin word is scrawled in blood at the scene of a young woman's brutal murder: I HAVE SINNED. It's a chilling Christmas greeting for Boston medical examiner Maura Isles and Detective Jane Rizzoli, who swiftly link the victim to controversial celebrity psychiatrist Joyce O'Donnell, Jane's professional nemesis and member of a sinister cabal called the Mephisto Club.

    Ramona says: "Must Read"
    "Start with earlier books"
    Overall

    This is a very good book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. However, if this is your first Gerritson book, I advise you read the surgeon and body double first, as these stories lend themselves to this story. I didn't do that and now wish I would have. Regrettably, I know the conclusions of those two books, and would have enjoyed listening to those 2 prior to this.

    Stoner knew. The fiery object hurtling toward the Earth was an alien spacecraft. But the world might never know. He was trapped in an iron cordon of secrecy, for the discovery had shattered the world power balance, setting off a brutal struggle for supremacy that raged from the sacred halls of the Vatican to the corridors of the Kremlin and the Pentagon. The forces of fear and treachery would use any weapon at their command, from mind war to sabotage, to keep the world in darkness.

    Noe says: "Not Quite "Rendezvous With Rama""
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After listening to quite possibly the worse book I have ever heard (the ruins) this was quite a relief. The conclusion was mildly disappointing but that is about it. Not a lot of sci-fi type content, more political, but again, it held my attention and I would recommend this book highly.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    "It SUCKS"
    Overall

    This book sucks. What a waste. If you want to read about people dying with no rhyme or reason, this is your book. It sucks. From the literary standpoint, it sucks. I know I am being somewhat crude here, but did I tell you it sucks. Doesn't even deserve 1 star. I deserve a refund. It sucks.

  • The Husband

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

    David says: "Excellent read!"
    "Average"
    Overall

    I am used to Koontz having someone or something special in the book. This is nothing more than a kidnapping mystery with some strange characters. It was ok to listen to. If your having a tough time trying to find a book and your a Koontz fan, you might like this.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    Toni says: "Remarkable!"
    "Ending was disappointing"
    Overall

    Ok, so I was really into the storyline. Very timely as well. Pre 9/11, but boy, talk about prescient. Anyway, here I am listening to this story trying to figure out the ending and I am left with what. Nothing. As another reviewer stated. The beginning is very good, the middle good and the end, well, like eating a porterhouse and saving the tenderloin for the end only to find it tough and without flavor....

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Bill says: "Great narration, disappointing story"
    "A nice listen"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book. I have "read" several Koontz books, and some have been a bit spookier, but this was enjoyable. The narrator and the manner in which the book is written (sometimes from a first person perspective) made it easy to listen too. Not too heavy, not too light. If you want something heavy and in depth, don't get this. There is a level of suspense to the story, and in the end, some questions remain.

    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    Timothy says: "One of the Best Stories I've Ever Heard"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    A very good listen. I only wish I would have read the previous book first. The only cons I have with this is the narrator tends to stay on accent even after a character speaks. The author also tends to repeat himself, though I only can think of twice. The story however, is the main point, and in today's political climate it is refreshing to hear a story about people with courage to face down a threat...

    Bernard Goldberg takes dead aim at the America Bashers (the cultural elites who look down their snobby noses at "ordinary" Americans and detest so much of what this country is about); the Hollywood Blowhards (incredibly ditzy celebrities who think they're smart just because they're famous); the TV Schlockmeisters (including the one whose show has been compared to a churning mass of maggots devouring rotten meat); the Intellectual Thugs, and many more.

    Marc says: "Some good points (really), kinda partisan."
    "Easy, insightful read"
    Overall

    Pretty basic book. Tells you some things you should already know. Not for the liberally minded individual as it may not be to their liking, though I think the author nails it. On some people he is probably a bit harsh, whereas others he plainly describes their lunacy.
