    Jason Kolarich has spent the past year struggling to recover from the horrific deaths of his wife and baby daughter. On the night of their deaths, Kolarich was at the office, awaiting a call from a confidential informant named Ernesto Ramirez — a call that never came. Kolarich blames himself not only for the deaths of his wife and child, but for the informant’s murder as well. He can’t bring back his family, but he can find out who killed Ramirez and bring the killer to justice.

    Great book about how our political system works behind the scenes. Although this is complete fiction it is much of how it works in real life. Great read. Interesting characters. Well worth the credit!

    Charlie Gordon knows that he isn't very bright. At 32, he mops floors in a bakery and earns just enough to get by. Three evenings a week, he studies at a center for mentally challenged adults. But all of this is about to change for Charlie. As part of a daring experiment, doctors are going to perform surgery on Charlie's brain. They hope the operation and special medication will increase his intelligence, just as it has for the laboratory mouse, Algernon.

    Good conclusion to a series. Kept you wondering what the heck happened. I liked it. It wasn't incredibly wonderful but it wasn't horrible. If you're read the first 2 book its a good conclution.

    What if you could know exactly what your friends are thinking? High school student Winter Reynolds can, but there's a catch... She can only read people's thoughts when she's kissing them. When a member of the track team is murdered, Winter has an opportunity to use her special ability to find the killer. Trouble is, kissing everyone on the track team isn't such a good idea when you have a new boyfriend. Talk about complications! Should Winter persevere using her secret power to catch the murderer still in their midst, even if it means risking her relationship with her one true love?

    I hesitated when I read a review that said it is for young people. It's about young people as in Seniors in high school. That realliy isn't the point. It is also one of the most enjoyable books I've read and I read a lot! The characters are wonderful & believeable. The story is good and the ending is a suprise and one op the best parts of the book is the whitty dialog that actually made me lol many times! I can't wait to read more from this author.

    He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

    This book seemed to break out of Dean's "formula" in many ways. It was well written & very interesting with an unexpected and beautiful ending. The entire book I kept wondering what is it? What is it about him? I won't say more but I'm sure you will ask the same and I NEVER would have guessed! See if you can. It is so unexpected and unpredictable I bet you won't. Enjoy this one!

    Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

    I've been waiting for this since the last one. Once you meet Agent Pendergast you can't wait to see what's next. My personal opinion is start at the beginning with The Relic. Not a bad book in the series! The credit is well worth it.
    Its easy to see the sequel to this one. Can't wait! Again!!!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. It is unique, engrossing subject matter and great character development along with great characters.


    What other book might you compare 11-22-63 to and why?

    If you're expecting scary you won't get it. At least not in the way of things that go bump in the night. It's about the assassination of John F. Kennedy which is not a topic I'm particularly interested in.Actually it's about what if the assassination never happened.This book is absolutely worth the credit. It's actually worth more than 1. I've been turned off Steven King for a while. I liked The Dome but other than that I haven't really liked much he's written in the last 10 years.This one rivals The Stand in it's memorability, however it's a completely different type of book. Don't miss this one!


    What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?

    His narration was perfect!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Can't say! It would give an important event away.

    A continuation of The Lincoln Lawyer. If you liked it you'll like this one as well.
