    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Overall

    What an interesting listen. The characters were well placed in the history. A well researched work of Historical fiction. John Lee did a great job of narrating. I look forward to the next installment in this series.

  • Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Excellent!!!"
    Overall

    What a wonderful harrowing story of perseverance and survival. It was hard to stop listening to this true story, and renewed my appreciation to those men who served our Country. The story was well researched and written. The narration was also well done. Highly recommended and well worth the credit.

  • Skippy Dies

    This touching and uproarious novel by author Paul Murray made everyone’s best fiction of 2010 lists, including The Washington Post, Financial Times, Village Voice, and others. Why Skippy dies and what happens next is the mystery that links the boys of Dublin’s Seabrook College (Ruprecht Van Doren, the overweight genius obsessed with string theory; Carl, the teenager drug dealer and borderline psychotic; Philip Kilfether, the basketball-playing midget) to their parents and teachers in ways that no one could have imagined.

    Laura says: "Funny, touching, entertaining"
    "Very disappointed!!!"
    Overall

    This book is not good. I do not consider myself a conservative person, and generally have no complaints regarding content of books. Unfortunately after 4 hours of going nowhere, and then hearing various Simpsons characters having sex with each other, I had to give up on this title. Not worth the credit. It is interesting to see how few reviews it is getting given that is has been a best seller. There are a lot more quality titles available than this trash.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Excellent !!!!!"
    Overall

    What a great trilogy. Simon Vance does an amazing job narrating. Well worth the credits for all three books. I am sorry to see these characters come to an end just as we are really get to know them. A great series like this one does not come around often enough.
