    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I sometimes wonder if Grisham is still writing his own books...they just don't have that "can't put them down quality" anymore.

    Story

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

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

    Yes - to some friends - need to be open to steam punk and science fiction - which isn't clear at the beginning.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    For much of the book, planned on giving it all 5 stars - but had to suspend disbelief so much towards end, and it got weaker as it wrapped up the mystery.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Nate


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very hard to put down.


    Any additional comments?

    Fascinating as they were figuring out the mystery, lost steam with resolution. Very good narration.

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Pamela says: "The circus of your dreams"
    "Best read of the year!"

    Where does The Night Circus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved this book. Best of the best.


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    If you were a fan of the tv show


    If you could take any character from The Night Circus out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The sisters - get their take on what they were seeing and perceiving.


    Any additional comments?

    The foundation of the book is magic - if you're in the group that has no issue with suspending disbelief you will LOVE this book.

  • Explosive Eighteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    What would have made Explosive Eighteen better?

    New Characters


    Any additional comments?

    I've been a fan of the Plum series for a long time, and had laugh out loud fun reading the characters and the funny stories. I love the main characters, but a big part of the fun is her interaction with new characters. The last two books in the series though are just a rehash, without any breakout quirky new characters; and I hate to say it but I think it's time to wind the series up between Joe and Ranger. I found I read the last two books hoping for a final ending rather than a good read.
