    Story
    (106)

    A middle-aged, overweight, and acrophobic newspaper editor Tom Ryan and a little dog, Atticus M. Finch, are an unlikely pair of mountaineers, but after a close friend dies of cancer, the two pay tribute to her by attempting to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire's four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter. Tom and Atticus set out on an adventure of a lifetime that takes them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. Little did they know that their most difficult test would lie ahead, after they returned home. Following Atticus is ultimately a story of transformation....

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

    If you like life, dogs, or family; then look no further. This is it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You think the book is all about a guy and his dog who climb a bunch of mountains, but NO. The first 3 chapters throw you a curve ball but they are just setting you up for the fast ball right down the middle......swing away.

    Linda McKinney is a myrmecologist, a scientist who studies the social structure of ants. Her academic career has left her entirely unprepared for the day her sophisticated research is conscripted by unknown forces to help run an unmanned - and thanks to her research, automated - drone army. Odin is the secretive Special Ops soldier with a unique insight into the faceless enemy who has begun to attack the American homeland with drones programmed to seek, identify, and execute targets.

    What made the experience of listening to Kill Decision the most enjoyable?

    I really like knowing what is going on with the newest technologies.


    Any additional comments?

    I will make this sweet and simple. I read or listen to several books at a time going back and forth as my mood fits. Kill Decision did not allow that, once started you had to keep going and when it was over I wished it could go on but the smile on my face was all I had left. If DAEMON and FREEDOM were to your liking, then get going with Kill Decision.

    The South Seas are a paradise for battle-weary Captain Jack Aubrey and ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin. But their peace is disturbed when Stephen's fancy for a peculiar marine organism lands him overboard. Acting in his usual headstrong fashion, Jack dives into the rescue, unfortunately failing to plan what will happen once they are both in the water watching the sails of the Surprise disappear in the mist.

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

    I have never listened to a "Master and Commander" book before and after seeing the movie my expectations were very different than the actual book. I guess the movie makers just used the title "Far Side of the Earth". With that said I liked the story in general but had a very difficult time understanding the reader. So before you purchase this book you should listen to the clip, if you can understand the reader then this book is a good read.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    This ending is like those of a weekly Television serial. There must be a next one.

    Story

    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.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."
    "A book that entertains and informs....wow"
    Overall

    I truly enjoyed this work and best of all, learned much about the world we now live in.
    This is a wonderfully told history, which if one can only step back, seems to be repeating itself today.
    This book educates, entertains and may be used by the reader to get a more complete understanding of the what, when, where and why of so many events that our history books seem to only offer in bullet points.
    Womens suffrage, Russian Revolution, Americas war with Mexico and oh yes, World War 1. I now understand how a World War could start over something as simple as one small country offending another small country. A very good Book.
