    Imzadi ll is a compelling untold chapter in the history of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The special bond between Troi and Commander Riker was explored in Peter David's earlier novel, Imzadi. Now, he examines the heart of Deanna Troi from an altogether different perspective, as he reveals for the first time the full story of Troi's troubled romance with Lieutenant Commander Worf.

    For those of you who are Star Trek Fans.... Avoid this audio book. This is a classic example of the description being better than the actual story. Author, Peter David, constantly shift his attention between main characters, making it hard to follow and harder to care.

    On trial for assassinating her husband, the President of the United States, Beth MacMann hires an old flame from law school as her defense attorney. In this hilarious send-up of both politicos and lawyers, Buckley reestablishes himself as one of today's premiere satirists.

    Anthony says: "Excellent Word Play"
    "truely a great novel"
    Overall

    I love this book. It is well thought out, exceptionally well written, original, witty and cleaver. It's so good that I actually bought a copy for my Mom. Definitely worth your time, especially if you are overly stressed out and need a good laugh.

    It is a time of tranquility for the New Republic. But the peace is short-lived. Luke must journey to his mother's homeworld in a desperate and dangerous quest to find her people. An adventurous Lando must seize a mysterious spacecraft that has weapons of enormous destructive power. And Leia, a living symbol of the New Republic's triumph, must face down a ruthless leader of the Duskhan League, an arrogant Yevetha who seems bent on a genocidal war.

    James says: "Most unfulfilling Star Wars series I've read."
    "The Force is elsewhere"
    Overall

    This book does an effective job at establishing the setting for the Story, but you could just as easily skip to book three and not miss a thing.

    The Ankh-Morpork Post Office is running like...well, not at all like a government office. The mail is delivered promptly. Postmaster General Moist von Lipwig, former arch-swindler and confidence man, has exceeded all expectations - including his own. So it's somewhat disconcerting when Lord Vetinari summons Moist to the palace and asks, "Tell me, Mr. Lipwig, would you like to make some real money?"

    Jason says: "Another gem."
    "Excellent"

    I would like to tell you everything that’s good about this book, but I wouldn’t want to deprive you the joy of absorbing this fine audio book for your self. Terry Pratchett's humor comes alive in this latest disk-world story. Enjoy, in know I did.

    Overall

    To say that this Star Trek story was merely good would be an understatement. It is one of the best stories to be written by Jeri Taylor. This Novel provides a look into the soul of Captain Janeway. I for one found this book engaging and poignant. A good audio book if I ever heard one.

    The sensual men and women in this sizzling collection are all in search of the ultimate sexual high. No plain old vanilla sex here; driven by insatiable desires, they push their bodies and souls to the limits, exploring the outer limits of eroticism. From arcane sexual rituals to the heights of Hollywood decadence, Deep Inside breaks every taboo as it takes you inside the throbbing flesh and twisted urges of the kinky, the depraved, and the supernatural.

    Jessica says: "HOT, SEXY, SHOCKING"
    "avarage"
    Overall

    This is a good collection of short erotic stories. The voice actors used for this novel are wounderful. My only constructive critisim is that most of these authors take forever advancing the plot of their story. Otherwise this book is well worth your time and money.

  • Pontoon: A Novel of Lake Wobegon

    Garrison Keillor's latest book is about the wedding of a girl named Dede Ingebretson, who comes home from California with a guy named Brent. Dede has made a fortune in veterinary aromatherapy; Brent bears a strong resemblance to a man wanted for extortion who's pictured on a poster in the town's post office. Then there's the memorial service for Dede's aunt Evelyn, who led a footloose and adventurous life after the death of her husband 17 years previously.

    Michele says: "Brillliant but not lighthearted"
    "not his usual best"
    Overall

    I am a fan of most of Garrison Keillor works; but not "Pontoon". It is almost as if Mr. Keillor forgot how to write or what he was writing about. But don't let this this piece of literature subtract from his exemplary career as a writer. Also, if you enjoy this genre of comedic writings, then I would suggest researching any on of his peer especially Mathew James Borkowski and his collected works from “Ho-Hun Valley”.

    Cassandra Devine, a young Washington spin doctor and blogger, suggests that Baby Boomers be given government incentives to kill themselves by age 75. This proposal catches on with citizens outraged about Social Security debt and a senator seeking the youth vote for his presidential bid. With the help of Washington's greatest PR strategist, Cassandra and the senator try to ride the issue of euthanasia to the White House.

    Lloyd says: "Buckley's a winner"
    "A for effort"
    Overall

    This is not Christopher Buckley's best effort, but you might like it. In my opinion it rambles on and on with out advancing the plot at all.
