  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"
    "History should be taught like this"

    What made the experience of listening to Winter of the World the most enjoyable?

    I think the characters of this series are so believable. I felt like shouting at them at pivitol points to get out of a certain location, like the Pearl Harbor segment or the Russians coming into Berlin.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter of the World?

    The most shocking is the part where the German soldier arrested a gay restaurant owner and his lover and what happened at the prison.


    If you could rename Winter of the World, what would you call it?

    I think Winter of the World is aptly named.


    Any additional comments?

    This book made me want to get ahold of a high school history book and follow along with the timeline.
    I think of my parents, who were lucky to be in the stateside military. But what the world must of seemed like to them. Wish they were here to discuss this book with.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    If you could sum up Atlas Shrugged in three words, what would they be?

    I was blind.....


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that this book was published in 1957 but it applies to today even more than in 1957. It is a very long book and I will read it again, and again. Because that its such a valuable story. If you think capitalism is evil, you must read. If you feel envy for the rich, if you feel that doctors should work because they love helping people, if you feel that we should be more equal...............READ this book.

    Jack and Melissa McGuane have spent years trying to have a baby. Finally their dream has come true with the adoption of their daughter, Angelina. But nine months after bringing her home, they receive a devastating phone call from the adoption agency: Angelina's birth father, a teenager, never signed away his parental rights, and he wants her back.

    Would you try another book from C. J. Box and/or John Bedford Lloyd?

    I will only read a Joe Pickett book, apparently C.J. Box can only create a sympathetic/lovable character in the Joe Pickett character.


    Any additional comments?

    I would rather go to the dentist than to listen to this book again.

    Best-selling author C. J. Box—an Anthony and Macavity Award winner—earned starred reviews from both Publishers Weekly and Booklist for this exceptional mystery. Taking advantage of a legal loophole, a lawyer kills four people in Yellowstone National Park and walks away a free man. As the public outcry intensifies, the governor hires former game warden Joe Pickett to conduct a private investigation.

    David says: "A very fun read!"
    "Joe goes to Yellowstone"

    Would you listen to Free Fire again? Why?

    How does C.J. Box manage to write a book about gruesome murders and still make you want to visit Yellowstone all in one chapter? Someday, I hope to visit Yellowstone and would definately re-listen to this book again so I could take notes on what places to visit.
    Joe feels so much like a living person to me that I almost hesitate to finish the series. It will feel like an old friend has gone away.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like that Joe and Marybeth are able to put the past behind them. Joe is so honorable, I hate to see him being tempted by a woman. But his is also very human.......


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe some day Joe can meet up with Nevada Barr's Forest Park Ranger??? Just a thought.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Recommend this to all my friends!"

    Where does 11-22-63 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best of 2011!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    This book brings you back to 1958-63 in vivid detail. It feels like you are sitting on the edge of your seat for the entire book.


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

    Craig did an amazing job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    This would have to be a mini series because 2 hours would not be enough to do it justice. Tag line : The past might change you more than you could change it.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this book and call in sick for the next two days!
