    Lisbeth Salander is a wanted woman. Two Millennium journalists are murdered and Salander's fingerprints are on the weapon. Her history of unpredictable behaviour makes her the official suspect, but no-one can find her. Salander may be an expert at staying out of sight, but she also has ways of tracking down her most elusive enemies.

    Joe says: "Excellent"

    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of One Shot to be better than the print version?

    I would think so, I love Dick Hill as a narrator, I so love listening to the books he narrates.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Shot?

    Just all of it..... its a good book as usual from Lee Child


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes.... all brilliant


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    just that feeling of an adrenalin rush listening to it, and a really satisfied "glad to have chosen it to listen to"


    Any additional comments?

    Don't think many people could possiblty be disappointed with this audio/novel

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    love the audio...... fantastic presentation


    What did you like best about this story?

    to be honest it took me a while to get into this audio book, I am so glad I persisted. It's only the odd one or two that won't enjoy this, don't let the negative reviews sway you (few that they are)


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The character voices are great, especially that of Shep.... I kinda like Shep, just accept him for who he is.


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

    If I could stay awake all night and not have to work during the day.... sure


    Any additional comments?

    First time I have heard this narrator.... he is very good

    When the spirit of Lara's great-aunt Sadie - a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance - mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than 75 years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions.

    When I started listening I thought it was going to be a little far fetched even though it is meant to be humorous and I didn't think it would hold my interst. But a little way in I found I really enjoyed it and would have been happy if it continued on and just didn't end. It was fun in parts, and touching in others.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    The Dollmaker was the name of the serial killer who had stalked Los Angeles ruthlessly, leaving grisly calling cards on the faces of his victims. Now, with a single faultless shot, Harry Bosch thinks he has ended the city's nightmare.

    The first few pages (only a few mind you) had me thinking "ho hum" could be boring. A little further in to the book "boy was I wrong" it's fantastic! Don't you had when a good book comes to an end!

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Molly says: "Keeps you guessing all the way through!"

    On a warm summer night in one of Boston’s working-class neighborhoods, an unthinkable crime has been committed: Four members of a family have been brutally murdered. The father—and possible suspect—now lies clinging to life in the ICU. Murder-suicide? Or something worse? Veteran police detective D. D. Warren is certain of only one thing: There’s more to this case than meets the eye.

    Erin says: "Live To Tell - 3.5 stars"
    "so worthwhile"

    I agree with one reviewer that it is hard to read about sad circumstances which involve children, but this book is so worth listening to, and WOW the readers are just exceptional. "thumbs up for Lisa Gardner"

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    amyjh98 says: "Not very exciting"
    "just a story...."
    Overall

    I cannot believe what some people are saying about this book. Some people think it is really disappointing, its just a story, but in my opinion I haven't wasted my time by listening to it, I have quite enjoyed it. Then people comment on the narrator, saying its terrible, I don't understand this, infact I can't find fault, it certainly doesn't get on my nerves. Dont listen so much to "bad reviews" just enjoy listening.

    When art dealer Catherine Sergeant meets John Brigham, her view of the world has been shattered. Left by her husband Robert without explanation, she expects little from life. Apparently reclusive, John lives alone in a beautiful Arts and Crafts house on the edge of Dorset woodland, and has contacted Catherine's firm so that he may sell unwanted items. But when the two discover a mutual love of the haunting Victorian faerie artist Richard Dadd, their friendship rapidly deepens.

    Julie says: "I give it 2 you may not think the same"
    "I give it 2 you may not think the same"
    Overall

    This book has many sad events. It is very sombre indeed.

    The characters stories seemed to me to be individual and not linked to another, perhaps this is intentional I dont know. I dont think the book is long enough to explore each character. It didnt build to a "I am dying to find out what is going to happen"

    It has left me thinking "have I missed something" or perhaps I was in the mood for a giggle and this book is about people having real life problems to face.

    The artist they focus on is quite real, I find his pictures very interesting.... his paintings show you his "inside suffering".

    This book has left me with an emotional feeling, not quite sure how to put it in words. I would be very interested to see other comments.
