    I tried this book out as it was promoted through audible. I think I even got a good deal on it. However, I hadn't expected much from the book. It started a little slow but ended up being a good story all in all.

  • The God of the Hive: A Novel of Suspense Featuring Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King enjoys immense popularity and a resounding chorus of critical acclaim for her exquisite mysteries. The God of the Hive continues the thread King began in The Language of Bees, in which Mary Russell and her famous husband, Sherlock Holmes, face trouble with Scotland Yard and the deadliest of adversaries.

    Story

    I really enjoyed The Language of Bees. While the God of the Hive picks up where that former book left off, it does not continue with the same fast paced style you'd expect of Doyle. I found it left me interested but not engrossed.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    Story

    Love the "journal-style" narrative of the book. It also has a good plot line that doesn't focus on the gore and disgust of zombies but progresses in a good manner.

    George Wendt and beer have shared a lot over the years: good times, great stories, useless trivia, and a successful show business career. In Drinking with George, Wendt invites readers to crack open a cold one and pull up a seat at the bar as he celebrates the indelible, intoxicating beverage.

    Joseph says: "Worst Audio Book Ever!!!!!"
    "More drinking with George than a guide to beer"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The title. It is more of an autobiography than a guide to beer.


    Has Drinking with George turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about George Wendt’s performance did you like?

    He is certainly able to best bring out nuances in his meaning as he wrote the text. I always enjoy this aspect when the author also narrates.
