    With millions of copies of his New York Times best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency mysteries in print across the globe, Alexander McCall Smith is one of the most popular novelists and humorists in the world. Starring the brilliant but bumbling Professor Doctor Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs is a wonderfully entertaining showcase for Smith's award-winning wit.

    Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

    Rick Just says: "Dangerous Religion"
    "Evryone should read this book!"

    Would you listen to The God Delusion again? Why?

    Yes as there is so much detail and facts to remember!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The text helped one to detoxify from being brainwashed by religion in our society.


    Have you listened to any of Richard Dawkins and Lalla Ward ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet


    If you could give The God Delusion a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Get detoxed from religion!

    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    Sparkly says: "Engaging, entertaining, and heartbreaking."
    "Good but poor ending"

    Would you listen to The Beautiful Mystery again? Why?

    Not really! I thought the ending was weak.


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

    Not what I expected... Tended to fade out.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Added more mystery to the last third and ended with a twist.


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    The story was interesting and the setting fascinating. Characters were good but one was really unnecessary.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Brilliant"

    If you could sum up The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest in three words, what would they be?

    An amazing story that kept you hanging on to your seat.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes most definately! I was sad when it ended!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the court scene when a certain character was defeated.


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

    Yes the book got me so engaged I could not stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope they re make all three of the Larson books into films.
