    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Patricia says: "Kept My Interest"
    "Another Great Jack Reacher adventure"
    Overall

    If you have listened or read to Lee Child's books, you wait impatiently for the next book to come out.

    They are unpredictible, captivating and exciting. This one, "Bad Luck and Trouble" ranks right up there with his earlier book "Killing Floor".

    I think you will like this one.

    For generations, Arienh’s people have feared the Viking raids. She knows all too well the terrible toll the Northmen have taken on the Celts, having lost most of her own family to their swords. So one stormy night when she encounters and wounds a Viking warrior, she has every right to want him dead. And yet she hesitates…. Ronan knows Arienh doesn’t recognize him. He was just a boy when his kinsmen raided her village and Ronan risked his own life to protect her. Now he has returned to claim the beautiful girl who captured his heart years before. But wooing a Celtic woman is no easy task.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Loki's Daughters?

    The reader is good, but that's about all. The story is predictable from the start. The childish, hyped-up emotions wear thin. There is no subtlety in the story. The premises are weak and the conflict manufactured.
    I have read and listened to many books, and this one ranks right down near the bottom.


    What was most disappointing about Delle Jacobs’s story?

    The story line is weak and boring. I found that I could skip two chapters and never miss a beat. I would listen for a while and skip a couple of chapters. That helped. This is a book that could have been told in two hours.


    What about Sarah Coomes’s performance did you like?

    I liked her emotion and ability to make the story better.


    What character would you cut from Loki's Daughters?

    You wouldn't like my answer.

  • Outliers: The Story of Success

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    Bill O'Reilly is the very embodiment of the idea of a Culture Warrior, and in this book he lives up to the title brilliantly, with all the brashness and forthrightness at his command. He sees that America is in the midst of a fierce culture war between those who embrace traditional values and those who want to change America into a "secular-progressive" country.

    Earleen says: "conservative centrist"
    "Important book"
    Overall

    This is an important book. It describes, in great detail, the recent, various changes in the political climate.
    Many people who are operating in a fog would do well to become more sensitive to the forces of the secular progressives and the traditional warriors. This war is going on and it is amazing that the vast majority of the american citizens are totally unaware of its existence.
