    It's Easter in Reading, a bad time for eggs, and no one can remember the last sunny day. Ovoid D-class nursery celebrity Humpty Stuyvesant Van Dumpty III, minor baronet, ex-convict, and former millionaire philanthropist, is found shattered to death beneath a wall in a shabby area of town. All the evidence points to his ex-wife, who has conveniently shot herself.

    I can listen to this story over and over. A who-dun-it with twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end.

    Each year, the magicians of Imardin gather to purge the city streets of vagrants. They know that no ordinary low-life can oppose them. But their protective shield is not as impenetrable as they think. Somea, angry and outraged by the treatment of her family and friends, throws a stone at the shield, putting all her rage behind it. She is amazed when it sails unrestricted through the barrier and knocks a magician unconscious.

    Scott Jacobs says: "Great reader, wonderful book."
    "The Magician's Guild"
    Overall

    After listening to The Magician's Guild, I had to buy the last two books of the trilogy to find out what happens. I only wish they were available in audio form as well. This is a great trilogy.

    The United States has survived clueless presidential administrations before. But no matter how enormous the crisis, the Great Depression, Vietnam, Watergate, or Monica Lewinsky's thong, America always comes out looking like, well, America.

    Donald says: "F.U.B.A.R. - That's right"

    Overall

    Sam Sedar does a great job of reading his book. The old American dream -- work hard, get rich. The new American dream -- being rich. Any questions?

    Nathaniel is eleven-years-old and a magician's apprentice, learning the traditional art of magic. All is well until he has a life-changing encounter with Simon Lovelace, a magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. When Lovelace brutally humiliates Nathaniel in public, Nathaniel decides to speed up his education, teaching himself spells far beyond his years. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all and summons Bartimaeus, a five-thousand-year-old djinni, to assist him.

    China's breakneck industrialization is placing it on a collision course with the entire world. Tomorrow's China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, livable wages, and leading-edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel, even food, water, and air.

    Joe says: "Good Narration, Book Flawed"
    "The Coming China Wars"
    Overall

    Wow! After listening to this book, the label "made in China" takes on a whole different meaning. Very informative. The Chinese government finances our debt so we can buy more cheap goods from China. This is a vicious cycle that can not go on for ever. Free trade is not the same as fair trade. The question is, will the US be the loser or will China self implode first?

    The Assassins' Gate, so dubbed by American soldiers, is the entrance to the American zone in the city of Baghdad. In 2003, the United States blazed into Iraq to depose dictator Saddam Hussein. But after three years and unknown thousands killed, that country faces an escalating civil war and an uncertain fate. How did it get to this point?

    D. Flagg says: "Highly Recommended"
    "Assassin's Gate"
    Overall

    The book gives great insight to the Iraq conflict and should be read (or listened to) by all Americans. The book has stories about average Iraqis, and how their attitudes towards the American occupation changes overtime. Packer points out that as mistakes where made, trust on both sides was lost. The problems in Iraqi have been brewing for decades to centuries and will not be easily resolved.
