    (278)

    Part-time environmentalist and philanthropist Ben and his ex-mercenary buddy Chon run an independent Laguna Beach–based marijuana operation, reaping significant profits from an established clientele. But they may have come up against something that they can't handle---the Mexican Baja Cartel wants in, and saying no is unacceptable. When they refuse to back down, the cartel kidnaps Ophelia, the boys' playmate and confidante.

    What disappointed you about Savages?

    This author likes to pull random words from a dictionary and add them to sentences. Some chapters said absolutely nothing.

    I stopped when I heard a chapter of nothing but stores named in alphabetical order.

    The reader sounds like he doesn't want to read this book to the listeners and after hearing 60 chapters and nothing good has happened, I can't say I blame him.

    This is only possibly the 3rd or 4th book I've ever stopped listening to midway through and don't plan on picking it up again. I'll watch the movie and be done with it.


    What could Don Winslow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    His sex scenes are laughibly childish. He probably wrote them when he was 13. They added nothing to the book.

  • Blue Monday: Frieda Klein, Book 1

    Story

    Frieda Klein is a solitary, incisive psychotherapist who spends her sleepless nights walking along the ancient rivers that have been forced underground in modern London. She believes that the world is a messy, uncontrollable place. The abduction of five-year-old Matthew Farraday provokes a national outcry and a desperate police hunt. And when his face is splashed over the newspapers, Frieda cannot ignore the coincidence: one of her patients has been having dreams in which he has a hunger for just such a child.

    William says: "Terrific!"
    "Interesting Read. The beginning of a new series."

    Would you try another book from Nicci French and/or Beth Chalmers?

    I liked it enough to read another book by the author.


    Would you recommend Blue Monday to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. It was interesting enough and there was enough storyline to interest me.
