    Every married couple knows you don't go to bed angry. The corollary, Cork O'Connor realizes, is that you also don't say goodbye when you're mad. When the charter plane Jo O'Connor is on crashes over the mountains in Wyoming in an early winter storm, Cork deeply regrets the heated argument he had with his wife just before she left. An intense search is launched, but bad weather and the steep terrain hinder the efforts and soon the search is abandoned.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was my first Cork O'Connor mystery so I don't know how it is compared to the others, but to anyone who loves a good mystery, this is a good book to check out. It wasn't at all predicable which is of major importance, at least to me, so it succeeded at making me want to finish so I would know how it all ended. Still not the best book I've ever read but it was really well written and worth checking out for the good deal I got on it. The narration was great! Since the book is revolved so much around Indians, Schirner's accent really added to the whole story. It didn't feel so much like someone just reading you a book but more like you were actually listening in on real conversations.

    In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No. To be honest, there were many moments.


    Any additional comments?

    There are not many books I would consider reading twice but this one may be one of the few. Why? Because this is not simply just a story you read or listen to. Its full of deep thought and lessons that everyone needs to hear and dwell on. I recommend this to everyone who may be reading this. While I don't want to promote being completely careless and reckless with your life, Chris McCandless left an example behind that should not be ignored.

    This book started off great. I couldn't help but think to myself, "what a great idea and story setup this is. There is a great imagination behind this book and it should be fantastic." But I was wrong and instead it turned into a big disappointment. It had SO MUCH potential to be a great story though, so through boredom and trying to get my money's worth out of this book, I went ahead and finished it hoping it would get better. Instead it just kept getting worse. Don't be fooled by the summary which tells of a "house of horrors" and "worst nightmares." Rather, it was full of just plain silly situations and jokes that were out of place and failed to be funny. This tries to be an adult/teen book but it actually felt like a book that only a 12 year old might enjoy. I would love to see someone take the theme or idea of this book and turn it into the great read that it could have been.
