    The catastrophic power of a giant hurricane can raise coastal waves 30 feet high and blow through houses at devastating speeds. For TV meteorologist Perry Stuart, however, such predictions are hypothetical, as he chiefly predicts periods of English drizzle - until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small airplane as a holiday diversion. But a frightening accident teaches Stuart more secrets than wind speeds.

    Barbara says: "Another Excellent "read""
    "good, mindless read"
    Overall

    I always enjoy reading Dick Francis, even if it feels alot like eating potato chips, not very filling.

    John Grisham's first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small town justice gone terribly awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller yet.

    Mark says: "Good Book - Not Typical Grisham"
    "too long"
    Overall

    there are some interesting parts but this book could have been half the length and still told the story

    So Help Me God relates the compelling story of Chief Justice Roy Moore, including his controversial Ten Commandments displays, his refusal to obey an unlawful order of a federal court, and why the critical legal and political question of our time is, 'Can the state acknowledge God?'

    Marjorie says: "After listening to Judge Moore's words"
    "could be a better telling of story"
    Overall

    I think that this book is worth reading. It is not the most interesting reading even though the story it tells is in fact interesting.

  • Islands in the Stream

    First published in 1970, nine years after Hemingway's death, this is the story of an artist and adventurer, a man much like Hemingway himself. Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson, from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini through his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.

    Paul says: "Best presentation of any audiobook ever."
    "good sense of Cuba"
    Overall

    I spend some time in Cuba and this book does a good job of capturing what I have seen. I think Hemingway can be very good or very bad and this falls in the middle.

With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    jerry says: "Outstanding as always"

    the usual solid plot and characters you find with Baldacci

    Is God listening? Can he be trusted? In this book, Yancey tackles the questions caused by a God who doesn't always do what we think he's supposed to do.

    "quality Yancey"
    Overall

    I don't come away from these books with a great deal that I remember but the book is generally interesting and it is an important subject.

  • Christian Manifesto

    In this explosive book, Francis Schaeffer shows why morality and freedom have crumbled in our society. He calls for a massive movement - in government, law, and all of life - to reestablish our Judeo-Christian foundation and turn the tide of moral decadence and loss of freedom. A Christian Manifesto is literally a call for Christians to change the course of history - by returning to biblical Truth and by allowing Christ to be Lord in all of life.

    Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moments", A Grief Observed is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period.

    Sam says: "A Grief Observed (Unabridged)"
    "Lewis was familiar with grief"
    Overall

    Lewis captures what it is like to lose someone that you passionately love. This is not a theoretical book but a description of very personal feelings.

    Amanda Jaffe, star of Margolin's biggest bestseller yet, Wild Justice, returns with a story of how the evidence that we think is the most reliable could be meting out a different type of "justice" than the public suspects.

    Charles says: "Margolin's Worst, Yet"
    "Better characters"
    Overall

    I generally think of Margolin as better on action that character development. Here he brings back an old character which is good for a writer who does not emphasize this aspect as you already feel you know them a little. He then goes on to add some of interesting characters. Still, there are some believability flaws and the action is what keeps you reading.
