    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What did you like best about 14? What did you like least?

    The reader was excellent. The story started very strongly, but there came a point when it went too far. The reader saved it for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Good characters, good start and ending, but becomes far fetched at one point.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Presumed Innocent brings to life our worst nightmare: that of an ordinary citizen facing conviction for the most terrible of crimes. Prosecutor Rusty Sabich is transformed from accuser to accused when he is handed an explosive case - that of the brutal murder of a woman who happens to be his former lover.

    What did you like best about Split Second? What did you like least?

    The beginning sort of hooked me on the story. It started as an interesting premise. Later in the story the plot lost me. I found it at some point to get too far fetched.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The performance was okay, but not up to Brick's high standard.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    depends on the actors. it could make a good movie.

  • The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    What made the experience of listening to The House of Silk the most enjoyable?

    The reader did a very good job on the voices.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was interesting, but confusing at times, convoluted, so pay attention, and if you lose it, go back.


    What about Derek Jacobi’s performance did you like?

    I liked his Watson, and he did a good job on most.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said above, pay attention. At one point I was lost because I went a few days without listening and there are confusing elements, lots of characters. Overall a very good listen.

  • Time for the Stars

    Travel to other planets is now a reality, and with overpopulation stretching the resources of Earth, the necessity of finding habitable worlds is growing ever more urgent. There’s a problem though—because the spaceships are slower than light, any communication between the exploring ships and Earth would take years.

    Tom and Pat are identical twin teenagers. As twins they’ve always been close, so close that it seemed like they could read each other’s minds.

    What made the experience of listening to Time for the Stars the most enjoyable?

    Great plot. Good performance. Some reviewers didn't agree, but I felt it was just right.


    Any additional comments?

    My first experience with Heinlein and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The characters are well developed and I was impressed with the thoughtfulness. This is not just a SciFi book. Of course, if you can't go there (to SciFi) then this is not for you.(I'm 64, read SciFi when younger, and bought this audible book on a whim, just to see what Heinlein was like. It surprised me.)

  • The Book Case: A Short Story Featuring Detective John Corey

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    If you could sum up The Book Case in three words, what would they be?

    Corey Solves Another.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Corey is a great character, which DeMille has used in several books. His dry humor and stoicism are done very well.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick captures the ambiance of the setting and characters very well.


    Any additional comments?

    I like DeMille's books and have read several, so got this story to try out audible.com. I enjoyed it, although it's perhaps not his best work. Still, it is worthwhile for a quick listening experience.
