    Story
    (139)

    When Dave Robicheaux, learns that an old friend, Father Jimmie Dolan has been the victim of a particularly brutal assault, he returns to New Orleans to investigate, if only unofficially.

    Joseph says: "Another winner."
    "Narrator doesn't have a clue how a Cajun sounds."
    Overall

    To start with, I am from New Orleans and I know what a Cajun sounds like. This narrator no more sounds like a Cajun than Donald Duck. His tone is dull and slow, very boring. Maybe the story is good but I can't continue to listen to the narrator. In one of the other reviews someone from PA states that the narrator has a great grasp for the Cajun dialect. This person is very wrong. I invite anyone to come to New Orleans and go into Cajun country and listen.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    Overall

    This book started out as an interesting listen. It soon went down hill. I listened to the entire book hoping that it would get better. You don't always have to have a happy ending for a good story line but this ending was terrible. If I could give it a no star rating I would. Let it stand as a BUST. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME.

    Story

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Troy says: "Chapter and part breaks are incorrect"
    "Just Waiting !!!!!!!!!"
    Overall

    I'm waiting for the next book in order to see if a good guy wins. So far, heros finish last, they die. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat, while frustrating you because only the bad guys win. I'm tired of being frustrated but I will listen to the next book.
