    Max Jones, a practical, hard-working young man, found his escape in his beloved astronomy books. When reality comes crashing in and his troubled home life forces him out on the road, Max finds himself adrift in a downtrodden land - until an unexpected, ultimate adventure carries him away as a stowaway aboard an intergalactic spaceship.

    Jeanene says: "A typical Heinlein Juvenile"
    "Great Sadness for Max Jones"
    Overall

    Sadly, this title would not work on my Zen. So I had to deepsix it. It's one of my favorite books from childhood, the triumph of using ones abilities to overcome circumstances of birth to achieve ones highest goals. One of my favorite Heinlein's for Young Adult -- I read it when I was ten!

    New York Times best-selling author Nevada Barr continues her award-winning Anna Pigeon series with this riveting mystery that features the puzzling plot twists, deft characterizations, and sparkling dialogue that have become Barr's trademarks, and which her ever-growing fan base can't get enough of.

    Overall

    I have been an avid fan of Nevada Barr since I picked up the first Anna Pigeon book. I enjoyed listening as I sewed or worked around the house, always posting on the wall a map of the area of the book's setting so I could follow along with Anna's travels. However, as the series progressed, there seemed to be an inordinate increase in the amount of gratuitous vulgarity and violence. For me, it culminated with Hard Truth. Sitting on a plane, I finally got so disgusted I tore off my headphones and snarled out loud (startling the ConAgra executive next to me), "Just shoot the [expletive deleted] and get it over with!" and never did finish listening to the book. The narration was, as always, superb, Barr's writing style, as always, faultless with exception of that seemingly needless dragging out of the story toward the end. It was just a shame that the aforementioned flaws of violence and vulgarity have caused me to drop Barr as one of my favorite authors. If these matters are not of concern to the reader, then Hard Truth is as sterling a read(or listen, as the case may be) as the previous Anna Pigeon books.

  • The Perfect Paragon: An Agatha Raisin Mystery

    After being nearly killed by both a hired hit man and her former secretary, Agatha Raisin could use some low-key cases. So when Robert Smedley walks through the door, determined to prove that his wife is cheating, Raisin Investigations immediately offers to help. Trouble is, Agatha hates divorce cases, especially when the client is as pompous as Smedley, but she has a business to run and she's not about to turn away a paying customer.

    Overall

    M.C. is at her best! Poor Agatha has a crackerjack detective team -- and an extreme communication problem! Alternately sad to hear how the UK has gone downhill, and funny when Agatha and her team stumble about doing all the right things in the wrong way! Great listen.
