    Best selling author John Grisham (A Time to Kill, The Brethren) returns with a new tale for modern times, offering a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become a part of our holiday tradition.

    Overall

    What do you do when the last bird leaves the nest? Why plan a romantic vacation to a tropical destination of course. That was the plan and the trials and road blocks along the way are realistic if somewhat exaggerated. This was a great listen, will make you smile one minute, shake your head in agreement the next, laugh out loud and wipe a tear from your eye in the end.

    Jahna and Lovern's clan lay in the Romans' path of destruction. The death of their people is a certainty, unless a bargain is made with the Gods, even if it means a human sacrifice. Will the trade the Druid Lovern, and his visionary wife, Jahna make with the Gods, save their family?

    Overall

    While the story itself was pretty good, it would have been much more enjoyable if there hadn't been musical intermissions between each chapter and if someone with a more expressive voice had done the actual reading. The music got so annoying that as soon as a chapter ended and the darn music or song started, I would skip the music and go right into the next chapter. I would have never gotten through the book any other way.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Overall

    Jeff Wood does an excellent job bring the character of "Pi" to life in this wonderful fiction. It is so well written that at times I forgot it was fiction and had actually happened. It does start out a little slow, but that is necessary to lay the foundation upon which the story develops. I really enjoyed this book and recommended it to everyone I know.

  • A Walk in the Woods

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "A Great Read"
    Overall

    I never knew there was so much involved in hiking. I was enchanted, learned a lot about the Appalachian trail that I never knew and felt like old friends with the characters in the book. The narrator is great! A real pleasure to listen to. This book will have you laughing out loud! You won't be disappointed.

  • Dreamcatcher

    Story
    (787)

    A dark and sweeping adventure, Dreamcatcher is set in the haunted city of Derry - the site of Stephen King's It and Insomnia. In it, four young boys stand together and do a brave, good thing, an act that changes them in ways that they hardly understand. A quarter-century later, as grown men who have gone their separate ways, these friends come together once a year to hunt in the woods of Maine.

    DeClawed says: "Stick with It: A Great Ride"
    "A MUST LISTEN"
    Overall

    From the first chapter you will find yourself glued to your earsets. This is classic King and worth every minute of your time. One truly becomes INVOLVED in the story, identifying with each character as if you knew them yourself and chances are, you know someone who is like them.

    Nineteen hours of listening pleasure, there is no way Hollywood can do justice to this book. And I'm glad I listened to the book first as I probably would have passed it by had I made the mistake of going to see the movie first. Now, I can happily wait until the movie is put out on video tape before viewing it. Then I'll only be out a few bucks to rent it just to see what they did and what they left out. :)
