    The scattered Tribulation Force is drawn inexorably toward the Middle East, as are all the armies of the world, when human history culminates in the battle of the ages. During the last year of the Great Tribulation, safe houses are no longer safe, and the cast of characters dramatically changes. By the time of the war of the great day of God the Almighty, the globe has become a powder keg of danger.

    "The Truth"
    Overall

    Armageddon, as well as all the books in the Left Behind Series, are about love, tolerance, and the belief that Jesus Christ died for our sins. It's a simple concept and you don't have to agree with it to enjoy the books. The characters are complex, the technology is advanced and the storyline keeps your attention. There's nothing racist in these books, when you consider the diversity of the core group of people, you see just the opposite. These books show that everyone brings something to the table, everyone has something to offer, and sometimes you just have to stand up for what you believe in, even if that means risking your life.

    Fletcher Moon has never been like other kids. For one thing, he has had to suffer the humiliating nickname "Half Moon" because of his short stature. But the real reason Fletcher is different is that ever since he was a baby, he's had a nose for sniffing out mysteries. And let's just say, it's not a skill that has been appreciated by many people, including his own family.

    "Delightful"
    Overall

    The story was delightful and excellently written from the perspective of a 12 year old. Sean Patrick Reilly was EXCEPTIONAL. I'd listen to him read the dictionary. This isn't Artemis Fowl and shouldn't be compared to him. It's the reality-based adventures of a youth with descriptive, beautiful passages about the people and places around him as well as the events that unfold.

  • Everyone Worth Knowing: A Novel

    On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At 26, she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her 80-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or dating outside her office walls, but she's paying her dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never been, she has no idea what to do next.

    Susan says: "Agonizing"
    "Ok story ... AWESOME narration."
    Overall

    It's Eliza Dushku's reading that makes this book. In another's voice the story and its heroine might have come off naive and implausible. But Eliza's reading is dead-on, making the listener feel like a friend is confiding in them. It's a fun book perfect for listening with a hot tea on a cold winter's day.

    Buckle your seat belts. New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

    Janet Evanovich does it again. Great new lead character and a great deal of fun. It's not rocket science but it's a great diversion for when you're stuck in traffic.CJ is an awesome reader too.

    James Patterson's explosive debut in the young adult market is guaranteed to create legions of new fans for this beloved, multimillion-selling author.

    Daniel Freed says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Great story ... unfinished book"
    Overall

    I loved these characters in Patterson's two "grown up" books. Max is awesome. The story is even better, but just as it got going, it was over. Really seemed like half a book to me. Didn't JK Rowling teach other authors that kids books don't have to be short?

    You'll definitely enjoy the book, you'll just hate when it's over.

    They were dead just a moment ago - weren't they? The sky cracks open, the air buzzes, and the crowds around you roar. Two assassinated prophets, Eli and Moishe, receive a heavenly summons in a bombastic aural display that overwhelms the senses.

    A Jill of All Trades says: "Outstanding!!"
    "Outstanding!!"
    Overall

    If you've read the books, I highly recommend listening to the "experience" audio rather than the unabridge. Absolutely outstanding, moving and heart changing.

    Kudo's to the actors!!

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum, her mentor Ranger, and a host of other - ahem - interesting characters set out to find a missing 7-year-old girl. The search becomes a race among Stephanie's posse, the True Blue Bonds Agency, and the crew of one very scary man named Eddie Abruzzi. Did we mention there's also a killer rabbit on the loose? The world of Stephanie Plum has never been wilder!

    jamie says: "Hard Eight"
    "Between good & great; not excellent"
    Overall

    The reader is better, but still not the correct voice of Stephanie. Lorelei's attempts at male voices are very poor. Yet, the story itself is laugh-out-loud funny. Stephanie Plum rocks!
