    Story

    The body of an elderly woman is found dismembered in a Virginia landfill. Scarpetta initially believes the clues mirror that of a serial killer she's tracked before. But upon further investigation, she discovers puzzling pox-like erruptions on the woman's body that, perhaps, point in another direction.

    Brenda says: "Stilted Narration"

    Overall

    A good Kay Scarpetta story. It had enough depth of character and plot twists to keep my rapt interest. And, for series readers, relationships change and natural aging happens with the familiar characters.

    Story
    (2005)

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    "Angels and Demons"
    Overall

    I listened to this after The Davinci Code and, while I enjoyed the same nonstop pace and interwoven history lessons, I found this and The Davinci Code a little too much like television: flashing from scene to scene without much literary pause to reflect in depth on the characters' history, motivations, and morality code.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"

    Overall

    This story goes nonstop. I was pleasently surprised with the art and cultural history woven into this modern tale. It definitely keeps yoou on the edge og your seat.

    Digory and Polly meet and become friends one cold, wet summer in London. Their lives burst into adventure when Digory's Uncle Andrew, who thinks he is a magician, sends them hurtling to...somewhere else. They find their way to Narnia, newborn from the Lion's song, and encounter the evil sorceress Jadis, before they finally return home.

    Jason says: "An incredible children's series"

    Overall

    I read this series to my children years ago and loved it. Now, that a "major motion picture" has been made I was delighted to hear this first in the series again:C.S. Lewis really knew how to hook a listener. This is great story telling. I'll be interested to see how the movie measures up in my students' eyes.
