    This book caught my interest right from the start. Good story line, a little predictable, but very enjoyable. The narrator did a supurb job with this one.

    In this important new biography, Ronald C. White, Jr. offers a fresh and fascinating definition of Lincoln as a man of integrity - what today's commentators are calling "authenticity" - whose internal moral compass is the key to understanding his life. Through meticulous research, utilizing recently discovered Lincoln letters, legal papers, and photographs, White depicts Lincoln as a person of intellectual curiosity, comfortable with ambiguity, and capable of changing his mind.

    Julieann says: "Insight into Lincoln"

    I usually really like biographies, but this one fell short. It spent way too much time describing every little detail of the civil war. I did manage to get through it, but most of the book was pretty boring.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    Amazon Customer says: "Typical Grisham, entertaining"

    Story

    I was disappointed because I usually really like Grisham. The story is predictable. I kept waiting for a twist in plot, or something interesting to happen, but it never did. This book was a complete waste of a credit, as well as a waste of time.

    Tom and Nedith have been married for 30 years, but their marriage is one of convenience and finances. Their 22-year-old son, Peter, has recently split from his wife after less than a year. Three more couples are experiencing the throes of middle-class disaffection. Times are changing, the generation gap is widening, and the stage is set for a stormy weekend for these five couples.

    Linda says: "the word"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    This is the first book by my favorite narrator that I did not care for. The characters were boring, and and the book was difficult to finish bacause I simply didn't care about any of them. I thought this was a total waste of a credit!

  • Stolen Innocence: My Story of Growing Up in a Polygamous Sect, Becoming a Teenage Bride, and Breaking Free of Warren Jeffs

    In September 2007, Elissa Wall, the star witness against polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs, gave captivating testimony of how Jeffs forced her to marry her first cousin at age 14. This harrowing account proved to be the most compelling evidence against Jeffs, showing the harsh realities of this closed community and the lengths to which Jeffs went in order to control the sect's women. Now, in this courageous memoir, Wall tells the incredible story of how she emerged from the confines of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints and helped bring one of America's most notorious criminals to justice.

    Christine says: "Chris from Cedar City, UT USA"
    "Incredible!"
    Overall

    This book is well written. It gives an amazing insight into the mindset of the followers of Warren Jeffs. My heart goes out to these young girls who are torn between their loyalties to their families and their right to make their own choices in life. After listening to this book, I am very relieved that Warren Jeffs is finally behind bars. Hurray for Elissa Wall and her incredible courage to stand up for justice.

    On a morning in 1924, a young woman rises from the floor of her family's small home in Belorussia to find her parents and her husband slaughtered beside her and her infant daughter, Sophie, missing. When her aunt tells her the baby is dead, Lillian emigrates to America. She is working as a seamstress at the Yiddish Theater and enjoying cafe society when a cousin arrives and insists that her daughter is still alive, in Siberia.

    I really tried to like this book. I have enjoyed every book I have heard by this narrator. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, but it never did. For me, this was a total waste of time.

    Some mistakes can change your life forever. For Matt Hunter, that mistake came in one terrible moment when his attempt to help a friend and stop a fight resulted in an accidental death. Matt was convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison. Time that his peers spent in college, Matt endured behind bars.

    Amber says: "Exciting!"

    Although this book starts out slow, it quickly gets very exciting. Harlan Coben books are full of unexpected twists, and this book is no exception. It keeps you guessing to the very end.

    On his way to work one morning, Bill Chalmers suddenly discovers that he cannot remember where he is going, what he is meant to be doing or, indeed, who he is. He remembers only one thing, "The Maximum Information in the Minimum Time", his company's motto. But when his memory returns, it is accompanied by a numbness that gradually affects his entire body.

    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This book barely kept me interested long enough to finish. The story line was very good, but there are way too many loose ends. The story started out interesting, but then nothing else ever happens. It just ended without explanations for anything going on in the story. I see this book as pretty much a complete waste of time.

    With her shopping excesses in check - for now, at least - and her new career as a TV financial adviser blooming, Becky's biggest problem is getting her business-minded boyfriend Luke to take a romantic getaway. But "getaway" takes on a whole new meaning when Luke says he needs to move to New York for business - and he asks Becky to come with him! International best - selling author Sophie Kinsella's sequel to the wildly popular Confessions of a Shopaholic is non-stop fun.

    I really enjoyed this book. This book is witty and funny right from the start. It is hard to put down just waiting to see what will happen next. The reader, Emily Gray really brings the characters to life. I can't wait to read the other two books in the series.
