    Tragedy and mental illness have been dark companions of Rae Newborn for more than 50 years. Her life seems to start rebuilding itself, though, when she moves to a deserted island to restore the house her mysterious great-uncle built in the 1920s. But Rae senses powerful forces stirring on the island. Is the skin-crawling feeling she has of someone watching her only in her mind, or has something disturbingly real taken notice of Rae?

    This book is very very good. It's not my usual suspense novel. It's hardly able to call itself one. However, I loved it. I feel like I'm a better person to have read it, experienced it, and in a sense, lived it. The narration is fantastic. The storyline had me hooked within an hour. Sometimes you read a book and you know that, though it was alright, you'll forget about it after a month or two (those airport fictions). I will remember this book for years to come.

    Powerful entertainment from the crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose. Best selling author Kathy Reichs "keeps the twists coming, and by the novel's climax, she has skillfully interwoven her many subplots and red herrings into a satisfying puddle of sex, sleaze, greed and gore," says Publishers Weekly.

    Don says: "Good story"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I couldn't get into it. The narrator was flat. I had to go back again and again. So NoT worth it. I think if I had read it (instead of listened to it) it would have been better.

    "In wartime," Winston Churchill wrote, "truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies." For Britain's counterintelligence operations, this meant finding the unlikeliest agents imaginable - including a history professor named Alfred Vicary.

    Brian says: "Riveting"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Character development was fantastic. The storyline was realistic and had various levels of depth adding a richness to the book. I'm not usually into wartime books but this was great.

    His existence shattered by the Great War, Bennett Grey is investigated by an American agent who thinks he may be useful for protecting national security. U.S. Bureau of Investigation agent Harris Stuyvesant's first inclination is to let his fists do the talking. But he's well out of his jurisdiction, having traveled across the Atlantic to dig up clues on an Englishman he believes responsible for terrorist acts in the States.

    Regan says: "Great characters, but plot is a bit of a jumble"
    "Good... but kinda dull"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of this author. I've enjoyed so many of her audiobooks but this one lacked tension. It just sorta lagged. There was no excitement, no characters I fell in love with, just sorta bland... I liked it enough for three stars.

    Finicky Hercule Poirot has retired to the countryside. Dr. Sheppard, observing his new neighbor, is sure that he must be a former hairdresser. But the brutal murder of wealthy Roger Ackroyd reveals the truth: the peculiar little man is actually a detective par excellence. Poirot shrewdly sorts out the clues and shocks everyone with the facts about the killer, in this stunning landmark of the mystery genre.

    Jon says: "Who killed Roger Ackroyd?"
    "Different and fun..."
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book a ton. Narration was good, storyline was good... but I really hated the ending. You might like it. I was really disappointed.

    On the outside, Amanda Jaffe has healed from the traumatic events that concluded the sensational New York Times best seller Wild Justice, but inside, she's struggling to regain her self-assurance. When she is forced to represent a pimp accused of murder (a case no other lawyer will touch), her client threatens her, strirring up the trauma to such an extent that she must finally seek the help of a psychiatrist.

    I liked it but it's forgetible... ya know, airplane paperback type of time-passing-but-not-really-deeply-engaging kinda book.

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Peter says: "Heinlein's Masterpiece"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    I really liked this book. I love books that get philosophical without getting in the way of the storyline. I learned things, I thought about things, and I listened to a great book.

    Overall

    I'm not the type that wants all the good guys to be saints and all the bad guys to be demons. I'm the type that likes the protagonist to have a really humanistic personality where the good does out way the bad but he/she is not perfect. This book is one of those predictible cheeseball books where good always prevails and it's perfectly obvious that it's going to no matter how the odds may be against the good guys. Narration was good. It was brutal to get through though.

    Story

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Connie says: "One of the best Koontz Books!"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    Very suspenseful. I was listening to it alone in my apartment and I could not turn out the light. I loved it.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Sittingduck says: "Detailed Koontz"
    "children's book"
    Overall

    This would make a great book for an adolescent, preteen maybe. I bought it for a long drive and I kept waiting for it to get good... never did. No gripping suspense, overly dramatic and stereotypical characters. However, if I was 13, I think I would have really enjoyed it.
