    This powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together they will encounter the hell of hazing and the rabid, raunchy and dangerously secretive atmosphere of an arrogant and proud military institute. They will experience the violence. The passion. The rage. The friendship. The loyalty. The betrayal. Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal transition to manhood... and one will not survive.

    Overall

    Wonderful author, wonderful narration. I loved the book, loved the character development, however, it did make me sad because the book rang so true one couldn't help but feel somewhat sad especially if you have a son! Pat Conroy is outstanding and I am sure this book will remain in your mind forever!

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    Story

    I found this book very tedious and pretty much all it made me do was dislike lawyers and make me happy I have a will. The end was quite predictable and I only finished it just in case I was wrong about the ending. I wasn't. He has many works much more entertaining than this. Some of the same characters in A Time to Kill but do not expect it to be anywhere near the same quality of writing.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    Story

    Stephen King had me since 1976 when I picked up 'Salem's Lot and had to drop my 8 am class because I could not put the book down. I then devoured every Stephen King book I could find with my personal favorite being The Stand. He is just a master story teller! However, once I started Misery I could not finish it as it truly was just too miserable! So I stayed away for years (but did read The Stand again). I then inched my way back with Bag of Bones, Duma Key, 11/22/63 (loved it), Dr. Sleep and Mr. Mercedes. So glad to be back again in his web of good and evil. If you have the same feelings I expressed in this review get the audiobook you will enjoy it!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    I enjoy listening to books, I get much work done with my I-pod. Even though I enjoyed listening to this book I did not like it. When I read I feel like I am hanging out with the characters. There was not one main character in this book I would ever want to be in their company. I could understand the interest in this book but there is nothing positive about reading this. Make a different selection!

    Pat Conroy is without doubt America's favorite storyteller, a writer who portrays the anguished truth of the human heart and the painful secrets of families in richly lyrical prose and unforgettable narratives. Now, in Beach Music, he tells of the dark memories that haunt generations, in a story that spans South Carolina and Rome and reaches back into the unutterable terrors of the Holocaust.

    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    Story

    Love me some Virgil Flowers, but this was just ok. Usually the reader follows Flowers through a personal journey along with his detective work, although that was in here not too much depth and he is such an interesting character. Also I kept looking for the phrase that is usually said once in the book when someone again meets up with ______ Flowers, but it either wasn't there or I missed it and I always enjoyed that calling card. Anyway if you are a Virgil fan you will of course read it. Not sorry I bought it as I said love me some Virgil Flowers. I did like the narration.

    Convalescing in Sandytown, Dalziel befriends Charlotte Heywood who is researching the benefits of alternative therapy. With much in common, the two soon find themselves in league when trouble comes to town. Sandytown's principal landowners have grandiose plans for the resort -- none of which they can agree on. One of them has to go, and when one of them does, in spectacularly gruesome fashion, DCI Peter Pascoe is called in to investigate -- with Dalziel and Charlotte providing unwelcome support.

    Here is one of the greatest English comic novels read by incontrovertible king of English comic audiobook readers, Martin Jarvis. Three men, worried about their health and in search of different experiences, set off 'up the river' in a boat. Jerome's delightful novel, dating from 1900, paints a vivid picture of innocent fun.

    A house demolition provides an unpleasant surprise for Minneapolis - the bodies of two girls, wrapped in plastic. It looks like they've been there a long time. Lucas Davenport knows exactly how long.In 1985, Davenport was a young cop with a reputation for recklessness, and the girls' disappearance was a big deal. His bosses ultimately declared the case closed, but he never agreed with that. Now that he has a chance to investigate it all over again, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: It wasn't just the bodies that were buried. It was the truth.

    Stevon says: "good story"
    "Enjoyable but,"
    Overall

    I love all the Prey books and will continue to read them as long as Sanford writes them. I liked the way he went back to the past but something about this book fell short for me perhaps it was the narrator. I think he took away from the story and I truly hated the way he did the female voices made them all sound like idiots. Anyway bottom line is it is still a Lucas Davenport book and who isn't going to read it? Now I want a new Virgil Flowers book!

    Haller is a Lincoln Lawyer, a criminal defense pro who operates out of the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car, to defend clients at the bottom of the legal food chain. It's no wonder that he is despised by cops, prosecutors, and even some of his own clients. But an investigator is murdered for getting too close to the truth and Haller quickly discovers that his search for innocence has taken him face to face with a kind of evil as pure as a flame.

    Steven says: "Great Legal Thriller, Great Reader"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Easy listen and much better than the movie! Can't go wrong with a Connelly book.
