    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    If I had any other book at the time, I never would have made it through the first 2 hours.

    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    F. B. Herron says: "Do yourself a favor and listen to this book!"
    "Booorrriiinnnggg"
    Overall

    I'm glad a lot of people enjoyed this book, but to me it is the second most boring book I have listened to. The idea behind the story was great, but the story could have been told in two hours.

  • Port Mortuary: A Scarpetta Novel

    In this fast-paced story, a treacherous path from Scarpetta's past merges with the high tech highway she now finds herself on. We travel back to the beginning of her professional career, when she enlisted in the Air Force to pay off her medical school debt and found herself ensnared in a gruesome case of what seemed to be vicious, racially motivated hate crimes against two Americans in South Africa.

    "Get it over with"
    Overall

    If this book was available in an abridged format of say, 45 minutes, it would have been worth listening to. The idea was good, but the fill material was overwhelming. What a disappointment.

  • A Prayer for Owen Meany

    Story
    (73)

    Of all of John Irving's books, this is the one that lends itself best to audio. In print, Owen Meany's dialogue is set in capital letters; for this production, Irving himself selected Joe Barrett to deliver Meany's difficult voice as intended. In the summer of 1953, two 11-year-old boys – best friends – are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary and terrifying.

    Maxine Fuentes says: "Wonderful"
    "Thanks for the reviews"
    Overall

    As a reader of primarily thriller/mystery, I was hesitant to download this book. However, due to the extremely high rating given by the reviewers, I decided to risk it. What a wonderful book. It has expanded what I will look for in a book. Thanks again to all of the reviewers.

While she continues to climb the corporate ranks, her beloved twin sister is plagued by a chronic illness that will eventually kill her, leaving Rachel all alone.Serendipity in the form of a mysterious email lands in Rachel's lap one day, but not without a price.

    Suzanne says: "You can skip this Johansen book"
    "confusing"
    Overall

    This is the hardest book to follow. Although the story line is above average, I dread listening. Either the way it is written or the lack of differentiation of the characters in the narrator's voice makes it very hard to follow.

    In Antarctica, a scientific expedition drops anchor for a live news feed. As the CNN journalist begins her report, a massive, shimmering sphere of light suddenly appears in the sky, enveloping the ship in luminous white light before disappearing as mysteriously as it arrived - the entire event witnessed by an incredulous world audience.

    Daniel says: "Good adventure, but too political & anti-religion"
    "Fair book but hated political speeches"
    Overall

    Decent book, but the unnecessary political rants made me want to turn it off.
