    Meet Kolt Raynor. A Delta Force operator and one-time American hero, he is still trying to make sense of his life - and duty - after a secret mission gone bad. Three years ago, in the mountains of Pakistan, Raynor made a split-second decision to disobey orders - one that got some of his teammates killed and the rest captured. Now he’s been given a second chance to do right by his country, his men, and himself. But Raynor’s shot at redemption comes at a price.

    Story

    Prepare yourself for an entertaining romantic roller coaster ride between a New England lady seeking a lasting relationship and Netherlandishman seeking his soul mate after a painful divorce by his first wife due to the crippling injury to their son, or perhaps to better herself with her well off high school boyfriend.
    The novel doubles as a Fromers guide to any perspective tourist seeking to partake in the spas of Budapest and enjoy the cities art scene while gaining an appreciation for the locals who will sometimes spend a major part of their day soaking at the cities numerous spas, as it was alluded to in the novel, this Zen like way of life is greatly contrasted to their Austrian neighbors, reasons for the difference between the two cultures may be the Hungarian people's tribal / nomadic roots.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    This was kind of pulp fiction like, his law firm consisted of werewolves and vampires; it was entertaining but not realistic. The author lumped all kinds of mythical creatures together, not a waste of credit but cannot compare to serious fantasy like "Blood Song" "Tower Lord" and "The Red Knight". And yes druids did exist, unlike werewolves and vampires, except the druid in this story was more like a caricature of a wizard.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Great listen so good thought it was abridged, I think Frank Herbert should have rewritten this book into 3 books, I guess since it was his first book he had to cut it short. Some reviewers complained about the narration, which was outstanding, except for Count Fenring who had a stutter, but he had few lines.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    In Savages, Don Winslow introduced Ben and Chon, twentysomething best friends who risk everything to save the girl they both love, O. Now, in his high-octane prequel, Winslow reaches back in time to tell the story of how Ben, Chon, and O became the people they are. Spanning from 1960s Southern California to the recent past, it is a tale of family in all its forms. As the younger generation does battle with drug dealers and crooked cops, they learn that their future is inextricably linked with their parents' history.

    About 2 hrs in, no characters of interest and poor narration. Surprised this novel has been
    compared to the Song of Fire and Ice. Since I cannot review after I return it I am reviewing now, maybe that explains why there are so few reviews.
