    He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson.

    I am a fan of Mr. Demille, and this one started a bit slow for me, but by the end I was gripped.

    I would recommend.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    What would have made The Way of Kings better?

    The narration was so boring! I couldn't get stand it.
    I really tried. I consume books on tape. I read the reviews and was intrigued.

    Might be great, but could do it. Michael Kramers, well, I fell asleep every time. Kate Reading (love the name:) was good. But too little too late.


    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    I couldn't tell... good characters, too much bouncing around.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s performances?

    No.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Way of Kings?

    I can't based on the narration.

    In a heavily guarded mansion in a posh Virginia suburb, a man and a woman start to make love, trapping a burglar behind a secret wall. Then the passion turns deadly, and the witness is running into the night - because what he has just seen is a brutal slaying involving the president of the United States.

    Patti says: "Loved the book and the characters"
    "One of the best!"
    Overall

    I am a AUDIBLE junkie and this one was rivotting.
    Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators.

    In the half-built skeleton of a monstrously vulgar mansion in one of L.A.'s toniest neighborhoods, a watchman stumbles on the bodies of a young couple - murdered in flagrante and left in a gruesome postmortem embrace. Though he's cracked some of the city's worst slayings, veteran homicide cop Milo Sturgis is still shocked at the grisly sight: a twisted crime that only Milo's killer instincts - and psychologist Alex Delaware's keen insights - can hope to solve.

    P. Giorgio says: "Good book... but"
    "Kellerman--KILLERMAN"
    Overall

    I love Kellerman. Jonathan.
    AND love John Rubenstein. This audio book does not disappoint and I am hard to please.
    Plus read an article about a year ago on his collection of guitars... cool how he incorporates the Robin the guitar maker....

    In Jonathan Kellerman's gripping novels, the city of Los Angeles is as much a living, breathing character as the heroes and villains who roam its labyrinthine streets. Sunny on the surface but shadowy beneath, this world of privilege and pleasure has a dark core and a dangerous edge. In True Detectives, Kellerman skillfully brings his renowned gifts for breathless suspense and sharp psychological insight to a tale that resonates on every level and satisfies at every turn.

    A User says: "Disappointing"
    "For J Kellerman fans this is a must!"
    Overall

    I have listen to all of J Kellerman books.
    This is all time best for me.
    I wished a little more for Dr.Delaware and Lou Sturgis. However, the developed of brothers Moises and Erin makes this a must listen.
    Bravo! Mr. Kellerman. Can wait for next installment.

    Apache hitman "Crow" Cromartie's mission is simple: find young Amber Francisco and bring her back to her father, Louis, in Florida. It should be an easy payday for a pro like Crow, but there are complications. Amber, now living in squalor with her mother, Fiona, is mixed up with members of a Latino gang. And when Louis orders Crow to kill Fiona before heading back with Amber, he can't follow through.

    Ross says: "Jesse and Crow - the next Spenser and Hawk?"
    "Could Not Tell"
    Overall

    The narration is so bad I could not get through 10 minutes. Always in third person. I listen to audiobooks compulsively and this was the worst ever encountered. If the book was good, could not tell. Maybe I will have to read! Who has time for that?
