  • The Hungry Ocean

    In his number-one best seller The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger describes Linda Greenlaw as "one of the best sea captains, period, on the East Coast." Now Greenlaw tells her own riveting story of a 30 day swordfishing voyage aboard one of the best-outfitted boats on the East Coast, complete with danger, humor, and characters so colorful they seem to have been ripped from the pages of Moby Dick. The excitement starts immediately, even before Greenlaw and her five-man crew leave the dock.

    Overall

    I love the sea and everything about it. I respect the fisherman that risk their lives in this dangerous profession. But this book was one of the most boring I have ever read, the drone of details stole away my interest as I could hardly wait until the book was over. Unless you are seriously thinking of becoming a professional fisherman, skip this book. If you are considering it, this is the most concise and detailed book anywhere on how to do it, what to expect once you leave the dock and anything else you may wish to know but forgot to think of asking. There is no doubt the author is great at what she does because of the attention to details. But she is not a good author. The Perfect Storm was a great book because you could not put it down, this book is hard to finish because I could not stay awake.

    I have become a Dale Brown fan as this is the 5th book in a row I have listened to. Edge of your seat action, great plot if you like this high tech espionage stuff. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as I have all Dale Browns book, so far this has been the best of them all. The epilogue was great and I am looking forward to the sequel. Keep up the great work, please!

    Hell Hole is the fourth book in the mystery series featuring hardened former military PD and current Sea Haven, New Jersey, police officer John Ceepak and his partner, wise-cracking Danny Boyle.

    In Hell Hole, Ceepak is confronted with his most personal case yet when he must investigate the alleged suicide of a military corporal who recently returned from Iraq. It turns out that this "locked stall" rest-stop suicide is anything but an open-and-shut case.

    Overall

    This is a book written for grade school kids if it were not for the story line. I was very disappointed and could hardly finish it. I would not recommend this book to anyone. The storyline was good but the way it was written was not, very childish and boring. Don't waste your money on this one, or your time!

    Hoodwinked by a villainous uncle and swept away into slavery aboard a ship bound for the Americas, a young man embarks on one of literature's great adventures. Befriended by a Scottish soldier running from the British crown, they fight off the ship's crew and escape, only to be accused of murder. Forced to flee across the Scottish countryside, their dangerous journey becomes one in which a boy becomes a man, learning the meaning of loyalty, friendship, and honor.

    Great Book! More like listening to a play, very intense and gripping tale of a young lad who refuses to lay aside his morals. In spite of all that has happened to him. So this book was not only very entertaining, it was one of those few books that has a great moral behind the story, such as many of the books of yesteryear. I enjoyed it very much and the dramatization was done very professionally.
