    Every day thousands of animals die in laboratory experiments. Some say these experiments provide essential scientific knowledge, while others will do anything to prevent them. James and Lauren Adams are stuck in the middle. They're Cherub agents. Trained professionals with one essential advantage: adults never suspect that children are spying on them. For official purposes, these children do not exist.

    Another good story, both written well and researched well. Like many of the Cherub books, it has a social message. I have it four stars on performance simply because a latter section the narrator seems to have a cold, but they made him soldier on with the narration anyway.

    It's just another day of high school for Zack Lightman. He's daydreaming through another boring math class, with just one more month to go until graduation and freedom - if he can make it that long without getting suspended again. Then he glances out his classroom window and spots the flying saucer.

    Story

    Will Wheaton is one of the best narrators of any genre. He really makes the books he reads come alive.

    Armada is a fun read, without the depth and drama of RP1 and with an ending that is so abrupt that it is unsettling. However the book does have the witty humor and fun feel you expect from Ernest Cline.

    Very fun book about a quirky group of friends in their last month of High School. While the book relives the cliques of high school, this is more than just a nerd triumphs over jocks book, delving into the psyche of several of the characters showing true depth in them.

    Some limited curse words and the sidekicks, Ben and Radar are hilarious.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Not so much a book as an investigative report on an unsolved crime. While the story starts out fascinating, the subject matter does drag a bit toward the end.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Weird cover but a book full of action and science. A few times in the beginning I was tempted to put it down, but in the end I am glad I stuck with it. It was a well written book, minimal cursing and some gory descriptions, but I did not find any of it gratuitous, but instead normally important for the story line.

    In keeping with his trademark style, Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code and Inferno, interweaves codes, science, religion, history, art, and architecture in this new novel. Origin thrusts Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon into the dangerous intersection of humankind's two most enduring questions - and the earthshaking discovery that will answer them.

    Story

    I enjoy Dan Brown novels, as they are designed to intrigue, inform and enlighten the reader. Some of them, like the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons, move at a frenetic pace while teaching of the inner workings of the church and various fringe sects. However, this novel seemed to have trouble making up its mind if it was an action novel, a comparative analysis of creationism vs evolution, or a guidebook on the architecture of Spain. While the book was interesting and entertaining, there are parts that were worked in that were just over the top with information that, while enlightening, just had me looking forward to the end.

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Story

    Really open and honest view of Andre’s life and mentality. While sometimes it appears that he is asking you to feel sorry for him, I really think he is just presenting the facts as he saw them and gives you keen insight to what he is thinking. While I would have liked more backroom stories of the ATP, there is certainly enough here for tennis buffs and not so much for the non-tennis people to enjoy a great story.

    Brendan McDonough was on the verge of becoming a hopeless, inveterate heroin addict when, for the sake of his young daughter, he decided to turn his life around. He enlisted in the Granite Mountain Hotshots, a team of elite firefighters based in Prescott, Arizona. Their leader, Eric Marsh, was in a desperate crunch after four hotshots left the unit, and, perhaps seeing a glimmer of promise in the skinny would-be recruit, he took a chance on the unlikely McDonough, and the chance paid off.

    I heard about this from my son, who went to college in Prescott. While not knowing much about this event, I thought it did a wonderful job of teaching you about the Hot Shot training and culture, as well as the events of the actual Yarnel Hill Fire.

    Amazing story, I am surprised I had not heard of it before. The narration is a dramatization and with distinct voices, which is helpful with so many well known characters.

    I will say that several of the voices get quite annoying, as did the buzzing in some of the outdoor sweeteners.
