    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    Overall

    I was looking forward to this book because I have enjoyed Larry Niven's other books, but this one just seemed to wander around a bit. I knew it was a bit dated when I got it and I was able to get around the the 20th century technology. In the end it just kind of fizzled. I didn't realize I had reached the end of the book until I heard "epilogue". I was thinking these was another part to go.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Story

    As a fan of the Camel Club series I enjoyed the book and Ron McLarty's reading. Cassidy was OK but her acent was way too southern for West Virginia. Sounded more like Mississippi. I don't care much for the sound effects or background music.

    The story could easily have been another Cameal Club book so if you like that series you will like this book.

    Story

    In 1894 Carrie McGavock is an old woman who has only her former slave to keep her company...and the almost 1,500 soldiers buried in her backyard. Years before, rather than let someone plow over the field where these young men had been buried, Carrie dug them up and reburied them in her own personal cemetery. Now, as she walks the rows of the dead, an old soldier appears. It is the man she met on the day of the battle that changed everything.

    Overall

    I thought I was getting a novel about The Battle of Franklin. What I got was a compelling novel that describes the lives of the individuals and families just before, during and years after the battle. This was a very enjoyable book. I especially liked the multiple readers reading the different characters.

    Now that I've finished the book I want to go visit Franklin, TN and places where this story came from.
