Tell us about yourself! I am a 69 yr old female. I love books but due to vision limits I now actually don't read much unless I can get large print. I enjoy books that give me a good story line and move forward at a good pace.

    It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.

    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    Cris says: "Ugh!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Alex Cross, Run to be better than the print version?

    For me it is hard to read a printed edition. I have eye problems and I have to have a very strong magnifying glass to read.


    What other book might you compare Alex Cross, Run to and why?

    Merry Christmas Alex. Because they were both great.


    What about Michael Boatman and Steven Boyer ’s performance did you like?

    Yes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both laugh & cry


    Any additional comments?

    I love the Alex Cross series. And other James Patterson novels.

  • American Conspiracies: Lies, Lies, and More Dirty Lies That the Government Tells

    Story
    (144)

    In this explosive account of wrongful acts and ongoing cover-ups, Jesse Ventura takes a systematic look at the wide gap between what the American government knows and what it reveals to the American people. For too long, we the people have sat by and let politicians and bureaucrats from both parties obfuscate and lie. And according to this former Navy SEAL, former pro wrestler, and former Minnesota governor, the media is complicit in these acts of deception.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    might be better if I could read it myself, but eye sight doesn't allow for it.


    What other book might you compare American Conspiracies to and why?

    can not think of any. I like mysteries and books that make me able visulize the action.


    What aspect of George K. Wilson’s performance would you have changed?

    what wouldn't I have


    Could you see American Conspiracies being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    not at all

    When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early 40s, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it at first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town's council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.
