    In this darkly funny story, Ray and Jewel Kaiser try (and push) their luck at the Paradise casino. What curious events ensue, what tricks of fortune and misfortune, make up the fabric of this novel about wising up better late than never.

    Are you sure this wasn't an abridged version with the salient parts removed? There is not much to recommend this book.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different reader and a different story.


    Has A Wanted Man turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    No way


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Can't believe I actually made it all the way to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    What a terrible book. Can't believe anyone would read more than one in this series. Not many books are better abridged, but this one would qualify. I really felt like I was reading a freshman college student's assignment.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Renda says: "Horrible Narration"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator.


    Has Separation of Power turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ken Kilban?

    Anyone could do better: Tiny Tim, Pee Wee Herman, the Aflac Duck...


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Separation of Power?

    Haven't finished the book yet and not sure if I will at this point.


    Any additional comments?

    Is there any chance this might be re-recorded? I would consider buying it again if it were available.

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Christine says: "Stick With It!"
    "Great story...horrendous narrator"
    Overall

    This is the first modern book in a long time that I believe deserves 5 stars; so good that I gladly waded through the Ben Stein-like narration. Don't know much about the author, but I'm willing to bet he was heavily influenced by Faulkner. Looking forward to reading his other two novels.

    Physical negotiates the political and medical forks in the labyrinth of our health care system and calls for sanity and enlightenment in the stem-cell research wars. It's a no-holds-barred, wrenching, often hilarious portrait of the looming mortality of a privileged generation that can't believe the party's winding down, if not over.

    Allison S says: "Very interesting, liked his perspective"
    "Drivel"
    Overall

    Just so much tripe and nonsense from a know-it-all left of center journalist. McManus should stick with poker and Vegas murders. I only wish I could get my money back on this one.
