    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    I enjoyed this audiobook; it wasnt on par with Dan's other 3 novels but it was entertaining. I was unimpressed with the slightly lame plot and I was often confused by badly described action scenes. But thats ok, because Dan Brown really learnt a lot from it, and he improves his style immensely in his other novels. All the same, it is pure Dan Brown and is perfect for those eager for some more of his style of writing, as we all wait for his next novel.

    Overall

    If you have not already had previous experience with the Russian language, then this is not for you as it will befuddle you and probably turn you off the language. It is simply a dictionary of Russian words and phrases read by a Russian woman and an American man who sounds bored to tears. In this course there is no real method to learning Russian; it simply presents the information and its up to you to learn yourself.

    If you are starting out, I highly recommend Pimsleur as it starts from basics and actually teaches you the language with a really great method for learning.

    However, the great thing about this course is that once you have a good grasp of Russian, it is invaluable in revising and solidifying what you have already learnt, and providing you with tons of new words and phrases that Pimsleur glossed over.

    It is a fantastic way to expand you Russian vocabulary, and for like $13, who can say nyet.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.
