    Damaged Portland detective Archie Sheridan spent 10 years tracking Gretchen Lowell, a beautiful serial killer. But in the end, she was the one who caught him. Two years ago, Gretchen kidnapped Archie and tortured him for 10 days, but instead of killing him, she mysteriously decided to let him go.

    "Great First Novel"
    Overall

    Heartsick is one of those books you can't put down. It grabs you from the first page and pulls you along from there. There are twists and turns in the plot, some you can see, others that make you gasp. If you like novels by Patrica Cornwell, Thomas Harris or Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child you'll love this addition to the genre.

    Stephen King and Peter Straub reintroduce you to Jack Sawyer of The Talisman, once a precocious boy traversing the Territories to save his mother and her "twinner," now a retired homicide detective drawn back to his past.

    "My ears!"
    Overall

    I was so excited to see this book at Audible and snatched it up, only to fling my iPod across the room after about 15 minutes of having my ears tortured. I just couldn't get past the narrator for the life of me. Only time that's happened in over 5 years of listening to books on audio.

    Nefertiti and her younger sister, Mutnodjmet, have been raised in a powerful family that has provided wives to the rulers of Egypt for centuries. Ambitious, charismatic, and beautiful, Nefertiti is destined to marry Amunhotep, an unstable young pharaoh. It is hoped by all that her strong personality will temper the young Amunhotep's heretical desires.

    A User says: "Very Interesting"
    "Wonderful Peek into the Past"
    Overall

    Egypt has it's own special allure for most. Names like Nefertiti's bring with it visions of gold and hot sun. This books brings that to life with wonderful force and character. The individuals in this books are well rounded and thought out, with strengths and flaws that are easy to relate to. The story fleshes out the Egyptian past and brings the Royal lifestyle to light, with enough of a connection to history that I felt I learned something of the true past.

    When Mr. Earnshaw brings a black-haired foundling child into his home on the Yorkshire moors, he little imagines the dramatic events which will follow. The passionate relationship between Cathy Earnshaw and the foundling, Heathcliff, is a story of love, hate, pity, and retribution, the effects of which reverberate throughout the succeeding generations.

    Stephanie says: "Classic"
    "Classic?"
    Overall

    Seriously. I adore classic lit, I'm an admitted anglophile, but WTF? Who decided THIS was a classic? I forced myself to listen to the book in it's entirety. The narrators were fine, but the material is god awful. I kept hoping it would get better, but it just got worse. It was like watching some horrible car accident, that was then struck by a train and finally a plane crashed into it, causing the whole fiasco to burst into flames.

    Do you doubt I feel strongly about this? :)

    Listen to this at your own risk. If this is what some women think as romantic, I hope they find their own personal stalkers for their version of 'True Love'. Bah!
