He is about to learn the real meaning of power - and the seductive lure of evil.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    I never saw this movie or book coming-twist after twist and turn after turn. Amazing Amy keeps coming and Nick's jaw continues to drop. A great love story that falls apart after years of marriage and not having kids.Amy and Nick are meant to be together. She moved from the fast city lights to slow moving suburban living at the home Nick grew up at and it still doesnt help.Only the love of Amy and the anniversary scavenger hunt will keep this couple and town together!!! Fatal Attraction at its best and its never what you or the cops think...

    I love Brandon Sanderson and Steelheart is a great start to another good series . Book two is almost out and Mitosis is a great fill in until book two 'Firefight' comes out. David and the rest of the Reckoners have vowed to protect Newcago but the people of Newcago are scared. The people are waiting for the Reckoners to fall apart because the Epics are still out there...

    What if—whoosh, right now, with no explanation—a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down?That’s what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened—not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children.

    Story

    I first watched this series on HBO then i read the book. This is one time the book is completely different but in a good way. Kevin isn't the mayor in the series and there is no talk of his dad or his mysterious dog killing friend. Holy Wayne in the series is a prophet or angel type leader. Jon who is Kevins son is following Wayne and taking care of his girlfriend. She is carrying the baby of Holy Wayne which Nore Durst finds in the end. Who is this baby? His wife and daughter has a lot of problems. One lives with the cult group The Guilty Remnant and the other could join!! Overall a good story about where a fourth of the world just disappeared. Is it the rapture or aliens ? I guess book two will explain a lot more because there is a whole lot more to tell about this crazy town called Mapleton. Maybe book two can tell us more? The HBO series is better than the book and you don't hear me ever say that much because the book usually is always better!!!

    Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.

    I wished it wouldn't have ended-I could read Follett all day. Follett does a great job putting fictional characters in true events. Book three is awesome! Follett puts all the old characters from the last book with their new families in book three. Out of all three books most of us can relate to the timeline in this book. Living in Alabama and listing to all the bad things that happened in this part of the country really puts chills all over my body. All five families lived through the hard times of a tough century where the growing and breaking up of these countries was tough on all five. These five families crossed each others paths on the way to help build these new countries. Love and war is a big part in all three books just as it is in our lives today. When you read a Ken Follett book he makes you feel like you are a part of the true events he writes about. If you haven't read this series, start today you will love it! MUST READ!!

    FitzChivalry - royal bastard and former king’s assassin - has left his life of intrigue behind. As far as the rest of the world knows, FitzChivalry Farseer is dead and buried. Masquerading as Tom Badgerlock, Fitz is now married to his childhood sweetheart, Molly, and leading the quiet life of a country squire. Though Fitz is haunted by the disappearance of the Fool, who did so much to shape Fitz into the man he has become, such private hurts are put aside in the business of daily life, at least until the appearance of menacing, pale-skinned strangers casts a sinister shadow over Fitz’s past...and his future.

    Story

    The first three book were awesome and that's hard to beat. But Robin Hobb has done it again with a great story line to bring Fitz aka "Tom Badgerlock" back to the Six Duchies.
    After years of living his life with Molly and their kids, Fitz has forgotten his assassin ways until his life is turned upside down. Fitz trying to raise a new little girl on his own after Molly has passed and the Fool coming back into his life after all these years is a recipe for disaster. Fitz has two new young would be assassins in his life to teach or not to teach-(that is the question). Will his young daughter find out about Fitz Chivalry's assassin life and will she still love him? Two books to go.....

But his journey was not without its supreme challenges. He was critically wounded in 2007 when he was struck by machine-gun fire at point blank range. During his intense recovery period, Redman posted a sign on his door, warning all who entered not to "feel sorry for [his] wounds."

Bad decision after bad decision Jason was at the point that he was going to drop out of the Navy all the way.

    Some have called him "Lawrence of Afghanistan". To the Pashtun tribesmen he is "Commander Jim", leader of the "bearded ones". He is Army Special Forces Major Jim Gant, one of the most charismatic and controversial U.S. commanders of modern memory, a man who changed the face of America's war in Afghanistan when his critical white paper, "One Tribe at a Time", went viral at the Pentagon, the White House, and on Capitol Hill in 2009.

    Story

    This is coming from a guy who was in the Army and my father retired from the Army. Major Gant was a soldiers soldier, the type of gung ho officer everyone wanted. After reading this book I'm ashamed that the top brass let this happen!! Did Major Gant break some Army regs.? YES!! Has most every solider in the Army done the same? YES!!! Jim Gant is a true Spartan. He got the job done and never lost a man down range and that is the stuff the Army can't take away. Major Gant's legend will grow and it should. I think Jim did turn tribal but that is what he was asked to do.Taking Ann Scott in was over the top but the heart wants what the heart wants. Drinking beer on christmas and you loose your rank? I was in Kuwait and alcohol and more was available while I was deployed. Everyone who has served in the military world knows Major Jim Gant was shafted. Its sad but Jim Gant can watch my six anytime!!!! One article 15 can't take away what you did for this country. Thanks for all you have done and your service!!!! Major Jim Gant makes me proud to say I was in the Army!!!! Hooah!!!
