    Now it has become terrifyingly clear that the Chimes have the potential to bring down all that Richard and Kahlan have worked to protect, and even the power of the Sword of Truth may not be enough to stem the tide of their unleashed magical force. But if the Chimes cannot be stopped, first they will ravage Richard and Kahlan, then all of D'Hara, and then the entire world.

    Would you listen to Soul of the Fire again? Why?

    Yes, I would skip the middle though!!!


    What other book might you compare Soul of the Fire to and why?

    It stands alone.


    What does Buck Schirner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    You can feel the hurt in Richard at times.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Te Vote!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't know where they were going with the whole minster of defense story but it came out in the end. Everything comes out in the end and the last part is awesome,I was on the edge of my seat when Kahlan was done for and Richard was their but not their for her! I just wanted to say its Kalhan. In all the other you could séance her presence what's is going on!!! So I'm starting the 6th book!!

    It was love at first sight. From the moment 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham saw Christine, he knew he would do anything to possess her. But Christine is no lady. She is Stephen King's ultimate vehicle of terror.

    With a postscript describing SEAL efforts in Afghanistan, The Warrior Elite takes you into the toughest, longest, and most relentless military training in the world. What does it take to become a Navy SEAL? What makes talented, intelligent young men volunteer for physical punishment, cold water, and days without sleep?

    Story

    I've read FEARLESS: THE ADAM BROWN STORY and LONE SURVIVOR both books goes into what happens when you show up at buds training.The Warrior Elite is a day by day account of what it takes to pass the toughest military school in the world. The great thing about the book is its written by a former NAVY SEAL "DICK COUCH" and after all these years later to see that its still the same but different. Dick knows what it will take to finish the school but he still has a heart and he wants everyone to pass, even though he knows its not possible. If you want to know what it takes to be a NAVY SEAL, this is the book... You might think twice before you join. Over 128 men started class 228 and only 20 made it...

    At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.

    Only thing i can say is WOW!! What a book and movie. The great thing is this book is spot on to the movie. Frank Muller does a great job narrating this book. I can't tell you enough of how great of a job he does with every character. When you start his book you won't wanna stop. One extra thing that you do get is the life in the nursing home and how mean one orderly is to Paul Edgecombbe and how hard it is to see Mr Jingles everyday!!! Stephen King does a great job with this book which was a monthly series when it first came out. How do you kill an angel like John Coffey? Only KING can....

    Game of Thrones fans watch in delight as the epic battle of Lannister and Stark entangles the Seven Kingdoms. But only the sharpest notice how these houses echo Lancaster and York in the War of the Roses. Druids, Catholics, and even Zoroastrians wander through Westeros, reframing their religions for a new world of fantasy. But how medieval is Westeros? Did lady knights and pirates really battle across Europe? The audiobook Winter is Coming: Symbols and Hidden Meanings in A Game of Thrones explores all this and more, from the echoes of history to the symbols and omens our beloved characters.

    If you have read all five books this is the book for you!!! I've read all five books and listened on Audible and i still don't understand everything that is going on in the 7 Kingdoms. This book will fill in the blanks book by book and page by page. You will learn a lot about John Snow and the story of his mother. you will learn about bastards in Westrow and a lot about the Dragons!!! I still can't get enough. If your a fan check it out.

    Good short story by Ken Follett narrated by a cast of readers with back ground music to keep you on the edge of your seat. A blotched mission goes wrong and the leader of the group Flick has one more chance. Four girls parachute in behind enemy lines,occupied by the Germans. With every turn and every minute impossible Flick will make sure the mission is finished with this second chance!!! Unless the German Detective Deter has anything to do with it!!

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    I wished the whole book was about Kaladin and read by Michael Kramer. In book two Kaladin takes over the Kings guard and he takes the slaves of bridge 4 to a different status. DALINAR is at the point in his life to leave his Black Thorn days behind and become a politician. Dalinars son Aladun Is winning all the schard blades in the kingdom and it won't be enough to stop the white assassin. But the assassin is after The High Prince Dalinar not the King and only Kaladin can save him. After three schard barerrs can't defeat the white assassin Kaladin finds out he is special he finds out he is the Knights Radiant but he's not the only one!!! Later on in the book Shallan comes into her own and with her own schard peace she finds out she is special like Kaladin and she is the only one that can stand up to Kaladin!!! The two will grow together and become unstoppable. It's up to Dalinar to lead his people into the future and bring the Radiance together. I've read almost every book by Brandon Sanderson and this is by far his best series so far and that's a huge boast!!! Must read

    I remember watching the TV series when i was little and i was scared to death of that clown.
    'Pennywise the clown' After a week of watching this series it came down to the worst ending of all times!!! a lame spider? REALLY... 44 hr book, it set in my library for over year a long time!! I wished i would have started it a year ago. I couldn't put it down this is one of King's best with out a doubt and its still scary.The book ending is so much better than the TV series,Ya its a spider and a eye,wolf man,dad,mummy,CLOWN and anything else that scared you when you were little!! From the seven kids point of view aka 'THE LOSER CLUB' they have a story to tell and a promise to keep. They made a promise that if the killings started again they would come back to Derry, Maine and finish IT for good..OH YA
    WATCH OUT FOR THAT HENRY BOWERS KID!!!! HE'S REAL MEAN BUT NAT AS MEAN AS THAT CLOWN 'IT'..... MUST READ
