    Treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Delaware when they are shocked to discover a World War II German U-boat. Inside, they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's "lost cellar." Fascinated, the Fargos set out to find the rest of the collection. But another connoisseur of sorts has been looking for the bottle they've just found.

    C. Johnson says: "A little bit National Treasure..."
    "Not the best Cussler"
    Overall

    I own every Cussler book written until he started sharing the story-line with someone else. The book is Cussler-esque but not on par with Atlantis Found, Treasure, and others. It's OK fluff, some exciting and imaginative moments, elementary plot, and read well. If you like his newer books then you won't be disappointed. If you are an old fan (NUMA and Dirk Pitt era) you will be let down.

    Story
    (97)

    The best-selling author of The End of Oil turns his attention to food and finds that the system we've entrusted with meeting one of our most basic needs is dramatically failing us. With his trademark comprehensive global approach, Paul Roberts investigates the startling truth about the modern food system.

    John M says: "kinda boring"
    "Scary"
    Overall

    While it may be already too late, we need to look more and more at getting to sustainability and nutrition. It really explains a lot of our food history.

  • A Confederacy of Dunces

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 32 mins)
    • By John Kennedy Toole

    Story
    (912)

    The hero of John Kennedy Toole's incomparable, Pulitzer Prize-winning comic classic is one Ignatius J. Reilly, "huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter". His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans' lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures.

    Jon says: "Well Done"
    "Maybe someone else"
    Overall

    The premise and the place are great...but the story didn't grab me. I just had to quit listening to the book. Not a book for me, but friends rave about it so it must be a matter of taste.
