    Under secret orders from the president, U.S. Army Major Zeus Murphy sabotages a Chinese invasion fleet on the eve of its assault against Vietnam. But Murphy and fellow officer Win Christian are trapped behind enemy lines after Christian’s erratic behavior gives them away. Back in America, President Chester Greene fails to convince Congress or the Pentagon that the Chinese invasion of Vietnam is the first step in a plan to rule Asia – and eventually go to war with the United States.

    I was hoping for an updated version of Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising. That book was gripping all the way. This one plods and drags endlessly.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    Story

    Reacher finally meets "The Voice" and in the end it's a throw away. A potential daughter that looks and thinks like him and it ends with a fizzle. The main antagonists go away without impact. This storyline had so much potential, but it seemed that Lee Child , himself, just lost interest and ended it.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    What disappointed you about A Dance with Dragons?

    Awful narration. HIRE SCOTT BRICK!


    Would you ever listen to anything by George R. R. Martin again?

    NO


    What didn’t you like about Roy Dotrice’s performance?

    Random voices...all bad...all off.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Dance with Dragons?

    Reek


    Any additional comments?

    After 200+ hours I,d like to see some dramatic catacysmic climax, but all we get is the sudden deaths of any characters you'd give a damn about.

  • Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

    Story
    (149)

    A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation.

    Stanley says: "Truly frightening"
    "anti Bush anti Christian"
    Overall

    This was not a history of Blackwater. It is simply a thinly veiled left wing spewing of hatred. I am sure that Blackwater is many things,good and bad. This severely imbalanced book was like a 14 hour MSNBC Keith Olberman tirade against conservatives and Christians.

    James Patterson's explosive debut in the young adult market is guaranteed to create legions of new fans for this beloved, multimillion-selling author.

    Daniel Freed says: "Very Entertaining"
    "bait and switch"
    Overall

    I enjoyed When The Wind Blows and The Lake House and was eager to see the story of Max,her babies, and her flock unfurl further.I was terribly disappointed when most of the characters and the story line changed radically.This story was dull and predictable in setting up sequels but I don't think anyone will care.I know I don't.
