  • The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption

    Animal lovers and sports fans were shocked when the story broke about NFL player Michael Vick’s brutal dogfighting operation. But what became of the dozens of dogs who survived? As acclaimed writer Jim Gorant discovered, their story is the truly newsworthy aspect of this case.

    Kim says: "Great Book!!!"
    "Fantastic author"
    Overall

    Jim Gorant is a skilled writer who brings this story to heart. With such writing the listener can not only see but feel the emotions of the little red dog. The researched information adds integrity to the story- educating as well as entertaining. Unfortunately, it is a very sad story for dog lovers such as my husband and myself- and we did not complete the audio story. Garcia did a wonderful job of narration and was easy to listen to.

    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have followed this series for many years - one of my favorites. The story line did change but it is still enjoyable.The narrator is awful, he seems to stop at the end of a line not the end of a sentence. His inflections are totally wrong for the actions at hand. I LOVE the books Rollins writes. He has started another series and unfortunately this narrator narrates- I will dust off my library card and read the book.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters were well developed quirky and the writer really made the personalities come through. I could not stop this book for wanting to get more listen in.
    I highly recommend for a different type of book that brings fresh air into a si fi read.

    In this Hugo Award-winning classic, Enoch Wallace is an ageless hermit, striding across his untended farm as he had done for over a century, still carrying the gun with which he had served in the Civil War. But what his neighbors must never know is that, inside his unchanging house, he meets with a host of unimaginable friends from the farthest stars.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A very good read. Great ideas and very well written. A thinking persons book. One of the very few I will listen to again.

    His interest in her was purely professional...or so he told himself. Nash Kirkland had sought out Morgana Donovan, self-proclaimed witch, to help him research his latest screenplay. The hardheaded skeptic didn't believe for a minute she was what she professed to be, but Nash somehow found himself falling under her bewitching spell. Nash had never trusted his feelings. How could he be sure the irresistible passion he felt was real and not just some conjurer's trick?

    This book had consistency. It was predictable with no intrigue that kept the reader hooked- and it didn't get any better. I became bored with the monotony of the writing. Obviously the product of mass writing. I have read some very good Nora Roberts books that kept me tuned in but this was not one of them. Narrator gave the best performance she probably could with the material given.
