    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Overall

    I was a bit hesitant to approach this novel, given the recent hype. I found it a most enjoyable mystery on multiple fronts. It reminded me a bit of THIRTEENTH TALE - not a predictable mystery, but more genuine. The characters were more interesting than so many and the setting is one with which many readers are unfamiliar. I look forward to the next volume.

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Graham S. Stafford says: "Love the Camel Club"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    This title was not up to the standards of the Camel Club. It was entirely too predictable and shallow. You will figure out the entire mystery in the first 20 minutes. Save your credits.

    Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven, which may not even exist.

    Enid says: "EXCELLENT!!!"
    "Delightful"
    Overall

    I have read and listened to a number of Funke's books. This narration is nothing short of delightful. While Inkheart is more complex and indeed more frightenting, this title is ideal for the younger reader and for family listening. I disagree, however that adults would not enjoy the characters, plot and narration. There is enough complexity to engage any willing listening. This author's work is pure joy and I look forward to a sequel.
