    Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land.

    "Long and drawn out, but the ending made up for it"
    Overall

    First of all, the summary for the book is way off. There is no long drawn out cat and mouse change between Jensen and Richard. Other than that, this is typical of Goodkind's latest books in the series. There is a long drawn out middle that is sometimes boring to sit through, but the ending ties it together and makes it worth it. I'll move on to the next book.

    As Richard fought to focus his mind on his need to remain conscious, the breathless voices sounded to him as if they were coming from some great, dim distance. He wasn't sure who they were. He knew that he knew them, but right then it just didn't seem to matter. He struggled to put voice to his burning concern, but he couldn't form the words, couldn't get out any more than a gasping moan.

    Karanja says: "Much improved from the Naked Empire"
    "Long and drawn out, but the ending made up for it"
    Overall

    Same title as my review for the last book. There are not many books I would want to listen to the abridged version, but this is one of them. The story is great and the narration is good. The story line starts with Richard losing something important to him. He gives up everything to get it back. He is faced with an haunting danger while early characters are brought back into the story. The ending gets you ready to listen to the next book.

    Story

    It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden...and about her octogenarian uncle, determined to know the truth about what he believes was her murder.

    Willliam says: "Wishing I got the "unabridged" version"
    "Pretty Good story, mature content"
    Overall

    The story line good and there is some strong character building. However, there is strong language and rape scenes that are very explicit that detracted from the story for me.

    In a book that's one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google, the fastest-growing company in history, to discover 40 clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by.

    Justin says: "A great place to start...."
    "Favorite Business Book Since Blue Ocean Strategy"
    Overall

    The world is changing and those who recognize it will prosper. This book goes into how knowing your core business very well and opening the rest up to the world can help you succeed in today's environment. The author takes a hard look at what Google has done to traditional businesses such as the newspaper industry. However, Jarvis does not stop there. He takes the next step to propose fixes to several industries. While many of his fixes are not feasible, they are all doable. And much to the disappointment of the current industry leaders, someone is going to catch on and take the lead.

    I would also recommend his blog as a nice refresher of the books content to keep you thinking.
