    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    Strange, but compelling story. Great development of the main character, Shadow. The multi-voice performance was awesome. I'm pleased Gaiman left a potential meeting between Shadow and Jesus out of the body of the book (. . , to include such a meeting in the book would have been a real problem for me). In many ways, the story is a very interesting take of America and Americans, both historically and currently. In the introduction, Neil Gaiman indicates that people either love the book, or hate the book. I must say I liked the book and I want to listen to it again to uncover more of the hidden secrets of the complexity, but I didn???t love it. The basic story premise is actually pretty simple, the characters well developed, and the historic interludes are very informative and entertaining. This is a fast read, even with the complexity. Btw, I will never be able to watch ???I Love Lucy??? without thinking about the book (. . . I???m ruined for life!)!

    I thought the book was one of the best SF books I've listen to. Deep character development, and an involved story. Great reading performances.

    For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance?

    Jean says: "Against All Enemies"
    "Has Tom Clancy has lost his magic?"
    Overall

    Against all Enemies was a painful read. It is not classic Clancy, by any stretch of the imagination. The plot was week, much of the detail was unneeded and the main characters were not very likeable. Worse of all, Against all Enemies did not seem like a Clancy book at all.

    Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers. Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home.

    Overall

    Great story, with deep character development. Look at this book as the first installment. I would expect the next book to pick-up right where this one left off - in time and the sequence of events. I can't wait! Scott Brick did an outstanding naratation job!

    Three time-traveling historians are visiting World War II England: Michael Davies, intent on observing heroism during the Miracle of Dunkirk; Merope Ward, studying children evacuated from London; and Polly Churchill, posing as a shopgirl in the middle of the Blitz. But when the three become unexpectedly trapped in 1940, they struggle not only to find their way home but to survive as Hitler's bombers attempt to pummel London into submission.

    Mike From Mesa says: "Rescued by the second half"
    "Great for ScFi and History buffs"
    Overall

    Read the first book in the series, Blackout, before reading All Clear. Great books! Both are some of my favorite listens on Audible. The narrator does just an awesome job swithching between American and the various British accents, and between male and female voices. High level of realism. Great job of melding SciFi with the history of the Blitz! I listened to Blackout again while waiting for All Clear and it was just as good on the second listen. All Clear was able to wrap everything up in a very pleasing and surprising way.

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    John Robertson says: "What happened to Scott Brick?!!"
    "An awesome read!"

    The Lion is as good as the Lion's Game, which is my all time favorite audible listen. Scott Brick is flawless!

    At an international medical conference in Prague, Dr. Fiona Devin, an American scientist attached to the Department of Defense, is contacted by one of her Russian colleagues. Dr. Valentin Petrenko, a specialist in rare diseases, is concerned about a small cluster of deaths in Moscow but even more concerned by the Russian government's refusal to publicly release any information or data on the outbreak. When he meets with Devin to pass on his case notes and samples, the two are attacked.

    I've listened to all the other Covert One Novels. I found the story fast paced and enjoyable. The new narrator took a while to get used to. Erik Bergmann did a good job on the character voices, although the voice of Klein was so different from the prior readings that I never got used to the new Klein. Quite a good story - for Covert One fans.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    This is the best audio book I've listened to out of dozens. A must hear!
