    Overall

    This was the first Kenyon book that I listened to and I was instantly hooked. The narration of the this book is outstanding and the scope of its story is absolutely engaging. I will offer a warning, however. This book is not for the faint of heart. There are intense, and explicit scenes of violence and sexuality.

    Thanks to a heart transplant, former FBI agent Terrell McCaleb is enjoying a quiet retirement, renovating the fishing boat he lives on in Los Angeles Harbor. But McCaleb's calm seas turn choppy when a story in the "What Happened To?" column of the LA Times brings him face-to-face with the sister of the woman whose heart now beats in his chest.

    I really liked this book. The issue that I had with it was that I did see Clint Eastwood as this character and yet, because of the movie, I could not picture anyone else. The story itself, though was good.

This is the story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history.

    Overall

    This book was reccommended to me and is not my normal cup of tea, but I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even if you are not a "War Story" kind of person, you will probably like this book. It was engaging and gave me a greater appreciation for what our servive men and women go through. Give this book a try. I don't think you will be sorry.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    "Good but not GREAT!"
    Overall

    I liked this book, but I had a real hard time getting into it at first. I was not instantly engaged as I have been with other Connelly books. if you are a die hard Connelly fan, then get it, but if not, try some of his others and skip this one.

    The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to lead the investigation.

    Stephen says: "Average Harry Bosch Story"
    "Predictable but Worth the Listen."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. It held my interest with enough action and drama. The only negative was that I guessed the "Who Done It?" part of the book early on.

  • The Measure of a Man: A Spiritual Autobiography

    In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. His body of work is arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history, and the power and influence of that work are indicative of the character of the man behind the many storied roles. Sidney Poitier here explores these elements of character and personal values to take his own measure: as a man, as a husband and a father, and as an actor.

    A User says: "bravo!!!"
    "EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS BOOK!"
    Overall

    This is one of the most moving stories that I have ever listened to. Poitier's character is what I would want in a husband or a son. If you are raising a boy, read this book. If you are finding a spouse, read this book. If you want a clear definition of what a good man is, read this book. If you are an educator, as I am, read this book and mention it to your students.

    In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. But one woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the peal of bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair with the young queen.

    Sarah says: "Interesting new twist on the"
    "Snooze-Fest"
    Overall

    This was the most uneventful, boring book that I have ever listened to. I hate to comment so negatively because two other Philippa Gregory books were outstanding - The Constant Princess and The Other Bolyn Girl. Don't bother with this one!

    When Mary Boleyn comes to court as an innocent girl of 14, she catches the eye of Henry VIII. Dazzled by the king, Mary falls in love with both her golden prince and her growing role as unofficial queen. However, she soon realizes just how much she is a pawn in her family's ambitious plots as the king's interest begins to wane and she is forced to step aside for her best friend and rival: her sister, Anne. Then Mary knows that she must defy her family and her king, and take her fate into her own hands.

    Julie Gibson says: "ABRIDGED!!!"
    "Very Intriguing!"
    Overall

    This is a very well-crafted, interesting book. I would reccommend reading The Constant Princess first and then this book. It makes for a chronologically interesting story. Definitely worth the read.

    Story

    Raised on the battlefield and in the most beautiful Moorish palace in the world, sent to England alone at the age of 16 to take her place in a court where she couldn't speak the language, and abandoned and forced to endure poverty after the death of her husband, Katherine remained a woman of indomitable spirit, unwavering faith, and extraordinary strength. Philippa Gregory brings to life one of history's most inspiring women and creates one of the most compelling characters in historical fiction.

    Seasson says: "loved it"
    "Must Read!"
    Overall

    This is by far the best Philippa Gregory book I have listened to. It is beautifully written and the way she weaves the character of Catherine is outstanding. The perspective of this book was great. There is so much written about Anne, and Elizabeth and they are generally the focus of writings when it comes to the Tudor dynasty, but this glimpse into how it all may have begun is just exquisite!

    Back on the job after an involuntary leave of absence, LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch is ready for a challenge. But his first case is a little more than he bargained for. It starts with the body of a Hollywood producer in the trunk of a Rolls-Royce, shot twice in the head at close range - what looks like "trunk music", a Mafia hit.

    Dan says: "Another Harry Bosch winner"
    "Not an Edge of Your Seat Type of Book"
    Overall

    This is a Harry Bosch book, and therefore, it is entertaining, but I have to say that it was the least interesting of the ones that I have read so far. I did not like the love interest in this book.
