    From the rugged mudflats of the Northwestern frontier to a rusting strip mall, West of Here is a conversation between two epochs. In his eagerly awaited second novel, Jonathan Evison tells the stories of the people who first inhabited the mythical town of Port Bonita in Washington State from 1887-1891. Moving ahead more than a century to 2005-06, he introduces those who live there now and must deal with the damage done by their predecessors.

    "Interesting"
    Overall

    I would have liked it to stay more in the historical mode. The references to the Raiders baffled me. The Raiders are in Oakland.....the SeaHawks are in Seattle....unless there's another televised Raiders team in Port Bonita. Hmmmm.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    Jason Spencer says: "Action packed, edge of your seat "page-turner""
    "Predictable"
    Overall

    Way too predictable. A lot of hard-to-believe scenarios made it totally unbelievable. The audio quality was not good - dubbing was poorly done.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    B.J. says: "Perfect."
    "Excellent!!"
    Overall

    This is one of the most disturbing, yet enthralling series I have ever read. Salinder was subjected to the extremes of injustice and I was satisfied to read that she was totally vindicated. My only, probably unrealistic, hope is that something like this never happened in real life. I was appalled, disturbed and emotionally affected by the series. Kudos, Steig Larsson! I will most certainly listen to the series again.
