    All Cry Chaos is a masterful and gripping tale that literally reaches for the heavens. The action begins when mathematician James Fenster is assassinated on the eve of a long-scheduled speech at a World Trade Organization meeting. The hit is as elegant as it is bizarre. Fenster’s Amsterdam hotel room is incinerated, yet the rest of the building remains intact. The murder trail leads veteran Interpol agent Henri Poincaré on a high-stakes, world-crossing quest for answers.

    Would you consider the audio edition of All Cry Chaos to be better than the print version?

    Grover Gardner is an outstanding narrator. I have yet to get a bad read by him.

    Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

    What did you love best about NOS4A2?

    Solid writing with good story


    What did you like best about this story?

    Triumph of good over evil


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Characterizations were good. However, I wish narrators would take time to learn the proper pronunciations of towns. Have-er-hill. Gimme me a break.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The monster that would not die

    Audie Murphy was a desperately poor eighteen-year-old orphan when he joined the Army, nineteen when he first saw a buddy die from an enemy bullet and an enemy die from one of his own. By VE day, he had killed at least 240 Germans, had single-handedly destroyed a German tank in one battle and held off six tanks in another, and had become the most decorated soldier in American history, winning every medal his country offered, including the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    Overall

    Although the story is one of death and injury, this book is certainly one of the best war stories I have ever read. The narration by Tom Parker is absolutely the most enjoyable narration I have ever heard in an audible book. He absolutely makes the characters come alive and this book is the prime example of why I find audible books so enjoyable.
