    In the fourth installment of The Dark Tower, Roland and his band have narrowly escaped the city of Lud and boarded Blaine, a train that will take them to, of all places, Kansas, where the ghost city of Topeka has been depopulated by a superflu and where, alongside Interstate 70, an emerald palace rises enchantingly. Before Roland and the companions of his ka-tet continue along the Path of the Beam, Roland must tell his companions the tale that defines him both as a man and hero.

    "Another Awesome Saga for the Ka-Tet"
    Overall

    This book brings to light Roland?s reason for his tremendous single-minded quest for the Dark Tower. Stephen King has some fun with a Wizard of OZ like metaphor, and lays to rest forever the thought that Gunslinger Roland is anything but a deeply emotional human being. His treatment of the love relationship between Roland and Susan Delgado is poignant and masterful. The bonds between Jake, Oy, Susana Dean, Eddie, and Roland continue to grow ever deeper as does the strength of their Kef. A must read even for the uninitiated. The beauty of the Dark tower series of books is that due to Stephen Kings brilliant writing style, they each stand on their own and could be re-read often individually or sequentially with continued pleasure. I must add that the narration by Frank Muller is one of if not the best I have ever heard. This book is pure audible gold!

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "One of the best titles I have ever listened to!"
    Overall

    This is quite a long book covering a lot of the CIA's past yet brings the reader right up to date. It is full of fascinating twists and turns, and is narrated exceedingly well. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it. I also found it to be very educational, from a geopolitical perspective.

    In the third installment of the film that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name, John Connor is older and is still a target for killer machines from the future. The human resistance sends back the Terminator who saved his life when he was just a boy to protect him from an even more lethal Terminator model: the Terminatrix - in the shape of a woman and capable of making all previous Terminators seem slow and stupid. If Connor doesn't survive, the future is lost...

    J. Locke says: "All of what a movie can not offer"
    "Terminator 3 is AWESOME!!!"
    Overall

    I felt as if I was right in the middle of the action! It was a real treat to hear Arnold's actual voice used liberally through out the book. This is fast paced hair raising action that allows you to explore the characters in much greater depth than in the movies. A must read (listen) :-) even if you have never seen one of the Terminator flicks.
    Very enjoyable, Thanks for bringing us this title Audible!
