    At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. But he made a deadly mistake. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray -- doing 15 years in a Tennessee jail -- already knew. "You never get nothing for nothing."

    Mark says: "One of the best thrillers ever!"
    "This book makes me glad to have time to listen!"

    What did you love best about The Firm?

    The character development and suspense were superb!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abby, the main character's wife, who was actually more of a minor character, was my favorite because she was effective and not overly emotional, especially for being kept in the dark for so long...


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Tammy, who had various other names was really colorful and outstanding.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I kept waiting for Abby to find out but to say more would be a spoiler.Grisham always adds enough corruption to make his books have that gritty taste of reality. Nobody is squeaky clean and all his characters are multi-faceted.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    The characters are so well-developed and the writing so excellent. If you like the fantasy genre more than the sci-fi side of books, I can't think of one more highly recommended.

But in a war against an enemy armed with the powers of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is - or where he will strike next?

    Masques Book 1 picked up steam as it rolled along. It reminded me of an old-fashioned story in which the worst and best details are left to the imagination.The characters were well-developed and thoroughly enjoyable. Narration was lively and easy to enjoy.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Joanna says: "Wow!"
    "excellent"
    Overall

    Very cool. The hero is so human, with great talent, great tragedies, and lots of learning from his mistakes. Please don't make a movie of this one - it couldn't do it justice.

  • A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose

    Story
    (847)

    Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

    Mr. Word Sponge says: "A Realized Being Shares In Person...a rare find."
    "important stuff"
    Overall

    I really like Tolle's work. I wish someone else's voice was used for the audio book, but the content outweighs the detriments of Tolle's voice.

    October “Toby” Daye is a changeling, the daughter of Amandine of the fae and a mortal man. Like her mother, she is gifted in blood magic, able to read what has happened to a person through a mere taste of blood. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, most changelings are second-class children of Faerie spending their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations. Toby is the only changeling who has earned knighthood, and she re-earns that position every day.

    Marci says: "What a fantastic book!"
    "decent"
    Overall

    I found the character development a little light and the fey terms a bit much in the beginning, but it grew on me and I really got into it after the beginning.
