    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Story

    Whenever a new Harlan Coben's book is publishing, I buy it immidiatly.
    Harlan Coben has a formula of smart-funny-human thrillers that I always enjoy hearing/ reading.
    Opposing to some of the reviews here- I also enjoyed the narrator's performance which made the book interesting and very floating.
    If you like Harlan Coben- you will enjoy this book!

    Where does Seconds Away rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not in the top 10, but I listened to the end which means it is not in the bottom 10...


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect was that it has a smooth story and a good building of the mystery...like all Harlan's books. the least interesting- It is missing the speed and the dialogues of Mayron's series and lack's the characters like Win etc.


    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think so. he is making this average listen worth more.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nope. Sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    Harlan is still my favorite

  • Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East

    In Israel and the West, it is called the Six Day War. In the Arab world, it is known as the June War or, simply, as "the Setback". Never has a conflict so short, unforeseen, and largely unwanted by both sides so transformed the world. The Yom Kippur War, the war in Lebanon, the Camp David accords, the controversy over Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the intifada, and the rise of Palestinian terror are all part of the outcome of those six days.

    Story

    This is a story about little-smart David against mighty Goliath, and David also didn't have anywhere to go! Interesting enough, one can find the fingertips of this war in today's middle east. in many aspects- nothing changed. what frightens me- is whether David is the same sharp guy as he used to be now that he has some gray hair and gain some weight?....
    Only time will tell.
    I recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain some knowledge about the middle east's history and to get a better view about Israeli/ Arab dispute.

  • Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School

    Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know - such as the brain's need for physical activity to work at its best. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget - and so important to repeat new information? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

    Beenre says: "My favorite book for students."

    Hi,
    If you reach that far and you actually thinking to buy this one- stop right there!
    No need to think- just buy (and hear it!).
    This is a scientific book written and read in a GREAT-FUNNY-SMART way that actually makes you think and enjoy from...well, brain science.
    Enjoy!
