    Twenty years ago, 16-year-old Tara Martin disappeared from a small town in the heart of England. Now, her sudden return and the mind-bending tale of where she’s been will challenge our very perception of the truth. For 20 years after Tara Martin disappeared, her parents and her brother, Peter, lived in denial of the grim fact that she was gone for good. Then suddenly on Christmas Day, the doorbell rings at her parents’ home, and there, dishevelled and slightly peculiar looking, Tara stands. It’s a miracle, but alarm bells are ringing for Peter. Tara’s story just does not add up.

    This book was a fascinating study in delusion (or not) and all ofthe characters seemed real and interesting. I would recommend it.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Ed says: "Grisham Light"
    "good read but unrrealistic"

    Story

    This book was so unrealistic and the hero just too cleaver and the FBI just too stupid to really make this a good book. It had a surprise ending only because it was so ridiculous.

    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuild­ing civilization under orders from the provisional govern­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    Jeff says: "Not the next great american author I was hoping"
    "awful"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if it had a plot, a good story, god characters, anything to make it interesting


    Would you ever listen to anything by Colson Whitehead again?

    What was interesting was the idea of a plaque that could wipe out the human race, but how they behaved and what they did was ridiculous and not realistic. The idea that they would have bid corporations still sponsoring products was absurd and I am a liberal.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Beresford Bennett’s performances?

    no


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was good


    Any additional comments?

    no
