    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Any additional comments?

    Most of the audible books I buy I end up rating a 4 or a 5. After listening to this book, I realize I should save my ratings of 5 for a book like this. Harlan Coben is great, although after a while Myron Bolitar can get boring. I have enjoyed many Bolitar books, but there has never been a non-Bolitar book that I would not rate a 5 or above.
    The narrator for Missing You was excellent even though I usually prefer male narrators, especially Scott Brick.
    Highly recommend this novel!

  • Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition

    Story
    (280)

    In The China Study, T. Colin Campbell revolutionized the way we think about our food with the evidence that a whole food, plant-based diet is the healthiest way to eat. Now, in Whole, he explains the science behind that evidence, the ways our current scientific paradigm ignores the fascinating complexity of the human body, and why, if we have such overwhelming evidence that everything we think we know about nutrition is wrong, our eating habits haven’t changed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Whole to be better than the print version?

    No difference.


    What other book might you compare Whole to and why?

    Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer or The Omnivores Dilemma or In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. These 2 books elaborate in a less scientific way to "Whole."


    What about Don Hagen’s performance did you like?

    Excellent reader. Not biased.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost.


    Any additional comments?

    Very Important Read for all. Your health may depend on it (not trying to overexaggerate).

    Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood - facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf - his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong.
