    Story

    In 1914, a spirited American girl named Mary Russell meets a retired Sherlock Holmes in the English countryside. Instantly realizing that Mary is gifted with astonishing deductive powers, the Great Detective emerges from retirement to join her as she tracks down a fiendish assassin.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    This book is a great listen and will be enjoyed by anyone who favors the classic English mystery. It is a very different view of an older, retired Sherlock Holmes, who renews his interest in investigation when he meets Mary Russell, a young, strong-minded and independent young woman whom he takes on as his "apprentice". While some may be disappointed in this depiction of Sherlock Holmes, which varys in some very significant ways from the original portrayed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the characterization of Mary and her relationship to Holmes more than makes up for and justifies the revisions, in my opinion. Jennie Sterlin is a wonderful reader, and the book moves quickly and leaves the reader anxious for the next installment.

    All the Pretty Horses, the first volume of the Borders Trilogy, tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons; beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. With two companions, he sets off on an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.

    Gene says: "A Super-Listen"
    "Don't waste your time"
    Overall

    It is very rare for me to want to put down a book before I finish it, but this one almost made me do it! Stiff, one-dimensional charactors, no plot to speak of, and descriptions and scenery so overdone that you find yourself thinking "enough already!!" One of the worst books I have ever read, and I read a LOT!
