  • The End of the Affair

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Story

    I usually never read books like this (love stories) but thought I would give it a try. I have to admit, it did hold my attention as I felt it was very well written and the narration was good. Since I rarely read these type of books, you would be better served to read the reviews of people who like these types of books, as I really don't have anything to compare it to.

    Story

    I agree with the last reviewer, in that this story was pretty boring. The main problem I had was the fact that it really didn't get into much of the mystery until the very end of the book. The rest of the book was just too detailed about everything outside of the actual plot. It wasn't until the very end of the book that the story got back on topic and discussed the plot. Too much detail about off-topic stuff and not enough plot.

    Standing over the body of a Supreme Court nominee, Lieutenant Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up - but it's also attracting a lot of unwanted media attention and blinding flash bulbs.

    Story

    I was disappointed in this book. I bought it to get a murder mystery, but this book contained way too many very explicit sex scenes. It was as if the author was trying to make it a murder mystery and romance novel combined, which just didn't work for me. The storyline was nothing great, as I usually like surprise endings, or twists and turns in a story, neither of which was contained in this book. Not sure if I will read any more of this authors books.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Although I am not a big science fiction fan, and had an idea from previous reviews that this story was in that genre, I I still downloaded it, due to the good reviews it got. It was a very entertaining book and was actually a great break from the type of stories I usually listen to.

    This was my first book by David Rosenfelt and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. The storyline was good and it was also very funny. I am presently reading the 2nd book in the Andy Carpenter series. I will continue to read Mr. Rosefelts books.

    "The Breathing Method", from Stephen King's bestselling collecton Different Seasons, takes place in an exclusive gentlemen's club in New York, where no one pays any dues. Membership is based upon a telling of tales, and one nightmarish tale about a disgraced woman determined to give birth - not matter the consequences - pays for them all.

    I didn't like the book, as I thought it was boring. I thought the narrator did a good job, as his voice fit the story, but other than that, I'm glad it was only a short story.

    Story

    After reading the first book in this trilogy, I couldn't wait to read the second. I thought it was just as rivoting as the first. I disagree with another writer who thought the narration was horrible. I found it just the opposite and thought the narrator did a fine job of portraying the different characters. Yes, the voices were somewhat absurd sounding, but I imagined they would sound that way, after hearing what absurd characters they were (by the descriptions of just how they looked). This is an excellent book and you won't want to put it down.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    First of all, this is not normally the type of book that I read, however I had heard so many good things about it, that I decided to give it a shot. Am I ever glad that I did! I thought the story was rivoting and I immediately read the next two books in the trilogy. The narration was excellent as the narrator did a great job of helping one picture the character that she was portraying. I would highly recommend this book to everyone, even if this is not the typical kind of book you read. I recommended it to all of my friends.
