    It's time to take back our country. Barack Obama and the Democrats are: Canceling the war on terror... and replacing it with a war on prosperity. Taking away your health care options... and replacing them with government rationing. Taking control of the banks, Detroit, and your money... and converting them all into government assets. We're not just heading for disaster - it's already here!

    "OK, but a bit over done."
    Overall

    I did not know who Dick Morris was before selecting this book. The book is a little overdone. I do not think the end is near. Good data, not really any new advice, too much hype. No new action items or advice. More like a "2 minute hate" from 1984. A little too much www.dickmorris.com for me but maybe that is his style. Listen to the book and think for yourself.

    Wool introduced the silo and its inhabitants. Shift told the story of their making. Dust will chronicle their undoing. Welcome to the underground.

    In 2007, the Center for Automation in Nanobiotech (CAN) outlined the hardware and software platform that would one day allow robots smaller than human cells to make medical diagnoses, conduct repairs, and even self-propagate. In the same year, a simple pill, it had been discovered, could wipe out the memory of any traumatic event. At almost the same moment in humanity's broad history, mankind had discovered the means for bringing about its utter downfall - and the ability to forget it ever happened.

    I loved the book. Cleared up a bunch of questions from Wool. If you liked Wool you will love this book.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    What a great book. Somewhat dated, but if you overlook that it is as relevant today as ever. Do yourself a favor and give this story a chance.

    In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs - including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Nope, not one of SK's best works. I kept waiting on the story to start, I thought he was just building up to something. Halfway through the book I realized this was the story.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen King? Why or why not?

    Oh heck yes, can't wait for the next book. This is book is a flop.


    What about David Morse’s performance did you like?

    Good job for what he had to work with (as far as story).


    Was Revival worth the listening time?

    Didn't think so at the end.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.
