    Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria. But the corporate campus is a place of secrets.

    Story

    I normally enjoy Robin Cook's medical thrillers, but this one was a bummer. I was into the plot until it became so ridiculous. I am not into science fiction. I replayed the last 3 minutes thinking that my iPod had malfunction or that my download was corrupted. No such luck. That was the end of the story. After listing for hours with the most minute details given, the end just happened! No explanation, details, etc. Wasted time.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I am not a fan of Steven King normally, but this story sounded interesting. It was a"can't stop listening" selection. King makes time travel sound plausible, and now I look at everyday occurrences and coincidences in an entirely differen way. While listening, I felt like I was watching a movie because the characters were described in such detail.
    I really appreciated all the references to life in the 50's and 60's. King has really done the research. The addition of King's voice at the end explaining research and his feelings about the climate of the times in Dallas, brought everything back to reality.
    One doesn't have to be a science fiction fan to love this novel

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Overall

    This is one of Grisham's best. Besides an exciting story line, one gets an insider's view into political and personal machinations in America's legal system. The storyline is believable, yet incredible at the same time. The frustrations of people trying to save an innocent man and the persistence of two men--one a sleazy lawyer and one a minister who is a stranger to all involved--is riveting.
