    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Better than the first book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the first book but found the that the extensive detail on financial matters distracting. Reading this book, I almost feel that the first one was just laying the ground work for this. It is much more character driven and therefore much more interesting.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Gaiman’s not just an award-winning author, but a narrator who earns rave reviews – and fields requests from other authors to perform their books, too! Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead....

    Guillermo says: "Masterful Fantasy for the Jaded Heart"
    "Wonderful listen"
    Overall

    Just finished listening to this with my 13-year old daughter and we both loved it. Neil Gaimen is a great narrator as well as writer. The voices of the evil character's in particular were chilling.
    It does start out with a murder - but while disturbing - Neil Gaimen seems to be able to walk a fine line between making something real and storybook like at the same time. Highly recommended.

    Alex Blumberg and NPR's Adam Davidson - the two guys who reported our "Giant Pool of Money" episode - are back. They'll explain what happened this week, including what regulators could've done to prevent this financial crisis from happening in the first place. To cover the daily ins and outs, Alex and Adam (with a few colleagues at NPR News) are also doing a free daily Planet Money podcast and blog.

    Overall

    This was excellent. Really helped understand what everyone was so frightened by that they had to rush out and approve a $700 billion rescue plan

    Nathaniel is eleven-years-old and a magician's apprentice, learning the traditional art of magic. All is well until he has a life-changing encounter with Simon Lovelace, a magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. When Lovelace brutally humiliates Nathaniel in public, Nathaniel decides to speed up his education, teaching himself spells far beyond his years. With revenge on his mind, he masters one of the toughest spells of all and summons Bartimaeus, a five-thousand-year-old djinni, to assist him.

    Randy says: "Terrific Trilogy"
    "The Amulet of Samarkand"
    Overall

    I had read this book previously and enjoyed it tremendously - and when considering whether to join audible.com - I listened to a sample - and was immediately hooked. The reader is excellent and captures Bartimaeus to a tee. I decided to sign up just on the ability to get this audio book. Both this and its sequel, "The Golem's Eye" are well done and for anyone who is wondering what to read till the next Harry Potter book comes out - look no further.
