    There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother.

    What would have made Fallen better?

    Story has way too many characters to keep all the names straight. Amanda is an awful woman! I wouldn't work for her for two seconds. This is my first Karin Slaughter book, and it will probably be my last. I'm not even half way through it and I can't wait for the end. Since I paid for it I will finish it but it's a real struggle. I wasn't impressed with the narration either, which may have something to do with the overall lack of interest.

  • Edge of Eternity: The Century Trilogy, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (36 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Ken Follett

    Throughout these books, Follett has followed the fortunes of five intertwined families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they make their way through the twentieth century. Now they come to one of the most tumultuous eras of all: the enormous social, political, and economic turmoil of the 1960s through the 1980s, from civil rights, assassinations, mass political movements and Vietnam to the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, presidential impeachment, revolution - and rock and roll.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Ken Follett again?

    NO!


    What three words best describe John Lee’s voice?

    Left-wing Liberal


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this series, so I waited, not so patiently for the release of the final installment. If I had read the reviews first I still would have listened just to find out what happened to the characters I liked so much...BUT...this one is so blatantly full of the authors liberal political view that it was very hard to finish. Anyone in the book that was conservative or Republican was an evil, no good, lying, murderous scoundrel and all world issues were solved by Democrats in spite of and with no help from Republicans. If I want to get mad over politics, I'll watch the news!

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Where does The Kitchen House rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The only book I've listened to and immediately upon finishing it, I started over. I was suprised at what I had missed the first time through. I enjoyed it as much the second time as I did the first.


    Have you listened to any of Orlagh Cassidy and Bahni Turpin ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
