    From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

    C. Johnson says: "Standard Archer "class-clash". Stellar narration!!"

    Story

    Now I can't sleep wondering if the characters will reunite. I was so enthralled in the story since the first chapter I just couldn't stop reading. Jeffrey Archer is an AMAZING story teller, and the reader feels like he's right there in the pub, in the ship, in the class, and I absolutely love it to the point of maddening. Bring on the sequel Jeff and lets get answers. Great job from a great writer!

    It's 1809 and the powerful French juggernaut is sweeping across Spain. Lieutenant Sharpe is newly in command of the demoralized, distrustful men of the 95th Rifles. He must lead them to safety - and the only means of escape is a treacherous trek through the enemy-infested mountains of Spain.

    Joe says: "Historical Fiction at it's best."

    Story

    This is by far the low point of the series. Poor story, horrible Spanish accent, and I found myself waiting for the only to start a better book. I'm hoping the next gets better or I think I'll stop the series.

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"

    Story

    Call me crazy, or unappreciative of King's talent, but I just can't get beyond the first two hours. You have to be a King fan to enjoy this one. The story starts way too slow for the average book candy reader. Sorry Stephen, I liked The Shining!

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."

    Story

    This is not your Vince Flynn thriller, but equally engaging for those with a love for world history and business. I recommend this for any MBA who wants a glimpse into a side of leadership not found in HBS cases. He fathered concepts from postal services to hunting preserves and broke the bonds of nobility in favor of performance-based rewards. Loved it. Great job to the researchers and author. Now off to my CIA thrillers...

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    Story

    Its not the most captivating book and the characters took to long to develop. It lacked the exciting aspect of mystical thriller drama and I sadly turned it off half way through and started reading a novel. Maybe next time Erin. Or perhaps its just me and I don't get what you were trying to accomplish. None the less, hats of for getting it published and so much attention at the national level.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Story

    I could not stop listening, and even when I feel asleep at 3am, I went back the next morning and re-listened to what I thought of missed, and became even more enthralled with the story, the characters, and the ending. Without giving too much away, I fell in love with Aria myself, and the dragon ending was ice cream on the cake. Well done Chris, lets get rolling on your new project so the rest of us can stop loosing sleep for another two years. Well done, well done.

    Like many young idealists, Eric Greitens wanted to make a difference. During college and afterward, he traveled to the world's trouble spots, working in refugee camps, serving the sick and the poor on four continents, from Gaza to Croatia to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, among others. Yet he could not prevent violence or save anyone from becoming a refugee; he could only step in afterward and try to ease the damage. So Eric joined the Navy SEALs and became an elite warrior....

    Story

    By far the best SEAL book, head and shoulder's with Lone Survivor. The personal insight into the humanitarian side, war, and the mind of a special forces soldier takes you on a personal journey with the writer across the globe. The book made me want to be better, want to fight for those who can't fight for themselves, and to help returning soldier's continue to fight the mission at home and abroad in new and innovative ways. By far the best read of 2011.

    It's just seven days before Memorial Day, and a spike in CIA intelligence has pointed to a major terrorist attack on the United States. Now it's up to counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp to pull out all the stops. Rapp immediately leaves for Afghanistan, where he leads a special forces unit on a daring commando raid across the border into a remote Pakistani village. Their target: an al-Qaeda stronghold. Rapp and his team soon discover plans for a catastrophic nuclear attack on Washington, DC.

    I've just gone through all of the Mitch Rapp books, and Memorial Day is by far the best, followed by American Assassin.
