    Egypt is struck by a series of terrible plagues that cripple the kingdom, and then the ultimate disaster occurs: the Nile fails. The waters that nourish and sustain the land dry up. Something catastrophic is taking place in the distant and totally unexplored depths of Africa from where the mighty river springs. In desperation, Pharaoh sends for Taita, the only man who might be able to find the source of the Nile and discover the cause of all their woes.

    I am only one hour into the story.. and already I am sorry I bought it. The story may be good but the narration is the pits. I can only listen for short periods of time.. How could they take a good book an excellent writer and let a complete idiot narrate it?

    Carson soon finds that it is. He learns that GeneDyne geneticists are tinkering with a common virus with an eye on the enormous profit to be had from a cure for the flu. Their cure involves permanently altering DNA in humans. What's more, Mount Dragon harbors another secret that puts the world at horrifying risk.

    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.

    Rider Sandman, having fought Napoleon in the French wars, expected to lead the life of an English country gentleman. But now, two years after Waterloo, his family is impoverished, his name is disgraced, and he has been forced to relinquish the woman he loves from her obligation to marry him. Desperate to earn money, he accepts the job of being the government's Investigator: an official who discovers whether petitions for mercy sent by condemned criminals should be granted.

    Jean says: "Gallows Thief"
    "Awesome"
    Overall

    At first I thought Oh No!!!! Bernard has written a lemon but after what seemed to me a slow start it was terrific all the way especially when you decide you know who the killer is and at almost the end you find out whether you are right or not :) Thank you again Mr Cornwell for a well written interesting novel Hopefully he will write a sequel to it

    Rhett Butler's People is the long-awaited novel that parallels the great American novel Gone with the Wind. Twelve years in the making, Rhett Butler's People marks a major and historic cultural event for millions of Gone with the Wind readers, complementing and adding new dimensions to its timeless story.

    "Thank You Mr McCaig"
    Overall

    This book is as good as" Gone with the Wind", tho to be honest I didn't think so at the beginning My only complaint with it is it ended" Like Field of Dreams" it is a story you want to go on and on I hope Mr McCaig will write a sequel Did they rebuild Tara What happens to Taz. Every question seems to lead to another
    This book is well worth reading I enjoyed it more than I can say. Thank you Mr McCaig

    At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.

    Orita says: "Both the book and the reader were just plain great"
    "John Coffey"
    Overall

    Every book I read of Stephen King I think it's the best he's ever done But by far and away the Green mile is the best he's ever done I found myself wanting to beat Percy to death and wanted so badly to help John Coffey The author has made the characters so real you almost feel like you were there and knew these people personally.. Even the murderer "Del" tugged at your heartstrings and who would ever believe I could or would fall in love with a mouse Thank you so much Mr King

    Lisey Debusher Landon lost her husband, Scott, two years ago, after a 25-year marriage of the most profound and sometimes frightening intimacy. Scott was an award-winning, best-selling novelist, and a very complicated man. Early in their relationship, before they married, Lisey had to learn from him about books and blood and "bools". Later, she understood that there was a place Scott went, a place that both terrified and healed him, could eat him alive, or give him the ideas he needed in order to live.

    krista says: "Atypical"
    "I was slow to start but ended up entranced"
    Overall

    Af first Stephen King almost lost me I found it difficult to understand Started over and was completely engrossed by it... I think it is King at his very best I only wished it didn't have to end I could have lived in this book, because as a child I had a place very much like it Hope he will come up with a sequel to it
