    Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, "utterly irresistible."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I had heard other folks talk about Fannie Flagg books so, I gave it a try but it just wasn't what I expected.

    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Dick Hill?

    Possibly


    Has The Last Jihad turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What aspect of Dick Hill’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing, I like Dick Hill. I think it would've been better to have had multiple narrators.


    Did The Last Jihad inspire you to do anything?

    No

    Hidden deep beneath Manhattan lies a warren of tunnels, sewers, and galleries, mostly forgotten by those who walk the streets above. There lies the ultimate secret of the Museum Beast. When two grotesquely deformed skeletons are found deep in the mud off the Manhattan shoreline, museum curator Margo Green is called in to aid the investigation.

    Anastasia says: "Should have made this one into a movie..."
    "I enjoyed it!"

    Would you be willing to try another book from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child ? Why or why not?

    Yes. I am hoping though that the next book will not be about the same scenario...

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    An electromagnetic pulse flashes across the sky, destroying every electronic device and killing billions. Alex hiked into the woods to say good-bye to her dead parents and her personal demons. Now desperate to find out what happened after the pulse crushes her to the ground, Alex meets up with Tom, a young soldier, and Ellie, a girl whose grandfather was killed by the EMP. For this improvised family and the others who are spared, it's now a question of who can be trusted and who is no longer human.

    Aser Tolentino says: "Another Readable Story About the End of the World"

    The cliff hanger ending!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Overly dramatic.


    Do you think Ashes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, to resolve the ending
