    A body is found at an ATM, the apparent victim a of heart attack. Then two teenage girls are arrested for the brutal murder of a cab driver. The girls confess to the crime, showing no remorse whatsoever. Two open-and-shut cases. At first these two incidents seem to have nothing in common, but as Wallander delves deeper into the mystery of why the girls murdered the cab driver, he begins to unravel a plot much more complicated than he initially suspected.

    Story

    Mankell grossly failed to impress. The story falls flat. The overall plot dull. A real struggle to get from beginning to end.

    Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

    Story

    Dr. Brown should stick to being a researcher and leave the writing to experts. This book only makes you want to scream out loud for having listen to it in the first place. This is book is braggadocios, self aggrandizing drivel with smattering of advice. The Gift of Imperfection is imperfect. Dreadful. Absolutely terrible.

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    Story

    Carl Hiaasen is consistent as usual. He knocked it out of the park again. He has such a grasp of the Floridian twilight zone mentality. Surely, as an outsider this may seem weird, but as a Floridian...this depiction is the norm. Funny from beginning to end. It certainly keeps your attention, and kudos to narrator Arte Johnson. He is very pleasant to listen to.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    This book is filled with dynamic characters that keep the story moving along beautifully, and is filled with intriguing plots to keep you on edge. Well written, fabulous storyline, true escapism at its best.

    Story

    On February 12, 1809, Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury. His theory of Natural Selection, as detailed in The Origin of Species, is one of the most debated in history. Darwin's Radio puts Natural Selection on trial, examining how the discovery of concealed remains in a mass grave in Russia forced top scientists to question everything they believed about human origins.

    Robert says: "Far too abridged."
    "Provocative"
    Overall

    Greg Bear has invoked his genius once again by creating this wonderful thought provoking masterpiece. It confronts you directly, and forces you to consider the possibilities. It makes you question real from fiction. You find yourself asking what if. I was thoroughly entertained and mentally challenged as well. This is why I enjoyed it so much, because its topic was both enticing and riveting. Masterfully orchestrated, griping you all the way to the end.
