    Alma Boyd Takesue is a National Park Service biologist who is spearheading the efforts to save the Channel Islands’ endangered native creatures from invasive species like rats and feral pigs, which, in her view, must be eliminated. Her antagonist, Dave LaJoy, is a dreadlocked local businessman who, along with his lover, the folksinger Anise Reed, is fiercely opposed to the killing of any species whatsoever and will go to any lengths to subvert the plans of Alma and her colleagues.

    "Really irritating"
    Overall

    The readers voice and over dramatization was really annoying. The story was rambling, looping and so filled with pointless details, descriptions and clichés that I was pulling my hair out. One poorly executed social statement after another. A disappointment for someone deeply interested in the topic at hand.

    The Third Plate is chef Dan Barber’s extraordinary vision for a new future of American eating. After more than a decade spent investigating farming communities around the world in pursuit of singular flavor, Barber finally concluded that - for the sake of our food, our health, and the future of the land - America’s cuisine required a radical transformation.

    It gets a little long winded from time to time if you're not a farmer or a gardener or a cook but it's well worth the listen. If you care at all about food and or the environment, and the future on a overpopulated planet then this is an upbeat view of how to move forward without sacrificing quality of life!

    Something haunts the woods of Olympic National Park, a nightmare in hiding. Its existence has been kept secret by a conspiracy that stretches back to President Thomas Jefferson and the Lewis & Clark expedition. The truth that we have not been alone on this Earth would have forever been lost except that some species just won't die.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Eric Penz and/or Sean Schroeder?

    I'd consider another book from the author, he had a cool idea and made something far fetched believable. His writing can be repetitious but it's a good made-for-movie yarn. The narrator was pretty bad though. He really tried with accents but failed to make it interesting.

    The largest known meteorite has been discovered, entombed in the earth for millions of years on a frigid, desolate island off the southern tip of Chile. At four thousand tons, this treasure seems impossible to move. New York billionaire Palmer Lloyd is determined to have this incredible find for his new museum. Stocking a cargo ship with the finest scientists and engineers, he builds a flawless expedition. But from the first approach to the meteorite, people begin to die....

    Lyn says: "Wonderful, Well researched, Page Turner"
    "Good story"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the storyline but the reader is so dramatic at meaningless times its like crying wolf, I'm all tapped out on suspense by the time its called for.
