    Locating Alexander the Great's final resting place, unknown to this day, remains a tantalizing goal for archaeologists and treasure hunters - as well as a cunning despot with the single-minded desire to surpass Alexander as history's ultimate conqueror. Cotton Malone, former U.S. Justice Department agent turned rare-book dealer, learns from his friend, Cassiopeia Vitt, that a suspicious blaze was part of a campaign of arson masking a diabolical plan to find Alexander's grave - and a miraculous serum.

    This book wasn't a struggle to finish and had an interesting premise. It was not a book that I thought about for a week afterwards, but I enjoyed it while it lasted.

    The title character from ABC's hit television series Castle kicks off his new series of books featuring tough and sexy New York police detective Nikki Heat with a bang.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Heat Wave to be better than the print version?

    I don't read books, so I'm not one to ask.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Thinking of it in terms of the relationship of Castle and Becket on the TV show. Then a lot of the bravado of the character seems more endearing.

    This is the extraordinary story of John Carter, who returns to the Red Planet in search of his beloved, Dejah Thoris. John lands in the Valley Dor, which is populated by vicious plant men, and discovers the Lost Sea of Korus, guarded by the great white apes and horrifying lions of Barsoom. It is here that he finds the princess Thuvia, who is a captive of the Holy Therns, high priests who eat only human flesh slain by their plant men.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was ok. It felt very dated.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs? Why or why not?

    I'm not in a rush. He didn't do much with the character of John Carter in this book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I didn't particularly like his voice.


    Did The Gods of Mars inspire you to do anything?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the movie and the movie novelization was good. But the style of these books is very out of date and it makes the characters feel a bit wooden.

    In the 10 years since his classic Kitchen Confidential first alerted us to the idiosyncrasies and lurking perils of eating out, much has changed for the subculture of chefs and cooks, for the restaurant business and for Anthony Bourdain. Medium Raw explores those changes, tracking Bourdain's strange and unexpected voyage from journeyman cook to globe-traveling professional eater and drinker, and even to fatherhood. Bourdain takes no prisoners as he dissects what he's seen.

    Andy says: "entertaining but not as good as kitchen conf."
    "Genius or blowhard, Anthony Bourdain has charisma"

    Story
    Would you listen to Medium Raw again? Why?

    I don't think. It's not really deep in plot, just good stories.


    Have you listened to any of Anthony Bourdain???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I'd say it's 90% as good as his first one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked when he said how all the characters are doing today.


    Any additional comments?

    I think you'll like his show better if you've heard the books because they make him seem more sympathetic and less cranky/egotistical. He's always witty and insightful.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Oberon.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Chronicals of Oberon and his pet Druid.


    Any additional comments?

    extremely similar in tone to the Dresden books, but not as melancholy.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Deborah says: "Do They Give Awards For "Best Reader"?"
    "fun"
    Overall

    This book had high expectations to meet because of how much I liked A Dirty Job. At first I was VERY disappointed that Fisher Stevens wasn't the narrator but it soon became clear that the book was in good hands. It's a fun story and it goes fast. Not quite as good as his last book, but still wonderful.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    I finished listening to this in 4 days. Fisher Stevens is hands down, the BEST narrator I've heard. I was never confused as to who the characters were and they had a lot of life to them. The story will have you in stitches but it has a satisfying arc that carries over till the great ending. Buy this audiobook.
