    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Overall

    I agree with the earlier comments about the very poor audio quality of this one - not just the reader and his 'voices' confusion, but the overall audio quality left much to be desired - despite downloading format 4.

    Whilst the story line was reasonable if not riveting, it was spoilt by the audio constraints. The only positive thing was that I had to replay so much of it to actually understand what was being said, that it passed even more tedious hours in countless planes and airports!!

    A warm day in Dublin, a crowded street corner. Suddenly, a car-bomb explodes, killing and injuring scores of innocent people.From the second-floor window of a building across the street, a visiting American watches, helpless, as his beloved wife and children are sacrificed in the heat and fire of someone else's cause.

    DJM says: "Good story once through"
    "Confounded"
    Overall

    The storyline is OK but suffers from the confusion and stop/start noted by other reviewers. The real whammy however is Mr Brick's Irish accent. It is terrible and can only be equated with Owen Meanie's voice. Terrible - please Scott, restrict yourself to narrating in 'American'!!!

    A brilliant meteor lights up the Maine coast and two young women borrow a boat and set out for a distant island to find the impact crater. A scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. He is found decapitated, the data missing.High resolution NASA images reveal an unnatural feature hidden in the depths of a crater on Mars and it appears to have been activated. Sixty hours and counting.

    Overall

    I was sadly disappointed with this - the basic storyline was good but completely ruined by deeds of daring-do better suited to a 'Biggles' story for boys. The reader added to this let-down by treating us to a breathless rendition that was little short of farcical - overkill indeed.

    Find something better to listen to than this pathetic bodice ripper of a so called thriller.

  • World Without End

    Story

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "45 hours of total enjoyment"
    Overall

    The story is great, the reader magnificent and the setting enthralling. Its one of those rare examples where everything melds together beautifully. Heartily recommended.

  • Intensity: A Novel

    Story
    (214)

    Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

    Connie says: "One of the best Koontz Books!"
    "Gathering Momentum"
    Overall

    This is one of those listens that improves as familiarity progresses. To begin with I found the whole thing a bit slow with background descriptions leaning towards the excessive, but once things get moving you will soon be carried along in the rush. The narrator puts a lot of effort into the presentation and generally succeeeds very well.
    Enjoyed it.

    The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere.

    Roger Smith says: "Very Good"
    "Google Gushing"
    Overall

    Whilst I enjoyed the book and generally agree with comments made by other reviewers, I also felt that the exposition came over as somewhat 'twee' and 'hyper'. I simply cannot believe that everything about Google and its development is so extraordinary and everyone concerned is so 'excited' about it all the time. A more balanced presentation would have included a bit more of the down side.

    On balance a good listen but too sweet for my taste.
