    In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first minute to the last.

    Story

    Some parts were predictable, some weren't. There were a couple of nice twists and turns and although you will have it mostly figured out by the end, you won't see the complete twist coming.
    There's also a couple of nice sub-plots going on, an interesting array of characters and the narrator does a very good job with the different accents involved.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Story

    This book is more like two novellas stuffed in a single book with a common theme between them. There are two distinct stories here that do get tied together towards the end, but not to any great satisfaction.
    I enjoyed the stories and Stefan Rudnicki does his usual outstanding job narrating them. There are a couple of major plot holes that seem to get glossed over and the main characters seem to be insistent on taking the more difficult course of action when there appears to be an easier, more effective way to accomplish their task. Overall, a very good book with a couple of major problems that keep it from being a 5-star listen for me.

    Russell Walker retreats from the shock of his wife's death by becoming a hermit in the woods of British Columbia. There he finds himself thrust into a precarious role as intermediary between a telepath called Smelly, so sensitive he can't stand to be near most people, and Constable Hilda, a skeptical police officer who needs Smelly's insight to track down a monstrous serial killer.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book and was sorry when it ended. Unlike a couple of reviewers here, I thought Spider did a wonderful job narrating his own story. After all, who knows the characters better than the person who wrote them? The pacing was fast, the story was intense, and while mostly one dimensional, the characters were wonderfully engaging. The story does wrap itself up very quickly, but is ultimately very satisfying in the end.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    This is one of the few audiobooks that had me looking forward to my commute home at night and not minding the traffic delays. A great and entertaining story.

    At the novel's center: Lucy Kincheloe, an astronaut married to an astronaut, the loving mother of two young children, with a fierce ambition to excel in the space program. Her husband, Brian, a rigorous man whose dreams of glory have been blighted by two star-crossed missions. And Walt Womack, the steady, unflappable leader of the training team that prepares Lucy for her first shuttle flight.

    "Disappointing on many levels..."
    Overall

    I love a good-fi story, this isn't it.
    I also love a good action story. Again, this isn't it.
    I am not a big fan of sappy romance stories with shallow side relationships (that of Walt and his 'best' friend).
    For me, this bordered on being offensive, it stradles the line between condoning adultery and condemning it. All of the characters seem like shallow stereotypes and the dialogue is dreadful.

    My wife loves to watch "Lifetime" movies and I hate to admit I've sat through one or two with her. The best thing I can say about this book is that it would make a wonderful "Lifetime" movie. Or about as wonderful as a "Lifetime" movie ever is. So... if you enjoy "Lifetime" movies, you will, more than likely, enjoy this book.

    Another plus is the narrator, he did a wonderful job.

    If the planet Krypton had a gravitational field strong enough to account for Superman's amazing strength, would it be possible to launch a rocket ship from the planet's surface? Could evolution actually produce X-Men? The Science of Superheroes takes a lighthearted but clearheaded look at the real science behind some of the greatest superhero comic books of all time.

    Shaquille says: "To much irrelvent information"
    "yawn"
    Overall

    This book is a huge yawn. I felt like I was sitting in a science class the entire time I was listening to it. It would invariably wander off topic to some inane science point that had very little relevance to the hero being discussed. And it would wander for so long that I actually forgot a couple of times what hero and power they were talking about. From the main reviews I expected something witty and clever, instead I got dull and dry.
