    When Muslim fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex, making an already critical oil shortage calamitous, the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands. They plan to seize the Persian Gulf, and more ambitiously, to neutralize NATO. Thus begins Red Storm, an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuver to cloak a crash military build-up.

    Story

    One of the very first "adult" books that I read when I was in my late teens (25 years ago). Listened to it this past week and was really happy to rediscover my old friend. I particularly like the naval combat chapters. You can really feel the tension of the sailors. Prichard is great with his performance. I'm a big fan of his (see all of Rex Stout's Nero Wolf mysteries).

    Story
    (15700)

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    The first 90% of this book is REALLY good. However, when we get to the part about actually saving JFK, it seems a little rushed to me. Classic King on the character development front which gets you really starting to feel for the different players. Well worth a listen!

    Story

    Hannibal Lecter emerges from the nightmare of the Eastern Front, a boy in the snow, mute, with a chain around his neck. He seems utterly alone, but he has brought his demons with him. Hannibal's uncle, a noted painter, finds him in a Soviet orphanage and brings him to France, where Hannibal will live with his uncle and his uncle's beautiful and exotic wife, Lady Murasaki.

    Bev says: "Surprised"
    "Dissertation"
    Overall

    I was interested in learning how Hannibal became the Cannibal, but that's all this book did, convey facts. Hannibal did this, Hannibal did that. There wasn't much in the way of a plot and it certainly wasn't very exciting. And this review is from someone who typically can forgo a less than stellar plot assuming the character development is there. If you're a fan of the previous books, you have to listen, but prepare yourself for a bit of a disapointment.
