    Imagine a Britain stripped of democracy, a world of the not-too-distant future in which freedom has been surrendered willingly to a totalitarian regime which rose to power by exploiting the people's worst fears and most damning weaknesses.

    John says: "Visceral Vindictive Vicarious Vicissitudes?"
    "Most Excellent!!!"
    Overall

    This story spoke to my soul. In this time of governments lying to their people about everything possible, this story gives hope to the common man. While it is still fiction and a illustrated novel (comic book)story at that, it is still a great story. If you didn't see the movie, then the book is a great way to get the total experience. While the movie is also excellent, the book does have a little more than the movie.

    The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out in The Shadow Rising, book four of the Wheel of Time, as The Shadow is rising to cover humankind. In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve. Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn.

    The evil women of the white tower are causing trouble, the novices are trying to capture them, Perin goes home to fight the White Coats, and other evil creatures. Matt is going to find his true love, but not where anyone expects her to be.
    In case you can't tell yet, I am a fan.

    The Wheel of Time turns and ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the age that gave it birth returns again. For centuries, gleemen have told the tales of The Great Hunt of the Horn. So many tales about each of the Hunters, and so many Hunters to tell of. Now, the Horn itself is found: the Horn of Valere long thought only legend, the Horn which will raise the dead heroes of the ages.

    Tony Deleeuw says: "Great Series, Great Readers"
    "Deeper penetration"
    Overall

    The prophesy are exposed, explained, and legend comes to life. Rand fulfills the expectations without knowing he will, Matt calls the long dead heroes, Perin finds his Falcon.

    Each of the three main characters begin to come into what they each must become. The three women move forward into the one power.
    Robert Jordan's passion continues, he moves the characters like stones on the board. :)

    When their village is attacked by trollocs, monsters thought to be only legends, three young men, Rand, Matt, and Perrin, flee in the company of the Lady Moiraine, a sinister visitor of unsuspected powers. Thus begins an epic adventure set in a world of wonders and horror, where what was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    Greg says: "This Series Rocks"
    "Great start"
    Overall

    This is the first book of 12 (13 if you count the prequel). As most first books, this introduces all of the main characters, concepts, and the basic quest. Still this was well written, the character development was progressive allowing the reader to adapt and adjust to the changes as the characters evolve as they must to become what they must be to fulfill the quest.

    Craig Johnson's mystery stories have earned him an esteemed position in the pantheon of contemporary crime novelists. In this fourth installment, Longmire is called to investigate a dead Vietnamese girl found along the Wyoming highway.

    Amazon Customer says: "The best writer and the best reader get together"
    "Powerful rememorances"
    Overall

    The Longmire novels all have strong spirit ties to American Indian cultures. This story ties Walt to his memories of Vietnam which fills in lots of background for the characters history.
    As a Vietnam vet the story was written with assistance from someone who was there. A moving story told as only Craig Johnson can.

    While the author shamelessly promotes his own website, and other products in the audio book, there are some very good ideas, and will leave you with a more positive attitude.

    This is a good book, and the basic principals are still valid, but the basics are so far out-of-date, they are almost not worth bothering with anymore.

    Charles Eastman is unique among Indian writers, whether storytellers or oral historians. He was raised traditionally, as a Woodland Sioux, by his grandmother, from 1858 to 1874, until he was 15. He thus gained a thorough first-hand knowledge of the lifeways, language, culture, and oral history. His father (thought to have been hanged at Mankato, Minnesota) reappeared and insisted he receive the white man's education.

    reggie p says: "Indian version of Aesop's fables"
    "A unique collection of Native American Stories"
    Overall

    Mr. Eastman was about 16 years old when he was taken from his life with his Grandmother. He was forced to attend white Christen school, and eventually became a medical doctor. A recent movie ('Bury My Heart At Wounded Knew') was the story of his early life.
    The part not shown in the movie was he and his wife left the US and lived in England for most of the rest of their lives. They wrote this collection of stories when he realized there were no other collections being published. He appears to be the only native to have remembered the stories from a time before the whites, and was able to write them down in English and get them published. The real value in these stories is they are the closest thing to the original left to us today, anything else is tainted by white influence.

    When an elderly local woman is found poisoned, Sheriff Walt Longmire begins an investigation that soon has him ensnared in a deadly spider's web. From Craig Johnson, author of the acclaimed novel The Cold Dish, comes this enthralling Sheriff Longmire mystery. With a distinctive literary flair, Johnson leads us into the wide open space of Absaroka County, Wyoming.

    Laura Harley says: "What a wonderful find!"
    "Another good story"
    Overall

    This is the first author I have ever read that follows one story with another so closely within the fictional time period.
    Most authors are either vague about the time of the event in the story, or they space the stories months or years apart.
    This story is only about two to three weeks after the first book.
    The story is very good, although it appears a pattern is emerging, the twist and turns are still pretty fresh.
    The story covers half a century, so there is lots of depth.
    Enjoy!

    Navy pilot turned submarine officer Jerry Mitchell is now the navigator aboard USS Seawolf. On a reconnaissance mission deep in the Barents Sea, Mitchell and his crew prepare to watch the Russian navy as it trains for battle. Although they are outside Russia's territorial waters, the U.S. boat is ambushed by Russia's newest attack submarine, Severodvinsk. Its aggressive new captain, Aleksey Petrov, harasses the American intruder with dangerously fast, insanely close passes.

    Don says: "Pretty goo"
    "Pretty goo"
    Overall

    As a retired Navy man with a more than usual understanding of both US and Russian submarines, I found this book to be what we always wished would have happened, but never did.
    We should have helped each other, many times, instead of doing our level best to kill each other and succeeding many times.
    Other than a few mistakes between Army/Air Force terms and Navy terms, the author did an excellent job. It is obvious he was never in the Navy, or if he was, he must have served in another branch after the Navy and forgot the terminology used by the Navy, because he occasionally used non-Navy terms for things.
    I was very impressed by the afterword where he explained where he obtained all the names used int he book.
    I thank him for the honors he bestowed.
