    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    This was a great book!!! Enough suspense, enough action, really good character development....I wish I could see this charaters in another boook.
    If you like Stephen King or a book surrounded by a location , like a building in this case, you'll like this.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Story

    Loved the book, but wish I had stopped reading after main plot was over. Once the screen writer starting blogging, I did care for it. But the first part of the story which is the majority of the book is very good.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story

    It's still Grisham, so the writing is very good, but the story lacked action or suspense.
    There was a long slow middle that really didn't seem to have a lot to do with the story.
    Then when we get answers, they seem to hurry though them.
    Would not recommend to read, but okay to listen to.

    Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost. There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss - maybe just because his family is broken. When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

    I tried to give this a chance, but I wanted to know more about the Dome, and less about the real world....slow moving and the story was based on a small situation instead of the bigger issues. Not another "Hunger Games".

    Liked the characters and the tension; Loved the corporate law issues as well as the criminal law; As good a read as a Grisham novel.

    Hoped it was similiar to the movie....it's nothing like it.
    Too much narrative...Too much talking to himself.....Not enough plot.
    Set back around 1975...so seemed out of date.

    Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job.

    High tech corporate espionage at its best. The narrator is the best with subtle changes in his voice so you know who’s talking without being distracted. The high stakes of corporate espionage along with a rages to riches story was a great combo.
