    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    This was so good, I plan on listening to it at least several more times so as to absorb all the facts.

  • Life on a Little Known Planet: A Biologist's View of Insects and their World

    Story

    This classic book is natural history at its best. The world of insects is Howard Evans' "little-known planet," the realm of the cockroach and the cricket, the wasp and the bedbug. With the precision and authority of a distinguished biologist, and the wit and grace of an accomplished writer, Howard Evans muses on the uniqueness of dragonflies, the romantic impulses of butterflies, the musicianship of crickets, and the mysteries of the firefly.

    Anne says: "Some of my favorite bug groups!"
    "disappointed"
    Overall

    The first 1/2 of this book was very interesting. I listened and learned many things about insects. The 2nd half was was a sneak attack to promote his own environmental agenda- booooring!

    Story

    In a departure from the legal thriller genre, John Grisham's latest novel draws inspiration from his own rural childhood in Arkansas. Listen and enjoy this moving tale about a 7-year-old boy and the dose of reality that comes, one autumn during the harvest, to take away his innocence. Also available abridged.

    Janelle Carter says: "Bittersweet way of life of time past...."
    "Very Different"
    Overall

    This novel is very different from the previous Grisham titles that I have read. I did not think I was enjoying the book, but I found that I was eager to get back to it when ever possible. Raised in the south, I could very much identify with the characters and how they approached the trials of their lives. The ending very much leaves the door open for a sequel. If a sequel does come along, I will read it.
