    Four young women have been found murdered—tortured and strangled in their own beds—all victims of the same brilliant monster. Using a skilled hand and the latest technology in forensic medicine, Kay Scarpetta begins the process of gathering the microscopic clues the latest battered body has to give.

    An exciting new tale set in the world of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials saga. Lyra's Oxford opens in the thrilling comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird (a witch's daemon, on its own) tumbles out of the sky. It is Ragi, daemon of Yelena Pazhets.

    Love the original series but seriously... ten dollars for a 45 minute book? Where was the happy ending?

    Ye gods the narration!

    Sometimes it's awesome when the author narrates their books... and sometimes there's a reason they're writers and not voice talent.

    Story

    This book was so bad I was ready to give up on it... until the floating legless messianic evil supra-genius piped in "rock and roll" which turned out to be Nickelback.

    Boom!

    Just went from a confusing mess of fiction where everyone seems to carry knockout gas to a train wreck I couldn't look away from.

    It was a sore struggle to reach the end of the book… but like Jack, I used the powers of the angel of Death which lies (somehow) nestled inside me to endure the characters comprised solely of good or entirely of evil and a meandering narrative that reads more like a 12 year olds diary than a piece of fiction.

    Don’t get me wrong, there’s probably a demographic for this book and if you’re between the ages of 11 and 16 you can safely ignore the review… for anyone else, think twice.

    At last, one of the world’s greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it. To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem’s provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

    It's not much of a book... and not much happens in the book. it's a bit of a teaser which leads you to the next in the series. a bit of a scam.
