I can not imagine anyone not loving this book. It's a great science fiction novel, that even this fantasy romance reader thoroughly enjoyed. It's not a romance novel, although there are deep romantic emotions involved. It's a story of peoples survival in a mundane world. Most take their life as it has been dealt, while the few of this story, start to question their world as they know it. Living within the silo is a dangerous place to have questions, as the curious do not survive.
It's a very unpredictable read, that keeps you totally engrossed until you are finished. The characters are compelling, and you feel you're with them, living in their shoes. I will definitely go with more from this author. Thanks Hugh, for having a great imagination, and being able to put it on paper so well.
R rated or X rated, take your pick. This book is not a YA werewolf romance. It's hard core sex, but has it's place in this love story of two very strong alpha wolves. What I like about Taryn, is that she was a strong character, so none of that whiny female always doing the wrong thing and misinterpreting everything going on around her. This female is bold, hardened from her upbringing, but not without her problems. Trey tends to easily go feral from his unfortunate upbringing, until Taryn calms him and his wolf. Not a bad story as the couple form an alliance with their own personal motives, that we all know will eventually end with true love.
I have read several McCarthy books and have loved them. However, this one did little for me. I kept wanting to just quit and listen to something else, but was interested in "The Kid" enough to keep going. I wish I would have stopped half way through.
I'm like some of the other listeners, thinking that if I had read it rather than try to listen, I might have gotten more from the story. I tended to let my mind wander away and ended up lost at points. The narrator did an excellent job, I think it's more in the writing style that made this story hard to follow.
Kept me in stitches, as usual. Another madcap zany tale from Carl Hiaasen brought to life superbly by George Wilson. There's no way to tell all the antics in this story, other than there's been a major hurricane in Florida, and everyone is either suffering from the effects or out to make a quick buck from residents suffering. Somehow Carl Hiaasen makes tragedy humorous with everyone getting their just due in the end. A favorite character of mine is back in this tale, Skink (the ex-governor) with the help of Trooper Jim straighten out the criminals and help to play match maker in the process. If you enjoy 'off the wall' humor, then give this one a listen.
This is turning out to be a great series to follow. I hope she keeps up the good work. This book deals with a missing person that Cormoran is hired to find, of course he's found dead very early, which puts Cormoran's client on the suspect list.
This book picks up where the first one left off, with Cormoran dealing with his own engagement breakup and Charlotte's quick engagement to another man, along with his personal struggles with his own abuse of his leg. Robin is engaged to Matthew, and he doesn't like Cormoran, along with Cormoran not understanding Robin's pursuit to be a private eye.
We see all the personal things going on in the middle of solving the murder case, and what a complex list of suspects we have. All authors or publishers with their own set of little eccentricities that delights the listener as the story unfolds. The book keeps you wondering til the very end, and the narrator couldn't be better.
Not since Outlander have I enjoyed this series so much. This novel was right back to the roots of Jamie and Claire's love. A deeply romantic novel that makes you sigh, chuckle, and rejoice, bringing all the key characters together helping one another throughout their individual hardships. A few old characters, thought to be lost make cameo appearances here and there, for a fun and unique spin in the story.
As usual, this is a long one that could have been shortened a bit by leaving out some boring surgery and filler in the last part of the novel, that just didn't seem to have much relevance. Luckily though, the majority of the novel dealt with character development making the 45 hours fly by, and not leaving us with a dozen chliffhangers like the previous book. A couple of threads are left dangling for the next installment, but for the most part we did see a conclusion to this novel, which I will probably listen to again just for the mere pleasure of it.
I really like the story this author has to tell, but don't know that I'll continue with the series. This story starts out with an open-shut case for Jackson, that ends up being a 'who Really done it?'. You think you have things figured out, but she tends to drop a rather unknown character in the mix at the end, which I'm not complaining about. I don't enjoy always knowing the ending in advance, which happens quite often.
What I don't like about these books is the way the author is constantly preaching her beliefs, to us, the readers. In this story the author sets out to clear up everyone's misconceptions about homosexuals, as well as what natural remedy to take as a sleep aid, and how grilling meat is bad for you. It's just TOO much at times, and tends to ruin the whole book for me. It's a shame because I really thought the murder mystery was a good one.
Joe's out to stop the human race from being annihilated, but first he has to discover that bit of information. The story seems to be a real puzzle looking for the bad guys and putting an end to their plans. Joe and his team are up against two groups of mad scientists in to genetic engineering, one for profit and perverse pleasure, the other to create the master race ending the rest of the races. It's a fast paced action thriller packed with intriguing characters sure to keep your interest.
A very English book, so I had to accustom myself to the wording, in which the narrator did a great job of delivering all the appropriate punch lines.
It's about a new graduate from his police internship, that finds himself paired with the wizard of the squad, soon to learn that magic really exists. Peter Grant is now the newest apprentice helping to solve a rash of murders leaving it's victims faceless.
In his new line of work he meets some really interesting characters guaranteed to give the reader a chuckle at times, when they're behaving themselves.
Dresden fans will most likely also like this story.
This series is on the order of the Midnight Breed and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. We have a group of good dragon warriors fighting against the other group of bad dragon warriors out to take over the world and kill all the humans. Of course along the way, the good dragons find the loves of their lives converting them to dragon ways, becoming part of the dragon commune. It all sounds cliche, which it is, but I enjoy a series like this now and then just for the fantasy, and a break from my usual crime thrillers. This being the second of the series, we are introduced to a couple new characters and the old ones are becoming familiar urging me to read the next installment to see if eventually good will triumph over evil.
What a surprise this story was, as I pulled it from the sale rack. It's about an ordinary man out on a hunting trip with his nine year old becoming the prey to a group of low lifes, out for some deadly fun. The scariest thing about this tale, is that it could very easily happen as hunters dig themselves deep in the woods of unknown areas, not knowing just what else lurks around in the countryside. Jake's survival skills are put to a test. His love for his daughter and to protect the innocent shine through, to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story has some memorable characters whose lives are changed in this accounting of one terrifying night.
