    Bob Dylan's Chronicles: Volume One explores the critical junctions in his life and career. Through Dylan's eyes and open mind, we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan's New York is a magical city of possibilities: smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough.

    Overall

    It's a warm summer's day in the interlude between summer school and fall quarter in the late 60's. We're all on the front porch of the adobe looking out over the valley. The big event of the day is that eventually the train will ramble by the back fence. The music is Dylan. Some say that if you can remember the 60s, you weren't there. I say that if you can't remember the words to your favorite Dylan tune, you weren't there.

    There is a reason that Dylan is considered the poet laureate of the Twentieth Century. And now he's back. Add to that the amazing reading by Sean Penn. Occaisonally you hear in his voice the sing-song verse of Dylan's early work. Occaisonally Penn sounds just like him.

    A definite read if you were there (and maybe styill are).

    When an attack leaves one of the members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before he hurts anyone else. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department try to stop a series of kidnappings: children and their nannies are being plucked off the streets.

    David says: "disappointing at best"

    Overall

    Chapter 1: No suspense
    Chapter 2: A new Chapter every Sentance
    Chapter 136: Honestly folks! Compared to the first five in this series, this one was a real yawner. ITS NOT WORTH IT.

    At the end of a long day battling street traffic, bike messenger Jace Damon has one last drop to make. But en route to delivering a package for one of L.A.'s sleaziest defense attorneys, he's nearly run down by a car, chased through back alleys, and shot at. Only the instincts acquired while growing up on the streets of L.A. allow him to escape with his life, and with the package someone wants badly enough to kill for.

    Bethany says: "An entertaining read"
    "Can't put it down"
    Overall

    This was one of those books that make you not want to stop. I enjoyed every aspect of the book. The plot development, the characters. I highly recommend it.

    Reba Lafferty was a daughter of privilege, the only child of an adoring father. Over the years, he quietly settled her many scrapes with the law, but he wasn't there for her when she was convicted of embezzlement and sent to the California Institute for Women. Now, at 32, she is about to be paroled, having served 22 months of a four-year sentence. Nord Lafferty wants to be sure she stays straight, stays at home and away from the drugs, the booze, the gamblers.

    Bill says: "Kinsey in Love?"
    "R is for Romance"
    Overall

    I've listened to the first part and am so far underwhelmed. The plot development is SO slow as to be embarrassing. It's almost as though Grafton has become a romance novelist. Without giving away what plot there is, you will have to find the idea of embezzlement from a CPA's point of view exciting to believe there is any action in the book. If the next book is as bad, I'd say title it, "S is for Stop"
