    In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out.

    Overall

    This is the worst Clive Cussler book I have listened to. I got through 4 cd's and i had to put it down. there's too many characters to keep track of and I find myself drifting off. Scott Brick is great as usual.

    Would you listen to You're Next again? Why?

    I probably will listen to this book again, I was in such a rush to find out what happens next that I'm sure I missed some things.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You're Next?

    I really liked when they finally got the safe open. I also liked when they pulled off the casinoheist and many others. it is such a good book and it really got my emotions stirred up. There were also some times when I just smiled.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Definetly Shep He just had a simple way about him that made you love him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't wait to get back to the book every time i put in down.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Brick is my absolute favorite male narrator and he did not dissapoint. He kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Touch & Go to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely I get so much more out of listening if the narration is good. I was a bit disappointed in the beginning because Kirsten Potter did not narrate Det DD Warren but being she had such a small part in the book it worked out fine.


    What other book might you compare Touch & Go to and why?

    Well of course "love you More" where we first met Tessa Leone. I was glad to see her return in a different role. I just hope this doesn't mean Det DD Warren is on her way out because I absolutely love her character.


    What does Elisabeth Rodgers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This was the first book I listened to read by E Rodgers, she didn't dissapoint
    She read the characters and I could tell which character was speaking at most times


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when the daughter lost her baby but also when Radar gave Libby the medicine she needed
    he showed himself not to be the monster they thought


    Any additional comments?

    I had a hard time getting into some of Libby's character with all that money and beautiful home and not having to work. I was able to get past that but felt at times she was very naive or just selfish. she definetly needed to grow up and stop looking at the world through rose colored glasses. The daughter was a typical teen spoiled, defiant and definetly not stupid. The father was a total slime ball. I did enjoy the book and story very much, it was emotional at times and like Lisa Gardner's other books there are many twists and turns and you just have to finish the book to find out what happens and how it comes together in the end.
    I would highly recommend this book.

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    What did you love best about Love You More?

    It pulled me in and I couldn't stop till the end and then I listened to it againLisa Gardner has a way of bringing out all your emotions with great characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tesse Leone was a great character she seemed so fragile in the beginning but she is anything but especially training to fight at the academy. Det. DD Warren is great i LOVE her character but only when Kirsten Potter is narrating.this is a story about what a mother would do to save her child and the emotions run high.It also has a bit of humor with DD Warren being pregnant.


    What does Kirsten Potter and Katie MacNichol bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would give them a 10 if I could. I cannot listen to a book that Kirsten Potter was not Det DD Warren. Katie Mac Nichol has a soft sweet voice the opposite of Potter. together they worked well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes it certainly made me cry and even laugh a little


    Any additional comments?

    This is on my top ten books to listen to and I'm sure I will listen to it again.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Overall

    It took me two times to get into this book but then it took hold and didn't let me go.
    I miss it like an old friend, its that kind of book.
    the narration could not have been better. I was raised in NYS and never experienced the
    discrimination of the the south. Even though this is a fiction I know that this type of narrow-mindedness took place and still does. I laughed and I cried all through this book, the experience of listening to this was amazing, I loved some of the characters and hated others and thought others to be very shallow and afraid of speaking what they really felt in order to be accepteded. It was a really great book, one of the best.

    Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

    Overall

    I got sucked right into this series it is so good. I love Lorelei King as narrator, thats why i started this series in the first place. By the time I got to the 6th book I knew I world not be happy with the ending, With no new books on the horizon. Mercy Thompson's life does not do happily ever after.But there is hope for these characters yet, and I would happily recommend this series to anyone who likes colorful characters and a little magic.
    Best if read in order.
