    The Five features a rock band skirting the margins of success while touring the American Southwest. Life on the road, however, takes a strange turn when they encounter an Iraq War veteran. Soon thereafter, violence descends on the group, and their lives are tuned to a terrifying pitch.

    Story

    I found the Five absorbing – great character development. I began to think of the Five as real people that I wanted to meet and get to know. Story line was not necessarily unique but that didn’t matter. I was a little disappointed in the ending. Not sure what I expected or how I would have wanted it to end but to me it just kinda sizzled out. Was long but you come to expect that with McCammon. The band members still cross my mind and I find my self missing them and wondering where they would be now and what they would be doing.

    Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    Story

    Even though the book is dated due to the references to Russia you soon forget about that and become totally involved in the unfolding story. At the begining I was reminded of Stephen King's the Stand. That quickly changed. Although it is the same premise the story line and characters unfold much differently. They, both good and bad continue to grow as the saga (and it is a saga) unfolds.. It is very hard to stop listening once you get started. Because it is so long, my suggestion is to wait until you have plenty of time to listen such as on a long road trip or maybe painting a house. :) Seriously Swan Song is so creative and well written that it is very hard to stop listening. I loved the characters especially Sister. CC

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    What made the experience of listening to The Affair the most enjoyable?

    This book goes back in time not only to solve a murder but to explain why Reacher left the military. At the end is another short story about Reacher and his brother when they were young teenagers. Don't miss either one of them - and if you have not already ck out Lee Child's web site. Good reading :)
