    Special Agent Pendergast arrives at an exclusive Colorado ski resort to rescue his protégée, Corrie Swanson, from serious trouble with the law. His sudden appearance coincides with the first attack of a murderous arsonist who - with brutal precision - begins burning down multimillion-dollar mansions with the families locked inside. After springing Corrie from jail, Pendergast learns she made a discovery while examining the bones of several miners who were killed 150 years earlier by a rogue grizzly bear.

    This book is very predictable and there is not too much suspense...not up to the normal Pendergast standards in my opinion....

    Khaled Hosseini, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations.

    Story

    I can't help but think this would have been much better with different readers. I liked the fact that there were both male and female readers but their accents were so thick that it was a real effort to understand the words. I think this took away from my enjoyment. The story was in turn engaging and emotional then tedious and plodding. One minute I was totally engaged with a lump in my throat on the verge of tears and the next minute I was zoning out trying to figure out why there was so much mundane detail. All in all, not nearly as good as the author's other book..

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    At first I was a little bit nervous about the subject of this book, but those fears immediately disappeared once I got into the book. The reader is outstanding. You experience virtually every emotion during this book and it will stay with you long after you listen to the last word....

    (3358)

    A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the saga of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century, time-traveling wife, Claire. The year is 1772, and the rift between Britain and its American colonies has put a frightening word into the minds of all concerned: revolution. In the backwoods of North Carolina, violence has already reared its ugly head, as cabins have been burned to the ground. To preserve the colony for King George III, the governor pleads with Jamie to bring the people together and restore peace. But Jamie has the burden of knowing that war cannot be avoided.

    B.J. says: "Another terrific listen."
    "The best book since early in the series!!!"

    Story

    A couple of the recent books were a little slow with too much day to day life detail, but this one was full of lots of sub-plots and character development. A lot happens in the story. Of course, there is lots of Calire/Jamey story line but also a lot of exciting things happen with other people as well. The plot twists were excellent. As with every one of the Outlander books, I felt empty when it was over and wanted to be back in their world again. There is every emotion in this book and the ending leaves you with a tightness in your throat if not in tears. As usual, Davina Porter is outstanding, I am going to savor the last two Outlander books!!!!

  • 11-22-63: A Novel

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Would you consider the audio edition of 11-22-63 to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but I can't imagine it could be a better experience than listening to this audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 11-22-63?

    I can't say the most memorable moment because it will give away the story to anone who has not read it to the end.


    What about Craig Wasson’s performance did you like?

    The reader had extremely expressive tone when the story called for it. Some of his accents were a little comical (I heard Burt Lancaster and maybe Bill Clinton) in some of the secondary characters, but it in no way took away from the story. In fact, I got a chuckle out of it.


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

    There were many very moving moments in the story. I got choked up several times and even teared up once or twice. The ending is particularly moving, especially if you are at all romantic.


    Any additional comments?

    I have to say that I experienced every emotion while listening to this book. It was extremely well written and grabbed me in from the very beginning and held my interest throughout the entire story. It was never boring as many long books are, and in fact, I hated when it ended. I have read lots of Stephen King and enjoyed him through the years but this is far and away the best think I have ever read by him. Absolutely five stars. I will recommend it to anyone who loves a good book!!

    Lily is haunted by memories of who she once was, and of a person, long gone, who defined her existence. She has nothing but time now, as she recounts the tale of Snow Flower and asks the gods for forgiveness.

    Barbara A Danner says: "Disappointing"

    Overall

    While I enjoyed the story and the message regarding the unique quality of friendship between women, I absolutely HATED the reader. Her interpretation of the words was in a sing-songy and fake emotional voice...I found it very distracting and totally ruined the impact of the story line. The sections about the foot binding are very interesting and give the listener a good insight into this practice and how truly painful it must have been. I may read or listen to other books by this author but NEVER by this narrator.

  • The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "What a Terrific Book"
    "another great Bosch case"
    Overall

    I thought this was a great caper even though it was written years ago and I have listened to more recently written Harry Bosch books. Its pretty funny to have Bosch using a pager and pay phones!! Great twisting plot line....good read (listen)

    It was a crime so brutal, it changed the lives of even the most hardened homicide cops. The Haas family murders left a scar on the community nothing can erase, but everyone agrees that convicting the killer, Karl Dahl, is a start. Only Judge Carey Moore seems to be standing in the way. Her ruling that Dahl's prior criminal record is inadmissible raises a public outcry, and puts the judge in grave danger.

    Patty says: "Couldn't Turn it Off"
    "predictable"
    Overall

    even though the identity of the perps is left to the end, the love interest angle is so obvious... its ok, but not as good as some crime stories
