    Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother - a singer “stolen” to Pyongyang - and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return.

    Story

    The characters drew me into a story of living in a grim place that I would not have wanted to hear about for hours and hours without the character involvement. I don't know much about North Korea but this story was very informative and though fantastical, believable.

    Tensions are rising in the Middle East. Iran’s president vows to annihilate the United States and Israel. Israel’s prime minister says someone must hit Iran’s nuclear sites “before it’s too late.” The American president warns against a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities and says negotiations are the key to finding peace. And amid it all, rumors are swirling throughout the region of a mysterious religious cleric claiming to be the Islamic messiah.

    How could the performance have been better?

    the performance was okay, it was the story that was bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Nicole says: "You love it or you hate it..."
    "abrupt ending"
    Overall

    very good listen until the final few minutes. it seemed like someone said "time"s up! finish now!" i guess there will be a sequel?

    Meet Vinh Murphy, part African American, part Vietnamese, with just enough Irish thrown in to make things confusing for anyone looking for a guy named Murphy. Since an assignment in which his wife, Angelina, was fatally shot, Murphy has been unemployed, battling booze and blackouts, and bumming it from shelter to shelter. He eventually reaches out to Hannah Whitfield, an old friend and his saving grace.

    Kimberly says: "Into the Fire"
    "too many characters"
    Overall

    by the time i listened to this book i did not remember that it was part of a series. i had not read any other books in the series. i found it difficult to keep all the many characters personal and romantic relationships straight. i kept asking myself "why did you buy this book?" the ending left the most interesting (to me) relationship hanging. after finishing the story, i reread the review and find the review to promise a better story than was delivered. that it is a series is perhaps why i felt left hanging as to the outcome of the "most interesting" relationship.
