  • The Scar

    Sergey and Marina Dyachenko mix dramatic scenes with romance, action and wit, in a style both direct and lyrical. Written with a sure artistic hand, The Scar is the story of a man driven by his own feverish demons to find redemption and the woman who just might save him. Egert is a brash, confident member of the elite guards and an egotistical philanderer. But after he kills an innocent student in a duel, a mysterious man known as “The Wanderer” challenges Egert and slashes his face with his sword, leaving Egert with a scar that comes to symbolize his cowardice.

    The book was a little hard to get into but as the characters developed it became MUCH more interesting and hard to "put down"!

    It is well worth the listening too!

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Would you try another book from W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth and/or Dick Hill?

    BUT this one must have been written & narrated by his sixth grade son!!


    What was most disappointing about W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth ’s story?

    The "narration" did not sound @ all like DICK HILL.... The Story resembled "a hunt for a theme" ---- that was never found ----- at least as far as I listened ----- I DID NOT FINISH!!!!!

    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    If you could sum up Mayday in three words, what would they be?

    SUSPENSFUL --- Damning--- OUTSTANDING


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The substitute pilot, the main cabin attendant, & the 13 year old girl on the plane. Why, because they carried the main part of the story with some sense of humanity!!!!


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have found that listening to Scott Brick has caused me (GREAT) listening to most all of the books that he has been a part of .... and will continually to do so with pleasure!!


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

    How rotten & self centered some people can be to others. Such as the ones in the management of the airlines & the US Navy Commander! The insurance person are like most insurance companies --- "receiving premiums are great but paying claims are to be avoided @ almost any cost!"

    I served in the US NAVY --- & thank GOD THAT I NEVER RAN INTO A FELLOW Commander such as the one in this story!


    Any additional comments?

    Kept me awake nights --- could NOT put it down!!!

    When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize, but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Or is it?

    Story

    Mr. Forsyth is usually a very good listen. However there were many parts of the book that just seemed to cause me to drift off to other thoughts. Then I would have to backup and listen to the same part over again.

    The narrator had something to do with tediousness of the story --- he seemed to "plod" along with little enthusiasm.

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Acclaimed author Alan Furst has written several historical fiction novels. In Dark Star, Andre Szara, a Polish journalist who becomes a spy for the Soviet Union in the late 1930s, is ordered to complete many tasks of espionage in Paris. Through Szara's character, the beginnings of World War II are revealed. George Guidall's gripping narration complements this suspenseful tale.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Jane says: "Definitely entertaining. I had some smiles."

    This is a very special story as well as captivating listen! Although there are parts that are 'touching' as well 'heartfelt' no matter the person, profession, or criminal activity.

    This one of the BETTER 'Michael Connelly' books that he has written --- I have read almost all!!
