    John Dean's last New York Times best seller, Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush, offered the former White House insider's unique and telling perspective on George W. Bush's presidency. Once again, Dean employs his distinctive knowledge and understanding of Washington politics and process to examine the conservative movement's current inner circle of radical Republican leaders, from Capitol Hill to Pennsylvania Avenue to K Street and beyond.

    "overall, interesting read"
    Overall

    how the White House is hijacked by right wing conservative Christian fundamentalists with the smug conviction that their attitudes and beliefs are all that matter. Hijacked? Maybe not, maybe the correct idea is that the president as sold the executive branch to this movement. I used to think this president was just a dope, but now I think maybe he's just an astute salesman- he knew he could not prevail by right of his own (lack of) accomplishments, so he figured out how to pander to this smarmy bunch who could deliver him votes.

    Be careful what you wish for. Traveling abroad with her mother at the turn of the 20th century to seek a titled husband, beautiful, vivacious Cora Cash, whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts’, suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham, married to Ivo, the most eligible bachelor in England. Nothing is quite as it seems, however: Ivo is withdrawn and secretive, and the English social scene is full of traps and betrayals.

    Maria says: "I loved this book!"
    "Totally pointless"
    Overall

    There could have been so many good sub plots developed here- so many themes- but much is left unexplored and under developed. Especially Bertha's situation, Cora's parents' relationship in light of the mother's excesses, etc. Totally boring and essentially trivial. Don't waste a credit or your time.

    Tall, lean and headstrong, FBI agent Kilraven lives by his own rules. And one of those rules includes keeping his hands off Jacobsville’s resident sweetheart, Winnie Sinclair, no matter the temptation. Shy and innocent, Winnie couldn’t handle a man like him – a merciless man with a haunted past. And this small town may hold not only the woman he fights to resist, but the answers to a cold case that is very personal to Kilraven.

    Judy says: "No Stars Had it Not Been for the Narrator!"
    "painfully bad"
    Overall

    The narrator has a painfully bad voice. The main character sounds like he's on Valium. Monotone and monotonous. The female voices' falsettos and accents are hysterically bad. The story itself and dialog is awkward and unbelievable. Save your money. I wished I could get a refund after the first 5 minutes. And it just doesn't get better.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."
    "great...til the end"
    Overall

    great novel, I couldn't stop listening. The character development was terrific.
    BUT, the narrator did terrible accents. Big Jim sounded like a theatrical gay from Alabama. Remy sounded like a Jamaican.
    The cause of the dome didn't fit with the rest of the story. I felt like the story kind of fell off the cliff at the end.

    Spurred by her mother's dying wish, Susannah Connolly has traveled from her lifelong home on the Connecticut shoreline to the fabled French Camargue, to see its famous white horses and find a mysterious saint linked to her family's history. An accomplished anthropologist, Susannah has always been confident of her ability to navigate anywhere on the globe.

    "painfully dull"
    Overall

    I'm a big Rice fan, but this was the most painfully dull book, overly romantic and full of baloney about horses. As one who's grown up on a horse farm, I didn't know weather to laugh of vomit over al the romaticizing and factual errors about horses. And the soppy male lead? Get real!

As she tries to unravel the mystery of that violent night, a harrowing journey begins; one that takes her from Tahoe¿s dark underworld to a prestigious East Coast university and to Europe, where an emotional reunion with the father of her teenage son awaits her.

    I could not get past the narrator's lisp and slushy "s"es. It detracted from the story.

    Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the French Pyrenees: the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, her version of the life of Jesus and the events of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of L'Attendu, the Expected One.

    Sheila says: "the Expected One (unabridged)"
    "excellent!"
    Overall

    Couldn't turn it off. Great story, and the afterword was dynamite. Dan Brown is not the only one who can write a compelling Mary story.

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    "waste of a credit"
    Overall

    Shallow, whiny characters, lengthy passages on essentially nothing, ultimately, who cares? Did the characters ever experience any growth, or introspection, or ANYTHING? No, not really. Scary? No, not at all. When they meet their fate, we just don't care. And to the previous reader, yes, it was the unabridged version, and I read alot too.

    love this book. The author is quirky, plain spoken, open and honest. Who says if you're a Christian you have to be a right wing Bush-lover??

    She brings these ladies to life. Showcases their strength, dedication, and courage, inspite of the era of inequality they lived in.
