    Roger Ferris is one of the CIA's soldiers in the war on terrorism. He has come out of Iraq with a shattered leg and an intense mission: to penetrate the network of a master terrorist known only as "Suleiman". Ferris' plan for getting inside Suleiman's tent is inspired by a masterpiece of British intelligence during World War II: he prepares a body of lies, literally the corpse of an imaginary CIA officer who appears to have accomplished the impossible by recruiting an agent within the enemy's ranks.

    Michael says: "Body of Lies"
    "Interesting book"
    Overall

    I worried about buying this book after reading comments on the reader. While he is not my favorite, he does a very adequate job and does not distract from the story. If you know the difference between an Egyptian and a Jordanian accent, then you may worry. Otherwise enjoy a good story.

    This stand-alone work is widely regarded as Asimov's best science fiction novel. Andrew Harlan is an Eternal, a member of the elite of the future. One of the few who live in Eternity, a location outside of place and time, Harlan's job is to create carefully controlled and enacted Reality Changes. These Changes are small, exactingly calculated shifts in the course of history, made for the benefit of humankind. Though each Change has been made for the greater good, there are also always costs....

    I love Asimov and this is one of his good stories. The readers style fits well with the story.

  • Beyond Belief: The Secret Gospel of Thomas

    Spurred by personal tragedy, Elaine Pagels turns to a consideration of the Gnostic Gospels, in particular, the Gospel of Thomas. As opposed to the Gospel of John, which asserted that Jesus was an eternally existing aspect of God who came to earth to save humankind, the "secret" Gospel of Thomas agrees that Jesus was in some sense divine, but says that a streak of divinity can be found in all of us.

    Buford says: "Gospel of Thomas is somewhat a misnomer"
    "Interesting"

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

    Different approaches to Christianity


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Needed to stop and think about material before continuing on to new material
