    (4166)

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    What did you like best about Mr. Mercedes? What did you like least?

    Not what I expected. I was expecting a horror story not a crime novel. The description of what this book was about was missleading

    Story
    (5455)

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    NOOO a rambling story without purpose


    Has Shadow of Night turned you off from other books in this genre?

    YES


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NOOO


    Any additional comments?

    It seems as if there should have been another book before this one to set the stage of why they are going back in time in the first place. Perhaps if I was not doing anything else but laying back and listening to the book it would be much better but it requires your undivided attention.

    It also reminds me of one of those romance books with the guys shirt conveniently ripped off showing his 3 hour a day gym visitations. Ohhh he is going to suck my blood and we will be ever more tied together. Give me a break.

    What made the experience of listening to Conquest the most enjoyable?

    This romance crap was way too much of the story and it distracted from the main story. It seemed to be fluff so that 2 books could be stretched into three.
    The basic story line is solid and the first book introduction was stretched. Character development should void should have been filled with the idiotic round robin of romance interactions.
