    Northern New Jersey has a new local hero on its cultural crime turf. He's Andy Carpenter, the Paterson defense attorney who can sling a quip as fast as he can outmaneuver a snarling prosecutor. Acclaimed author David Rosenfelt's first novel was nominated for an Edgar Award. Now, in this new novel, the intrepid lawyer is thrust into the spotlight where he risks becoming a media victim...of the most fatal kind.

    "Bury the Lead is fun to listen to."
    Overall

    I throughly enjoyed this from start to finish - it helped that I am a golden retriever lover, but also I really enjoyed Andy's sense of humor and the characters in the book. Easy to listen to - keeps your interest - interesting - and funny!

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II, which begins with The Winds of War and continues here in War and Remembrance, stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Story

    I enjoyed listening to this and the winds of war for the historical information and the narration. I grew weary of the romance subplots and toward the end fast forwarded through them. When I read the books years ago it didn't bother me, but it was easier to speed through the romance when reading it. So, would have given all 5's except for that!!!

    Born in shadow and kept from heads of state, there are some missions so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. so deadly, so sensitive, that they simply don't exist. When one such mission goes horribly wrong, a wave of dramatic terrorist attacks is set in motion. Their goal: the complete and total collapse of the United States. With the CIA's intelligence abilities hobbled, former Navy SEAL Team 6 member turned covert counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath launches an audacious plan to infiltrate the terrorists' network and prevent one of the biggest threats the U.S. has ever faced.

    Story

    The action sections were good, but the commentary took over much of the book. Thought it might be
    doable, but after listening to less than half of the book, we couldn't handle anymore of that. The narration was done well though.

    In the vein of John le Carré and Graham Greene, this contemporary international thriller follows Milo Weaver as he is drawn into a conspiracy that links riots in the Sudan, an assassin committing suicide, and an old friend who's been accused of selling secrets to the Chinese. Once the CIA and Homeland Security are after him, the only way for him to survive is to return, headfirst, into Tourism.

    Derek says: "I loved this book"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    After reading the reviews thought this would be great. It was disappointing - the first half didn't catch my interest. Then it picked up and intrigued me, but most of the time I didn't understand the whole premise, and still didn't at the end. So, in summary, it kept my interest enough to listen to the whole thing, but that's it.

    Edgar-nominated author David Rosenfelt returns with his hero, Andy Carpenter, who must defend a football player accused of murder. The Giants' running back Kenny Schilling stands accused of killing Troy Preston, a wide receiver for the Jets. As Andy investigates, he finds that Troy is not the only football player who was killed after contact with Kenny...and his snooping starts to set off alarms with a drug king.

    Rob says: "Why must it be abridged?"
    "Review by a golden retriever fan"
    Overall

    I really enjoy the narration of this and the previous Bury the Lead. Being a golden retriever owner, I am especially appreciative of Andy's love of his golden, Tara. My only complaint about this audio book was that it was abridged, which took away some of its color.

    Twenty-eight-year-old Sean McGillin is the picture of health, until he fractures his leg while in-line skating in New York City's Central Park. Within 24 hours of his surgery, he dies.

    Martin says: "A bit too predictable"
    "Riveting but science fiction"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this story, but found much of the hospital scenes unrealistic. I work in a hospital and have never seen people treat patients like many of the hospital staff in these scenes did.

    Nick Conover, the son of a factory worker, is the CEO of a major corporation in a company town. Nick, once the most admired man in Fenwick, Michigan, is now, having presided over massive layoffs, the most despised. A single parent since the recent death of his wife, he's struggling to insulate his 10-year-old daughter and angry 16-year-old son from the town's hostility.

    James says: "Nail-biting suspense"
    "Engrossing yet depressing"
    Overall

    I had to give this 5 stars - the narrator was terrific as he always is, and the story had unexpected twists and turns, and it held my interest through 17 hours! I DID find it depressing though, because much of the story had dishonorable people and I tired of this.

    Evan, Tessa, Linnet, and India: four remarkable women. Three generations of Hartes. One indomitable family whose loyalty binds them together and whose enemies want to tear them apart.

    "Interesting but too much detail"
    Overall

    First let me say that the story kept my attention and the narration was very good. I enjoyed learning about the rest of the Emma Harte saga. At times it went into too much detail about every dress that every person was wearing at an event, etc. but I would still recommend it to anyone who has read the other Barbara Taylor Bradford books. It was at it's best during the suspenseful moments.

    For the Wittgenstein family, the summer of 1915 was a time of both prosperity and unease, as the guns of war sound in the distance. But for eldest daughter Beata, it was also a summer of awakening. By glimmering Lake Geneva, the quiet Jewish beauty met a young French officer and fell in love.

    D. Hurley says: "Great Story, Great Narrator"
    "Echoes"
    Overall

    This kept my attention, and as other reviews have said, it is not a traditional Danielle Steel novel. It did have some lighthearted parts, but don't listen to it if you need cheering up because of the holocaust and world war 2 theme. You really got to know the characters in this and feel the agony, fear, and bravery of the jews during world war 2. It does have romance too, though!
