    Once Amy and Dan Cahill's choice was simple - take a million dollars or the first of 39 Clues that lead to the source of unimaginable power. Now it's clear that the hunt for Clues is bigger than anything that Amy and Dan could ever have imagined.

    Overall

    I down loaded book 1 in the series as my wife was nagging me for a new book to listen to. It wasn't long before I downloaded all ten books. They were easy listening and it was great that David Pittu was able to narate all the books in the series. The series may have been written for teenagers but my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed them

    Her father always warned her that the bayou was a mysterious and dangerous place. She never suspected that the greatest danger of her life was lurking in New York City. Before their bags are unpacked one of two Cajun girls in fresh from Louisiana is found savagely murdered in New York. All the clues point to a wild animal, a perplexing development for a third floor apartment. Lacking a suspect the police accompany the murdered girl's French speaking roommate back to her reclusive Southern Louisiana town in search of a lead.

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

    Yes. It was different and I enjoyed the storyline and the narrator


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I think the concept of an alligator in a major city was interesting and believable. Nothing negative


    What about Suzy Lexington’s performance did you like?

    I think her use of the local dialect was good and added a different aspect to the story


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I think the author could have stretched the stor line out for another hour

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    What would have made The City better?

    If it had not been written. It was not the Dean Koontz I know and was an insult to his writing skills. I did not even finish the book. Probably listened to an hour but couldn't stand it any ;onger


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    All Saints Secrets


    What didn’t you like about Korey Jackson’s performance?

    It was boring but then again the story line was boring


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The City?

    The Book


    Any additional comments?

    I was really disappointed in this novel. It was not up to the standard Koontz has exhibited over the years.

She's no ordinary woman and she's about to introduce him to a world of danger, wonder and ancient history that will challenge his courage and threaten his safety, and hers.

    A Different narratror


    Would you recommend The Lost Garden to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but in Kindle format. The narrator ruined this story


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator needed to put more feeling into her voice. Very bland and monotone


    What character would you cut from The Lost Garden?

    The narrator


    Any additional comments?

    I will not be reading book 2 if it is narrated by the same person

    Kait Winchester inherited a special gift from her Arapaho ancestors: She can heal with her touch. And there is no one she would like to get her hands on more than the super-sexy SEAL who seems determined to ignore their off-the-charts chemistry. When the wounded warrior finally seeks her help, she’s ready to nurse him back to health…and into her bed.

    Would you try another book from Trish McCallan and/or Luke Daniels?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Trish McCallan’s story?

    What I thought was going to be an action adventure story turned out to be a B grade sex novel


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voices of the main characters were woeful


    What character would you cut from Forged in Ash?

    The author


    Any additional comments?

    The author should decide if she want's to write action adventure or a sex novel. Sure love and romance have their place in action stories but this is over the top with the author fixated on large male appendages
