  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 20 mins)

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Would you listen to Lamb again? Why?

    This is a wonderfully told, light hearted "Biblical" story without being sacrilegious. Laugh out loud funny and I could certainly visualize the people and the places.


    What other book might you compare Lamb to and why?

    Similar to Dogma but without the edge.


    What about Fisher Stevens’s performance did you like?

    Fisher did a great job as the reader.


    If you could take any character from Lamb out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Of course, who wouldn't want to have dinner with Jesus H. Christ, but I'd want BIF to come along too.

    Cotton Malone and his 15-year-old son, Gary, are headed to Europe. As a favor to his former boss at the Justice Department, Malone agrees to escort a teenage fugitive back to England. But after he is greeted at gunpoint in London, both the fugitive and Gary disappear, and Malone learns that he’s stumbled into a high-stakes diplomatic showdown - an international incident fueled by geopolitical gamesmanship and shocking Tudor secrets.

    Carol says: "First Book Mr Berry fell flat on."
    "Not a great Steve Berry & definitely not Dan Brown"

    Would you try another book from Steve Berry and/or Scott Brick?

    I always look forward to the new Steven Berry book and I think Scott Brick is a great reader. But King's Deception just didn't do it for me. I suspect that Berry was 1/2 way through writing the book when Ghadaffi was killed, so he had to do the story as a recollection, which was a distraction early on.

    I just never got into the story, but I also don't care much about British Royalty or history.

    I slogged through to the end, but it definitely put me to sleep several times.


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

    The least interesting part was the arcane British history.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Scott was overly dramatic at times.

  • Under the Dome: A Novel

    Story
    (5157)

    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."
    "King's Dome"
    Overall

    A great Audiobook. Don't let the length deter you. It has great pace all the way through!

    Story
    (59)

    "Been a while since I had me a nice little whodunit," homicide detective Milo Sturgis tells Alex Delaware. But there's definitely nothing nice about the brutal tableau behind the yellow crime-scene tape. On a lonely lover's lane in the hills of Los Angeles, a young couple lies murdered in a car. Each bears a single gunshot wound to the head.

    Susan says: "Fun Listening"
    "Too much detail"
    Overall

    For me, this is a rare case where the abridged version would have been better. The book was just took too long to get to the finale, and I thought there was way too much detail with the dialog.

    I would say it would be worth 5 hours of my time, but not 10!
