    Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manualito witnesses the cold-blooded shooting of someone very close to her. With the victim fighting for his life, the entire squad and the local FBI office are hell-bent on catching the gunman. Bernie, too, wants in on the investigation, despite regulations forbidding eyewitness involvement. But that doesn't mean she's going to sit idly by, especially when her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, is in charge of finding the shooter. Bernie and Chee discover that a cold case involving his former boss and partner, retired Inspector Joe Leaphorn, may hold the key.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like, and really miss, Tony Hillerman's books this will help fill that void though I figured out who did it very early in the story. I think with more practice she will get the hang of mystery books and I have to add that her understanding of Navajo people is right on so I have to give her a high score on that.The narrator really helped in with keeping my interest in this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Bernie Chee. She is a smart woman while retaining her Navajoness. I would like to see more Bernie in future books with just a little Jim and Joe.


    Which character – as performed by Christina Delaine – was your favorite?

    The Navajo mother who I think was named Mrs Begay?


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The above non-named mother made me smile. She reminded me of all very strong mothers.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Anne continues to follow in her father's footsteps, but, with the caveat that she use more of her own insights into these characters. Mr. Hillerman cannot be replicated and he was able to write from a male perspective, Jim Chee and Joe Leaphorn, and now it is time for the Navajo female's perspective. Women see things differently than men and work their way to a conclusion differently which I think Bernie did quite well.

  • The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World

    • ORIGINAL (24 hrs and 28 mins)
    • By The Great Courses, Robert Garland
    • Narrated By Professor Robert Garland

    Story
    (879)

    Look beyond the abstract dates and figures, kings and queens, and battles and wars that make up so many historical accounts. Over the course of 48 richly detailed lectures, Professor Garland covers the breadth and depth of human history from the perspective of the so-called ordinary people, from its earliest beginnings through the Middle Ages.

    What did you love best about The Other Side of History: Daily Life in the Ancient World?

    Even though it is a history lesson, with hints of Social Anthropology, it is great for those of us who are nerds and love this type of book.
    For anyone this makes ancient history more palatable and a great deal more enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Egyptian life was very interesting.


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

    Definitely not. This is not that type of book but I certainly wanted to finish the epochs.
