    After a woman is brutally slain, investigators bring psychiatrist Joe O'Loughlin in for expert consultation. Joe is shocked to discover the dead woman is a former patient of his who cried rape when he rebuffed her sexual advances. Citing doctor/patient confidentiality, Joe hides this information. But the truth emerges, and suddenly he is the prime suspect.

    Writer and Reader and brilliant.
    Short, simple and to the point. Want some great moments listening to the writing of one artist, spoken by another?
    Can't beat this.

    Dylan O'Connor, a gifted young artist, is attacked by a mysterious "doctor" and injected with a strange substance. He is told that he is now a carrier of something that will either kill him...or transform his life. Then he is told that he must flee before the doctor's enemies hunt him down. Stunned, disbelieving, Dylan is turned loose to run for his life - and straight into an adventure that will turn the next 24 hours into an odyssey of terror, mystery, and wondrous discovery.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Superb"
    "DECIDED!"
    Overall

    For years I've been undecided whether or not I really liked or enjoyed D. Koontz's books. The eartly ones were just great fun. This one finally did it. I'm so sorry I wasted $ on this. I'm tired to death of his formulated tales, and, hopefully, will never feel comepelled to try another one. This one has been deleted one-quarter read from my library.

    A wealthy man tinkering with his vintage sports car is incinerated when the car explodes. Twelve years later, his first wife, believing it was murder rather than an accident, asks Miami's Cold Case Squad, a homicide unit dealing with unsolved cases, to investigate. What they discover is more than just conflicting autopsy reports.

    The reader of E. Buchanan's book is so removed fromt the material, good luck trying to follow it. I didn't mean to switch reads on books, but when it happened, I was so relieved, not going back to try to finish it.

    An assistant curator of Munich's National Museum, Vicky Bliss is no expert on Egypt, but she does have a Ph.D. in solving crimes. So when an intelligence agency offers her a luxury Nile cruise if she'll help solve a murder and stop a heist of Egyptian antiquities, all 5'11" of her takes the plunge.

    "The Voice"
    Overall

    The Reader's tones are all you can hear of this book. Buy hard copy. This audiobook is almost impossible to listen to, as the reader sounds like she is so absorbed in her own tones and not focused on the material, one could go to sleep -- AND this is a good book. the Listener has to re-hear author's voice. Shame on your indulgence, Reader. Shame. Get over it.

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Robert says: "Endearing. Pathos, humor, reality, and insight."
    "Insight & Intrigue"
    Overall

    Through the eyes of the protagonist, an adolescent borne with cross of Asberger's Syndrome, I see a huge world fraught with dangers, loud noises, uncomprehension and great desire to set things "right." Oh, Gee...could it be a wonderful part of me? Oh, yes, I think. Via his sales of hardcopy and audio, I'm so glad I'm not alone. I only wish Christopher could know this too. What a fine sleuth he is. Excellent reader.

    Precious Ramotswe's comfortable existence as the only detective in Botswana is suddenly rattled when the Satisfaction Guaranteed Detective Agency opens, and its brochure proclaims, "Don't take any chances! Entrust your enquiries to a MAN!" As if the development isn't enough, Mma Ramotswe has also taken on two difficult cases, one of which hits close to home. But with wisdom on her side, Mma Ramotswe figures to crack both cases and upstage her competition.

    "Another World"
    Overall

    As in each of the A.McCall books, this one, again, takes me to a place of peace/without boredom; learning and discovery/without condescension; and, excitement/without adrenaline. The Reader, Lizette, is not "good." She is brilliant. I would love to see her perform, for she must be a splendid actress onstage/film, as well as on recorded books. Give yourself a wonderful treat with all these Botswana books...careful though, might make you want to move there - soon.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Overall

    Every book of Burke's is better than the one before; or, so it seems. Perhaps, after all are read, this reader will read them backward - to see if each is not a prize unto itself. James Lee Burke, thank you for getting sober. Thank you for continuing to instruct as well as add brilliance to the imagination's bank account. And, Will, the reader, is so very fine. Thank you.

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "Needs some good help..."
    Overall

    Who cares? None of the good guys are interesting. None of the bad guys are interesting. Never thought I'd applaud a reader for being melodramatic, but Scott B.'s read is the only thing that kept me listening to this endless tale. The ending reminds one of the kiss at the end of a sexless romance novel, but rather than embrace, the two just walk away. Won't be trying to find out if they ever meet again.

  • The House of Mirth

    The House of Mirth was Edith Wharton's first great novel. Set among the elegant brownstones of New York City and opulent country houses like gracious Bellomont on the Hudson, the novel creates a satiric portrayal of what Wharton herself called "a society of irresponsible pleasure-seekers" with a precision comparable to that of Proust.

    Everett Leiter says: "Fine reading of a great classic"
    "Catching Breath"
    Overall

    The reader on this selection must needs go back to vocal production classes. One note - out of breath by ends of sentences. Such a brilliant book. Such an inexperienced reader - or a really scared director - or someone posing as a sound engineer. Don't buy. Awful narration. Read the book.
