    On the streets of Washington, D.C., a brilliant scientist, the brains behind a revolutionary fighter aircraft prototype in development by the Pentagon, is snatched by masked thugs and disappears. Now five years later, an elderly professor at Cambridge University has been murdered, a victim of bizarre, ancient Chinese torture. Alex Hawke teams up with Scotland Yard former Chief Inspector Ambrose Congreve to find the killer, but this death is merely the opening gambit in a tense and lethal game of geopolitical brinksmanship.

    Story

    Take the cheesiest action hero movie you can think of, sprinkle in some old tired jokes and unimaginative one liners and you get Warriors. I'm by no means a book snob, I like the action books as much as the next guy but this book was just good to not turn of and give up on but by no means was it good enough.

    Master novelist Daniel Silva has thrilled listeners with 16 thoughtful and gripping spy novels featuring a diverse cast of compelling characters and ingenious plots that have taken them around the globe and back - from the United States to Europe, Russia to the Middle East. His brilliant creation, Gabriel Allon - art restorer, assassin, spy - has joined the pantheon of great fictional secret agents, including George Smiley, Jack Ryan, Jason Bourne, and Simon Templar.

    Story

    The beginning of the book held my attention and I was excited to have found a good book. About 4 hours in the story just stalled and stalled and stalled. I'm about half way through and I'm not sure if I can push through anymore, it is just not going anywhere and I find myself in and out of paying attention, a problem I rarely have with audio books. I may try to push through it because I like the premise of the story, but overall very disappointing.

    The third book in this series, I like each book a little less than the first. Still though I would have to say I would recommend it. The book is entertaining and holds your attention throughout. Narration was good as always.

    New York Times best-selling author Conn Iggulden's Genghis Khan novels are infused with action, adventure, and rich historical details further fleshing out the great warlord's world. Having risen from his tribal upbringing, Genghis now leads a horde of fellow countrymen on a mission of conquest throughout Asia. Escaping the Gobi Desert, he faces his greatest challenge, overtaking the empire of the Chin - a land protected by a massive, impenetrable wall.

    I loved the first book in this series and I was disappointed when I saw there was a new narrator but Richard Ferrone does a fine job as well. The book while not as interesting as the first is still a very good and an entertaining read.

    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.

    Not as good as the first book but if you read the first book and liked it, it won't disappoint. I think Wouk is one of the best storytellers I have ever read. Kevin Pariseau is a perfect fit for this book, he does a tremendous job narrating.

It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't."

    This book was an interesting concept but I feel like the author could have done so much more with it. I found myself getting bored with the book. Overall, it is not a must read but it is also not terrible. It was just so so.

    This is my second Wouk book and he does not disappoint. He gets you so involved in the characters that the story line really comes in second. I never thought he would be able to keep my attention for this entire book but after reading the Cain Mutiny I had to give it a chance and it was great. Highly recommend.
