    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    Troy says: "Chapter and part breaks are incorrect"
    "Movie in the making"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this story but I wondered why so much cruelty was inflicted upon the good characters or heroes? I believe there will be no happy endings here when the author gets done with it! But overall I'd like to see this made into a movie.

    Under a Bangkok bridge, inside a bolted-shut Mercedes, a Marine is killed by a python and a swarm of cobras. Two cops arrive too late. Minutes later, only one is alive: Sonchai Jitpleecheep. Now, his partner dead, Sonchai must search for the murderer in the moneyed underbelly of Bangkok - and track a predator of an even more sinister variety.

    Brett says: "Bangkok 8 worth the listen"

    Story

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Kerry says: "Witty and Wonderful"

    Overall

    Great insight on countries that I am interested in visiting.
