  • The Collected Bowdrie Dramatizations: Volume 1 (Dramatized)

    It was a name that caused the most hardened gunmen to break out in a cold sweat: Texas Ranger Chick Bowdrie. Pursuing the most wanted men in the Southwest, he knew all too well the dusty trails, the bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the quiet, weather-beaten towns that could explode into mayhem with the wrong word. He had sworn to carry out the law, but there were times when he had to apply justice with his fists and his guns.

    I very much like the Bowdrie stories. This collection has many of the best tales and is worth listening to more than once. I only wish I could get Volume 2 if there is one.

    If you could sum up Among the Gods in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, entertaining, enlightening


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I have over 600 titles in my library and if I had to give up all but one of the book series in my library, this would be the one I would keep.

  • Mere Christianity

    Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books, The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of the religion.

    Any additional comments?

    I regret that I did not go ahead and listen to this book before now. Of course there are differences of opinion on some minor points, but Mr. Lewis had a God given talent to explain things that open your eyes to a whole new way of thinking about a subject that you may not have considered. My only regret now is that there is not ten stars to rate this book, because in my humble opinion this book is twice the book of most good books.

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    "WOW,, this is a REALLY, Really, really bad book"
    Overall

    It was very slow to start, jumped around and was very hard to follow in the beginning. The fact that the author tried to stuff his political and religious, or lack of beliefs down your throat didn't help a lot. I wish I could describe my disdain for this book in more intricate detail but to be honest I think I lost a few brain cells listening to it.

    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.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "Should be a mature audience rating on this one"
    Overall

    This could have been a very good book. However after listening to less than half of the book I could not in good conscience finish it because of the vulgar language. Hey I'm a big boy and can usually take listening to it here and there but come on. The gratuitous explicative's were more than I could take. I mean who really G*Ds, and F's every other sentence. It went beyond setting the mood or character of the actors to a personal anti religion spew by the author. I'm very disappointed because this could have been a really good listen.

    John Barrett, anchorman for News Six at Five, has a problem. He's caught his producer skewing a story to suit her own prejudices, then lying to cover her tracks. The "accidental" death of John's father is also now in question, after the father's controversial testimony. And a young girl has been murdered, and John is the only one who can prove it.

    If you do any research into the books Peretti writes you will have no confusion as to the subject matter. CHRISTIAN author.

    Personally I find it a very refreshing book and enjoyed it throughly. I found it hard to stop listening when I arrived at my destination. I wish all the Peretti books were unabridged.

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    It's the Camel Club do I need to say more. This book is right up there with all the Camel Club books.

    Full of twists and turns and I enjoyed listening to this book. The only negative is that there is not a sequel.
