If you liked Hunger Games, try this one. Another view of humanity's future, in a world shaped by "City Killer" storms, where people struggle to survive by salvaging the relics of the past.
While I'm sure that Dick Hill is a great narrator for some characters, he is just not energetic enough to pull off Jack Reacher. Sadly, he sounds like an aging mobster from somewhere in the midwest. Kind of wheezy and trying to sound tough, but not quite getting there.
If you want to listen to a Reacher book, try one narrated by Jonathan McClain.
This was billed as "fans of Jack Reacher will like." Not even close. I stopped listening after 3 hours, just was painful.
Amazing stories. Amazing writing. Amazing narrator. Treat yourself - get all the Wee Free Men and Tiffany Aching books at once, and just go for it!
If you listen while you drive, you will find yourself seeking out back roads, alternate routes, picking the furthest parking space...
If you listen while you exercise, prepare to walk further, jog more miles, lift longer...
If you listen while you do chores, your house will be spotless, laundry folded promptly, perhaps even your car cleaned!
An incredible book. Along with the characters, you navigate the twists and turns of a very, very complicated relationship. Absolutely nothing is as it seems - and the final outcome is as inevitable as it is disturbing.
Harry Dresden adds new responsibilities and powers to his already impressive list... A fun ride, full of the classic irreverent reparte with beings both great and small.
Don't read this one first, you might give up on a wonderful series. Usually, I find excuses to drive around so I can listen to Walt Longmire mysteries.This one was lacking...
The plot was not gripping, way too much wedding drama. I found myself asking my iPod why Walt didn't just ask Ruby to make some phone calls and save everyone a lot of trouble?
And there is another unlikely romance between Vietnam era men and women in their late 20s. I find it dubious, to say the least.
This was an amazing book. The descriptions of Harold's interactions with people along the way are by turns laugh-out-loud funny, tender, insightful, and painfully sad.
A heart-wrenching and yet joyful story of a family that lost its way and then found it again,
This book reveals how Walt's experiences in Vietnam made him the person he is. Craig Johnson does a masterful job, enthralling the reader with the present day mystery while simultaneously unfolding a past crime committed during wartime.
This is a really, really good series. Makes you want to book your next vacation to Wyoming, find the Busy Bee Cafe and wait to see these folks wander in.
I have to say, Dog really shines in this one. Along with Butch and Sundance.
That cowboy drawl of Walt's, the Bear's very complete sentences, and Vic's Philly profaneness are all right there - just wouldn't be the same in printed page.
Sex, drugs, and man's best friend
