    World War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon.

    Marc says: "Best Corps so far"
    "Monotonous"
    Overall

    Maybe I misread the summary, but I thought the book would describe the actions of forces in the Philippines. However, it was more of a description of the back door politics of the military in Washington. If you want a history of the OSS it might be for you, but if you are looking for a war novel describing the action in WWII in the Pacific, you should look elswhere.

    When Napoleon Bonaparte died in exile in 1821, he took to the grave a powerful secret. As general and emperor, he had stolen immeasurable riches from palaces, national treasuries, and even the Knights of Malta and the Vatican. In his final days, his British captors hoped to learn where the loot lay hidden. But he told them nothing, and in his will he made no mention of the treasure. Or did he?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Twice I tried listening to this book and both times I couldn't finish. It may be interesting for history buffs since the author tends to discuss a lot of Napoleonic history.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hunger Games

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very interesting and always action packed


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

    NO.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the plot and the narration, but could have done with out the sound effects. (i.e. gun shots)

    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

    I tried to listen to this book many times, and it was so hard to follow I kept falling asleep. After about two hours of listening I stopped.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Good"
    Overall

    At times the story is a little long winded, but it did keep me interested. One of the things I like about Nelson Demille books is that they make me think politically and wonder if something like this could really happen.

    This thought-provoking journal of a man's quest for truth - and for himself - has touched and changed an entire generation, and is ready to reach out to a new one. At its heart, the story is all too simple: a man and his son take a motorcycle trip across America. But this is not a simple trip at all, for around every corner, their pilgrimage leads them to new vistas of self-discovery and renewal.

    CARL V PHILLIPS says: "definitive version, hasn't aged too badly"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I tried reading the book a few years ago and put it down after 50 pages. This time I tried listening to it hoping that maybe I missed something. Nope. After about two hours of ramblings on the mechanics of a motorcycle, I decided to stop listening.
    I hope others find the book more interesting.
