Spine tingling? Maybe? It was one hellova good Navy book. From the boring administrative details of Navy life, to the smashing conclusion; the book was a fun read. And, as always with a Coonts novel, our hero saves the world for democracy and the American way.
I liked this book and listened to it almost straight through. Couldn't resist the parallel between Piper Kerman in this book and Cheryl Strayed (Wild) as both overcame adversity and told the story about it...then profited from a book. The story appealed to me because she admitted her guilt and recovered from it--with the help of the other inmates at Danbury. Now, where is that TV show?
Anderson has done another exciting book in #5 of the destroyermen series. From the title, I assumed that it would be a connecting book between the set up last book and whatever comes in the next one; I was not disappointed. Author balances several plot lines and finally brings a couple of them together at the end while cementing future actions. Where is book #6?
Not a bad whodunit, but the perp was introduced in the last few minutes....personal foul, 15 yard penalty!
The sequel to "When the Wind Blows," the thesis is fascinating. The evil doctor seeks to save the world by enhancing select humans. He sees the winged children as a threat...I guess that sets up the tension. And, it engages the reader as two sci-fi themes unfold. This book should be read AS a sequel. BTW, my copy is 13+03 hours and the book started to repeat only certain parts--I believe something went wrong with the download.
The plot twisted and intricate, the characters developed nicely. Scarpetta seems like she plays a smaller role, or rather other characters emerge. Old villains continue to plague the members of the Last Precinct. The ending leaves room for another novel...I'll get it next month.
Two and a half Harry Bosch stories -- two are great and reflect his greatness as reflected through the author. Great whodunits. I was a little peeved that the third read/listen was just the first few chapters of another book. I hate it when they do that!
The final book in the Lincoln Lawyer series,it's great Connally! No plot, but this is the story of a pimp/webmaster. Aren't all web masters sorta pimp-like? Exciting ending kept me on my toes. This is the last of the series, I hope that Connelly writes another Lincoln Lawyer.
One of Clancy's first. It's an exciting cop thriller with love, revenge and mystery contained in a suspenseful context. The hero falls i love with a drug addict and seeks revenge for her killer. I can't imagine that kind of life, which is why it 's exciting.
Long range mining of the asteroid belt? What an idea. Inside fighting on a corporate board and development of an engine that cuts weeks off the flight make feasible a journey that will save Earth from massive flooding. Exciting right up to the last minute. Where's the next book in the series?
Incredible story of survivial in the Antarctic. I knew the story and knew the ending would be success. But, all the parts in between were magnificent. I was even struck by the logic of he decisions made--some people you just don't want to get out and bother others, for example. The book was well edited and it wasn't too repetitive for what must have been a day-to-day battle with boredom.
