    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    Interesting behind the scenes look at Tina Fey. Fairly funny. Her reading improves the experience since she adds personal feeling to the account.

    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    William says: "A great novel nearly ruined by the reader."
    "Action Packed, but no ending!"

    Story

    Good story, lots of action, but no real surprises, except for the lack of a real ending!

    Narration was good, Nick Sullivan does a very consistent job, you know who is talking based on his voice, very good.

    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    Story

    Wow, the narration was just fine, the other reviews were used to another narrator, but Nick Sullivan does a very good job.

    The story was action packed and you got everyone's perspective. I felt like this character must have been the precursor to Jack Bauer and the 24 series, quite a similar feel - great nonetheless.

    Can't wait to read/listen to book 2!

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Ron says: "Very Enjoyable Grisham"

    I liked the idea of the story, but in the end it was very predictable. The narration was decent.

    Story

    The first two books in this series were good, not as good as the reviews here, but good.

    This book is nonsensical. Characters are thrown away without any common sense, the main character's hero complex is blindly followed by adults in the story... totally unbelievable. This here has no special ability, no super powers, just a bad attitude and severe mental issues... but that is good enough for characters to just dash after her to their demise.

    Then to top it off, the goose chase in the last 2/3 of the book comes to an end with a big empty nothing.

    The ending was okay, but the first 3/4 is like wading through trash.

    The narration was excellent at times.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Story

    First off - the audio performance is extraordinary.

    Second - This is the best Harry Bosch story I've heard so far... Unfortunately I never heard of Bosch until I started reading about Mickey Haller, so I have read a bunch of Bosch's stories in the wrong order.

    Congrats, albeit belated, on a great book!
