    Conservative talk radio's fastest-growing superstar is also a New York Times best-selling phenomenon: the author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lover's memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the book that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers.

    Lenell says: "Conservatism, classical liberalism's heir apparent"
    "A Book to make you think!"
    Overall

    Mark Levin on his talk show, is confrontational and controversial. Informative and entertaining. The book shows a different side of Mark. He's obviously a thinker and is very well informed about the United States' Protestant, therefore Judeo Christian, roots. These roots grew a tree under the shade of which the world rested. Whose branches held the world's poor and down-trodden. We, I speak as a naturalized Citizen (ex-Scot), the U.S., are now, and have been for a long time, under attack by the Statists. They are the natural enemy of all who love freedom and order. Mark brings into focus what we know to be true and makes it so clear. It's like putting 3D glasses on and seeing a whole new dimension! Democrats, socialists,national socialists, communists,greens,tree-huggers,environementalists,secularists,atheists, are seeking to control every aspect of our lives. Incrementalism is the tactic. Read/listen the book!

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    "A good listen"
    Overall

    I,d never heard of the book until they made a TV series out of it. The book is well written and superbly read. Better, as usual, than the TV Movie.

    The preceding novel in the George Smiley series (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) ended with the devastating unmasking of a double agent at the heart of the British Secret Service. Now, in The Honourable Schoolboy, George Smiley, who has assumed the unenviable job of restoring the health and reputation of his demoralized organization, goes on the offensive. He searches for a whisper, a hint, a clue that will lead him back to his opposite number: Karla, a Soviet officer in Moscow.

    Iain says: "A wonderful cold war thriller"
    "too poofy"
    Overall

    The narrator's voice is way too sarcastic and poofy to enjoy Le Carre,s spy masterpiece. Get a more manly narrator, no girly-boys!

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    F says: "Did I read the same book as some of you?"
    "great read"
    Overall

    I almost did not read this due to the wacki reviews of some of the reviewers. Many of us do believe that global warming is just a bunch of hot air(pun intended). This is a story that questions the thesis that man has caused global warming. Michael Crichton, does not seem to come down on eiither side of this issue.
    As for the supposed stomach noises the reader is accused of,there are none. There are a few electronic noises, which are not a problem.
    All scientists do not believe in the global warming theory.
    The data as shown by Crichton's graphs does not support this theory.
    If you include Social, Psychiatric, Medical, Rocket, Biological, Mechanical and other scientists, irrelevant to the theory, then maybe, only maybe, you might have a "scientific" majority held view, positive to global warming. These scientists know less than the average well informed and intelligent subscriber to Audible.
    One large volcano eruption can do more damage to the ozone layer than a thousand years of using Freon to keep ourselves cool. Follow the money. The makers of Freon are about to lose their patent. They contribute to powerful Democrats re-election funds. They, in turn outlaw Freon. The same company introduces a new gas for use in air-conditioners. Hey-presto! Everyone makes lots of money. Very similar to the book's thesis. Great story. Well read
