    Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, two ranch hands, come together when they're working as sheepherder and camp tender one summer on a range above the tree line. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer.

    When a murdered woman is found in the city of Beszel, somewhere at the edge of Europe, it looks to be a routine case for Inspector Tyador Borlof the Extreme Crime Squad. But as he investigates, the evidence points to conspiracies far stranger and more deadly than anything he could have imagined. Borl must travel from the decaying Beszel to the only metropolis on Earth as strange as his own.

    Monotone and confusing with no sense of meaningful direction. Such a waste. Wish I could ask for a refund.

    The book was intriguing but not all that different than his other books. Familiarity breeds repetitiveness. Good writing but not significantly different than his other books.

    Don't look up. It won't help. You can't get out of the way; you can't dig a hole deep enough to hide. The end is coming, and there's nothing you can do about it. So why listen to this audiobook? Because you can't cover your ears when it's not just the religious fanatics who are saying we're all going to be destroyed, but the scientists are in on the act, too.

    Thomas W. Smith says: "Overpriced"
    "Interesting but tedious"
    Overall

    I found this an interesting but skewed review of some of the 2012 theories. Rather than a true scientific review, I think it was definitely advocating the legitimacy of the 2012 apocolyptic ideas. Not to say that they may not be valid, which we will soon find out. What I fear is that all of the 2012 talk may indeed help the prophecies to come true. If you are interested in this idea, then by all means explore this book. But it is hardly worth the price charged. Wait for the paperback or get a used copy.

    Seattle, 2040. The Space Needle lies crumpled. Veiled women hurry through the busy streets. Alcohol is outlawed, replaced by Jihad Cola, and mosques dot the skyline. New York and Washington, D.C., are nuclear wastelands. Phoenix is abandoned, Chicago the site of a civil war battle. At the edges of the empire, Islamic and Christian forces fight for control of a very different United States.

    Paul says: "An excellent thriller"
    "Odd flow"
    Overall

    Interesting concept, but not enthralling execution. The book seems sort of helter skelter or even disassociated.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    chris says: "Entertained"
    "predictable & typical"
    Overall

    Classical Stephen King. More of the same. Reads like a formula. Very similar to all the others.

    If you are a healer, or know someone who is, then you are probably well aware of the enormous challenges of this life path. Choosing to be a healer, teaches Caroline Myss, comes with serious spiritual and energetic demands, and it is crucial to understand and prepare for them.

    Lori Paul says: "A Must for Myss Fans"
    "not essential"
    Overall

    Total waste of time. Just a lot of dribble without any substance. Don't waste your time or money.
