    I can't believe I let this book sit in my wish list for over two years based on user reviews of the reader. Obviously they have never experienced a bad or mediocre reader. Lorna Raver was perfect. I liked her subtle Maine accent. I had no problems trying to figure out the characters. She had great voices for all.

    I read the book back when it came out in hardbound. It was good then. It’s still good now. King’s character development in his early days can’t be beat.

    I spent a whole day playing solitaire on my computer listening to the end of the book. I couldn’t put it down (or stop listening).

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world. But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels, NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help.

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Jimmy says: "Epic, Remarkable, Easy & Enjoyable!"
    "Wish I could give this book more than 5 stars..."

    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Really entertaining… listened to it in two days… couldn’t put it down (or away)…

    I especially enjoyed the short story of the Reacher brothers in their teens included at the end.

    Dick Hill is Jack Reacher!

    Whoever decided to cast Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher in the upcoming movie obviously has not read the series… He does not fit my mental image at all.

    The year is 1878, peak of the Texas cattle trade. The place is Dodge City, Kansas, a saloon-filled cow town jammed with liquored-up adolescent cowboys and young Irish hookers. Violence is random and routine, but when the burned body of a mixed-blood boy named Johnnie Sanders is discovered, his death shocks a part-time policeman named Wyatt Earp. And it is a matter of strangely personal importance to Doc Holliday, the frail 26-year-old dentist who has just opened an office at No. 24, Dodge House.

    Overall

    I remember reading on Dan Brown's web site that the next Robert Langdon novel would be out within a year or two from the Da Vinci Code. But I waited and waited and then last year the Wall Street Journal ran an article predicting when it would appear... they were over a year off...

    I believe Dan Brown worked too hard at this novel and missed the boat completely. It was a great disappointment. I had to really work at finishing it...

    The reader, Paul Michael, was great... he just didn't have a lot to work with...

    I have read and/or listened to all Dan Brown's novels (and enjoyed all 4 of them) but after listening to "The Lost Symbol" I feel that I've lost yet another favorite author to commercialism. How sad... but luckily there are a lot of other (and new) authors to hitch my star to...

    Sorry but...

    Goodbye Dan Brown

    You were great while you lasted...

    In 1866 tragedy strikes at the exclusive Windfield School when a mysterious accident takes the life of a student. Among the student's circle of friends are Hugh Pilaster; Hugh's older cousin Edward, dissolute heir to the Pilaster banking fortune; and Micky Miranda, the handsome son of a brutal South American oligarchy. The death and its aftermath begin the spiraling circle of treachery that will span three decades and entwine many lives.

    My first experience was Pillars of the Earth followed by World without End and then every non espionage novel of his that I could find... I have not been disappointed...
