    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    Douglas says: "Great adventure! Hard to put down."
    "You'll keep thinking about it long after finishing"
    Overall

    Absolutely amazing, thought provoking and chillingly real. An updated version of a timeless novel by one of the great authors of this century! The book starts quickly and keeps going and going!

    There's a killer on the loose in San Francisco, and he's stalking newlyweds. When the usual procedures to stop him don't work, four women, each holding a piece of the puzzle, form a Women's Murder Club to collaborate outside the box and pursue the case. 1st to Die is the start of a new series of crime thrillers from James Patterson.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is so fast paced and such a great listen! The co-narration is fantastic, makes you feel like it is really happening, I would recommend this book to everyone!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The cool thing about listening to Zero Day is you know "something" is going to happen and yet you never really are prepared for what happens. Great on the edge of your seat suspense!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One of my favorite scenes is the end, can't say anymore!

    This is one of the more interesting Bosch books. Connelley does a great job bringing Irving back into the picture and shows a softer side of Bosch. The story is fantastic and sit at the edge of your seat suspensful!

But their 16-year-old son, Adam, has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate, Spencer Hill they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

    Meanwhile, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death...and he wasn't alone.

    Spanish Phase 1, Units 11-15 build on material taught in prior units. Each lesson provides 30 minutes of spoken language practice, with an introductory conversation, and new vocabulary and structures. Detailed instructions enable you to understand and participate in the conversation.

    If you could sum up Spanish Phase 1, Unit 11-15 in three words, what would they be?

    By the time I finished these units I was conversting about food and drinks in Spanish and felt confident!


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The best thing about pimsleur is its subtle progression, you don;t realize until you are well into Unit 11 that the gap of time for you to translate is shorter and you are actually translating faster!

    Ellen DeGeneres published her first book of comic essays, the #1 best selling My Point...and I Do Have One, way back in 1996. Not one to rest on her laurels, the witty star of stage and screen has since dedicated her life to writing a hilarious new book. That book is this audiobook.

    In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged.

    Wheelman says: "Thoroughly enjoyable....."
    "Welcome Back Harry Bosch"
    Overall

    This is one of the best Bosch series books, the best thing Connelley could do was get him back on the force and partners with Kis! I missed Harry on the force, and think many of us did. The book revolves around a 17 year old unsolved case of a young girl murdered. The story reminds us Harry is a bit rusty and Connelley craftilly shows us Harry's vulnerabilities while still keeping him gruff.
