    Ireland 1963. As the Irish people prepare to welcome President John F. Kennedy to the land of his ancestors, a German national is murdered in a seaside guesthouse. Lieutenant Albert Ryan, Directorate of Intelligence, is ordered to investigate. The German is the third foreigner to die within a few days, and Minister for Justice Charles Haughey wants the killing to end lest, a shameful secret be exposed: the dead men were all Nazis granted asylum by the Irish government in the years following World War II.

    Hard to follow. Good reader.

    Not about WWII or much about Ireland.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None.


    Do you think Ratlines needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No! One bad , confusing book should not be followed by another.

And now they are united in their desire to hunt down the traitor who abducted two women both men would die to protect: Reddy's love, nurse Sandra Tucker, and young Princess Rebecca of the New British Empire. But first they have a new battle to win. However, this battle will not be fought with broadsides and broadswords, but with cunning and intrigue.

    Would you listen to Rising Tides again? Why?

    Absolutely! I love alternative history and science fiction. This is the best of both worlds. World War II is a favorite of mine and quantum physics is a great way to bring about a change in history.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a continuing story that gave you a chance to get to know and form an attachment to the charachters.


    Which character – as performed by William Dufris – was your favorite?

    My favorite, i guess, was the irrepressible Dennis Sylva.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me do both in turn as you experienced the continuing struggles of the main characters with whom you had formed a bond.

    Story
    (5156)

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Under the Dome to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print verson, so I can't say, but I have fallen in love with audio books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspense of what caused the dome.


    What about Raul Esparza’s performance did you like?

    He gave each character a distinct sound and feeling.


    If you could take any character from Under the Dome out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The town sherrif who died early in the storly line becuase he understoop his people best and could have given me the most likely senario on what was going to happen.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very good, but I guess I am a little old fashioned and believe it should be (if it were a movie shoud be rated "R" for adult language and situations.
