    The year is 1946, and all over the world, young women are crossing the seas in the thousands en route to the men they married in wartime. In Australia, four women join 650 other brides on a voyage to England, aboard the HMS Victoria, which also carries 1,000 naval officers and men. Rules of honour, duty, and separation are strictly enforced, from the captain down to the lowliest young stoker. But the men and the brides will find their lives intertwined in ways the Navy could never have imagined.

    Laurie says: "A nice read"
    "The Ship of Brides"
    Overall

    My second book from Jojo Moyes. This one is just as good as the first. Right up to the suprise ending.

    When Elspeth Noblin dies of cancer, she leaves her London apartment to her twin nieces, Julia and Valentina. These two American girls never met their English aunt; they only knew that their mother, too, was a twin, and Elspeth her sister. Julia and Valentina are semi-normal American teenagers - with seemingly little interest in college, finding jobs, or anything outside their cozy home in the suburbs of Chicago, and with an abnormally intense attachment to one another.

    A User says: "What a waste"
    "Great read"
    Overall

    Picked this book on a whim; it was a great read. Good story line with interesting characters. Sorry to see them go when it was finished.

    One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and an unparalleled ability to tell the stories of his life. "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" is Feynman's last literary legacy, prepared with his friend and fellow drummer, Ralph Leighton.

    Overall

    This is the second Feynman book I have enjoyed in Audio. He is a delightful man, the narration is good, the subject material intersting. I recommend his books as a good relief to the thrillers and crime stories I am usually ordering.

    In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time: Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

    Karl says: "An education and inspiration"
    "Recommended by a friend . . ."
    Overall

    I would never have chosen this book, but after listening to it I was ready for it to continue . . . I see now that Greg Mortenson's next is due out Dec 1st. I'll be in line for that one. Thanks to my friends rave review I listened and found it educational and facinating and very timely.

    In the heart of North Carolina's Research Triangle stands a corporate laboratory much like the others nearby. But behind its walls, America's top scientists work around the clock to attain the holy grail of the 21st century - a supercomputer that surpasses the power of the human mind.

    Overall

    Not Greg Iles at his best, I was surprised that this is the first of his work that I have not thoroughly enjoyed. Predicable.

    When she was 18 years old, Carolyn Jessop was coerced into an arranged marriage with a total stranger - a man 32 years her senior. Merril Jessop already had three wives. But arranged plural marriages were an integral part of Carolyn's heritage: She was born into and raised in the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), the radical offshoot of the Mormon Church.
