    Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is investigating the bizarre slaying of Katie Bishop, a member of Brighton's social elite. Her husband Brian appears to be in the clear - he was in another town at the time, sound asleep. But Grace begins to suspect the presence of a doppelganger: is someone else - almost identical to Bishop - involved in the crime?

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fuzzy Nation to be better than the print version?

    Better if you drive a lot. I also enjoy holding a book and sitting in my chair to read.


    What other book might you compare Fuzzy Nation to and why?

    Little Fuzzy, which was twinned with Fuzzy Nation.


    Have you listened to any of Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. well read.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't...I prefer books.

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    Old Hippy says: "Absolutely Terrific!"

    What disappointed you about Chiefs?

    I haven't been able to listen to this. The reader sounds slobbery and it detracts from the whole. I've tried 3 times and just couldn't enjoy it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have read several books by Stuart Woods and like his products.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mark Hammer’s performances?

    No, thank you.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Stuart Woods is a very readable author.


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I could find another version read by a different reader.

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    Gene says: "Transcends its Genre"
    "Most delightful"
    Overall

    The characters in Mr. Smith's Botswana are so well drawn. Precious is more than precious, she is practically super woman. I enjoyed the HBO series and searched for more of the tales. Fortunately, there are more. This is one of those series that you don't tire of before the author tires of writing the "same old stuff'." Lisette Lecat narrated perfectly for this book. I am very pleased.

    Elodie journeys to the town of Two Castles to become a mansioner - an actress - but the master of the troupe turns her away. Brilliant dragon Meenore takes her in, then sends her on a dangerous mission within an ogre’s castle. There, disguised as a kitchen maid, she plays the role of a lifetime, pitted against a foe intent on murder. Black-and-white cats, a handsome cat trainer, a greedy king, a giddy princess, a shape-shifting ogre, a brilliant dragon.... Elodie must discover which of them is kind, which is cruel, and, most of all, which is the one who deserves her trust.

    Jess says: "Good Story, Annoying Narrator!"
    "Enjoyable"
    Overall

    Her tale was well thought out and enjoyable. Look forward to a sequel. I have found myself drawn to young adult and teen reading material. Not so much tension about sex...in fact not so much overplayed sex.

    Montese Crandall is a downtrodden writer whose rare collection of baseball cards won't sustain him, financially or emotionally, through the grave illness of his wife. Luckily, he swindles himself a job churning out a novelization of the 2025 remake of a 1963 horror classic, "The Crawling Hand." Crandall tells therein of the United States, in a bid to regain global eminence, launching at last its doomed manned mission to the desolation of Mars.

    Aaron says: "Like Pynchon, DF Wallace, PK Dick, Palahniuk?"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    The author is full of himself. He tells a supposed tale that gives all appearances to be just about him. I haven't read his bio, so I don't know for sure, but listening to someone talk about himself is BORING

  • Misquoting Jesus

    When world-class biblical scholar Bart Ehrman first began to study the texts of the Bible in their original languages he was startled to discover the multitude of mistakes and intentional alterations that had been made by earlier translators. In Misquoting Jesus, Ehrman tells the story behind the mistakes and changes that ancient scribes made to the New Testament and shows the great impact they had upon the Bible we use today.

    R. J. Monts says: "a (mostly) balanced discussion"
    "Misleading title."
    Overall

    This book sounds like it may be apologetics. It isn't. I believe in Jesus. He doesn't.
