  • The Shipkiller: A Novel

    Story

    Before he was anointed to carry on the legacy of Robert Ludlum's Janson Command series, and before he collaborated with Clive Cussler on the fan favorite Isaac Bell series, Justin Scott created this suspenseful adventure tale, a novel of love and revenge set on the high seas. Written in 1978, this is considered by many to be one of the best maritime thrillers of all time. As an expert in the world of ships and sailing, Justin Scott creates an authentic maritime world, making The Shipkiller all the more thrilling because it could be a true story.

    Story

    The story was engaging, and the author did a very good job with the technical aspects of ocean sailing and seamanship. If you enjoy tales of adventure on the high seas, I think this book will appeal to you.

    An orphan's life is harsh---and often short---in the island city of Camorr, built on the ruins of a mysterious alien race. But born with a quick wit and a gift for thieving, Locke Lamora has dodged both death and slavery, only to fall into the hands of an eyeless priest known as Chains---a man who is neither blind nor a priest. A con artist of extraordinary talent, Chains passes his skills on to his carefully selected "family" of orphans---a group known as the Gentlemen Bastards.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters were colorful, the settings and storyline were richly complex, and the voices the reader used both fit the material and allowed the listener to easily keep track of who was speaking. Recommended.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Story

    I've thoroughly enjoyed this series of books. As others have mentioned, Mockingjay is the darkest installment of the three; rebellions are violent events that often involve a heavy toll. Given that, I wasn't expecting "...and they all lived happily ever after.", but hoped that some good would come of things. Suzanne did not disappoint me.

  • The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress

    Story
    (1691)

    In what is considered one of Heinlein's most hair-raising, thought-provoking, and outrageous adventures, the master of modern science fiction tells the strange story of an even stranger world. It is 21st-century Luna, a harsh penal colony where a revolt is plotted between a bashful computer and a ragtag collection of maverick humans, a revolt that goes beautifully until the inevitable happens. But that's the problem with the inevitable: it always happens.

    Peter says: "Heinlein's Masterpiece"

    Story

    Heinlein's story of revolution on the moon ropes you in early and holds your interest to the last page. Lloyd James did an outstanding job of narrating this book - the character voices were so colorfully varied that it was easy to forget that he was the only person reading.
