    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

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

    Yes, the reader did a great job of keeping the listener engaged in the characters and the story did the rest.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dante, because I learned more about him than I previously knew and the book made me want to go back and read The Divine Comedy again.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think so. I recognized his voice. I think he did a wonderful job of keeping all the characters' voices distinct and interesting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, but I didn't have the time to do it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Dan Brown's historical information that weaves its way into the meat of the story. Learning new information about all the paces you visit in the story makes the reader want to go there and visit each place in person.

    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    What made the experience of listening to Running Blind the most enjoyable?

    Great story - one could never quite get a handle on who was the bad guy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Running Blind?

    Gosh how to pick one memorable moment. I guess when the chaplain walked up and you found out that the Colonel was not THE bad guy.


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan McClain – was your favorite?

    I liked Harper - she was smart, sexy, a bit of a tease.


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

    Don't forget to trust your own instincts.....


    Any additional comments?

    Don't want to give anything away - I never agreed with the profiler's description of who the killer was likely to be.

  • Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power

    Rachel Maddow's Drift argues that we've drifted away from America's original ideals and become a nation weirdly at peace with perpetual war, with all the financial and human costs that entails. Sensible yet provocative, dead serious yet seriously funny, Drift will reinvigorate a "loud and jangly" political debate about how, when, and where to apply America's strength and power - and who gets to make those decisions.

    The action begins six days after a series of explosions devastated Washington, D.C., targeting the National Counterterrorism Center and killing 185 people, including public officials and CIA employees. It was a bizarre act of extreme violence that called for extreme measures on the part of elite counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp and his trusted team member, Mike Nash.

    Vince Flynn - keep these books coming. A great cast of characters. Unbelievably resilient in the face of danger; able to keep going while injured and exhausted; just the right amount of humor to keep the ridiculous at bay. love George Guidall as the narrator.

    Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks....

    The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution.

    These books should never be read by anyone other than George Guidall. He makes these stories and the characters come to life. Mitch Rapp is so much more than a hero...he is invincible, conscientous, honorable, and ruthless with his enemies. A very fun book to listen to while taking road trips. Engaging.

    The “Prey” novels by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Sandford consistently make the best-seller lists, but they are not for the faint of heart. Featuring Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, these thrillers are raw, graphic, and impossible to put down. In Eyes of Prey, a depressed and unfocused Davenport takes on a macabre case, tracking down a serial killer who maims the eyes of his victims after he has murdered them.

    Janet says: "Lucas Davenport, #1 reason to move to Minnesota!"

    The mastermind of these murders is really creepy. The eyes of the victims must be destroyed so the dead cannot watch him and haunt him later. A compelling story but very difficult to read at times.

    The "maddog" murderer who is terrorizing the Twin Cities is two things: insane and extremely intelligent. He kills for the pleasure of it and thoroughly enjoys placing elaborate obstacles to keep police befuddled. Each clever move he makes is another point of pride. But when the brilliant Lieutenant Lucas Davenport, a dedicated cop and a serial killer's worst nightmare, is brought in to take up the investigation, the maddog suddenly has an adversary worthy of his genius.

    Story

    Davenport is many sided. He seems so civilized and then he beats the stuffing out of someone. The anger he carries is barely under control and then he can be warm, charming, sexy, intelligent, romantic, and sensitive at the same time. One of his longtime, close friends is a nun. He dresses well, drives a Porsche and designs internet games. And in the end, he figures out the crime and the perpetrator of the crime, carries on a romance or two and shows a man struggling to live with his shortcomings.

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Story

    The story has lots of twists and turns and keeps the listener off balance. You just think you have it figured out and then Baldacci throws another curve. The only downer is Stone's anguish over his responsibility for everyone's else's problems i.e. injuries sustained by his friends while helping him. They are willingly involved in his life and his activites. He is a hero, for sure, but it is tiresome to hear over and over about this anguish. The readers do a fantastic job of presenting this book and it definitely is entertaining and worth one's time and money.

    In 1964, a newly married Canadian couple settle into a houseboat on the Nile just below Abu Simbel. Avery is one of the engineers responsible for the dismantling and reconstruction of the temple, a "machine-worshipper" who is nonetheless sensitive to their destructive power. Jean is a botanist by vocation, passionately interested in everything that grows. They met on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, witnessing the construction of the Seaway as it swallowed towns, homes, and lives.

    Story

    The reader did the best she could to make the characters come to life, but the writer was so busy making their inbteractions poetic, profound and thoughtful that she failed to make them warm and real. She spent alot of time making lists of every nuance that the whole thing became tedious listening.
