    In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, Belfort narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.

    This book is a mess. I thought it would be a book about wall street like Den of Thieves. Boy was I wrong! Its just a book about a coke snorting idiot and his personal problems.

    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    I got this book because Audible recommended it and I love New Orleans. I was very disapppointed. Its not a bad story, but I just couldn't get into it and really didn't care about the charicters.

    In Chatter, Patrick Radden Keefe investigates the international eavesdropping alliance known as Echelon, sorting facts from conspiracy theories to determine just how much privacy Americans unknowingly sacrifice in the name of greater security.

    "Below expectations"
    Overall

    Wow! You mean the government is listening to us? I had no idea. The book has a few interesting points to make but it jumps around too much.

    "Economic hit men," John Perkins writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder."

    Robert P. says: "Excellent Story for people have traveled"
    "So bad I can't finish it!"
    Overall

    The narration is horrible. The writing is flat and boring. But besides that, the author only has one point to make and he keeps making the same point over and over again. If you listen to the first two chapters you have basically read the whole book.

    In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems Backman, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most sophisticated satellite surveillance system.

    Bull says: "Grisham wins a bet."
    "Grisham doesn't know how to write a good spy novel"
    Overall

    This book was a bit disappointing. I expect court room drama from Grisham not a spy novel. I have read some very good spy novels which made reading this book an absolute bore ? except for the travel. While this was not a true spy novel, it had enough badly written cloak and dagger stuff in it to make it frustrating. I?d like to recommend to Mr. Grisham that he let Tom Clancy write the spy novels.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries-old underground organization, the Illuminati. Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    Phillip says: "I couldn't put it down...5 STARS"
    "Not bad but"
    Overall

    This is not a bad book but after the Davinci Code it was a bit dissaponting. Also, like in the Davinci Code, by the end I am thinking just end the darn thing already. Brown tells a good story, but REALLY drags out the ending.

    In Los Angeles in 1988, a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home and was later found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest. The death appeared at first to be a suicide, but some of the evidence contradicted that scenario, and detectives came to believe this was in fact a murder. Despite a by-the-book investigation, no one was ever charged.

    Wheelman says: "Thoroughly enjoyable....."
    "Fun!"
    Overall

    If you are a Harry Bosch fan, you'll enjoy this book. Harry comes back to the LAPD and goes to work on a cold case in the manner we have come to expect.

    With vividly realized characters and a breathtaking pace, Last Man Standing is another spellbinding title from David Baldacci, best selling author of Wish You Well. When the FBI Hostage Rescue Team is ambushed, it is up to sole survivor Web London to find the killer.

    Chad says: "Great book"
    "Good read as long as you overlook some faults"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed it and found it hard to put down. If you like action-packed thrillers, you will love this book. There were a lot of plot twists that I didn't anticipate, which I enjoyed, and I liked the fact that not everything got wrapped up neatly at the end - it was more realistic that way.

    However, the dialogue and characters are embarrassing--every male character is either enormous, unbelievably handsome, or has been through more firefights than they can count. Many of the characters are two dimensional and flat as are some the character interaction. The dialogue does not feel realistic, and about halfway through the book the effort to suspend disbelief gets to be a real struggle.

    Last Man Standing is a good read as long as you are able to overlook some typical faults.
