    It was the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal had redefined American politics. Taxes were at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had created a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business had many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom was diminishing... and many were desperate to take that freedom back.

    Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to deliver an evening lecture in the U.S. Capitol. Within minutes of his arrival, the night takes a bizarre turn. A disturbing object is discovered in the Capitol Building. The object is an ancient invitation, meant to usher its recipient into a long-lost world of hidden esoteric wisdom. And when Langdon's mentor is kidnapped, Langdon's only hope of saving him is to accept this invitation and follow wherever it leads him.

    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    Robert Langdon just because i've grown so attached to the character and have even developed a little crush, lol. The Moloch character was pretty awesome. Paul Michael is amazingggggggggggggggggggggg


    Any additional comments?

    i really wanted to like this book. I enjoyed DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons tremendously. i don't think this is a ****SPOILER ALERT*****










    ****SPOILER ALERT*****
    but just in case, i'll put it down here so as not to mess with anyone :)
    The big Twist...the Big Secret... to me is was sooooooooooooooooooooo AntiClimatic. The secret that will change/destroy the world forever was the biggest flop to me :( and the book was pretty good until then. In fact, i can't remember if it's before or after, there is one moment in the book that was amazing!!!!!!!! i didn't see it coming, and my jaw literally dropped open.
    i really feel bad because there is like an hour left of the book, and i really don't feel like listening to it. The big reveal was just so disappointing.

  • Stuck with a Stiff: The Stuck with a Series, Book 1

    The Stuck with a... Series is Castle-gone-country with the mom squad, Betty Boop, and My Cousin Vinny in the barnyard. But this ain't no ordinary barnyard. There's a lot more than a crazy rooster missing from the chicken coop, a bad ass cow causing a bunch of trouble, and a dog looking like a creature out of a storybook. There's a stiff too. A stiff - as in a dead guy - in a snow drift near the chicken coop. Things aren't lookin' too good for Nicky Blane, who owns the farm....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I think it was the narrator that bugged me, but maybe it was the writing, i just found the main character so annoying. It reminds me of the Stephanie Plum series, which i like the idea of, but find her weakness and sillyishness very unappealing. If you like that series though, you will probably like this one.


    Has Stuck with a Stiff turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, i was trying them out for the first time, and probably the last.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator could have been more down to earth and not tried so hard
