    Story

    There was not one character I found likable--she was too spineless, he was too nice, and all their family members were horrid.

    There was not one part of the story I found likable--They fell in love immediately, I got tired of hearing about his disability, I got tired of her putting off telling him who she was (though it would have been obvious to even a blind man,) I got tired of all their repetitious internal dialog, and I got tired of looking for even a hint of humor and finding none.

    Narrator was unbelievably dull.

    A no-nonsense detective is on the trail of the sharpest and deadliest criminal mind he has ever encountered: a serial robber who murders any and all witnesses in cold-blood.

    Story

    Usually I find Clive Cussler's books a strong 3-star listen, a combination of adventure and legend, but all this one amounted to was a very drawn-out history lesson. It didn't help that all the characters were terribly flat and that way too much time was spent on detailing automobiles and trains (obviously a passion of the authors.) The narrator, Scott Brick, didn't have much to work with here. He usually adds to the audio experience but came off just as dull as the book in this one.

    Jolie Goodman never yearned for a life in Atlanta's fast lane. All she wants is a career in real estate, and she's willing to sell shoes at Neiman Marcus over the holidays to make ends meet. But recently, her boyfriend vanished - with her car - and her search for answers leads her to some very exclusive circles. Jolie hooks up with a pair of retail fashionistas who have made crashing society bashes an art form, and soon finds herself rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous...and rubbing other body parts with one of Atlanta's most eligible bachelors!

    Story

    This way-too-long story was so uninteresting that the only character's name I could recall by the end was the dead guy. The female lead was extremely pathetic, her friends sadly neurotic, and the male lead was totally lifeless. It was more of a how-to guide if you wanted to rip off your retail employer or sneak in to a fund raiser and reap all the benefits without donating to the cause--which frankly would make a person as extremely pathetic as the heroine. Narrator was a little bland.

    I'm glad I was alone when I listened to this book because it was soooo drawn out and soooo jumbled that I involuntarily screamed out loud in frustration. Geez! This author can talk a scene to death. Narrator (who is usually okay) didn't help with his monotonous delivery.

    Out of the blue, reporter Reebie Mahoney receives a call from the former mistress of an American president, and she wants to talk - now. Dropping everything, Reebie goes to meet the woman at her apartment. As she is standing outside the door, Reebie hears gunshots coming from within. In a matter of moments the woman is dead and Reebie becomes the LAPD's chief suspect. This event is only the beginning of an elaborate cover-up designed to protect the secrets of a political dynasty.

    This book kept jumping around in time and came off as jumbled and choppy. It would take me a while to even realize the timetable had changed and I often forgot who characters were. The narrator's voices were very similar and didn't help the situation.

    The first part of the plot was a little interesting, but the second part brought what little spark there was down and the ending was just lame. The heroine spent far too much time emoting and the hero was quite unremarkable.

    Sam, a clumsy, self-conscious young woman, sets off on a journey backpacking around Australia. Some would say she was "running away". Sam would tell you she wanted to "find" herself. Whatever the reason for her travels, the very last thing she wants to "find" is love, especially after her only other disastrous experience with it.

    Story

    Started out entertaining enough but quickly lost its charm when the author put in way too much description of mundane everyday details. Also, the heroine's painful past was explained too late in the story, and since the whole book (and the heroine's odd behavior) centered on this painful past, I spent a lot of time being annoyed by her instead of sympathizing with her. The hero was a bit too tied to his parent's apron strings, actually the whole cast of characters (including the narrator) acted as if the hero/heroine were around fifteen or sixteen. Just not to my liking.

    Story

    The narrator's regional accents (Louisiana Bayou/Boston) are really, really bad and take away from a fun story full of quirky characters. The heroine whines a little too much because she's relationship-insecure, but I reread this story at least once a year and since I possibly like one book out of every hundred, I'd call it a keeper.

    I should have listened to the previous reviewer about the heroine being so terribly childish (Amazon.com). I not only found her unlikable, but the whole book as well. The hero wasn't impressive and the story drug on and on stating the same things over and over until I wanted to scream in frustration. In fact, I think I did. I also didn't care for the narrator. She had this monotonous and nasally-thing going for both males and females.

    Fifteen years ago a young Colorado Springs police officer arrested a teen runaway accused of aiding a convenience store robbery and attempted murder. She was innocent, but still served prison time briefly. Her testimony sent the real thief to jail for much longer. Now she's a young widow raising a son, and the man she put in prison is free - and seeking revenge.

    This was more of a drawn out tale about single parents raising teenage children. There were brief mentions of a comic-book style villain and the "showdown" ending was unfortunately very, very lame.

    Story

    Ninety-five percent of this book consisted of the characters talking or thinking...repetitive words and/or thoughts. Only five percent was anyone actually DOING anything. The sad part was that the five percent was quite enjoyable--however, it was just too little to carry the story. Narrator was good though and helped me make it to the end.
