    From the author of the number-one national best seller Three Cups of Tea, the continuing story of this determined humanitarian and the schools he has established. In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson recounts his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders.

    Cathleen says: "Better than Three Cups of Tea"
    "Best Book of the Year/Decade"
    Overall

    I didn't want it to end. Greg's understanding of people and selflessness is admirable. We need more Greg Mortenson's in the world. Everybody should read this book after reading Three Cups of Tea.

    In her dazzling new novel--her first in more than a decade--Moore turns her eye on the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, on the insidiousness of racism, the blind-sidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love.

    Wendy says: "Great Writing - Not Great Book"
    "Wonderful - humerous"
    Overall

    A wonderful writer who uses the English language like a painting. Humerous and touching.

    Seven-year-old Autumn Backman has a gift: she can communicate telepathically with others. Not everyone, mind you, but with a select few with whom she shares a special kinship. When Autumn and her mother, Joanna, take her father's ashes to be buried in the family plot in Brickers Bowl, Georgia, she witnesses a horrifying sight: her grandmother and two uncles, burying a pile of dead bodies in the middle of the night.

    Lehua says: "Predictable all the way"
    "Thrilling!"
    Overall

    Great book with a mystical twist.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "One of the best books"
    Overall

    This is by FAR one of the best books I have ever read. It will stay with me forever.

    From the best selling author of When the Wind Blows and Kiss the Girls comes an explosive tale of terrorism on Wall Street. New York City is under siege by a secret militia group - with deep ties to our own military - and that's just the beginning of the relentless terror.

    Eileen says: "Patterson not at his best"
    "Not his best"
    Overall

    Good book, but a little hard to follow. James Patterson has done a lot better.
