    Dupont University: the Olympian halls of learning housing the cream of America's youth, the roseate Gothic spires and manicured lawns suffused with tradition....Or so it appears to beautiful, brilliant Charlotte Simmons, a sheltered freshman from North Carolina, who has come here on full scholarship. But Charlotte soon learns, to her mounting dismay, that for the upper-crust coeds of Dupont, sex, Cool, and kegs trump academic achievement every time.

    This is the best production of an audio book I have heard. Excellent audio quality, fantastic characterization of the protagonist by the reader, and excellent story all add up to make this a great audio book.

    Four years ago, LAPD detective Harry Bosch was on a movie set, asking questions about the murder of a young production assistant, when an armored car arrived with $2 million cash for use in a heist scene. In a life-imitates-art firestorm, a gang of masked men converged on the delivery and robbed the armored car with guns blazing. The crime was never resolved, and the young woman's murder was in the stack of unsolved-case files Bosch carried home the night he left the LAPD.

    Harris says: "Dashel Hammet Redux"

    This guy can write! Probably the best detective/murder mystery stories available anywhere.

    The messages waiting for Henry Pierce when he plugs in his new phone clearly aren't intended for him. They indicate something has gone terribly wrong for a woman named Lilly. Pierce probes, investigates, and then tumbles through a hole, leaving behind a life driven by work to track down and help a woman he's never met. Connelly's latest is "a grabber from the beginning...utterly compelling."

    David says: "Nobody Could Be That Stupid That Many Times!"
    "Thrilling"
    Overall

    A real rollercoaster ride with believable people and great story.

    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    In Washington, a newly elected young president faces a test that will focus the national spotlight on abortion, parental consent, backroom politics, and the battle over one woman's nomination as chief justice of the Supreme Court. It's high-stakes drama as only Richard North Patterson can present it! Browse more Patterson.

    Fully addresses all of the issues in an intelligent, caring and insightful discourse. We could only wish our good politicians were as good as the good ones in the book. Superb reading.

    Fifty-nine days. That's how long Rennell Price has to live after spending 15 years on death row for the horrifying sexual assault and murder of a girl whose body was found floating in San Francisco Bay. But attorney Terri Paget has dedicated her life to fighting for people like Rennell Price. This time, Terri has a client she believes may actually be innocent, which means that an unpunished killer may still be free.

    I am currently listening to Degree of Guilt which is highly recommended. I was wondering what happens to Terri as the book progresses and now I know. Great author with a great sense of human interaction.

    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    Edmund says: "You love it or hate it...."
    "Absolutely Hillarious"
    Overall

    A huge cast of characters all get their just desserts in great listen. I just love the vocalizations given to Hiaasin's books by George Wilson. Learned something about hurricanes, too.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    David says: "First For Me"
    "Florida's Edward Abbey"
    Overall

    It is fun to learn about Florida's environmental challenges woven around such colorful characters. Kinda funny about bass fishing too.

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    Phillip says: "Summer's Best Read"
    "Very Funny"
    Overall

    This is my first book by this author and I am just thrilled with it. The reading is wonderful with the characters taking on their own personalities. The reading for the character of "Tool" is especially well done.
