    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    Where does Cross My Heart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like Patterson's writing - quick chapters, characters with depth, compelling charaters. This book held to his usual style. Not finishing a mystery book in one volume is pretty irratating, so I ranked it lower than most of works I have read lately.


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson? Why or why not?

    Of course I will read the next book!


    What about Michael Boatman and Tom Wopat ’s performance did you like?

    I liked the change in voices for the different characters. It added a lot to the story.

    If you could go back in time...and witness any event...where would you go? When Dr. Tom Greenbaum faces that question after successfully discovering the secret to time travel, he knows the time, place, and event he will witness: the death and failed resurrection of Jesus Christ. Dr. David Goodman, Tom's colleague and closest friend follows Tom into the past, attempting to avert a time-space catastrophe, but forces beyond their control toss them into a dangerous end game.

They vow to stay in contact through letters when Evie takes hold of her destiny and arranges a marriage on the sly.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mail-Order Brides of the West: Evie: McCutcheon Family Series, Book 3 to be better than the print version?

    This was a nice story with the writer and reader making it a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon experience. If you want a lot of complex characters, this isn't a book for you. However, if you just want a nice book about nice people in a beautiful area of the country, you can't do much better.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It's a little predictable, but that's OK if you just want a pleasant read without a lot of complexity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The description of the stage coach ride! I would have never survived a ride in one.


    Any additional comments?

    My great-grandmother was a mail order bride, and I have often wondered how she ever left her home and family to marry a man she didn't know. This book gave a good perspective on how these young women coped with the changes in their lives.

  • Big History: The Big Bang, Life on Earth, and the Rise of Humanity

    How is it possible for the disciplines of cosmology, geology, anthropology, biology, and history to fit together? These 48 lectures answer that question by weaving a single story from accounts of the past developed by a variety of scholarly disciplines. The result is a story stretching from the origins of the universe to the present day and beyond, in which human history is seen as part of the history of our Earth and biosphere, and the Earth's history, in turn, is seen as part of the history of the universe.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this audio lecture to others. It really makes you think about our place in the universe very differently.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The breadth of the series.


    What does Professor David Christian bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is such an articulate story teller that you get mesmerized listening to him.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The future of mankind in 1,000 years from now.


    Any additional comments?

    This series will broaden you total view of life and the world you live in.
