    It was a case that haunts Bobby Dodge to this day - the case that nearly killed him and changed his life forever. Now, the gruesome discovery of six mummified corpses resurrects his worst nightmare: the return of a killer he thought dead and buried.

    At the beginning, I didn't think that i was going to like this book. But as time went on, I got really attached to each of the main characters and was engrossed in the book up until the unforseen twist at the end. I even felt a little tear well up inside me at the end. I enjoyed every minute of this book, and the surprise twist at the end...no one likes surprises, but this one made a great book better.

    On the eve of a secret military operation, an assassin's bullet strikes President Seth Jerrison. He is rushed to the hospital, where surgeons struggle to save his life. At the same hospital, researcher Dr. Ranjip Singh is experimenting with a device that can erase traumatic memories. Then a terrorist bomb detonates. In the operating room, the president suffers cardiac arrest. He has a near-death experience - but the memories that flash through Jerrison's mind are not his memories.

    Story

    Because the storyline is too far-fetched to be a reality, I found the characters accepted what was happening way, way too fast. It became predictable way too early, and I would never finish this book because too many characters came into play and I knew I would never be able to like any of them. Maybe if character development was given more of a priority then the "why" i would feel inclined to press on..but it was too shallow for my liking. Pass

    Story

    I purchased this book thinking that because it got an audible award that it was going to be a decent read, but the comparison to "Jason Bourne" doesn't fit. I constantly found myself drifting away while listening, and because the pace is so dreadfully slow, i got bored on numerous occasions. I never found myself gripping with anxiety, and with the lack of suspense that I was mislead to believe I would be feeling, I don't really understand how this got an award as high as it did. This book has a compelling storyline, but because it takes so painfully long to tell, because in between the storyline, the "memory-lane" and "love" side stories made me drift and at most times forget "what were we trying to do now?" If your expecting "action", and "suspense", and "gripping storytelling"...many other books do a better job at that. At most this is a character-developing novel, preparing for sequels, with a poor mystery storyline hidden in the quagmire of history recounting and "love lost-refound love side stories. I was not happy with this book. Heck, while writing this review the book is playing as noise in the background. It took way too long to complete, and feel like it was a waste of time. Better books do a better job at what this one tried to do, and i would be hard-pressed to start another book under this character.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    I cannot imagine any narrator better suited to read Adrian McKinty books other than Gerard Doyle. Mr. Doyle has a way of inflecting the tone of the book in the way he reads. Because of that, Gerard wants you to be a part of the book more than just the listener, and if the event calls for the character to "sneak up" or be "stealthy", then he reads to reflect that mood. He reads quieter. If there are action sequences, he reads to reflect anxiety. These moods I feel as I listen and its awesome. I felt during many parts of the read the "suspense was killing me", and it was all how it was read by Mr. Doyle. It was amazing. There are many suspense moments that leave you feeling gratified at the end, and will want you to find out "what happens next". This was another outstanding title by Mr. McKinty, and I am hooked. I have read or listened to almost every book by this great author and I have never been disappointed. I am and will continue to be a dedicated fan. And as far as I'm concerned, Gerard Doyle is one of my most favorite narrators, and he can do no wrong. The way the ending of this book was set up, I cannot wait for another in the series involving this "new" hero. A perfect read. You will not be disappointed. And as with his other books, Mr. McKinty continues to picture Ireland in such a way where you will wonder "did I ever visit, because I feel like I did". Amazing. Outstanding. Perfect.

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Story

    I really am in awe about how truly great this book is. If at any time in your life you had played video games, or spent any time in the 80s, this book is so for you. There are so many references to games and pop culture, that you will feel a part of this book...like an actual character playing the role. It's laugh-out-loud funny at many times, and I actually caught myself tear up at times, and especially at the end. It will have you gripping with anticipation on what might happen next, and you may be right if you guess what could happen. There are many surprising moments that will catch you off-guard and will always keep you wanting to know what will happen next. If you played any role-playing games, this book will feel right at home. The visual descriptions of any scene will have you picture in your head what the main character is doing all the time. Wil Wheaton reads the book with such inflection and emotion that you will never be bored with this book. If it seems like I'm rambling, its only because there is so much great things I want to say about this book, my fingers might get tired going on. All I can say is that if you have a credit (this book is even worthy of purchasing with $), if the things I've said interest you, don't doubt listening to this book. You will not be disappointed...now with that said, if you have never touched a video game or played games that immerse you in its virtual reality, you might find it hard to picture actions portrayed in this book, so that might be a risky venture, but a fun one nonetheless because of the vast pop culture references of the 80s that appear throughout the book. As my final word, this is probably the best book I have ever downloaded. Ready Player One is truly an outstanding book.

    The cause of the devastation is a phenomenon that will come to be known as The Pulse, and the delivery method is a cell phone. Everyone's cell phone. Clay and the few desperate survivors who join him suddenly find themselves in the pitch-black night of civilization's darkest age, surrounded by chaos, carnage, and a human horde that has been reduced to its basest nature...and then begins to evolve.

    This was one of the best books I have ever listened to. This is the type of book that makes the reader imagine every word Steven King writes. I was amazed with the vivid images that were given from this book. The problem I have is with the ending. Without giving away the ending, the reader is left with choices on what happened after the end of the book, instead of letting the author make the decision. I would have rated this book a 5, but after yelling at my MP3 player upon the ending, I felt that I was risen to the point of greatness, and just fell off the cliff at the end. I give it a 4, because I was able to feel comfortable with the ending that I chose to have for this book. I just wish Steven King could have done that instead.

    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    Carmela08 says: "Excellent spy tale"

    Overall

    The author's ability to make the reader laugh-out-loud at dialogue, and at the same time, make you cringe and squirm over certain descriptions of events, makes this one of the best books I have listened to in a while. The narrator's ability to read each character independently makes this an absolute must "read". I actually replayed and bookmarked certain parts just so I could laugh over again. This is a great book.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Overall, I thought this was a great book. The author definately has a way of making you laugh outloud with his type of humor. I didn't like the ending because I thought it was too abrupt, and I thought that it should have been a little longer in length. I have listened to his other books, and this was the first one that I thought ended too soon, and not at all what I thought it would be. I won't give the ending away if you want to read it, but it will leave you asking "what?"
