    Looking for Alaska is Peter's account of eighteen months spent traveling over twenty thousand miles in tiny bush planes, on snow machines and snowshoes, in fishing boats and kayaks, on the Alaska Marine Highway and the Haul Road. Hearing and living the amazing stories of many Alaskans from Barrow to Craig, Seward to Deering, and everywhere in between, Peter gets to know this place in a way that only he can.

    KPS says: "good yarn, poor delivery"
    "Good story, Bad narration"
    Overall

    This is a very good story. It is well written and captivating. However, I have never heard a story told so poorly. When listening you'd never know the narrator wrote the book. At times he seems suprised that there was more to a sentence on the next line. The thought lines lose their power when they are not finished until the beginning of the next sentence. With the boon of audio books I think publishers need to emphasize the importance of a good narrator.

    Story

    When a dam breaks in Arapahoe Junction, Colorado, photojournalist Alex Graham is at the site doing more than just snapping pictures - she is in the mud with a shovel digging for survivors. Alex finds more than she bargained for. In one terrible instant, she is witness to a conspiracy that will stun a nation. The official story is just a cover-up for a truth so frightening, so unthinkable, anyone who threatens to reveal it must be silenced. Forever.

    The narration is terrible. The material is lame. The interaction between the two main characters is absolutely unbelievable. I lost count of how many time I said to myself "This book s *&s!". I had to stop listening and erase it from my player.

    The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time. Crossroads of Twilight is book ten of Robert Jordan's best selling Wheel of Time series.

    Robert Eric Koch says: "The Lowest Point of the Entire Series"
    "Just Stringing out the Series"
    Overall

    The longer this series continues the worse the books become. One gets the impression that Jordan is just trying to run the series out to an even dozen. However, at the rate he is resolving the stories sub-plots and his penchant for resurrecting characters previously killed off, it is hard to see this series finishing before reaching 20 books.

    This book is an example of how much prose an author can waste on the construction of stand lamps, the tailoring of clothing or which insignificant character is standing next to whom and still get paid for it.

    The end of the last book detailed one of the most significant plot twists in the book, that of Rand cleansing the male half of the source, and it was barley mentioned in this episode.

    This book was nothing more than a 24 hour prelude the the next book. I am so glad I only wasted an audio book subscription selection and didn't plunk down $30 plus dollars on the hardcover edition.
