    A master craftsman, Don Lark could fix everything except what mattered, his own soul. After tragedy claimed the one thing he loved, he began looking for dilapidated houses to buy, renovate, and resell at a profit, giving these empty shells the second chance at life he denied himself.

    "Surprisingly good!"
    Overall

    This book was surprisingly good -- a little long and drawn out, but wonderful nonetheless. There were not many surprises, but the plot development, the character interaction, and the story's speed were all excellent. I'll never look at a house the same way again.I look forward to his next book.

    What do you do when you are a nanny to an obscenely rich Park Avenue matron named X? Mrs. X refuses to do anything for herself, including cook, clean, or take care of her 4-year-old son. You are expected to do everything, including maintaining the mental health of said 4-year-old, even while Mrs. X decides that it is time for a divorce. You'll have to bear up under the strain with wit and panache, even as the boundaries between your working life and your so-called private life blur, merge, and disappear.

    Rhonda says: "The Nanny Diaries"
    "Great Book but SAD SAD SAD"
    Overall

    This was a wonderfully engrossing book about our "me-first" society and those people [not the strong, but the rich] who prey on the weak. The young Nanny allows herself to be a doormat for her employer while falling in love with her charge. The ending was particularly sad -- the throwaway Nanny, the throwaway [deleted to not spoil the story], and the inevitable questions about what happens to the charge AND the Nanny in the future. It was a great read, with a great READER.

    Step Fletcher, his pregnant wife DeAnne, and their three children move to Steuben, North Carolina, with high hopes. But Step's new job with a software company turns out to be a snake pit, and 8-year-old Stevie's school is worse. As Stevie retreats into himself, focusing more and more on a mysterious computer game and a growing troop of imaginary friends, the Fletchers' concern turns to terror.

    Dave says: "A knockout"
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book. The characters came to life, and the Mormonism portrayed was both a faith-sharing act from the author, and an important part of the character development. I really enjoyed the author's note at the end. It made me look at the book with new eyes. I'll definitely pick more of his books in the future.

    When Eragon finds a polished blue stone in the forest, he thinks it is the lucky discovery of a poor farm boy; perhaps it will buy his family meat for the winter. But when the stone brings a dragon hatchling, Eragon realizes he has stumbled upon a legacy nearly as old as the Empire itself.

    Sandra says: "Utterly Awesome!"
    "Enjoyable Ride"
    Overall

    This book is an enjoyable ride, made better by the reader's use of voices AND the many, many index points available in the book. I look forward to reading more in the saga, as well as reading other books from this young author.

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    "VERY adult"
    Overall

    I got this book because I love the Broadway version. I was very surprised at the extent of the "foul" language... I was quite surprised, because he has such a great vocabulary. I would have expected more creativity in the "bad" words. Many explicit and suggestive scenes in the story, making for some interesting sub-texts. I did enjoy the thorough was the characters were developed, although some parts did seem excessively long. The narrator was very good and didn't get in the way of the story as some narrators do.

    The creator of the Left Behind series introduces a terrific new hero for our time. Michael Murphy is a scholar of Biblical prophecy, but not the sedate and tweedy kind. Murphy is a field archaeologist who defies danger to fearlessly hunt down and authenticate ancient artifacts from Biblical times. His latest discovery is his most amazing, but it will send him hurtling from a life of excavation and revelations to a confrontation with the forces of the greatest evil.

    Michael says: "A good inspiration"
    "Except for the Smuckers guy..."
    Overall

    I didn't see that the characters were as bad as others did. In fact, I can't remember a Christian novel before where a good guy actually even THOUGHT about having an alcoholic beverage. Yes, it's squeaky-clean, but would you expect a book from a Christian to have sex?? I'm not sure I buy into the science in the last scene, but it does have an interesting idea...loved the birds...

    My biggest gripe is the narrator. I don't know if he's the guy from the Smuckers commercial or not, but I found myself wanting to eat lots of jelly....

    The Supreme Court endorses terrorists' rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You're right: it's not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly "conservative" Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power.

    James says: "A concise account of an originalist viewpoint"
    "Like a legal memorandum..."
    Overall

    Very informative and interesting, but sounded like a legal memoranda. Thought provoking.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Alexandra says: "Incredibly entertaining"
    "What happened to the end?"
    Overall

    Enjoyed the book for what it is -- a NOVEL -- so didn't take it as seriously as some. Can't figure out what all the brouhaha from the religious sector (and I AM a Christian) is all about. It's ONLY A NOVEL! Even if it has historical elements, do we have to read demons into every page?? There are MANY historical novels out there which do the same thing -- weave history into a story for today. Will listen to it again and again. Found that the recording ended mid-chapter 103 which was very annoying.
