    Neil and Nat are a beautifully matched couple. They hate marmite and opera, they love smelly cheese and the missionary position, and they both absolutely do not want children. Then, suddenly, Neil is practically begging her for a baby, causing Nat to wonder if he really is the man she should be with. Is it possible that someone from her past could actually be 'the one'?

    If you're interested in how good buttered toast tastes in the afternoon or whether the drapes match the wall paper this book's for you. On and on it rambled and finally got to the end where absolutely nothing that was unpredictable happened. Save a credit!

    Alma Boyd Takesue is a National Park Service biologist who is spearheading the efforts to save the Channel Islands’ endangered native creatures from invasive species like rats and feral pigs, which, in her view, must be eliminated. Her antagonist, Dave LaJoy, is a dreadlocked local businessman who, along with his lover, the folksinger Anise Reed, is fiercely opposed to the killing of any species whatsoever and will go to any lengths to subvert the plans of Alma and her colleagues.

    If you want to know what kind of mustard was in the sandwitch, or whether the eggs were runny or semi-hard boiled or how the bark of a eucalyptus tree looks pay close attention, its all here. But the plethora of detail only delays a very good story with great charactors and a noble theme. The one star downgrade is only for having to wade through five minutes of how you run over a squirrel with your car.

    It is fall. CIA analyst Jack Ryan, historian and former Marine, is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter. Suddenly, right before his eyes, a terrorist group launches its deadly attack. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved - the Duke and Duchess of Kent.

    K. Masheter Deal says: "Oldie but Goodie!"
    "Good book, but"
    Overall

    For those of you who can put up with Scott Brick's overdrama and bad foreign accents this is good adventure and twist of plot. A good book badly read is a shame, but give it a try.

    The Bigtree alligator-wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, their island home and gator-wrestling theme park, formerly number-one in the region, is swiftly being encroached upon by a fearsome and sophisticated competitor called the World of Darkness. Ava’s mother, the park’s indomitable headliner, has just died; her sister, Ossie, has fallen in love with a spooky character known as the Dredgeman, who may or may not be an actual ghost.

    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book as I am very familiar and fascinated with Southwest Florida and its mystic islands. I tried hard to like it, but the book goes nowhere. The female reader is also very hard to listen to and should not read books for a living.

    Spring, 1981. Vietnam is over, but the repercussions linger. The military strives to recover as society reels from the excesses of the 1970s. A sinister beauty and a dutiful soldier a Hollywood lawyer running from a dirty past and a cast-off vet who seems to have no future dueling drug gangs along the Mexican border and the mutilated remains of a female lieutenant.

    This book is very well written and read, and while listening I took time out only for bed. The story line is exciting, the charactors well drawn, and an added plus for me was the discription of army life at a small non-wartime base.

    In the Highlands of 1950s Scotland, a boy is found dead in a canal lock. Two young girls tell such a fanciful story of his disappearance that no one believes them. The local newspaper staff - including Joanne Ross, the part-time typist embroiled in an abusive marriage, and her boss, a seasoned journalist determined to revamp the paper - set out to uncover and investigate the crime. Suspicion falls on several townspeople, all of whom profess their innocence.

    Sharon says: "Listen to W. Denis"

    Overall

    I would recommend reading this book which is very good. Only this got me through the reading which, though done by a Scotsman, is very bad. Not the accent which is obviously authentic, but the inflection and charactor voices.

    Ellis, the American. Jean-Pierre, the Frenchman.... They were two men on opposite sides of the cold war, with a woman torn between them. Together, they formed a triangle of passion and deception, racing from terrorist bombs in Paris to the violence and intrigue of Afghanistan - and on to the moment of truth and a deadly decision for all of them.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "Good, but the multiple voice reading was poor"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    This started out to be a great book with an absorbing plot and great charactors, but it concluded with graphic sex sceens and a hokey ending. I love graphic sex in romance novels, but not Ken Follett (if this is Ken Follett). I have read all of Follett's books. They are epic adventure novels, but this is not one of them.

    It is 1894, and Nebraska’s glittering state capital draws young Bud Gardner away from drought and poverty towards a precarious existence within his uncle’s saloon, extended family and eccentric circle of bootleggers. But amidst the whores, oddballs, and shady characters of Lincoln’s Haymarket district, Bud discovers Anna Marie, a fiery Czech girl—and some deadly forces.

    "Pomising story, bad reader"

    I promised myself not to buy books read by the author especially now rhat there are so many good readers that let you live the story with them. Shame on me. I couldn't get past the first real even though I really had an interest in turn of the cenuury Nebraska.

    Maddie James and her colleagues are terrorism experts working in a crumbling intelligence agency. They are certain another terrorist attack is coming, but in a post-9/11 election year the Administration is stressing its victories in the War on Terror - and few want to hear the team's warnings. Reluctantly, Maddie's given a team of five analysts to focus on the impending threat. The crew labors through bureaucratic obstacles, personal problems, and a blossoming romance between its senior members. They come heartbreakingly close to stopping the attack....

    Julia says: "Not your typical spy novel...."
    "Not worth two"
    Overall

    In the introduction the author states that ex-CIA employees should not write books. She then ignores her own advice and proves herself right. She uses the platform to justify her own views which is exactly why ex-CIA employees should not write books.

    When her last two plays are dismal failures and her relationship with her temperamental mentor falls apart, writer Bree O’Brien abandons Chicago and the regional theater where she hoped to make a name for herself to return home. Opening Flowers on Main promises to bring her a new challenge and a new kind of fulfillment. But not all is peaceful and serene in Chesapeake Shores, with her estranged mother on the scene and her ex-lover on the warpath. Jake Collins has plenty of reasons to want Bree out of his life....

    Carol B. says: "Good Read"
    "Rehash"
    Overall

    Book two was too much like book one in its constant attempts by the new couple to understand each other. The other problem is the reader who is no Barbara Rosenblat. Too bad, Worst is the attempt to make third generation Grandma sound Irish.
