    Twelve American tourists join an art expedition that begins in the Himalayan foothills of China - dubbed the true Shangri-La - and heads south into the jungles of Burma. But after the mysterious death of their tour leader, the carefully laid plans fall apart, and disharmony breaks out among the pleasure-seekers.

    This is a keeper! I'm on my second listen, and I am enjoying it even more than the first time. I am now playing it for my husband, and he likes it too.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "What a Terrific Book"
    "I did not finish this book"
    Overall

    I gort this book based on the hight reader ratings, but it is just not to my taste. I got about half way throught the first half and lost interest. The writing was OK and the reader was not objectionable, but I did not care about the charecters at all and it did not hold my interest.

    Persuasion, Jane Austen's final novel, follows the romance of Anne Elliot and naval officer Frederick Wentworth. They were happily engaged until Anne's friend, Lady Russell, persuaded her that Frederick was "unworthy". Now, eight years later, Frederick returns, a wealthy captain in the navy, while Anne's family teeters on the edge of bankruptcy. They still love each other, but their past mistakes threaten to keep them apart.

    M. Blackstock says: "Worst version imaginable"
    "can't stand listening to the reader"
    Overall

    I love this book, but I could not listen to it. The reader speaks too fast and has no inflection at all- sort of sounded like a computer reading. If you love Jane Austen try a different production.

    Hired to cater a hockey party, Goldy comes up with a winning menu featuring zesty South of the Border Appetizers, succulent Goalies' Grilled Tuna and iced Stanley Cupcakes. Yet Patricia McCracken, her client and long-suffering friend, won't be satisfied until Goldy adds a hefty side order of revenge...Patricia is convinced that her obstetrician and her Health Maintenance Organization - penny-pinching ACHMO - are to blame for the recent loss of her baby. And the doctor in question is none other that John Richard Korman, Aspen Meadow's leading ob/gyn and Goldy's ex-husband, whose clean-cut good looks hide his dirty habit of battering women. Now, Patricia is suing the doctor and ACHMO for malpractice, but that's not enough. She wants Goldy's advice on getting even - and coming out on top.At first, Goldy relishes the fact that her ex-husband is finally going to pay. Even so, it's a horrid shock when John Richard is arrested for the murder of his current girlfriend, glamorous Suz Craig...especially when it's Goldy who makes the gruesome discovery. Shaken by the thought that she could easily have been the victim, Goldy feverishly throws herself into her work. But with her new husband, homicide cop Tom Schulz, delegated to the background of the case, and her 14 year-old son begging to prove his father innocent, Goldy has no choice but to sift through Aspen Meadow's premium mix of sizzling gossip and reheated rumor for clues.

    I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other I have heard, I just couldn't get over that voice. I guess I will only get the ones read by Barbra Rosenblat

    This memoir is laced with wonderful stories about the French character, particularly in the world of food, and the way of life that Julia Child embraced so wholeheartedly. Above all, she reveals the kind of spirit and determination, the sheer love of cooking, and the drive to share that with her fellow Americans that made her the extraordinary success she became.

    Sara says: "What a pleasure!"
    "I love this book"
    Overall

    I don't care if the narrator cannot speak french. I love Julia and have for years. To hear her thoughts and ides for me was wonderful. I was sad to have it end, but now I can look forward to listening again

    Leaving behind her private forensic pathology practice in Charleston, South Carolina, Kay Scarpetta accepts an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured man on Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric prison ward. The handcuffed and chained patient, Oscar Bane, has specifically asked for her, and when she literally has her gloved hands on him, he begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.

    Becky says: "Don't waste your money"
    "What kind of mind comes up with this?"
    Overall

    I have read or listened to all of patricia Cornwell's books, but this is the first time I asked myself just what kind of mind comes up with such a horrific murder description. I had to fast forward the book because it was so graphic. I then had to ask myself about the state of my own mind. I think that I will forgo and future books by this author. I am interested in mystery not gruesome torture and the graphic description thereof.
