    Story

    Stephanie is the quirky friend I've loved for many years. But her stories seem to get shorter and the funny stuff is getting a bit worn. Let's ask Janet E. if she could take two years off and get us a great juicy plot that's a 12 hour read. New jokes, some old characters and some new characters mixed in. Who is with me?

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    Story

    Background music in an audiobook? This was a first. Beautiful story by Jackson, well ready by Taber, made goofy by dramatic music.

    Back to the book - Searching for a new author I stumbled upon Gods in Alabama and Jackson. I was reeled in from the start and sometimes felt manipulated by the story line just as the characters were jerked around by the main character. The story is about Arlene who leaves behind her southern roots, painful past, and loony family for Chicago and a life in academia. Even though she keeps rigid weekly contact with her Aunt Flo - she feels only obligation and no affection for the family she left 10 years before. Her past smacks into the present and the retelling of it makes these crazy people very loveable.

    I recommend this book to any chick-lit reader and recommend the publishers re-record it without the music.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    Elle says: "I'd listen to Guidall read the tax code, so..."
    "Mitch can come on home to to me."

    Story

    In the 70s, we boomer babes drooled over the mafia tough guys; in the 80s we loved lawyers and in the 90s we couldn't get enough of cops and PIs. Since 9-11-2001, we turned our ardor toward special forces; and when the Navy Seals took down Bin Ladin, we became ga-ga over these guys. Thank you Vince Flynn for giving me Mitch, a man who makes me melty; and George Guidall, thank you for giving Mitch the voice that makes me tingly. There's stuff about enemies and guns and bombs, but when Mitch Rapp wants to look into the eyes of some evil bastard before he kills him, well, I wish he was coming home to me so I could reward him for protecting us.
