    The year is 1925. It is sixty degrees below zero. The wind sweeps tons of snow over the deep-frozen Alaskan landscape. The nearest railhead is seven hundred miles away. Airplanes cannot fly. The way to Nome is blocked by a treacherous frozen sound, an icebound port, and mountains to the west. But there is a diphtheria epidemic in Nome. The children need serum from the outside world if they are to survive. Their only hope is a few chosen Eskimo drivers and their teams of dogs.

    On April 23, 1967, Prisoner #416J, an inmate at the notorious Missouri State Penitentiary, escaped in a breadbox. Fashioning himself Eric Galt, this nondescript thief and con man - whose real name was James Earl Ray -drifted through the South, into Mexico, and then Los Angeles, where he was galvanized by George Wallace's racist presidential campaign. With relentless storytelling drive, Sides follows Galt and King as they crisscross the country, one stalking the other, until the crushing moment at the Lorraine Motel.

    Story

    This is in the top ten books I have listened to. Skillfully written, Hampton Sides uses some turns of phrase that just make you smile. Even though you know what is going to happen, the murder of Dr. King broke my heart all over again. A must for anyone who remembers that year of assassinations.

    From Martin Cruz Smith, "a master of the international thriller," comes an audacious novel of exotic locales, intimate intrigues, and the mysteries of the human heart. "A superb thriller and a remarkable evocation of a place," raves Booklist in a starred review. "A moving, believable love story in which individual lives are invested with great dignity, even in the face of national ideals."

    Andrew says: "No substitute for the book, but not bad."
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I have read all of Cruz Smith's other books and I have been riveted by them. I just couldn't get into this one. I'm not sure if it was the story or the abridgment, but it was very hard to follow. The characters were predictable and two dimensional. I didn't care about any of them. I ended up skipping to the last chapter just to get it over with.

    Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books, The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of the religion.

    Tim says: "A Classic That Gets Better & Better With Time!"
    "Excellent book!"
    Overall

    C. S. Lewis is very engaging as he narrates this collection of thoughts on Christianity. He is never condescending or judgemental. an excellent book if you want to hear a clear explanation of some of Christianity's most basic beliefs.
