    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    While Bernie continues his struggle to pay the bills, Chet - with his sharp nose and even sharper teeth - keeps bringing down the perps. Told from Chet's perspective and featuring the humorous ramblings of a dog, Thereby Hangs a Tail is another winner.

    What made the experience of listening to A Dog's Purpose the most enjoyable?

    You almost thought the dog was talking and telling the story.
    It was sad in parts but got over it so fast you were on to another
    part.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Dog's Purpose?

    Bailey and the boy....it was beautiful and made you believe that dogs do have great ideas.

    What could Lee Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Of all the books this one is the slowest. It just was not as good as all the others and i have listened to lots of them. I think you just expect more from Lee Child and Reacher. like non stop action.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, Dick Hill does a great job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tripwire?

    lots of them.


    Any additional comments?

    I have loved the rest of the books. I don't know if this is a earlier book but i will continue to pick Reacher.
