    The Great War changed everything and the years following it were tumultuous - most of all for those who lived the war first-hand. Maugham himself is a character in this novel of self-discovery and search for meaning, but the protagonist is a character named Larry. Battered physically and spiritually by the war, Larry's physical wounds heal, but his spirit is changed almost beyond recognition.

    It was a mistake to have a British narrator speak the american character's dialogue without attempting an accent...The author also did not capture my attention with the plot or charaters at all.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    The last time travel novel I really liked was about 10 years ago.....Micheal Chricton maybe?... Eventhough this one doesn't really give a quantum theory (or whatever) explaination, King puts you there and gets you thinking. Very good book!

  • Winter of the World: The Century Trilogy, Book 2

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Tim says: "Brilliant Sequel"

    I was blown away again. I could picture the face of every character.

    This book made me think about my grandparents and all that they lived through in the 1930's and 40's. Follett always puts you in the shoes of the people he writes about and this novel is no different.

    Loved it!

    Mickey Haller gets the text, "Call me ASAP - 187," and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in LA and back in the life.

    Sorry Mr. Connelly, but the Lincoln Lawyer books are far better than the Harry Bosch.

    Plot twists, courtroom drama and character development make this novel rank right up there with all the other Mickey Haller books.

    Giles is the perfect narrator for this series.

    Can't wait for the next one.
