  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    "What a let down"
    Overall

    I have liked everything Christopher Moore has done so far but this book. I found the humor to be stale and uninspired and the story was to close to biblical gladhanding and not the sarcasm and wit that I expected.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What disappointed you about The Witness?

    This was one of the worst books I've listened to. The story had a tiny bit of mystery/action mixed into the larger story of a totally inane love story. The main character was a robot and totally unlikeable.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    This is NOT a good mystery. This is a love story and a bad one at that.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no

  • Fall of Giants: The Century Trilogy, Book 1

    Story
    (4878)

    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.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"
    "This book was a harlequin novel in disguise"
    Overall

    I was very excited to listen to this book having quite enjoyed Ken Follet's other books. Unfortunately, this book read like a cheap harlequin novel with just enough history intermixed to make it bearable. The characters were totally uninspiring and I found myself not caring at all what happened to them. I could not finish this book.
