Loved this book. I followed up Case for Christ with this one because I had more questions. This book gave insight to many issues that are currently faced. And while all may not be sufficiently answered, it opened a dialog that helped me understand the issues further and strengthen my faith.

Few books have captivated the imagination and won the devotion and praise of readers and critics everywhere as has George R. R. Martin’s monumental epic cycle of high fantasy that began with A Game of Thrones. Now, in A Feast for Crows, Martin delivers the long-awaited fourth book of his landmark series, as a kingdom torn asunder finds itself at last on the brink of peace . . . only to be launched on an even more terrifying course of destruction.

Didn’t like this book at all. It just went on and on and I feel like we hardly got anywhere. I only finished it because I like the overall story, but this was tough to get through

Come one, come all to this larger-than-life biography of P. T. Barnum, showman and founder of the Barnum & Bailey Circus. Visit Barnum's American Museum, established in only four weeks! Meet Madame Josephine Clofulia, the Swiss Bearded Lady. Get to know Tom Thumb, a miniature man (only twenty-five inches tall), and his tiny bride (32 inches). Watch as the circus parade goes by, elephants tail to trunk, costumed performers waving, lions yawning. Then, under the big top, as Barnum steps into the spotlight, cast your eyes on the center ring and prepare to be amazed.

I wanted to learn more about the Life of PT Barnum and this fit the bill. It gave me all the information I needed without being boring or too in depth. Was worth the time spent listening to it

Winter is coming. Such is the stern motto of House Stark, the northernmost of the fiefdoms that owe allegiance to King Robert Baratheon in far-off King's Landing. There Eddard Stark of Winterfell rules in Robert's name. Far to the north, behind the towering Wall, lie savage Wildings and worse - unnatural things relegated to myth during the centuries-long summer, but proving all too real and all too deadly in the turning of the season. Yet a more immediate threat lurks to the south, where Jon Arryn, the Hand of the King, has died under mysterious circumstances....

It's a long and arduous read but an intense and detailed story. The reader is defiantly not my favorite and makes the story even harder to enjoy. But it doesn't ruin the book by any means. Can't wait to read the rest

Didn't know what to expect and what I got wasn't good. The story was so jumbled. It moved so fast there seemed to be very little character development. The guy reading was so casual he mumbled sometimes I think. Just didn't like it at all

The Bodine ranch and resort in western Montana is a family business, an idyllic spot for vacationers. A little over thirty thousand acres and home to four generations, it's kept running by Bodine Longbow with the help of a large staff, including new hire Callen Skinner. There was another member of the family once: Bodine's aunt, Alice, who ran off before Bodine was born. She never returned, and the Longbows don't talk about her much. The younger ones, who never met her, quietly presume she's dead.

This book reads so easily and so quickly. I got lost in it and finished all too quickly. The characters were wonderful. I wish there was more to their stories even.
