This book was Action packed from beginning to end. The story and characters are well thought out and engaging. The narrator did a great job with accents and different voices which added depth to the production. Well worth your time and Money. I already have the next book on preorder.

Even for an average citizen, a love triangle is dangerous business. For assassin John Rainn - "one of the most compelling lead characters in the genre" ( USA Today) it's going to be downright deadly. When Rain learns that his former lover, Midori, has been raising their child in New York, Rain senses a chance for reconciliation, perhaps even for redemption. But Midori and the child are being watched by Rain's enemies, and Rain's sudden appearance puts them in terrible danger. To save them, Rain is forced to use the same deadly talents he had been hoping to leave behind.

This book has an all star cast of voices/ real actors. Many of whom you'll recognize. The story was really good with some nice twists. The sound effects adds value without taking away from the story. Get it. You won't regret it.

"You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

The plot in this book was thin to begin with and all he did was stretch it out. I have read all the other books in this series and this one is a snoozer. Really, this story should have ended in about an hour.

When Victor is called to meet with an old friend who ultimately betrayed him, what he thought was an ambush is in fact a plea for help. As a Russian gangster, Norimov is accustomed to death threats, but now an unknown enemy wants more than his life. They intend to kill everyone he cares about, including his missing daughter Gisele. This time, Victor's job is not to kill but to protect. Unfortunately, locating Gisele is his first mistake - because someone is watching his every move.

This is a good book and a good series. The narrator is absolutely amazing. He does a great job of keeping the characters separate with different voices and accents. I have found that for a guy that had stayed in the shadows he gets found a little to often for me to believe.

This was a good read. It started off a bit slow ; but, got going at a good clip about the half way point. The narrator was a bit on the Dry side and tended to make me sleepy. He more then anything is why I couldn't give it more stars.

Discover magazine recently called Richard Dawkins "Darwin's Rottweiler" for his fierce and effective defense of evolution. Prospect magazine voted him among the top three public intellectuals in the world (along with Umberto Eco and Noam Chomsky). Now Dawkins turns his considerable intellect on religion, denouncing its faulty logic and the suffering it causes.

I found this book to be facinating. I have been thru at least 3 different religions and i can tell you none of them " filled a void" . this author speaks to that little voice in your head That tells you that what you are hearing from a priest, bishop, rabbi, or what ever just seems off. and he backs it up with good plain undeniable logic. But remember belief in anything is an entirely personal CHOICE. Even if that thing is nothing at all.

Think and Grow Rich is the number-one inspirational and motivational classic for individuals who are interested in furthering their lives and reaching their goals by learning from important figures in history. The text read in this audiobook is the original 1937 edition written by Napoleon Hill and inspired by Andrew Carnegie - and while it has often been reproduced, no updated version has ever been able to compete with the original.
