The second start on tbis book for me, it came out well...despite the idea that it had no beginning and no end. Its a tweener. Our hero leads the fleet to the ends of enemy space, victory after victory and after deceit from subordinates. Makes one wonder if the book series will ever complete.

Why did I spend good cash for this trash? It's a testimonial to the author's father, who made a book that I did not like much. Lucky for that family, it got made into a movie...which made it famous. Now, everybody is gaga over it. This testimonial started about fly fishing, a good subject. However, the (less than 1 hour long) audio book is at least 1/3 air and music. I felt so ripped off that I put it in the category of DBF (did not finish).

The premise that two time travelers fly on the Hindenberg; then, have a huge problem--have they created a paradox, or merely an anomaly? An interesting story that I thought could have been developed more. It's likely that the author was merely dabbling in time travel, he has potential there. Fun, quick read that's deeper than it seems.

In a small town in Utah, people are contracting a horrific disease with alarming plague-like symptoms. The CDC quarantines the area but outbreaks are already being reported in China, Japan, and England. Evidence suggests this is not a new strain of superbug - but an act of war, an orchestrated deployment of unstoppable terror.... Special agent Jericho Quinn, hellbent on finding the sniper who attacked his family, steps into an even bigger, and deadlier, conspiracy: a secret cabal of elite assassins embedded throughout the globe.

Multiple plots that really don't seem to coalesce. I thought the quality of writing was not up to par with the first three books--not enough story, too many chases and fights. Unresolved plot leaves the reader wanting to spit out really bad sushi. i wonder if book 5 is worth the download?

Journalist Tom is forced to travel by train to the west coast, a cute love story and a detective drama ensues. Makes you wonder if Baldacci had a similar experience? I was expecting heart warming and not the crime drama....yep, it was both.And, they all lived happily ever after, except the criminal, I guess?

In the aftermath of World War II, the United States accelerated the development of technologies that would give it an advantage over the Soviet Union. Airpower, combined with nuclear weapons, offered a formidable check on Soviet aggression. In 1947, the United States Air Force was established. Meanwhile, scientists and engineers were pioneering a revolutionary new type of aircraft which could do what no other machine had ever done: reach mach 1 - a speed faster than the movement of sound - which pilots called "the demon."

The author states at the forward that this book is written for the common person. He's right. The subtitle of this book, "A secret history of the quest for the sound barrier and the band of American aces who conquered it", is deceptive. Approximately 10% relates to that topic--the rest is superficial history of the 20th century. If you aren't an aviation buff, then maybe this is a good read.

Across America, people who weren't even born when Ginsburg made her name are tattooing themselves with her face, setting her famously searing dissents to music, and making viral videos in tribute.

This book is a combination of love letter, career overview scrapbook and biography. I'ts a great introduction to RBG for someone who didn't know much about her.--like me. She broke through gender barrier--fought against gender stereotypes with every forward movement of her career. It's an easy read, well researched.
