It is fall. CIA analyst Jack Ryan, historian and former Marine, is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter. Suddenly, right before his eyes, a terrorist group launches its deadly attack. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved - the Duke and Duchess of Kent.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, espically to those who are Catholic, while it isn't a major part of the story in anyway I love Mary's parents and their friends the tony's who are pretty Catholic

What other book might you compare Accused to and why?

John Grisham books maybe.

What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings the Charectors to life, espically the DiNunzio's and the Tony's. As you can tell I love them.

Mary DiNunzio has been slaving away for the past eight years trying to make partner in her cutthroat Philadelphia law firm. She's too busy to worry about the crank phone calls she's been getting - until they fall into a sinister pattern. The phone rings as soon as she gets to work, then as soon as she gets home. Mary can't shake the sensation that someone is watching her, following her every move. The shadowboxing turns deadly when her worst fears are realized, and she has to fight for something a lot more important than partnership: her life.

Would you consider the audio edition of Everywhere That Mary Went to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, but my guess is yes.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

most of the time it does

What does Teri Schnaubelt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

alittle more drama

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is the second book I've read in this series, the plot is great and you want to know what happens, but at the same time you really want to know the back story to this stuff. This is what I really like about this book. I did have a thought provoking part of the book but I won't include spoilers.

The Two Towers is the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the One Ring must be destroyed. Meanwhile, at Helm’s Deep and Isengard, the first great battles of the War of the Ring take shape. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe - hobbits, elves, and wizards - spring to life. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

His work for the CIA is brilliant, cold-blooded, and efficient, but who is he? In a harrowing tour de force, phenomenally best-selling author Tom Clancy shows how an ordinary man named John Kelly crossed the lines of justice and morality to become the CIA legend known as Mr. Clark. It is an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness, without mercy - without remorse.

Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

What made the experience of listening to The Hobbit the most enjoyable?

J.R.R. Tolkien is one of the greatest writers ever to live and his middle earth saga is among the greatest books written. Rob Inglis does a great job reading this book, he sings some of the songs written, he tries to imitate what each species sounds like.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hobbit?

Riddles in the Dark is a great chapter.

Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

His singing plus the main characters are great, he does a good job portraying who they are.
