In his exciting new book, best-selling author Dr. Tony Evans shows that it's through the names of God that the nature of God is revealed to us. Who is God in his fullness? How has he expressed his riches and righteousness? How can you trust his goodness? As you get to know the names of God and understand their meaning, God's character will become real to you in life-changing ways.

Really powerful, relevant message. I've wanted to get to know God on His own terms and this book was better than I'd even hoped.

In this adrenaline-charged, up-to-the-moment political thriller, Stieg Larsson's Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist are back. The troubled genius hacker and crusading journalist thrilled the world in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, which have sold more than 80 million copies worldwide.

I was truly impressed by how seamlessly David Lagercrantz continued Stieg Larsson's voice, writing style, and stayed true to the characters. Excellent writing all the way through.

This is either the first or second 5-star review I've given since joining Audible.com but this book really deserves it. This book was so good that it made me look for more titles available here by Lagercrantz--which there are sadly very few of. (Boo).

Simon Vance, of course, does a FABULOUS job narrating and since listening to all of the Lisbeth Salander novels, Vance has become my favorite narrator by far and I hope to see many many more titles available on the audible.com, narrated in English by Vance. (Yes, I've already checked to see what's available).

Very much looking forward to the fifth Lisbeth Salander novel coming out later this year and want to say thanks again to Lagercrantz and Vance for such terrific work.

Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

First of all, Rachel Dratch is incredibly funny, talented, and has a unique quirkiness that is so endearing. I love love LOVE her.

However, this book was a little disappointing. At times it seems like the author is searching for things to talk about, sharing stories that don't add anything to the book and delving into trivialities that are neither funny nor add to the story.

This book might have been better if written 10 to 20 years from now, allowing for more life experience and a greater range of stories from which to choose the best.

Overall, not a bad read but I couldn't recommend it. BUT I will still read the next book that Rachel Dratch writes. Looking forward to it!

Excellent storytelling and you actually want to know what happens to the characters. I read both Cuckoo's Calling and The Silkworm before this one; all three are just as good. Really liked the narrator as well.

I rarely give 5-star ratings but this book and it's narration really deserve it.
