New on the iPod

So that was kinda fun last week.  I posted a few audios that I had recently loaded on my iPod, and I was impulsively convinced to start listening to one of them (Fire in the Ashes by Jonathon Kozol).  

Here are few more that I recently added, and coincidentally, they are all part of a series or trilogy (shocking I know.) 
 The Twelve by Justin Cronin (received from my local library):

Description from Amazon (sort of):  Book Two of The Passage Trilogy continues with the world transformed by a governmental experiment gone horribly wrong.  Now the scope widens and the intensity deepens as the epic story surges forward.    
Angelopolis by Danielle Trussoni (received from Penguin Audio):

Description from Amazon:  Book Two of the Angelology Trilogy.  In the first installment, Angelology unfurled a brilliant tapestry of myth and biblical lore on our present-day world and plunged two star-crossed heroes  into an ancient battle against mankind's greatest enemy:  the fatally-attractive angel-human hybrids known as the Nephilim.  With Angelopolis, the conflict deepens into an inferno of danger and passion unbound. 
 The Drop by Michael Connelly (received from Kathy at Bermudaonion):

Description from Amazon:  Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever.  In one morning he gets two.

Relentlessly pursuing both cases, he makes two chilling discoveries:  a killer operating unknown in the city for as many as three decades, and a political conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department.  



Do you have opinions on any of these three?  Do I need to stop in my tracks and listen to any of them?

I was so anxious to read The Twelve, and then after seeing the reviews, I lost interest! I may yet pick it up...

The only one I've read is The Drop but Angelopolis is getting rave reviews.

The Twelve gets off to a slow start, but then picks up - and ends with a bang. It may not be as full of awesome as The Passage, but still worth your time, especially in Scott Brick's velvet/chocolate voice.

I may need to reread Angelology before I try Angelopolis - I don't remember hardly anything about, other than that I liked it.

I enjoyed The Twelve. Maybe more so than book one.

Beth F said...

Angelopolis is a good listen. I have The Drop on my list.

I do love Michael Connelly! I haven't listened to any of his books, however. I haven't read or listened to any of the books you mention, although I do eventually want to read The Passage and follow it up with The Twelve.

Well, I did not like The Passage, (way, way, way too long..boring) so I will be skipping The Twelve.
And I am not sure how I feel about this new, improved, audio book pimping.

They all sound good! Hope you enjoy them all!

Make sure you have read/listened to The Passage before tackling The Twelve otherwise you won't know what's happening! I agree with Carrie that it goes off a bit in the middle, but do stick without as it picks up a lot at the end! I don't know if you've listened to The Art Of Racing in the Rain, but that's a great audio book, I loved it!

I've got a dead tree version of The Twelve...started it, lost interest, but will start again. Someday.

Alice Teh said...

You have some of the most interesting titles in this post! I want to read Angelology. I really don't know how I'd handle all the titles I wanted to read but time, oh time! Wise folks always say make time, so I'll try...

I like this new feature … helps me get ideas for new audios.

It's a miracle but I've actually read two of these. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on ANGELOPOLIS.
