    Story

    Lots of people have reviewed this book already so I will just aim my comments to those (like me) who hesitate to get this because of the cartoonish cover art and well the whole zombies thing. I like zombie fiction but eventually it does get pretty predictable. This book is not your typical run and shoot zombies take over the world tale. It is not a gratuitous gore-fest. The story has multiple layers, science, mysteries within mysteries, strong characters, and intrigue that will keep you guessing and glued to your earphones to the last word. Yes, it is that good. And Ray Porter’s performance is flawless perfection.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    The first body was found in Europe. She had once been a beautiful young girl, but with exquisite skill someone had carefully teased the skin entirely away from her body, leaving nothing but a flayed and bloody carcass. A full examination of her ruined body reveals an horrific truth: She had been skinned alive. The second blood-raw corpse turned up in New England. Followed soon after by another, this time a victim of extreme decomposition, a mess of flesh convulsing with maggots.

    Story

    The second episode finds the research team deep in the Amazon jungle. The action is quick and the team quickly dwindles. The writing isn't bad but sometimes less really is more. IMHO, drawing out the suspense over a few scary incidents might have been more effective than trying to include every jungle cliche ever imagined. I did enjoy part two but it could have been better. Looking forward to episode three.

    Just one other note. It was somewhat annoying that part three of the story was available a week before part two. Be sure you are listening to the books in the right order.

    Matt Kearns and the remnants of the scientific team return to a ravaged America. Modern medicine has failed to halt the spread of the flesh-consuming parasite, and humans have been forced to hide, even from one another. The infected roam the cities and suburbs of a ruined nation. But the devastating effects on human physiology are only the beginning. Something has been let loose, something that the team were not prepared for - human nature itself.

  • The Shining Girls: A Novel

    "Wow, great, creepy thriller!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I learned very early on while listening to this book to pay close attention.  It has many threads that wind around each other, and a timeline that passes back and forth as the macabre plot unfolds. This is one of the better books I have read in a while.  When I reluctantly had to turn it off, I could not wait to get back to this non stop twisting story.

    Quite a ride following a ruthless psychopath into the future, and past, who has some sort of twisted timetable of murders to accomplish. The killer feels confused about whether he is choosing the victims or is being compelled by a house that is on sliding rule of time.  Part of his ritual is to visit each victim, "shining girl",  when they are younger to tell them that he will see them again and to give each one a small token.  Some remember him when he returns much later, some don't.

    As the murders go on throughout the years investigators never match the MO to a serial killer because of the time separation. When he thinks he is almost done with the years of predesigned killings, he finds out that one of his victims has survived and is tracking him through the, "out of time", tokens he leaves on the victims.  In order for his insane destiny to be met he must find and kill her.  In order for her to retain her sanity, she knows, she has to find and stop him no matter what it takes.

    All of the great narrators are what helped to make this listen a grand slam.  I found this book to be very reminiscent of Stephen Kings early, more graphic books, definitely not for the faint of heart.  Headphones suggested.  Highly recommend. 

  • Stoker’s Manuscript

    "Poindexter meets Dracula"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    An admirable debut, the writing had a nice flow, not too wordy and the story stayed interesting. Joseph Barkley, a book store owner, is hired to purchase and deliver the original, Braum Stokers, Dracula, along with all the notes and memoirs, to a very, to say the least, strange eccentric in Transylvania.  His journey turns out to be as much about the delivery as it is a personal quest to find out more about he and his brothers family history, and how they may be connected. 

    As he finds out more about his employer he is pushed into a position that requires him to become a sleuth/slayer, not only  to protect himself but also the ones he loves.   The people that try to help him have a way of ending up dead, so he has to learn how to collect information with out the knowledge of his employer, or his minions, (semi-human slaves).   To avoid certain death or lifelong entrapment he must try to unravel Braum Stokers, unpublished epilogue that reveals what his employer is really after. 

    Many unusual, somewhat endearing, but also suspicious and gruesome characters, help to make this a compelling storyline that was different.  Sometimes, like in this case, different is good.   The narrator was an acquired taste, his voices were better than his narrative.   Jump in but hold onto your souls for the sequel.

    Story

    It is so refreshing to come across a writer that writes to the, "smart reader". This was my first Joe Hill book and I was surprised and impressed by the caliber of his writing, he has definitely inherited his fathers, (Stephen King's), ability to spin a  spooky yarn that takes you on a gripping roller coaster ride. 

    A fast pace, combined with well constructed characters provoked some thrilling and unexpected intensity. From the mystical heroine to the horrible villains, the characters have such depth that they draw you right into their dreadful altered reality.  For the thriller/horror seeker this scary and suspenseful read will not disappoint. 

    A 115 year old convicted kidnapper/murderer, awakens from a 5 year coma,.. dies,.. gets embalmed, and then....walks out of the  hospital...  
    As an act of revenge against the young girl who aided in his conviction years earlier, he and his creepy, murdering minion, snatch her young son with the intent of taking him into a bone chilling, fantasy world; "Christmasland". He would only be one of the many. 
    A brave, mystical, but also, damaged heroin must use all of her recourses and abilities to try to save her son from a dammed eternity. 

    The narrator did a great job with the up and down pace and the different character voices.  I will be looking for Hills next book with the hope that he can keep up the highly exciting, first rate plot lines. 

  • Krampus: The Yule Lord

    Story

    The Yule Lord is an ancient Lord who was banished by Santa Clause 500 years ago. He sets out to right the wrongs perpetrated against him and take his Yule throne back. A lot has changed in 500 years and his only knowledge of it has been the occasional news paper. His band of minions are the undead, however, surprisingly not as violent and evil as the local mob and crooked sheriff.

    Great, weird, violent Christmas read. I loved how the story just kept on getting better and better. The characters were so crazy, a nightmare come to life, that being said, the flip side was their fantastical vulnerability. This is not for anyone who is offended easily about religion or gore.

    The narrator was good, just make sure you have the volume control close. A dark Christmas tale with a historical fantasy at its core. Ho Ho Ho

    WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?
    The story begins with a virus killing 99% of the population. We meet several survivors in separate towns. They stay in town a while, then begin traveling on motorcycles, bicycles, or walking. The travelers start out alone or with one other person. Along the way they join with others. A man called Randall Flagg is creating his own empire, dictator style, with evil intentions. His headquarters are in Las Vegas, Nevada. Survivors with criminal tendencies are drawn toward Flagg. Good folks are drawn to Boulder, Colorado, where they form a community called the Free Zone.

    REVIEWER’S OPINION:
    Before I read any Stephen King, I thought most of his books would be about monsters, horror, screaming, slashing - things in horror movies. I was wrong. I’m finding a lot of depth and interesting character development. His bad guys are not all that different from some of the serial killers in mainstream crime fiction and thrillers.

    The Stand has some paranormal, not a lot. Several characters have psychic dreams or a psychic sense at times. The Stand is one of Stephen’s longest books. The paperback is 1439 pages. I was never bored. I became attached to the characters. In the preface Stephen says “When I speak (which is as rarely as possible), people always speak to me about The Stand. They discuss the characters as though they were living people, and ask frequently, “What happened to so-and-so?”... as if I got letters from them every now and again.” Personally I feel that way. I’d like to think about the characters in the future.

    Stephen makes everyday conversations interesting. There are many characters in this book, but it didn’t feel like too many. We are with a guy in Arkansas for 25 pages, then a guy in New York for 12 pages, then a woman in Maine for 11 pages. I like a linear time line and I like scenes with natural endings. And most of the time the scenes met these requirements. My biggest problem with Stephen’s book “It” was stopping scenes in the middle of action and jumping around in time. I’m pleased to see the author used “better methods” in this book.

    This is a post apocalyptic world. By the end of the book some of the good guys die, but others have happy endings. Normally I would avoid books with this setup because I don’t want to be depressed. Other authors might tell this story with deep digging into grief and loss. This book was not done that way. I was pleased that I was not depressed.

    I was pleased to see a romance. A couple meets, they eventually get together, and have a happy ending. For those whose don’t like abusive husbands, you’ll like this. This is the way guys should be. He cares for her happiness.

    There is a homosexual rape scene in detail. Also there is a telling (after the fact) of women held against their will and repeatedly raped.

    This is the expanded edition published in 1990. Much was cut for the 1978 edition. Stephen added back cut parts and a lot of new writing for the 1990 edition. I would not want to read the cut version.

    IS IT PERFECT? NO.
    I had a few questions that were not answered, such as why Flagg was losing his powers, and what was the purpose of the pregnancy. Also I did not like Flagg’s ending. I wanted something worse to happen to him.

    The narrator Grover Gardner did an excellent job.

    Genre: apocalyptic paranormal fiction
    Ending: happy for many of the good guys, bad for most of the bad guys

Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf.

    Angel Hill is not a place to be taken lightly. For many, it's the sort of town you escape from, not one you move into. And those who do often find the ghosts of their past have a way of following them. When Todd Morgan finally moved out on his own, the last thing he expected was the feeling of isolation that came with breaking his leg in a new town, far from his home. That feeling only got worse when the man in the window showed up, a small somehow familiar man who did nothing, just stood there and stared at him.

    It was Cassie’s 21st birthday, and she had her friends over to celebrate her special day. Her friends had brought her a birthday cake, ice cream and lots of presents. They had been celebrating since the early evening. It was getting close to midnight now and Cassie and her friends were feeling a little buzzed from the wine coolers they had been drinking. Daryl had bought Cassie an Ouija Board for her birthday. Cassie had always wanted one, but had never gotten around to buying one for herself.
