  • "King in his Summer Finest"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I read Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes" (1962) years ago and never forgot it. I've reread it several times, and always find something new in the story of a traveling carnival lead by Mr. Dark, whose followers are marked by tattoos.

    I felt the same way when I listened to Stephen King's "Joyland" (2013), even though the plots of the books are quite different. The atmosphere is the same, and so is the sense of evil. The carnival rides play a key part in both.

    "Joyland" is a regional 'Six Flags' type of amusement park, not an international destination like Disneyland. I loved the new 'carny' language I learned. Guess that makes me a 'greenie', but at least I'm not a 'rube' if I know the lingo. That makes this the perfect book for a patient parent to listen to/read if she's been drafted as chaperone on one of those long, hot summer days of not-quite-cutting edge rides, junk food, and sunburned children excited enough to throw up on her shoes.

    "Joyland" is a true mystery. Solving the mystery does not rely on the supernatural elements in "Joyland", so mystery fans won't be disappointed by vague clues from beyond being the key to figuring out 'who dunnit'. Finding the killer was no easy task for Devin Jones, the protagonist (aptly narrated by Michael Kelly) and it isn't easy for the listener/reader either.

    "Joyland" is also a sweet coming of age story of love lost and love found, set against the backdrop of the most powerful love of all.

    This book has some mild, not explicit sex. There is some violence, but it doesn't come near the violence in J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series. It's good for 'young adult' readers. For Stephen King fans, there are plenty of references to his other works - and it's fun to find them. However, the book stands on its own - you don't need to get the inside joke from King's "The Dead Zone" (1979) to love the story.

  • The Grifters

    "Thompson at his best."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a marvelous twist-a- thon where nobody is even close to the way they appear. The plot is so easy to "spoil", I'll just say you won't be disappointed.
    Barbara Rosenblat is a genius narrator. She does men convincingly, making boy-girl conversations seem like two actors working. But the voices she gives the women, whiskey-soaked and cigarette damaged, recall noir femme-fatales from Lauren Bacall to Kathleen Turner.
    I listened to this book in black and white!

  • The Killer Inside Me

    "Much better than those ratings indicate."

    Overall

    Story

    This is typical Thompson. That is to say: it's dark, it has tempting babes, it has a straight forward plot that flips every time the listener gets comfortable. There has been discussion of the ending, but remember: this is about a crazy person!
    The narration is suited to the story, his voices are perfect for the characters, and the pace is noir creepy. This is a fun listening experience.

  • "Think I'd prefer the grammy nominat..."

    5 of 8 helpful votes
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm relatively new to audio books and this is only my second fiction book to consume but I'm beginning to wonder if I'd prefer a straight reading and let my imagination do the voices rather than the narrator doing voices. If I took a second listen I'd listen to the dramatization.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if is the hard boiled detective genre, a product of its time, or the fact that I so looked forward to getting to this book that I hyped it up in my mind but I only have a lukewarm review. Over the years it was definitely recommended to me by more than one person so its been in the queue for a long time. I think what bothered me most was out of 3 women none seem remotely realistic and the book boderlined on a misogynistic view of women. The twists and turns kept me interested but every time a woman interacted with Sam Spade I would just think to myself. Really?

    Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, first serialized in a magazine in 1930, is best known through the iconic Humphrey Bogart film of 1941. But it was the book that created the classic "noir" genre with its tough private detective threading his cool way between the criminals and the law. Sam Spade, the private eye solving the mystery of the Maltese statuette, was the template for Philip Marlowe and a host of others…. but they come no more shrewd and cunning with Hammett peppering the text with one-liners.

Hard-hitting, fast-paced, and richly detailed, The Pale Criminal is noir writing at its blackest and best.

    The daunting task that confronts Gurney, once the NYPD's top homicide cop: determining the guilt or innocence of a woman already convicted of shooting her charismatic politician husband - who was felled by a rifle bullet to the brain while delivering the eulogy at his own mother's funeral. Peeling back the layers, Gurney quickly finds himself waging a dangerous battle of wits with a thoroughly corrupt investigator, a disturbingly cordial mob boss, a gorgeous young temptress, and a bizarre assassin whose child-like appearance has earned him the nickname Peter Pan.

    Sheriff Kyle of Deadeye, Nevada, is headed east to the nation’s capital. Like Dennis Weaver in the television series McCloud, Kyle’s about to discover that the law can be even wilder in the big city than in the Wild West. It’s a fact that hits home when he’s the one accused...of murder. Kyle’s come to the city to give a report to his senator on the misdeeds of Nevada’s filthy rich copper kings. But before he has a chance, he’s knocked unconscious, later coming to alongside his senator - now dead, with Kyle’s knife imbedded in the corpse.

    When it comes to flying gliders, ace pilot Breeze Callaghan is as smooth as they come. He perfects a skill that will prove vitally important for decades to come - even into the jet age, as demonstrated by Captain Sully Sullenberger, who famously landed his disabled passenger plane on the Hudson River. Sully’s jet was brought down by a flock of geese, while Breeze is going up against a vulture named Badger O’Dowell. Both pilots are vying for a Navy contract, and Badger would love to shoot the Breeze...literally.

    Spring has come to White Bear Landing - and so has the law, in the firm hands of Royal Mounted Policeman and pilot Bob Dixon. Dixon’s as gruff, tough, and good-looking as Russell Crowe, and in this outpost halfway between the arctic mines and civilization, he’s known for taking the law to extremes. More than once Dixon has meted out his own brand of rough justice with hard fists and hot lead, but now the tables have turned. The past has come back to haunt him, he’s been set up as a murder suspect, and a rogue’s gallery of enemies are lining up.
