    "The genius shines through...flat-out riveting." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Classic King"
    Overall

    Stephen King is at his best when telling tales of childhood friendships and loyalties and shared experiences. This is one of those books. Going back and forth between childhood memories and current adult experiences, the author does a great job of bringing to life all the characters at their various ages.
    The reader did a superb job with the different voices (especially Duditz) which made the story even more enjoyable. Once again, a King novel that is hard to put down (or shut off).

    In It's Okay to Miss the Bed on the First Jump, a charming and hilarious book about the enduring wisdom of dogs, John O'Hurley brings his love for dogs to listeners, exploring with his characteristic wit and warmth personal yet universal lessons learned from a life lived with canine companions.

    J. Sherman says: "You'll wish it would keep going"
    "Extremely fun listen"
    Overall

    The only con I can mention is that it wasn't longer! If you're a dog lover, you will thoroughly enjoy this book and likely identify with some of the stories and personalities. At times laugh out loud funny and at other times tender and touching, this book is a pure joy to listen to (and John's narration is top-notch!).

    Nonny Frett understands the meanings of "rock" and "hard place" better than any woman ever born. She's got two mothers, "one deaf-blind and the other four baby steps from flat crazy". She's got two men: her husband, who's easing out the back door; and her best friend, who's laying siege to her heart in her front yard. She has a job that holds her in the city, and she's addicted to a little girl who's stuck deep in the country.

    Karen says: "Great listen!"
    "Well crafted, engrossing story"
    Overall

    If you liked "Gods in Alabama" you'll love "Between, Georgia". Once again, the characters are so well developed, you really feel you know them. The story is engrossing and the humor is sharp and thoroughly enjoyable. The author does a superb job narrating (her voice for the character of Bernice is reminiscent of Vicki Lawrence doing Momma on Carol Burnett!). The story will draw you in right from the start and, like all good books, you'll hate when it finally draws to its satisfying close. Two thumbs up! I anxiously await the next yarn from this talented author.

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    Overall

    This was one of the most enjoyable stories I've listened to in awhile. The narrator was so perfect for this book and really brought it alive. The characters were interesting and the storyline compelling. A good mix of humor, intrigue and drama. One of only a few books I'd consider listening to a second time around.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "A must-read"
    Overall

    This is an incredible story that pulls you in from the beginning and never lets go. Narrated in the 1st person, and against a historical background of Afghanistan, you have to keep reminding yourself it's a novel, not an amazing and touching autobiography. Excellent story, well-narrated...one of those books you hate for it to end!

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not history, not theology, just great fiction"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    Interesting plot, but bad writing, bad theology and implausible scenes rank this low on my list of good reads. The author comes off like a bad soap opera or cheap romance novel whenever he tries to make some 'chemistry' between his characters...really bad! The ending was so unbelievable, it makes Hollywood's ridiculous action movies seem plausible. Dan's writing also comes off pretty amateur.
    The most damaging, however, is his insistence that what he declares in his books are fact, when in truth, they are heretical fiction.
    Sad.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Jonas says: "Overall Good"
    "Heresy told poorly"
    Overall

    While the story was somewhat interesting from a whodunnit/mystery standpoint, the religious implications he raises are laughable. Unfortunately, many people will take them as fact, which is highly regrettable.
    The author, as with his book, "Angels & Demons", writes an interesting story, but does not write well. The 'romantic' parts come off like a bad soap opera and many scenes are just too unrealistic.

    If you are driving, pull over. If you are at work, close your door, unless you don't mind your colleagues seeing you doubled over, in tears, on your office floor. With this recording, taped before a delirious sold out audience at Carnegie Hall, you are there as David Sedaris performs new stories from his upcoming book. A parrot who mimics an ice maker, lovers quarreling over a rubber hand, and a Santa Claus who moonlights from his job as bishop of Turkey, the cast of characters is like no other.

    Richard says: "Material that exists on other books."
    "Absolutely Hysterical"
    Overall

    I haven't laughed so hard in a long time...and just from listening to a guy read from his books! The author's deadpan delivery really makes his stories work. Very entertaining!

    Really gets you thinking...you see your own behavior and start to realize how you're playing into the enemy's hands. Very thought-provoking...every Christian should read this.

    Stephen King and Peter Straub reintroduce you to Jack Sawyer of The Talisman, once a precocious boy traversing the Territories to save his mother and her "twinner," now a retired homicide detective drawn back to his past.

    Jennifer says: "Magnificent Sequel -- Riveting"
    "Very good, but fell flat at the end"
    Overall

    Although it took a little while to get fully into this book (and get used to Jack as an adult), I became just as immersed as with the Talisman. As usual, Stephen King allows you to really 'know' the characters and the story line was very cool. HOWEVER, the ending fell flat...it was as if the authors got tired and wanted to wrap things up. Not nearly as good as the Talisman. An excellent book with a disappointing finish.
