    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    Excellent story. I was getting quite frustrated for the character throughout the listen but could not put it down. Whipped thru it in a few days. Very unexpected conclusion!

    It was supposed to be a fun day, shopping at the mall with her best friend. Then the panic attack started and Kaylee Cavanaugh finds herself screaming, unable to stop. Her secret fears are exposed, and it's the worst day of her life....Until she wakes up in the psychiatric unit. She tries to convince everyone she's fine--despite the shadows she sees forming around another patient and the urge to scream which comes burbling up again and again.

    Story

    The narrator was great and I really got sucked in to the characters story, but I guess I failed to realize that this was just a prequel, so I was left with a wtf feeling. So you will want to keep on with the series. Otherwise great but hoy, just what I need another series...

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    Story

    I am probably bias as I watch the show, but I have grown attached to the character's personality on the show and the characters in the book, seem lacking. Maura is presented is mousy and weak but I don't think that is necessarily true to her character, at least not the character I have grown accustomed to. The same with Rizzoli, I don't think she would be as passive either.
    The story was ok. Again, decisions made by the characters didn't seem to fit the personalities I know. It also seemed to wrap up quickly. It drags on throughout and then boom its over.
    The narrator was OK, but seemed to have problems with some of the male voices, making them sound kind of silly.
    I did enjoy the twists and found myself hurrying back to the car to find out what happened next. I am also intrigued as to the ending, a small section is left open. Again, not the worst but not the best either, but enough to keep my interest.

    I thought I wouldn't need the interactive part but you do. It just reads the spanish to go with the book. Cant just listen in your car. Defeats the purpose in my opinion.

Patrick Ness says that he wrote it "as a huge and deeply-felt thank you to readers. I've had so many questions about Viola and what her life was like before that I couldn't resist the opportunity to reveal just a little bit extra.

    Story

    Not bad. It did what it was supposed to which was pull me in and cause me to want to get the rest of the books in the series. Its not bad. Im not leaping to use a credit right now but it hooked me in. It jumps around to flashbacks a lot which I found a bit annoying. The narrator is ok. She doesn't do guys voices well but is ok. Not the worst I've heard by far. Worth a listen.

    Story

    This trilogy is awesome. I am not a romancy girl but these stories had mystery excitement and a perfect touch of magic and fantasy. Yea yea the romance was ok too. I got sucked into the characters quite quickly and pretty much listened back to back. Really couldn't put them down, in the car, in the kitchen, getting ready for bed, nonstop. Good stuff.

    Few writers have explored the human dark side with as much insight and power - and in Winter Prey, his shattering New York Times best-seller, Sandford tells his most ice-blooded tale of all. Minneapolis Lieutenant Lucas Davenport has tracked killers in cities across America. But even he may be unprepared to face the savage murderer hunting human prey in the Wisconsin woods this winter.

    I enjoyed the characters however it wasn't quite what i was expecting. I was kind of put off by the fact that the bad guy is a pedophile. If it wasn't for that aspect I would have really enjoyed the book, other than that it was good.

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

    In all fairness this really isn't my style of book. I just couldn't get interested in the story. I like that it was a donation to help a friend and can't really complain b/c it was free, but really didn't make it more than 10 minutes, blah.

    Such a heartwarming story with plenty of giggles. I didn't expect to get as sucked in as I did. Usually I am a mystery thriller horror story kind of reader but this was great. He is accurate on animal shelter operations and I love the message provided! A must for dog lovers!
