    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    I could not stop listening, Spent the whole weekend listening, you will find you sitting in your car after you have arrived, listening to the story because you do not want to leave your car.
    The ending is a complete surprise, you will not see it coming at all.

    Stephen King has taken the debate of time travel and changing past events, to improve the now / future. Jake is a great open person that is likable.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    What did you love best about The Burning Room?

    Harry!. Do I need to write any more?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry of Course!. I love the complex and deep character of Harry. If you have not listened to any of the Harry Bosch series, Start from the Beginning. That is my best Advice, you will fall for this character and the way Michael brings Harry to life. He is not always 100% Legal but he is always looking for the Truth in the crime and making everyone matter....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Harry looking out for his daughter. It makes you connect with him as I am a father.

    The first collection of stories Stephen King has published since Nightmares & Dreamscapes nine years ago, Everything's Eventual includes one O. Henry Prize winner, two other award winners, four stories published by The New Yorker, and "Riding the Bullet", King's original e-book, which attracted over half a million online readers and became the most famous short story of the decade. Intense, eerie, and instantly compelling, they announce the stunningly fertile imagination of perhaps the greatest storyteller of our time.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Some are GREAT 1408, The Killing Room, Gotham Cafe, and maybe a few others. But for 10 or so duds is not a reason to keep this book. I just have not had any luck with Stephen Kings short stories. I was not a fans of Dreamscapes either.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    Most of the Stories were Bland and I can see why these never made it to full novels.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I Like almost all of the readers, I feel that the stories had more to do with how well I enjoyed the Book, more than the Reader doing the reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that more were not better stories.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be asking for a Refund of my credit.

    In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mr. Mercedes to be better than the print version?

    I always consider the Audio better, but the print does let your own mind run loose with it own vocals. Mr. Patton does a fabulous job with the book, I could not ask for a better reader for this book. the characters need his voice for the read to work.


    What other book might you compare Mr. Mercedes to and why?

    Doctor Sleep! would be best to compare it to. Really Good People put in touch with REALLY EVIL People / Person. and the train wreck is going to happen, and you can not stop turning the chapters until you have to go to sleep. Forget reading to the kids I have a book I am listening to, talk to me about it two days from now when I am Done.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the three last characters crack the Laptop Password and Really Learn the Plan of Mr. Mercedes! The way they all could be blown over with a feather in the surprise of his plans.


    If you could rename Mr. Mercedes, what would you call it?

    It is a great Title.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a Great Listen, I would, if i could refund your credit if you do not like it.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is not your NORMAL Stephen King! If you are not a Fan of King you may Enjoy it.
    It is for someone who can not suspend reality in the second or third chapter or hours.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen King’s story?

    He wraps the whole book up in the last hour. W A Y to much build up. This must have been one of the books he kept in the bottom drawer of the desk and pulled it out for deadline needs. I hope the Next one is better. I own almost all of Kings Books in Audible and This besides his short stories has to be the worst i have read / Listened to.


    What about David Morse’s performance did you like?

    David, was a believable voice for the character he was reading for. He kept the pace of the book moving even in the very slow places, which there is many.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    The demon is a mob, and the mob is demonic. The Democratic Party activates mobs, depends on mobs, coddles mobs, publicizes and celebrate mobs - it is the mob. Sweeping in its scope and relentless in its argument, Demonic explains the peculiarities of liberals as standard groupthink behavior. To understand mobs is to understand liberals.

    The book Could not have been Proven to be more timely than to have the Occupy Wall Street MOBS, take to the streets AFTER she puts the book out To Make What Ann Coulter States True. You would almost accuse The OWS MOB being part of a VAST Right Wing Plot to make Ann's Book Sell More copies.

    The Older I get the more conservitive I become. I never would have even thought that I would ever be agreeing with Ann, but I have to agree that that is how I and friends behaved in college, to get our way or point across to the MAN.

    We were a mob, and the democratic party is paying for the parks for the OWS Mob to sleep in. Liberal companies are sending food to feed the MOB.

    The book DEMONIC is a Lesson of the past coming to your TV today.

    Walter Wangerin, Jr. makes the Bible come alive in detail with The Book of God. Wangerin reveals the humanity and eternal messages behind the text. The Book of God is a sweeping history that covers thousands of years and hundreds of lives, in a myriad of foreign yet familiar cultures. The award-winning Wangerin has produced his magnum opus, a timeless masterpiece that rekindles the imagination and nurtures the spirit.

    "This is Not the Book of G-D"
    Overall

    The Author takes more than artistic licence with the Torah, and butchers the rest of the Bible!

    There is no G-d in this book. Period.
    If you have not read the Bible,
    The Bible is not a collection of stories of dysfunctional families,alduterous characters and incestuos rapist. Not enough, the author also let Tamra "fell in love" with is brother Solomon.

    Please skip the New Testament go straight to the End. The teaching of Jesus is not much present. Instead the disciples seem a bunch of people that just want to know who, among them, Jesus loves most. I am very very disappointed. The Teaching of Jesus is so out of order that you would not know he started with the Bible.

    John & James are the Sons of Thunder! Not Wimps!!!

    The Torah and the Gospels are so inspiring and so wonderful written and so powerful... so divine.

    READ or LISTEN TO THE REAL THING NOT THIS BOOK!

    This book will confuse any new person of faith. Paul was Jewish and NEVER taught against Moses (The TORAH) This book takes the bible text out of a Jewish meaning teaching of gentiles in the Synagoges.

    Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. firm with 800 lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was 3 years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience. But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Also available abridged.

    Nelson says: "A Gem"

    He wastes his talents making social commentary instead of telling a good story. The plot is very linear and predictable, devoid of any suspence. Dreadful.
