    It's the middle of the night. Prosecutor Alexandra Cooper is called to Harlem's Mount Neboh Baptist Church, a beautiful house of worship originally built as a synagogue. But the crowd gathered there isn't interested in architecture, or even prayer. They've come for the same reason Alex has: to find out why the body of a young woman has been decapitated, set on fire, and left burning on the church steps.

    Barbaba Rosenblat has a very flexible voice. At times I thought there were more than one reader. She does an excellent job portraying the different characters.

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Where does Odd Apocalypse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Odd and all the books in the series.


    Have you listened to any of David Aaron Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I only know David as Odd, he suits the role very well


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was a little slow in the beginning, but difficult to put down once I was in to it.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Amazon Customer says: "An exceptional story, but I miss George Guidall."

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I love it when Stephen King reads his own books. Others might read it better, but there is something special about an authors reading their own books.

    Great read, hard to put down. Sorry when it was over.

    It was the standard blackmail scheme. For years, sultry Lysa Dean's name on a movie had meant a bonanza at the box office. Now a set of pictures could mean the end of her career.When first approached for help by lovely Dana Holtzer, Lysa's personal secretary, Travis McGee is thoroughly turned off by the tacky details. But being low on cash, and tenderly attracted by the star's intriguingly remote secretary, McGee sets out to locate his suspects -- only to find that they start turning up dead!

    Grace says: "stark hollywood"
    "Good read, John D. McDonald never disappoints."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Quick Red Fox to be better than the print version?

    yes


    What about Robert Petkoff’s performance did you like?

    I really liked Robert Petkoff's performance, however, I missed Darren McGavin. His voice is who I think on when I think of Travis McGee


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No I liked the continuation of characters that I have known for many years, but standing alone I would not have enjoyed it much. There was a surprising conclusion which I enjoyed.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Patricia Cornwell again?

    Yes.

    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.

    Kelly says: "I Owe Stephen King An Apology"
    "Stephen King gets better with every book!"

    Any additional comments?

    It was an audiobook I could not stop listening to, and one I was sad when it was over. Amazing!!!
