    Dedicating the book "to my good friend & comrade, My Wife," L. Frank Baum published The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900, and it went on to become perhaps one of the most successful tales in the history of American children’s literature. Listeners new to the story and longtime fans alike will delight to join Dorothy and her friends in this timeless tale of the quest for courage, love, and a longing for Home.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have watched the Wizard of Oz on tv every year for many many years and had never read the book, so I was so suprised to find the movie is very different from the book. I would recommend it to any one who is a fan of the Wizard of Oz or the Wicked series. The reading was done very well and easy to listen to.

    Michelle was a young single mother when she was kidnapped by a local school bus driver named Ariel Castro. For more than a decade afterward, she endured unimaginable torture at the hand of her abductor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity, followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape on May 6, 2013, made headlines around the world.

    Michelle is the focus


    What does Maria Cabezas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    read very well, felt as if Michelle was reading it


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    very touching,


    Any additional comments?

    Being a true story of unbelievable torture for so many years, leaves one speechless. Admire Michelle for being able to continue under such conditions

    All the stories in this collection from Stephen King are related to the Vietnam War. King fans will recognize echoes of The Dark Tower series in the collection's first story, "Low Men in Yellow Coats." As the characters develop over the next four stories, King's version of the Vietnam War becomes one of his most frightening tales ever.

    Steve says: "Touching, Funny - Amazingly well written and read."
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I had read the first part of this book and found it very good reading, but found John Hurt's
    reading of it extremely good listening and was disappointed for a few minutes when Stephen King began reading( but of course really enjoyed his
    reading) was glad to hear John Hurt read the final part. The music is very short pieces at the end of some chapters and found it to add to the book.

    A terrible accident takes Edgar Freemantle's right arm and scrambles his memory and his mind, leaving him with little but rage as he begins the ordeal of rehabilitation.

    Amazon Customer says: "Play the Book and Let the Book Play You"
    "wonderful first pick"
    Overall

    I could not have picked a better first audio book to listen to. The talent of a great author with the reading talant of John Slattery, I dreaded the book to come to an end. I will look for more books read by Mr. Slattery and more written by Stephen King.
