    Stephen King's first full-length solo novel since Dreamcatcher, the long-awaited From a Buick 8 is "nearly flawless and one terrific entertainment," says Publishers Weekly. A strange car acts as a conduit between our world and some other...and the boogeyman of this creepy story is our collective fascination with deadly things.

    J M says: "Essence of Stephen King"
    "One of my favorites"
    Overall

    I have read nearly every Stephen King book. This book is easily one of my favorites. The use of different readers makes you believe that you are sitting with the characters, drinking a beer, as they are telling the story. The novel's theme of loyalty and generational bonds is powerfully moving. I have re-read this book 4 times. The captivated me each time. Enjoy!

    The Ruins follows two American couples enjoying a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group, the young German who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig.

    "Captivated!"
    Overall

    I loved this book! It kept me interested even through the 2nd time I listened to it. My only complaint is that the characterization is a little overly stereotypical. The action and gore is truly riveting! This is one of my favorite books. I can see why King recommended it.

    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

    Do not waste your time!! This book was painful to get through. I am sorry I wasted the time and credits.

    As the story opens, Snowman is sleeping in a tree, mourning the loss of his beloved Oryx and his best friend Crake, and slowly starving to death. How did everything fall apart so quickly? Why is he left with nothing but his haunting memories? Alone except for the green-eyed Children of Crake, he explores the answers to these questions in the double journey he takes - into his own past, and back to Crake's high-tech bubble-dome, where the Paradice Project unfolded and the world came to grief.

    Doug says: "Very Scary Stuff"

    Overall

    Margaret, you have got to be kidding me? What kind of ending was that? At first I was convinced that I was missing the last part of the book. I feel cheated.
