    When NBC decided to move Jay Leno into prime time to make room for Conan O'Brien to host the Tonight show - a job he had been promised five years earlier - skeptics anticipated a train wreck for the ages. It took, in fact, only a few months for the dire predictions to come true. Leno's show, panned by critics, dragged down the ratings - and the profits - of NBC's affiliates, while ratings for Conan's new Tonight show plummeted to the lowest levels in history.

    If you are interested in the Conan/Leno saga, this book is for you. The book also touches on various other late night talk show hosts you may be familiar with. Narration was spot on!

    From an award-winning New York Times investigative reporter comes an outrageous story of greed, corruption, and conspiracy, which left the FBI and Justice Department counting on the cooperation of one man.

    Story

    Narrator did a great job and made this detailed book very easy to listen to. This would have been a very "tedious" listen were it not for narrator.

    In a sentence, this book is about a man who balances being an FBI whistleblower, embezzler, and a company man all at the same time.

    Story was interesting and entertaining, just be prepared to get A LOT OF DETAIL! This isn't a quick listen.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Story

    Having read the book, I was disappointed in the narration. The narrator's rendition of Richie's various voices gave me a headache. It was just annoying. Every time Richie came into the story, I would turn down the volume as the narrator took the various voices WAY over the top. 47 hours of having to turn the volume up and down was not very enjoyable. The narrator just seemed to overact each of the characters which caused the listening experience for me to just feel uneven. It's still a Stephen King book, so the story was interesting, but the narration ruined the experience for me.

  • Making Jack Falcone: An Undercover FBI Agent Takes Down a Mafia Family

    At six-foot-four-inches and 375 pounds, Jack Garcia looked the part of a mobster, and he played his part so perfectly that his Mafia bosses never suspected he was an undercover agent for the FBI. "Big Jack Falcone," as he was known inside La Cosa Nostra, learned all the inside dirt about the Gambino organized crime syndicate and its illegal activities---from extortion and loan-sharking to assault and murder.

    Great story and wonderful narration. Story is a good balance of training and actual undercover work. Narrator avoids common narration trap of overacting the parts.
