    Story

    I found this fascinating but hard to follow. I don't know if it was cut out for audio because as you were listening it felt like it was jumping around and I wasn't always sure what was going on. I think I will read her sequel to this rather than listen. I wasn't sure if I liked it while I was listening but now that it is over I find myself thinking of the novel quite a bit.

    A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    Story
    What did you love best about Dead of Night?

    The zombies were original and pretty gross. I would run screaming from them!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept of how the zombies came to be and the characters reaction to them made the story believable. It left me hoping the government isn't working on anything that crazy.


    What about William Dufris???s performance did you like?

    William Dufris isn't a narrator who reads with the same inflection all the time, he puts some serious acting into his voice.


    If you could take any character from Dead of Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    If I had to take someone out to dinner from this book it would be JT, because Dex is just to scary.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    haesel says: "Where was this woman's editor?"
    "The middle was boring"
    Overall

    At first I thought this was going to be a mystery and a good one at that but then it turned to romance which surprised me and was not all together believable. The middle section of the book, the main character changes from intelligent and willful to dependent on her man. I got interested in the book again when the pace picked up and was more focused on an outcome rather than a semi believable romance. The book ends just as it was getting really good, even though I was irritated it took so long to be as good as it promised to be in the beginning, I will listen to the next in the series.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Henrik says: "What an incredible audio book"
    "Stuck in my head"
    Overall

    This is one of the books that you will read and it will stay in your head forever. The characters and the slow meltdown of society is something that will stay with me, especially as I look around at our world today and see bits and pieces of it happening now.

    There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska... and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go. The Duncans want Reacher gone - and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment, and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy.

    Ed says: "Classic, Kick-Butt Jack Reacher"
    "Reacher's Back"
    Overall

    In the last novel, Reacher wasn't as impressive as he was before, but in this novel He's Back and tougher. I can't wait until the next book comes out!

    When a NASA satellite discovers an astonishingly rare object buried deep in the Arctic ice, the floundering space agency proclaims a much-needed victory, a victory with profound implications for NASA policy and the impending presidential election. To verify the authenticity of the find, the White House calls upon the skills of intelligence analyst Rachel Sexton. Accompanied by a team of experts, including the charismatic scholar Michael Tolland, Rachel travels to the Arctic and uncovers the unthinkable.

    Mark says: "Some people are too picky -- This is a must"
    "Another fun and exciting book from Dan Brown"
    Overall

    Fast-paced action with a strong likable heroine, despicable foes, and sometimes more information than you can process. If you liked Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code you will also enjoy Deception Point although it has nothing to do with religious history.
