    The Two Towers is the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the One Ring must be destroyed. Meanwhile, at Helm’s Deep and Isengard, the first great battles of the War of the Ring take shape. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe - hobbits, elves, and wizards - spring to life. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

    Jazz is a likable teenager. But he's also the son of a (now incarcerated) infamous serial killer, and "Dear Old Dad" has taught Jazz everything he knows. But what Jazz doesn't know is whether or not he is destined to follow in his father's footsteps. He knows he has urges, but he also knows that he has a conscience, that he can follow his own path. And so, in an effort to right his father's wrongs, Jazz decides to help the police (although they don't know it yet) hunt down "The Impressionist" - a new serial killer in town.

    Charlie Thurston's reading of this book made it a thrill ride. He made the serial killer sound real and creepy in a way that was visceral. Well done.
    Barry Lyga, Billy now surpasses Hannibal as my new favorite serial killer.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Forget everything you know about witches, vampires and for that matter reality. Dead Witch Walking turns the crime novel into something brand new. I loved the edginess of the book coupled with the power and venerability of the main character. Very entertaining indeed.

    Facing down an unprecedented malevolent enemy, the government responds with a nuclear attack. America as it was is gone forever, and now every citizen - from the President of the United States to the homeless on the streets of New York City - will fight for survival. In a wasteland born of rage and fear, populated by monstrous creatures and marauding armies, earth's last survivors have been drawn into the final battle between good and evil, that will decide the fate of humanity.

    Story

    I loved the story, from start to finish. I would call it a improved version of Stephen King's the Stand. It is an older book and is a little dated with its cold war implications.
    Not a must read, but I still would recommend it.

    Stein on Writing provides immediately useful advice for writers of fiction and nonfiction, whether newcomers or accomplished professionals. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of usable solutions, how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place."

    Great content if you are ready to write your first novel. After a while though it becomes bla bla bla.. as the reader just drones on and on.
    I replayed sections more than once, as I lost concentration because the reader is so dry.

    ZA really tells the story of how a Plague could overtake the planet. His Two types of zombies are original, you'll love it as they add a twisted detention to the story.

    Francis Sherman and Anna Demilio want only a vaccine, but to find it, they must cross a countryside in ruins, dodging not only the infected, but also the lawless living. The bulk of the storm has passed over the world, leaving echoing thunder and softly drifting ashes. But for the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure is just beginning.

    Recht is a great story teller but. Book one, was awesome, they way he the plague chased them around the world, however this book somehow lost its luster for me. He spent too much time in one place. Still worth the listen, and book three is great.
