    Adam March is a self-made “Master of the Universe.” He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting—until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Suzanne says: "The scare is in the human nature under stress."

    It may have been my mood, but the book was way too long. I couldn't wait until it was over. I even had to skip some of it.

    Shy, studious Irene Stenson and wild, privileged Pamela Webb had been the best of friends for one short high school summer. Their friendship ended the night Pamela dropped Irene off at home - and Irene walked in to discover her parents' bodies on the kitchen floor. It was ruled a murder-suicide, and Irene fled Dunsley, determined to wipe out every memory attached to her northern California hometown. But now she has been summoned back.

    Talismom says: "Decent book, not so decent narration"

    I really liked the book. It was difficult to put it down. The woman who played the main character was just perfect. My only complaint is that the male character sounded like no one I would call "sexy" or even "loving", yet the part he played in the book was both. He was just unbelievable.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"

    I tried and tried to get into this book, but alas, it just didn't happen. I found it extremely dull and didn't even finish it.

    Recently divorced writer Mort Rainey is alone at Tashmore Lake - that is, until a figure named John Shooter arrives, pointing an accusing finger.

    I was really disappointed. The plot was predictable. And, it was way too short. I wouldn't have purchased it if I knew it was only 5 hours long.

    Another fantastic story by the master story-teller, Stephen King. I use the books on tape on my ipod to keep me walking every day and it's working. I am getting a lot of exercise and enjoying every minute.

    The legend began in the obscure little town of Pico Mundo. A fry cook named Odd was rumored to have the extraordinary ability to communicate with the dead. Through tragedy and triumph, exhilaration and heartbreak, word of Odd Thomas' gifts filtered far beyond Pico Mundo, attracting unforgettable new friends - and enemies of implacable evil.

    This is my least favorite novel by Dean Koontz. I usually cannot wait until I get back to one of his books. This one, I couldn't wait to get through. It was just silly and very unbelievable. The main character was inane. I was surprised and expected more from him. (Dean Koontz)

    Stephen King and Peter Straub reintroduce you to Jack Sawyer of The Talisman, once a precocious boy traversing the Territories to save his mother and her "twinner," now a retired homicide detective drawn back to his past.

    This audiobook was fantastic. I couldn't stop listening to it. I just cannot imagine where he gets these ideas from. They are so far out. I agree, you may enjoy it more if you read "The Talisman" first.

    Story

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.

    Wonderful, exciting, spiritual, very, very interesting.
