    She won't rest until she's sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever. Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that's all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone. Her father was right. The monsters are real.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was not what I was expecting, and was pleasantly surprised that the direction this book took was not predictable.

    Story

    I have NO idea why this book is so popular! The author does a great job at character development, but just when you start to get interested in a story it ends, never to be revisited. When I realized that it was pointless to invest any time in any of the characters, as I would never learn any more of their story, I shut off the book. One of the few I never finished, and the only book that I can honestly say "The movie was SO much better than the book!"

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    I was reluctant to read this book as I am often disappointed in Stephen King's lack of a satisfying ending to most of his books. This book, however, had me in it's grip from the first word to the last.

    I wasn't expecting much when I started this book, but I was hooked right away. The ONLY thing I didn't like about this book was that it ended!

    The story of a pole, searching for his purpose in life. "The perfect gift to give a child or grandchild for their high school or college graduation. Also Father's Day. Also, other times."

    Story

    Full of bad puns, bad attempts at humor, and absolutely no point. I read the reviews & expected at least some humor, but I found none. The ONLY saving grace on my purchasing this book is the proceeds go to a good cause. I'd have rather just donated myself & saved the 8 minutes for a decent read.

    At last, one of the world’s greatest works of science fiction is available - just as author Stanislaw Lem intended it. To mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of Solaris, Audible, in cooperation with the Lem Estate, has commissioned a brand-new translation - complete for the first time, and the first ever directly from the original Polish to English. Beautifully narrated by Alessandro Juliani (Battlestar Galactica), Lem’s provocative novel comes alive for a new generation.

    I purchased this book because of the reviews, and I stuck it out until the end. It was a complete waste of a credit and my time. There really isn't any plot or point to this story.

    Story

    I remember reading this when it first came out in book form. I had remembered it as being one of my favorite books ever. When it came out in audio format I was afraid I'd remembered it wrong and that the book would be forever ruined for me in revisiting this story years later. I was wrong. I loved every second of it! Well worth every second spent listening!
