    AltaMira Pharmaceuticals releases Vigorex, a drug that allows people to sleep and experience R.E.M. while they're awake. A colorful cast of characters begin to take the drug, which if not taken properly will have hazardous consequences. But each of these people has undergone a deeply traumatic episode in their formative years, which will affect them in differing ways; murder, arson, kidnapping, vigilantism, among other crimes, will characterize their nightly personalities and send them crashing into one another.

    Maika says: "Captivating... you'll stay up late listening!"
    "Interesting, but a little slow."

    Any additional comments?

    This book was a little slow, especially when the author likes to give every single characters back story, even if they are not really vital to the story. But it was still rather interesting. Especially the dialogue at the very end. As crazy as this sounds, that one chapter was thought provoking enough for the entire book.

    One of the best-known stories in American culture, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has stirred the imagination of young and old alike for over 100 years. Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming The Dark Knight Rises, lent her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    Thomas M Clifford says: "In Time for the Holiday.Give the GIFT of a STORY!"
    "Huge Oz fan very pleased."

    What did you love best about The Wonderful Wizard of Oz?

    The world created in the book is beautiful and unlike any ficticious world you will find anywhere else.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The moral of the story, that the movie mainly confines to the last five minutes, runs throughout the entire book.


    Have you listened to any of Anne Hathaway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I was worried about the performance at first. I've never heard an actor move to audio book performances and was unsure if it would transfer. Anne Hathaway did an amazing job with this story though. Their were two voices that seemed a little goofy, but other than that, she did an amazing job. Her performance would especially be good for young listeners.
