    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. Typical King. Great story, terrible ending.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Bought another book


    What does Craig Wasson and Jessica Hecht bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They were great. The voices really brought things to my imagination.


    Could you see Full Dark, No Stars being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

  • The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Story

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."

    OMG! It was great! I don't even know about racing of any kind and it didn't matter. I love the narrators voice and the story was fabulous!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course Enzo!


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Evan Welch’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of that and them some.


    Any additional comments?

    I reccomend this book to any lover of dogs. It will give you the most interesting perspectives.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tales from the Dugout to be better than the print version?

    No. The narrator was kinda boring. I expected a little more emotion given such a fun subject matter.


    What other book might you compare Tales from the Dugout to and why?

    Ken Burns' Baseball all ten innings.


    What three words best describe Patrick Cullen’s voice?

    Not emotional enough


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't know

    Pastor Joel Osteen writes how we can generate Friday's level of contentment and joy every day of the week. Known as a man who maintains a constant positive outlook in spite of circumstances, Osteen has described this message as a core theme of his ministry. Combining his personal experiences with scriptural insights and principles for true happiness, he shows listeners how every day can hold the same promise and opportunities for pure joy that they experience at five o'clock on Friday.

    What did you love best about Every Day a Friday?

    The empowerment it gave me to find myself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author and because I have listened to all of his books.


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

    It goes right in line with the rest. God is our power and to think and trust in Him.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That it is okay to ignore certain things about other peoples personalities and I have that right.

    What made the experience of listening to A Dog's Purpose the most enjoyable?

    Well the narration was perfect.
    The story was amazing! It was sad, happy, funny, terrible, awesome and just heartwarming!
    I could listen to this book alot. It is not just a one time deal.


    What other book might you compare A Dog's Purpose to and why?

    The Art of Racing in the Rain. I first heard of this book at the local PetCo from the traininer there. It took a while but I finally found Audible.com and dowloaded it. It gave me many of the emotions from the abovementioned book but A Dog's Purpose just went deeper.
    Both books are a fabulous listen and I would highly reccomend them to any animal lover but to ALL Dog lovers.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end, I won't give it away. It broke my heart and made my heart smile all at once.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I'm a frontseat Dog!


    Any additional comments?

    I just can't say enough. I really loved this book.
