    In the best-selling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted. Heartwarming and redemptive, Oogy is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him "Oogy" (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own.

    For more than three decades John Saul has haunted the New York Times best seller list - and listeners imaginations - with his chilling tales of psychological suspense and supernatural horror. His instinct for striking the deepest chords of fear in our hearts and minds is unerring, and his gift for steering a tale from the light of day into the darkest depths of nightmare is at its harrowing best in House of Reckoning.

    As hard as this is to listen, part of the "A Child Called It" it just goes to prove what terrible things can be endured. I can't imagine the life that he speaks of...... Makes you rethink your whole "imagined" hard life as a child. Great, and a lesson in life to be sure.

    Jodi Picoult does it again. This was a great story, about the commitment "family" must have when a child is at stake. "House Rules" did not fail to deliver a great touching story.
