    A plan to destroy America, a hundred years in the making, is about to be unleashed. There is a powerful technique called the Overton Window that can shape our lives, our laws, and our future. It works by manipulating public perception so that ideas previously thought of as radical begin to seem acceptable over time. Move the Window and you change the debate. Change the debate and you change the country.

    If you could sum up The Overton Window in three words, what would they be?

    Even though this is a work of Fiction, Glen spells out a story that is, and even likley, to happen in the not so distant future.

    I'm not a Glen Beck Fan, but the Audio Book is very good. It will keep you on the edge of your virtual chair, and stimulate your thoughts and beliefs as well. Rcommend it.

    Ralph Roberts has an incurable case of insomnia, but lack of sleep is the least of his worries. Each night he stays awake, Ralph witnesses more of the odd activity taking place in Derry after dark than he wants to know. The nice young chemist up the street beats his wife and has delusions about beings he calls "The Centurions".

    Story
    Would you listen to Insomnia again? Why?

    Not for quite a while, the story is classic SK, but there are horrible sound effects added at inappropriate spots in the narration. This is distracting, and even irritating in some instances.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ralph is the main character, he is the good guy! Then Lois plays a great companion and partner.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Main dislike is the corny and amateur music that was added at the most inappropriate places. Good plot and story, typical SK.


    If you could rename Insomnia, what would you call it?

    No change


    Any additional comments?

    I would rate this 4+ except for the screwy music and sound effects. It's terrible and distracting. Te narration is good, just need to remove the sound effects.

  • The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

    Story

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Dark Tower the most enjoyable?

    The Dark Tower series is a very long set to listen to. The final Chapter, VII, ties the loose ends up, and we are allowed to let go. It fits in with the previous books, and has the SK trademark tales, stories within the story, tangents, but it all gets tied back into the main plot and we get closure


    Would you recommend The Dark Tower to your friends? Why or why not?

    I recommend this book, it is the final chapter, so it will not be as meaningful if the series has not been read.


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

    George is a top notch performer, his narration was well done.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, this is a very long series, and it can get boring in spots. For readers who don't mind or enjoy large volumes, in series, the it's a good set to listen to. It's worth listening to the first one or two, by then you'll know if your ready to continue or not.
