    In The Wind Through the Keyhole, Stephen King has returned to the rich landscape of Mid-World. This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if they had read at least the first 4 books of the series. I think it fits well in the series, but just picking it up first could be a little confusing, and may throw the readers off of what the rest of the books are like.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Wind Through the Keyhole?

    Tim's travel through the endless forest


    Any additional comments?

    A lot of people are giving this book a bad review because Stephen King himself narrates it. I felt that he did a good job, and I loved the story. It was get back into a story about Roland and his ka-tet. It is odd how much you almost miss characters in a book when you are done reading it and you know the adventure is over. I think Mr. King did a great job in taking us back to Mid-World without messing up the rest of the story. I wouldn't mind if he did it a few more times.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Story

    I won't spoil anything, but the first of the book is really depressing. However, Justin Cronin picks it up after that and does a great job. It's a relief to know that not all authors think that vampires should glitter in the sun. I just started reading the next book "The Twelve" and cannot wait for the last one.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Story

    I read this book because of Peter Clines' other book "14". I have to say that I was not disappointed with this one. The story was short, fast paced, and had good characters. My only problem had to do with logistics. How have they survived so long without water? Maybe I missed something, but they are in L.A. I'm pretty sure the water stop running quickly without anyone keeping it going.

    In The Dragon Factory, Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences square off against two separate groups of corrupt scientists. The beautiful but twisted Jakoby Twins are creating transgenic monsters and genetically enhanced mercenaries for sale to the highest bidder. Their father, who takes evil to an entirely new level, is using cutting-edge science to complete the Nazi master-race program.

    Story

    I liked the science (don't know if it's plausible, but I still liked the idea), but get out of Joe's head. I really like Ray Porter as a narrator, and I started listening to the Joe Ledger stories because he is the Narrator. However, he started driving me crazy when it would go on and on about Grace, how mad he was, and how he was going to shove his fist down someone's throat.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    I got this book because of the awesome reviews it got. All I can say is that trust them. This book is short, but worth the credit or cash. Ray Porter does a great job narrating. The story is fast paced and keeps you wondering. Great characters and storyline.

    The year is 2380. The Intersolar Commonwealth, a sphere of stars some 400 light-years in diameter, contains more than 600 worlds, interconnected by a web of transport "tunnels" known as wormholes. At the farthest edge of the Commonwealth, astronomer Dudley Bose observes the impossible: Over 1,000 light-years away, a star...vanishes. It does not go supernova. It does not collapse into a black hole. It simply disappears.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended this book, but only to Sci-Fi fans. This book takes a while to get to the good stuff. So if you are already a fan of Sci-Fi this story may turn you off from the genre.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say Ozzie. Mostly because he was an honest character.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    John Lee does a great job on the most part with keeping the characters separate. Some of the character voices drive me crazy, but at least I know who is talking without him saying "Ozzie said"


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way. It took me a week to get through the first part.

    Overall

    I started reading this story because a friend of mine recommended it while they were reading the second book of the series. I enjoyed the first book, and thought the second one was pretty good. At least as far as sequels go. When I told that friend that I was on the last one they gave me a funny look. I now understand why. Talk about a let down. I'm no writer, so I don't feel right about criticizing most of the time. But if you're going to write a trilogy at least put some effort into the ending. The story was going good until the very end of the book. It's like the author lost interest in writing and just gave up. Maybe she was trying to think of a good ending and realized that the ending doesn't matter. Because the people that have ready the other two will almost have to buy this one as well just to satisfy their curiosity. Be Advised, DO NOT START READING THIS TRILOGY!!!
