    Story

    Each story was wonderful. Kathy, Matthew, Tim Curry, & SK did great with their narrations but the others failed to command attention. Boring voices maybe? Overall this audiobook was worth listening to and wonderful.

    Following Jane from her childhood as an orphan in Northern England through her experience as a governess at Thornfield Hall, Charlotte Brontë's Gothic classic is an early exploration of women's independence in the mid-19th century and the pervasive societal challenges women had to endure. At Thornfield, Jane meets the complex and mysterious Mr. Rochester, with whom she shares a complicated relationship that ultimately forces her to reconcile the conflicting passions of romantic love and religious piety.

    Story

    what a blissful narration. thandie Newton brought this book to life, with perfect character development, and feeling. Her interpretation of scenes was appropriate and thoughtful. I felt like she really understood how people acted in the period, and she was never wooden, never annoying. She gave just the right touch to Jane. Her voices for Yorkshire accents were epic. Her narration never distracted from. the story which was important to me, it just emerses you deeper into the plot.

    Twenty years ago, a boy named Jack Sawyer traveled to a parallel universe called the Territories to save his mother and her “Twinner” from an agonizing death that would have brought cataclysm to the other world. Now Jack is a retired Los Angeles homicide detective living in the nearly nonexistent hamlet of Tamarack, Wisconsin. He has no recollection of his adventures in the Territories....

    I remembered the last words of The Talisman as I listened to this story. It was lovely to hear of Jack's adult life. This story was pretty much as good as The Talisman. It's hard to follow that act but, this book held up well.

    Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

    Story

    I couldn't stop listening. But before you listen...
    Suspend the idea you would have behaved differently...it's a story not a biography.
    second: this moves pretty quickly. The character development is for the sake of the story, not for the sake of character development. That gave me a different enjoyment of this novel than say a more immersive character study...and to tell this story, it worked. Great job.
    This novel was very clear about what it wanted to be and it stuck to that task beautifully. I love the focus, the characters and the result.
    I would have liked to know more about Esther, other than that I can find no fault in this "I dun it" suspense novel.

    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

    This would have been a five star trilogy for me, except I struggled not to fast forward through the preachy parts. For example, Rudy's diatribes, and some of the world humanitarian views. Other than that, the action was perfect, and the character development was adequate for the peripheral characters.
    Thrilling ride.

    No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trychophyton. To everyone else it's Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies - before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

    What did you love best about The Fireman?

    Kate Mulgrew, references to Joe Hill's inspirations, Harold Lock and the Fire Man.
    The narrator can break even a great story - I hope she narrates more


    What other book might you compare The Fireman to and why?

    The Stand. The epic plagueness of it. But it wasnt a copy. Joe Hill is going into legend status and he is really just beginning. Ive read everything so far, before I knew he was Stephen King's son. If you are a King fan, Hill is an amazing progression.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to list, even my not so favorite scenes, like the scene where Harper left Nick and went to her house for a few hours...it was ok because Kate carried the story through even some parts I thought could have been set up better.


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

    It made me want to put it on repeat like an album.


    Any additional comments?

    If Kate Mulgrew was Joe's choice - he could not have found anyone better to read this. After listening to NOS4A2 I fell in love with Kate's voice, which means she does the story and the characters justice. She makes a scary story scary, makes sinister characters sinister...she does everything right and I find myself captured by her first word to the last without feeling a character (especially males and children) was short changed by her performance.

  • The Stone Man: A Science Fiction Horror Novel

    Nobody knew where it came from. Nobody knew why it came. When an eight-foot-tall man made of stone appears in the middle of a busy city center one July afternoon, two-bit (and antisocial) reporter Andy Pointer assumes it's just a publicity stunt. Indeed, so does everyone else...until the Stone Man begins to walk, heading silently through the wall of the nearest building, flattening it, and killing several people inside as a result.

    Story

    This wasn't on a best seller list, or a must read list...I came across the minimalist cover on audible and thought, well this is either going to be complete crap or brilliant. I don't use brilliant randomly, it was brilliant. Not Moby Dick brilliant, but more like Orwell brilliant. I've read a lot of books. I spend an average of 12 hours a day plugged into my audible library and besides that sounding antisocial, I've got a good handle on a story...whether it's good or just eh, or had poor execution. Read this book. As original as a story can get when all stories are a regurgitation. Smitherd doesn't take the easy way out, with the beginning, middle or end, which is to say he doesn't lose interest or give us crap love stories. Your money will not be poorly spent. I'll be getting more from this guy. Smitherd, hope your relatively young and not a heavy drinker, you need to stick around a while.

    My name is Marten Mann. I work for the devil, or the prince of lies, as you people are so fond of calling him. Yes. You read that last line correctly. I am employed by the powers of evil as acquisitor ad infinitum. I did not seek out this job: I was chosen for the position. To put it in simpler terms, I am a broker of sorts - you know, the guy who finds out what it is that you want the most. I make it readily available to you for a price. I think we all know just how costly that one thing that you think you need so much can be.

    Story

    Less simply, thought provoking. But not enough to ruin the entertainment. I love stories that bring you to care about the bad guys, not just vainly attempt to affect it, but succeed. Easily visualised as well, this great story because the author was very good at painting that picture. I guessed where mr Mann was headed sometimes, but the story was good, so I didn't care. The events remind me of Stephen King in that "everything's eventual".

    On a brisk autumn day, a 13-year-old boy stands on the shores of the gray Atlantic, near a silent amusement park and a fading ocean resort called the Alhambra. The past has driven Jack Sawyer here: His father is gone, his mother is dying, and the world no longer makes sense. But for Jack everything is about to change. For he has been chosen to make a journey back across America - and into another realm. One of the most influential and heralded works of fantasy ever written, The Talisman is an extraordinary novel of loyalty, awakening, terror, and mystery.
