  • City of Masks: A Cree Black Thriller

    Daniel Hecht has created a plausible, heart-stopping ghost thriller. Relying on the science of parapsychology to spine-tingling effect, he brings to life a remarkably compelling character in Cree Black, as well as the ghosts she confronts.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "Unusual thriller"
    "A Big Surprise!"
    Overall

    I don't particularly like the horror/ghost story genre. But, I love mystery stories. This is the first time I ever read a ghost story that used science as it basis for the underlying story. It was believable and plausible. Daniel Hecht is a very very descriptive writer, so I think that those people that didn't like it, would do so, for that reason. No matter what other reviews said, this is not a love/romance story (I would have turned it off early if that were the case). It is about a family tragedy that has literally come back to haunt them. I enjoyed this book and am now onto the sequel. BTW, Anna Fields is the best female narrator I have ever heard! The only woman that can do a man's voice and make it believable.

  • State of Fear

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    "Interesting topic for a lecture"
    Overall

    This perhaps would have been a interesting topic for a live one hour lecture or a seminar, but simply doesnt' work as a book. Crichton is a good enough writter to keep you "into" the book, but the topic certainly doesn't warrant 18 hours. I think the reader is good, unlike other listeners, but his problem, is that he make a lot of noises with his mouth...smacks his lips, swallows all the time, gulps, etc. That is definately annoying.

    In a thrilling narrative showcasing his gifts as storyteller and researcher, Erik Larson recounts the spellbinding tale of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. Also available abridged.

    D says: "A Rich Read!"
    "I quit!"
    Overall

    After reading the other reviews, I thought this book would be great. However, it was awful. Scott Brick is one of the best readers there is, but even he can't save this book. It is overly descriptive to the point of boredom, and takes over 3 hours of listening under you figure out what is going on. After 6 hours I quit!!!

    Hugh De Luc, a poor innkeeper, returns home from the First Crusade wearied from battle and disillusioned by carnage. After journeying from the Holy Land back to his own small village, he finds his nightmare is just beginning.

    Sheridan Race says: "Spellbound and engaged"
    "Pure Entertainment"
    Overall

    Don't look for to this book for a history lesson. Its a well written story that is pure entertainment. Yes, its a bit contrived, but it can be easily overlooked. Probably one of the best voice acting I have ever heard.
