    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone with insomnia...other than that...NO ONE!


    Has H.G. Wells Science Fiction Collection turned you off from other books in this genre?

    NO! This was just a bad choice for a narrator(s). The books are fantastic otherwise.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    The voice droned on...and on...and ....zzzzzzzzzzzz!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Major disappointment!


    Any additional comments?

    These 4 stories are classic and timeless. It's just ashamed the narrator(s) had to take the excitement and entertainment out of these stories.........I will not be getting any books narrated by...PETER BACHELOR, GEORGE EUSTICE, or ALAN MUNRO.

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy's investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with it. But Summer Place has other plans....

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

    I would....I thought it was a good listen...I haven't listened to the book "Hill House" (if there is one) I did see both movies tho, and this story was VERY similar.


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

    As I just stated..."Hill House" if there is such a book....because it was very similar.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    They were all very well done.


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

    A few reactions....laugh...mad....happy!

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Would you listen to John Dies at the End again? Why?

    Probably not....but, it was without a doubt one of the most interesting stories I've listened to in a long time!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David was...because he was so......clueless...and it's hard to put into words the way the author did!


    Have you listened to any of Stephen R. Thorne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No....I only bought this audio book because I had just seen the movie 3 nights earlier...and when I was looking for a book to purchase....here it was!


    If you could rename John Dies at the End, what would you call it?

    I think "John Dies at the End" is a much better eye catcher than "The Soy Sauce"

    It has been five years since Kip Howard saw his mother killed horribly by a blur of "little brown things."Five years of nightmares and a terror of dark places. Five years of struggling to overcome what must have been just his imagination... But the "untcigahunk," the Indian word for "little brothers," are no one's imagination. Hideous forest creatures who feed every five years on human flesh, the little brothers are about to emerge from underground once again.

    Would you listen to Untcigahunk again? Why?

    No....didn't like the ending


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    ???????????????? !


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

    He started out sounding a little mono-tone to me....but as I got further into the listen...his voice lent itself well to the Native American story line.


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't listen again, but, it's a good 1st time listen.

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Even tho I liked the audio version of this book.... after having watched the movie, a friend loaned me her hard bound copy of the book....which included a dictionary of "their language" I became sooo hooked....I bought every new soft cover that came out, following Paul's journey..........but, I never bought the final book.....it started going waaaaaaay out in left field, and I found it hard to understand! But this listen is very good!

    Would you listen to The Good House again? Why?

    Definately! If I run across a very good story...I will listen a few times.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mostly, because it was from the town my cousin lives in. But I found it to be a very engaging listen.


    What about Robin Miles’s performance did you like?

    I think she did a fantastic job at creating each character with her voice. I truly believed I was listening to each person, not just the narrator!


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

    Not particularly.


    Any additional comments?

    I am trying to expand my authors, and was very happy to find this author!
