  • The Colorado Kid: A Hard Case Crime Novel

    No one but Stephen King could tell this story about the darkness at the heart of the unknown and our compulsion to investigate the unexplained. With echoes of Dashiell Hammett's The Maltese Falcon and the work of Graham Greene, one of the world's great storytellers presents a surprising tale that explores the nature of mystery itself.

    Dammschippee says: "Gotcha!"
    "Not close to his best."
    Overall

    Might even be his worst. I am a huge S King fan but wow he really lays an egg here. Really good performance by the reader though.

    Chuck Palahniuk's world has always been, well, different from yours and mine. These pieces from Stranger Than Fiction, his first nonfiction collection, prove just how different, in ways both highly entertaining and deeply unsettling.

    Brooke P. Anderson says: "Excellent and hilarious"
    "The good stuff."
    Overall

    I really enjoyed these funny/crazy stories. Chuck P. is always a great listen.

  • Dry: A Memoir

    Story
    (197)

    At the request (well, it wasn't really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey Jr. are immediately dashed by grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. When Augusten is forced to examine himself, he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken Manhattan life - and live it sober. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a Higher Power

    Heidi says: "Sobriety with a sense of style...."
    "Quirky and touching"
    Overall

    Very interesting and touchingly halarious read.

    This unprecedented audio project is as thought-provoking as it is mesmeric. The Night Listener is a meditation on the power of voices and the faith we place in them, and an extraordinary audio experience from an American literary icon.

    Naomi says: "Wheels within wheels"
    "Cool story from a different point of view."
    Overall

    This is a fun read with some very beautiful moments told from a different POV than my own. I liked it a lot.

    Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk's controversial and blazingly original debut novel, introduced a fresh and even renegade talent to American fiction, one who has retooled the classic black humor of Terry Southern and Kurt Vonnegut for the lunacy of the millennial age. In this novel, Choke, he gives listeners a vision of life and love and sex and mortality that is both chillingly brilliant and teeth-rattlingly funny.

    glamazon says: "Oh please, not another abridged!!!"
    "A great freakshow of a read."
    Overall

    This was a fun listen from a very strange protaganists point of view. Halarious, beautiful, and strange.

    Robert McKee's students have taken Hollywood's top honors, including 11 Writers Guild of America Awards, 17 Academy Awards, and 79 Emmy Awards.

    Awesome insight into writing screenplays and telling stories.
