    FBI behavioral psychologist Daniel Clark has been made famous by his argument that religion is one of society's greatest antagonists. What Daniel doesn't know is that his obsessive pursuit of a serial killer - known only as "Eve" - will end in his own death at Eve's hand. Twenty minutes later Daniel is resuscitated, only to be haunted by those 20 missing minutes.

    "Unforgivably bad writing"
    Overall

    I had to stop listening after a couple of hours. I just couldn't justify spending even recreational time listening to one over-written, repetitive, inelegant sentence after another.

    A typical phrase: "requiem of the dead."

    Say what?

    Finders Keepers is the remarkable true tale of an ordinary man faced with an extraordinary dilemma - what do you do when you find $1.2 million in unmarked bills? - and the fascinating reactions - from complicity to concern to betrayal - of the friends, family, and neighbors to whom he turns. From Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down.

    "Ummm, a little detail"
    Overall

    I found this book tedious and repetitive, as well as frustrating. It was painful to listen as the protagonist's meth-addled brain charted an increasingly loony and doomed course.

    The detail I refer to above is addiction. It seems that meth was the real main character.

    Story

    Jack St. Bride was a popular teacher and soccer coach at a girls' prep school when he was falsely accused of statutory rape. Released after eight months behind bars, he arrives in Salem Falls hoping to start fresh. He lands a job washing dishes at the local diner and even falls in love with the owner, Addie. But then a spoiled local girl accuses Jack of assault, forcing his past into the open and turning the town against him.

    Ella says: "Great Ride!"
    "Overwritten"
    Overall

    Picoult is a talented story-teller, but this novel suffers from lack of a careful editor. It is wordy, and often the words used are used incorrectly.dd

  • Unholy Messenger: The Life and Crimes of the BTK Serial Killer

    To all appearances, Dennis Rader was a model citizen in the small town of Park City, Kansas, where he had lived with his family almost his entire life. He was a town compliance officer, a former Boy Scout leader, the president of his church congregation, and a seemingly ordinary father and husband. But Rader's average life belied the existence of his dark, sadistic other self: he was the BTK serial killer.

    Vikki says: "A Haunting Factual Book on B.T.K."
    "Overwritten, tedious narration"
    Overall

    Ugh. How could such a fascinating story be so tedious? I can understand why the reader who lived near BTK found this interesting, but unless you have that kind of connection, you are likely to find this excruciatingly detailed and lacking dramatic intensity. The narrator's delivery was disconcertingly out of tune with the content.
