  • The Husband

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

    David says: "Excellent read!"
    "Not the usual but good!"
    Overall

    Not what I expected from Koontz but very good! The characters were easy to like and the plot was good. The story flows along well and the action keeps you guessing! Get this one!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Kent says: "MUCH better than I ever expected! Give it a try!"
    "Enjoy!"
    Overall

    We enjoyed this title very much. The characters were developed in such a way that you got to know them and like most of them. There were a few clinkers in the bunch, listen to this and you will find them! There are real laughable moments and some sad. All in all, a great listen!

    They're out there...waiting...watching. Unseen by normal eyes, but all too visible to Slim MacKenzie, a young man blessed - or cursed - by Twilight Eyes.

    Joe says: "Highly Entertaining"
    ""Eye" say Read This Book!"
    Overall

    Once again a knock out punch from Koontz! This sort of was along the lines of Water for Elephants, well in is Dean Koontz sort of way. It is really good!

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Graham S. Stafford says: "Love the Camel Club"
    "Camel Club rides agian"
    Overall

    This book was good, maybe not as good as the other Camel Club books though. There are places where it sort of drags but all in all if you liked the others read this one.
    Maybe the next one will be better.

    At first glance, Lee might seem like an average 15 year old, shooting the breeze with his friends around a campfire, crushing on his friend Dana, sassing the assistant principal at school. But Lee has a little bit more responsibility than your average kid: he's the next Alien Hunter, bequeathed with the List of hidden alien outlaws living and lurking on Earth in disguise.

    Florence Peyrelongue says: "For Kids Only"
    "What?"
    Overall

    I must have missed that this book is for teenagers.
    This seems to be one of those books that Patterson lent his name to. I can't believe he wrote this. Don't waste your time, money, or credit on this one!

    Born into a respected Irish-Anglo family in 1860, Charles loves his native land and its long-suffering but irrepressible people. As a healer, he travels the countryside dispensing traditional cures while soaking up stories and legends of bygone times - and witnessing the painful, often violent birth of land-reform measures destined to lead to Irish independence.

    Kathy says: "Delightful"
    "We enjoyed Tipperary!"
    Overall

    My wife and I listen to a lot of audio books in the car as we travel. This was another fantastic story that lead us through "Ireland". With enjoyable characters and a plot that thickens as Ireland changes. We think you should hear this book and also the authors other book Ireland which is also wonderful!

    After he gets you to know and really like the characters, Mr. King then begins the fun! At first we thought this was a new turn for the great Mr. King but his true colors soon began to show! Relax and enjoy as the two stories become one!

    In a crowded courtroom in Mississippi, a jury returns a shocking verdict against a chemical company accused of dumping toxic waste into a small town's water supply, causing the worst "cancer cluster" in history. The company appeals to the Mississippi Supreme Court, whose nine justices will one day either approve the verdict or reverse it.

    On his last long walk, septuagenarian war hero, deserter, and professor Alessandro Giuliani shares his past with an illiterate young factory worker, spinning a remarkable tale of heart-stopping escapes, of loves unrequited and won, of madmen, dwarfs, and mafiosi. But overshadowing all is his most miraculous and terrible adventure, the Great War: a surreal parade of horrors that devastated and defined Alessandro, yet enabled him to experience fully the magic and beauty of the absurd human comedy called life.

    Stuart says: "Painting with words"
    "Good listen"
    Overall

    We enjoyed this book! It is a bit long and wordy but the story and characters are well written and the narrator keeps you interested.

    Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In a championship game, to the surprise and dismay of everyone, Rick actually got into the game and then provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But against enormous odds, Arnie finally locates another team that will have him: the mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy.

    David says: "Great Story, but..."
    "YUMMY!"
    Overall

    What a wonderful little book! This book really made us laugh and have a good time. Even if you are not a football fan you will really like the story and the characters!
    Get this one and have some fun!

    Kristin Burns is making her way in New York City. Her photos are being considered at a major Manhattan gallery, she works by day with two wonderful children, and the man of her dreams is almost hers for keeps. But just as everything she's ever wanted is finally within reach, her life changes forever with one murderous nightmare.

    Kathleen says: "Stay Away"
    "Who wrote this?"
    Overall

    This would qualify as a BAD Dean Koontz book! This is not what I expected from James Patterson. I kept waiting for this book to get better and it didn't happen.
    Stay away is a good warning!
