    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    I have read all three books in this series and throughly enjoyed each and everyone. Well worth the time to start at the beginning and listen to all three. Can't wait for another one.

    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.

    I was really happy to finally listen to the old time Stephen King. I have not liked his last two non horror books. This one gets back to the Stephen King I grew up with and loved. A good horror novel. Thanks for writing one for the horror fans.

    For over a century, the New Hope Island vanishing has tantalized the world. How did 150 people disappear from a lonely Hebridean island, leaving no trace and no clues? Media magnate Alexander McIntyre decides to solve the mystery, and gathers a team of experts to mount an expedition to the island. He hopes running the story as a rolling exclusive will revive the fortunes of his flagship news-stand title. He hopes to find conclusive answers to questions that have teased a curious world for decades. And he wants his own secret theory triumphantly vindicated.

    Story

    I was bored from the beginning. I thought it would get better, but no. I listened until the last hour and a half and couldn't take wasting my time anymore. It was not exciting, not a thriller. It just basically talked about the lives of the people going on this expedition. Really never got into the mystery of how the people disappeared. Maybe, it got into that the last hour of the book, but I couldn't wait that long for some excitement. Don't waste your time.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    I thought for a Stephen King book, this one was a bit sappy. A coming to adulthood book, lost loves, a crippled boy etc. It really never got exciting. I was pretty much bored. I really wish King would go back to his later writings. More thrill and gore that catches you at the begining and never lets you go until the very end.

    I didn't find the third and final book of the Hunger Game series as enjoyable and exciting as the first two. It had a slow start and the overall rebellion was a bit boring and lacking any excitement as the other two books. It did get better towards the end. Unfortunately, you have to listen to the rest to get to the good parts.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

    I found this book to be really boring. It just seemed to repeat itself over and over. We realized that the main character saw bed bugs, but please....they kept repeating that for the next three hours of the book. The author could have gotten into the creepy part of the story much earlier. The best part of the book was the last thirty minutes. I wish they could have extended that part of the story. But no....it was a big snore fest.

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.
